NHL participation in Olympics still to be decided

Saturday, 01.24.2015 / 4:38 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

COLUMBUS -- The decision to bring back the World Cup of Hockey in 2016 does not factor into the NHL's potential participation in the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said Saturday.

"We have had no discussions and made no decision, and this decision has no bearing on whether we will return to the next Olympics," Commissioner Bettman said. "It's something we [the NHL and National Hockey League Players' Association] still have to discuss."

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said there are mitigating factors that are currently preventing the NHL and NHLPA from discussing future Olympic participation, particularly the fact that there is a new president of the International Olympic Committee and the South Korea Olympic Organizing Committee has not weighed in on what it wants in a men's hockey tournament.

Three outdoor games highlight 2015-16 schedule

Saturday, 01.24.2015 / 3:58 PM / News

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

COLUMBUS -- One of hockey's oldest rivalries and two Western Conference cities hosting an NHL outdoor game for the first time will be highlights of the 2015-16 season after NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced the League's upcoming outdoor schedule Saturday at Nationwide Arena.

The Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens will play at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass., on Jan. 1 in the Bridgestone 2016 NHL Winter Classic. There will be two Coors Light Stadium Series games in 2015-16.

The first will be Feb. 21 at TCF Bank Stadium on the campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. That game will feature the Minnesota Wild and the Chicago Blackhawks. Six days later, the Colorado Avalanche and Detroit Red Wings will play at Coors Field in Denver.

This will be the second NHL Winter Classic in Boston. The Bruins played the Philadelphia Flyers at Fenway Park in 2010.

"Those two teams (the Bruins and Canadiens) have played each other more times than they've played any other opponents in their respective history," Bettman said. "The renewal of the rivalry on New Year's Day should be memorable."

McDavid, linemates excel in Top Prospects Game

Thursday, 01.22.2015 / 11:31 PM / News

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

ST. CATHARINES, Ontario -- The focus was on Erie Otters center Connor McDavid at the 2015 BMO CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game at Meridian Centre on Thursday.

But it was his linemates, left wing Timo Meier (Halifax Mooseheads) and right wing Travis Konecny (Ottawa 67's), who combined for three goals and three assists to lead Team Bobby Orr to a 6-0 victory against Team Don Cherry.

"It's the luck of the draw if you click at these games or not," Konecny said. "It's hard coming together but it's definitely not hard playing with [McDavid and Meier]. They make it easier for everyone around them; you just have to wait and when the puck hits your stick put it on net."

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
