Saturday, 01.04.2014 / 3:00 AM / Tapped In

Kathryn Tappen - NHL.com Contributor

Anze Kopitar helped bring the city of Los Angles and the Kings franchise its first Stanley Cup in 2012. Widely considered to be the Kings' best offensive weapon, Kopitar is one of the most dynamic players in the world. To add to his already impressive resume, Kopi, as he's affectionately called, looks to make history with his father in Sochi next month.

Kathryn Tappen: Describe what growing up in Slovenia is like.

Anze Kopitar: My hometown was a big steel factory town. It was also a hockey town. Other towns nearby were known for soccer, basketball and handball, and my town was known for hockey. My dad played, so it wasn't really hard for me to start playing either. It's not a big town, only about 12,000 people. We lived in the suburbs of it so there was no hassle to drive in every day. [Note: Anze's father, Matjaz Kopitar, played for HK Acroni Jesenice in Yugoslavia and later Slovenia and won championship in the 1980s and 1990s, and competed in three World Championships.]

Friday, 01.03.2014 / 1:56 PM / AHL Update

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

When the NHL comes knocking, any player in the American Hockey League must be prepared to answer the call. For second-year pro Michael Chaput of the Springfield Falcons, the feeling of making his NHL debut with the Columbus Blue Jackets earlier this season is one he’ll never forget.

"I remember sitting in the locker room next to Mark Letestu and he was just telling me to play my game and things will go well,” Chaput said. “[The team’s veterans] are there to make sure you’re not too stressed out and that you’re confident when you go out there for your first few games."

A third-round pick of the Philadelphia Flyers in the 2010 NHL Draft (No. 89), Chaput was acquired by the Blue Jackets in 2011 and was the MVP of the 2012 Memorial Cup, with the Shawinigan Cataractes of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Friday, 01.03.2014 / 1:56 PM / News

NHL.com Staff

The Florida Panthers expect to have captain Ed Jovanovski in the lineup for the first time this season when they host the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

The veteran defenseman has been out all season recovering from hip surgery.

"I am very excited to get back on the ice with my teammates on Saturday night," Jovanovski told the team's website. "I cannot thank our doctors and training staff enough for the countless hours they spent helping me rehab from my injury."

Jovanovski had surgery April 5. He played six games last season, none after March 16. He first was injured Jan. 29 against the Tampa Bay Lightning and missed 22 games. He returned for the one game in March against the New York Islanders, but his return lasted less than two periods.

First | Prev | 141 | 142 | 143 | 144 | 145 | 146 | 147-152 | Next | Last

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.

— Panthers vice president of hockey operations Travis Viola after Florida won the No. 1 pick in the NHL Draft Lottery
