Kings' Mitchell feels lucky to get to play outdoors

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Willie Mitchell's knee injury was so mystifying that he didn't know if he'd ever play again, so an event like the one he'll take part in Saturday night at Dodger Stadium couldn't even be called a goal, a dream, or really anything at all for the Los Angeles Kings defenseman.

"I was out 17-18 months and I had no idea, to be honest with you," Mitchell told NHL.com.

Mason transforms Flyers on zombie mask

Friday, 01.24.2014 / 2:44 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

VOORHEES, N.J. -- Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux has been asked a lot of things in his hockey career.

"Can I paint you in zombie form on my goalie mask?" had to be a new one.

Giroux obviously said yes, as did teammates Scott Hartnell, Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek. All have been transformed into zombies for Steve Mason's new goalie mask, which he unveiled for teammates and fans Friday during practice.

The new mask follows Mason's initial helmet this season, which featured zombie versions of famous American historical figures, including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Betsy Ross.

This time Mason went a bit more contemporary.

First outdoor game marks unique moment for Brodeur

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- The fond memories of shinny hockey outdoors with dad are still fresh in the mind of New Jersey Devils draft pick Anthony Brodeur.

"A few years ago, we were up in Canada for Christmas and I remember playing hockey on the lake with him a lot," Brodeur told NHL.com. "There were a lot of other family members there as well. It was a great time."

Brodeur did note that neither he nor dad, Martin Brodeur, served as goalie that day while at the family cottage in Quebec.

Super 16: Devils' Jagr joins exclusive club

Friday, 01.24.2014 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

This season has been full of milestones for Jaromir Jagr as he climbs the NHL's all-time leaderboard in goals and points.

He added another slightly more obscure one Tuesday when his goal for the New Jersey Devils in a 7-1 rout of the St. Louis Blues gave him 40 points this season. Jagr became the 15th member of the NHL's "40/40 club," reaching 40 points in his age-40 season or later.

It is a feat that has happened 26 times in League history. Gordie Howe did it four times, while Igor Larionov, Mark Messier and Mark Recchi reached 40 after 40 three times each. The 41-year-old Jagr was close last season with 35 points in 45 games. His birthday is Feb. 15, so he missed the Feb. 1 cutoff for this exercise two seasons ago when he had 54 points.

Lovejoy: Game will showcase hockey in SoCal

Ben Lovejoy - Special to NHL.com

Anaheim Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy can barely contain his enthusiasm for the upcoming 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the Ducks and the Los Angeles Kings (Saturday, 9:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC) at Dodger Stadium. In his first edition of the player blog he is doing for NHL.com for the next three days, Lovejoy talks about the history of Dodger Stadium, the uniqueness of playing hockey in Southern California, the rivalry that will be on display Saturday night for the rest of the hockey world to see and a special skate he has planned during Friday’s family skate after the Ducks practice.

His first blog entry comes after the Ducks' 2-1 victory against the Kings at Honda Center on Thursday:

ANAHEIM -- This is so exciting. This is a game where, when it was announced this summer, everyone in the room circled their calendars. We can't wait to be a part of the first outdoor game in a warm-weather climate. We've all watched them on TV or been a part of them in the past, but they have all been in big-market, northern cities. This will be the crown jewel for hockey in Southern California, and everybody is so excited to be a part of it.

I think the three California teams have made a statement about California hockey all year. I think that all three are locations where players want to play. Guys want to come to Anaheim, guys want to come to L.A., they want to live in San Jose. Guys will play hard because they want to stay there. These are special places to play. The fans are into it. You live in a great part of the world. I think we are going to show the rest of North America that hockey is huge in Southern California, hockey is special here and what better place to showcase the two Southern California teams than in Dodger Stadium.

The game at Dodger Stadium on Saturday will be fun, but we've got to get a win. We played another tight game Thursday at Honda Center, but couldn't come away with what we needed.

Friday, 01.24.2014 / 1:42 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

The New Jersey Devils are eager to take the ice at Yankee Stadium for their Coors Light NHL Stadium Series matchup against the New York Rangers on Sunday afternoon. But there's the little matter of a game against the Washington Capitals at Prudential Center to take care of first.

New Jersey is sixth in the Metropolitan Division but trails the second-place Rangers by only four points and can catch their biggest rival by beating the Capitals and winning in regulation Sunday. The Capitals have fallen to seventh in the division with 52 points and have dropped six games in a row, the past four in regulation.

Here's a look at all of the action Friday:
