Friday, 10.02.2015 / 3:45 PM / News

The Detroit Red Wings today agreed to terms with Evgeny Svechnikov on a three-year, entry-level contract.

The 6-foot-2, 199-lb., winger made his NHL preseason debut with the Red Wings on Sept. 22 at Chicago before returning to the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

2015 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off Prohibited Items

Friday, 10.02.2015 / 10:46 AM / 2015 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off

2015 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off screening guidelines/guidance are listed below.

In order to increase the efficiency of the screening process, fans should keep the following in mind before they arrive at the venue entrance:

- Minimize the number of personal items you bring to the venue.

- Remove from your clothing and belongings all items that may trigger a hand wand's alarm.

- Hold those items in your hand or, as a better option, place them in a gallon-size clear bag.

In most cases, security screeners will have plastic bins into which those items can be placed while fans are being screened by security using hand wands.

- If the an alarm sounds, you will be subject to a secondary screening, which may slow your entry into the venue.

The NHL bag policy has not changed: ALL PERMITTED BAGS MUST BE THOROUGHLY SEARCHED. (Some venues may provide separate screening lanes for patrons without bags.)

Daily fantasy advice for DraftKings NHL contests

Pete Jensen - Fantasy Insider

From television and Internet advertisements to social media trends and even subway billboards, daily fantasy sports surrounds us every day. It's the wave of the future.

Every day is a new season in #DFS (the popular hashtag used to distinguish this fantasy format), so it doesn't warrant the level of commitment of traditional season-long leagues. Daily contests involve far greater attention to injuries, starting goalie updates and line combinations leading up to games, because it all comes down to performance on the night of the contest you join. Once the puck drops, you're glued to your smartphone or laptop for scoring plays involving your players.

Predators expect familiarity, defense to take them far

Friday, 10.02.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015-2016 Season Preview

Robby Stanley - Correspondent continues its preview of the 2015-16 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams.

NASHVILLE -- The Nashville Predators had a breakout 2014-15 after missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs the two previous seasons, finishing second in the Central Division with 104 points but they were eliminated by the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference First Round.

The Predators' offseason consisted of a few minor moves, mainly to add depth to their forward group.

"I'm really glad we only made a couple of potential changes to our roster because we've made so many changes in the past several years," Predators general manager David Poile said. "I liked our team last year; I like our team this year. You talk about parity, there is no question there's a lot of parity in the National Hockey League. I think there's a lot of good teams. The good news is, I think we're one of those good teams."

Hodgson, Arvidsson among Predators' X-factors

Robby Stanley - Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- The Nashville Predators didn't get much offensive production from their third line last season, but they're hoping some new additions will change that in 2015-16.

The forwards are the biggest question mark in Nashville, but they performed well in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs and should get plenty of scoring chances playing in coach Peter Laviolette's up-tempo system.

Here are three X-factors that will impact whether the Predators can build on last season and make a run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs:

Super 16: Fast, skilled, experienced Lightning at top

Friday, 10.02.2015 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

This is the preseason edition of the Super 16. It will return on Oct. 16, nine days after the start of the regular season, and will run every Friday for the duration of the season.

Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos' words at the time he said them, last month during the NHL's Player Media Tour, a week before training camps would get going, seemed like nothing more than an elite player trying to stay humble about his clearly impressive team.

"The goal should just be the same as it was last year, just getting to the [Stanley Cup] Playoffs," Stamkos told "It's so hard now that it's wrong to start thinking we made it to the [Stanley Cup] Final and we'll be right back in that position."

Sabres' Bylsma primed to win Jack Adams Award

It's become a habit to dismiss the Buffalo Sabres and any iota of a chance they have of reaching the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They've averaged a shade over 21 wins the past three seasons, and in each of the previous two finished at or near the bottom of the NHL in most offensive and special-team categories.

But there are precedents of teams making quantum leaps in the NHL standings. The Montreal Canadiens ascended from the Eastern Conference basement to a first-place finish in the Northeast Division in 2013. A season later, the Colorado Avalanche rose from 29th in the League (39 points in 48 games) to 112 points and the Central Division title. An extreme example is the 1992-93 San Jose Sharks, whose 58-point jump from the season before remains the biggest turnaround in League history.

A 58-point jump is asking too much, but there's no denying the excitement in Buffalo, where there are expectations for the Sabres to make noise in the East. The additions of Evander Kane, Jack Eichel and Ryan O'Reilly fortified a group of forwards that already included Tyler Ennis, Matt Moulson, Zemgus Girgensons and Sam Reinhart, putting them in position to significantly increase their NHL-worst 153 goals from last season. Defenseman Cody Franson, who signed a two-year contract Sept. 10, should spark a power play that finished 30th at 13.4 percent.

How West's playoff outsiders get back in postseason

Friday, 10.02.2015 / 3:00 AM / 2015-2016 Season Preview

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor continues its preview of the 2015-16 season, which begins Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Summer may be the most enjoyable time of the season for many people, but NHL teams want to put off its start for as long as possible.

For the six Western Conference teams that missed out on the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoff party, their goal since the second week of April has been figuring out how to extend their seasons into May -- or even June, like the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.

So how can the teams that missed the fun turn into postseason hits? With the regular season nearing its start, today examines why fans of the unlucky six can hold on to their playoff hopes:

Lightning ready to make another run at Stanley Cup

Corey Long - Correspondent continues its preview of the 2015-16 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams.

TAMPA -- The Tampa Bay Lightning will enter the 2015-16 season with high expectations and a lot of familiar faces.

The majority of the roster that lost the Stanley Cup Final in six games to the Chicago Blackhawks will return with a chance to make another deep run in the playoffs.

With a core of young stars and strong depth across the board, there is plenty of reason for optimism about the Lightning.

He plays the way that we want to play and he's a leader on the ice. It's those components we feel were the dynamic of what we wanted in our captain.
