U.S. players try to make impression prior to roster trim

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Monday marks the final chance for some of the 42 United States players in camp to make an impression on the USA Hockey coaching and management staff. After split-squad games against Sweden and Finland, the roster will be trimmed. How many players are sent home has yet to be determined.

"We've discussed it," United States coach Mark Osiecki told NHL.com before camp started. "There are going to be some trim-down dates. We're not firm on specific dates or specific numbers. It's an open door; see how it goes and we'll discuss it once we get into the camp."

The USA Blue team will play Sweden at 1 p.m., followed by USA White taking on Finland at 4 p.m. In games Sunday, USA Blue beat Finland 2-1 and USA White lost to Sweden 4-3.

Veteran coach Sullivan enjoying work with prospects

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Mike Sullivan has spent his entire 12-year coaching career working with professionals, including last season as an assistant coach with the Vancouver Canucks.

But this week he's spending time as a guest coach for USA Hockey at its National Junior Evaluation Camp.

"It's exciting," Sullivan told NHL.com. "I love the opportunity to work with the younger kids and get to know them. They are the U.S.'s brightest prospects. To have the opportunity to get on the ice with them and spend three or four days with them is exciting for me. It's a fun three or four days on a lot of fronts. It's great to be able to get to know some of the other coaches from the U.S. and share experiences. I look at it as a great learning opportunity."

Blue Jackets' Milano sticking with Boston College

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Columbus Blue Jackets prospect Sonny Milano confirmed Monday he will attend Boston College in the fall.

Milano's Canadian Hockey League rights are owned by the Plymouth Whalers of the Ontario Hockey League, and there has been speculation he would pass on college hockey. However, Milano, the 16th pick of the 2014 NHL Draft, said his commitment was set.

"A lot of people talk, I guess," Milano said. "I was on campus two weeks ago for orientation. I keep in touch with all the [hockey] staff."

Kings' Stoll helps raise money for Saskatoon hospital

Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan has benefitted greatly over the years thanks to the generosity of Los Angeles Kings forward Jarret Stoll. On top of that, it got a visit from the Stanley Cup on Sunday.

Stoll paid a visit to the hospital during his day with the Cup, spending time with children and their families as part of a fundraiser that proved quite successful.

In a picture tweeted by the Kings, the 32-year-old is seen posing with a young boy and Lord Stanley's trophy. On a stand nearby is a check for $1 million from the Jarret Stoll Patient Comfort Fund Endowment for Children. Stoll has been raising money through his foundation and an annual charity golf tournament for the past nine years.

Kings forward Richards brings Cup back to Kenora

Los Angeles Kings forward Mike Richards got to enjoy his second day with the Stanley Cup in the past three years Friday. As he did in 2012, he brought the most iconic trophy in sports to Kenora, Ontario for a quiet day on the lake.

Located about 124 miles east of Winnipeg in northwestern Ontario, Kenora saw hundreds of its citizens come out to again get up close with the Stanley Cup. Fans from around the region lined the streets as Richards led a modest parade through town.

"He's an amazing hockey player, he's from Kenora and he wins the Stanley Cup lots," young fan Mason Prefontaine told the Kenora Daily Miner and News.

Standing on the bed of a white pickup truck, Richards was driven alongside the Cup and the Clarence S. Campbell Bowl, which the Kings received after defeating the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final.

Kings scout McEwen brings Cup to hometown

When the Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup for the first time in 2012, Brent McEwen, the team's amateur scout for Western Canada, brought the trophy to Saskatoon, the largest city in Saskatchewan. To celebrate the Kings' victory this June, McEwen brought the Cup to a much quainter location.

Wednesday, he hosted the Cup in Whitewood, Saskatchewan, his rural hometown of fewer than 1,000 people located in the southeastern region of the province. It was a far cry from Saskatoon, where McEwen worked for a decade at the University of Saskatchewan before becoming general manager of the Saskatoon Blades in the Western Hockey League.

"When I had it in Saskatoon, I had it at the university where I worked for a number of years. I thought if we ever won it again, I would really like to bring it back here when I grew up and my family still lives," McEwen told NHL.com. "It's really a great opportunity for people to get close to the Cup. That's what it's all about. Sharing it with people I grew up with in an area I grew up in. It's great."

Kings scout Laird takes Cup home to Regina

Even though he is a professional scout for the Los Angeles Kings, Rob Laird spent his day with the Stanley Cup in a Western Hockey League town.

The Regina, Saskatchewan native took the Cup home Tuesday with the Regina Pats of the WHL playing a prominent role.

"It was natural for me to bring it to Regina this time," Laird told "The Morning Edition -- Saskatchewan" on CBC. "I have family here, and the Regina Pats have been gracious enough to host this event at the Wascana Country Club today."
