Hall of Fame forward Elmer Lach dies at 97

Saturday, 04.04.2015 / 11:32 AM / News

NHL.com

Elmer Lach, a Hockey Hall of Fame member who won the Hart Trophy in 1945 while centering the famous "Punch Line" with Maurice Richard and Toe Blake, and helped the Montreal Canadiens win the Stanley Cup three times, died Saturday at age 97, the Canadiens announced.

Lach was born in Nokomis, Saskatchewan, on Jan. 22, 1918. He played 14 seasons in the NHL, all with Montreal, before retiring after the 1953-54 season. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1966.

"The National Hockey League deeply mourns the passing of Elmer Lach -- center on Montreal's legendary 'Punch Line' with Toe Blake and Maurice Richard, owner of the sole assist on Richard's 50th goal in 50 games in 1944-45 and someone who, at 97 years of age, was just a few months younger than the League itself," NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said in a statement. "The League sends heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of this three-time Stanley Cup champion, two-time scoring champion and 1945 Hart Trophy winner."

Vancouver Canucks goalie Ryan Miller practiced Friday for the first time since he sustained a knee  injury almost six weeks ago.

Miller, who was injured Feb. 22 against the New York Islanders when teammate Jannik Hansen crashed into him, is not ready to return to game action, coach Willie Desjardins told the Canucks website after practice in Winnipeg.

"It's exciting to finally get back, even if it's just practicing and going to meetings," Miller said. "At home, I've been around the rink and being a part of everything I can be a part of, but it's tough, guys are in game mode and are making the push here, so I try to stay out of their way.

"So it's nice to just be back in the locker room and feel like I'm a part of everything, especially this great time of year."

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH –- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin will not play Saturday against the Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena.

Malkin, who leads Pittsburgh with 28 goals and is second with 70 points, will miss a second consecutive game with an undisclosed injury, Penguins coach Mike Johnston said. Malkin could return Sunday against the Philadelphia Flyers.

"I think anytime you can have Geno in the lineup, you want Geno in the lineup, for sure," Johnston said. "With a back-to-back coming off an injury, especially a nagging injury, we knew coming into the weekend, that if he is able to play, it was probably only going to be one game. We'll see how he recovers from the skate today and hope he'll be able to play on Sunday.

"But we'll see."
