Red Wings' Miller out 4-6 months, Kronwall 2-4 weeks

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 1:56 PM / News

Detroit Red Wings forward Drew Miller had surgery to reconstruct his left ACL and will miss 4-6 months and defenseman Niklas Kronwall is out 2-4 weeks after arthroscopic knee surgery, according to the Red Wings website.

Miller, who hasn't played since Jan. 10, has one goal and one assist in 28 games this season.

"He's an elite penalty killer, there's no question," coach Jeff Blashill told the Red Wings website. "That doesn't mean that our penalty kill can't do a great job. We've got guys, we've been using (Justin Abdelkader) more, we've been starting to use Dylan Larkin more, (Tomas) Jurco at different times has had reps on the PK in practice. We're going to have to find a mix of guys that can get it done."

Canucks' Etem faces Rangers hoping to make impact

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- Forward Emerson Etem was relatively ineffective in nine games at Madison Square Garden as a member of the New York Rangers this season before he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks on Jan. 8 for minor-league prospect Nicklas Jensen.

Etem returns Tuesday (7 p.m. ET; SNP, MSG) hoping to make a bigger impact at the Garden, only this time for the visiting team.

"I'm starting to gain more confidence," Etem said, "and hopefully I can come in here and show the fans something."

Etem didn't show the Rangers much in the 19 games he played for them this season. He was a healthy scratch in 21 games, which was disappointing for the Rangers, who acquired Etem at the 2015 NHL Draft in a trade that sent left wing Carl Hagelin to the Anaheim Ducks.

Oilers' Nugent-Hopkins out 6-8 weeks with hand injury

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 12:08 PM / News

Edmonton Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins will miss the next 6-8 weeks with a hand injury, coach Todd McLellan said Tuesday.

Nugent-Hopkins sustained the injury Monday in the second period of a 4-2 victory against the Florida Panthers when he blocked a shot by defenseman Dmitry Kulikov during a Florida power play. He left the ice 2:47 into the second period with Edmonton leading 2-0. He played 7:08 and had an assist on forward Taylor Hall's goal in the first period.

Nugent-Hopkins, the first pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, has eight goals and 22 assists in 46 games.

"He's a key player for us and a big-time player for our team," center Leon Draisaitl said. "Obviously now it's time for other guys to step up and kind of pick that up. He did everything -- he kills penalties, plays on the power play, he produces offensively, takes faceoffs ... all-around player. It's going to hurt but we have the skill and the players to replace him."

Fantasy forwards: Second line elevating Capitals

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Pete Jensen - Fantasy Insider

Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom of the Washington Capitals have been elite-level fantasy staples throughout the past decade. Suddenly, they have company in their own town.

Ovechkin is second in the NHL in goals (27) and leads the League in shots on goal (222), while Backstrom is one of six players with a point per game or better this season (others: Patrick Kane, Jamie Benn, Tyler Seguin, Erik Karlsson, Johnny Gaudreau). No one should be surprised to see Ovechkin and Backstrom where they are in the fantasy rankings, but rarely have the Capitals had a second line as powerful as their current trio of Evgeny Kuznetsov, Justin Williams and Andre Burakovsky.

NEW YORK – John Scott will captain the Pacific Division team at the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Weekend in Nashville, the National Hockey League announced today.

Scott, elected to the Pacific Division captaincy in fan voting while a member of the Arizona Coyotes, was traded Friday to the Montreal Canadiens of the Atlantic Division. The resultant change in division, and Scott’s subsequent assignment to the American Hockey League, created a unique circumstance that required review – the result of which was a determination to maintain the status quo for the All-Star weekend in order to preserve all parties' pre-existing expectations, including Scott’s desire to participate.

Reverent Daniel Sedin on cusp of passing Naslund

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 11:00 AM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Daniel Sedin doesn't consider himself as good a goal-scorer as fellow Swede Markus Naslund but is humbled to be mentioned with him as one of the best in Vancouver Canucks history.

Sedin needs one goal to reach 347 and pass Naslund to become Vancouver's all-time leading scorer.

Naslund scored his 346 goals in 884 games for Vancouver over 11-plus seasons. Sedin will play his 1,108th game at the New York Rangers on Tuesday.

"The night I matched him (with two goals in a 3-2 overtime win against the Florida Panthers on Jan. 11), I said he will always be the best goal-scorer, in my mind," said Sedin, who the Canucks selected with the second pick in the 1999 NHL Draft. "He did it in less games and had a better shot."

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

There's a good chance three international prospects will be selected among the top five picks for the first time in 15 years when the 2016 NHL Draft is held June 24-25 at First Niagara Center in Buffalo.

Heading the list of exceptional talent playing in Europe this season is center Auston Matthews of Zurich in National League A, the top professional league in Switzerland. Matthews, 18, is No. 1 on NHL Central Scouting's midterm list of international skaters, released Tuesday.

Matthews, a native of Scottsdale, Ariz., opted to play this season for Zurich, where not only is he playing against older, more physically developed competition, he's coached by former NHL coach Marc Crawford.

He also helped the United States win the bronze medal at the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship, tying for the U.S. lead with 11 points.

Five Questions: Predators' Poile talks ASG, Johansen

Tuesday, 01.19.2016 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer's Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Nashville Predators general manager David Poile:

Eighteen-and-a-half years in the town aptly known as "Music City USA" has turned Nashville Predators general manager David Poile into a country music fan.

"I have become one, absolutely," Poile said. "The fact that we've had so many stars actually come to our games, sing at our games between periods, do the national anthem, it's part of our fabric for sure."

Poile lists Vince Gill and Amy Grant as his favorites.

"For me, those are two of the best voices ever," he said.

Gill's inclusion in the upcoming NHL All-Star Weekend festivities in Nashville is yet another reason, among a plethora of them, that Poile is so excited to show his adopted city off to the hockey world.
