WATCH: Hall of Fame inductees receive rings

This year's class of inductees into the Hockey Hall of Fame -- Chris Chelios, Scott Niedermayer, Brendan Shanahan, Geraldine Heaney and Fred Shero -- were presented with their rings Friday in Toronto.

During the presentation, each recalled where they were when they found out they would be honored.

"My 10-year-old son Jack was just coming home about 10 minutes later, from camp, and he was the first person that I told," Shanahan said. "And I choked up as I was getting the words out, that 'Daddy's in the Hall of Fame.'"

The induction ceremony will be held Monday.

Could Chelios return to play with sons?

Chris Chelios retired from the NHL in 2010, but could he be considering a comeback?

Chelios, 51, told reporters in Toronto that he would consider playing in Europe if his sons play hockey overseas.

His sons Dean, 24, and Jake, 22, play for the hockey team at Michigan State University.

"My guys are seniors in college now, and if for some crazy [reason] they don't make it [to the NHL], which, realistically there's just not enough jobs, I wouldn't hesitate," Chelios said. "I'm staying in shape to go to Europe, pick a good country and take my whole family over there and go play with them there. Like Switzerland. I've been there. Who knows? We've done crazier things in our family."

Predators' Hutton goes for third win against Jets

WINNIPEG -- The Nashville Predators' seven-game road trip continues Friday against an opponent they have controlled so far this season without needing to call on goaltender Pekka Rinne.

The Predators (8-5-2) have taken each of their meetings with the Winnipeg Jets in front of goaltender Carter Hutton. Nashville coach Barry Trotz gave Rinne a night off when the teams met in Winnipeg on Oct. 20, and Hutton responded with 38 saves in a 3-1 win. Four nights later in Nashville, Hutton started again after a hip infection sidelined Rinne and delivered a 34-save performance in helping Nashville take a 3-2 overtime decision.

Hutton will start again for Nashville against the Jets (6-9-2) on Friday. The Predators arrived in Winnipeg fresh off a 6-4 road win against the Colorado Avalanche on Wednesday, as they continue a coast-to-coast, franchise-record-tying seven-game road trip that will see them face the New Jersey Devils on Sunday.

"It's been a little different," Hutton said of his time as Nashville's No. 1 goaltender. "Obviously Pekka going down is a huge loss to us. He's a world-class goalie and a great guy, so it's tough. You don't expect that. You don't wish that on any [player]. But opportunities come your way … and so far it has been a fun ride."

Roy, Hartley reunite as Avalanche host Flames

DENVER -- Colorado Avalanche coach Patrick Roy is looking forward to seeing his Calgary Flames counterpart, Bob Hartley, when the teams meet Friday at Pepsi Center.

Roy was tending goal when Hartley coached the Avalanche to a Stanley Cup championship in 2001 and the two men have maintained a close relationship.

"I have a lot of respect for Bob," Roy said Friday. "Over the past years he always said, 'Hey, call me. If you need something, I'll be there for you.' He's always been there for me. He called me when I got the [Avalanche coaching position], he called me in the summer, he called me before the start of the season. In training camp he called me. We're talking a lot."

Ducks to go with Andersen in goal

ANAHEIM -- Depth at goalie for the Anaheim Ducks has worked out so well that backup Frederik Andersen is 4-0-0 without having started a game at home.

Logic would dictate that coach Bruce Boudreau would go back to Jonas Hiller after a win, but Andersen will get his first home start Friday against the Buffalo Sabres. Andersen was recalled from the American Hockey League when Viktor Fasth was injured, and his adjustment to the NHL has been smooth enough that Boudreau is comfortable going back to him.

"We play Vancouver on Sunday, which I want [Hiller] to play, so it seemed like a good spot for a goalie that's undeterred," Boudreau said. "What I mean by that is that there's no letdown I think in his mind because he's still trying to impress to be here."

Nylander's goal lifts Sweden past U.S. at Four Nations

William Nylander, a top prospect for the 2014 NHL Draft, scored the game-winning goal at 11:49 of the third period to give Sweden a 3-2 win against the United States at the 2013 Under-18 Four Nations Tournament, being held in Turku, Finland.

With Sweden skating on a 5-on-3 power play, Nylander beat U.S. goalie Edwin Minney.

Nylander, who plays for Rogle in Sweden's second division, earned an "A" rating from NHL Central Scouting in its preliminary list of players to watch for the 2014 draft. He is the son of former NHL center Michael Nylander.

Nylander's goal came after Jack Eichel's second goal of the game tied things at 8:11 of the third. Eichel, who plays for the United States National Team Development Program's under-18 team, also had a power-play goal in the second period. He is eligible for the 2015 NHL Draft.

Fantasy Spin: Stars' Nichushkin picking up steam

Whether we're talking fantasy or reality, Dallas Stars rookie Valeri Nichushkin has a bright future ahead of him.

And glimpses of his promise are already evident this season.

The 18-year-old Russian has put together a three-game point streak after a slow start to the season (two points in his first 12 games). His patience in the offensive zone in overtime against the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday allowed him to feed Rich Peverley for the game-winning goal.

Quote of the Day

It's a big milestone for me and I'm happy to help my team with lots of good teammates. It's fun.
