Oilers encouraged by Belov's play

An Edmonton Oilers team that was criticized last season for its lack of depth on defense was bolstered by the offseason signing of Andrew Ference. But there was another veteran defenseman acquired during the summer in the hopes of building depth on the back end.

Anton Belov may have come into camp as an unknown entity, but his improvement during the course of the preseason is earning him praise from Oilers brass. The 27-year-old spent the past five seasons playing with Avangard Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League before being signed by Edmonton in May.

He may be new to the NHL, but Below isn't playing like a rookie.

Panthers' Thomas enjoys first game back in NHL

Tim Thomas is back in the NHL.

Thomas played the first half of the Florida Panthers' preseason game against the Tampa Bay Lightning in Estero, Fla., on Thursday, a few hours after agreeing to a one-year contract with the team.

The 39-year-old allowed one goal on 10 shots in his first action since April 2012 before being replaced by Jacob Markstrom in a game the Panthers lost 3-2 in overtime.

"It felt good for being the first time in a game-like atmosphere for 15 months," Thomas told the Miami Herald. "I think it was a necessary step for me. I thought it was good not to wait. We're running out of preseason games. I feel ready now."
