Maple Leafs' Shanahan: Onus on players to step up

Friday, 01.09.2015 / 1:30 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Without technically issuing an ultimatum, Toronto Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan essentially said Friday that it's time for the players to show management what they're made of or big changes will be coming.

Shanahan said he spoke to the team Friday morning at Air Canada Centre to deliver that same message.

"I felt it was a good time to remind them what expectations are, try to galvanize the group," Shanahan said. "We're not at the end of the season, we're at the midpoint of the season; they're still in the hunt here. How they're going to be defined is really up to them. I also wanted to make it very clear to them that we're watching, we're on it. They're not getting by us. They're not escaping us. We're not going to be a group that is afraid to act if we feel we can make ourselves better."

Flames prospect Poirier having all-star season in AHL

Friday, 01.09.2015 / 12:16 PM / AHL Update

Kinsey Janke - Special to NHL.com

As far as forward Emile Poirier was concerned, the 2013 NHL Draft at the Prudential Center in New Jersey was just a day where he may or may not have had a chance to become a draft pick of a NHL team.

Though he'd had a successful major junior career, and NHL Central Scouting had him consistently rising in their top-40 projections that year, Poirier simply didn't expect it.

"I was just thinking I was going there with all my family and my friends and it was just going to be a good weekend to enjoy," he said. "And then I end up going that high and so I was really happy; it ended up a good weekend."

Byfuglien as D-man helps Jets overcome injuries

Friday, 01.09.2015 / 10:00 AM / NHL Insider

Patrick Williams - NHL.com Correspondent

WINNIPEG -- The injuries that threatened to spoil the Winnipeg Jets' 2014-15 season have instead brought a few revelations, lessons and wins along the way.

"You always get better in your most adverse times," Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice said.

The Jets have prospered in the six-week span when defensemen Zach Bogosian, Grant Clitsome, Toby Enstrom, Mark Stuart and Jacob Trouba each sustained a long-term injury.

Enstrom, the first Winnipeg defenseman to miss significant time, is not expected to return until late January. Since he missed his first game because of a lower-body injury Nov. 25, the Jets are 10-5-4, a mark that was even more impressive before the recent 1-4-0 slide the Jets are on after a 4-1 loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday.

NHL MOURNS THE PASSING OF J.P. PARISE

The NHL family, along with the rest of the hockey world, mourns the passing of longtime forward J.P. Parise, the father of current Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise.

Parise, 73, played the majority of his 14-season NHL career with the Minnesota North Stars (1967-75 and 1978-79) and New York Islanders (1974-78), totaling 238-356—594 in 890 regular-season games.

After his playing career was over, Parise served as coach and hockey director at the prestigious Shattuck-St. Mary's school in Faribault, Minn., where he mentored his sons Zach and Jordan, along with the likes of Pittsburgh Penguins forward Sidney Crosby and Chicago Blackhawks forward Jonathan Toews.

Super 16: Panthers' Ekblad having season for the ages

Friday, 01.09.2015 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Florida Panthers have been amassing young talent for several years, with a rather random Southeast Division title mixed in among four forgettable seasons.

Their misfortune in 2013-14 led to the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, and it might finally be time to say the Panthers are done picking high in the draft because of Aaron Ekblad. Not only has Ekblad held his own as an 18-year-old defenseman in the NHL, he's thrived and been a key reason why Florida has shrugged aside some early-season offensive woes and looks primed for a run at a Stanley Cup Playoff berth.

Ekblad could be in the midst of a historic season for a defenseman of his age. Very few defensemen stick in the NHL at 18, and even fewer play most of their rookie season before celebrating a 19th birthday.

Red Wings place Franzen on injured reserve

Thursday, 01.08.2015 / 8:33 PM / News

The Detroit Red Wings today recalled winger Teemu Pulkkinen from the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins and placed Johan Franzen on injured reserve.

Pulkkinen, 23, sits atop the AHL leaderboard with 20 goals in 33 games and is second in the league with 39 points (20-19-39). The Vantaa, Finland, native is currently on an eight-game goal scoring streak for Grand Rapids, which ties the franchise record, and has tallied nine goals and 13 points in that span. Last season, Pulkkinen paced Grand Rapids with 59 points (31-28-59) in 71 games en route to becoming the Griffins all-time leader in goals scored by a rookie. Originally drafted by Detroit in the fourth round (111th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Pulkkinen made his NHL debut last season and suited up in three games with the Red Wings. Prior to turning pro, the 5-foot-10, 198-lb., winger played four seasons with Jokerit of Finland’s SM-Liiga, totaling 128 points (49-79-128) in 185 games.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.

— Capitals forward Jay Beagle on scoring in their Game 3 victory against the Rangers on Monday
