Wild goalie Dubnyk feeling comfortable, confident

Tuesday, 02.03.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- The designs on the front of Devan Dubnyk's mask have changed a lot over the past two seasons, but as he remodeled his look again after a trade to the Minnesota Wild last month, the portrait of his 17-month-old son on the back remained a constant.

Whether Dubnyk needed perspective amid a nightmare season in 2013-14 that included time in the American Hockey League, inspiration to get back to the NHL, or a break from the mental grind of goaltending now that he is back, he could find it in his son, Nathaniel.

"To see him is the best part of your day so it doesn't matter what else is going on, you can forget about it," Dubnyk said. "In order to come to the rink focused every game you have to be able to let it go on the days between, otherwise you tire out mentally. So to have him there and see him helps, no matter how much other stuff is going on."

Busy month could precede NHL Trade Deadline

Tuesday, 02.03.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Every Stanley Cup contender in every season is interested in filling a need for top-end talent or depth to solidify its position before the trade deadline passes, but the run-up to 2015 NHL Trade Deadline, which is 3 p.m. ET on March 2, likely will put the focus on the sellers for two reasons:

1. Connor McDavid

2. Jack Eichel

"We're having a poor year and there are certain rewards for being real bad this year. I think we're all aware of that," Arizona Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said last week on TSN 1200 Radio in Ottawa. "If we ever had to have a down year this is probably as good as any of them."

Five Questions: Flames' Giordano on road to the top

Tuesday, 02.03.2015 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Mark Giordano's path to NHL stardom can be seen as either the blueprint for all fledgling professional defensemen or the envy of everyone who is or once was in his shoes.

Giordano, now a Norris Trophy candidate and an all-star, started as an undrafted defenseman out of the Ontario Hockey League and spent a year playing professionally in Russia. He has been a full-time NHL player since the 2008-09 season. He was a first-time all-star this season.

Along the way Giordano has figured things out about himself, his game, and about what makes the great ones in the NHL great. He has learned to play a two-way game without sacrificing what he does best, which is join the rush and provide offense. He has become a leader.

Jon Lane - NHL.com Staff Writer

Hockey legend Gordie Howe is "doing fantastic" in his ongoing recovery from a stroke, his son Dr. Murray Howe told NHL Live on Monday.

Dr. Howe said his father has gained at least 20 pounds since having stem-cell treatment in Mexico on Dec. 8. Gordie Howe is rehabbing at his daughter Kathy's house in Lubbock Texas, where he helps with the household chores. Upon visiting, Howe's sons take turns playing hockey, throwing a football or kicking a soccer ball with their father.

"He's doing very, very well," said Dr. Howe, the director of sports medicine imaging of Toledo Hospital. "He has good days and bad days like anybody who's 86 [years old], but overall he's heading in the right direction really every day, a little bit better. He had his stem cell treatment Dec. 8 and really since that time he's just been doing fantastic.

Kings enjoy second White House visit in three years

Monday, 02.02.2015 / 4:38 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

WASHINGTON -- The Los Angeles Kings renewed acquaintances with President Barack Obama on Monday at the White House, where they were honored for winning the Stanley Cup championship last year.

The Kings were joined on stage in the East Room and on a pre-ceremony tour and gathering with President Obama by members of the Los Angeles Galaxy, who won the MLS Cup last season. President Obama also honored the Kings and Galaxy for winning their respective league championships on March 26, 2013.

Both franchises are owned by AEG.

"As a Chicago fan I'm a little resentful, you guys have an embarrassment of riches," President Obama said during his seven-minute speech. "Today feels like Groundhog Day. If you're feeling a little déjà vu you're not alone. Two years ago we had the Galaxy and the Kings here together. So if you see Bill Murray playing the piano in the foyer you know something weird is going on, and we're probably going to do this again."
