Goalie Subban ready to climb Bruins depth chart

Thursday, 07.10.2014 / 3:00 AM / News

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Boston Bruins goaltending prospect Malcolm Subban knows how to make an entrance.

Subban was the only player missing at the start of the first on-ice session at the Bruins' annual development camp at Ristuccia Arena on Wednesday. About 20 minutes into drills, he finally made his way through the boards and onto the rink.

As it turns out, Subban cramped up after the run that was part of the prospects' off-ice testing. He stayed back to ice down and earned a valuable piece of advice from Bruins management.

Burakovsky ready to challenge for spot with Capitals

Thursday, 07.10.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Life was a series of adjustments for Andre Burakovsky last season.

In migrating to the Ontario Hockey League from Sweden, the Erie Otters forward and Washington Capitals prospect thrust himself into a completely foreign situation.

His schedule became consumed by hockey, leaving him with little free time outside the rink. On the ice the smaller playing surface presented its own challenges, particularly when it came to proper positioning and keeping pace with the speed of the game.

Burakovsky, attending Washington's development camp this week, characterized his first several games with Erie as "really, really bad."

"I was wondering how I could play so well the year before then come over here and nothing really worked for me," he said. "It takes time to learn the game. You don't just learn it one day. It takes weeks."

To those around him, though, whatever struggles he may have had were negligible.

"If he had problems at the beginning," Erie coach Kris Knoblauch said, "he didn't show them."

Over the Boards: Expectations rise for Lightning

Thursday, 07.10.2014 / 3:00 AM / Over the Boards

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Jon Cooper walked right into the question. And he knew it too.

Cooper, the coach of the Tampa Bay Lightning, was talking about going through the stages in his career that led him to the 2014 NHL Awards as a finalist for the Jack Adams Award. He was talking about doubting himself at each stage, overcoming the insecurity and realizing he can deliver the goods and hang with the best coaches in the business, because right now he is one of them.

"In the big picture this year I feel confident that I belong," Cooper said.

As soon as he stopped talking, the following question came at him fast. It was about the next stage, which has to be winning in the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Cooper smiled and laughed, and then he agreed.

Wednesday, 07.09.2014 / 9:01 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Dany Heatley is 33 years old with an impressive scoring resume, but he knows he might not get many more opportunities like this. His numbers are on the decline and his legs aren't what they used to be.

Sometimes it just takes the right fit to reboot a career, though, and the Anaheim Ducks might be that match for Heatley, who signed a one-year, $1 million contract Wednesday.
