Fantasy All-Access: Hutchinson emerging for Jets

Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

Every Monday, NHL.com contributor Matt Sitkoff identifies waiver wire pickups, roster trends, schedule notes and a prospect to watch in fantasy hockey.

Thanksgiving is a time for family, food, faceoffs and a chance to reflect on what we are most thankful for. In the fantasy world we are thankful for all the great top line combinations; from the "STL Line" to "That 70's Line" to the top-line threats of the Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators.

These trios have been supplying fantasy owners with plenty of points. We are also thankful for the Calgary Flames defense. The top four of Mark Giordano, TJ Brodie, Dennis Wideman and Kris Russell have combined for 60 points, were all drafted in low rounds or plucked of waiver wires, and have been gravy for fantasy teams. Lastly, we are thankful for Darcy Kuemper, who was drafted on average in the 13th round but is making saves as easy as pie.

Monday, 11.24.2014 / 11:00 AM / News

NHL.com

Pat Quinn, a former NHL coach and player, died Sunday in Vancouver after a lengthy illness. He was 71.

Quinn coached for five NHL teams from 1979 to 2010, reaching the Stanley Cup Final twice and becoming one of four men to win the Jack Adams Trophy as the League's best coach with at least two different franchises.

Internationally, Quinn had an even bigger impact, coaching Canada to several gold medals. None, however, was as important or celebrated as the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics gold medal, which ended a 50-year drought for the hockey-mad country. Quinn also won a gold medal at the 2009 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship.

Quinn, born in Hamilton, Ontario, played 606 NHL games as a defenseman, starting his playing career during the 1968-69 season with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Two years later, he joined the Vancouver Canucks and spent two seasons there before finishing his career with a five-year stint with the Atlanta Flames. He scored 18 goals and 113 assists, and had 950 penalty minutes in his career.

Penguins' Crosby early leader in Hart Trophy race

Monday, 11.24.2014 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

The Pittsburgh Penguins have been a picture of stability since winning the Stanley Cup in 2009.

But their lack of success in the Stanley Cup Playoffs since that time led to an offseason of drastic change.

General manager Ray Shero, coach Dan Bylsma and assistant coach Tony Granato were let go, while Bylsma's other assistant, Jacques Martin, was reassigned as senior advisor of hockey operations. Jim Rutherford was brought in as general manager and Mike Johnston as coach, defensemen Matt Niskanen and Brooks Orpik were allowed to leave as free agents, and James Neal was traded to the Nashville Predators for Patric Hornqvist and Nick Spaling. In all, eight players who took part in at least 41 games last season were not on the opening night roster this season.
