Ovechkin impresses former Capitals standout Bondra

If there's anyone who knows what Alex Ovechkin is going through, it's Peter Bondra.

Ovechkin has been the face of the Washington Capitals for the past decade, a role he took over from Bondra, who scored 472 goals and had 825 points in 13-plus seasons in Washington, each a Capitals record until Ovechkin broke it last season.

"I see him all the time," Bondra said Wednesday, shortly after being named a scout for Team Europe for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey. "We talk. I congratulated him so many times because he passed a couple of my records, so I was in the locker room a couple times as well."

The No. 1 pick in the 2004 NHL Draft, Ovechkin has scored 50 or more goals in six of his first 10 seasons in the League. He will have a chance to score his 484th career goal and move past Hockey Hall of Fame member Sergei Fedorov for the most by a Russian-born player in NHL history when the Capitals host the Calgary Flames on Friday (7 p.m. ET; SNW, CSN-DC).

Super 16: Blackhawks could dominate Hall weekends

The Detroit Red Wings have been front and center in Hockey Hall of Fame weekends for much of the past eight years because of what they accomplished in winning the Stanley Cup three times in a span of six years in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

The Chicago Blackhawks also have won the Stanley Cup three times in a span of six years and are heading down a similar path that could lead to their being the dominating presence at several Hall of Fame weekends to come.

Nicklas Lidstrom and Sergei Fedorov became the fourth and fifth players who played on all three of Detroit's Stanley Cup championship teams from 1997-2002 to be inducted into the Hall of Fame when they were enshrined Monday in Toronto. They were the eighth and ninth players from the 2002 team to be inducted. A 10th player from that team, Pavel Datsyuk, could get into the Hall eventually.

Jets' Maurice named to Team Europe staff

Thursday, 11.12.2015 / 4:54 PM / World Cup of Hockey 2016

Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice enjoyed the conversations he had with Ralph Krueger when they both worked for the Carolina Hurricanes.

They'll have a chance to renew those talks when they work together at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

Maurice was named an assistant coach on Krueger's staff for Team Europe at the event, which will be held Sept. 17-Oct. 1 at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

"Very excited to work with Ralph," Maurice said from Dallas, where the Jets play at the Dallas Stars on Thursday. "He's a real interesting guy. He's been around hockey for an awfully long time but done a tremendous amount of work in leadership and building organizations and motivating them. So it'll be a great opportunity. A bunch of players I've never worked with before and a great challenge."

PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Flyers general manager Ron Hextall would like to see more accountability from his team than he's witnessed in recent weeks.

"Accountability is something that has to become a staple around here," Hextall said following the Flyers' morning skate at Wells Fargo Center on Thursday.

The Flyers (5-7-3), who have lost seven of the past eight games while being outscored 16-9 at even strength, face the Washington Capitals (7 p.m. ET, CSN-PH, CSN-DC).

Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice was named an assistant coach for Team Europe for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, the NHL and NHL Players' Association announced Thursday.

In addition, former NHL players Peter Bondra, Sean Burke, Lorne Henning and Vaclav Nedomansky, and executive Ricky Olczyk, were named as scouts.

Krueger's relationship with Maurice dates to 2008, when Maurice coached the Carolina Hurricanes and Krueger, who was coach of Switzerland's national team, was helping with European player recruitment. Krueger also helped Maurice make the decision to coach Magnitogorsk in the Kontinental Hockey League in 2012-13.

Lundqvist is perfect pie-stopper on 'Tonight Show'

Thursday, 11.12.2015 / 12:34 PM / News

New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist's puck-stopping ability has helped him win a Vezina Trophy, an Olympic gold medal and play in three NHL All-Star Games.

So how hard could it for him to stop miniature pumpkin pies?

"Piece of cake," Lundqvist said during an appearance Wednesday on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" on NBC.

Fallon had 10 seconds to try to shoot as many pies as he could past Lundqvist. The Rangers goaltender, who has a .949 save percentage in 12 NHL games, had a shutout against Fallon. And they weren't all easy saves; Lundqvist had to stretch to make a low glove save on the first pie, then react quickly to make a head-high blocker save on the second shot.
