RECORD: 33-24-5
GAA: 2.36 | SVP: .920
New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist spent about two months in the spotlight during the run to the 2014 Stanley Cup Final. Training camp is more than a week away, but he was right back in the spotlight Monday.

After participating in the annual NHL Player Media Tour earlier in the day, Lundqvist was a guest on "Late Show with David Letterman" on CBS. The host started the segment by running off Lundqvist's accomplishments with the Rangers, highlighted by becoming the first goaltender in history to win five Game 7s in his career.

Lundqvist is the only goaltender to win at least 30 games in each of his first seven NHL seasons. He won the Vezina Trophy as the League's top goaltender in 2012 and is tops on the Rangers' list in wins (309) and shutouts (50). New York lost to the Los Angeles Kings in five games in the Cup Final in June.

"I could never … if I lived to be 1,000, [I] could never do what this guy does," Letterman said as he introduced Lundqvist to the audience. "Who can do what this guy does? I have nothing but endless admiration for him."

Eriksson leads fantasy injury bounce-back candidates

Pete Jensen - Fantasy Insider

Year after year, injuries alter the fantasy hockey landscape. It's tough for fantasy owners to anticipate them and even more difficult for your team to remain in contention when your players are affected by them.

But it's important to not lose sight of the past once the following season rolls around. Proven superstars, sleeper candidates and top prospects carry the pizzazz that attracts fantasy owners, but there are always players coming off injury-plagued seasons who are primed to bounce back.

There are plenty of recent examples of this trend. Andrei Markov of the Montreal Canadiens, who dealt with knee injuries over multiple seasons, regained form in 2012-13 to finish second in power-play points and tied for fourth in points among defensemen. Colorado Avalanche center Matt Duchene, who was limited to 58 games in 2011-12, has been nearly a point-per-game player since (113 points in past 118 regular-season games).

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday during the regular season and every other Tuesday in the offseason. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane:

Patrick Kane had no choice but to talk about what almost happened last season, about how close the Chicago Blackhawks were to reaching the Stanley Cup Final and, obviously, repeating as Stanley Cup champions.

As Kane was shuttled from conference room to conference room Monday, meeting with media outlets at the NHL's annual Player Media Tour, he was repeatedly asked about overcoming the loss to the Los Angeles Kings in overtime in Game 7 of the Western Conference Final.

"It stings just talking about it and getting a bunch of questions about it, that's for sure," Kane said in his interview with "But I think the biggest thing is you realize how good of a series it was, how entertaining it was for the fans to watch and how entertaining it was to be a part of.

Tuesday, 09.09.2014 / 3:00 AM /'s Top 60 Prospects

In order to find out who could be the next stars in the NHL, we unveil's Top 60 Prospect Rankings.

The list is a composite drawn from three staff writers, Adam Kimelman, Mike Morreale and Corey Masisak, as well as three anonymous NHL scouts.

The only rule the voters were given was that players have to enter the 2014-15 season with Calder Trophy eligibility.

First-place votes on the list were valued at 60 points, second-place votes at 59 points, and it continued down through the No. 60 player on each list receiving one point.

The Stanley Cup fortunes for the Anaheim Ducks and Washington Capitals might not be the same right now, but they have to like where their futures are headed.

The two franchises each had four players in's Top 60 prospect rankings, the most of any team.

The Capitals had two in the top 15, led by center Evgeny Kuznetsov, who was No. 3 in voting by three staff writers and three NHL scouts. After four seasons of watching and waiting, the 22-year-old showed he was worth the patience with three goals and six assists in 17 late-season games.


Coyotes excited about Max Domi's potential

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

There's no denying Arizona Coyotes prospect Max Domi possesses the offensive tools required to one day play an integral role in the lineup, but his adjustment to reach that status remains in question.

Of all the players on's Top 60 prospect rankings, Domi was the most divisive. The 19-year-old was ranked as high as No. 12 and as low as No. 53 on the six lists submitted; the other four lists had him No. 16, No. 30, No. 32 and No. 42. Some evaluators point to Domi's 5-foot-9, 197-pound frame as a hindrance to his development. Others feel it's just maturity. Then there's some who believe he's ready to be an NHL regular.

"I think Max has a tremendous upside as an offensive player and has shown an ability to dominate at the junior level, but maybe there's some prejudice because of his size," Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said. "I think it's just maturity to be honest; there are times when he tries too hard. Whether or not he'll star in the League this November or two Novembers from now, I can't tell you."


Led by Sweden, European players continue to emerge

Tuesday, 09.09.2014 / 3:00 AM /'s Top 60 Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

The percentage of European-born and -trained players selected at the 2014 NHL Draft was the highest it has been in more than a decade.

Leading the way was a heavy dose of Swedish standouts, representing 27 of the 66 European players picked in seven rounds at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. The European contingent made up 31.4 percent of the players chosen; the remainder hailed from Canada or the United States.

The number of Europeans who played at least one NHL game last season was 25.1 percent, which has been roughly the average during the past five seasons; the highest percentage of Europeans playing in the NHL in a given season during the past 14 seasons was in 2001-02 (33.6 percent).


Three prospects worthy of top-60 consideration

Tuesday, 09.09.2014 / 3:00 AM /'s Top 60 Prospects

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

The pipeline of talent flowing into the NHL likely never has been as rich as it is right now. So when narrowing a list of top prospects to 60 players, it's going to leave some future talent on the outside.

Three players who could have been on the list are Buffalo Sabres forward Hudson Fasching, New York Islanders defenseman Ryan Pulock and Nashville Predators goaltender Juuse Saros.

Fasching was drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the fourth round (No. 118) of the 2013 NHL Draft and traded to the Sabres in March. A 6-foot-2, 213-pound power forward, he had 14 goals and 30 points as a freshman at the University of Minnesota last season and two goals and four points in five games for the United States at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship. He'll likely have a prominent spot on the team that plays for the U.S. at the 2015 WJC.
