NEW YORKDetroit Red Wings left wing Justin Abdelkader, New York Rangers center Oscar Lindberg and Arizona Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending Oct. 11.


Abdelkader shared the League lead with four goals and tied for second in the NHL with five points as the Red Wings (2-0-0, 4 points) opened the season with a pair of victories. He recorded his second career hat trick, including the game-winning goal, in a 4-0 triumph over the Toronto Maple Leafs Oct. 9, becoming the third player in franchise history to notch three goals in Detroit's opening game of the season (also Adam Brown in 1945-46 and Brendan Shanahan in 2001-02). Abdelkader then posted 1-1-2, as well as the decisive goal, in a 4-3 comeback win over the Carolina Hurricanes Oct. 10. The 28-year-old Muskegon, Mich., native has 65-72-137 in 400 career NHL games, all with the Red Wings. He set career highs in goals (23), assists (21) and points (44) last season (71 GP).

NWHL begins historic inaugural season

Monday, 10.12.2015 / 11:16 AM / News

The National Women's Hockey League began its historic inaugural season Sunday.

The league's four teams, the Boston Pride, Connecticut Whale, New York Riveters and Buffalo Beauts each started an 18-game schedule that runs through February.

The puck was dropped for the first time before a sellout crowd at Chelsea Piers in Stamford, Conn., where the Whale faced the Riveters.

"It's a dream come true," Whale goalie Jaimie Leonoff, who made 35 saves to pick up the first win in NWHL history, told the Collinsville Press. "Never in my wildest dreams would I imagine 800 tickets sold, kids screaming [in the stands] and girls on the ice. We had so much support."

Coyotes go for three; Kessel, McDavid debut at home

Monday, 10.12.2015 / 9:00 AM / Weekly Primer

Brian Compton - Deputy Managing Editor

Many hockey pundits predicted the Arizona Coyotes to finish at or near the bottom of the NHL standings this season. Granted, they still have 80 games remaining, but the Coyotes are showing early they're not willing to bow down to anybody.

The Coyotes won their second straight with a 2-1 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Gila River Arena on Saturday and will look to make it three in a row on Wednesday at the Anaheim Ducks (10:30 p.m. ET; FS-A, PRIME, FS-SD), who have been picked by many to win the Pacific Division.

What's been the biggest reason for Arizona's solid start?

Fantasy All-Access: Sutter among early wire targets

Sean McCullen - Staff Writer

Every Monday, staff writer Sean McCullen identifies potential waiver-wire pickups, and points out lineup moves and schedule impacts for fantasy hockey.

The 2015-16 NHL season is 31 games old. There are 1,199 to go. Don't make any rash decisions if your fantasy team didn't light it up through the first five days; there's plenty of time for it to become the juggernaut you envisioned as you were leaving your draft.

Just as you shouldn't drop Tuukka Rask because he gave up eight goals in the Boston Bruins' two season-opening losses, you shouldn't add Mike Smith because he made saves on 67 of 69 shots to help the Arizona Coyotes to a 2-0-0 start.

Mike Condon made 20 saves in his NHL debut to backstop the Montreal Canadiens past the Ottawa Senators in the first game between the teams since the opening round of the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs, a six-game series victory by Montreal.

* The 25-year-old Condon – a native of Needham, Mass. – spent 2014-15 with the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL), where he was 23-19-6 with a 2.44 goals-against average, a .921 save percentage and four shutouts in 48 games.

* Tomas Plekanec scored twice in the first period – including the eventual game-winner on a breakaway late in the period – and has goals in back-to-back games (3-0—3).

Sabres goalie Lehner out 6-10 weeks with ankle sprain

Sunday, 10.11.2015 / 5:30 PM / News

Buffalo Sabres goalie Robin Lehner will miss 6-10 weeks with a high-ankle sprain, coach Dan Bylsma said Sunday.

"We were waiting for the MRI and waiting for a prognosis but you know with the symptoms and so forth, you had an idea what the injury was," Bylsma said in video posted by the Sabres website. "It's not a complete surprise to get the results and to have that be the time frame."

Lehner left a 3-1 loss to the Ottawa Senators 7:30 into the second period Thursday. He was hunched over after he made a save against Senators forward Mark Stone and appeared to favor his left leg. Lehner skated off the ice but was helped to the bench by a trainer.

Bruins' Marchand out indefinitely with concussion

Sunday, 10.11.2015 / 3:03 PM / News

Boston Bruins forward Brad Marchand sustained a concussion Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens, coach Claude Julien told the Bruins website Sunday.

"We're going about it with the League's protocol with concussions and his return will be dictated by how quickly he recovers ... so we have no timetable for him," Julien said.

Marchand left Boston's 4-2 loss midway through the third period after taking an inadvertent elbow to the side of his head from Canadiens forward Dale Weise. He was helped off the ice and did not return to the game.
