Blackhawks' Keith skates for first time since surgery

Sunday, 11.08.2015 / 2:43 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- Duncan Keith, the Chicago Blackhawks' top defenseman and reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner, skated during a full team workout for the first time since having surgery Oct. 20 to repair a torn right meniscus.

Keith skated the previous couple days with other Blackhawks making their way back from injuries.

"I'm feeling good," said Keith, who had two assists in six games before the surgery. "Obviously I don't think the leg is as strong as it needs to be, but I definitely feel pretty good for not skating [in a few weeks]. Trainers have helped a lot in preparing to get on the ice. It's a quick turnaround. I try to do a lot of different things to be ready to go, so hopefully it can happen sooner."

1989 NHL Draft defined Red Wings for decades

Sunday, 11.08.2015 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

The run by the Detroit Red Wings as the most dominant team in the NHL for the better part of two decades gained its momentum in 1989 on the floor of an arena that is no longer in service. It is a tale combining enough good fortune, skill, conviction and intrigue to power a best-selling page-turner.

Looking back on it now, 26 years later, Hockey Hall of Fame executive Jim Devellano, the Detroit general manager at the time, keeps coming back to the same thought about the historic draft that moved the Red Wings indelibly forward.

"I don't think there was a better draft in the history of hockey than our draft, the Red Wings' draft, in '89," Devellano said. "I'm also here to tell you there was some luck involved."

Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Noah Hanifin doesn't sound like a rookie when he begins breaking down the game he loves.

The fifth pick in the 2015 NHL Draft is a rookie on paper, but his performance on the ice is proving otherwise. Hanifin is also mature enough to realize his limits in the locker room among those who have been there and done that.

"You can tell by the conversations you have with him that he's a very mature boy for an 18-year-old," Hurricanes assistant coach Steve Smith said. "He asks all the right questions and goes through the exercises on the ice on a daily basis without any resistance at all.

Heading to Hall, Pronger could run NHL team someday

Sunday, 11.08.2015 / 3:00 AM / Hall of Fame

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Chris Pronger will be one of seven individuals be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto on Nov. 9.

When injuries prevented Chris Pronger from helping the Philadelphia Flyers on the ice, Paul Holmgren found a way to take advantage of Pronger's advanced hockey intellect off it.

A two-season, part-time scouting job started the former defenseman on a path that could lead to him being heavily involved with running an NHL team.

"It interests me, absolutely," Pronger said. "It's something I'm definitely interested in doing down the line."

Pronger's strength, skill built Hall of Fame career

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NHL.com takes a look at each of the seven individuals who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto on Nov. 9.

At a scouting combine in Toronto prior to the 1993 NHL Draft, Ray Shero noticed a tall, lanky defenseman from Peterborough of the Ontario Hockey League unable to move the 135-pound bar at the bench-press station.

Shero, at the time an assistant general manager for the Ottawa Senators, remembers thinking the 18-year-old's inability to do a bench press wasn't going to hurt his NHL chances.

Shero was right.

BUZZER BEATERS

Of the 11 games contested Saturday, four featured a team scoring a tying or go-ahead goal late in the third period en route to victory (WSH: 19:59; MTL: 18:52; CAR: 19:56; and BUF: 19:43). Elias says there have been eight tying or go-ahead goals scored in the final minute of regulation this season, with the scoring team holding a 6-0-2 record in those contests.

* Nicklas Backstrom tied the game with 1.7 seconds left in regulation and Alex Ovechkin tallied the lone shootout goal to help the Washington Capitals (10-3-0, 20 points) equal the best 13-game start to a season in franchise history (1991-92: 10-3-0, 20 points).

* David Desharnais broke a 2-2 deadlock with 1:08 left on the clock – his second consecutive game-winning goal – to rally the Montreal Canadiens past the Boston Bruins for their League-leading 13th win of the season, continuing their best start in their 98-year NHL history.

Ovechkin ties Fedorov for goals by Russian player

Sunday, 11.08.2015 / 12:28 AM / News

Katie Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

WASHINGTON -- Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin scored his 483rd NHL goal Saturday to tie Sergei Fedorov for the most by a Russian-born player.

He almost passed him.

Ovechkin scored a third-period goal that would have tied the game against the Toronto Maple Leafs but it was disallowed after a coach's challenge for goaltender interference.

"Still have one to pass the tie," Ovechkin said. "If not today, tomorrow."

Actually Tuesday, when the Capitals next play at the Detroit Red Wings, where Fedorov spent much of his career (7:30 p.m. ET; TVA Sports, FS-D, CSN-DC+).

Washington center Nicklas Backstrom tied the game Saturday with 0.8 seconds remaining in the third. Ovechkin scored in the fourth round of the shootout, and the Capitals defeated the Maple Leafs 3-2 at Verizon Center.

Hall inductees share memories, humor at Fan Forum

Saturday, 11.07.2015 / 5:15 PM / Hall of Fame

TORONTO -- Phil Housley recalled the hit, being stunned by it, by Sergei Fedorov.

"It was probably the only time I didn't see him," Housley said during the annual Fan Forum Q&A at the Hockey Hall of Fame on Saturday.

Fedorov is most known for being one of the greatest skaters in NHL history, for his fluid motion, for making his white Nike skates look like a blur on the ice. But he could pack a wallop. He could hit. Years and years of the rigorous Russian training regimen made him powerful.

"He reminds me of somebody that just attacks the game," Housley said of Fedorov.

Fedorov also remembers hitting Housley. He called it an accident.

"I hit him, but we both can agree it was his fault," Fedorov said, bringing laughter from the crowd of mostly Red Wings fans inside the Esso Great Hall. "It was an accident because Phil was impossible to hit because he was so smooth. We both understood it was his fault."

That's only a snippet of the memories and stories that were shared during the Fan Forum. It was, as it has been during every Hall of Fame weekend for the past 16 years, an informative, entertaining and hilarious hour with the player inductees.

The five this year -- Fedorov, Housley, Nicklas Lidstrom, Chris Pronger and Angela Ruggiero -- participated in the event, which has been a tradition since 1999, when Wayne Gretzky asked the Hall to create something so he could interact with the fans during his induction weekend.
