Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Kale Clague, a top prospect for the 2016 NHL Draft, was among the 20 players invited to play for Team WHL against Team Russia in the 2015 CHL Canada-Russia Series.

Team WHL will play Team Russia in the first two games of the series, Nov. 9 in Kelowna, British Columbia, and Nov. 10 in Kamloops, British Columbia. The games are used by Hockey Canada as an evaluation tool for picking the team that will play for Canada at the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Clague, a 5-foot-11, 177-pound left-shot defender who plays for the Brandon Wheat Kings, earned an A rating from NHL Central Scouting in its September players to watch list. In nine games this season he has five assists and a plus-8 rating. He had four goals and nine assists in 20 games last season. He also had one goal in four games to help Canada win the gold medal at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup in August.

Every Monday, NHL.com staff writer Sean McCullen identifies potential waiver-wire pickups, and points out lineup moves and schedule impacts for fantasy hockey.

A disappointing start to the 2015-16 season for some of the top players in the NHL has fantasy owners contemplating moves that can get their team back on track in Week 2.

Blue Jackets seek first win; Sharks visit Rangers

Monday, 10.19.2015 / 3:00 AM / Weekly Primer

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Nobody could have possibly envisioned the Columbus Blue Jackets opening the 2015-16 season with six consecutive regulation losses, but that is the cold, harsh reality staring right in their faces after two weeks.

The Blue Jackets will attempt to put an end to their improbable losing streak when they host the New York Islanders at Nationwide Arena on Tuesday (7 p.m. ET; FS-O, MSG+).

New York (3-1-1) is already seven points ahead of Columbus, which was expected to be in the Metropolitan Division race until the very end following the acquisition of forward Brandon Saad and a 15-1-1 finish to last season.

"I don't know what we're waiting for," Blue Jackets forward Scott Hartnell said Saturday after the latest loss, a 4-1 defeat at the Chicago Blackhawks. "I don't know if we're looking for someone else to do it, if we're easing ourselves into games to wait for something bad to happen. That's what I sense when we get playing. We're just waiting instead of doing and doing the right things."

Sharks goalie Jones making most of shot at No. 1 job

Monday, 10.19.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Marc Crawford remembers the confidence and calmness exhibited by a young Martin Jones. He remembers never seeing the goalie out of breath and rarely out of position. He vividly recalls his post-save recovery being quick, cat-like and effortless.

But mostly, Crawford, like anybody who followed Jones growing up in North Vancouver, remembers the winning. All that winning, from atom to pee-wee to bantam to midget to the Western Hockey League to the American Hockey League, and now to the NHL.

"Martin doesn't know anything but winning," said Crawford, the former NHL coach who watched Jones grow up playing with his son, Dylan, in Vancouver's North Shore Winter Club. "All this kid does is win."

Jones is winning with the San Jose Sharks now, and they're thrilled.

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis, who hasn't played this season because of a lower-body injury practiced on Sunday for the first time since sustaining the injury a few weeks ago.

"I'm right on the schedule of the progress of this injury," Dupuis told the Penguis website. "Today was a good step. If I went out and didn't feel good it would be a step back. The fact that I stayed on and went through practice, did a normal practice and had a big smile on my face and had fun, I think it's the right way."

The Penguins announced on Oct. 8, Dupuis would miss 4-to-5 weeks.
