Demko looking forward to college, prospects game

Thatcher Demko is a goaltender playing his freshman season with Boston College. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder played his minor hockey in southern California before joining the U.S. National Team Development Program last season. He's excelled for the United States at the under-18 level and could earn a spot on the U.S. team for the 2014 World Junior Championship. Demko has offered to maintain a monthly blog for NHL.com that will chronicle his season leading up to the 2014 NHL Draft.

Hi everyone. I'm Thatcher Demko. I am currently a goaltender for the Boston College Eagles in the Hockey East conference.

I was born in Sam Diego in December 1995. Growing up playing in San Diego was definitely a different experience than most hockey players have. In my city of nearly 1.5 million people there were four ice sheets, two in one building, so finding ice wasn't always the easiest thing to do so I always had to do so unordinary things to train.

Once I hit 15, I moved to Omaha to play for the Omaha Lancers in the United States Hockey League. After one season with that incredible organization, I moved again, to Ann Arbor, Mich., and played one season with the U.S. National Team Development Program U-18 team. I then accelerated my high school studies and got into Boston College a year early.

Dallas Stars coach Lindy Ruff revealed after Tuesday's team practice that veteran defenseman Trevor Daley remains out with an upper-body injury and is not likely to be in the team's lineup for their opening-night contest Oct. 3 against the Florida Panthers.

Devils get Jagr back at practice

New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr returned to practice Tuesday for the first time since the opening of training camp on Sept. 12 after nursing a lower-body injury.

"Back and hip muscles, they're all connected," Jagr said. "I'm glad I didn't get injured again. I guess that's the first step. I knew it wasn't good when it happened to me in the first practice. It probably had something to do with the plane ride. Traveling 15 hours is not easy."
