Tapped In: Thompson talks finding success in Tampa

Saturday, 11.23.2013 / 3:00 AM / Tapped In

Kathryn Tappen - NHL.com Contributor

The Tampa Bay Lightning have surprised many with their surge to the top of the Eastern Conference. A combination of leadership and skill, good coaching and solid goaltending is what Nate Thompson attributes to the team's success. Thompson, who has found the right fit in Tampa Bay, discusses life growing up in Alaska, the journey he took to the NHL and his new brother-in-law.

Kathryn Tappan: Growing up in Alaska what were some of the activities you participated in outside of hockey?

Nate Thompson: In Alaska fishing was the big thing. If I wasn’t a hockey player I’d be a fly fisherman. In the winter I actually skied and snowboarded. We also played hockey outside. I really enjoyed playing football. I was a running back and loved playing the game. I did so right up until I left to play hockey in Seattle [for the Thunderbirds in the Western Hockey League].

Daily Primer Nov. 23: California Dreamin' for Devils

Saturday, 11.23.2013 / 1:23 AM / NHL Insider

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The New Jersey Devils have already had a successful trip to California. A victory against the San Jose Sharks on Saturday night would be a perfect ending.

The Devils come to San Jose after back-to-back overtime wins against the Anaheim Ducks and Los Angeles Kings. New Jersey got a gift goal to win in Anaheim when the Ducks shot the puck into their own net, then used a historic one by Jaromir Jagr to win in L.A. Jagr's goal in overtime was the 690th of his career, tying him with longtime teammate Mario Lemieux for ninth place on the all-time list, and his 121st game-winner, equaling the record set by Gordie Howe.

Here's a complete look at the schedule on a busy Saturday:

LeBlanc learning on the ice, teaching off it

Friday, 11.22.2013 / 1:51 PM / AHL Update

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

For the vast majority of NHL prospects, playing in the American Hockey League is a time to learn.

For Rockford IceHogs center Drew LeBlanc, it's also a time to teach.

Just seven weeks into his rookie season, the 24-year-old has already become a regular at community appearances for the IceHogs, the top development team of the NHL's Chicago Blackhawks. Most recently, he has reached out to begin tutoring students in math at a Rockford-area middle school.

"For me, it's kind of selfish because I like teaching and I like being around kids," LeBlanc said. "Honestly, it was just something that I've wanted to do and be a part of.
