Alfredsson still mum on retirement

Tuesday, 06.19.2012 / 8:07 PM / 2012 NHL Awards

Shawn P. Roarke - NHL.com Senior Managing Editor

LAS VEGAS -- In a town famous for gambling, Ottawa forward Daniel Alfredsson refused to place odds on whether or not he will call it quits.

Right Wing - OTT
GOALS: 2 | ASST: 0 | PTS: 2
SOG: 15 | +/-: -3
"I don't know," Alfredsson said Tuesday at a media availability for the NHL Awards at the Wynn Hotel. " I do [think about returning] some mornings and some mornings I'm stiff and it would be nice to just take it easy. I can't say I'm leaning one way or another right now.

Complicating matters for Alfredsson is the fact that he has not begun full workouts for an extended period of time because of an illness that has sidelined him for 10 days or so.

"When I get back to training and can push myself a little bit more, see how I handle that physically and mentally, then I'll know what to do," Alfredsson said.

Landeskog, Karlsson mull NHL Awards wardrobe

Tuesday, 06.19.2012 / 5:09 PM / 2012 NHL Awards

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

LAS VEGAS -- Skinny tie or bow tie?

Ah yes, the difficult wardrobe decisions a 19-year-old superstar athlete has to make in Las Vegas.

"I don't know if I have the guts to rock a bow tie," Colorado forward Gabriel Landeskog said Tuesday from the John Varvatos store inside Caesars Palace, where he was being fitted for the suit he will wear Wednesday to the 2012 NHL Awards show.

Landeskog, one of three finalists for the Calder Trophy, agonized over his neckwear for more than 20 minutes while fellow Swede and Norris Trophy finalist Erik Karlsson of Ottawa was getting his new threads tailored to his specifications -- without any fuss, mind you.

Kings fan Perry enjoys hosting Kopitar, Cup

Tuesday, 06.19.2012 / 4:47 PM / 2012 NHL Awards

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

Given the opportunity, most professional athletes and Hollywood actors would gladly trade jobs for a few days. So it shouldn't have come as a surprise when actor Matthew Perry started a fast friendship with Los Angeles Kings center Anze Kopitar.

The hockey history that took place in the weeks that followed, on the other hand, caught everyone by surprise.

"I actually met [Anze] at a Dodgers game just at the beginning of their playoff run," Perry told NHL.com. "Like an 8-year old child, I just ran up to him and talked to him."

It's almost a year to the day since Gabriel Landeskog was taken by the Colorado Avalanche with the second pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, and even the 19 year-old left winger can't believe how fast time has gone by.

Then again, it's been a very eventful year for the kid from Stockholm. After arriving in Denver from the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League, Landeskog proceeded to lead the Avs in goals, shots, and plus-minus before playing at the World Championship in his hometown and eventually arriving in Las Vegas this week to contend for the Calder Trophy as the League's top rookie.

"It's crazy. Time really does fly. It feels like yesterday I was sitting there [at the Draft]," Landeskog told NHL.com while in New York demonstrating SimpliFlow's new Flow Competitive Sports workout app. "I've been having a lot of fun with it, but I'm enjoying it with my family and friends."

Hart race highlights star-studded NHL Awards

Monday, 06.18.2012 / 12:22 PM / 2012 NHL Awards

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Evgeni Malkin will find out this week if carrying the Penguins to a 108-point season without the services of captain Sidney Crosby for three-quarters of the games was good enough to be the National Hockey League's most valuable player for the 2011-12 season.

Malkin, who already won the Art Ross Trophy for leading the NHL in scoring with 109 points, is a finalist for the Hart Trophy along with Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist and Lightning center Steven Stamkos.

The Hart Trophy will be the biggest prize handed out Wednesday at the 2012 NHL Awards at Encore Theater in Wynn Las Vegas (7 p.m. ET, NBCSN; 8 p.m local CBC), where the hockey world and the entertainment world come together for the League's annual end-of-the-season celebration. Coverage of red carpet arrivals begins on NHL Network at 4 p.m. ET, with a recap show to follow the Awards at 9 p.m. ET.

Rangers' Lundqvist already eager for next season

Friday, 06.15.2012 / 9:01 PM / 2012 NHL Awards

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

For the first time in a while, New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist's expectations don't match those of his fans.

The most faithful Blueshirts followers will tell you that Lundqvist, without question, should win the Vezina Trophy at the annual NHL Awards Show on Wednesday in Las Vegas. He's a finalist along with the Kings' Jonathan Quick and Nashville's Pekka Rinne.

Most of those same fans will also say he should win the Hart Trophy, despite the fact that just being a finalist for the League's MVP award along with Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin and Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos caught the typically alert and aware Lundqvist totally off-guard.

Quick gave goalie coach a perfect parting gift

Friday, 06.15.2012 / 11:27 AM / 2012 NHL Awards

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

Following an All-America playing career at Holy Cross that resulted in a single game with the Boston Bruins and more than 20 years mentoring college goaltenders, 2006 was going to be Jim Stewart's farewell to hockey.

Stewart earned a 1985 national championship coaching Darren Puppa and Adam Oates at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute before spending five years as a volunteer assistant at the University of Massachusetts. He was leaving the game to focus more on his family. But all of a sudden, a young goaltending prospect named Jonathan Quick compelled Stewart to stick around for one final season.
