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."

Fabbri makes strong first impression on Blues

Saturday, 07.12.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- Tim Taylor has gotten to know St. Louis Blues 2014 first-round pick Robert Fabbri quite extensively this week.

The Blues director of player development worked with some of their top prospects during development camp at the Ice Zone, inside St. Louis Outlet Mall.

After watching Fabbri, Taylor understood why the Blues made the center from the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League the 21st pick last month.

"There's a reason why we picked him first," Taylor said of Fabbri, who had 45 goals and 87 points in 58 regular-season games then was named MVP of the OHL playoffs after he had 13 goals and 28 points in 16 games. He capped his season with two goals and four assists in four games while helping the Storm reach the Memorial Cup championship game.

Turris ready for role as Senators' top center

Friday, 07.11.2014 / 10:49 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Kyle Turris has experience taking over for Jason Spezza as the Ottawa Senators' No. 1 center and he is confident he can do it again.

Turris will ascend the depth chart this season after Spezza was traded to the Dallas Stars on July 1. Two seasons ago, Spezza was sidelined for almost all of the shortened schedule after back surgery.

"I definitely think I've learned a lot over the past two years from those experiences, from being put into that role when [Spezza] was hurt, and seeing how hard the matchup is," Turris told the Ottawa Sun on Friday. "I just tried to take that mentality and put it into the role I had this past year. … This upcoming year, if I'm put into that role again, I think the experience I have now will work in my favor, to know what to expect and how better to prepare for it."

Thursday, four months after the incident, Peverley detailed how he is working toward what he hopes will be a return to the ice.

"Everything's been going really well. I've been taking steps along the way here to see how my heart reacts to ongoing steps that I've been taking," Peverley told "The Musers" radio show on The Ticket 1310 AM in Dallas. "Just been ramping it up as time goes on and as I keep achieving new goals."

Blue Jackets' Milano more than video sensation

Friday, 07.11.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Craig Merz - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS -- Being "that guy" can be a blessing or a curse depending on the circumstances.

For Sonny Milano, fame came long before the Columbus Blue Jackets made the left wing the 16th pick of the 2014 NHL Draft.

Three years ago he made a YouTube video of his stickhandling skills after being inspired by a similar showcase from Tomas Jurco, now with the Detroit Red Wings.

With almost 50,000 views, the video earned Milano an online following, which expanded when he recorded a new set of videos for NHL.com at the NHL Scouting Combine in May.

Canadiens prospect Fucale learning from adversity

Friday, 07.11.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- A little over a year ago Zachary Fucale was living a dream.

Coming off a Memorial Cup championship with the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Fucale was the first goaltender selected at the 2013 NHL Draft. And the team doing the selecting was his hometown Montreal Canadiens.

Life could not have been much better.

What has transpired since the draft, however, could be described as a nightmare.

And Fucale is ready to wake up.

Ducks goalie Gibson using Game 7 loss as motivation

Thursday, 07.10.2014 / 8:45 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Anaheim Ducks goalie John Gibson has played in seven NHL games, and won five of them.

It's one he lost -- Game 7 of the Western Conference Second Round to the Los Angeles Kings -- that is sticking with him, in a good way.

He discussed that and his offseason in a Q&A with the Ducks website published Thursday.

"I think we'll all use it for motivation for next year," Gibson said. "I don't think we have to worry about in a negative way, but I think we'll use it as a positive."

Roy says Avalanche could be better this season

Thursday, 07.10.2014 / 1:49 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

After watching the offseason moves made by the Colorado Avalanche, coach Patrick Roy believes his team may be better now than the one that finished first in the Central Division last season.

Speaking with media at a golf tournament in Quebec on Thursday, Roy lauded the acquisitions made by Colorado management, most notably the signing of veteran forward Jarome Iginla, and the trades made to acquire defenseman Brad Stuart from the San Jose Sharks and forward Daniel Briere from the Montreal Canadiens.

"The addition of Iginla for us is very important," Roy said. "I think he's going to help our younger players continue to grow. It's extremely positive. Brad Stuart on defense will provide stability. He's going to play some big minutes and can play with Erik Johnson on the top pair. We're very confident with these additions. I think we improved the team in an important way."

Sharks' Hertl looking to improve on rookie season

Thursday, 07.10.2014 / 1:01 PM / NHL Insider

Eric Gilmore - NHL.com Correspondent

SAN JOSE -- Tomas Hertl's rookie season with the San Jose Sharks was packed with meteoric highs and devastating lows, each sudden change in elevation a valuable learning experience.

Hertl grabbed the national spotlight in his third NHL game when he scored four goals against the New York Rangers on Oct. 8, 2013 at SAP Center. He capped the performance with a between-the-legs, top-shelf goal.

Two months later, Hertl's Calder Trophy dreams came to an end when he damaged two ligaments in his right knee Dec. 19 in a collision with Los Angeles Kings forward Dustin Brown. Hertl returned for the final two regular-season games and seven games in the Sharks' loss to the Kings in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"We found out a lot about Tomas when things were going good, but we also found out a lot of things about him when things weren't so good," Sharks coach Todd McLellan said Wednesday during development camp. "His commitment to his rehab and to getting back into the lineup was exceptional, his want to play with his teammates in the playoffs. He showed us a lot of real positives through the bad times as much as through the good times last year

Quote of the Day

I think Loui Eriksson is a player that can be even better than he was last year. I think we started seeing that at the end of the year, and he could be a replacement for Jarome as a possibility.
