Broadhurst brothers share same NHL goal

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 1:38 PM / AHL Update

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

Nearly two decades ago, Alex Broadhurst and his older brother, Terry, were just beginning to discover a shared love for the game of hockey.

"We had an unfinished basement, so it was all cement," Alex said. "We'd just put on our roller blades and go 1-on-1 for hours."

Fast forward to the present day, where the duo has moved to a much bigger stage. They're teammates on the Rockford IceHogs, the American Hockey League affiliate for the Chicago Blackhawks.

Daily Primer March 28: Rangers head West

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

The New York Rangers boosted their hopes of finishing second in the Metropolitan Division earlier this week with home victories against the Phoenix Coyotes and Philadelphia Flyers. They'll get a different kind of test when they begin a four-game road trip Friday night with a game against the Calgary Flames (9 p.m. ET).

The Rangers (41-29-4) are three points in front of the Flyers as they begin their trip, which also includes games against the Edmonton Oilers, Vancouver Canucks and Colorado Avalanche. They've actually played much better on the road (23-13-0) than at home (18-16-4), and they are 3-2-0 in their past five visits to Scotiabank Saddledome.

Top 2014 NHL Draft prospects offer self-evaluations

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

TORONTO -- Prior to the start of every season, NHL Central Scouting already has evaluated hundreds of the top prospects available in the upcoming NHL draft.

In addition to putting together meticulous reports that detail a player's good and bad points, and then sharing them with their colleagues, it's also required that each prospect file some paperwork to Central Scouting.

So long before Samuel Bennett of the Kingston Frontenacs, Leon Draisaitl of the Prince Albert Raiders, Sam Reinhart of the Kootenay Ice and Aaron Ekblad of the Barrie Colts begin a new season, they've already completed the NHL Central Scouting questionnaire.

One of the more intriguing parts of the questionnaire happens to be the section that requires each prospect to admit their strongest asset, weakest area and the NHL player they most resemble. The self-assessments, for the most part, are pretty accurate. They also provide the scouts with a gauge as to what type of player each prospect expects to become.

Here's a summary of what each of the top five North American prospects, top North American goalie and top European skater provided on their questionnaire, followed by an evaluation of that response by NHL Central Scouting.

Players are listed in the order they were ranked in Central Scouting's midterm release in January.

Johansen enjoying breakout season with Blue Jackets

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Craig Merz - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS -- There was a plenty of buzz surrounding Columbus Blue Jackets center Ryan Johansen following a 3-2 victory March 20 against the Montreal Canadiens.

Most people wanted to talk about the third-year player's first NHL fight when he squared off against Max Pacioretty early in the game and how Johansen would respond after wading into unknown territory.

The answer came with 3:01 left in regulation when he showed the skill and savvy that made him the No. 4 pick by the Blue Jackets in the 2010 NHL Draft.

Super 16: Chara should be Norris favorite

Friday, 03.28.2014 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara has not had the help of teammate Dennis Seidenberg since he was lost to a serious knee injury in the first game after the December holiday break.

The Bruins, who have built a reputation as an elite goal-prevention club, wobbled for a few games as they adjusted to not having one of the NHL's best defensive defensemen. Now they are back to their stifling ways and back in the hunt for the Presidents' Trophy.

While Chara may not possess the traditional offensive numbers of some of his closest competitors, the mountainous Boston defenseman should be the frontrunner for the Norris Trophy.

Alain Poupart - NHL.com Correspondent

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Goalie Roberto Luongo left the Florida Panthers' game against the Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday night after the first period with an upper-body injury and did not return.

Luongo finished out the period but was not on the bench for the start of the second. He was replaced by Dan Ellis. The Panthers said Luongo was removed as a precautionary measure. The Hurricanes won the game 3-0.

Red Wings' Datsyuk still hopes to return this season

Thursday, 03.27.2014 / 3:03 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- The good news for the Detroit Red Wings is center Pavel Datsyuk has started skating on his own and can now do off-ice work in the weight room.

The bad news is his left knee, which has troubled him most of the season, probably won't be 100 percent again this season. Datsyuk didn't do any on-ice work before or during the Red Wings' morning skate Thursday at Joe Louis Arena, but did put in some hard work off the ice.

He also skated on his own a couple times this week, starting Monday. It's all part of the regimen that was set up for him on NHL Trade Deadline day, when Detroit shut him down from all hockey-related activities for a couple weeks to see if the problem might clear up faster.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.

— Brian Elliott to Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch on being the Blues' No. 1 goalie
