Report: NHL executive Shanahan to join Leafs

Thursday, 04.10.2014 / 8:10 PM / News

Brendan Shanahan reportedly will resign his position as NHL Senior Vice President, Player Safety and Hockey Operations to join the Toronto Maple Leafs this weekend, according to a report Thursday.

The Toronto Star said Shanahan's resignation could come as early as Friday to take a senior management role with the club.

This season, the Maple Leafs appeared headed for a second straight trip to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but an eight-game losing streak which began in mid-March severely hurt their chances. Toronto was eliminated on Tuesday, when it lost 3-0 to the Tampa Bay Lightning, and has made the playoffs once in the past nine seasons.

PHILADELPHIA -- Shayne Gostisbehere hopes to eventually play his games here at Wells Fargo Center. He did a nice job impressing his future home fans Thursday at the Frozen Four opener.

Gostisbehere, a 2012 third-round pick (No. 78) of the Philadelphia Flyers, had two assists to help Union College advance to the NCAA championship game with a 5-4 victory against Boston College.

Daniel Ciampini had a hat trick for Union, which will play for its first NCAA title Saturday (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) against the winner of the second semifinal Thursday, between North Dakota and Minnesota (8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN2).

In the Cage: Final goalie ranks and a look ahead

Thursday, 04.10.2014 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Justin Goldman - NHL.com Correspondent

This fantasy hockey season was truly the Year of the Goalie.

When the Winnipeg Jets' Michael Hutchinson and the Anaheim Ducks' John Gibson made their NHL debuts Monday night, they became the 91st and 92nd goalies to appear in a game this season. On Thursday night, John Curry will become the fifth goalie to suit up for the Wild this season, extending the total to 93. That's an impressive number, because only once since the 1999-2000 campaign has there been more than 92 goalies to appear in a season (94 in the 2003-04 season).

With so many unknown fantasy goalie assets weaving their way in and out of starting lineups this season, the only thing more impressive than the number 92 would be the play of the class of 22 rookies. After Gibson's 5-2 win against the San Jose Sharks on Wednesday night, rookies have a combined 103-81-25 record. Their 2.52 goals-against average and .912 save percentage (5,658 saves on 6,206 shots) also includes 15 shutouts.

It's hard to believe we're wrapping up the third year of "In the Cage" articles, but in doing so, let's look back at some of the best fantasy goalies from the regular season.

Prospector Files: Like father, like son for Reinharts

Thursday, 04.10.2014 / 3:00 AM / Prospector Files

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Former NHL defenseman Paul Reinhart has a pretty good idea what it takes to reach the next level.

He spent 11 seasons in the League with the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks and is the father of three successful hockey-playing sons: Max, Griffin and Sam.

Max was a third-round pick (No. 64) of the Flames in 2010 and Griffin was selected No. 4 by the New York Islanders in 2012. Sam's turn will come at the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Bruins' Rask should take home Vezina Trophy

Thursday, 04.10.2014 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

With the 2013-14 regular season rapidly coming to a close, NHL.com looks at some of its biggest storylines and award contenders.

Until last season, the Vezina Trophy belonged to the veterans of the goaltending position for much of the past two decades.

Starting with Dominik Hasek's first victory in 1994, there was an 18-season period where only twice did someone younger than 29 win the Vezina (Jim Carrey was 21 in 1996 and Jose Theodore was 25 in 2002). Sergei Bobrovsky won in his age-24 season in 2013, and it's likely someone is going to make it two in a row for the 28-and-under crowd this season.

Entering play Tuesday, the top six goaltenders in save percentage with at least 42 starts all are 27 years old or younger.

Red Deer prospect Fleury has NHL role model

Thursday, 04.10.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

As a toddler Red Deer Rebels defenseman Haydn Fleury had his first brush with the NHL. He just might not have known it at the time.

At age 3 Fleury's babysitter in his hometown of Carlyle, Saskatchewan, was current St. Louis Blues forward Brenden Morrow, then a star with the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League and a 1997 first-round pick of the Dallas Stars.

The impact of having Morrow around was immediate.

"Growing up I always wanted to be the same number he was," said Fleury, a potential first-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft. "He was a good role model for me. I know being from a small town he had to move away at a young age to go to Portland. It kind of set me up to want to go the same route he was. He was just a good role model for me as a young kid."

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.

— Florida Panthers director of player development Brian Skrudland on defenseman Aaron Ekblad's performance at development camp
