Elmer Ferguson winner Allen first true hockey insider

Monday, 11.17.2014 / 9:22 AM / Hall of Fame

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

TORONTO -- Mario Lemieux does not spend a lot of time speaking to the media, opting to stay in the background as owner of the Pittsburgh Penguins despite being one of the most influential figures for hockey in Pittsburgh and one of the greatest players to ever put on skates.

He is known to confide in a relatively small group of people, so breaking a story involving Lemieux is a little different than with most professional athletes.

Kevin Allen will receive the Elmer Ferguson Memorial Award for excellence in hockey journalism Monday, and his plaque is now in the Great Hall at the Hockey Hall of Fame because he has been an important voice for hockey in the United States during his nearly three decades at USA Today. Allen's resume is filled with highlights and awards and attendance at the most important hockey games of the past 25 years.

Lightning's Callahan set for first trip back to New York

Monday, 11.17.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Corey Long - NHL.com Correspondent

TAMPA -- Eight months have passed since right wing Ryan Callahan played a game at Madison Square Garden, but Monday night the former New York Rangers captain is set to return as a member of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

For seven-plus seasons, The Garden was home for Callahan. The Rochester, N.Y., native was a fourth-round draft pick (No. 127) for the Rangers in 2004 and made his debut in Nov. 2006. He was announced as New York's captain before the 2011-12 season.

But he was traded to the Lightning in March as part of a package for Martin St. Louis after a contract extension with the Rangers could not be worked out. Although Callahan said he wasn't surprised about the trade, he admits it was a difficult thing to digest.

Voice of Blackhawks puts game before HHOF honor

Sunday, 11.16.2014 / 7:10 PM / Hall of Fame

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- Pat Foley could've found a substitute to stand in Sunday in the television broadcast booth at United Center.

Somebody else could've done the play-by-play during the Chicago Blackhawks game against the Dallas Stars so Foley could rest up for Monday, when he'll be in Toronto to receive the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award at the Hockey Hall of Fame NHL Media Awards Luncheon.

That's just not Foley's style. Asked if he considered taking the day off, Foley recoiled a bit.

"No, I've got a game to do," said Foley, who's in his 32nd season of broadcasting Blackhawks games. "There was no chance I was going to miss this [game]. Now, [Monday] I think I've got about a 4:45 wake-up. I'm supposed to give a speech at noon or something. I'm going to be a dishrag, so we'll see how that goes, but there was no chance I was going to miss this game."

Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.

— Jaromir Jagr after making his Panthers debut in a win against the Sabres on Saturday
