Eden Prairie's Snuggerud, Spinner travel same path

Thursday, 06.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

Their birth certificates and last names obviously say otherwise, but defenseman Luc Snuggerud and right wing Steven Spinner of Eden Prairie (Minn.) High School practically are brothers.

So much so that it wouldn't shock anyone if both were selected by the same team at the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on June 27-28.

Snuggerud and Spinner, who live 10 minutes apart in Eden Prairie, not only attended the same high school and were finalists for the state's prestigious Mr. Hockey Award, but each will attend the University of Nebraska-Omaha in the fall. They were drafted by the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the United States Hockey League in 2012 and their rights were packaged to the Omaha Lancers in a trade Feb. 3.

They were roommates at the 2014 NHL Scouting Combine in Toronto in May, but assured they wouldn't be sharing a room when they get to college.


Draft hits and misses: Pacific Division

Thursday, 06.19.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

John Kreiser - Columnist

The Los Angeles Kings proved again this season that good drafting is the way to success. The core of the Kings' second Stanley Cup-winning team in three seasons -- goaltender Jonathan Quick, defenseman Drew Doughty, No. 1 center Anze Kopitar and captain Dustin Brown -- were drafted and developed by the Kings.

Every team has had its ups and downs since the draft began in 1963. Here's a look at the hits (and some of the misses) for the seven teams in the Pacific Division:


Draft hits and misses: Central Division

With two Stanley Cup championships in the past five seasons, the Chicago Blackhawks are an excellent illustration of the value of solid drafting. The Blackhawks went from a down-and-out team to an elite franchise in large part because of their success at the draft table.

Every team has had its ups and downs since the NHL Draft began in 1963. Here's a look at the hits (and some of the misses) for the seven teams in the Central Division.


Best first-round pick: Jonathan Toews (2006) -- There is no area of the game in which Toews does not excel. He was 20 when he was named captain of the Blackhawks; at 26 he has seven 20-goal seasons, 440 points in 484 games, two Stanley Cup rings (and two Olympic gold medals), the Conn Smythe Trophy as MVP of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2010 and the Selke Trophy as the NHL's top defensive forward last season. He's a terror on faceoffs (57.2 percent this season), among the NHL's best at the shootout (34-for-68 in his career) and is in the mix when discussion turns to the best player in the game today.

The Philadelphia Flyers added Gord Murphy to their staff as an assistant coach Wednesday and announced John Paddock will not return next season.

Murphy, 47, will be entering his 12th season as an NHL assistant coach. He was most recently an assistant coach for the Florida Panthers from 2010-13. He entered the coaching ranks in 2002 with the Columbus Blue Jackets following his retirement as a player, and held that job until June 2010.

"I'm very excited and really looking forward to the opportunity and challenge of working with the Flyers organization and with Craig Berube and his staff," Murphy said. "I couldn't be more thrilled for this opportunity for myself and my family coming back to Philly.

"As a former player and now the last 11 years in my role as an assistant coach, I consider myself a good teacher with a good balance of experience. I really look forward to working with and mentoring the defensemen everyday by having them continue to improve and get the Flyers to where we all want to be."
