McDavid hype continuing to grow at Canada camp

Sunday, 12.15.2013 / 10:47 AM / 2014 World Junior Championship

Shawn P. Roarke - NHL.com Senior Managing Editor

TORONTO – Connor McDavid has been the talk of Canada's junior national team this week.

How much have people been talking about the precocious 16-year-old who is trying to bull his way onto a team, and into a tournament, traditionally dominated by 19-year-olds? On Friday, a reporter prefaced a question about McDavid to teammate Kerby Rychel by apologizing for asking the question.

"It's OK, he deserves it," Rychel said of the attention coming McDavid's way. "He's an exceptional hockey player. He deserves to be here. He's got tremendous skill. His speed is going to be a big factor on the big ice like this. He's a phenomenal hockey player and we are lucky to have him here now."

It appears McDavid will stay with Canada too, despite initial thoughts that his youth might hold him back. He is going to Europe when the national team departs Sunday for the World Junior Championship, but Canada still needs to cut two forwards and a defenseman. It does not appear that McDavid will be among those hearing bad news from coach Brent Sutter between now and Dec. 26, which is the date of Canada's opening game.

Sunday Long Read: Samoskevich honors Sandy Hook

Sunday, 12.15.2013 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

Preparing for one of the biggest games of her career, Melissa Samoskevich heard the news that will, in many ways, shape the rest of her life.

Samoskevich, 15 years old, was on a bus with her hockey teammates from the Shattuck-St. Mary's School varsity girls team on Dec. 14, 2012, settling in for the long bus ride from campus in Fairbault, Minn., to face a powerful Chicago Mission team, considered to be one of the best in the country.

The game for Shattuck would be a measuring stick against one of the toughest opponents on the schedule. The tough task ahead consumed the thoughts of Samoskevich as the bus ate up the miles toward the Windy City. When Samoskevich wasn't thinking about the game, and the role she hoped to play in it, she was thinking of an upcoming trip home to visit family during the holiday break.

But a phone call during that bus ride would send the sophomore's world off its axis. Samoskevich's mother, Patty, called that afternoon, the bearer of bad news about the family's hometown of Sandy Hook, Conn.

"My mom called me and [said] there was a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary," Samoskevich said. "Are you kidding? In Sandy Hook? I was dumbfounded. I remember getting on my laptop and putting the news on my laptop. When we finally got to the hotel, I found out how many lives were lost. I couldn't believe it."


Coyotes' Doan feeling better, but not sure when he'll return

Sunday, 12.15.2013 / 12:38 AM / News

Jerry Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Shane Doan doesn't know how he got sick or when he'll be able to play hockey again for the Phoenix Coyotes.

One thing he does know: He's feeling a whole lot better that he did a week ago.

An illness that began 11 days ago with a fever and body aches during a Western Canadian road trip landed Doan in a Phoenix hospital on Monday for a battery of tests that have done more to eliminate possibilities than produce a diagnosis. But Doan is beginning to respond to medication and was able to take in the Coyotes 3-1 loss against the Carolina Hurricanes Saturday in person.


Ducks' Fowler emerging as complete defenseman

Sunday, 12.15.2013 / 12:00 AM / NHL Insider

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- When defenseman Ben Lovejoy was traded to the Anaheim Ducks in February, he "knew nothing" about this Cam Fowler kid.

Lovejoy had spent his entire career in the Eastern Conference, with the Pittsburgh Penguins, and he couldn't get to know his new teammate right away because Fowler was out with a concussion. But then a scouting meeting brought Fowler to life.

"We were doing video of the other team, and I remember seeing Cam on the point and I'm like, 'Who is this guy?" Lovejoy said with a laugh. " 'Why isn't he playing?' "

Lovejoy saw what many first see with Fowler: the skating ability and the natural offensive flair. Paired with Fowler since the end of last season, Lovejoy has seen the evolution in Fowler's game as he's developed the defensive side and taken the next step in his career.
