Corey Perry scored his League-leading 10th goal of the season and assisted on Nate Thompson’s overtime winner to lift the Anaheim Ducks to a 2-1 win against the Dallas Stars. Dallas forward Antoine Roussel forced the extra period with his tying goal at 14:33 of the third period. It was the first game between the clubs since Game 6 in their Western Conference First Round in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, when the Ducks overcame a two-goal deficit in the final minutes of regulation before winning in overtime to eliminate the Stars.

* Perry (10-4--14) had his fourth multiple-point game of the season to move within one point of the League points lead, behind Dallas’ Tyler Seguin (7-8—15), Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby (7-8—15) and Philadelphia’s Jakub Voracek (3-12—15).

Jablonski ready for 'Night to Believe' with Wild

Jack Jablonski is determined to turn a tragic event in his life into a reason to believe in miracles.

It was almost three years ago, in December 2011, when the then-sophomore was hit from behind while playing hockey for Benilde-St. Margaret's High School against Wayzata High during a game at a holiday tournament in St. Louis Park, Minn.

The check pushed him straight up against the boards and left Jablonski motionless on the ice. Following a 2 1/2-hour operation five days later, it was determined he had sustained a severed spinal cord in the neck. He was paralyzed from the chest down, and doctors felt at the time that it would take a miracle for Jablonski to recover full use of his arms and legs.

Flyers' Laughton impressive early in Lehigh Valley

Kinsey Janke - Special to

Scott Laughton has been a first-round NHL draft pick, debuted in the NHL at 18 years old, and left a lasting impression on many of the sport's biggest decision makers.

But it's not his age that sets him apart anymore. In a league full of younger players looking to reach the NHL, it's the poise Laughton, the 20th pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, has shown on the ice in tough situations that is helping differentiate him from his peers.

Beginning his first pro season with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, American Hockey League affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, Laughton, now 20, has made an early statement.

"He makes a lot of plays that generate a lot of space for himself," Phantoms right wing Andrew Gordon said. "You'll think the defense has him cornered but he'll be able to open himself up and find six feet of space to get that next play made. That's a sign of maturity in his game, his ability not to panic and to make something out of nothing."

Paquette has skated in six career NHL games, registering one assist and five penalty minutes. He also appeared in all four of the Lightning's 2014 postseason games, recording a pair of assists to go along with 16 penalty minutes.

Friday, 10.31.2014 / 2:31 PM / News

The Winnipeg Jets announced they have reassigned forward Patrice Cormier to the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League.

Cormier, 24, has played in four games this season with the St. John's IceCaps collecting two goals and five penalty minutes. He did not appear in any games with the Jets since being recalled on Oct. 25. Cormier has compiled five points (1G, 4A) in 49 career NHL games with Winnipeg and the Atlanta Thrashers. The Moncton, NB native has collected 77 points (38G, 39A) and 261 penalty minutes in 167 AHL games with St. John's and the Chicago Wolves. He was originally drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the second round, 54th overall, in the 2008 NHL Draft.


Sabres forward Reinhart returned to junior hockey

BUFFALO -- Sam Reinhart's time with the Buffalo Sabres this season has ended.

The Sabres returned the 6-foot-1, 185-pound center, the second pick of the 2014 NHL Draft, to his junior team, the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League, on Friday.

"The minutes he got here, the situations he played in here, suggested to me it was time to get back," Sabres general manager Tim Murray said.

The Sabres could play Reinhart in nine games before deciding whether or not to keep him beyond his 10th game and start the clock on his three-year, entry-level contract or return him to junior hockey. Reinhart played his ninth game against the Boston Bruins on Thursday; the Sabres' next game is Saturday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

"He's not going to learn a whole lot there on the ice, I don't think," Murray said. "I told him I know he can go back there [Kootenay] and be a 120-point guy in a full season playing three-quarter speed, but that's not what we want him to go back there and do. We want him to get stronger and he's going to have to find a way to … find a way to slip out on his own to get to the gym and get stronger."

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
