Rangers' Moore awarded Bill Masterton Trophy

Tuesday, 06.24.2014 / 7:34 PM / 2014 NHL Awards

New York Rangers forward Dominic Moore is the 2013-14 recipient of the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, awarded annually to the NHL player who "best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey." The award was presented by the Professional Hockey Writers’ Association (PHWA) to honor the late Bill Masterton, a player for the Minnesota North Stars who exhibited those qualities. Masterton died on Jan. 15, 1968, as a result of an on-ice injury.

Moore returned to the NHL this season after taking a leave of absence from the League in the spring of 2012 in order to care for his wife, Katie, after she had been diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer. Katie passed away at the age of 32 in January of 2013. Moore thereafter established the Katie Moore Foundation (katiemoore.org), dedicated to helping patients and families with rare cancers through research, advocacy and community. He resumed his career as an integral part of a Rangers team that earned 96 points and a second-place finish in the Metropolitan Division.

Flyers GM Hextall interested in trading up at draft

Tuesday, 06.24.2014 / 4:19 PM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

VOORHEES, N.J. -- Trade talk is usually par for the course in the days leading up to the NHL Draft. It's never too surprising to find the Philadelphia Flyers in the middle of such talk, either.

That's especially true this year, when for the first time in the Flyers' 46-year history, they will be hosting the draft, at Wells Fargo Center. The first round will be held Friday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN) and rounds 2-7 will be Saturday (10 a.m. ET; NHLN-US, NHLN-CA).

One day after what could be considered his busiest day since taking over as general manager in May, Ron Hextall was at the Flyers' practice facility Tuesday to discuss the draft and the possibility of a trade at some point this weekend.

"We'll look at trading up if we can, but we won't trade up if we're going to get a similar player at where we are drafting right now in the first round," said Hextall, whose team has the 17th choice in the first round. "There is separation from the top of the draft and where we are drafting, so we'll look to trade up.

"There's no [Sidney] Crosby or [Drew] Doughty in this draft, but there will be some good players taken. It's a decent draft but lacking high-end type guys that some drafts produce."

Mitch Korn is the new goaltending coach of the Washington Capitals, the team announced on Tuesday. He rejoins incoming coach Barry Trotz; the two worked together on the Nashville Predators' coaching staff for the past 15 seasons.

"I am very pleased to join the Washington Capitals and continue to work alongside Barry Trotz," Korn said.

I want to thank the Nashville Predators for a great 16 years and wish them the very best in the future."

Korn, 56, replaces longtime Capitals goalie Olie Kolzig, who after the 2013-14 season decided to not continue on as a full-time goaltending coach, citing family reasons. Korn and Kolzig are currently discussing Kolzig's involvement with the organization moving forward.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.

— Capitals defenseman Mike Green on teammate Alex Ovechkin's highlight-reel goal against the Devils on Saturday
