Draisaitl has 'good showing' in Oilers scrimmage

By all indications, Leon Draisaitl's bid to make the Edmonton Oilers got off to a good start Friday.

Draisaitl, who made history in June as the highest-drafted German-born player when the Oilers selected him with the third pick, skated on a line with David Perron and Benoit Pouliot.

After the scrimmage, coach Dallas Eakins had praise for the way Draisaitl looked.

"We know he's going to be an Oiler," Eakins said. "Whether that's this year, we're not sure, but he had a good showing today."

The Vancouver Canucks signed Radim Vrbata this offseason with the intent of playing him alongside Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin.

"By the end hopefully we're on the same page, but you could see that if you get open for them and get a little space, they'll find you, so that will be my job to find open ice and be ready for passes," Vrbata said after the Canucks practiced for a little over an hour.

Gagne enjoying his opportunity with Bruins

After sitting out last season, Simon Gagne is happy to have another chance at playing in the NHL. The veteran forward is in training camp with the Boston Bruins on a tryout contract.

"I was pretty happy that Boston called," Gagne, 34, told CSNNE.com Thursday. "I was looking for a team like them that wanted to go back and win a [Stanley] Cup, and a team that made sense with some open spots. They're going to give me my chance. I think not playing last year really makes me energized, and now I really want to play again."

In 13 NHL seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers, Tampa Bay Lightning and Los Angeles Kings, Gagne has 287 goals and 597 points in 799 regular-season games. He's scored at least 20 goals seven times, and was part of the Kings team that won the Stanley Cup in 2012.

Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter reported to training camp with a heavy heart this season.

Suter's father Bob, a member of the "Miracle On Ice" 1980 U.S. Olympic team, died suddenly on Sept. 9.

In difficult times, Suter has had his teammates and the support of the Wild organization to lean on. Owner Craig Leipold flew the team to Minnesota so all of the players could attend Bob Suter's funeral.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
