Fantasy top 100 forwards: Panthers' Jagr defying age

Tuesday, 10.20.2015 / 12:35 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Pete Jensen - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Every Tuesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey insider Pete Jensen provides in-depth forward analysis. From updated weekly top 100 rankings to trending players and more, Jensen is your go-to guy for fantasy forward advice all season long.


In a fast-paced, physical sport like hockey where most superstars are in their mid-20s, you have to marvel at any player over 40 years old who can hold his ground on the same playing field.

Jaromir Jagr isn't just holding his ground though. The 43-year-old is performing at an elite level, and it's far from an early-season fluke. He's anchoring the Florida Panthers' top line and first power-play unit with seven points (four goals, three assists), two power-play points, a plus-2 and 12 shots on goal in his first five games of 2015-16. That rate of point production (1.4 per game) is greater than his career average (1.2). Jagr has 1,809 points in 1,555 NHL games, tops among active players and fourth in League history.

Per Elias Sports Bureau, no player in League history has produced 70-plus points in a season at age 43 or older. At this point, no one can put that potential achievement past Jagr, who will turn 44 on Feb. 15 and is the oldest player in the NHL by more than four years.

Senators' MacArthur, Methot out with concussions

Tuesday, 10.20.2015 / 11:34 AM / News

Ottawa Senators forward Clarke MacArthur and defenseman Marc Methot have been out of the lineup because of concussions, general manager Bryan Murray said Tuesday.

MacArthur hasn't played since leaving in the second period of a 7-3 win against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Oct. 14.

"We're going to take our time with him," Murray said in comments tweeted by the Senators.

Methot last played Oct. 15 against the Pittsburgh Penguins and could return to the lineup as early as Saturday against the Arizona Coyotes, Murray told The Ottawa Citizen.

Kevin Weekes builds the ideal NHL goaltender

Tuesday, 10.20.2015 / 10:00 AM / Game Savers

Kevin Weekes - NHL Network Analyst

NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes, in conjunction with the new Canada Post goaltender stamp series, provides his insight into the position he played for 11 seasons in the League.

This week, Weekes discusses what the ideal NHL goalie would look like.

There have been hundreds of goalies to play in the NHL. I was fortunate to play against a lot of guys that I idolized, with tons of guys that I admired and respect, and also see it through the unique perspective of a longtime NHL goalie and now the lead analyst on NHL Network.

People always ask me who the best goalie is of all time. My immediate answer would be Martin Brodeur or Dominik Hasek. But I'm a creative guy so I like to get creative.

That being said, this would be my ultimate goalie:

AHL Notebook: Kings' affiliate begins Reign in Ontario

Tuesday, 10.20.2015 / 9:48 AM / AHL Update

Patrick Williams - NHL.com Correspondent

The Ontario Reign completed a cross-country move this summer, and they brought a Calder Cup pedigree with them.

Playing as the Manchester Monarchs last season, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings won the Calder Cup before relocating to California. The move from New Hampshire put the Reign less than an hour from Staples Center, making for much easier player recalls and regular access for Kings management to keep an eye on its AHL prospects.

The move west has already started to pay off for the Los Angeles organization logistically.

"We've had a lot of communication with the Kings," Ontario coach Michael Stothers said. "It's a lot easier for [management] to get in and just even see a couple of practices. We have [Kings assistant general manager] Rob Blake coming in, [vice president of hockey operations and director of player personnel] Mike Futa coming in, as well as our developmental [staff]."

Ontario is off to a 3-0-0-0 start and has allowed one goal. Imprinting the Kings' identity on AHL prospects remains a key organization point of emphasis.

Twenty years later, Travis Roy still making impact

Tuesday, 10.20.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Travis Roy had three goals for himself growing up in Augusta, Maine.

He wanted to play Division I college hockey, he wanted to play in the NHL and he wanted to represent the United States at the Olympics. It was a common wish for any young hockey player from New England.

Eleven seconds into his first shift for Boston University, on Oct. 20, 1995, skating on a line with future NHL players Chris Drury and Mike Grier, Roy's life changed forever.

While attempting to check a player on the University of North Dakota in the right-wing corner, Roy went headfirst into the boards and fell to the ice. The impact shattered his fourth and fifth vertebrae, leaving him a quadriplegic.

Roy, who turned 40 years old on April 17, has been in a wheelchair ever since. Tuesday marks 20 years since that injury.

McDavid, Eichel already have had dazzling moments

Now that Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid and Buffalo Sabres center Jack Eichel each have scored their first NHL goal, don't expect the pressure that comes with being the first two players picked in the 2015 NHL Draft to subside anytime soon.

But there has been some sense of relief that the two projected generational talents have cleared that hurdle early.

Eichel got his first, scoring Oct. 8 in the Sabres' season-opener. He took a pass from Marcus Foligno low in the left circle and ripped a high shot into the short-side corner with 10:49 left in the third period of a 3-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators. The call made by Sabres television broadcaster Rick Jeanneret was as exhilarating as the goal itself.

Five Questions: Panthers' Campbell thinking win now

Tuesday, 10.20.2015 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

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

The latest edition features Florida Panthers defenseman Brian Campbell:

Florida Panthers defenseman Brian Campbell has reached the point in his career where he asks himself one pertinent question.

"How many years do I have left in this League?" Campbell said, rhetorically speaking.

The answer is a bit daunting for a 36-year-old who has played in 925 games, including 299 consecutive games since joining the Panthers prior to the 2011-12 season.

"I don't know," Campbell said.

That's why Campbell has one thing in mind this season.

RAANTA POSTS SHUTOUT IN RANGERS DEBUT

Antti Raanta denied all 22 shots he faced to win his debut with the New York Rangers and pick up his fourth career shutout in a 4-0 victory against the San Jose Sharks at Madison Square Garden.

* According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Raanta became the fourth goaltender in Rangers history to earn a shutout in his first start with the team. The others: Hal Winkler (Nov. 16, 1926 vs. MTL Maroons), John Roach (Nov. 15, 1928 at DET) and Marcel Paille (Nov. 2, 1957 vs. BOS).

* Raanta is 15-0-3 with four shutouts in 20 career home games. Raanta, who began his NHL career with the Chicago Blackhawks in 2013-14, was 14-0-3 (1.59 GAA, .942 SV%, 3 SO) in 19 games at United Center. He was traded to the Rangers on June 27.

Blues eager for task against undefeated Canadiens

Monday, 10.19.2015 / 9:36 PM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- Players and coaches love to talk about measuring-stick games.

At this early stage of the 2015-16 season, you won't see a much bigger one.

The Montreal Canadiens host the St. Louis Blues at Bell Centre on Tuesday (7:30 p.m. ET, FS-MW, RDS, CITYM), a game featuring the NHL's top two teams in the overall standings, and in many statistical measures as well.

The Canadiens (6-0-0) are the only undefeated team remaining and the Blues (5-1-0) are right behind them in wins and points.

"They're a team that hasn't lost yet," Blues captain David Backes said Monday. "No one's found the kryptonite to put them away and find a way to steal points from them. But we've played pretty good hockey and it should be one heck of a matchup."

Lightning's Hedman hopes to play vs. Predators

Monday, 10.19.2015 / 2:52 PM / News

NHL.com

Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman, who has not played since sustaining an injury during a game Oct. 15 against the Dallas Stars, practiced Monday and said he was optimistic about returning to the lineup at the Nashville Predators on Tuesday.

Hedman was hurt late in the second period against the Stars when his head hit the boards after he was hit by Stars forward Jamie Benn. He did not play in the third period, and sat out the Lightning's 2-1 win against the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.

"I got through [Monday] without no limitations so we'll make the decision [Tuesday]," Hedman told the Lightning website. "Obviously when you get hurt you never want to miss any games. You always want to be out there and contribute. I've been through a lot in the past, so to limit this to [missing] one game would be good, but we'll see tomorrow."
