The New Jersey Devils will turn back to Cory Schneider on Saturday as they once again seek their first win of the season, this time against the New York Rangers at Prudential Center.

It will be Schneider's fourth start this season, matching the total Martin Brodeur has received. Brodeur allowed four goals on 22 shots in a 5-2 loss Thursday to the Ottawa Senators, dropping the Devils to 0-4-3 and leaving them as the only team in the NHL without a win.

Schneider last played Sunday in a 3-0 loss to the Winnipeg Jets, stopping 32 of 34 shots.


Wild return goaltender Kuemper to AHL

Friday, 10.18.2013 / 1:15 PM / News


The Minnesota Wild announced Friday that they have reassigned goaltender Darcy Keumper to the Iowa Wild of the American Hockey League.

Kuemper was called up by the Wild on Oct. 14 and started in Toronto on Tuesday night, stopping four of seven shots before being pulled for Josh Harding in Minnesota's 4-1 loss against the Maple Leafs.

Kuemper's call-up was necessitated by the knee strain suffered by starting goaltender Niklas Backstrom on Oct. 8 in a game against the Nashville Predators. But Backstrom dressed on Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning and served as Harding's backup.


Akeson hopes hard work carries him back to NHL

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

It's not easy to be known as "the hardest working man in the business," but when it comes to hockey, that won't deter Jason Akeson from his pursuit of the title.

"I've always said if you're the hardest working guy on the ice and are doing all the little things right, then that's what's going to give you a shot to make it," he said.

It's his devotion to hard work that has carried the 23-year-old this far. Undrafted, the one-time Ontario Hockey League scoring champion signed an entry-level deal with the Philadelphia Flyers in 2011 and has spent the majority of the past two seasons with the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.

The Toronto Maple Leafs could have goaltender James Reimer and forward James van Riemsdyk in the lineup Saturday for their game against the Chicago Blackhawks (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US, CBC).

Reimer practiced Friday after leaving the Maple Leafs' game Thursday against the Carolina Hurricanes after just 32 seconds following a collision with teammate Josh Leivo.

Reimer was attempting to recover a rebound when a backchecking Leivo appeared to make contact with the goalie's head. Reimer lay on the ice before skating with assistance to the locker room. Coach Randy Carlyle said after the game Reimer had a headache.


Wilson to remain with Capitals all season

The Washington Capitals have told forward Tom Wilson he's staying put in the NHL.

Wilson has played in seven games with the Capitals this season. His entry-level contract kicks in after he plays in his ninth game.

"It's huge. It's awesome. It definitely makes me feel a little more comfortable," Wilson said in meeting with reporters after he received the news from general manager George McPhee and coach Adam Oates.

The 19-year-old made his NHL debut during last season's Stanley Cup Playoffs, playing three games in the Capitals' first-round series loss to the New York Rangers.


Callahan's absence leaves Rangers in tough spot

Ryan Callahan isn't the kind of player who will go end-to-end to score the highlight-reel goal, and if you're looking for a Knute Rockne-style speechmaker, you're probably going to be disappointed.

But if you're looking for a player who can make plays in the offensive zone and defensive zone with equal ability and lead more with deeds than words, Callahan is your man.

That's why he's the New York Rangers' captain, and why they're in a tough spot now that he's going to miss as much as a month with a broken thumb sustained Wednesday in a win over the Washington Capitals.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
