Maurice: Jets to keep Byfuglien at wing -- for now

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

For those expecting new Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice to make a decision on whether to play Dustin Byfuglien at forward or defense in the near future, you may be waiting for a while.

One of Claude Noel's last moves before being removed as coach Sunday was moving Byfuglien from the blue line to forward alongside Olli Jokinen and Devin Setoguchi. Byfuglien responded with two assists Monday night, helping Maurice win his debut in a 5-1 victory against the Phoenix Coyotes at MTS Centre.

Maurice ran his first practice as Jets coach Tuesday morning, and afterward told reporters he will keep Byfuglien at right wing for the time being. He was then asked if there was a timetable as to how long the 6-foot-5, 265-pounder would stay there.

"Right when I need to … and not before," Maurice said.


NHL unveils rendering of Dodger Stadium


NEW YORK -- The National Hockey League today unveiled the architectural rendering of the 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series™ outdoor NHL game at Dodger Stadium between the Los Angeles Kings and Anaheim Ducks on Saturday, Jan. 25 at 6:30 p.m. PT / 9:30 p.m. ET.

The rendering illustrates the final transformation of iconic Dodger Stadium for the historic NHL game. The Kings and Ducks will face-off on the NHL-regulation size ice rink located in the infield. Platinum recording artist Jordin Sparks will sing the U.S. national anthem while singer/songwriter John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting will perform during the second intermission on the stage located at home plate. That stage will feature a special design created by Los Angeles art legend Mister Cartoon and children from the Los Angeles-based nonprofit, Para Los Niños.

The stage in right field will feature special pre-game and first intermission performances from legendary rock band and 2014 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees KISS. Local beach volleyball players will play throughout the game on the beach volleyball sand court located in left field. Centerfield will feature palm streets in a nod to the game's Southern California setting.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
