PITTSBURGH -- San Jose Sharks forward Patrick Marleau scored his 1,000th career point across the street from where his career began.

A little more than 18 years ago, Marleau was the No. 2 pick in the 1997 NHL Draft held at Pittsburgh's Civic Arena, which was located across Centre Avenue from where Consol Energy Center is now.

With two assists in a 3-1 win against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday, Marleau has 1,001 points in 1,349 NHL games, all with San Jose.

"That's really cool," Marleau said. "Being drafted here and getting the 1,000 points here, there's some significance here in Pittsburgh. It's something I'll always remember."

Wild forward Parise skates, working toward return

Saturday, 11.21.2015 / 5:53 PM / News

Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise was on the ice during the morning skate Saturday and could return to play as soon as Wednesday at the Vancouver Canucks.

The Wild game Saturday against the Nashville Predators (8 p.m., ET; FS-TN, FS-N) will be Parise's seventh missed with an MCL sprain; he hasn't played since Nov. 5.

Wild coach Mike Yeo said Parise was scheduled to meet with doctors on Saturday to see if he would be cleared for contact.

"It's the first step obviously, and I talked to him out there, and it's very different from the controlled skates that he's been in," Yeo told the Wild website. "Morning skates are pretty light."

Injured Sharks forward Couture skates in full gear

Saturday, 11.21.2015 / 1:30 PM / News

San Jose Sharks forward Logan Couture skated Saturday in full gear for the first time since having surgery to repair a fractured fibula on Oct. 17.

Couture was injured during practice on Oct. 15. The Sharks announced a time frame of 4-6 weeks for his return.

Couture, who skated Thursday in Philadelphia wearing sweatpants, worked out after the Sharks ended the morning skate Saturday prior to playing the Pittsburgh Penguins at Consol Energy Center (7 p.m. ET; ROOT, CSN-CA).

"That was the first day of skating pretty good, just doing some conditioning," Couture told CSN. "It's cliché, but it's day-by-day. [If] it reacts well we go a step further. I couldn't tell you what the plan is for tomorrow yet."

NEW YORK -- Carey Price's first game in three weeks went as expected for the Montreal Canadiens goalie. Some good, some bad, and a win.

"When you're out of action for a while it takes a bit of time to catch up," Price said after making 33 saves in a 5-3 win against the New York Islanders at Barclays Center on Friday. "Definitely a good game to get your feet wet again."

Price hadn't played since Oct. 29. Mike Condon started nine consecutive games with Price out of the lineup because of a lower-body injury.

Hockey skills of Texans' Watt impressive to NFL foe

Friday, 11.20.2015 / 12:04 PM / News

Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt has impressed during his NFL career with his ability to rush the passer. The Texans' opponent this week, the New York Jets, are also impressed by his ability to rush the puck.

D'Brickashaw Ferguson, an offensive lineman for the Jets who could face Watt a lot Sunday, told in a story published Friday that beyond the All-Pro accolades Watt has received for his play on the field, it's his hockey abilities that stood out.

Ferguson had seen a video posted to YouTube of Watt at a University of Wisconsin summer hockey event. Watt picks up the puck at center ice, skates to just above the hash marks, pulls up and rockets a slap shot into the net as the goalie jumped out of the way.

Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin scored his 484th career goal in a 3-2 loss to the Dallas Stars and passed Sergei Fedorov, who was recently inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame, for the most goals by a Russian-born player in NHL history. Ovechkin reached the milestone in his 777th career game, 471 fewer than Fedorov played in his NHL career (1,248 GP).

* Earlier this season, Ovechkin (484-428—912) became the fourth Russian-born player to reach 900 NHL points, following Fedorov (483-696—1,179), Alexander Mogilny (473-559—1,032) and Alex Kovalev (430-599—1,029).

* Fedorov was wearing a Capitals uniform when he overtook Mogilny for the most goals by a Russian-born player, scoring goals No. 474 and 475 in Washington's 6-5 overtime win at Dallas on Oct. 25, 2008, the same opponent Ovechkin faced Thursday.

Alex Ovechkin becomes top Russian goal-scorer

WASHINGTON -- When Alex Ovechkin scored his 484th NHL goal Thursday against the Dallas Stars at Verizon Center, breaking a tie with Sergei Fedorov for most goals by a Russian-born player, the pass came from Nicklas Backstrom.

Seven years ago, Backstrom did the same for Fedorov.

Ovechkin's record-setting goal came against the Stars, just as Fedorov's did on Oct. 25, 2008. Fedorov played 70 games with the Capitals at the end of his NHL career and is a mentor and friend to Ovechkin.

"Without my teammates I would never accomplish that," Ovechkin said. "Good moment, but unfortunately we lost the game."
