P.K. Subban excited about larger role at NHL Awards

Tuesday, 06.23.2015 / 11:54 PM / 2015 NHL Awards

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

LAS VEGAS -- Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban is not only nominated for the Norris Trophy at this year's NHL Awards show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Wednesday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports), but he will be an important part of the broadcast for a second consecutive year.

Subban will be the host of the Samsung NHL Social Lounge, interviewing players backstage and checking out what is trending on social media. It is a step up from last year's job when Subban hosted the red carpet arrivals of the players prior to the ceremony.

With his role escalating, it would be fair to wonder if Subban is preparing a bid to actually host the show one year.

LAS VEGAS -- New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said on Tuesday that the latest report he received from team doctors revealed that forward Mats Zuccarello is progressing well in his recovery from a brain contusion and hairline fracture of his skull.

"I got an email from our medical staff last week, everything is coming along fine and he should be 100 percent, I was told, by the beginning of August," Vigneault said.

Zuccarello sustained the injury when he was struck in the head by defenseman Ryan McDonagh's slap shot in the first period of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference First Round against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

LAS VEGAS -- Kris Letang said Tuesday he will be ready for the start of Pittsburgh Penguins training camp for the 2015-16 season.

Letang missed the final seven games of the regular season and the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs after sustaining a concussion March 28 against the Arizona Coyotes

"Without a doubt, I am going to be ready for training camp; no doubt about that," the 28-year-old defenseman said during media availability for the 2015 NHL Awards, which are Wednesday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports).

Letang, a finalist for the Masterton Trophy, has been working out since he was cleared by Penguins doctors to return to physical activity June 1.

Senators GM Murray set to trade Lehner or Anderson

LAS VEGAS -- Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray still intends to trade one of his goaltenders, either Robin Lehner or Craig Anderson, but does not know if it will happen at the 2015 NHL Draft that begins Friday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports) and ends Saturday (10 a.m. ET, NHLN-US, SN1, TVA Sports).

But whenever it happens, Murray already knows the trade will not sit well with him.

"It's not going to be a satisfactory deal, there's no question," Murray said following the general managers' meeting Tuesday. "I'm not going to get what I think I should get."

Murray said the teams inquiring about his goaltenders have tended to be more interested in Lehner, 23, than Anderson, 34, and he anticipates Lehner is the more likely of the two to be traded. Whoever is left in Ottawa will claim the starter's role, with this season's sensation, Andrew Hammond, serving as backup.

Forward Beleskey unlikely to re-sign with Ducks

Tuesday, 06.23.2015 / 11:27 PM / NHL Free Agency 2015

Matt Beleskey is expected to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1 after rejecting a contract offer from the Anaheim Ducks.

"We made an offer and they rejected it immediately," Ducks general manager Bob Murray said Tuesday. "So, I don't think there's anything else happening there. I said that when we kept him at the trade deadline, that I doubted it was going to work, and they obviously feel they're going to do a lot better.

"I'm very comfortable with the offer we made, we made a really good offer, and it's just a part of hockey now."

LAS VEGAS -- The Board of Governors will vote during their meeting Wednesday on recommendations from the League's general managers to change the overtime format to 3-on-3 for five minutes and to expand video replay to include a coach's challenge on goals scored off of potential offside or goalie-interference plays.

If the recommendations are approved by the Board of Governors, they will go into effect for the start of the 2015-16 regular season.

Price driven by desire to lift Canadiens to Stanley Cup

Tuesday, 06.23.2015 / 8:33 PM / 2015 NHL Awards

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

LAS VEGAS -- For years, as criticism surrounded Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price at a young age, he told people to be patient.

A goaltender's prime normally doesn't begin until his late 20s, Price would say over and over as he fielded questions about the inconsistency in his game earlier in his career.

Price turns 28 in August.

He was right.

After years of doubt about his long-term potential to become an elite NHL goalie, Price had a season for the ages and is in line to have that performance rewarded here Wednesday at the NHL Awards (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN, TVA Sports).

Lightning's Bishop hits four HRs before Rays game

Tuesday, 06.23.2015 / 8:04 PM / News

Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop hit four home runs, including two in a row, in batting practice before the Tampa Bay Rays faced the Toronto Blue Jays at Tropicana Field in Tampa on Tuesday.

"I got a couple lucky swings," Bishop said, according to The Associated Press. "You can definitely feel it when you hit it on the sweet spot and it goes. It was fun."

Bishop missed Game 4 of the 2015 Stanley Cup Final against the Chicago Blackhawks because of a groin injury, but he ran the bases after his first home run over the left-field wall.

"I was tired after I got about to third base," Bishop said. "I feel healthier. Definitely feeling better. It's getting better every day."

LAS VEGAS -- Calgary Flames captain Mark Giordano said he will be ready to go for training camp in September after missing the last quarter of the regular season and Calgary's two-round run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs because of surgery to repair a torn biceps tendon.

Giordano was injured on Feb. 25 in a game against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center. He led all defensemen with 48 points through 61 games at the time he was injured.

"I feel almost 100 percent, it's just a strength thing now," Giordano said Tuesday. "As far as the repair it went really well. Just trying to get strong again."

LAS VEGAS -- San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns is enjoying his summer, including a trip here to attend the 2015 NHL Awards show.

The Sharks missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2003 and their general manager, Doug Wilson, has implied that it will be a summer of changes in San Jose.

Quote of the Day

[Stamkos] is a great teammate and a great leader, that's why he's got the 'C'. He brings that tremendous work ethic to the rink and he's one of the top players in the game. I know if I put the passes where they are supposed to be, there's a very good chance he's going to put it in the back of the net.

— Lightning forward Jonathan Drouin on linemate Steven Samkos
