Wild's Parise stars in celebrity softball game

Monday, 07.14.2014 / 8:35 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Zach Parise's scouting report on himself proved to be accurate this weekend.

The Minnesota Wild forward singled and doubled playing in the Taco Bell All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game at Target Field on Sunday, part of Major League Baseball's All-Star festivities.

"I was always a small-ball player when I played baseball anyway, never much of a home-run guy," Parise told the Pioneer Press. "Contact, get on base, no strikeouts. It was fun."

Devils prospects know there are spots in lineup

Monday, 07.14.2014 / 6:34 PM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Perhaps a silver lining in a season when the New Jersey Devils failed to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs was the impact defensemen Jon Merrill and Eric Gelinas had as rookies.

Each was given an opportunity because of injuries in the lineup, and many expect they will play big roles in 2014-15. The idea entering training camp in September is for Merrill, Gelinas and Adam Larsson to have an opportunity to earn a full-time job among the top six.

The loss of defensemen Anton Volchenkov (buyout) and Mark Fayne (Edmonton Oilers) this offseason may have opened the door for another young defenseman to join the mix or at least serve as an injury replacement. Among them at Devils development camp this week at AmeriHealth Pavilion are Seth Helgeson (No. 114 pick in the 2009 NHL Draft) and Damon Severson (No. 60, 2012).

General manager Lou Lamoriello and coach Peter DeBoer may also use rookie camp and training camp to target a few young forwards capable of providing some energy, enthusiasm and production on a regular basis. Two possible candidates are Reid Boucher and Stefan Matteau.

Flyers prospects, fans take in annual Trial on the Isle

Monday, 07.14.2014 / 5:56 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

STONE HARBOR, N.J. -- On a beautiful 90-degree summer day, even the most devoted hockey prospects would like to take a day off and hit the beach.

Philadelphia Flyers trainer Jim McCrossin knows that as well as anyone, and that's why he's one of the hosts of the annual Trial on the Isle, a day of hard work and fun that comes near the end of a long week of development camp for Flyers hopefuls.

The 29 players at the camp got their work in, but it was on the beach and in the water rather than on the ice.

"It was definitely nice to get out here away from the rink this week," defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere said. "Nice to be with the fans and all the support we have. We had the trial on the isle, the obstacle course. We went to the bay and we did a little paddleboarding and kayaking, relay races. Now we're doing autographs for kids."

Sanheim's rapid ascent caught Flyers' attention

Monday, 07.14.2014 / 5:16 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

STONE HARBOR, N.J. -- Travis Sanheim had just emerged from a tug of war on a paddleboard and a kayak race on the waters of the back bays in this New Jersey beach town. They followed a long morning of running on the beach and swimming in the Atlantic Ocean.

However, it would have taken a serious storm to blow the smile off his face.

The Philadelphia Flyers' 2014 first-round pick (No. 17) knows he is now light years away from where he was a year ago.

"I was playing midget hockey [last year], sitting on the couch watching the [NHL] draft," Sanheim said. "Just dreaming and hoping I could walk up on that stage, and for it to be a year later is pretty crazy."

Predators don't want to rush talented Forsberg

Monday, 07.14.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

John Manasso - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- For all of the Nashville Predators fans concerned about the development of Filip Forsberg, it's worth keeping in mind that he's 19 years old.

Perhaps because the Predators have struggled for offense in recent seasons and because Forsberg was drafted high in the first round and was acquired in a trade with the Washington Capitals for Martin Erat, a player who averaged 53 points for the Predators for seven consecutive seasons, the weight of heavy expectations has fallen upon Forsberg.

He has plenty of time to live up to them, but as with all players he needs to be given time to develop.

"Obviously it's a long journey," Forsberg said during Predators development camp. "I'm still a pretty young kid so hopefully … my time is coming this year."

Hashimoto has memorable trip to Blue Jackets camp

Sunday, 07.13.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Craig Merz - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS -- What little he knew of the NHL, a 10-year-old Ryo Hashimoto learned from viewing a highlight video at home in Sapporo, Japan.

"I watched a lot of games but it was the same tape over and over again," he said Tuesday through a translator. "Now I can pick up the computer and follow on NHL.com."

Hashimoto got a chance this week to see the NHL firsthand as a free-agent invitee to Columbus Blue Jackets development camp that ended Thursday.

The 21-year-old hopes his efforts eventually lead to a contract with the Blue Jackets, but the Japanese Hockey Federation already has benefitted from his time here.

"People are following him back home," said Yasuhiro Umeta, the vice chief secretary for Asia League Ice Hockey who traveled with Hashimoto and acted as his interpreter.

"I'm so happy he has the opportunity. He thinks he can play here."

Capitals owner says new regime 'in total sync'

Saturday, 07.12.2014 / 3:45 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. – In entering the first phase of what was termed an organizational refresh earlier this offseason, it was imperative to Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis that all facets of management were aligned.

"You need to be totally in sync [with new coach Barry Trotz]," Leonsis recalled telling general manager Brian MacLellan upon promoting him in May. "With the players that we sign, the players that we draft, you have to be in total sync."

Two months into the Capitals' new regime, Leonsis has seen his directives carried out to his satisfaction.

"So far, so good on that," he said Saturday. "I think that's a good move in a positive direction to have the organization all singing from the same songbook."
