Morrissey's season-long odyssey nears end in AHL

Friday, 06.13.2014 / 1:56 PM / AHL Update

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

During the 2013-14 season, 19-year-old Josh Morrissey's storied journey on the ice has taken him from Winnipeg Jets training camp to a Western Hockey League campaign in Prince Albert, the World Junior Championship in Sweden, and now the American Hockey League's Calder Cup Finals with the St. John's IceCaps.

"Quite honestly, it's all happened so fast that it hasn't really sunk in yet," said Morrissey, who made his professional debut with the IceCaps, Winnipeg's top development affiliate, at the end of the regular season after the Raiders were eliminated from the WHL playoffs. "Along the way in your career, you don't have that many chances to win championships at any level, so I'm trying to take it all in, enjoy every day and do whatever I can to try and win."

Core of USNTDP defense a talented, close-knit group

Friday, 06.13.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Individually, defensemen Jack Dougherty, Jack Glover, Jonathan MacLeod and Ryan Collins did well for the United States National Team Development Program Under-18 team this season.

Together, they elevated each other and capped their season with a gold medal at the 2014 IIHF World Under-18 Championship.

That togetherness carried them through a stressful time that saw them under the microscope of NHL scouts.

"It's always fun to have teammates around," MacLeod said. "Gives you a little bit of reassurance that you got some buddies here to support you and you support them."

Each of the four brought something different to the table.

Rangers defenseman Stralman quietly gets job done

Thursday, 06.12.2014 / 11:08 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Now that enough time has passed since the New York Rangers changed coaches, it's obvious some players have enjoyed more success playing for Alain Vigneault than they did for John Tortorella.

Ryan McDonagh blossomed into a No. 1 defenseman and a fringe Norris Trophy candidate. Chris Kreider became a regular up front and an important offensive weapon.

The player who might end up prospering the most from the change is defenseman Anton Stralman. Not only has Stralman been given more responsibility by the new coaching staff, he's become a key player for a Stanley Cup finalist because of his ability to play well in those situations.

"I think this is obviously his best year since he came to New York," Rangers forward Carl Hagelin said. "The coaches have a lot of confidence in him, and you can see how he's growing throughout the year. ... He's not going to be a flashy player but he's always finding ways to break the puck out pretty smoothly. He's a good skater. He's finding ways, even when the forecheck is hard on him. He will pivot off guys and find a way to break out.

"He's showed a lot of improvement over the year too. Maybe that's all it takes, is some more confidence and you can do the things you want to do on the ice and make the plays you know you can make. He's not a guy who gets too down on himself. He benefited from the change for sure."

Dorsett: Rangers eager to get right back on the ice

Thursday, 06.12.2014 / 10:36 PM / Player's Blog with the Rangers' Derek Dorsett

Derek Dorsett - Special to NHL.com

New York Rangers forward Derek Dorsett will be blogging for NHL.com throughout the Stanley Cup Final, offering his insight on what is happening inside the walls of his team's locker room and within the confines of the rink.

LOS ANGELES -- We did what we had to do last night. We got the win. And now we have to stick with the same mentality.

It's all cliché, I know, but our backs really are up against the wall and we really do have to take it one game at a time. We have to have the same mentality we had going into Game 4. We have to make sure we're focused, prepared and rested so we can make sure we keep our season going.

I don't think we played our best game of the series in Game 4. None of us do. But sometimes that's the way it works in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Hank [goaltender Henrik Lundqvist] stood on his head for us. He was great. Now we have to forget what happened and come with our best game tomorrow.

Rangers' Richards copes with demotion to fourth line

Thursday, 06.12.2014 / 10:25 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Brad Richards sensed a change was coming. It usually does when your team is trailing 3-0 in any series, let alone the Stanley Cup Final. The way he had been playing and feeling in the series, he probably could sense the change involved him.

So when New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault approached Richards before Game 4 on Wednesday to talk to him about the lineup and where he was going to play, you can imagine how unsurprised Richards was to learn that he was being bumped down to the fourth line.

He said his reaction to the news that he was being demoted was simply, "Go try to win a game, really. If you're down 3-0, you know, there's something that has to change sometimes. Just talk to the new linemates, go play."

Rangers know they have to be better to win Game 5

Thursday, 06.12.2014 / 9:54 PM / Kings vs Rangers - 2014 Stanley Cup Final

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Thursday was a big-picture day for the New York Rangers because of what they survived on Wednesday.

The players woke up in the morning, stretched out their arms and collectively realized their season wasn't over yet, that they preserved it for at least another two days by beating the Los Angeles Kings 2-1 in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final at Madison Square Garden.

The cross-country flight that can sometimes summon tired groans from weary players was in fact a welcome gift. Upon landing, the Rangers went directly to Staples Center for a full team practice that was met with enthusiasm and vigor instead of dread and lethargy.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
