ST. LOUIS -- New York Rangers defenseman Dan Boyle will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken right hand.

Boyle was injured during the Rangers' season-opening 3-2 victory against the St. Louis Blues at Scottrade Center on Thursday.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Winnipeg Jets lost forward Evander Kane to a lower-body injury early in the first period of their game against the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday.

Capitals celebrate franchise's 40th anniversary

WASHINGTON -- The Washington Capitals began celebrating their 40th anniversary season Thursday when they faced off against the Montreal Canadiens in their season opener at Verizon Center. It was an occasion to savor, considering the franchise's struggles during its first decade.

The Capitals finished last in their division in six of their first eight seasons. Their first-season won-lost mark of 8-67-5 represents the NHL single-season records for fewest wins and points (21) in a season.

The on-ice struggles led to low fan turnout and interest. Owner Abe Pollin threatened relocation.

But the Capitals ultimately stayed in Washington, with a big assist from a September 1982 trade with the Canadiens that brought defenseman and future Hall of Famer Rod Langway to Washington.

"[Craig Laughlin and I] get on the phone to our agents," Langway recalled, "and we said, 'Are we sure we want to be here?'"

Two games which aired Wednesday on Rogers offered a glimpse of new camera angles the network will be showcasing as the NHL's national television partner in Canada.

Wide-angle replays on an aerial camera were able to show how scoring plays can develop from outside the offensive zone, and a camera placed on the helmet of a referee in each game gave fans a unique on-ice vantage point.

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Thursday they have claimed forward Richard Panik off waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Panik, 23, has eight goals and 22 points in 75 games over parts of two seasons with the Lightning, who selected him in the second round (No. 52) of the 2009 NHL Draft.

"It's going to be a great motivation for me to play in front of those fans and just bring my A-game every night," Panik said Thursday, according to Canadian Press. "There's a lot more pressure going there because it's Canada and especially Toronto. I'm just going to focus on my game, and my next step is getting into the lineup and go from there."

Kessel leads fantasy fast-starting performers

Thursday, 10.09.2014 / 11:00 AM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Matt Cubeta - Fantasy Insider

Getting off to a good start in fantasy hockey always is important, especially in rotisserie leagues where it's harder to make up ground as the season progresses. It doesn't hurt to have a strong beginning in head-to-head leagues either, but in this format there is a lot more luck involved and you typically see larger swings in the standings on a week-to-week basis.

Having a strong start won't just help you in the standings; it also could lead to you making trades that improve your roster. Last October St. Louis Blues forward Alexander Steen was one of the best fantasy players in the game, posting an NHL-best 11 goals, as well as five assists, a plus-7 rating and five power-play points in 10 games. He then had 22 goals and 46 points in his next 58 games; still very productive but not nearly as dominant as his October was. Steen could've fallen into the well-known "sell high" group after his fast start and you probably could've gotten a lot in return via trade if you sold him at the right moment.

Heading into this season let's see if we can find the next Steen for you. Here's a look at some interesting October stats and some players that have been known to be dominant forces during the early parts of an NHL season.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
