Could Chelios return to play with sons?

Chris Chelios retired from the NHL in 2010, but could he be considering a comeback?

Chelios, 51, told reporters in Toronto that he would consider playing in Europe if his sons play hockey overseas.

His sons Dean, 24, and Jake, 22, play for the hockey team at Michigan State University.

"My guys are seniors in college now, and if for some crazy [reason] they don't make it [to the NHL], which, realistically there's just not enough jobs, I wouldn't hesitate," Chelios said. "I'm staying in shape to go to Europe, pick a good country and take my whole family over there and go play with them there. Like Switzerland. I've been there. Who knows? We've done crazier things in our family."

Nylander's goal lifts Sweden past U.S. at Four Nations

William Nylander, a top prospect for the 2014 NHL Draft, scored the game-winning goal at 11:49 of the third period to give Sweden a 3-2 win against the United States at the 2013 Under-18 Four Nations Tournament, being held in Turku, Finland.

With Sweden skating on a 5-on-3 power play, Nylander beat U.S. goalie Edwin Minney.

Nylander, who plays for Rogle in Sweden's second division, earned an "A" rating from NHL Central Scouting in its preliminary list of players to watch for the 2014 draft. He is the son of former NHL center Michael Nylander.

Nylander's goal came after Jack Eichel's second goal of the game tied things at 8:11 of the third. Eichel, who plays for the United States National Team Development Program's under-18 team, also had a power-play goal in the second period. He is eligible for the 2015 NHL Draft.

Flyers' Downie feeling better, could return Saturday

Philadelphia Flyers forward Steve Downie skated Thursday as he continues his recovery from a concussion sustained during a game against the Washington Capitals on Nov. 1.

Downie spent Friday and Saturday in a hospital being evaluated. He was released Sunday.

"I wasn't too scared," he told reporters in Philadelphia. "It was precautionary reasons. They got a couple X-rays done. It's healing well. Should be back soon."

The injury occurred during a fight with Washington's Aaron Volpatti. It was Downie's first game back with the Flyers since being acquired in a trade with the Colorado Avalanche on Oct. 31.

Stars' trip to Detroit important for more than Nill

The Dallas Stars' game Thursday at the Detroit Red Wings is big for Stars general manager Jim Nill, who spent 19 years with the Red Wings' organization before leaving for Dallas during the summer. But the game is big for the Stars as a whole.

The Stars won the first two games of their three-game trip and a sweep would make the return flight to Texas that much more fun.

"We've got that opportunity [to sweep], but we know this is a tough building to play in," Stars coach Lindy Ruff told the Dallas Morning News. "We knew Boston was going to be a tough building too. They gave us a push in the first 10 minutes and our push back was even greater. It was good to see. You're going to face that challenge in some buildings and the home team is going to garner the edge, but you have to take it away from them."

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.

— Los Angeles Kings general manager Dean Lombardi on maintaining their success from last season
