Sharks' Marleau can see Burns back at forward: report

San Jose Sharks forward Patrick Marleau said Friday he could see Brent Burns return up front after being moved back to defenseman to start this season.

"I wouldn't be surprised if they moved him back to forward," Marleau told CSN Bay Area. "He can play any position. That says a lot about him, but I think that's a great tool for this organization to use, wherever they need to fill a hole."

Burns played his first full season as a forward in 2013-14 after being moved there from defense. He finished with 22 goals and 26 assists for a career high 48 points in 69 games.

Stamkos, Bishop fully practice with Lightning

Forward Steven Stamkos and goaltender Ben Bishop each was a full participant Friday in the first on-ice session of Tampa Bay Lightning training camp.

Stamkos (leg) and Bishop (wrist, elbow) each are recovered from injuries sustained last season.

“It's fun to get your competitive juices going again and going against the guys full speed," said Bishop, who had offseason surgery. "So, that was fun. It felt good out there. I didn't get tired. I felt like I was in pretty good shape, so I was happy about that."

Capitals' Ovechkin moving back to left wing

Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin will be back at left wing to start the 2014-15 season.

That's the decision new Capitals coach Barry Trotz made Friday.

"He's better on the right side a little bit defensively, but his talent is on the left side," Trotz told the Capitals website. "And so if I'm going to maximize his talent, I need to get him on the left side. Now if he doesn't want to adjust defensively playing the left side, then we'll talk about maybe moving him back to the right.

"The stuff that he does on the left side, there's no coach on the planet who can teach [it]. If he's willing to learn, I can teach him the other stuff."

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."

That's the biggest goal I've ever scored. It's a great feeling any time you do that, especially at home. We're one game away from a Stanley Cup berth. It was a huge goal and it felt unbelievable.
