Top prospect Bennett focused on making Flames

Tuesday, 07.29.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- Sam Bennett isn't about to make any guarantees.

With two months until the opening of training camp, the No. 4 pick in the 2014 NHL Draft isn't feeling entitled to a spot on the Calgary Flames roster.

"I'm not going to say I'm going to make the team," Bennett said during Calgary development camp. "But that's definitely my goal and I'm just going to go out there and try my hardest to do whatever I can to make it. Whatever happens, happens.

"Definitely, I'm going to do whatever I can."

"I was told there's a definite opportunity," Reimer said. "That's the mindset I'm coming in with, to really take advantage of the opportunity that's been given and earn the No. 1 spot."

Monday, 07.28.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- The New Jersey Devils wasted no time introducing first-round pick John Quenneville to the rigors of professional hockey.

In a puck-possession drill that opened a morning session at development camp, the No. 30 pick in the 2014 NHL Draft went 1-on-1 against 2012 first-round choice Stefan Matteau, who spent last season with the Albany Devils of the American Hockey League.

"He has shown talent and has size to him; he reminds me of me in my first year," Matteau, a No. 29 pick, said. "He's a good player and will be an NHL player for sure."

Coyotes prospect Kulda looking to build on heroics

Monday, 07.28.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Jerry Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- After scoring 34 goals in the 2014 calendar year, including 10 in the playoffs and four in six Memorial Cup games for the champion Edmonton Oil Kings, Edgars Kulda's draft stock was reportedly on the rise.

His goal and two assists in the championship-game win against the Guelph Storm capped a Memorial Cup MVP performance for the 19-year-old Latvian left wing, and all those late-round draft projections were soon adjusted to third- and fourth-round. Some predicted he could go as high as the second round.

But a funny thing happened on the way to the podium.

Memories of father help guide Chiasson brothers

Sunday, 07.27.2014 / 10:30 AM / NHL Insider

Kurt Dusterberg - NHL.com Correspondent

RALEIGH, N.C. -- Despite being the middle of summer, the Carolina Hurricanes locker room is buzzing with an unusual kind of hockey energy. The players there, for the most part, are not ready for the NHL, draft picks and camp invitees finishing their first day of prospect development camp. They are wide-eyed and enthusiastic, hustling to get ready for a team dinner.

But just outside the dressing area two players clearly are on another wavelength. They are holding court with Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis, who gives the two young men his undivided attention. The scene looks a bit unusual: Two teenage players driving the conversation with a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

The two up-and-comers are brothers Mike Chiasson and Ryan Chiasson. They earned their invitations to camp, just as they did their audience with Francis. Yet if there is the sense Francis is giving extra care to these two players in particular, it's because he is.
