MacKinnon: Drouin earned his top-prospect status

Tuesday, 09.09.2014 / 3:21 PM / NHL.com's Top 60 Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Nathan MacKinnon knows a little something about how to excel as a rookie in the NHL.

He did it in 2013-14 as a member of the Colorado Avalanche, leading all first-year players in points (63) and tying for first in goals (24) en route to winning the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie.

MacKinnon is pretty confident that Jonathan Drouin, his former linemate with the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, is ready to take a similar path with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2014-15.

Drouin was voted the No. 1 NHL prospect on NHL.com's Top 60 prospect ranking, released Tuesday.

"I don't see a lot of junior-hockey highlights now but I'm on Twitter and noticed he was tearing it up," MacKinnon said of Drouin. "He had some sick games and I watched the highlights online. I still try and follow the Mooseheads whenever I can."

Future Goals program uses hockey as teaching tool

Tuesday, 09.09.2014 / 2:37 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- As Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban made the rounds from student to student at Newark Science Park High School on Tuesday, he started thinking about how big of an impact education has had on his life and his family.

"My family has a very big educational background," Subban said. "My dad worked in the Toronto District School Board for over 30 years as a principal. My sisters are both teachers. My sister's husband is a teacher. Working with kids and the school board has been something my family has been doing for a long time."

Now Subban will get his chance to do the same through the Future Goals Digital Education Program, a joint initiative between the National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players' Association.

Henrik Lundqvist
Goalie - NYR
RECORD: 33-24-5
GAA: 2.36 | SVP: .920
New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist spent about two months in the spotlight during the run to the 2014 Stanley Cup Final. Training camp is more than a week away, but he was right back in the spotlight Monday.

After participating in the annual NHL Player Media Tour earlier in the day, Lundqvist was a guest on "Late Show with David Letterman" on CBS. The host started the segment by running off Lundqvist's accomplishments with the Rangers, highlighted by becoming the first goaltender in history to win five Game 7s in his career.

Lundqvist is the only goaltender to win at least 30 games in each of his first seven NHL seasons. He won the Vezina Trophy as the League's top goaltender in 2012 and is tops on the Rangers' list in wins (309) and shutouts (50). New York lost to the Los Angeles Kings in five games in the Cup Final in June.

"I could never … if I lived to be 1,000, [I] could never do what this guy does," Letterman said as he introduced Lundqvist to the audience. "Who can do what this guy does? I have nothing but endless admiration for him."

Eriksson leads fantasy injury bounce-back candidates

Pete Jensen - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Year after year, injuries alter the fantasy hockey landscape. It's tough for fantasy owners to anticipate them and even more difficult for your team to remain in contention when your players are affected by them.

But it's important to not lose sight of the past once the following season rolls around. Proven superstars, sleeper candidates and top prospects carry the pizzazz that attracts fantasy owners, but there are always players coming off injury-plagued seasons who are primed to bounce back.

There are plenty of recent examples of this trend. Andrei Markov of the Montreal Canadiens, who dealt with knee injuries over multiple seasons, regained form in 2012-13 to finish second in power-play points and tied for fourth in points among defensemen. Colorado Avalanche center Matt Duchene, who was limited to 58 games in 2011-12, has been nearly a point-per-game player since (113 points in past 118 regular-season games).

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday during the regular season and every other Tuesday in the offseason. 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 Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane:

Patrick Kane had no choice but to talk about what almost happened last season, about how close the Chicago Blackhawks were to reaching the Stanley Cup Final and, obviously, repeating as Stanley Cup champions.

As Kane was shuttled from conference room to conference room Monday, meeting with media outlets at the NHL's annual Player Media Tour, he was repeatedly asked about overcoming the loss to the Los Angeles Kings in overtime in Game 7 of the Western Conference Final.

"It stings just talking about it and getting a bunch of questions about it, that's for sure," Kane said in his interview with NHL.com. "But I think the biggest thing is you realize how good of a series it was, how entertaining it was for the fans to watch and how entertaining it was to be a part of.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
