Stars' Klingberg playing at level that belies his age

Tuesday, 02.10.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Steve Hunt - NHL.com Correspondent

FRISCO, Texas -- John Klingberg is not your average rookie.

Through 39 games, the Dallas Stars defenseman has 10 goals and 18 assists. He has points in three straight games; included in that run is two assists in a 3-2 loss at the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday, already his eighth multipoint game in the NHL.

A fifth-round pick (No. 131) in the 2010 NHL Draft, Klingberg, 22, who also has a plus-10 rating, has showcased a dazzling array of offensive skills, among them a deadly shot from distance and the vision to deliver a pinpoint pass to set up a teammate at the perfect time.

He'll have a chance to add to those numbers when the Stars visit the Boston Bruins on Tuesday (7 p.m. ET, SN1).

Stadium Series rink construction set to get underway

Eric Gilmore - NHL.com Correspondent

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Dan Craig, the NHL's senior director of facilities operations, was able to take a deep breath Monday.

The NHL's state-of the-art mobile ice making and monitoring unit arrived on schedule at Levi's Stadium after a four-and-a-half day, 3,300-mile trip. Work can begin on time to build a rink for the 2015 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings on Feb. 21.

Instead of taking a more direct route to Santa Clara, the massive truck and 53-foot trailer traveled a southern path from Toronto to avoid the potential of getting stopped in mountain passes by snow storms. That added an extra 500 miles to the trip.

Blue Jackets' Hartnell to play in 1,000th career game

Monday, 02.09.2015 / 1:45 PM / NHL Insider

Craig Merz - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Monday will be a big deal for Columbus Blue Jackets forward Scott Hartnell, when he plays his 1,000th NHL regular-season game, against the Los Angeles Kings.

His parents, three siblings, a couple of nephews and a few friends from his hometown of Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, will be in attendance at Nationwide Arena for the feat.

"I'm happy my whole family will be coming down and be part of the special day," he told NHL.com last week. "It will be neat to have everyone share that milestone."

The Hartnell clan and others had dinner Sunday night in Columbus to celebrate his career.

"It was a really special evening," Hartnell said.

Being surrounded by those closest to him will be in contrast to how his NHL career began, Oct. 6, 2000, as an 18 year-old with the Nashville Predators.

EPIX crew works around clock for quick turnaround

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The bagels from breakfast are still sitting out while lunch is being ordered, plenty of them untouched as the hours bleed away with no one really noticing, or caring.

Producers in one of the four edit rooms are sifting through hours upon hours of footage while wearing winter coats because for some reason that no one can figure out, the heat in that particular edit room is not working properly this morning.

So what, they say. It doesn't stop them. They grind. They always grind.

Blues' top line is scoring, and shutting down scorers

Saturday, 02.07.2015 / 3:54 PM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- Once St. Louis Blues coach Ken Hitchcock went back to an old reliable forward line, it was a matter of time before it would begin to click on all cylinders.

The Blues' top line of Alexander Steen, David Backes and T.J. Oshie has put together quite the offensive run in recent weeks.

Since the Blues' post-Christmas schedule, Steen, Backes and Oshie have been on the scoresheet on a regular basis, and the Blues are accruing points at a rapid pace.

The Blues (34-14-4), who host the Chicago Blackhawks (32-18-2) Sunday (12:30 p.m. ET; NBC, SN360), have received 65 points (33 at even-strength with all three players on the ice) in 18 games from the line, an average of 3.6 per game.

Oilers doctor leading World's Longest Hockey Game

Saturday, 02.07.2015 / 3:45 PM / NHL Insider

Evan Sporer - NHL.com Staff Writer

The longest game in the history of the NHL lasted more than 176 minutes, and ended when the Detroit Red Wings' Mud Brunteau scored in the sixth overtime to beat the Montreal Canadiens in a Stanley Cup Playoff game March 24, 1936.

That's just a warm-up compared to what Dr. Brent Saik and his friends are doing.

On Feb. 6, Saik was one of 40 players to start the fifth World's Longest Hockey Game, an event that raises money for the Alberta Cancer Foundation. All proceeds go toward purchasing a piece of equipment for the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton.

Bruins' Chara used time off to get real estate license

Saturday, 02.07.2015 / 10:56 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Most NHL players will set their sole focus on getting healthy when they're out with an injury.

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara isn't like most NHL players, and not only because he's the tallest ever at 6-foot-9.

The Boston Globe reported Saturday that Chara, 37, has become licensed to sell real estate in Massachusetts.

Chara tore a ligament in his left knee Oct. 23; rather than lie around between daily rehab sessions each day, he enrolled in a real estate program. He passed his licensing exam during the NHL All-Star break last month and received his license that day.

"I like to keep as many doors open as possible for the future," Chara said, according to the Globe. "I just felt that while I was obviously not traveling as much with the team, I had so much time, especially early into my rehab, I decided to take some courses and I ended up going for the [exam]."

Analysis: Rangers would be wise to seek goalie help

Friday, 02.06.2015 / 5:15 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

The New York Rangers have two questions to answer in the wake of Henrik Lundqvist's vascular injury that will sideline the goalie for at least three weeks.

1) Do they think Cam Talbot can be a No. 1 goalie without a reliable backup until Lundqvist returns?

If Lundqvist is out for three weeks he'll miss at least 12 games, including the one he missed Wednesday. The Rangers have two sets of back-to-backs in that timeframe.

2) Do they need to acquire a veteran goalie to work in tandem with Talbot until Lundqvist is able to return, provided he is able to return this season?

The Rangers basically admitted Friday they're not 100 percent certain on the three-week timetable. The statement they released left open the possibility Lundqvist will be out longer.

Maple Leafs prospect Brown leads Marlies in scoring

Friday, 02.06.2015 / 12:42 PM / AHL Update

Kinsey Janke - Special to NHL.com

In another life, Connor Brown might have had a successful career in the financial world. Maybe on the front lines of Wall Street, or tucked away somewhere in a private firm. Math was kind of his thing in high school.

But hockey, like it does for many, had other ideas. Taken in the sixth round (No. 156) of the 2012 NHL Draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Etobicoke, Ontario, native got a chance to realize a dream every little kid playing hockey has: throwing on your hometown sweater.

"My whole family are pretty big Leafs fans so getting drafted here was just an added bonus to a special feeling on draft day," Brown said. "A couple buddies of mine that were there texted me first, and then I eventually saw my name on the ticker. We just watched it on TV."
