Top prospects a hit at clinic with Philadelphia youth

Thursday, 06.26.2014 / 2:03 PM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- Kootenay Ice center Sam Reinhart politely introduced himself to a group of six young skaters of the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation at the beautifully refurbished Scanlon Ice Rink on Thursday before finally asking if anyone had any questions of him.

"I do," 11-year-old Philadelphia native Yasir Terry boldly announced.

"When you get drafted, can you give me a shout out on stage?"

Reinhart, one of six North American prospects on hand to help run a top prospects clinic in the downtown section of the city, smiled and said, "Hmm, I don't know if I can. But I'll see what I can do."

Terry smiled before getting instruction on how to run the drill at the skating station he was a part of at the time.

It was actually one of the more common requests of the afternoon when members of the Snider Youth Hockey Foundation, aged 8-12, were able to go shoulder-to-hip alongside the top 2014 draft prospects.

Youth hockey foundation's growth a thrill for Snider

Thursday, 06.26.2014 / 1:42 PM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

PHILADELPHIA -- When the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation was created in 2005, the goal was to use hockey as a way to help in-need children around the Philadelphia region.

In the nine years that have passed since, the foundation has grown to serve more than 3,000 children at rinks in Philadelphia and New Jersey. The foundation also has renovated and assumed management of five Philadelphia-owned ice rinks.

Another milestone was reached Thursday when six of the top prospects for the 2014 NHL Draft -- Kingston Frontenacs center Samuel Bennett, Barrie Colts defenseman Aaron Ekblad, Kootenay Ice center Sam Reinhart, Prince Albert Raiders center Leon Draisaitl, Oshawa Generals left wing Michael Dal Colle and Sarnia Sting defenseman Anthony DeAngelo -- helped run a clinic for about 40 Snider Hockey kids at Scanlon Rink in the Kensington section of the city.

Top restricted free agents present unique challenges

Thursday, 06.26.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

While very few restricted free agents have changed teams in the NHL's salary-cap era, how teams negotiate contracts for their young talent is a huge part of constructing a roster in the long term.

Whether the player is negotiating his second or third contract can have an effect on the money involved. The tweaks to the Collective Bargaining Agreement before the 2012-13 season could also have an impact on negotiations.

There are a lot of talented players who could command significant money this summer. Here's a look at some of the most interesting RFAs who need a new contract this offseason.

No consensus on No. 1 pick as NHL Draft approaches

Thursday, 06.26.2014 / 12:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Scouts who have spent the last year evaluating the prospects for the 2014 NHL Draft can agree on one thing: This year's class is one of the most difficult in recent memory to evaluate.

That difficulty starts at the top, where with less than 48 hours to go before the start of the draft Friday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN, RDS), there's no consensus as to who will be the first player picked.

Unlike previous years, where Sidney Crosby (2005), Steven Stamkos (2008), John Tavares (2009) and Taylor Hall (2010) were clear-cut top choices, this year's No. 1 selection won't be known until Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tallon steps to the podium at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia -- assuming he hasn't traded the pick.

NHL.com

The Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday signed forward Marian Gaborik to a seven-year contract extension. Financial terms were not disclosed, but the average annual value is $4.875 million, according to multiple sources.

Penguins name Mike Johnston new coach

Wednesday, 06.25.2014 / 2:24 PM / News

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins ended their nearly three weeks without a coach by appointing former Portland Winterhawks coach Mike Johnston to the position Wednesday.

Johnston, whose NHL experience comes from his time as assistant/associate coach of the Vancouver Canucks from 1999-2006 and associate coach of the Los Angeles Kings from 2006-08, had been coach and general manager of the Western Hockey League's Winterhawks for the past six seasons.

Johnston replaces Dan Bylsma, who was fired June 6.

"As a career coach, you aspire to get to these positions," Johnston said. "And certainly I've been in the National Hockey League before as an associate coach, but to coach at this level is something I've aspired to do. It's been my goal, it's been my dream and I'm really thrilled to be standing here today.

"When I first started coaching, I coached in a small college in Alberta and four years into my job, I sent a letter to several NHL general managers and I said, 'I've been coaching for four years now … and I'm ready to coach in the NHL.' Just keep it in mind."
