The NHL will take center stage in this week's edition of Sports Illustrated.

Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane will be on the national cover of the magazine that hits newsstands Wednesday. Pittsburgh Penguins forward Sidney Crosby will be on a regional cover.

The issue will feature a 20-page preview of the 2013-14 season, including scouting reports, conference rankings and top storylines entering the season.

The magazine predicts Kane and the Blackhawks will defeat the Crosby and the Penguins to win a second straight Stanley Cup.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
