Predators don't want to rush talented Forsberg

Monday, 07.14.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

John Manasso - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- For all of the Nashville Predators fans concerned about the development of Filip Forsberg, it's worth keeping in mind that he's 19 years old.

Perhaps because the Predators have struggled for offense in recent seasons and because Forsberg was drafted high in the first round and was acquired in a trade with the Washington Capitals for Martin Erat, a player who averaged 53 points for the Predators for seven consecutive seasons, the weight of heavy expectations has fallen upon Forsberg.

He has plenty of time to live up to them, but as with all players he needs to be given time to develop.

"Obviously it's a long journey," Forsberg said during Predators development camp. "I'm still a pretty young kid so hopefully … my time is coming this year."

Hashimoto has memorable trip to Blue Jackets camp

Sunday, 07.13.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Craig Merz - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS -- What little he knew of the NHL, a 10-year-old Ryo Hashimoto learned from viewing a highlight video at home in Sapporo, Japan.

"I watched a lot of games but it was the same tape over and over again," he said Tuesday through a translator. "Now I can pick up the computer and follow on NHL.com."

Hashimoto got a chance this week to see the NHL firsthand as a free-agent invitee to Columbus Blue Jackets development camp that ended Thursday.

The 21-year-old hopes his efforts eventually lead to a contract with the Blue Jackets, but the Japanese Hockey Federation already has benefitted from his time here.

"People are following him back home," said Yasuhiro Umeta, the vice chief secretary for Asia League Ice Hockey who traveled with Hashimoto and acted as his interpreter.

"I'm so happy he has the opportunity. He thinks he can play here."

Capitals owner says new regime 'in total sync'

Saturday, 07.12.2014 / 3:45 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Vingan - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. – In entering the first phase of what was termed an organizational refresh earlier this offseason, it was imperative to Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis that all facets of management were aligned.

"You need to be totally in sync [with new coach Barry Trotz]," Leonsis recalled telling general manager Brian MacLellan upon promoting him in May. "With the players that we sign, the players that we draft, you have to be in total sync."

Two months into the Capitals' new regime, Leonsis has seen his directives carried out to his satisfaction.

"So far, so good on that," he said Saturday. "I think that's a good move in a positive direction to have the organization all singing from the same songbook."

Fabbri makes strong first impression on Blues

Saturday, 07.12.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

HAZELWOOD, Mo. -- Tim Taylor has gotten to know St. Louis Blues 2014 first-round pick Robert Fabbri quite extensively this week.

The Blues director of player development worked with some of their top prospects during development camp at the Ice Zone, inside St. Louis Outlet Mall.

After watching Fabbri, Taylor understood why the Blues made the center from the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League the 21st pick last month.

"There's a reason why we picked him first," Taylor said of Fabbri, who had 45 goals and 87 points in 58 regular-season games then was named MVP of the OHL playoffs after he had 13 goals and 28 points in 16 games. He capped his season with two goals and four assists in four games while helping the Storm reach the Memorial Cup championship game.

Turris ready for role as Senators' top center

Friday, 07.11.2014 / 10:49 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Kyle Turris has experience taking over for Jason Spezza as the Ottawa Senators' No. 1 center and he is confident he can do it again.

Turris will ascend the depth chart this season after Spezza was traded to the Dallas Stars on July 1. Two seasons ago, Spezza was sidelined for almost all of the shortened schedule after back surgery.

"I definitely think I've learned a lot over the past two years from those experiences, from being put into that role when [Spezza] was hurt, and seeing how hard the matchup is," Turris told the Ottawa Sun on Friday. "I just tried to take that mentality and put it into the role I had this past year. … This upcoming year, if I'm put into that role again, I think the experience I have now will work in my favor, to know what to expect and how better to prepare for it."
