Daily Primer Dec. 31: Going out with a bang

Tuesday, 12.31.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The NHL is sending 2013 into the history books with a full day of hockey.

No fewer than 22 teams will say goodbye to the old year by taking the ice, beginning when the Pittsburgh Penguins and New Jersey Devils take the ice just after 1 p.m. ET at Prudential Center and ending just before midnight in the East when the final buzzers go off to end games between the Edmonton Oilers and Phoenix Coyotes and the Philadelphia Flyers and Calgary Flames.


Glendening settles for AHL outdoor game, not Winter Classic

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

DETROIT -- Luke Glendening went to plenty of football games while matriculating at the University of Michigan. He even played in the first hockey game there, The Big Chill at the Big House on Dec. 11, 2010.

Neither of those facts are the reason Glendening feels like he really knows Michigan Stadium on an intimate level. The reason he really knows the Big House is because of a fun little activity he called "running the stadium."


Five Questions: Berenson a proud host for Winter Classic

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Red Berenson feels like a proud host this week as the National Hockey League has brought its marquee regular-season event to his backyard.

The 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic will take place a block away from Yost Ice Arena, where Berenson, 74, has been a fixture for decades.

Berenson played his college hockey at the University of Michigan from 1960-62, garnering All-American honors in his junior and senior seasons. He returned to lead the program as coach in 1984 and has been in the same position ever since.

His teams have won two national championships, played in 11 Frozen Fours and competed in a record 22 straight NCAA tournaments from 1991-2012. Berenson has sent numerous players to the NHL and the graduation rate of his players has ranked near the top of the NCAA since 1984.

Former coach Maurice recalls fun of outdoor practice

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- There are two reasons why Paul Maurice will never forget the outdoor hockey practice he held as Toronto Maple Leafs coach in 2008.

The frigid conditions that featured wind whipping sideways and a temperature that Maurice said dropped to minus-25 degrees Celsius, and the sincere joy he saw on his players' faces as they practiced in front of kids who got out of school early to come to the refurbished Withrow Park Rink just east of downtown Toronto.

Maurice is talking about those memories now because he's in town to serve as an NHL Network analyst at the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic on Wednesday between the Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings (1 p.m. ET, NBC, CBC). It will be Maurice's first time attending a Winter Classic game.

"It is just brutal and after about 15 minutes I could see it in the players, they're starting to get worried because it's that cold," Maurice told NHL.com, recalling the outdoor practice nearly six years ago. "I said, 'Listen, this is what we'll do, we'll drop the puck and you guys scrimmage for five minutes and we'll get out of here.' Twenty minutes later they don't want to come off the ice. It went from being a freezing cold practice to a shinny game with a bunch of grown men acting as kids.


Jets sign Petan to entry-level contract

Monday, 12.30.2013 / 5:45 PM / News


Monday was a day to remember for Nicolas Petan.

Hours after scoring a pair of goals, including the game-winner when Canada defeated Slovakia 5-3 at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship, the Winnipeg Jets announced they agreed to terms with the 18-year-old on a three-year, two-way entry-level contract with an average annual value of $925,000.

Petan has played in 32 games with the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League this season, scoring 20 goals with 46 assists. His 66 points place him second in league scoring. The Delta, British Columbia, native has played 167 career WHL games, all with Portland, and has 80 goals and 222 points along with 95 penalty minutes.

A second-round pick (No. 43) of the Jets in the 2013 NHL Draft, Petan has three goals and one assist in three games for Canada at the World Juniors.


Avalanche's Parenteau out six weeks with knee injury

Monday, 12.30.2013 / 5:03 PM / News

Rick Sadowski  -  NHL.com Correspondent

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- The Colorado Avalanche will have to make do without right wing PA Parenteau for about six weeks. Parenteau sustained a second-degree MCL sprain in his left knee Sunday in the Avalanche's 2-1 overtime loss to the Winnipeg Jets.

"It's part of the season," Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said after practice Monday. "We've been pretty lucky, I think, so far. We haven't been hit too much by injuries. From my standpoint, I think we've been more lucky than anything else. It's part of a season and it give opportunities for others to show us what they have."

Parenteau was injured at 16:20 of the second period when he and Jets defenseman Jacob Trouba clipped skates at center ice. Parenteau twisted his knee while falling and needed help into the trainer's room.

Parenteau, 30, underwent an MRI on Monday morning and Dr. Andrew Parker, the team's orthopedic specialist, relayed the results to Roy. Parenteau, who had no goals and six assists in the past 11 games, has nine goals and 15 assists in 38 games this season.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
