Providence goalie Gillies ready for WJC exposure

Monday, 12.23.2013 / 3:00 AM / On Campus

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Providence College goalie Jon Gillies is a huge fan of Johnny Manziel.

Not so much because the Texas A&M quarterback seems to dominate the college football headlines on a regular basis, but because he marches to the beat of his own drum.

"He's a one-man show; things that go on in his life off the field don't affect him on the field and I respect that," Gillies said. "He just exudes confidence. From what I've read he seems to be an amazing guy."

The 6-foot-5, 215-pound Gillies also is a pretty amazing guy. Not to mention a one-man show on occasion for the Friars. He's big, confident, energetic and passionate about getting better. Those traits have transformed him into one of college hockey's most respected goalies in a short period of time.

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The mood was somber, the room quiet.

Nobody was talking when the media gained access to the Minnesota Wild's dressing room late Sunday night. The players were unstrapping their equipment and loading it into their hockey bags. Trainers were coming by to help with skate guards and really anything that would speed up the process to get the Wild out of Madison Square Garden and on the bus to Philadelphia as quickly as possible.

As for answers to questions about how the Wild are going to get out of their prolonged scoring slump, mouths were moving and words were being said, but nobody could really come up with any solutions.


Stars' Gonchar out with concussion-like symptoms

Sunday, 12.22.2013 / 5:04 PM / News


Dallas Stars defenseman Sergei Gonchar will miss the next seven-to-10 days with concussion-like symptoms, general manager Jim Nill told Stars beat reporters Sunday.

Nill is hoping Gonchar will be back after the Christmas break and said there won't be a call-up from the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.

Gonchar left the Stars' game Saturday against the San Jose Sharks in the second period with what was initially called an upper-body injury.

"He's all right," Stars coach Lindy Ruff told the Dallas Morning News after the game. "He took a puck to the face and isn't feeling well, so he has to stay out for a while probably."

Nashville Predators rookie defenseman Seth Jones appears to be OK one day after he was hit in the face by a puck. Jones was at practice Sunday and told The Tennessean that his visor absorbed part of the blow.

"Thanks everyone for all the support," Jones tweeted Sunday. "It was a scary injury, but I'm all good and back on the ice now."

Jones was injured Saturday with eight seconds remaining in the first period and did not return to the game. He was hit on the left side of his face by a deflected slap shot from Montreal Canadiens defenseman Andrei Markov.

St. Louis Blues left wing Alexander Steen is day-to-day with an upper-body injury and will miss the game against the Calgary Flames on Monday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Forward Dmitrij Jaskin was recalled from the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League on Sunday. A second-round pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, Jaskin has nine goals and 17 points in 20 games with the Wolves.


Jagr ties Messier for seventh place on NHL goals list

Sunday, 12.22.2013 / 11:44 AM / News


When the New Jersey Devils signed Jaromir Jagr to a one-year contract this past summer, they weren't sure what they were going to receive out of the 41-year-old likely Hall of Fame player.

All Jagr has done is lead the Devils in goals, assists and points, playing vintage hockey while surpassing all expectations. On Saturday in Washington DC, Jagr added another milestone to his rapidly growing list of platitudes.

Jagr moved into a tie for seventh place on the NHL all-time goals list with No. 694 of his career. He tied Mark Messier when he scored 5:28 into the third period against the Washington Capitals, his 13th goal this season and his second in three games after going eight without scoring. Andy Greenesent a pass from behind the net during a Devils power play, and Jagr converted from the left of goalie Braden Holtby.


Stars' Nichushkin adapting to life on and off the ice

Sunday, 12.22.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Steve Hunt - NHL.com Correspondent

FRISCO, Texas -- Valeri Nichushkin is only 18 years old and just 33 games into his NHL career, but the early returns for the Dallas Stars on the No. 10 pick in the 2013 NHL Draft are clearly encouraging.

Nichushkin, who has been skating on Dallas' top line alongside captain Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin for the past 16 games, is averaging a point per game in his last 10 contests (4-6-10) and has a plus-9 rating during that time.

He currently ranks second among rookies in assists with 12 and third in plus-minus at with a plus-12 rating.

His recent offensive surge illustrates just how quickly Nichushkin has adjusted to the NHL game. That higher comfort level on and off the ice has allowed him to better utilize his blend of speed, size and skating ability to benefit both himself and the Stars.


Daily Primer Dec. 22: Rangers continue homestand

Sunday, 12.22.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider


A franchise-record nine-game homestand seemingly was a golden opportunity for the New York Rangers to make a playoff push in the Eastern Conference. Instead, the Rangers find themselves fighting just to stay in the mix.

The Rangers fell to 1-4-2 on the homestand with a 5-3 loss to the New York Islanders on Friday and have two games to go before they go back on the road to visit the Washington Capitals on Dec. 27. The eighth game on the homestand takes place Sunday night, when the Rangers host the Minnesota Wild (7:30 p.m. ET, FS-N, MSG).

Here's a closer look at the action Sunday:


Alums from 2005 WJC should dominate in Sochi

Sunday, 12.22.2013 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

The events are separated by nearly 10 years and more than 5,500 miles, but the similarities between Grand Forks, N.D., and Sochi, Russia, are many.

The off-the-beaten-path sports cities will be remembered for giving fans some of the best hockey ever played.

The list of players who made Grand Forks, site of the 2005 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship, one of the most memorable tournaments in history should be among the participants who will make the 2014 Sochi Olympics arguably the most competitive Olympic hockey tournament since NHL players officially began competition in the Games in 1998.

Lay the rosters side-by-side. Look at the players from the nine nations that sent a team to Grand Forks in late December 2004 and the ones that will make the journey to Russia in February 2014.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
