Daniel Sedin excited for third All-Star appearance

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 2:00 PM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

The 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game in Nashville on Jan. 31 is less than two weeks away. In the lead-up to All-Star Weekend at Bridgestone Arena, sat down with a host of this season's participants to talk about playing in the game. In this edition, Daniel Sedin discusses representing the Vancouver Canucks for the third time in the All-Star Game.

1. What does being an All-Star mean to you?

"It means a lot, for sure. To be picked among all the other players who get to go is an honor and this will be my third one so it'll be a lot of fun."

2. What is your favorite memory from previous All-Star Games?

"I think it was the chance to bring my family when I played in the game in Ottawa (in 2012). That was really neat. Me and my brother (Henrik Sedin) got a chance to play with Daniel Alfredsson in the game. That was a lot of fun because [Alfredsson] was a guy you always looked up to. Being a captain in Ottawa for such a long time and being such a successful player there, it meant a lot to me and Henrik to be playing with him in his home rink."

Fantasy forwards: Second line elevating Capitals

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Pete Jensen - Fantasy Insider

Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom of the Washington Capitals have been elite-level fantasy staples throughout the past decade. Suddenly, they have company in their own town.

Ovechkin is second in the NHL in goals (27) and leads the League in shots on goal (222), while Backstrom is one of six players with a point per game or better this season (others: Patrick Kane, Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, Erik Karlsson, Johnny Gaudreau). No one should be surprised to see Ovechkin and Backstrom where they are in the fantasy rankings, but rarely have the Capitals had a second line as powerful as their current trio of Evgeny Kuznetsov, Justin Williams and Andre Burakovsky.

John Scott will captain Pacific Division All-Stars

NEW YORK – John Scott will captain the Pacific Division team at the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend in Nashville, the National Hockey League announced today.

Scott, elected to the Pacific Division captaincy in fan voting while a member of the Arizona Coyotes, was traded Friday to the Montreal Canadiens of the Atlantic Division. The resultant change in division, and Scott’s subsequent assignment to the American Hockey League, created a unique circumstance that required review – the result of which was a determination to maintain the status quo for the All-Star weekend in order to preserve all parties' pre-existing expectations, including Scott’s desire to participate.

Reverent Daniel Sedin on cusp of passing Naslund

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 11:00 AM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Daniel Sedin doesn't consider himself as good a goal-scorer as fellow Swede Markus Naslund but is humbled to be mentioned with him as one of the best in Vancouver Canucks history.

Sedin needs one goal to reach 347 and pass Naslund to become Vancouver's all-time leading scorer.

Naslund scored his 346 goals in 884 games for Vancouver over 11-plus seasons. Sedin will play his 1,108th game at the New York Rangers on Tuesday.

"The night I matched him (with two goals in a 3-2 overtime win against the Florida Panthers on Jan. 11), I said he will always be the best goal-scorer, in my mind," said Sedin, who the Canucks selected with the second pick in the 1999 NHL Draft. "He did it in less games and had a better shot."

Heading the list of exceptional talent playing in Europe this season is center Auston Matthews of Zurich in National League A, the top professional league in Switzerland. Matthews, 18, is No. 1 on NHL Central Scouting's midterm list of international skaters, released Tuesday.

Matthews, a native of Scottsdale, Ariz., opted to play this season for Zurich, where not only is he playing against older, more physically developed competition, he's coached by former NHL coach Marc Crawford.

Five Questions: Predators' Poile talks ASG, Johansen

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Nashville Predators general manager David Poile:

Eighteen-and-a-half years in the town aptly known as "Music City USA" has turned Nashville Predators general manager David Poile into a country music fan.

"I have become one, absolutely," Poile said. "The fact that we've had so many stars actually come to our games, sing at our games between periods, do the national anthem, it's part of our fabric for sure."

Poile lists Vince Gill and Amy Grant as his favorites.

"For me, those are two of the best voices ever," he said.

Gill's inclusion in the upcoming NHL All-Star Weekend festivities in Nashville is yet another reason, among a plethora of them, that Poile is so excited to show his adopted city off to the hockey world.

AHL Notebook: Marlies' Brennan is first-half MVP

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 3:00 AM / AHL Update

Patrick Williams - Correspondent

The American Hockey League schedule has reached the halfway point.

Here is a look at some potential award-winners as the AHL season moves into the second half:

Les Cunningham Award (most valuable player)

The Toronto Marlies sit atop the AHL standings with 64 points in 41 games, seven points ahead of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Toronto leads the AHL in goals per game (3.85) and are fifth in goals-against per game (2.44). Defenseman TJ Brennan, a puck-mover who can anchor the power play, has played a major role. Brennan has stood out on Toronto's blue line, which also features captain Andrew Campbell and prospect Stuart Percy. Brennan is tied for the AHL scoring lead with 38 points (15 goals, 23 assists) in 41 games.

Analysis: Canadiens' problems bigger than no Price

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

Everything was supposed to be all right.

The Montreal Canadiens got forward Brendan Gallagher back from an injury and trounced their biggest rivals on the NHL's biggest regular-season stage.

It was, if you were to believe the words being spoken in the Canadiens dressing room after their 5-1 victory against the Boston Bruins in the Bridgestone 2016 NHL Winter Classic on Jan. 1, a potential turning point to what had been the very epitome of an up-and-down season.

Except with the Bruins coming to town to face the Canadiens on Tuesday at Bell Centre in a Winter Classic rematch (7:30 p.m. ET; NESN, RDS, SNE), everything is not all right in Montreal.
