Penguins' Maatta to have surgery for thyroid tumor

Monday, 10.27.2014 / 2:04 PM / News

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta will undergo surgery next week to remove a tumor from his neck that has an 85-percent chance of being a low-grade thyroid cancer, team doctor Dharmesh Vyas said Monday.

Maatta has been cleared to play until his surgery, and is expected to be in the lineup for each of the Penguins three home games this week. He has been one of the Penguins more efficient defenseman this season playing alongside Kris Letang. Maatta has one goal and five points in seven games, averaging 20:12 of ice time.

"I will say that this news came out about three weeks ago, when Olli was first made aware of it," Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said. "And to watch a young man continue his life and play the way he's played has been absolutely amazing. It's amazing that he can still concentrate and continue on. He's kept this to himself.

"I know a couple of his teammates knew about it, but at the same time, I can't say enough about Olli, about how he's handled this news."

Fantasy All-Access: Buy low on MacKinnon, Rask

Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

By the end of this week, 29 of the 30 NHL teams will have played 10 games, making it a perfect time to look around your fantasy league and find some buy-low candidates to trade.

On average, forward Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche was drafted in the third round in Yahoo leagues, but he has no goals and four assists in nine games. This start might have owners thinking sophomore slump, but don't forget he had seven points in his first 11 games last season, yet finished the season with 56 points in his next 71. The talented center could be had for a low price.

Goaltender Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins, the reigning Vezina Trophy winner, is off to a slow start with a .897 save percentage and is now playing without his biggest weapon, defenseman Zdeno Chara, for the next 4-6 weeks. Email, text or tweet the owner of this talented goalie in your league and watch how they will be eager to trade him for a Darcy Kuemper or Frederik Andersen. They're solid goalie options, but don't forget Rask's best months in his career are December (1.85 goals-against average) and March (20 career wins).

Monday, 10.27.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks center Ryan Kesler doesn't like to use the cliché phrase "measuring stick." Coach Bruce Boudreau would rather not look past any game other than the next one. So leave it up to young defenseman Cam Fowler to say out loud what is probably on the minds of the Ducks regarding their next five games.

"It's certainly going to be challenging," Fowler said.

Starting Sunday against the San Jose Sharks at Honda Center, the Ducks will be tested by some of the best in the Western Conference. They will also play at the Chicago Blackhawks, St. Louis Blues, Dallas Stars and Colorado Avalanche. All five teams were in the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season.
