Ryan McDonagh is ready to be captain of the New York Rangers, the defenseman told the New York Daily News.

The Rangers have been without a captain since trading Ryan Callahan to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Martin St. Louis on March 5.

"I think I've progressed into being a go-to guy, someone teammates can look up to and someone they can count on,” McDonagh told Pat Leonard of the Daily News on Friday. "I think guys see I'm willing to do whatever it takes to win… [Being captain] is a big responsibility, too. It's not just about on the ice but how you carry yourself off of it and represent the organization."

Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick has not suffered any setbacks in his recovery from offseason wrist surgery and it's hopeful he will be ready to start the 2014-15 season, general manager Dean Lombardi told the Los Angeles Times.

"It's going to go right down to the wire but we think we're fine," Lombardi said Friday, noting Quick has just started to face shots. "We've got [Martin] Jones if we have to go short-term."

At the time of the surgery in late June, the Kings said Quick sustained the injury during their seven-game series win against the Anaheim Ducks in the Western Conference Second Round. Quick still went on to start all 26 games for the Kings as they won the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons.

Devils' Clowe hoping to be cleared for start of camp

Friday, 09.12.2014 / 10:02 AM / News

NHL.com

New Jersey Devils forward Ryane Clowe has been on the ice with teammates for informal workouts, but isn't sure he'll be with the team when training camp opens Sept. 19.

Clowe hasn't played since March 31, when he sustained a concussion during a game against the Florida Panthers. He told NorthJersey.com that he will see a concussion specialist prior to taking his training camp physical and is hoping for a clean bill of health from both exams.

"I feel pretty good," Clowe said Thursday. "I'm not going to say if I'm ready to go or not because I've got to get cleared to play and I've got to see the doctor again before the season starts. But I feel good. I, obviously, haven't done any contact. I've been skating the last few weeks, just scrimmaging since I got back with the guys. I've been on the ice and stuff.

"The biggest thing with me is, when we start practicing, if I get some contact in then and just go from there. I've been feeling pretty good. I've been working out pretty normal the last, I guess, month."

Ovechkin to start Capitals camp at left wing: report

Friday, 09.12.2014 / 8:38 AM / News

NHL.com

Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has experienced success on the right wing during the past two seasons, but new coach Barry Trotz said he plans on putting him back at left wing to start training camp next week, CSN Washington reported Thursday.

Ovechkin scored an NHL-leading 51 goals in 2013-14 and had 83 goals in 126 games at right wing under former coach Adam Oates. Trotz told CSN he expects to use Ovechkin on either wing during the season, but he'll begin camp Sept. 19 at left wing.

"Going into camp I'd probably say I'm leaning more to left than right," Trotz said. "He moves his feet better on that side, he's able to go laterally better. I want to play him more on that side but I want to clean up some things in his own end to allow him to play that side."

NEW YORK -- The National Hockey League announced today a series of rules changes for the 2014-15 season, following approval earlier in the summer by the League's Board of Governors and the National Hockey League Players' Association:

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
