Mister Cartoon offers new take on logos

Shawn P. Roarke - NHL.com Senior Managing Editor

LOS ANGELES – Mister Cartoon, an art icon in the Los Angeles area, is always looking for ways to give back to the community that only nurtured his artistic bent, but also provides inspiration for the art that has earned him international acclaim.

So when presented with an opportunity to work with the NHL and the Los Angeles Kings to help promote the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game at Dodger Stadium between the Kings and the Anaheim Ducks at Dodger Stadium, Mister Cartoon jumped at the chance.

"This is a great project, a combination of different teams," he said. "Being able to draw the Ducks logo, the Kings logo and the Stadium Series logo and bring it together with a little bit of street graffiti edge of something that was born right here in L.A.."

He also knew he could provide even more exposure for the Para Los Ninos Charter Middle School in the deal.

Lovejoy: Fun on Friday, serious on Saturday

Ben Lovejoy - Special to NHL.com

Anaheim Ducks defenseman Ben Lovejoy can barely contain his enthusiasm for the upcoming 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the Ducks and the Los Angeles Kings (Saturday, 9:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC) at Dodger Stadium. In his first edition of the player blog he is doing for NHL.com for the next three days, Lovejoy talks about the history of Dodger Stadium, the uniqueness of playing hockey in Southern California, the rivalry that will be on display Saturday night for the rest of the hockey world to see and a special skate he has planned during Friday's family skate after the Ducks practice.

His second blog entry comes after the Ducks got a chance to practice at Dodger Stadium on Friday:

My first impression arriving at Dodger Stadium was just how cool this all is. We walked out and were able to finally see this iconic building. This is so cool. The rink looks so small in this massive stadium, and everybody is so excited to come out and play a hockey game here. The ice looks so tiny in this cavernous building. The roller rink, the volleyball court, the palm trees in the background, 70-degree weather; everything makes this game unbelievable.

This is a game that has been played in these big-market northern cities; we are going be the first one in a warm climate in Southern California, where hockey is booming and people are truly excited. People are genuinely excited all over North America about this game and we get to play in it.

Bonino back outside with Ducks in Stadium Series

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

LOS ANGELES -- Four years ago, Nick Bonino played in the NCAA version of the NHL Winter Classic. Bonino helped Boston University pull out a 3-2 win against Boston College at Fenway Park.

It was the first outdoor game between BU and BC, and it was played in a light snowfall and a wind chill that made it feel like 12 degrees.

Now a center for the Anaheim Ducks, Bonino gets to play in another iconic baseball stadium on the other coast in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series opener at Dodger Stadium on Saturday, against the Los Angeles Kings (9:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CBC, RDS2).

"Being a [Boston Red] Sox fan, you get to play in Fenway Park," Bonino said Friday. "That's a dream come true. And you're on the opposite side of the country playing in one of the biggest cities in the world in an outdoor game. I'm soaking it all in. It was pretty cool to get out there with the guys and get out there with the families. Today was a great memory, as I'm sure tomorrow will be."

Ducks' Selanne savors Stadium Series experience

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

Teemu Selanne
Right Wing - ANA
GOALS: 7 | ASST: 10 | PTS: 17
SOG: 77 | +/-: 1
LOS ANGELES -- One of the more endearing sites of practice Friday for the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series opener at Dodger Stadium was 43-year-old Teemu Selanne bringing his daughter, Veera, out on the ice.

Selanne also had sons Eemil, Eetu and Leevi on hand for the family skate portion of the practice, and it wasn't really surprising that Teemu was the last off the ice at 8 p.m. PT.

"Obviously, it's so much fun to bring our own families to skate after our practice," said Selanne, still in all his hockey gear while leaning on the visitors dugout. "They're also going to remember this for a long time. They like it. They thought it was really cool and exciting."

Devils face Stadium Series goalie decision

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Cory Schneider
Goalie - NJD
RECORD: 9-9-7
GAA: 1.84 | SVP: 0.928
NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer wouldn't mind a few snowflakes in the forecast for his team's showdown with the New York Rangers on Sunday at Yankee Stadium in the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series (12:30 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC).

The game is the fourth between the Metropolitan Division rivals this season, with the Devils having won the previous three by a combined 11-5.

In addition to having visions of snowflakes falling on the infield ice at Yankee Stadium, the third-year Devils coach also has a big decision to make Saturday when his team practices at the iconic ballpark.

Who will be his starting goalie against the Rangers, Martin Brodeur or Cory Schneider?

DeBoer acknowledged after a 2-1 victory against the Washington Capitals on Friday that each has played well this season.

"It's a tough decision and that's a credit to both these players" DeBoer said. "I will make a decision first thing [Saturday]. But it just shows the type of professionals both guys are; they've handled this so well all year long."

Kings' Mitchell feels lucky to get to play outdoors

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LOS ANGELES -- Willie Mitchell's knee injury was so mystifying that he didn't know if he'd ever play again, so an event like the one he'll take part in Saturday night at Dodger Stadium couldn't even be called a goal, a dream, or really anything at all for the Los Angeles Kings defenseman.

"I was out 17-18 months and I had no idea, to be honest with you," Mitchell told NHL.com.

Jake Muzzin - Special to NHL.com

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jake Muzzin is a veteran of outdoor hockey, except he played on ponds in his hometown of Woodstock, Ontario. Muzzin's first NHL outdoor game will be nothing like what he's used to.

Muzzin will be blogging for NHL.com through the event.

LOS ANGELES -- A hockey practice on the ice at Dodger Stadium. Seriously, who would have ever thought they would be doing something like that?

Sharks' Marleau, Thornton agree on extensions

Friday, 01.24.2014 / 6:20 PM / News

Eric Gilmore - NHL.com Correspondent

SAN JOSE -- San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson has negotiated hundreds of NHL contracts during his front-office career, but he experienced a first when he began discussing new deals for forwards Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau.

"Both players said one of the priorities was that they'd really only come back if the other one was coming back," Wilson said Friday. "So that created a unique dynamic in the negotiations because it was two individual negotiations but it was contingent to them knowing that we're a better team with both of them instead of just one.

"All I can say is, that tells you the respect between the two players. They both said, 'Well, we'll do this, but the other guy's coming back, correct?' That was really an important part of this process."

Mason transforms Flyers on zombie mask

Friday, 01.24.2014 / 2:44 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

VOORHEES, N.J. -- Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux has been asked a lot of things in his hockey career.

"Can I paint you in zombie form on my goalie mask?" had to be a new one.

Giroux obviously said yes, as did teammates Scott Hartnell, Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek. All have been transformed into zombies for Steve Mason's new goalie mask, which he unveiled for teammates and fans Friday during practice.

The new mask follows Mason's initial helmet this season, which featured zombie versions of famous American historical figures, including George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Betsy Ross.

This time Mason went a bit more contemporary.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
