Flyers' Laughton impressive early in Lehigh Valley

Friday, 10.31.2014 / 3:55 PM / AHL Update

Kinsey Janke - Special to NHL.com

Scott Laughton has been a first-round NHL draft pick, debuted in the NHL at 18 years old, and left a lasting impression on many of the sport's biggest decision makers.

But it's not his age that sets him apart anymore. In a league full of younger players looking to reach the NHL, it's the poise Laughton, the 20th pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, has shown on the ice in tough situations that is helping differentiate him from his peers.

Beginning his first pro season with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, American Hockey League affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers, Laughton, now 20, has made an early statement.

"He makes a lot of plays that generate a lot of space for himself," Phantoms right wing Andrew Gordon said. "You'll think the defense has him cornered but he'll be able to open himself up and find six feet of space to get that next play made. That's a sign of maturity in his game, his ability not to panic and to make something out of nothing."

Sabres forward Reinhart returned to junior hockey

Friday, 10.31.2014 / 1:43 PM / News

Joe Yerdon - NHL.com Correspondent

BUFFALO -- Sam Reinhart's time with the Buffalo Sabres this season has ended.

The Sabres returned the 6-foot-1, 185-pound center, the second pick of the 2014 NHL Draft, to his junior team, the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League, on Friday.

"The minutes he got here, the situations he played in here, suggested to me it was time to get back," Sabres general manager Tim Murray said.

The Sabres could play Reinhart in nine games before deciding whether or not to keep him beyond his 10th game and start the clock on his three-year, entry-level contract or return him to junior hockey. Reinhart played his ninth game against the Boston Bruins on Thursday; the Sabres' next game is Saturday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

"He's not going to learn a whole lot there on the ice, I don't think," Murray said. "I told him I know he can go back there [Kootenay] and be a 120-point guy in a full season playing three-quarter speed, but that's not what we want him to go back there and do. We want him to get stronger and he's going to have to find a way to … find a way to slip out on his own to get to the gym and get stronger."

Devils look forward after ending shootout drought

Friday, 10.31.2014 / 8:57 AM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- The huge sigh of relief coming from New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer was palpable as he stepped to the podium at his postgame press conference to discuss a rare shootout victory.

When asked if a huge weight had been lifted off his shoulders, DeBoer smiled.

"I think that's an understatement," he said.

Jacob Josefson made it possible when he scored on his second-round attempt for what proved to be the only goal of the tiebreaker in a 2-1 victory against the Winnipeg Jets at Prudential Center on Thursday. The win snapped an NHL-record 18-game losing streak in the shootout for the Devils; their last shootout victory came March 10, 2013, also against Winnipeg.

Playing experience guided Shapiro in 'Hockey Saint'

Friday, 10.31.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Jon Lane - NHL.com Staff Writer

Playing three years of high school hockey, Howard Shapiro discovered a few things about himself and what he wanted to become. Although Shapiro said he wasn't very good, hockey taught him lessons that he applied to his life and opened creative doors to what would be a series of books on how the game brings people closer together.

"Those three years of being a really bad player, the game itself taught me so much, things I was able to learn from playing that I applied in school and in my professional life. And friendships that last to this day," Shapiro said.

Since playing professional hockey was out of the question, Shapiro became an accountant and author. His latest release is his first hockey graphic novel, "The Hockey Saint." It's the story of 21-year-old Jeremiah Jacobson, the world's best hockey player but unprepared for the scrutiny of stardom, and his evolving friendship with college player Tom Leonard, an average sophomore trying to find his place in the world.

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.
