In two of the past three Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Los Angeles Kings' Drew Doughty has been a near consensus choice as the best defenseman in the tournament.

In each of the past two Winter Olympics, Doughty has been a near consensus choice as one of the best defensemen in the tournament.

Doughty has evolved into one of the best players in the world at his position. What is missing from his dossier is a Norris Trophy, given annually to the top defenseman in the NHL as judged by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

He is's preseason choice for the award in the 2014-15 season.

Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau had the pleasure of watching another Olympian wear a Ducks jersey Friday during practice at The Rinks in Anaheim, Calif.

Knight met with Boudreau and Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf prior to practice. When she got on the ice she was seen chatting with center Nate Thompson and assistant coach Trent Yawney before participating in keep-away and shooting drills.


Lightning forward Drouin favorite for Calder Trophy

A new season marks the possible spawning of a new NHL superstar.

Last season Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon was a near-unanimous choice for the Calder Memorial Trophy as NHL rookie of the year after he led all first-year players in points, goals, assists, power-play goals, game-winning goals and shots.

MacKinnon became the second No. 1 pick in eight years to win the Calder; Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane did it in 2007-08.

Many feel MacKinnon's linemate with the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Jonathan Drouin, is a strong candidate to capture the Calder in 2014-15. So does MacKinnon.

TORONTO -- Red Kelly is rarely stuck for words.

But as the 87-year-old Hockey Hall of Fame member glanced over his shoulder at his image as a young defenseman with the Detroit Red Wings on an enlarged replica of a stamp being released by Canada Post, he was speechless for a few seconds.

"Wow," Kelly finally said, "I dreamed about playing hockey, but I never dreamed I'd be on a postage stamp."

Kelly, along with fellow Hall of Fame members Pierre Pilote, Harry Howell, Doug Harvey and the king of NHL defensemen, Bobby Orr, have been immortalized on stamps that celebrate the NHL's Original Six. It is part of the lead up to the 100th anniversary of the NHL in 2017 and is the result of a partnership between Canada Post and the Hockey Hall of Fame.


Excitement building for NHL Stadium Series game

Eric Gilmore - Correspondent

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The sun was shining brightly Thursday on a 90-degree day at 68,500-seat Levi's Stadium when NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman took the podium and delivered what to some was surprising news.

The 2015 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings on Feb. 21 is almost sold out, 143 days before the puck will drop.

"The game will be a sellout because it's already close to a sellout," Commissioner Bettman said during the game's kickoff press conference.

Commissioner Bettman said he "never had any doubt" the game would sell out, even at such a large stadium, the new home of the San Francisco 49ers.

"We know that there are great, passionate Sharks fans, displaced NHL fans from around North America that live in the Bay Area, and we figured you combine the Sharks with the interest in this state and it was an enormous proposition," Commissioner Bettman said.


Coyotes confirm talks with potential investor

Thursday, 10.02.2014 / 8:48 PM / News

The Arizona Coyotes' ownership confirmed Thursday that it has talked with "an unsolicited potential investor who is interested in joining the partnership" but that no deal has been reached.

In a statement, IceArizona said the talks "should be viewed as an incredibly positive development and is due to the successful first year of IceArizona's ownership. This is all about the long-term stability and viability of the franchise in Arizona. By no means are any members of the current IceArizona group departing the ownership. While there has been no confirmation of any transaction, this is something that the current ownership group is exploring."

The New York Post reported Thursday that Andrew Barroway, who tried to buy the New York Islanders earlier this year, is working on a deal to buy 51 percent of the team.

IceArizona has owned the Coyotes since purchasing the franchise from the NHL last year.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
