Tuesday, 11.19.2013 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur:

NEWARK, N.J. -- Martin Brodeur is closer to the Hall of Fame than he is to scoring another long-term contract, but that hasn't stopped the New Jersey Devils goaltender from continuing to build on his laundry list of NHL records, including wins, shutouts, games played and minutes played.

Brodeur, 41, has six wins, a 1.98 goals-against average, .919 save percentage and two shutouts in 11 starts this season despite not having a firm grip on the No. 1 job that he held for nearly two decades. Cory Schneider is working in tandem with Brodeur to provide the Devils some of the best goaltending in the NHL this season.

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Darryl Sittler, a former Toronto Maple Leafs forward and member of the Hockey Hall of Fame:

TORONTO -- Nearly 38 years ago as a player for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Darryl Sittler scored 10 points in a game against the Boston Bruins, setting an NHL record for most points in a single game that has stood the test of time.

Nowadays, Sittler is trying to have an influence off the ice as a community representative for the Maple Leafs, and his job is a heck of a lot easier than it was a few years ago.

"Wendel Clark and I work with the organization, so we're out there in the community working with some corporate partners and doing some charity work, and it's a lot more fun when you're out there to have a team people are excited about and want to talk about," Sittler told NHL.com. "We've got a lot of loyal fans that have been around for a long time, whether it's here in Toronto or across Canada. I, as an ex-player and a member of the Maple Leaf organization, want us to do well for those fans that have been loyal and diehard for so many years."

Five Questions: Blackhawks' Hossa much healthier

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With ..." runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Chicago Blackhawks right wing Marian Hossa:

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Chicago Blackhawks right wing Marian Hossa never wanted to have back surgery this past summer, and he feels fortunate that he didn't have to. The last thing Hossa wanted to do was spend his offseason (especially one after winning the Stanley Cup) rehabbing from what could have been an invasive operation to repair nerve problems that were affecting his right leg and foot.

Hossa and the Blackhawks instead decided rest was his best option, but things looked dicey for him during training camp. Hossa didn't play in any of Chicago's six preseason games and missed most of the final week before the regular season began because of an undisclosed upper-body injury.

The injury threw off Hossa's timing and brought his health into further question.

The latest edition features Pittsburgh Penguins forward Chris Kunitz:

Chris Kunitz knows there are a lot of hockey players who would trade places with him nowadays.

He gets to reap the rewards of playing on a line with arguably the best player in the game today, Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby. And despite being 34 years old and now in his ninth full NHL season, Kunitz never has been better or more productive than he has been so far in the 2013-14 season.

Kunitz has become better than a point-per-game player since the start of last season (62 points in 56 games heading into the Pens' game Monday) and this past summer Hockey Canada officially declared him a candidate to be on the 2014 Canadian Olympic team by making him one of 45 players invited to attend Canada's Olympic orientation camp in August.
