Murphy sets sights on Carolina's blue line

Wednesday, 07.17.2013 / 7:47 PM / Prospects

A taste of the NHL has only whetted Ryan Murphy's appetite for more.

Murphy, the 12th player taken in the 2011 NHL Draft, was the captain of the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League when he received an emergency call-up in February after injuries decimated the Carolina Hurricanes' blue line. The then-19-year-old wound up staying with the Hurricanes for four games and averaging more than 21 minutes a night. Though he didn't have a point and was minus-4 during his brief stint, those four games gave him an idea of what life in the NHL is like.

With his junior career behind him, Murphy is aiming for a longer stay in Raleigh as he takes part in the Hurricanes' development camp this week -- though he knows that if he makes the parent club, he won't be seeing the same kind of minutes as he did in February.

Jayson Megna hopes next stop is Pittsburgh

Wednesday, 07.17.2013 / 5:54 PM / Prospects

Chris Adamski - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Twenty-three years ago, Jay Megna gave his son his name. He wasn't going to give him the same athletic career path.

Jay's first son Jayson ("I think that was kind of like a little pun on words, I guess," Jayson said with a chuckle) didn't grow up wanting to play college or pro football like his father did. Instead, Jayson Megna chose hockey -- and as he participates in the Pittsburgh Penguins' development camp this week, Megna has is hoping to complete a rare four-levels-of-hockey-in-four-years superfecta.

Megna, a 23-year-old forward, will have the opportunity earn one of the vacant spots in the Penguins' lineup at training camp in September.

"Jayson Megna ... is one of those guys who can compete for the opportunity to play in Pittsburgh this season," said John Hynes, coach of Pittsburgh's American Hockey League affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

Anthony Brodeur's first day at rookie camp a success

Monday, 07.15.2013 / 4:23 PM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- It was a bit surreal seeing a "Brodeur" manning one goal Monday, the first day of New Jersey Devils rookie camp, at AmeriHealth Pavilion at Prudential Center.

Still, the oldest son of Devils future Hall of Fame goalie Martin Brodeur was all smiles on the opening day of camp. He not only was given his official Devils jersey -- No. 50 -- but was allowed to sit at father's locker-room stall.

"I was thinking to myself, I've put this jersey on a lot of times, but it was No. 50 [not his father's No. 30], so it was a little different," Brodeur said following his session on the ice. "It was a pretty special feeling actually stepping on the ice with the Brodeur jersey on with the Devils logo on the front."

Brodeur even received instruction from Devils goalie coach Chris Terreri, who also coaches his father.

"It wasn't so weird that he was my coach," Brodeur said. "A coach is a coach no matter if I met him when I was 1 year old or now."

Barkov waits to heal to show Panthers his game

Monday, 07.15.2013 / 11:47 AM / Prospects

Alain Poupart - NHL.com Correspondent

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. -- While the large pool of blue-chip prospects for the Florida Panthers was on display this past week during the team's annual development camp, the latest addition was relegated to the role of spectator.

While Aleksander Barkov did get on the ice for some individual skating on the final three days of the week-long camp, he couldn't take part in any of the practices or the intra-squad scrimmage on the final day because of his continuing rehabilitation from shoulder surgery in March.

Nonetheless, Barkov said he enjoyed the week because it gave him a taste of South Florida and only reinforced the notion that this is where he wants to be this fall. To further cement this point, he signed his three-year, entry-level contract with the team Monday.

Bruins' goalie plans don't involve rushing Subban

Thursday, 07.11.2013 / 9:00 AM / Prospects

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

WILMINGTON, Mass. – As one of the top prospects for the Boston Bruins, Malcolm Subban watched the 2013 Stanley Cup Playoffs and the Final with a rooting interest.

As a goaltender, Subban intensely watched the play of Bruins star Tuukka Rask throughout the run that came up two wins short with a six-game defeat to the Chicago Blackhawks in the last series of the season.

"I felt bad for him," Subban said of Rask after the first day on ice at the Bruins' seventh annual development camp Wednesday at Ristuccia Arena. "He played so well and he deserved a bit more, maybe the Conn Smythe or something. A Stanley Cup ring, obviously. But it's tough. Stuff happens like that, and, you know, a couple bad breaks and just like that it's over. So, you know, I don't think there's much else he could've done. It was just some bad luck if you watch the last few minutes. I thought he played really well; I thought the whole team played well."

Youngest Reinhart a headliner for 2014 NHL Draft

Wednesday, 07.10.2013 / 9:00 AM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Is it possible the last of the Reinhart brothers might be the first to go No. 1 at the NHL draft?

The odds are pretty good, according to preliminary reports. Sam Reinhart, a center with the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League is part of a new group of prospects from around the globe hoping to make an impact prior to the 2014 NHL Draft, which will be held June 27-28 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

As expected, the 6-foot-1, 186-pound right-shot forward has earned a spot on NHL Central Scouting's 2013-14 Futures List, which is comprised of players the League's scouting arm considers to possess first-, second- or third-round potential.

It was a banner year for top 2013 NHL Draft prospects starring overseas, with seven European skaters selected in the first round.

Heading that group was Finnish center Aleksander Barkov, who was chosen by the Florida Panthers with the No. 2 pick. The 2014 list of draft-eligible European prospects hopes to continue that success.

According to NHL Director of European Scouting Goran Stubb, the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka Tournament, scheduled for Aug. 5-10 in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, will offer a better insight into the top Europeans entering the 2013-14 season.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.

— Brian Elliott to Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch on being the Blues' No. 1 goalie
