Draft hits and misses: Atlantic Division

Wednesday, 06.18.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

John Kreiser - NHL.com Managing Editor

If there's one lesson recent Stanley Cup winners have taught the teams trying to dethrone them, it's the value of building from within.

The core of championship teams continues to be players who are drafted and developed by that franchise.

But finding the right talent isn't easy. Every team has had its ups and downs since the draft began in 1963. Here's a look at the hits (and some of the misses) for the eight teams in the Atlantic Division on draft day:

Texas Stars win first Calder Cup with OT victory

Tuesday, 06.17.2014 / 10:16 PM / AHL Update

NHL.com

The Texas Stars won the Calder Cup for the first time in their five-year history when Patrik Nemeth scored 14:30 into overtime for a 4-3 victory against the St. John's IceCaps on Tuesday in Game 5 of the American Hockey League's championship series.

Nemeth, a second-round pick (No. 41) by the parent Dallas Stars in the 2010 NHL Draft, deked his way into the slot before firing a high wrist shot past IceCaps goaltender Michael Hutchinson for his first goal of the Calder Cup Playoffs.

The Stars, the AHL's top team during the regular season, won the final three games of the series on the road in overtime. Regular-season MVP and scoring champion Travis Morin captured the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy as the Most Valuable Player in the playoffs after finishing with a league-best 22 points in 21 playoff games. Morin led all scorers with seven points in the Calder Cup Finals, including three game-winning goals.

Sharks GM: Time has come to start rebuilding

Tuesday, 06.17.2014 / 7:16 PM / NHL Insider

Eric Gilmore - NHL.com Correspondent

SAN JOSE -- What San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson used to describe as a "reset-refresh" for his team has turned into an all-out rebuilding project, and he hammered home that point Tuesday in a session with the media before the upcoming NHL Draft.

Wilson announced that the Sharks have re-signed 26-year-old goaltender Alex Stalock to a two-year contract, preventing him from becoming an unrestricted free agent in a move that shows San Jose is committed to turning the team over to its younger players. Stalock will be given a chance to supplant Antti Niemi, 30, as the Sharks' No. 1 goaltender.

The Sharks have ruled out trading any of their young talent or high draft picks. Wilson has spread that message to his veterans, including forwards Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau, to San Jose's fans and to general managers throughout the NHL.

"I've had a lot of calls," Wilson said. "A lot of people at the GM meetings, they know where we're going. We now become a tomorrow team. So when you spell that out, it does create a response. Now a tomorrow team, is it one year, two years? Time will tell on how our young players handle the responsibility given to them but also making sure we don't give it to them too soon."

As Kings face free agency, Mitchell set to keep going

Tuesday, 06.17.2014 / 4:50 PM / NHL Insider

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Los Angeles Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell said he's had some informal talks with general manager Dean Lombardi about re-signing and he expects that to continue as the Kings move forward into their summer of celebration.

The Kings conducted physicals Tuesday before breaking up for the offseason following their second Stanley Cup championship in three seasons. Mitchell, like a lot of his teammates, was still recovering from the celebration festivities, but he said he expected to meet with Lombardi soon.

"I'm sure it will happen in the next little bit," Mitchell, 37, said. "We're kind of all doing the same things: exit medicals … a little bit of partying mixed in. Just a little bit. See how my [golf] swing is this afternoon. Really, if it's going to get done, it gets done in a short period of time. There's lots of time."
