Capitals owner says new regime 'in total sync'

Saturday, 07.12.2014 / 3:45 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. – In entering the first phase of what was termed an organizational refresh earlier this offseason, it was imperative to Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis that all facets of management were aligned.

"You need to be totally in sync [with new coach Barry Trotz]," Leonsis recalled telling general manager Brian MacLellan upon promoting him in May. "With the players that we sign, the players that we draft, you have to be in total sync."

Two months into the Capitals' new regime, Leonsis has seen his directives carried out to his satisfaction.

"So far, so good on that," he said Saturday. "I think that's a good move in a positive direction to have the organization all singing from the same songbook."

Fabbri makes strong first impression on Blues

Saturday, 07.12.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- Tim Taylor has gotten to know St. Louis Blues 2014 first-round pick Robert Fabbri quite extensively this week.

The Blues director of player development worked with some of their top prospects during development camp at the Ice Zone, inside St. Louis Outlet Mall.

After watching Fabbri, Taylor understood why the Blues made the center from the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League the 21st pick last month.

"There's a reason why we picked him first," Taylor said of Fabbri, who had 45 goals and 87 points in 58 regular-season games then was named MVP of the OHL playoffs after he had 13 goals and 28 points in 16 games. He capped his season with two goals and four assists in four games while helping the Storm reach the Memorial Cup championship game.

Turris ready for role as Senators' top center

Friday, 07.11.2014 / 10:49 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Kyle Turris has experience taking over for Jason Spezza as the Ottawa Senators' No. 1 center and he is confident he can do it again.

Turris will ascend the depth chart this season after Spezza was traded to the Dallas Stars on July 1. Two seasons ago, Spezza was sidelined for almost all of the shortened schedule after back surgery.

"I definitely think I've learned a lot over the past two years from those experiences, from being put into that role when [Spezza] was hurt, and seeing how hard the matchup is," Turris told the Ottawa Sun on Friday. "I just tried to take that mentality and put it into the role I had this past year. … This upcoming year, if I'm put into that role again, I think the experience I have now will work in my favor, to know what to expect and how better to prepare for it."

It was March 10 when Dallas Stars forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the bench during the first period of a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets at American Airlines Center and was rushed to a hospital for treatment of what doctors described as a cardiac event.

Thursday, four months after the incident, Peverley detailed how he is working toward what he hopes will be a return to the ice.

Canadiens prospect Fucale learning from adversity

Friday, 07.11.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- A little over a year ago Zachary Fucale was living a dream.

Coming off a Memorial Cup championship with the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Fucale was the first goaltender selected at the 2013 NHL Draft. And the team doing the selecting was his hometown Montreal Canadiens.

Life could not have been much better.

What has transpired since the draft, however, could be described as a nightmare.

And Fucale is ready to wake up.
