Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

This is the week where fantasy owners get to stuff their faces with turkey, stuffing and plenty of hockey action; more on that later in the roster trends. Here are some of the players we are giving #HockeyThanks for in the fantasy world so far.

A healthy Sidney Crosby is where he belongs near the top of Yahoo fantasy rankings and it sure looks like there is no slowing down No. 87 on the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Daily Primer Nov. 25: Blues, Wild aim to gain ground

Monday, 11.25.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider


The top four teams in the Central Division are in a heated race for first place. Two of those teams happen to be the hottest in the NHL and will go head-to-head Monday night.

The St. Louis Blues, who are one point behind the Chicago Blackhawks for the division lead, will host the fourth-place Minnesota Wild at Scottrade Center (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2). The Wild are currently tied for third in the Central, one point behind St. Louis and two back of Chicago.

St. Louis is 9-2-1 this month; the Wild are 9-1-1. Minnesota coach Mike Yeo knows his club will need to bring its best effort.

"I would say their defensive squad is about as good as you can find in the League; the way they skate, they're big, they're strong and the way they move the puck, they definitely help their forwards get to their game," Yeo told the Wild's website. "And their forwards obviously have an identity with the way they play."

Here's a look at all of Monday's action:


Simpson sheds shadow at North Dakota

Monday, 11.25.2013 / 3:00 AM / On Campus

Bob Snow - NHL.com Correspondent

If University of North Dakota senior defenseman Dillon Simpson were born three years earlier, the family photo album would likely have him sitting in Lord Stanley's Cup.

Simpson's dad, Craig, also an NCAA standout at Michigan State, was etched into Cup lore when the Edmonton Oilers won the championship in 1988 and 1990.

Currently a broadcaster for Hockey Night in Canada, Craig Simpson's two college seasons from 1983-85 included 141 points in 88 games, which led to becoming the No. 2 pick by the Pittsburgh Penguins at the 1985 NHL Draft.

His NHL career from 1985-95 would begin immediately in the Steel City for almost three seasons, but it ended prematurely with the Buffalo Sabres after a serious back injury.

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

It's become a common sight to see an executive associated with the Canadian Olympic team scouting from press boxes across the National Hockey League. The architects of the team Canada will bring to the 2014 Sochi Olympics are taking and comparing notes on a regular basis.

Executive Director Steve Yzerman is tasked with putting it all together. He routinely dispatches himself and his chief lieutenants -- Doug Armstrong, Ken Holland, Peter Chiarelli and Kevin Lowe -- around the League to check in with the players that are under consideration.

The players know they're watching. They're trying to impress.
