Sabres GM feels Panthers will take Ekblad at No. 1

Buffalo Sabres general manager Tim Murray acknowledged Thursday that he expects Ontario Hockey League defenseman Aaron Ekblad of the Barrie Colts to be the first player chosen at the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

The Florida Panthers currently have the No. 1 pick in the draft, and the Sabres hold the No. 2 selection.

"I believe that Ekblad is going to go one and then we pick who we have left; the next guy on our list," Murray said at his pre-draft press conference. "If he doesn’t go one, I'd be surprised, I guess, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it."

Swedish prospects Kempe, Englund earning praise

Left wing Adrian Kempe and defenseman Andreas Englund are two intriguing blue-chip prospects from Sweden who could be playing in the NHL sooner rather than later with the proper development.

Born on Sept. 13, 1996, Kempe is not only the youngest European skater among the top 30 on NHL Central Scouting's final rankings of international skaters, but also the youngest among the top 30 skaters on the North American list.

The 6-foot-1, 187-pound left-handed shooter is No. 6 on Central Scouting's final ranking of the top international skaters eligible for the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on June 27-28.

Kempe, a power forward type, is considered a first-round pick by many NHL scouts. Some have compared him to Loui Eriksson of the Boston Bruins as an exceptional skater with a two-way approach to the game.

"He's a big, strong, bullish forward who can play center or wing," NHL Director of European Scouting Goran Stubb said. "He likes to drive hard for the net, using his strength and skating to his advantage. He plays the body and is aggressive when forechecking. He has a good defensive game for a player with his offensive skills; mobile, solid and strong."

Kings' celebration continues in nearby beach towns

Five days after the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons, they continued celebrating Wednesday with their fans in beach towns surrounding the city.

Thousands gathered in the streets of Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach to cheer on the Kings, who defeated the New York Rangers in five games in the Stanley Cup Final, which culminated with Alec Martinez's double-overtime goal Friday at Staples Center.

"It was really important for us to bring the Stanley Cup down here to the South Bay because we feel like we're part of the community," forward Justin Williams told the Los Angeles Daily News. "This certainly makes us feel welcome."

Lightning coach Cooper eager to take next step

Tampa Bay Lightning coach and Jack Adams Award finalist Jon Cooper joined NHL Live to look back at the 2013-14 season and what the future holds for his team.

Cooper, Mike Babcock of the Detroit Red Wings and Patrick Roy of the Colorado Avalanche are the three finalists for the Adams Award, presented to the coach who has "contributed the most to his team's success." The winner will be announced June 24 during the 2014 NHL Awards from Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas. The 2014 NHL Awards will be broadcast by NBCSN in the United States and CBC in Canada.

Cooper took over the Lightning team late in the 2012-13 season, when they finished 28th in the League standings. In his first full season, he guided the Lighting to a 46-27-9 record (101 points) and second-place finish before they were swept by the Montreal Canadiens in the Eastern Conference First Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Kings visit Dodger Stadium with Stanley Cup

Several Los Angeles Kings visited Dodger Stadium with the Stanley Cup on Tuesday when the Dodgers hosted the Colorado Rockies.

The Kings won the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons Friday with a 3-2 double-overtime victory in Game 5 of the Final against the New York Rangers.

Defensemen Drew Doughty and Willie Mitchell, and forwards Jeff Carter, Jarret Stoll and Justin Williams, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy as most valuable player of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, were among the Kings to take the Cup to Dodger Stadium.

The Kings took batting practice during their visit.

"These guys have got pretty good strokes, actually," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly told cbsla.com. "And they're actually really athletic, especially with the ball down. I guess it's a little bit like that slap shot, right?"

Fantasy Spin: Trending up, down after 2014 playoffs

There were elite-level players (Anze Kopitar, Drew Doughty, Henrik Lundqvist, Patrick Kane, P.K. Subban, etc.) who fueled deep playoff runs for their respective teams, as well as breakout stars from the regular season (Nathan MacKinnon, Jamie Benn, Ryan McDonagh, Ryan Johansen, Matt Niskanen, etc.) who carried over their strong play to the big stage.

But the players who will stick in the minds of fantasy owners all summer long are the playoff surprises and disappointments. Here are some players who are trending in fantasy, for better or worse, heading into the offseason as a result of their postseason performances.
