Sharks' Dan Boyle returns home

Thursday, 10.17.2013 / 1:35 AM / News

San Jose Sharks defenseman Dan Boyle returned home Wednesday after spending a night in a hospital following a hit by Maxime Lapierre of the St. Louis Blues during the Sharks' 6-2 road victory against the Blues on Tuesday.

The Sharks continue their road trip against the Dallas Stars on Thursday night, but coach Todd McLellan opted to cancel a scheduled practice.

"It was an emotional day," McLellan said.


Bruins' Rask glad to get chance to face Thomas

Wednesday, 10.16.2013 / 9:00 PM / NHL Insider


Tim Thomas' groin injury is healed, meaning he'll be in goal when his new team, the Florida Panthers, host his old club, the Boston Bruins, on Thursday night. His former goaltending partner, Tuukka Rask, is looking forward to the matchup.

"I never thought that we would play against each other," Rask told the Bruins website following practice Wednesday in Sunrise, Fla. "But I'm glad that he made his comeback and proved people wrong again, and I hope he does well."

Rask was the backup to Thomas for three seasons, as well as during the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, when Thomas won the Conn Smythe Trophy while leading Boston to its first championship since 1972. He backed up Thomas again in 2011-12 before getting his chance to start when Thomas opted to sit out last season.


Report: Rangers give Hagelin OK for contact

Wednesday, 10.16.2013 / 8:23 PM / News


The New York Rangers reportedly have cleared injured forward Carl Hagelin for contact. The New York Post reports that Hagelin, 25, is expected to resume practicing in full this week with a target return date of Oct. 29 against the New York Islanders.

Hagelin underwent shoulder surgery in the summer and missed the entire preseason in addition to the Rangers' first five games. Oct. 29 is the earliest he can be activated after the Rangers placed him on long-term injured reserve at the start of the regular season.


Jets forward Kane injured in practice

Wednesday, 10.16.2013 / 4:11 PM / News


Winnipeg Jets wing Evander Kane left practice Wednesday favoring his right leg and did not return.

Kane's injury came the morning after the Jets lost, 3-0, to the Montreal Canadiens at MTS Centre. The Jets did not reveal Kane's status for the team's next game Friday night against the St. Louis Blues.

Kane appeared to sustain the injury after getting caught up with fellow forward Anthony Peluso.

"He got a tweak in practice and he'll get assessed sometime today. We'll go from there," Jets coach Claude Noel said. "[He's] day-to-day right now."

Toronto Maple Leafs forward James van Riemsdyk took part in the first half of practice Wednesday and his status remains up in the air for the game Thursday against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle wouldn't rule out the possibility of van Riemsdyk returning to the lineup after he was scratched for the win Tuesday against the Minnesota Wild with an upper-body injury.

"Again, there's improvement but we'll see if he’s available to us for [Thursday] night," Carlyle told reporters. "Hopefully with another 24 hours and a couple treatments he'll be back."

Playoff battles have shaped Rangers-Capitals rivalry

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

WASHINGTON -- When the New York Rangers last saw Verizon Center, they were mobbing goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, who had just completed back-to-back shutouts, in celebration after a 5-0 Game 7 win against the Washington Capitals, matching the most lopsided winner-take-all win by a road team in NHL history.

Shocked and overwhelmed by their sudden change in fortunes, all the despondent Capitals could do was stare blankly in bewilderment.

Five months later, the new Metropolitan Division rivals will renew what has become one of the most contestable rivalries in the League when the Rangers’ season-opening nine-game road trip takes them to Washington to face the Capitals as part of NBCSN Wednesday Night Rivalry (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2).


Devils place forward Clowe on injured reserve

Wednesday, 10.16.2013 / 1:42 PM / News

The New Jersey Devils placed forward Ryane Clowe on injured reserve on Wednesday, retroactive to Oct. 13, with a head injury. Clowe, who has an assist and a minus-5 rating in six games in his first season with the Devils, will miss the team's next two games, against the Ottawa Senators on Thursday and the New York Rangers on Saturday.

"[Clowe] got hit with a pretty good elbow in the third period [Sunday in Winnipeg] and continued to play," Devils president/general manager Lou Lamoriello said.

The headache has since disappeared and Clowe told Lamoriello he wanted to play Thursday, but the Devils are holding him off the ice given his history with head injuries. Clowe had three suspected concussions last season, but received a clean bill of health before signing a five-year contract worth $4.85 million annually.


On the 'D'-fence: Minnesota D-men running Wild

Wednesday, 10.16.2013 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Brian Metzer - NHL.com Correspondent

The Minnesota Wild aren't the first team that comes to mind when thinking of units that are offensively dominant, but that is starting to change. They have seen their goals-per-game creep up from 2.02, which ranked dead last in the NHL three seasons ago, to 2.67 this season.

That may place them just 16th overall, but it's progress.

Left wing Matt Cooke surprisingly leads the team in scoring to this point in the season, but their defensemen have been a huge catalyst for that newfound production.

Norris Trophy finalist Ryan Suter, who has collected three assists (all on the power play) over his first six games, is a big part of that increase in productivity.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
