Team Sweden roster projection for World Cup

Thursday, 09.10.2015 / 3:00 AM / World Cup of Hockey 2016

Janne Bengtsson - Correspondent

Team Sweden will enter the World Cup of Hockey with a new coach, Rikard Gronborg. But with 10 years of experience as a national junior team coach on different levels, Gronborg has a relationship with many of the young Swedes playing in the NHL.

Some of them won't make the 2016 team; Jonas Brodin (Minnesota Wild), Elias Lindholm (Carolina Hurricanes), Hampus Lindholm (Anaheim Ducks) and Jakob Silfverberg (Anaheim Ducks), to name a few. Veterans Johnny Oduya (Dallas Stars) and Mikael Backlund (Calgary Flames) also likely are on the outside.

Gronborg will be helped by an advisory board that includes three of the best Swedish players of all time: Nicklas Lidstrom, Mats Sundin and Daniel Alfredsson, who combined to play 4,102 NHL games.

Tournaments could be next step to NHL for prospects

There's a strong chance a candidate for the 2016 Calder Trophy as the NHL rookie of the year will be among the many top prospects participating in various rookie tournaments throughout the League this week.

The rookie tournaments are becoming a staple for many teams prior to the start of training camp each season.

The oldest and largest is the eight-team Traverse City Prospect Tournament in Traverse City, Mich., which will be held Sept. 11-15. Now in its 17th year, the tournament features prospects from the host Detroit Red Wings, along with the Chicago Blackhawks, Dallas Stars, Columbus Blue Jackets, Minnesota Wild, St. Louis Blues, New York Rangers and Carolina Hurricanes.

Hammond won't call Senators camp 'competition'

Wednesday, 09.09.2015 / 11:57 PM / 2015-2016 Season Preview

Andrew Hammond said he is not looking at training camp as a competition with Craig Anderson to be the No. 1 goalie for the Ottawa Senators.

"It's not something I'm going to label as [a competition]," Hammond told the Ottawa Sun on Tuesday. "I'm just going to approach the season to be the best goalie that I can be and I want to play as many games as I can. … However many that is, I don't know, but to say there's a competition or anything like that, I wouldn't say that."

Hammond signed a three-year, $4.05 million contract May 20. He was 20-1-2 with a 1.79 goals-against average and .941 save percentage after he was called up from the American Hockey League in February following injuries to Anderson and Robin Lehner (traded to the Buffalo Sabres on June 26).

Lightning's Johnson not 100 percent yet: report

Wednesday, 09.09.2015 / 11:35 PM / News

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Tyler Johnson said Wednesday his injured right wrist is not completely healed and he is unsure if he will miss any time during training camp.

"It's progressing; I don't know if I would say that it's 100 percent, but it's getting there," Johnson told The Tampa Tribune. "It feels better every day, so it's one of those things now that it just keeps getting strength and it feels better."

Johnson wore a brace on the wrist that was fractured in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Chicago Blackhawks in June. The injury did not require surgery, and he went without the brace in mid-August.

Kings' Doughty likes Team Canada, Ducks' Perry

TORONTO -- Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty thinks Team Canada is going to win the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

Seeing as he's Canadian, that's hardly a surprise.

But what might be a bit more surprising is that American forward James van Riemsdyk agrees with Doughty.

Speaking at a light-hearted Q&A session over the lunch hour in Maple Leaf Square just prior to the press conference Wednesday at Air Canada Centre to announce the details of the World Cup of Hockey to be held next year, the Toronto Maple Leafs forward lacked some ammunition to counter Doughty's prediction.

"Well, they won the last Olympics and the last World Championships," van Riemsdyk told moderator Daren Millard of Sportsnet, "so I can't really disagree too much with that one."

Kopitar: 'Still plenty of time' to re-sign with Kings

Wednesday, 09.09.2015 / 6:58 PM / News

Anze Kopitar said he is confident he will re-sign with the Los Angeles Kings even though negotiations are slow.

"We're maybe not as close as we wanted to be at this point, but I'm also not worried," Kopitar told USA Today this week. "I've said it all along: If it happens before the actual season starts, it would be really nice. But if it doesn't, no alarms will go off. There's still plenty of time."

Kopitar is entering the final year of his contract and could become an unrestricted free agent after this season.

Team North America could use youth to advantage

Wednesday, 09.09.2015 / 5:54 PM / World Cup of Hockey 2016

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

TORONTO -- The scariest team in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey is the one that is probably the least likely to win the tournament.

Team North America is a new concept in international hockey, grouping the best players 23 years old and younger from Canada and the United States against the best hockey nations in the world.

Peter Chiarelli of the Edmonton Oilers and Stan Bowman of the Chicago Blackhawks were named general managers of Team North America on Wednesday, and Chiarelli immediately labeled it as the underdog, putting its hopes of winning the tournament at less than 50 percent.

But if there is one team no player wants to lose to, it is Team North America.

"As the older guys in the League, there's no way you want to lose to the young bucks," 25-year-old Canadian defenseman Drew Doughty said Wednesday. "The League's all about being a veteran and having experience. So there's no way you'd want to lose to them."

Team Europe's task is melding multinational group

Wednesday, 09.09.2015 / 5:50 PM / World Cup of Hockey 2016

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

TORONTO -- The question that stumped the audience came from a Canadian wondering out loud about a team that a year from now will feature European players from as many as 10 nations for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

"Whose anthem do they play if they win the tournament?" Steven Stamkos said when discussing Team Europe, one of eight teams in the tournament but one of two that won't be representing a single nation. "They've gotta think about that one."

Even NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHLPA Executive Director Donald Fehr admitted it was an interesting question posed by the Canadian forward and captain of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Team Europe will be comprised of 23 players who can come from every European country except Russia, Finland, Sweden and Czech Republic, the four nations that already have a team scheduled to compete in the World Cup next year.

Wednesday, 09.09.2015 / 5:15 PM / News

Bernier, 30, tied his NHL high with 16 goals last season with the New Jersey Devils. He had 32 points in 67 games.
