Red Wings retire Nicklas Lidstrom's No. 5

Thursday, 03.06.2014 / 9:59 PM / NHL Insider

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- They rolled out the red carpet Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena, and there was no question as to whom it was meant to welcome.

Looking down at center ice prior to the Detroit Red Wings' game against the Colorado Avalanche, the red carpet was in the shape of the No. 5. If you looked behind each net, "5" was painted into the ice; in the corners of the rink, there were 5s; and attached to the lapels of Red Wings employees: 5.

That, of course, was the number Nicklas Lidstrom wore during his legendary 20-year NHL career, all with the Red Wings.

It clearly was the seven-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman’s night, and the Red Wings made sure everybody knew it.

There are a number of NHL general managers who already are looking ahead to the 2015 NHL Draft. One look at Erie Otters forward Connor McDavid shows why.

Stamkos back for Lightning in wake of St. Louis trade

Thursday, 03.06.2014 / 3:50 PM / NHL Insider


Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos admitted Wednesday was a roller-coaster day.

It started with Stamkos being declared healthy enough to return to the lineup after missing 45 games with a broken tibia sustained Nov. 11 against the Boston Bruins. It continued with the announcement hours later that Martin St. Louis, Tampa Bay's captain and leading scorer as well as Stamkos' linemate, had been traded to the New York Rangers.

The morning after, Stamkos was looking forward to his anticipated return to the Lightning lineup against the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday.

NEW YORK -- The National Hockey League announced today that it has decided to modify the disciplinary sanctions originally imposed on the New Jersey Devils' franchise for its conduct in connection with the signing of former NHL Player Ilya Kovalchuk in July 2010, which conduct was determined by an Impartial Arbitrator to have constituted a circumvention of the NHL/NHLPA Collective Bargaining Agreement (the "CBA") then in effect.


In the Cage: Trade deadline winners and losers

Thursday, 03.06.2014 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Justin Goldman - NHL.com Correspondent

Every Thursday during the season, Justin Goldman, a regional goalie scout for USA Hockey and founder of The Goalie Guild, will provide you with an in-depth analysis of fantasy goaltenders in NHL.com's weekly segment: "In the Cage." From updated goalie rankings to guys you should keep a close eye on and much more, Goldman will be your fantasy goalie expert all season long.

The NHL Trade Deadline on Wednesday saw an unprecedented 11 members of the goalie union trade places before the 3 p.m. ET deadline. Surprisingly, not a single goalie prospect (American Hockey League or otherwise) was involved in any of the transactions that took place, so a lot of fantasy rosters saw some significant changes.

To reflect on the trade fallout, we selected the top three fantasy goalie "winners" and "losers" and took a look at their potential usage for the remainder of the season.


Lidstrom honored to be immortalized by Red Wings

Thursday, 03.06.2014 / 10:39 AM / NHL Insider

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

DETROIT -- It was a ritual Nicklas Lidstrom did before nearly every practice at Joe Louis Arena.

While stretching at center ice, the former Red Wings captain would look up to the rafters. First he'd spot the long string of Stanley Cup championship banners, which grew from seven to 11 during his 20-year NHL career.

Next he'd see the six red banners of players whose numbers were retired: Gordie Howe (9), Sid Abel (12), Ted Lindsay (7), Alex Delvecchio (10), Terry Sawchuk (1) and former teammate Steve Yzerman (19).

Thursday night, prior to the Red Wings facing the Colorado Avalanche (8 p.m. ET, NHLN-US), Lidstrom's No. 5 will join them. A pre-game ceremony will officially remove his number from circulation for one of the League's storied franchises and he's still a little bit in awe of the whole thing.

Thursday, 03.06.2014 / 10:03 AM / News


The Carolina Hurricanes on Thursday recalled defenseman Ryan Murphy from the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League.

The move was necessary after Carolina general manager Jim Rutherford learned that defenseman Justin Faulk, who sustained an upper-body injury in a game against the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday, would miss least one week.


Daily Primer March 6: Stamkos returns for Lightning

Thursday, 03.06.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider


Martin St. Louis may be gone, but Steven Stamkos is back.

One day after the Tampa Bay Lightning traded their captain to the New York Rangers, their superstar center returns against the Buffalo Sabres at the Tampa Bay Times Forum on Thursday. Stamkos will be in the lineup for the first time since breaking his leg in a game against the Boston Bruins on Nov. 11. He has 14 goals in 17 games this season.

"I'm excited, a little anxious, a little nervous, everything all in one," Stamkos told the Lightning website Wednesday. "It's been a long road. It's been tough, but I think time heading in [to see the doctor] I was the most confident going in there knowing how I felt on the ice, off the ice, what I needed to do in order to get cleared to play, the tests I needed to go through, and everything felt great."

Here's a closer look at the action Thursday:


Prospector Files: OHL draft-eligible All-Star team

Thursday, 03.06.2014 / 3:00 AM / Prospector Files

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

A record 22 players representing the Canadian Hockey League were selected in the first round of the 2013 NHL Draft at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

Of the 22 players, eight were from the Ontario Hockey League, including Sean Monahan of the Ottawa 67's by the Calgary Flames with the sixth pick. It wouldn't be too surprising to see a dramatic increase in first-round picks from the OHL this year when the draft takes place at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on June 27.

Over the next five weeks, Prospector Files will offer a First Team draft-eligible pick six at each position from the four major junior hockey leagues and one All European Team, beginning this week with the talent-laden OHL.
