Stamkos: Contract talks with Lightning no distraction

TORONTO -- Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said Tuesday that speculation and questions about his contract status did not impact how he prepared for this season and he doesn't anticipate them being a distraction for him going into training camp and eventually the regular season.

Stamkos is entering the final season of a five-year, $37.5 million contract. He became eligible to sign an extension with the Lightning on July 1. He can become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

"It hasn't changed my approach to how hard I've worked this summer to get ready for camp," Stamkos said from the NHL's Player Media Tour. "Obviously, I knew I was going through this [the Player Media Tour] this week, and we sat down and had discussions about how I would be asked about it, so just be prepared. I'm comfortable if I have to talk about this stuff. We're going to go into camp and anything can happen. It can be in the next day, the next week, if it goes a month or two months, I don't think I'm going to let it affect the way I go about and be the leader of the team or change my approach because there is no deal in place right now."

Georges Laraque played on hockey's biggest stage during his NHL career, making it to the Stanley Cup Final twice. Now he'll literally be onstage.

Laraque will play the role of Fezzik from the 1987 film "The Princess Bride" in a live read at the Toronto International Film Festival this week, director Jason Reitman announced Tuesday on Twitter.

"Finding Fezzik, originated by Andre the Giant, is one of the trickiest pieces of casting I can imagine," said Reitman, who has directed other live reads including "The Big Lebowski," "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" and "Boogie Nights." "A French-speaking mountain of a man with fists for the brute squad and a kind heart. … Turns out I didn't need to look beyond the borders. I'm thrilled that Georges will be joining us."

Capitals' Backstrom not targeting specific return date

TORONTO -- Washington Capitals center Nicklas Backstrom remains uncertain about his availability for opening night against the New Jersey Devils on Oct. 10 after having arthroscopic surgery on his left hip on May 27.

Backstrom said the original timetable doctors gave him for a return to play was 4-6 months from the date of surgery. He started skating in mid-August and said he feels good, but he's not ready to commit to playing opening night.

"I'm not targeting anything. I'm keeping everything open," Backstrom said at the NHL's Player Media Tour on Tuesday. "It feels pretty good. I started skating, and it feels good and it's progressing, but at the same time you should be careful about these injuries, I think, and not push it too hard. We have no rush. We'll see how it goes the next couple weeks. I wish I could tell you exactly what date, but I can't."

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

TORONTO -- Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, entering his 11th season with the New York Rangers, was among a group of elite NHL players at the League's annual Player Media Tour on Tuesday.

Lundqvist spoke with NHL.com about the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, the Rangers, perspective he gained from sitting out with his injury last season, and more in the following Q&A:

We're in Toronto and there is a big press conference about the World Cup, so let's start there. What does it mean to you that you'll likely have another opportunity to play for Sweden in a major tournament, except this time in Toronto, which is considered the hockey capital?

"I'm excited. I think it's going to be a great tournament. Any time you play for your country it's a very special feeling. I still don't know yet how it's going to feel compared to the Olympics, just have to play and see. It's how it started for me, watching the national team play. It's always been very special to put that jersey on, and you're extremely proud every time you do it. The big thing too is you get to play against the best players, kind of like in an Olympic tournament. I'm looking forward to it."
