Crosby expects 'intense competition' vs. MacKinnon

Monday, 10.21.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

A rookie center from Nova Scotia has put the National Hockey League on notice in the first month of his career.

Sound familiar?

Eight years ago, an 18-year-old Sidney Crosby scored 10 points (two goals, eight assists) through the first eight games of his rookie season. Similarly, the first pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, Nathan MacKinnon, has scored seven points (one goal, six assists) in his first eight games with the Colorado Avalanche.

The comparisons between the Nova Scotia natives are natural and will be put on display for the first time when the Avalanche travel to face the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2).


Jones leaving little doubt he belongs with Predators

When Seth Jones arrived at Nashville Predators training camp last month, he didn't want his family to make the move with him until he was assured he would be starting the season with the team.

Predators general manager David Poile and coach Barry Trotz made no effort to hide that the No. 4 pick in the 2013 NHL Draft would be doing just that, but Jones still didn't want to take any chances.

So Jones lived with Predators captain Shea Weber, the present and future of the franchise under one roof, playing video games together and getting to know each other.


High demand for MacKinnon gear in Cole Harbour

COLE HARBOUR, Nova Scotia -- If any residents of this town of a little more than 25,000 people went looking for a last-minute purchase of a Colorado Avalanche jersey with No. 29 on the back Sunday -- the day before Nathan MacKinnon plays against his idol, Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, for the first time -- they went home disappointed.

While Crosby-related memorabilia has been a huge seller dating back to his days with Rimouski Oceanic in the Quebec Major Junior League, stores in Cole Harbour and neighboring towns are moving MacKinnon merchandise about as fast as they can get it.


Crosby, MacKinnon making Cole Harbour proud

COLE HARBOUR, Nova Scotia -- The sun rose here a little after 7:30 a.m. on a peaceful Sunday, though its effect was blunted by a cloudy morning.

There are as many signs for deer crossings near the actual harbor as there are for speed limits, something that might someday save the life of the four-point buck that had wondered into a front yard on Davies Lane just before sunrise.

First impressions of Cole Harbour probably aren't much different than most towns this size, a little more than 25,000 residents, in any part of Canada.

The welcome sign is in the shadow of the Walmart. There are several Tim Hortons and a grocery store that advertises exclusive access to Schwartz's famous smoked meat.

There is enough elevation around to provide sweeping vistas of trees splashed with every shade of red, orange and yellow leaves that make this time of year so beautiful in this corner of the world. Those trees are everywhere, save for the places human development or a body of water don't allow them.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
