Top 11 players at Traverse City Prospects Tournament

Wednesday, 09.16.2015 / 9:12 AM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- The Columbus Blue Jackets became the second team to win a fourth championship in the 17-year history of the Traverse City Prospects Tournament following a 5-2 victory against the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday at Centre Ice Arena.

The Blue Jackets, also champions in 2005, 2006 and 2014, equaled the St. Louis Blues (1999, 2000, 2001, 2004). They received effective play from their top line of Kerby Rychel (2013 NHL Draft, No. 19), TJ Tynan (2011, No. 66) and Oliver Bjorkstrand (2013, No. 89), and solid goaltending from Joonas Korpisalo (2012, No. 62).

Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen is pleased his organization has many solid prospects waiting in the wings, including Bjorkstrand, Rychel, Sonny Milano (2014, No. 16), Josh Anderson (2012, No. 95), Dillon Heatherington (2013, No. 50) and Zach Werenski (2015, No. 8), who returns to the University of Michigan in 2015-16.

Fantasy top 30 goaltenders: Preseason rankings

Wednesday, 09.16.2015 / 3:00 AM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

David Satriano - NHL.com Staff Writer

As part of NHL.com's preseason fantasy hockey draft coverage, NHL.com will preview each of the three positions this week, with Pete Jensen on forwards, Brian Metzer on defensemen and David Satriano on goalies. These positional outlooks will include the writer's individual standard-league rankings, offseason reaction and all the strategy and advice you'll need on draft day.


OVERVIEW

It's no surprise that Carey Price is the No. 1 goalie in fantasy hockey. Price won the goaltending Triple Crown last season, leading the NHL in wins (44), goals-against average (1.96) and save percentage (.933) on his way to the Vezina and Hart trophies.

Price, who had nine shutouts, allowed one goal or fewer in 29 starts and two goals or fewer in 44 starts (two-thirds of his total starts). He had a .950 save percentage or better in 30 starts. The list can go on and on, but the bottom line is he should be drafted in the mid-to-late first round shortly after forwards Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Steven Stamkos and John Tavares. He was the only goalie in the top 10 in Yahoo's season-ending rankings (No. 2, behind Ovechkin) and was one of three goalies (Devan Dubnyk, Minnesota Wild, No. 15; Braden Holtby, Washington Capitals, No. 16) to be ranked in the top 20.

Canucks goalie Miller is healthy, ready for season

Tuesday, 09.15.2015 / 11:05 PM / 2015-2016 Season Preview

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- It took Ryan Miller five months to completely recover from the knee injury that cost him most of the final two months of the 2014-15 season, but that doesn't mean the Vancouver Canucks should worry about the health of their 35-year-old goaltender.

Watching Miller moving around his crease during a training session with former NHL goalie Alex Auld on Tuesday, there were no signs of the delays that plagued his comeback late last season.

"There was a certain amount of inflammation and it would give feedback it was sore and a little slow, and then all of a sudden, about mid-July, it was just kind of like, 'OK, we're done with that and we're good,'" Miller told NHL.com.

McDavid likely to play for Oilers rookies in exhibition

Tuesday, 09.15.2015 / 10:48 PM / News

NHL.com

Forward Connor McDavid is expected to be in the lineup when the Edmonton Oilers rookies play the University of Alberta in an exhibition on Wednesday.

The game will be played at Rexall Place (9 p.m. ET), home of the Oilers. The previous 24 games in the series were played at Clare Drake Arena, the university's 2,700-seat rink.

"I know a lot about the Bears and you hear a lot more about them lately, them being one of the top programs in the country," McDavid told the Edmonton Sun. "They have a good team for a reason. It'll be very good, I've played CIS teams before and with the World Junior team, we played a CIS all-star team. It's always a good game; they're good players, it'll be good."

Maple Leafs' Phaneuf wants to be 'part of the solution'

Tuesday, 09.15.2015 / 5:11 PM / 2015-2016 Season Preview

Mike Brophy - NHL.com Correspondent

TORONTO -- Dion Phaneuf admits he heard the rumors.

With the Toronto Maple Leafs undergoing a change in direction and top scorer Phil Kessel having been traded to the Pittsburgh Penguins for prospects and two draft picks, there was speculation Phaneuf might be the next to go.

It did not happen. Rather, new coach Mike Babcock said he welcomes the opportunity to work with the Maple Leafs captain. That is a relief for Phaneuf, who at age 30 is set to play his 11th season in the NHL.

"I never wanted to leave here," the defenseman said at the NHL's Player Media Tour in early September. "I signed here for a reason; I love being a part of the Toronto Maple Leafs. I love being a Toronto Maple Leaf. I love the city and I want to be a part of the solution. That's why I'm here."

Penguins' Letang determined to play full season

Tuesday, 09.15.2015 / 4:51 PM / 2015-2016 Season Preview

NHL.com

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang is focused on a specific number heading into this season, one that has nothing to do with goals or assists.

"My only goal is to play 82 games," Letang told the Penguins website. "That's my main goal. I just want to help the team all year long and not just part of it."

Letang tied his NHL career high with 11 goals last season and set a personal best with 54 points, but he missed the final seven games of the regular season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a concussion.

The 28-year-old missed 89 games in the three previous seasons because of assorted injuries and a stroke but reported feeling in top shape heading into this training camp.

"I was on the same program that I always do in the summer. No setbacks, nothing. I felt pretty good," Letang said.

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The NHL and adidas on Tuesday announced a seven-year partnership that will make adidas the official outfitter of on-ice uniforms and official supplier of licensed apparel and headwear for the League starting with the 2017-18 season.

Reebok, a brand owned by the adidas Group, is the NHL's current official outfitter.

In addition, the NHL, NHL Players' Association and adidas announced a partnership for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey that makes adidas the exclusive outfitter for authentic and replica jerseys for the eight-team tournament that will take place in Toronto from Sept. 17-Oct. 1, 2016.

"As important as the excitement for the season is, having a great partner like adidas is what we're all about," NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said. "Teaming up with adidas continues our strategy of aligning with major partners who not only share our vision for growing the game and the League, but also putting innovation at the forefront of what we do for our players and our fans.

"This is a big deal for us and we know it is for [adidas]."

Flyers doing their homework, learning ways of Hakstol

Tuesday, 09.15.2015 / 4:00 PM / 2015-2016 Season Preview

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

PINE HILL, N.J. -- Forward Wayne Simmonds knew before a lot of others that the Philadelphia Flyers had named Dave Hakstol as their new coach.

The Flyers hired the longtime University of North Dakota coach to replace Craig Berube on May 18.

"He's friends with some of my agents, so they gave me a heads-up," Simmonds told NHL.com prior to teeing off at Trump National Golf Club at the Flyers Celebrity Golf Invitational on Tuesday. "I got to talk to Hakstol and talked to my agents about him. So I knew a little bit about him."

What did Simmonds learn?

"Stern but fair," he said of Hakstol. "He expects a lot, he demands a lot from his players. At the same time, he seems like a very fair person."

Buffalo, Pittsburgh, St. Louis finalists for 2018 WJC

Tuesday, 09.15.2015 / 2:53 PM / News

NHL.com

Buffalo, Pittsburgh and St. Louis were announced by USA Hockey on Tuesday as the finalists to host the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship.

A final decision on the host is expected to come by the end of the year after officials from USA Hockey visit each of the three cities. Chicago and Tampa Bay, in the original group of candidates to host the tournament, did not make the cut.

"We look forward to this next step in our selection process," said Mike Bertsch, assistant executive director of marketing, communications and events for USA Hockey. "It was extremely difficult to get down to three. All five of the cities we were considering made a compelling case."
