Islanders' Grabner facing hearing

Sunday, 10.20.2013 / 5:07 PM / Department of Player Safety News


New York Islanders forward Michael Grabner will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday for an incident against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

At approximately 6:42 of the first period, Grabner collided with Hurricanes forward Nathan Gerbe in the left wing faceoff circle, sending Gerbe to the ice. There was no penalty called on the play and Gerbe took his regular shifts throughout the game.

The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: illegal check to the head. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.

Carolina won the game, 4-3.


Stanley defied the odds throughout HOF career

In the spring of 1966, Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Allan Stanley suffered a season-ending knee injury. Stanley was 40 years old, had won three Stanley Cup championships and written himself into the history books of four of the Original Six NHL franchises. Billed throughout his career as a plodding, purposeful player, "Snowshoes" had grown even more labored with age. In short, the injury was clearly of the career-ending variety.

"Stanley was the best left defenseman in the business," coach Punch Imlach said at the time, with a touch of nostalgia.

"Nobody can be called indispensable in a team game. But if there was one guy we couldn't afford to lose, it was Stanley," added longtime defense partner Tim Horton, as if Stanley had already announced his retirement.

But he hadn't. In a career spent defying odds and ignoring naysayers, Stanley had one more comeback up his sleeve. The Hall of Fame defenseman returned in 1966-67 to provide a vital, calming dimension to the "Over the Hill Gang" in Toronto as they skated to their fourth Stanley Cup title in six seasons.

Stanley died Friday. He was 87.

The Anaheim Ducks are hitting the road after they host the Dallas Stars on Sunday. They'd like to take a seven-game winning streak with them.

The Ducks were routed 6-1 by the Colorado Avalanche in their season opener, but they haven't lost since. Anaheim's 3-2 shootout victory against the Phoenix Coyotes on Friday night was their sixth win in a row, and their fourth in as many games during their first homestand of the season.

After hosting Dallas, the Ducks play their next eight on the road; they don't return to Honda Center until they host Phoenix on Nov. 6.

Here's a look at Sunday's action:


Sunday Long Read: Tough decision, NHL or juniors

Hockey prodigies Jonathan Drouin and Nathan MacKinnon have been virtually inseparable for the past two years. Now they have been forced apart by the decisions of NHL team executives and sent to opposite ends of the hockey spectrum.

Drouin and MacKinnon combined to lift Halifax to the top of the Canadian Hockey League during the past two seasons, and an assumption grew that they would be high first-round picks in the 2013 NHL Draft and begin a head-to-head battle at the NHL level that would last the better part of two decades.

But that duel must wait at least a year now after the unexpected decision by Tampa Bay Lightning management to send Drouin back to juniors before the 2013-14 regular season began.
