USA Hockey execs excited about Youngstars team

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel represented different teams and different countries last season on the way to becoming the top two picks at the 2015 NHL Draft.

Imagine for a moment that they're playing on the same team and working the same power-play unit on a world stage.

It could happen when the World Cup of Hockey takes place in September 2016. The eight-team tournament, which will take place at Air Canada Centre in Toronto, will feature not only national teams from the United States, Canada, Russia, Sweden, Finland and the Czech Republic, as well as a team of top players from other European nations and a North American Under-23 Youngstars team that might include McDavid and Eichel.

The management team for USA Hockey, including general manager Dean Lombardi, assistant GM Paul Holmgren and assistant executive director of hockey operations Jim Johannson, on Thursday discussed what could turn out to be one of the more entertaining teams at the tournament.

USA Hockey names Lombardi as World Cup GM

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Dean Lombardi passionately embraced his appointment as general manager of the United States for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

"To be trusted with this responsibility, in this role of serving my country, is one of the highest honors of my career," Lombardi said Thursday. "I can assure you that myself and my staff will do everything in our power to make this country proud."

During his opening remarks, Lombardi, the president and GM of the Los Angeles Kings, trotted out mileposts of the growth of USA Hockey, framed by the program's twin peaks of excellence: the 1980 Olympic gold-medal winners and the 1996 World Cup championship team.

Unmasked: More teams prioritize goalie development

VANCOUVER -- It's been a big summer for goaltending development coaches in the NHL, with three of six vacant goalie coaching jobs filled by coaches who worked previously in development roles for other organizations and two others moving up from junior hockey.

Andrew Allen went from goaltending development coach for the Chicago Blackhawks to goalie coach of the Buffalo Sabres. Johan Hedberg made a similar move from a development role with the New Jersey Devils to an NHL job with the San Jose Sharks, and Kim Dillabaugh made the same jump from the Los Angeles Kings to the Philadelphia Flyers.

But the biggest goalie move may be in the other direction and was made by the only team that didn't reach into the development ranks to fill its NHL position. The Dallas Stars instead hired Jeff Reese, who left the Flyers last season, to be their new goalie coach at the NHL level and moved Mike Valley into a new role as director of goaltending development after five seasons as the their goalie coach.

With the move, Dallas joins a growing list of teams putting more emphasis on goalie development and sinking more resources into it.

Crosby praises Penguins GM for offseason moves

Thursday, 08.06.2015 / 3:08 PM / News


Sidney Crosby praised Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford for the work he's done this offseason, including a blockbuster trade that brought in wing Phil Kessel.

"It's difficult. It's not easy to make moves," Crosby told the Penguins website, speaking from his hockey camp in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. "He's found a way to make our team better and improve our team. As players, you want to respond. So I think it's up to us to come to camp ready and make sure we get a good start and start things on the right foot. But like last year, with a little bit of change, you really have to focus on that and be aware of it. It's not easy just to bring in new guys and have everything be smooth. So we'll all be together in that, whether it's players or coaching staff, and we'll find a way to make sure we're ready for Game 1."
