Jordan Subban scores alley-oop on brother Malcolm

Tuesday, 08.19.2014 / 9:29 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Jordan Subban was asked to do something unique in the practice-ending shootout Tuesday.

Did he ever.

The Vancouver Canucks defenseman prospect scored an alley-oop goal against his brother Malcolm Subban, a Boston Bruins goalie prospect, at a preseason conditioning camp in Toronto.

"That was the first time I tried it; we just made it up as we went along," Jordan told the Canucks website. "We were told to have fun and do something silly, like the NBA dunk contest, so I guess that was my inspiration."

Senators lineup deep, could lack elite-level skill

Tuesday, 08.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2014-15

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Ottawa Senators made a big move last summer, trading three top-notch young assets for proven NHL scorer Bobby Ryan in an attempt to bolster a roster that made the Stanley Cup Playoffs two years running but failed to advance past the second round.

After a 2012-13 season in which the Senators were resilient in the face of injury woes, Ottawa was comparably quite healthy last season. The results were not as expected, though, after the Senators were a trendy pick to finish near the top of the Eastern Conference.

One issue simply was luck. Other than the New Jersey Devils, no other team that remained in playoff contention for much of the season had a bigger disparity between its Corsi-for percentage (Ottawa finished tied for seventh at even strength) and its goals-for percentage (the Senators finished 19th). That's not all luck. Some of it can be poor goaltending or bad special teams.

Captain, goaltending among Senators' five questions

Tuesday, 08.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2014-15

Sean Farrell - NHL.com Correspondent

After years of stability with Daniel Alfredsson as the captain, the Ottawa Senators will be looking for a new source of on-ice leadership for a second season in a row.

Who, if anyone, will take the captaincy this season is among five questions the Senators will be looking to address as they get ready to work their way back into the Stanley Cup Playoffs:

Senators sure lessons learned will lead to playoffs

Tuesday, 08.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2014-15

Sean Farrell - NHL.com Correspondent

NHL.com continues its preview of the 2014-15 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout August.

The Ottawa Senators will be looking to move forward in 2014-15 after taking a step back last season.

A slow start and inconsistent play left Ottawa on the outside looking in at the Stanley Cup Playoffs as the Senators missed the postseason for the third time in six seasons.

"I think we learned a lot from last year," center Kyle Turris said. "I think the previous two years before that was kind of a step forward, and I think last year was a step back and we really got to evaluate everything and it was a great lesson because we learned a lot, we took a lot out of it. We're a young team to begin with but having to learn from last year and having gone through some success a couple of years before that, I think that we're still a young group but I feel like we've matured a lot and we're going to have a really good team this year."

Turris ready to be Senators' undisputed No. 1 center

Tuesday, 08.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2014-15

Sean Farrell - NHL.com Correspondent

All of a sudden there is no debate about who is centering the Ottawa Senators' top line.

Kyle Turris was flanked by right wing Bobby Ryan and left wing Clarke MacArthur for most of the 2013-14 season and the line consistently rivaled whoever then-captain Jason Spezza centered as Ottawa's top offensive unit.

With Spezza being traded to the Dallas Stars in July, Turris will have the spotlight squarely on himself. He'll now be expected to maintain and drive the Senators' production as Ottawa looks to find its way back into the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2014-15.

Senators' top 10 prospects powered by Lazar, Stone

Tuesday, 08.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2014-15

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Ottawa Senators have invested heavily in their pipeline of prospects in recent years, and that trend is expected to continue in 2014-15.

The team had 11 players in the lineup last season who were 25 years or younger, and though the loss of captain Jason Spezza in a five-player trade with the Dallas Stars on July 1 might be tough to overcome at the outset, there should be a few players looking to provide similar energy and enthusiasm.

"I think there's quite a lot of opportunities; I think we've invested into a lot of players," Senators assistant general manager Pierre Dorion said. "I think [Senators director of hockey operations and player development] Randy Lee has done a tremendous job developing a lot of these guys. We feel we've got guys [with the Binghamton Senators in the American Hockey League] that can really come in here and play.

"I think you always have to look internally before you look externally to see, 'Do we have these players within our organization?' And I think we do."

Senators, Borowiecki agree to terms on extension

Monday, 08.18.2014 / 10:51 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

NHL.com

The Ottawa Senators and defenseman Mark Borowiecki have agreed to terms on a three-year contract extension, the team announced Monday.

Borowiecki, 25, is entering the final season of his contract and could have become a restricted free agent had he been unsigned after the 2014-15 season.

"Obviously there's still no guarantees," Borowiecki told the Ottawa Sun. "It is a bit of security and confidence, but at the same time it's a bit of a kick in the pants, too. I'm 25 years old, it's time for me to sort of cement myself as a full time NHLer. This gives me the chance to do it."

Advanced stats could influence Maple Leafs lineup

Monday, 08.18.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2014-15

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

For a combination of reasons, the Toronto Maple Leafs became the flashpoint in a battle for acceptance of advanced statistics in hockey last season.

The Maple Leafs front office was famously not on board, and at the same time Toronto was one of the teams not performing the way those statistics said it should be. After missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the eighth time in nine seasons, thanks in large part to a late-season swoon, the Maple Leafs made some major changes this offseason.

New president Brendan Shanahan did not make major personnel changes, but he did hire Kyle Dubas, an Ontario Hockey League general manager well versed in analytics, to join the front office. The new-look management group did try to improve the depth up front and on the back end.

Maple Leafs' Gardiner hopes to justify new contract

Monday, 08.18.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2014-15

Sean Farrell - NHL.com Correspondent

This summer, the Toronto Maple Leafs stepped up to demonstrate their faith in Jake Gardiner's abilities. Now it's up to the smooth-skating defenseman to deliver on the five-year, $20.5 million contract he signed with the team on July 29.

Rather than accept a short-term bridge deal, the 24-year-old Minnesota native elected to commit long term to Toronto through what should prove to be his prime years.

"I am happy to be a Leaf for a really long time," Gardiner told the Toronto Star. "That was a big part of it, commitment. I thought having five years and the money was awesome. The security for me was good. It just shows the Leafs have a lot of faith in me."

Goalie competition tops Maple Leafs' five questions

Monday, 08.18.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2014-15

Sean Farrell - NHL.com Correspondent

The Toronto Maple Leafs figure to again be battling for a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs until the end of the regular season. New president Brendan Shanahan retained general manager Dave Nonis and coach Randy Carlyle, but put his stamp on the franchise by imposing new assistant coaches on Carlyle and an untried wunderkind on Nonis, 28-year-old assistant general manager Kyle Dubas.

Here are five questions the Maple Leafs face as they embark on their quest to return to the playoffs for the second time in 11 years:

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
