Blues forward Tarasenko thriving in clutch situations

Wednesday, 11.04.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

Ken Hitchcock just threw the number out there off the top of his head.

Of course, the St. Louis Blues coach has so much information packed into that head, maybe it shouldn't be that surprising.

But when talking recently about his offensive leader, right wing Vladimir Tarasenko, Hitchcock made an observation about Tarasenko's scoring tendencies that appeared to be an estimate.

It wasn't.

"Those goals he scores, even if there's just 30 or whatever, I guarantee you two-thirds of them will be important goals again," Hitchcock said. "That's critical for us."

And that's bad news for the Chicago Blackhawks, who will host the Blues in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

Angela Ruggiero emerged as the United States' finest defenseman during her 15-year career that resulted in her becoming the fourth woman inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Ruggiero won four Olympic medals, including gold at the 1998 Nagano Games, and is one of five U.S. players to compete in four Olympics (Jenny Potter, Julie Chu, Chris Chelios and Keith Tkachuk). She also helped Harvard win a national championship in 1999 and was named the country's top women's collegiate hockey player in 2004.

Ruggiero's extraordinary accomplishments also earned her entry into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame on Dec. 17.

Jon Lane - Staff Writer takes a look at each of the seven individuals who will be inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto on Nov. 9.

Angela Ruggiero was 15 in the summer of 1995 when she reported to Lake Placid, N.Y., to try out for the inaugural United States junior national women's team. She caught the eye of Ben Smith, the women's coach at Northeastern University who had been asked by USA Hockey to select a group to play in a friendly series against Finland.

Ruggiero was a bit green, Smith recalled, playing with women in their 20s and early 30s. But there was something about her that reminded him of arguably the finest defenseman in NHL history.

Oilers forward McDavid out long-term with injury

DMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers will be without center Connor McDavid after the No. 1 selection in the 2015 NHL Draft sustained a long-term, upper-body injury on Tuesday.

McDavid went crashing into the end boards after taking a shot on net late in the second period of a 4-2 win against the Philadelphia Flyers at Rexall Place.

Oilers coach Todd McLellan confirmed McDavid would be out long-term. General manager Peter Chiarelli is expected to provide an update on McDavid's status Wednesday.

McDavid came down the left wing, shot, was checked, fell, and slid into the end boards with 1:44 remaining in the second. He was being defended by Flyers defensemen Brandon Manning and Michael Del Zotto.

"He's disappointed, it's disappointing to get injured," McLellan said. "It's his rookie year, things are going really well and he wants to be part of the group, which he still will be, just not in a uniform for a little while. I have a 19-year-old, I can't imagine how he would feel if he was in the NHL in his first year and got hurt."

Bruins forward Kelly out 6-8 months after leg injury

Matt Kalman - Correspondent

BOSTON -- Boston Bruins forward Chris Kelly is expected to miss 6-8 months after fracturing his left femur in the first period of a 5-3 loss to the Dallas Stars at TD Garden on Tuesday.

Kelly left 1:40 into the game and was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital. He will have surgery Wednesday.

Kelly, who had two goals in 11 games, was not hit before he went down near the Stars bench and grasped his left leg.

"Well, you hope we can somehow compensate for his loss, but I think people are going to realize how important he is to our hockey club, not just on the ice but also in the dressing room and around the team," Bruins coach Claude Julien. "He's a guy that is extremely respected by his teammates, and on the ice he's given us everything we've asked for.

"He's been moved around in all different positions, never says a word, but just thrives on the opportunity to play in those spots that we've put him. He was a very versatile player that we really counted on. No doubt he'll be missed."
