Team OHL selected for Canada-Russia series

Wednesday, 10.21.2015 / 1:22 PM / 2016 NHL Draft

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Sarnia defenseman Jakob Chychrun and Mississauga forward Michael McLeod, top prospects for the 2016 NHL Draft, were among the players picked for Team OHL in the 2015 CHL Canada-Russia Series.

Team OHL will play Team Russia on Nov. 12 in Owen Sound, Ontario, and Nov. 16 in Windsor, Ontario. The games are used by Hockey Canada as an evaluation tool for picking the team that will play for Canada at the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Chychrun, who received an A rating from NHL Central Scouting in its September players to watch list, is expected to be one of the top three players picked at the 2016 draft.

Ottawa Senators goaltender Andrew Hammond will make his first start of the season Thursday at home against the New Jersey Devils, Senators assistant coach Andre Tourigny said Wednesday.

Hammond had been recovering from a groin injury sustained before a preseason game against the Montreal Canadiens on Oct. 1.

Last season Hammond, 27, helped lead the Senators into the Stanley Cup Playoffs with a 20-1-2 record, 1.79 goals-against average and .941 save percentage in 24 games. He allowed two or fewer goals in each of his first 12 NHL starts, matching a record set by Boston Bruins goaltender Frank Brimsek in 1938-39.

Fantasy top 60 defensemen: Daley gets opportunity

Every Wednesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey contributor Brian Metzer provides in-depth defenseman analysis. From updated weekly top 60 rankings to trending players and more, Metzer is your go-to guy for fantasy D-men advice all season long.


The Chicago Blackhawks haven't exactly roared out of the gate this season and find themselves sitting at 3-3-0 and in sixth place in the Central Division. If that wasn't bad enough, news broke Tuesday they would be without the services of two-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman Duncan Keith for the next 4-6 weeks after the 2015 Conn Smythe Trophy winner had surgery to repair a right meniscal tear.

If there is anyone who can feel the Blackhawks' pain, it's the countless fantasy hockey owners who used the 47th overall pick on average in Yahoo Standard Leagues to draft Keith, whose ownership sits at 100 percent.

Keith is not easy to replace, and until now it hasn't really been necessary.

Ovechkin reaches another milestone with 900th point

Wednesday, 10.21.2015 / 11:05 AM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Milestones and spectacular moments have become routine for Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin during his 11 NHL seasons.

He did it again Tuesday during a 6-2 victory at the Calgary Flames when he snapped a 1-1 tie 30 seconds into the second period with his fourth goal of the season and 900th NHL point.

"To be honest with you I didn't know I was close [to 900 points]; only one point," Ovechkin said. "I didn't know when I had it. It's a huge milestone. I have to thank my teammates. It's hard to do by yourself in this League. It's a special moment for me and this team. Now we just have to keep going."

Flyers visit Bruins on Wednesday Night Rivalry

Wednesday, 10.21.2015 / 3:00 AM / Tale of the Tape

NHL.com

The Philadelphia Flyers have had less regular-season success against the Boston Bruins than any other team since entering the NHL in 1967. They'll try to snap a six-game losing streak against the Bruins at TD Garden in this week's Wednesday Night Rivalry game (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports).

The Flyers have a .433 point percentage in their 186 regular-season games against the Bruins, by far their lowest against any team, and they haven't won in Boston since a 2-1 victory on Oct. 6, 2011.

The Bruins should be well-rested; they've been off since winning 5-3 at the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday. The Flyers lost 2-1 at home to the Dallas Stars on Tuesday.

Flyers' Medvedev becoming fluent in NHL game

Wednesday, 10.21.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

PHILADELPHIA -- One of the biggest hurdles Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Evgeny Medvedev has had to clear in his adjustment to the NHL is learning to speak English.

Medvedev was taking daily English lessons during training camp but has cut back on them since the regular season started. His teammates have helped fill in some blanks. Sort of.

"He's learned a lot of bad words," forward Jakub Voracek said. "That's a good start."

Medvedev's start has been good on the ice. Heading into the game Wednesday at the Boston Bruins (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TVA Sports), he has one assist and is averaging 17:46 of ice time per game in five games.

Penguins forward Crosby scores first goal of season

Tuesday, 10.20.2015 / 11:03 PM / News

NHL.com

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Sidney Crosby ended a career-long point drought with a power-play goal in the first period against the Florida Panthers at Consol Energy Center on Tuesday.

Crosby's first goal of the season came in his sixth game. He scored at 11:00 off a pass from Evgeni Malkin to give Pittsburgh a 1-0 lead.

"I thought we generated some chances all night and we could've had more, but it was nice to see that first one go in and hopefully I can build off of this one," Crosby said. "You just try to stick with things and try to do the things you normally do, and trust that it will go in. You try to remind yourself that it's not always easy and it goes a while, but like I said, hopefully I can build off of this and put some more in."

Blackhawks' Keith has knee surgery, out 4-6 weeks

Tuesday, 10.20.2015 / 4:16 PM / News

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Blackhawks will be without top defenseman Duncan Keith for an estimated 4-6 weeks after he had surgery Tuesday to repair a meniscal tear in his right knee, according to Blackhawks head physician Dr. Michael Terry.

The defending Stanley Cup champions will have to replace not only Keith's speed and stamina, but leadership and elite skills in all zones. Keith plays in all situations and logged the most minutes of any player in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs (715:37). Since his rookie season in 2005-06, Keith's 19,544:17 played in 11 regular seasons is second only to St. Louis Blues defenseman Jay Bouwmeester (19,991:05) among active players.

"[He] kind of always exceeds expectations," Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews said after practice Tuesday. "I think in this case, at a certain point, something's got to give. He's been playing his tail off for three years in a row, more ice time than anybody. Sometimes things happen. But for our team, we've played without some of our top players before. We've got to find ways to do it again."

Analysis: Blackhawks will go patchwork without Keith

Tuesday, 10.20.2015 / 3:12 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Losing defenseman Duncan Keith for an extended period of time does not mean the Chicago Blackhawks season is ruined, but dealing with the absence of the two-time Norris Trophy winner and reigning Conn Smythe Trophy winner will test them in a way that is new.

Keith will miss at least four weeks while recovering from surgery he had to repair a right knee meniscal tear, the Blackhawks announced Tuesday. If Keith misses six weeks, he'll miss 18 games. He's in his 11th NHL season and has missed 20 games total.

For as good as captain Jonathan Toews is and as important as he is to the Blackhawks, it can be argued that nobody on the roster is as important as Keith because of the lack of depth Chicago has on the blue line and for the role he plays as a top defenseman who does everything at an elite level.

Forward Curtis Glencross to retire: report

Tuesday, 10.20.2015 / 2:24 PM / News

Forward Curtis Glencross, a veteran of nine NHL seasons and 507 games, told TSN on Tuesday he plans to retire.

"We have weighed our options and with the young family I'm enjoying a lot of firsts with them," said the 32-year-old, who has two daughters and an infant son.

Glencross signed a professional tryout contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sept. 9 but was released on Sept. 27. The next day he signed a PTO with the Colorado Avalanche but was released Oct. 5.
