Anthony Brodeur could get drafted in New Jersey

Thursday, 07.05.2012 / 1:00 PM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

While the list of top prospects entering the 2012-13 campaign seems to be growing by the minute, there's one name that may stick out among all others when the 2013 NHL Draft is held at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., next spring.

Goalie Anthony Brodeur, who just so happens to be the son of New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur, certainly will be on the radar of curious NHL scouts and general managers.

If drafted, it would be a rather surreal moment for Brodeur to hear his name announced in the state where his father became a legend. The 17-year-old enters his senior year at prep powerhouse Shattuck-St. Mary's in Minnesota in 2012-13.

De Haan feels he's ready to make an impact

Thursday, 06.28.2012 / 10:36 AM / Prospects

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

John Tavares was the No. 1 pick in the 2009 NHL Draft and already has played three seasons with the New York Islanders. He finished in the top 10 in scoring this past season and is on his way to becoming one of hockey's elite players.

Often forgotten is the fact that the Islanders had a second first-rounder that year. But Calvin de Haan's path to the NHL hasn't been nearly as smooth -- even though he was taken just 11 picks after Tavares and the Islanders traded up twice to get him.

Though he checked in at just 6-feet and about 160 pounds, the Isles were impressed by de Haan's offensive abilities, hockey knowledge and composure -- so much so that he nearly made the team as an 18-year-old in 2009; he stayed with the Islanders all the way through training camp before being reassigned to his junior team, the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League, just before the start of the season. But since making a good first impression, not much has gone right for the 21-year-old defenseman.

Kuznetsov could be next great Russian to join Caps

Tuesday, 01.10.2012 / 10:43 AM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

There's little doubt Evgeny Kuznetsov has all the makings of a future star in the NHL.

The question, though, is when does that future begin?

The Washington Capitals, who were thrilled to select the talented Russian forward with the 26th pick of the 2010 Entry Draft, hope it happens much sooner than later.

"Evgeny has always indicated to us when we interviewed him prior to the draft that he would likely spend two more years in the KHL in order to get stronger and more mature," Washington Capitals general manager George McPhee told NHL.com. "We said that was fine. Hopefully it can be done with a contract and he'll be playing in the NHL next year."

Thursday, 10.13.2011 / 3:26 PM / Prospects

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- After watching the first two games of the 2011-12 season, Ryan Strome is headed back to the Ontario Hockey League.
 
Strome, the fifth pick at the 2011 Entry Draft, was returned by the New York Islanders to the Niagara Ice Dogs on Thursday morning. Strome said goodbye to teammates at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, addressed the media and headed straight for the airport.
 
"They told me they wanted to keep me here for some experience," said Strome, who had 33 goals and 73 assists in 65 games for Niagara last season, his first full junior campaign. "I did that. I know it's been a week now and I think I've learned a lot. I'm just happy I got the opportunity to be around the team during the regular season and see what it's like. They wanted to me to get a good taste of things, and I think I did that."

Wild prospect Lucia opts for Notre Dame

Friday, 10.07.2011 / 1:19 PM / Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

While Mario Lucia won't be coached by his father in college, he'll instead follow a similar collegiate path.

Lucia, who currently is starring for the Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League, committed to the University of Notre Dame on Thursday and will join the Fighting Irish in the fall of 2012. The decision closes the book on the countless questions regarding his collegiate destination as the 6-foot-2, 187-pound left wing also was considering Colorado College and Minnesota.

Lucia's father, Don Lucia, is the coach at the University of Minnesota but also graduated from Notre Dame in 1981 and played hockey there. Don lettered three times as a defenseman at Notre Dame and served as assistant team captain his senior year.

Warsofsky faces tough challenges to make Bruins

Friday, 09.16.2011 / 1:23 PM / Prospects

Deborah Francisco - NHL.com Staff Writer

Rookie defenseman David Warsofsky is trying to become the ninth member of Boston University's 2009 NCAA National Championship team to make the NHL. The fact that he'll have to it by earning a spot of the defending Stanley Cup champs makes the assignment a lot tougher.

Warsofsky is trying to join a list of former teammates who have already cracked the NHL that already includes Colin Wilson (Nashville), Nick Bonino (Anaheim), Brandon Yip (Colorado), Matt Gilroy (Tampa Bay), Colby Cohen (Boston), John McCarthy (San Jose), Kevin Shattenkirk (St. Louis) and Brian Strait (Pittsburgh).

But the task ahead of Warsofsky is more difficult than most -- the Bruins have almost everyone back from the team that beat Vancouver for the Cup last spring.

"It's obviously not going to be easy," he told NHL.com.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
