Red Wings undecided on re-signing Alfredsson

Wednesday, 08.27.2014 / 6:29 PM / News

NHL.com

Forward Daniel Alfredsson is training with the intent to play another season with the Detroit Red Wings, but general manager Ken Holland said no decision has been made to re-sign the 41-year-old unrestricted free agent.

"I haven't talked to him in about a month," Holland told the Detroit Free Press on Wednesday. "He's training hard. He's training to play. He does want to play. When I last talked to him, he said he felt good; he wanted to feel great.

"He would love to play another year. He wants to play for us. He only wants to play if he feels he can contribute. The best test for him is to skate a couple weeks prior to training camp."

Holland said he would speak to Alfredsson again next week. The Red Wings begin training camp Sept. 18.

Drouin, Lehtera top Sitkoff's fantasy sleepers list

Wednesday, 08.27.2014 / 11:00 AM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

With few exceptions, the majority of top-tier players are established and well-known to the common fantasy owner. Though those players are integral components of a championship team, under-the-radar options with high potential -- better known as sleepers -- can pay huge dividends in fantasy leagues.

Whether drafted or added off waivers, these players typically are undervalued on draft day but ultimately can become major fantasy commodities by season's end. Sleepers are extremely unpredictable every season, but the bottom line is these players end up outperforming everyone’s expectations, regardless of their age, team or position.

This week, NHL.com fantasy insiders Matt Cubeta, Pete Jensen and Matt Sitkoff take in-depth looks at underrated players who should be on your fantasy team's radar entering drafts. Each expert will provide 10 sleeper picks with corresponding stat projections (in order of preference), along with five additional candidates for fantasy owners to keep an eye on.

Wednesday, 08.27.2014 / 8:55 AM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Free agent defenseman Cory Sarich is improving in his recovery from injuries sustained in a cycling accident one month ago.

In an interview with the Calgary Herald published Tuesday, Sarich said he did not know if or when he would resume his NHL career.

"This has thrown a big wrinkle into it and I don't know what's going to happen. But right now my priority is to get healthy," Sarich told writer Kristen Odland. "I want to get myself back in shape regardless if hockey is an option moving forward. I'm just going to play it by ear from here."

Defense, goaltending strength of Coyotes lineup

Wednesday, 08.27.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2014-15

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

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

In 2011-12, the Arizona Coyotes enjoyed the most successful postseason run in franchise history, reaching the Western Conference Final before losing to the Los Angeles Kings.

Each of the past two seasons since then has followed a similar script. Coach Dave Tippett has kept the Coyotes competitive, but they've ultimately finished just shy of another playoff berth. In 2013-14, they were three points shy of the final wildcard spot after finishing two points behind the Dallas Stars, who would have owned the tiebreaker. Finishing the season with one victory in their final eight games marked the Coyotes' undoing. The year before that, the Coyotes lost eight of nine near the end of the season to fall out of contention.

The name is new, switching from Phoenix to Arizona, but the team will again rely on defense and goaltending to try and carve out a spot in the top eight of the West.

Coyotes hoping fresh start ignites forward Gagner

Wednesday, 08.27.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL.com's 30 in 30 package: 2014-15

Davis Harper - NHL.com Staff Writer

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

When the Arizona Coyotes acquired forward Sam Gagner on June 30 in a three-team transaction, they knew they were getting a player with a unique history.

Once considered a point-producing prodigy, Gagner has never quite lived up to expectations. The Edmonton Oilers drafted him with the sixth pick at the 2007 NHL Draft, and the London, Ontario native made the team out of training camp. Gagner had an immediate impact despite being the youngest player in the NHL in 2007-08, scoring 49 points in 79 games.

Six seasons later, however, Gagner has yet to match that output.

In 2013-14, the 25-year-old endured his worst statistical season, scoring 37 points in 67 games with a minus-29 rating. Trade rumors trailed Gagner and a move this offseason appeared imminent.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
