Stadium Series rink construction set to get underway

Eric Gilmore - NHL.com Correspondent

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Dan Craig, the NHL's senior director of facilities operations, was able to take a deep breath Monday.

The NHL's state-of the-art mobile ice making and monitoring unit arrived on schedule at Levi's Stadium after a four-and-a-half day, 3,300-mile trip. Work can begin on time to build a rink for the 2015 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game between the San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings on Feb. 21.

Instead of taking a more direct route to Santa Clara, the massive truck and 53-foot trailer traveled a southern path from Toronto to avoid the potential of getting stopped in mountain passes by snow storms. That added an extra 500 miles to the trip.

Canadiens' Ruel was a teacher unlike any other

Monday, 02.09.2015 / 2:55 PM / News

Serge Touchette  - Special to NHL.com

He had one eye, but few hockey men could see as far, or as clearly, when it came to unearthing new talent.

The Montreal Canadiens lost a rare bird, an unsung hero, Monday when Claude Ruel died at the age of 76.

Ruel, who went blind in one eye when he was hit by a puck playing junior hockey in 1958, wore many hats in the Canadiens organization. He was a scout, a coach, a scout again, and a coach again. But most importantly, Ruel played a significant role in developing the best young players in the Canadiens organization in the 1970s and 1980s. He was a teacher of the highest order, the likes of which rarely has been seen.

Blue Jackets' Hartnell to play in 1,000th career game

Monday, 02.09.2015 / 1:45 PM / NHL Insider

Craig Merz - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Monday will be a big deal for Columbus Blue Jackets forward Scott Hartnell, when he plays his 1,000th NHL regular-season game, against the Los Angeles Kings.

His parents, three siblings, a couple of nephews and a few friends from his hometown of Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, will be in attendance at Nationwide Arena for the feat.

"I'm happy my whole family will be coming down and be part of the special day," he told NHL.com last week. "It will be neat to have everyone share that milestone."

The Hartnell clan and others had dinner Sunday night in Columbus to celebrate his career.

"It was a really special evening," Hartnell said.

Being surrounded by those closest to him will be in contrast to how his NHL career began, Oct. 6, 2000, as an 18 year-old with the Nashville Predators.

Canadiens Cup champion coach Ruel dies at 76

Monday, 02.09.2015 / 12:29 PM / News

NHL.com

Claude Ruel, who was part of seven Stanley Cup championships with the Montreal Canadiens, died Monday at age 76.

"It's with sadness that we learned the passing of Claude Ruel, a great builder in our franchise history," Canadiens owner Geoff Molson wrote on his verified Twitter account. "My condolences to the Ruel family."

Ruel was the Canadiens' director of scouting when he was elevated to coach for the 1968-69 season, replacing Toe Blake. He guided the Canadiens to the best record in the League with 103 points. They swept the New York Rangers in the quarterfinals and beat the Boston Bruins in six games in the semifinals. In the Cup Final the Canadiens swept the St. Louis Blues.

The Canadiens missed the playoffs the following season, and he resigned 23 games into the 1970-71 season.

In 1975 he returned to the Canadiens as director of player development and served in that role until 1995, with the exception of the 1979-80 and 1980-81 seasons, when he went back to coaching the team. He was part of Canadiens teams that won the Stanley Cup four straight times between 1976 and 1979, and again in 1986 and 1993.

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.

— Predators defenseman Seth Jones after Nashville was eliminated by Chicago in Game 6 on Saturday
