Fantasy Spin: Denmark's talent suddenly on the map

It's no surprise when countries like Canada, the United States, Russia, Sweden, Finland, the Czech Republic and Slovakia produce NHL players that pay dividends in fantasy hockey leagues.

But the first month of the 2013-14 season has seen Denmark emerge as a new source of fantasy assets.

Coming into this season, no goalie from Denmark had ever played in an NHL game. The country's career points leader is New York Islanders center Frans Nielsen, who is only 29 years old.

Mikael Backlund will get back into action for the Flames, and Johan Franzen will suit up for the Red Wings. Each player missed the most-recent game for their respective teams, albeit for very different reasons.

Vanek growing comfortable with Islanders

OTTAWA -- With Thomas Vanek's first game with the New York Islanders under his belt, he is feeling more and more at home with his new team.

Vanek will line up with John Tavares and Kyle Okposo again Friday against the Ottawa Senators at Canadian Tire Centre.

Acquired in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday, Vanek did not have a point in a 3-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Tuesday in his Islanders debut.

"I've got a wife and three kids, so anytime you throw that in the equation it makes it a little bit harder, but I think this team is really close and they've taken me in and they're making each day more and more comfortable for me," said Vanek, who will play his 600th regular-season game Friday.

Wild get four back from injury to face Canadiens

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Minnesota Wild will get back four players for their game Friday against the Montreal Canadiens at Xcel Energy Center.

Perhaps the most notable is forward Charlie Coyle, who sustained a knee injury Oct. 5 and has missed 11 games. Coyle was the Wild's second-line center when he went down but returns Friday as the team's top centerman, splitting up Mikko Koivu and Zach Parise for the first time since Parise signed with the Wild two summers ago.

"It's really nice just to be back with the guys again, able to go on road trips and not being left behind here and working out by myself," Coyle said. "I don't really care what line I'm on, I'm just happy to be back on the ice helping our team win."

Blue Jackets, Penguins open home-and-home set

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins and Columbus Blue Jackets will meet for the first of two games in two nights between the new division rivals on Friday at Consol Energy Center.

The Blue Jackets are fourth in the Metropolitan Division with 10 points, eight behind the first-place Penguins. Columbus will have a chance to cut into that lead during the home-and-home set.

Forward Brandon Dubinsky said the Blue Jackets will need to come out strong Friday to set themselves up for the rematch Saturday in Columbus.

"You have to make it a hard game," Dubinsky said. "You have to come out, be ready to compete right from the get-go. We know these guys come hard at home. They play with speed. They generate a lot of speed through the neutral zone and they got some top-end guys.

"We have to find a way to stay disciplined, stay out of the box and be ready to play a physical and hard game."

Downie returns to Flyers against Washington

Philadelphia Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren is hoping forward Steve Downie will do for captain Claude Giroux what he was able to do for Matt Duchene of the Colorado Avalanche.

Specifically, provide him with some space and time to rekindle a little offensive magic.

Downie will return to the place where it all began for him Friday in Philadelphia when the Flyers host the Washington Capitals at Wells Fargo Center (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US). Philadelphia reacquired Downie, 26, in a trade with the Avalanche on Thursday in exchange for forward Maxime Talbot.

In 11 games with the Avalanche, Downie saw plenty of time on the top line with Duchene, who currently leads the team in goals (nine), power-play goals (three) and points (13). Giroux has no goals and six assists in 11 games this season, and is a minus-7, tied for the worst mark on the team.

Malhotra excited to be back in NHL

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Veteran forward Manny Malhotra, signed by the Carolina Hurricanes to a one-year, two-way contract Thursday, will be in the lineup Friday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Hurricanes are dealing with injuries and a three-game losing streak. Coach Kirk Muller felt the time was right to introduce a veteran presence to the team.

"You can never have enough experience, [plus] the value of faceoffs and killing some penalties," Muller said. "Being just a mentor to some guys in our lineup. I think his experience on and off the ice will be huge for our group."

Malhotra lost much of the vision in his left eye when he was injured during a game in March 2011. He has played a limited role since then, but said he has full clearance by doctors to return to play.

"My vision is not what it was; it never will be, but it's fine," he said. "I'm accustomed to what I do have."

He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.
