The latest edition features Nashville Predators coach Peter Laviolette:

COLUMBUS -- Peter Laviolette got to know the Eastern Conference during his 12 years working in the conference with the New York Islanders, Carolina Hurricanes and Philadelphia Flyers.

Kings place center Mike Richards on waivers

Monday, 01.26.2015 / 9:10 PM / News

Curtis Zupke - Correspondent

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Mike Richards' locker was cleaned out and already taken by right wing Jordan Nolan at the Los Angeles Kings' practice facility Monday. The space was literally about five feet from where Richards sat for his introductory press conference four years ago when he was traded to the Kings.

The quick removal might seem cold, but it was the only option left for Kings general manager Dean Lombardi, who put Richards on waivers. Lombardi could no longer justify paying the underperforming Richards, especially with the pending unrestricted free agency of right wing Justin Williams, center Jarret Stoll and defenseman Robyn Regehr.

"That's the thing we've got to work through," Lombardi said. "Mike, in his career, he's shown he can be a .330 hitter and get you 80 RBIs and be an All-Star player. So maybe at this stage, maybe it's not there. But I still think he's capable of being a .280 hitter and do a lot of those things that only he can do. Basically, right now he's batting .200. But I don't see any reason why he can't get back to that. He's got to do what he's got to do."

Other teams have until Tuesday morning to claim Richards. Otherwise, he will be sent to Manchester of the American Hockey League to work on his game.


Utica's Markstrom hopes for real chance with Canucks

Monday, 01.26.2015 / 8:22 PM / AHL Update

Joe Yerdon - Correspondent

UTICA, N.Y. -- The past 12 months for Utica Comets goalie Jacob Markstrom have been, to put it politely, tumultuous.

Markstrom was once a top prospect for the Florida Panthers and started 38 games for them over parts of three-and-a-half seasons. But on March 4, 2014, he was sent to the Vancouver Canucks as part of the trade that brought Roberto Luongo back to Florida.

"It came up as a shock," Markstrom said. "I didn't know I was going to be traded, but I got traded and I didn't know what to expect. It was kind of weird, you know, leaving all your friends, leaving what you know to go to your new place, but Vancouver and the whole organization, all the guys were unbelievable."

Wes Crosby - Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Sidney Crosby will return soon, Pittsburgh Penguins coach Mike Johnston said Monday.

Crosby missed the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game because of a lower-body injury sustained against the Montreal Canadiens on Jan. 10. Since that 2-1 win, Crosby has seven points (three goals), but he has been held scoreless in Pittsburgh's past two games, losses to the Philadelphia Flyers and Chicago Blackhawks.

Johnston said Crosby has to wait a certain number of days until he can return after receiving an injection. Crosby has reached that number of days, according to Johnston, and will be available to return sometime shortly after the Penguins play the Winnipeg Jets at Consol Energy Center on Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
