Lester Patrick recipient Holmgren a career Flyer

Tuesday, 09.16.2014 / 4:50 PM / Lester Patrick Trophy

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Paul Holmgren is proud of his Minnesota roots, but even he admits Philadelphia is his home now.

The Philadelphia Flyers president on Tuesday was named a recipient of the 2014 Lester Patrick Award for his contributions to hockey in the United States. He will be honored, along with fellow recipient NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly, during a ceremony Dec. 4 in Minneapolis, just across the river from his hometown of St. Paul, Minn.

"Everybody knew who Paul Holmgren was, whether you were playing or you were a fan," Daly said. "He generated a lot of respect. Then you get to appreciate his background in the sport, where he came from, his roots in Minnesota, his different roles in the sport, working his way up to now being president of the Flyers. His career and his journey to where he is today is quite a remarkable accomplishment, and that's why he's so deserving of this award."

Holmgren, 58, has spent almost his entire professional life as part of the Flyers organization.

Daly: Lester Patrick honor reflects NHL as whole

Tuesday, 09.16.2014 / 4:38 PM / Lester Patrick Trophy

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly admittedly is uncomfortable with being singled out for an individual award as prestigious in hockey as the Lester Patrick Trophy. It's not his style to be front and center accepting praise and applause for a job well done.

That's why when Daly steps on stage to accept the Lester Patrick Trophy at the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Dinner on Dec. 4, he will do so with the NHL and the people he represents in mind.

After all, Daly said, he wouldn't even be considered for such an honor without the backing of Commissioner Gary Bettman and the owners he works for.

Flyers hope to see Timonen return to good health

Tuesday, 09.16.2014 / 3:45 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

PINE HILL, N.J. -- The Philadelphia Flyers acknowledge there will be a sizable deficit to cover if defenseman Kimmo Timonen is out for a significant amount of time this season.

However, Timonen's teammates will trade his on-ice absence for knowing the 39-year-old will at least be healthy.

The Flyers announced Aug. 5 that Timonen had been diagnosed with blood clots in his lower right leg and both lungs. He spent time in a hospital in his native Finland receiving treatment, but has been in the Philadelphia area for about two weeks.

"Just good to see him around and in good spirits," defenseman Nicklas Grossmann said. "When things happen to people like that, you're always worried about the person. You don't really think much about the hockey player Kimmo, but about the person and his family and all that. You want him to get healthy quick."

Morrissey eyes making Jets after marathon season

Tuesday, 09.16.2014 / 2:41 PM / Prospects

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

PENTICTON, British Columbia -- Conventional wisdom suggests after a 112-game season, one would fancy a bit of a break.

But Joshua Morrissey is ready for more, and the 19-year-old hopes it's with the Winnipeg Jets.

"I grew a lot as a player [last year] … just feeling comfortable with the pros," said Morrissey, who had triple digits in games on behalf of the Jets (NHL preseason), Prince Albert Raiders (Western Hockey League preseason, regular season and playoffs), Canada's national junior team (World Junior Championship) and the St. John's IceCaps (American Hockey League regular season and playoffs) in 2013-14.

"I'm coming in here now wanting to make the Jets," Morrissey said. "I'm going to do everything I can to do that. A big key for me was to gain strength and size to be able to play the man's game at the next level. I'll never be the biggest guy in the League, but I'm a lot stronger now. That's huge for me.

"I think I'm ready to make that jump."

Speaking at the prospect tournament in Traverse City, Mich., Kekalainen urged his star center not to miss the start of training camp, which begins with physicals on Thursday.

"Our success is going to come from being a team, not a bunch of individuals or stars, or whatever," Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch "We're not a star-studded team. To me it's huge that you go through training camp together and get ready."

Stars executives experienced in building a winner

Tuesday, 09.16.2014 / 9:00 AM / Traverse City Prospects Tournament

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Dallas Stars general manager Jim Nill and director of amateur scouting Joe McDonnell each know a little something about building the perfect beast.

It starts with the draft and continues with the development stage until that player is deemed capable of withstanding the rigors of an NHL regular season.

This is something Nill was accustomed to doing prior to joining the Stars after spending 19 seasons as a member of the Detroit Red Wings management team, where his responsibilities included directing the amateur scouting department, overseeing all selections at the NHL Draft and managing the development of the organization's prospects.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.

— Capitals defenseman Mike Green on teammate Alex Ovechkin's highlight-reel goal against the Devils on Saturday
