Kessel excited to get started with Penguins

Friday, 09.18.2015 / 9:23 PM / News

NHL.com

Phil Kessel finally took the ice with the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday, though he'll have to wait a little longer to play with Sidney Crosby.

"It feels great," the speedy right wing said after the opening day of training camp, according to the team website. "Obviously it was a good first day out there, I got some work in. Just ready to go this year."

Kessel, acquired from the Toronto Maple Leafs on July 1, did line rushes in the morning with Matt Cullen and Conor Sheary. However, coach Mike Johnston has said he'll start the preseason playing on the right side on a line centered by Crosby. The Penguins said Thursday that Kessel will make his preseason debut against the Carolina Hurricanes at Consol Energy Center on Tuesday.

Canadiens' Pacioretty voted captain by teammates

BROSSARD, Quebec -- The role of a captain in today's NHL may be somewhat diminished from what it once was. But being named captain of the oldest and most storied franchise in the League is still special, and it is a role that is different than any other captain.

Not necessarily better or more important. Just different.

The weight of having that letter "C" on his jersey was evident on the face of Montreal Canadiens left wing Max Pacioretty on Friday as he spoke about how honored he was to wear it, how humbled he was to join the 28 previous captains in franchise history and how seriously he plans on taking the responsibility.

"In my mind it is the biggest honor," Pacioretty said. "I just can't believe that I'll be put in the same category as the people before me. I really am honored, and that's what is the most shocking part about this for me; that I don't believe I belong in the same sentence as any of those 28 other captains."

Patrick Kane addresses media at training camp

Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane reported to training camp Thursday and spoke publicly for the first time since being placed under investigation for an incident at his offseason home last month.

Kane reported with his teammates to the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., to begin training camp for the 2015-16 season.

Flanked by Blackhawks president John McDonough, general manager Stan Bowman and coach Joel Quenneville at a podium, Kane read a prepared statement:

"This has been an incredibly difficult time for many people. I cannot apologize enough for the distraction this has caused my family, my teammates, this incredible organization, and of course, our fans. While I have too much respect for the legal process to comment on an ongoing matter, I am confident, that once all the facts are brought to light, I will be absolved of having done anything wrong."

BROSSARD, Quebec -- P.K. Subban made his boss proud.

Montreal Canadiens owner and president Geoff Molson said Thursday he was impressed by Subban's commitment of a $10 million donation to the Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation, and that it allowed many people to see a side of the star defenseman they might not have known before.

Molson was asked if Subban will be looked at differently now that he has added the position of philanthropist to his resume.

"As a hockey player, no, as a person, probably yes," Molson said Thursday at a press conference to announce a real estate project. "He spoke from the heart [Wednesday] and it was impressive. We learned a lot about P.K. [Wednesday]."

Going to the Islanders are forwards Carter Verhaeghe and Taylor Beck, defensemen Tom Nilsson and Matthew Finn, and goaltender Christopher Gibson.

Grabner, 27, was limited to 34 games last season because of injuries; he missed the first two months of the season recovering from surgery to repair a sports hernia sustained during preseason. He had eight goals and 13 points in the regular season and played in two Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Heatley, 34, was born in Freiburg, Germany, and was selected by the Atlanta Thrashers with the second pick in the 2000 NHL Draft. He won the Calder Trophy in 2002 after scoring 26 goals and 67 points in 82 games.

McDavid puts on show in home debut with Oilers

Thursday, 09.17.2015 / 1:00 AM / News

Derek Van Diest - NHL.com Correspondent

EDMONTON -- Connor McDavid put on a show Wednesday for the 14,434 fans who turned out to see his first game at Rexall Place.

McDavid assisted on three goals to lead the Edmonton Oilers rookies to a 6-3 victory against the two-time Canadian national champion University of Alberta Golden Bears in their annual exhibition game.

The first 24 games in the series were played at the 2,700-seat Clare Drake Arena on the Golden Bears' campus. But with McDavid, the first player taken in the 2015 NHL Draft, as the main attraction, the game was moved to the longtime home of the Oilers.

McDavid, who sat out the final two of Edmonton's three games at the Young Stars Classic in Penticton, British Columbia, last weekend, said he got a lift from the home crowd. It was McDavid's first game at Rexall Place, though he participated in a rookie scrimmage during the summer that also drew a large crowd.

"Anytime there is that many fans and they're that into the game, and they're that loud, it's pretty special to play in front of," McDavid said. "I thought I was a little bit better, I felt better in terms of legs and all that."
