Bill Peters didn't know what to think when he saw Mike Babcock frenetically walking toward his table at the 2014 NHL Draft.
"He came over and said, 'Come here for a minute,'" Peters said. "I didn't know what was going on, but he was moving around like he was in a house on fire."
Peters knew better than to stay put. When coach summons you, you respond. Something meaningful is likely happening.

VANCOUVER -- Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman, who entered play Saturday leading all NHL defensemen with seven points (three goals), left midway through the second period of a 4-2 win against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury and did not return.
The Lightning will likely play the remainder of their five-game road trip, which continues Monday at the Edmonton Oilers, without Hedman; he is returning to Tampa for further evaluation.
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- St. Louis Blues center Paul Stastny will not play Sunday against the Anaheim Ducks because of an upper-body injury he sustained during his first shift against the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said.
Stastny, who leads the Blues in scoring with four points in the first three games, was hit by Coyotes forward Martin Hanzal along the boards at center ice and then by Mikkel Boedker in the St. Louis zone. He headed back to the locker room to be evaluated after his shift ended and did not return to the game.
Hitchcock described Stastny as day-to-day.
