Anaheim Ducks forward Shawn Horcoff was suspended for 20 games without pay Tuesday for violating terms of the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the League and the players, the suspension is accompanied by mandatory referral to the NHL/NHLPA Program for Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health for evaluation and possible treatment.

"While recovering from an injury I suffered this past fall, I tried a treatment that I believed would help speed up the healing process," Horcoff said in a statement. "Although I was unaware that this treatment was not permitted under NHL rules that is no excuse whatsoever. I should have done my research and I should have checked with the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program's doctors. I accept full responsibility for my actions, and I am sorry. Throughout my entire career I have felt genuinely blessed and honored to play the great game of hockey and I regret the impact that this may have on my team and our fans."

Fantasy forwards: Lines with late staying power

Tuesday, 01.26.2016 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Pete Jensen - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Less than one week into the 2015-16 season, I wrote about new lines with staying power. Each of the three featured lines has no more than one elite player and has been a driving force of fantasy success as we approach the NHL All-Star break.

Hart Trophy favorite Patrick Kane of the Chicago Blackhawks holds a 15-point lead in the NHL scoring race playing with top-scoring rookie Artemi Panarin and Artem Anisimov. Rookie Dylan Larkin, a 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game selection, has spent most of the season on the Detroit Red Wings’ top line with Henrik Zetterberg and Justin Abdelkader. And although Max Domi has been skating with Martin Hanzal lately for the Arizona Coyotes, a good chunk of his rookie success has come with Mikkel Boedker and Antoine Vermette as linemates.

So, on a similar note, here's the big question: Which lines around the League can stick together and be fantasy difference-makers down the stretch? Here are some lines with no more than one elite player that have shown chemistry and could translate to consistent fantasy success over the final 30 or more games of the season:

The Florida Panthers on Tuesday signed center Aleksander Barkov to a six-year contract extension.

Financial terms were not disclosed. The Miami Herald reported the contract, which runs through the 2021-22 season, is worth $35.4 million.

It's good to know right now I'm going to be here for the next six years. I feel safe, but I'm not going to stop working. I'll work even harder and get better."

The Panthers selected Barkov with the second pick in the 2013 NHL Draft. His entry-level contract expires July 1; his salary-cap charge this season is $925,000, according to war-on-ice.com.

Sabres' Eichel, Reinhart seeing progress in games

Tuesday, 01.26.2016 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Buffalo Sabres coach Dan Bylsma is set for the foreseeable future with twin-bill centers Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart in the fold.

Not only is each beginning to find his niche within the structure of how Bylsma would like to operate on a daily basis, but they're making major contributions for a team five wins from exceeding its 2014-15 win total (23).

"Where will Jack and Sam be four years from now? That's a good question," Bylsma told NHL.com. "I think you can't quite look at them and say they're grown men and they're the best that they're going to be right now. They're playing a grown man's game and being effective at it, and I look forward to the future. I think they are both going to get better and it's going to be fun to watch."
