Defenseman Slater Koekkoek was soaking up some of the spotlight this week at Tampa Bay Lightning prospect camp. That says a lot, considering some of the talent in attendance and the adversity Koekkoek has encountered since being taken with the 10th pick in the 2012 NHL Draft.

The camp roster included forward Jonathan Drouin, the third player taken in the 2013 draft, who finished as the leading scorer during the 2014 Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoffs. Also on hand was Andrei Vasilevskiy, one of the world's top goaltending prospects, who was taken nine picks after Koekkoek in 2012.


Oilers coach Eakins eager to see improved defense

Thursday, 07.03.2014 / 11:00 PM / NHL Insider

The Edmonton Oilers will have a lot of new pieces when they head to training camp in September. Coach Dallas Eakins is excited about the newcomers and what they can bring to a franchise that's trying to avoid a ninth straight season without making the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"We think it has been a good few days getting the free agents in the boat. It was important," Eakins told the Oilers website Thursday, the first day of orientation camp. "We've added size, we've added depth, and we've added some people who can make plays. Those are all things that we need in our lineup, especially in our division."

Through trades and free-agent signings, the Oilers brought in defensemen Mark Fayne and Nikita Nikitin, and forwards Teddy Purcell and Benoit Pouliot. They also added a big, talented center by taking Leon Draisaitl with the third pick in the 2014 NHL Draft.


Canucks sign Vrbata to play with Sedin twins

VANCOUVER -- Radim Vrbata wasn't the Vancouver Canucks' first choice to cure their scoring woes in free agency. That's OK; the feeling was mutual.

After failing to lure Jarome Iginla, who instead went to the Colorado Avalanche on the opening day of NHL free agency Tuesday, the Canucks signed free-agent forward Vrbata to two-year, $10 million contract Wednesday night.

Before agreeing, Vrbata checked back in with the Arizona Coyotes, who were willing to offer a longer contract but not the no-trade clause he wanted. He also turned down a four-year offer from another team.

"I am not going to lie, it wasn't easy," Vrbata said Thursday of leaving Arizona. "We have been there six years and always really liked it. I liked it from a hockey standpoint and we liked it off the ice, so it was a tough decision."

The Canucks made the choice easier by telling Vrbata he will get a chance to play with Daniel Sedin and Henrik Sedin on the top line and on a first power-play unit that struggled last season.

Wednesday, 07.02.2014 / 10:10 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
