At the Rink: Blue Jackets at Flames

CALGARY -- It's good news, bad news for the Columbus Blue Jackets as they face the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday.

The Blue Jackets activated forwards Jeremy Morin, who has missed the past 25 games, and Boone Jenner, who has missed 40 games, from injured reserve Friday, but center Alexander Wennberg is likely to miss the game against the Flames after a cut on his hand that required stitches to close became infected.

Wennberg, the Blue Jackets first pick (No. 14) in the 2013 NHL Draft, is just the latest injury in a difficult season for Columbus. According to the Blue Jackets, they've lost a franchise record 457 man games due to injury, surpassing the previous high of 411 set in 2011-12. Columbus is on pace to reach 528.

Every Day is World Water Day at the NHL

On this World Water Day we ask our fans to join us in conserving water.

Water flows as a life source for hockey, starting with the frozen ponds and lakes where players learn the game, to the ice making and resurfacing processes of arenas and local community rinks. Hockey as we know it wouldn’t exist without the freshwater resources where players learn the game. Life as we know it wouldn’t exist without the freshwater that serves as our drinking water, provides habitat for fish and wildlife and is crucial for agriculture and economic development.

Read on to find out how we're addressing our water footprint.

At the Rink: Avalanche at Ducks

ANAHEIM -- Defenseman Sami Vatanen likely will return to the lineup and goalie Frederik Andersen will start for the Anaheim Ducks when they play the Colorado Avalanche on Friday at Honda Center.

Vatanen has missed 15 games because of a lower-body injury sustained Feb. 15 when his legs hit the boards awkwardly.

"It's been a long four weeks for me sitting there and eating popcorn [for the games]," Vatanen said. "It's a fun time to back in. I think this week I've been feeling really good and I've been ready to play and I'm just waiting my turn to get back in the lineup."

BU's Eichel named Hockey East Player of the Year

Boston University freshman Jack Eichel, a projected top-two pick in the 2015 NHL Draft, was named Hockey East Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year during the league's awards banquet at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge, Mass., on Thursday.

The 18-year-old right-shot center also earned the only unanimous first-team Hockey East All-Star selection.

Eichel, who was named one of 10 finalists for the Hobey Baker Award on Thursday, is the third player from Hockey East to win both awards in the same since University of Maine forward Paul Kariya in 1993 and Boston College defenseman Brian Leetch in 1987. Kariya was chosen No. 4 in the 1993 draft by the Anaheim Ducks, and Leetch was selected No. 9 in the 1986 draft by the New York Rangers.

Friday Four: 'Hamburglar' has Senators in playoff hunt

Each Friday throughout the regular season, Kevin Weekes will be bringing you his Friday Four in his Weekes on the Web blog. He will be blogging about four players, teams, plays, trends or really four of whatever in the NHL that have caught his eye.

That guy in Ottawa, you know who I mean, plus the banged-up Jets, the newly dynamic Bruins and a goalie who simply needs more pub and more credit in New Jersey. It's all in my Friday Four this week.

COL @ ARI - 11:53 of the Third Period

At 12:10 of the third period in the Colorado Avalanche/Arizona Coyotes game, the Situation Room initiated a video review to further examine Oliver Ekman-Larsson's shot attempt at 11:53. Video review determined that the puck crossed the Colorado goal line in a legal fashion. According to Rule 38.6 "In the event that a video replay shows a goal was scored prior to the play being stopped, the Video Goal Judge will inform the Game Timekeeper and Official Scorer of the time and the amount of playing time left to be reset on the game clock and penalty time clocks (if applicable)." Therefore the clock is reset to show 8:07 (11:53 elapsed time) and good goal Arizona.
