Robby Stanley - Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced Friday the 2016 NHL All-Star weekend will be hosted by the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena, on Jan. 30 and Jan. 31, 2016.

The 2016 All-Star Game will be the first the Nashville has hosted. The Predators hosted the 2003 NHL Draft, an event that was well-received throughout the League. The NHL is confident that an All-Star Game in Nashville will garner a similar reception.

"There is no doubt that putting our game center stage here in Nashville is going to be great for the NHL and for Nashville," Bettman said.

The Predators are looking forward to putting Bridgestone Arena and the city of Nashville on display for the world to see. The Predators are trying to set the bar high for the fans to make the 2016 NHL All-Star weekend an experience they never will forget.

BUFFALO -- When the Florida Panthers visit the Buffalo Sabres on Friday, the highlight of the matchup involves the top two players selected in the 2014 NHL Draft.

Panthers defenseman Aaron Ekblad, selected first, and Sabres forward Sam Reinhart, selected second, will face off against each other for the first time in their pro careers. While they are good friends and were roommates while trying out for Canada at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup, they're focused on what lies ahead in their careers.

"I come into every single game with just an attitude that I want to come out, be positive, work hard and be enthusiastic about the game every shift," Ekblad said. "And that's kind of the mentality I have going into every game. I don't really think about who I'm playing against. You can't cheat against everyone; you have to play in this League because everyone is so good."

The top two picks in the draft haven't played against each other this early in a season since Oct. 11, 1997, when top pick Joe Thornton, then of the Boston Bruins, faced second pick and future teammate Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks.

Penguins' Dupuis skates, could play Saturday

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis skated on his own Friday, several hours after being removed from the ice on a stretcher during the Penguins game Thursday against the Dallas Stars.

Dupuis spent about 20 minutes on the ice Friday, shooting pucks while wearing a helmet. He was injured with 6:58 remaining in the second period of Pittsburgh's 3-2 loss Thursday. He was knocked down in front of the Dallas net by Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski, and while on the ice he was hit in the head by a Kris Letang shot.

He was treated by doctors on the ice and then placed on a stretcher. As he was leaving the ice he gave a thumbs-up to the crowd.

Penguins coach Mike Johnston said Dupuis had sustained some numbness in his arm but that the feeling returned after the game. He said Friday that Dupuis had been cleared to play by the medical staff and that they were performing precautionary tests on the ice.

"He looked fine this morning," Johnston said. "He did skate on a little bit on his own … [The medical staff] wanted to see him out there on the ice, get his heart rate up a little bit as well. So he got the shot on the back of the neck, and I think when Letang was shooting there that he took a little bit off of the shot because he saw Pascal go down.

"But all signs are real positive this morning."


Capitals defense prospect Carrick has bright future

Kinsey Janke - Special to

While Connor Carrick was waiting to hear his name called at the 2012 NHL Draft, his younger brother, Hunter, was sitting beside him, listening to hundreds of names he didn't recognize.

Joining in with the spirited crowd in Pittsburgh, Hunter began playfully booing each team that was called, eliciting a warning from his older brother that he'd better not boo when a team took him.

Five rounds later, Carrick was shaking hands with George McPhee, then the general manager of the Washington Capitals, and letting his new team in on a secret.

"I ratted my brother out," Carrick said. "I let them know, 'Hey, this kid was booing your staff.' He was as red as a goal light."

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils forward Martin Havlat is day-to-day with lacerations on his face stemming from a collision with a referee in the Devils' game Thursday against the Washington Capitals, the Devils said. Havlat did not sustain any structural damage.

Havlat had cuts on his nose and above his mouth after he went face-first into referee Darcy Burchell's elbow late in the second period of the Devils' 6-2 loss against the Capitals. The incident happened after he was pushed toward the end boards by Washington forward Jason Chimera.

Devils coach Peter DeBoer said Havlat's status for New Jersey's home-opener Saturday against the San Jose Sharks would be determined Saturday morning.

Islanders, Hedman among burning fantasy questions

Matt Cubeta - Fantasy Insider

It's been 10 days since the season began. Ten. Don't start panicking if your fantasy team isn't in first place as you expected them to be. Don't go dropping San Jose Sharks center Logan Couture because he has one point in four games. And no, New York Islanders sensation Brock Nelson isn't going to lead the NHL in points.

These are a couple samples of the many questions or concerns that have been raised to me on Twitter regarding fantasy hockey since the season started 10 days ago. It's a long season. Have some patience and give your team a little breathing room.

With that said, there have been storylines galore to start this season. Here's a look at five of the biggest questions in fantasy hockey right now.

1. What's the deal with Boychuk and Nelson?

The Islanders are off to a great start, and to no surprise John Tavares has been at the center of a lot of that success. But on the other hand, Nelson and newcomer Johnny Boychuk have been extremely pleasant surprises to fantasy owners to this point. Boychuk is currently the No. 4 overall fantasy player. He's second among defensemen with six points, he has a plus-5 rating and his five power-play points are tied for the lead among d-men. Boychuk has never had more than 23 points in any single season, so expecting him to keep at this pace is absurd. However, he is receiving a career-best 3:00 of power-play ice time per game on a unit that includes Tavares, so there's a chance he could post 30-40 points and carry solid fantasy value. As for Nelson, 23, he's been anchoring the team's second line and has four goals and seven points in four games. His ownership has soared up to 46 percent, but again, expecting him to continue to put up these kind of gaudy numbers is likely unrealistic. Nelson has four goals on five shots! Nelson is capable of a 20-goal, 50-point season, but both he and Boychuk make ideal sell-high candidates for fantasy owners right now.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
