Penguins goalie Vokoun to skate Wednesday

Tuesday, 01.21.2014 / 1:10 PM / News


The Pittsburgh Penguins announced goaltender Tomas Vokoun will skate on Wednesday.

Vokoun, who has not played this season due to blood clots in his leg, has been off blood thinners for a week. When his levels are normal he will be able to start taking shots, according to coach Dan Bylsma.

Vokoun was signed by the Penguins prior to the 2012-13 season and became their starting goaltender in the Stanley Cup Playoffs after Marc-Andre Fleury struggled through the first four games of an Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the New York Islanders.


The Front Line: Steen returns, Parise inches closer

Tuesday, 01.21.2014 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Matt Cubeta - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

When St. Louis Blues forward Alexander Steen went down with a concussion on Dec. 21, he had 24 goals, which ranked second in the NHL. His 38 points were ninth best. He had a plus-15 rating, 20 penalty minutes and 117 shots on goal.

At that time he was the ninth-ranked player in Yahoo fantasy leagues. He was considered the biggest surprise in fantasy pools and was having the breakout season the Blues needed. And if you were fortunate enough to have him on your team, odds are your team was finding success in the first three months of the fantasy season.

The concussion kept him out of action for 11 games, but he's healthy again and fantasy owners should have already activated him by now.

Steen returned to the lineup against the Anaheim Ducks on Saturday and despite finishing without a point, he skated on the top unit with usual linemates, David Backes and T.J. Oshie, and received nearly 21 minutes of ice time. In his second game Monday, Steen posted two assists, a plus-1, two penalty minutes and a season-high seven shots on goal.

Here's a closer look at the action Tuesday:


Diaz confident in Switzerland's Olympic chances

Tuesday, 01.21.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 Olympics

James Murphy - NHL.com Correspondent

MONTREAL -- Things have changed quite a bit for Switzerland's ice hockey program and Montreal Canadiens defenseman Raphael Diaz since he played for his native country at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, his first Olympic experience.

Since that time Diaz has become a full-time player in the NHL and Switzerland is not looked at as an easy win in international hockey tournaments.

"Yes, things have changed quite a bit," Diaz said after a recent Canadiens practice. "I'm in the NHL and my country has more NHLers now, and I really think Switzerland is recognized as a better team."

The 2010 Swiss Olympic team had four NHL players on its roster; at that time Diaz played for Swiss club EV Zug. But he, along with goalie Jonas Hiller and defensemen Mark Streit, Yannick Weber and Luca Sbisa helped put Switzerland on the hockey map in the round-robin portion of the Olympic tournament.


Five Questions: Collins energized for Stadium Series

Tuesday, 01.21.2014 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With ..." runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features National Hockey League Chief Operating Officer John Collins:

John Collins is most looking forward to experiencing the noise when the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks walk through the tunnel, up the dugout steps, into plain sight and up the walkways to take the ice Saturday at Dodger Stadium.

"That roar that happens makes it all worthwhile," Collins, the NHL's Chief Operating Officer, told NHL.com.

As the League motors into the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series portion of the 2013-14 regular season, Collins is confident in saying it has recovered from the lockout that wiped away a portion of the 2012-13 season.


Pens prospect Pouliot enjoying hectic junior season

Tuesday, 01.21.2014 / 3:00 AM / In the Pipeline

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER – After playing his third game in three nights, Portland Winterhawks defenseman Derrick Pouliot could hardly be blamed if he looked more like a Walking Dead extra than a top Pittsburgh Penguins prospect.

With a game-day ferry ride mixed in for good measure, it was also Pouliot's fourth game in five nights since flying back from Sweden following a disappointing performance at the IIHF World Junior Championship in which Pouliot and Team Canada failed to win a medal. Through these frantic few weeks, Pouliot was still able to demonstrate the skill and poise that has the Penguins very excited about their prized prospect.

Following that hectic schedule, Pouliot was looking forward to four days off to go home to Weyburn, Saskatchewan, where he would celebrate his 20th birthday with friends and family.


Red Wings' Howard injures knee in loss to Blues

Tuesday, 01.21.2014 / 12:11 AM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- The last thing the Detroit Red Wings needed was another injury to one of their key players, but that's exactly what happened Monday at Joe Louis Arena.

Starting goaltender Jimmy Howard left the game with a knee injury at 10:44 of the second period and didn't return in a 4-1 loss to the St. Louis Blues. After the game, Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said the injury is to the same knee that Howard sprained in December.

That injury sidelined Howard for eight games. Howard, who was named to the U.S. roster for the 2014 Sochi Olympics earlier this month, also dealt with a hand injury in October that cost him three games.


Rink at Dodger Stadium almost ready for use

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

LOS ANGELES -- The surface of the outdoor rink at Dodger Stadium almost has all the bells and whistles. In a few days, it should be ready for some referee whistles.

With all the other ice markings in place, the center-ice logo and other branding logos were about to be painted Monday night for the 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series game, the first regular season West Coast outdoor game in NHL history, on Saturday between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks.

Dan Craig, the NHL's Senior Director of Facilities Operations, also said his crew will build another quarter-inch of ice and then another quarter-inch to get to the required 1½ inches by Tuesday night.

Wednesday will be the first time the rink will be used, when the media game is held, and Craig said he's curious to see how the first run goes.

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.
