Callahan, hits and keepers among hot fantasy topics

Matt Cubeta - Fantasy Insider

Let's jump right into the five hottest topics in fantasy hockey right now.

1. Callahan coming through in Tampa Bay

For some strange reason, several fantasy hockey owners have been reaching out to me on Twitter asking about Tampa Bay Lightning forward Ryan Callahan. Whether it's adding him for someone else, or trading him, or whether he can keep his hot streak going, Callahan has been a topic of discussion of late.

I'll say this: I'm a fan of Ryan Callahan. The only issue with him is that he's had difficulty avoiding injuries throughout his career. If he can stay on the ice for the Lightning, I expect an extremely productive fantasy season. He won't reach his current on-pace for stats of 38 goals, 71 points and a plus-28 rating, but he has the ability to score 30-plus with 60 points.

There are three main reasons I'm a believer in Callahan: 1) He skates on a line with Steven Stamkos; 2) He averages 3:30 of power-play ice time per game (six power-play points this season); and 3) He has a solid track record of all-around per-game production over his career.


Blackhawks recall Danault, move Sharp to LTIR

Friday, 11.21.2014 / 11:19 AM / News

The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have recalled forward Phillip Danault from the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League.

Danault, 21, has 10 points (3G, 7A) in 14 games with Rockford this season. The Victoriaville, Quebec, native registered a season-high three points (1G, 2A) on Oct. 31 at San Antonio. He has compiled 38 professional points (9G, 27A) in 98 career games over portions of four seasons, all with the IceHogs. Danault was one of Chicago’s first-round selections (26th overall) in the 2011 National Hockey League Draft.


Maple Leafs loan Booth to AHL for conditioning

Friday, 11.21.2014 / 9:53 AM / News

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced on Friday that forward David Booth has been loaned to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League for conditioning purposes.

Booth, 29, has yet to play a regular season game with the Maple Leafs so far this season. The Michigan native suffered a broken foot after blocking a shot during a pre-season game against the Buffalo Sabres on September 28. Booth has registered 218 points (113 goals, 105 assists) in 443 NHL regular season games.

Super 16: No panic in Blackhawks despite slow start

Friday, 11.21.2014 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - Staff Writer

There are not many franchises in the NHL where a 10-7-1 start to the season would elicit varying degrees of panic amongst the fan base, but the Chicago Blackhawks live in that space in 2014.

The Blackhawks have been one of the best teams in the NHL for seven seasons now, winning the Stanley Cup twice and reaching the Western Conference Final twice in the past six campaigns. There is an expectation to be playing in June 2015, or this season will be considered a failure.

So 21 points in 18 games, which as of Thursday morning was only good enough for ninth place in the West, has set off warning alarms in some homes in the greater Chicagoland area. One person who is not concerned? That would be Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman.


Canadiens silence some whispers with loud statement

MONTREAL -- Max Pacioretty said he didn't hear the chatter, but he knew it was out there.

He knew because his Montreal Canadiens were feeling it.

The Canadiens entered this week atop the NHL standings with a rough stretch of four games staring them directly in the face: The Pittsburgh Penguins and St. Louis Blues at home, the Boston Bruins and New York Rangers in a back-to-back on the road.

It was as stiff a test as they had faced and an opportunity to silence critics saying their hot start was not sustainable, that they didn't belong among the elite teams of the NHL.

In the first leg of that test, the Canadiens did not silence their critics. They empowered them.


Russia holds off QMJHL in Super Series finale

Thursday, 11.20.2014 / 10:10 PM / News

Igor Shesterkin made 12 of his 25 saves in the third period and Russia completed the six-game Subway Super Series by holding off the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League 3-2 in Rimouski, Quebec, on Thursday.

Russia won four of the six games against teams from each of North America's top three junior leagues. The Russians won both games against the Western Hockey League and split two games against the Ontario Hockey League and the QMJHL.


Canadiens trade Bourque to Ducks for Allen

Thursday, 11.20.2014 / 7:55 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

MONTREAL -- For the second time in nine days, Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin freed up some room under the NHL salary cap for next season by acquiring a veteran defenseman.

Bergevin traded forward Rene Bourque, who cleared waivers and was demoted to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League on Nov. 10, to the Anaheim Ducks for defenseman Bryan Allen on Thursday.

The move follows the Nov. 11 trade of forward Travis Moen to the Dallas Stars for defenseman Sergei Gonchar, shedding two contracts with a total salary-cap charge of $5.18 million off the

Canadiens payroll for next season in exchange for two expiring contracts.

"The players who get hurt the most often are defensemen," Bergevin said. "Look at other teams. Boston just went through a tough stretch with their defensemen. We’ve been lucky until now. Having extra defensemen is a luxury, but if you can afford it you have to look at it."


Lindros, LeClair inducted into Flyers Hall of Fame

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

PHILADELPHIA -- With the way Eric Lindros' time with the Philadelphia Flyers ended, many wondered whether he would ever go into the Flyers Hall of Fame.

Lindros, acquired by the Flyers in one of the biggest trades in NHL history, saw his time in Philadelphia end in acrimony and injury. He sat out a season while recovering from a concussion, and then demanded to be traded.

But that 2001 trade to the New York Rangers was a long time ago, and as Lindros said during a press conference Thursday, the passing of time heals all wounds.

That's why Lindros was all smiles Thursday as he and longtime linemate John LeClair were inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame.


Kings' Voynov charged with felony domestic violence

Thursday, 11.20.2014 / 5:32 PM / News

Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov was charged with a felony count of domestic violence on Thursday.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney office charged Voynov with one count of corporal injury to a spouse with great bodily injury.

Arraignment is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 in Department 4 of the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Torrance Branch.

The NHL suspended Voynov with pay immediately after his arrest on Oct. 20.

"We maintain our support of the NHL’s indefinite suspension of Slava Voynov," the Kings said in a statement Thursday. "As an organization we will continue to closely monitor the developments of the legal proceedings and work in partnership with the NHL to determine the proper course of action in the future."

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
