On the 'D'-fence: Fowler finally rewarding owners

Wednesday, 12.11.2013 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Brian Metzer - NHL.com Correspondent

The Anaheim Ducks are cruising along with the second-best record in the Western Conference. Their 21-7-5 mark is actually good for second in the overall NHL standings as well. That is great news for the franchise, but their success has also paid huge dividends for fantasy owners.

Our Matt Cubeta took a look at their dynamic group of forwards in his "The Front Line" column on Tuesday and today we'll be talking a lot about one of their talented young defenseman who seems primed for a big step forward after a couple of down years: Cam Fowler.

Fowler burst onto the scene during the 2010-11 season after being selected with the 12th pick in the 2010 NHL Draft. He made the lineup out of camp and went on to put up 40 points (10 goals) over 76 games. His plus-minus was an unpalatable minus-25, but for the most part he was a must-own defenseman that season, putting up 123 shots on goal and 20 penalty minutes. He also notched three game-winning goals.

Center Leon Draisaitl, considered an A-rated prospect on NHL Central Scouting's players to watch list for the 2014 NHL Draft, is one of four returning players invited to the German National Junior Team selection camp that will be evaluated for participation in the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship in Malmo, Sweden, later this month.

In addition to Draisaitl, German coach Ernst Hofner will also have goalie Marvin Cupper of the Shawinigan Cataractes in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, and forwards Frederik Tiffels of the Fargo Force in the United States Hockey League and Dominik Kahun of the Sudbury Wolves in the Ontario Hockey League.

Draisaitl of the Prince Albert Raiders is one of five forwards from the Western Hockey League tagged with an A rating on NHL Central Scouting's players to watch list. He had two goals and a team-leading six points in six games at the 2013 WJC in Ufa, Russia.


Wild assign Dumba to Canada for World Juniors

Wednesday, 12.11.2013 / 11:17 AM / Prospects


Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba on Wednesday was assigned to the Canadian National Junior Team and will be eligible to participate in the 2014 World Junior Championship in Malmo, Sweden, later this month.

Dumba, who for the past two years was the final player cut from the National Junior Team roster, is looking forward to the opportunity. He has one goal and two points in 13 games for the Wild this season.

"It's been tough on me the last two times," Dumba told the Wild website. "Being the last cut last year, it hurt. It [stunk] not being able to represent my country last year, so I'm looking forward to the opportunity that they're giving me this year."


Teravainen has been 'king of the road' this season

Wednesday, 12.11.2013 / 11:00 AM / In the Pipeline

Risto Pakarinen - NHL.com Correspondent

There's a popular Finnish 1980s song about a Teuvo, "the king of the roads." That song is in active rotation in the Hartwall Areena in Helsinki, the home arena of Jokerit, the team of one Teuvo Teravainen.

Just his name makes him stand out a little. A Finnish derivate of Theodore, it was popular between the 1930s and 1950 when over 10,000 Finnish boys were named Teuvo, only to almost completely disappear from the map.

Tale of the Tape: Flyers visit Blackhawks

Wednesday, 12.11.2013 / 3:00 AM / Tale of the Tape

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The Chicago Blackhawks may have beaten the Philadelphia Flyers to win the Stanley Cup in 2010, but the Flyers have had the better of the Blackhawks during the regular season for the past 16 years. The teams will meet in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2). Philadelphia has won both regular-season games between the teams since the 2010 Cup Final and 15 of the past 17, beginning with a 3-2 victory at United Center on Dec. 12, 1997.


Daily Primer Dec. 11: Blackhawks set to host Flyers

Wednesday, 12.11.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider


The Philadelphia Flyers have done of an admirable job of climbing out of the huge hole they dug themselves at the start of the season, but they face a huge test in front of a nationally televised audience Wednesday night.

Philadelphia (13-14-3) will be in the Windy City to take on the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center (8 p.m., NBCSN, TSN2), where the defending Stanley Cup champions boast a 10-2-4 record. Chicago is returning home after a 6-2 road win against the Dallas Stars on Tuesday.

Here's a closer look at the action Wednesday:


Rivalry Night Faceoff: Couturier vs. Toews

Wednesday, 12.11.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

To help celebrate NBC Rivalry Night, NHL.com will look at a rivalry within the rivalry of the featured game on Wednesday nights. For this week, we are trying to determine how close Philadelphia Flyers center Sean Couturier is to the two-way standard set by Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews.

Going into the 2006 NHL Draft, Jonathan Toews already was considered a plus-defensive player, earning rankings of "very good" or "excellent" in all seven categories on NHL Central Scouting's checklist.

Since being taken by the Blackhawks with the third pick, he's emerged as the Blackhawks' franchise player, captain, two-time Stanley Cup champion and the 2013 Selke Trophy winner as the League's top defensive forward.

Toews also is dependable in the offensive zone and recognized as one of the best all-round players in the NHL.

Could the Philadelphia Flyers' Sean Couturier be traveling the same path?

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
