John Scott ready to have fun in All-Star Game

Friday, 01.29.2016 / 4:11 PM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

NASHVILLE -- John Scott didn't want to forget the signature moment of his 2016 Honda All-Star Weekend to date, so he turned the tables on the horde of media gathered around his riser during Media Day at Bridgestone Arena.

After finishing his question-and-answer session, Scott had some commands for the crowd of journalists.

"That it?" he asked after the last question of the 13-minute session. "All right, don't move!"

As the media members laughed, Scott pulled out his cell phone to take a picture of the crowd.

"Everyone smile now," he said, flashing a smile of his own as he clicked the shutter.

Devils' Schneider hopes new pads make sweet music

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

NASHVILLE -- Now that he has his honky-tonk pads with guitars that cross when he closes his five-hole, New Jersey Devils goalie Cory Schneider is excited about the possibilities of his flashy equipment.

He needed to be convinced it was a good idea when it was first brought up to him by Scott Hughes, his rep with Vaughn Hockey, the company that makes the pads.

"I was a little hesitant at first because I guess it's not my style," Schneider said. "They talked to the League and the League was all excited about it, and I just said, 'What the heck.' Now I can use them for charity or auction them off, do something productive with them. It's a win-win."

Roman Josi - Special to

Nashville Predators defenseman Roman Josi is one of four hometown players set to appear in the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Skills Competition on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, Rogers, TVA) and the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday (5 p.m. ET; NBCSN, Rogers, TVAS). He is joined by defenseman Shea Weber, forward James Neal and goalie Pekka Rinne. Josi is doing a blog for this weekend to detail his experiences.

This is the first installment.

NASHVILLE -- It's been a crazy, but fun day so far. This is my first All-Star Game, so everything is new for me.

I had an event this morning that was a community event where we dedicated the Legacy Family Life Center building that serves the Nashville Inner City Ministry. It was a lot of fun and seeing the kids and how happy they were, it was just great. Daniel Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks and Dustin Byfuglien of the Winnipeg Jets were there also. We caught up a little bit there, but I drove there separately because I'm not staying at the players' hotel. I'm still in my house because the game is here.

Predators' Neal gladly changed plans for All-Star spot

Robby Stanley - Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- With four participants for the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday (5 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports), the Nashville Predators will be well-represented as the host team.

Predators defensemen Shea Weber and Roman Josi, along with goaltender Pekka Rinne, were joined on the Central Division team by forward James Neal on Thursday. Neal replaced Chicago Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews (illness).

Neal previously had vacation plans but was more than willing to cancel when told that he was going to be an All-Star.

"To be a part of this weekend is going to be amazing," he said.

Country music star Gill set for NHL All-Star spotlight

Friday, 01.29.2016 / 3:50 PM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Bill Price - Editor in Chief

NASHVILLE – Vince Gill, a Nashville Predators season-ticket holder since the team's inaugural season in 1998-99, has plenty to do during 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend.

He will sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" with his daughter, Corrina, before the 2016 NHL Honda All-Star Game on Sunday (5 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports) and also will serve as a celebrity coach for the game.

The singing part is easy. Gill is a country music legend who has won 20 Grammy Awards.

The coaching part? That's another story, but he will take a cue from former Predators coach Barry Trotz on how to act behind the bench.

Jets' Byfuglien letting trade chatter roll off his back

Friday, 01.29.2016 / 3:48 PM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

NASHVILLE -- Winnipeg Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien insists he isn't allowing the trade chatter around him to get in the way of how he goes about his business on a day-to-day basis.

Byfuglien can be an unrestricted free agent after this season, and with the Jets struggling he has been the subject of rumors with the 2016 NHL Trade Deadline coming soon, now a month away (3 p.m. ET on Feb. 29).

"I'm the guy that just lets it roll (off my back)," Byfuglien said. "It doesn't bother me at all. It's business. It doesn't matter even if I have a contract. That date is set and it comes down to that day for everyone. No one is safe. It gets into the back of your head, but it's nothing that I'm worried about. Business is business. I think either side is going to be OK on it. It's something I just gotta go with."

Lightning learned lesson from slow start: Stamkos

Friday, 01.29.2016 / 3:38 PM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

NASHVILLE -- Steven Stamkos and his future is still the biggest storyline in Tampa, perhaps even in the entire NHL, but amidst the noise and rumors, the Tampa Bay Lightning have found some traction in what was until recently looking like a disappointing season.

The Lightning went into the NHL All-Star break having won nine of 11 games in January, including seven in a row at one point. They're second in the Atlantic Division with 58 points after entering the month in sixth place, five points shy of second and three points out of the second wild card from the Eastern Conference into the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Stamkos said the Lightning's turnaround began with what he called a "look in the mirror" performance in a 3-1 loss at the Calgary Flames on Jan. 5.

"We didn't play very well, myself included, and we needed more," Stamkos said. "It's been nice to see. It's been nice to go on this run. But at the same time, we're not in the clear. We're right in the thick of things. We need to consistently have the effort that we've had lately and we'll be OK."

Oilers' McDavid unsure on return after break: report

Friday, 01.29.2016 / 3:11 PM / News

Edmonton Oilers rookie forward Connor McDavid said he feels good after taking contact in practice for the first time since fracturing his collarbone in early November but it is unknown if he will play in the first game after the All-Star break.

McDavid is practicing with Bakersfield of the American Hockey League but will not play any games for them.

"The whole point of this was kind of to take some contact," McDavid told "I was cleared for contact right before the All-Star break. I didn't have a chance to do that with the guys [in Edmonton] so it's a good chance down here to take some bumps and really battle hard and test it out and see how it feels. … I've already taken a few [bumps] down here and I feel pretty good."

Mike Battaglino - Staff Writer

NASHVILLE -- Someone's all-star dream started today at what used to be a flooded lumber yard.
The National Hockey League and Nashville Inner City Ministry on Friday unveiled a 30,000-square-foot space that dozens of children already were using to stick-handle and shoot street hockey balls at brand-new nets.
