NHL scouts take shot at picking first round of draft

Tuesday, 03.25.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

There should be plenty of debate and intrigue when NHL Central Scouting starts its final meetings Wednesday in Toronto as they come together to set the final rankings for the 2014 NHL Draft.

While those rankings won't be released until next month, NHL.com has recruited two veteran NHL scouts, one from a team in each conference, in the interim to provide their first-round projections in exchange for anonymity.

The following mock drafts might be the closest thing you'll see anywhere on the Internet in terms of how the opening round of the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia turn out.

Canadiens' Budaj comes up big again in Boston

Tuesday, 03.25.2014 / 1:56 AM / NHL Insider

James Murphy - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTONMontreal Canadiens goalie Peter Budaj did it to the Boston Bruins again on Monday night.

For whatever reason, Montreal's backup goaltender plays his best every time he gets the nod against the Bruins at TD Garden. Budaj held the fort early for the Canadiens, finished regulation and overtime with 28 saves and then stopped four shots in the shootout to help the Canadiens snap Boston's 12-game win streak with a 2-1 victory.

Gaborik still trying to fit in with Kings

Monday, 03.24.2014 / 11:50 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- Darryl Sutter shrugs his shoulders and shakes his head when he's asked about the impact Marian Gaborik could have on the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup Playoffs next month and possibly beyond.

Marian Gaborik
Right Wing - LAK
GOALS: 8 | ASST: 10 | PTS: 18
SOG: 72 | +/-: -1
It's possible he's playing coy, but Sutter, the Kings coach, repeatedly said after Los Angeles' 3-2 win Monday against the Philadelphia Flyers that he really doesn't know what to expect from Gaborik because he doesn't know him well enough yet.

"We just got him, and it's not easy for a player at the deadline to come in, it's not easy to come to a good team," Sutter said. "It's got nothing to do with the player. Quite honestly, I couldn't tell you. I really don't know."

Coyotes' Smith leaves game with injury

Monday, 03.24.2014 / 11:00 PM / News

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith was forced to leave the game against the New York Rangers on Monday night with a lower-body injury.

With 7:34 remaining in regulation and the Coyotes leading 3-2, Smith favored his right leg and was in obvious discomfort after forward Derick Brassard fell on top of him following a scramble in front of the net.

"He's being evaluated now. We'll see," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "It's early. We don't know anything about it yet."

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Phoenix Coyotes forward Lauri Korpikoski is day-to-day with an upper-body injury and will not play Monday night against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.

Korpikoski sustained the injury during the morning skate. While practicing odd-man rushes, the 27-year-old was hit in the head by an errant pass that deflected off a teammate's stick. He quickly headed for the dressing room and did not return to practice.

Bruins seamlessly integrating new players on defense

Monday, 03.24.2014 / 2:14 PM / NHL Insider

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTON -- Teams can boast about their depth until they're blue in the face.

Under perfect circumstances that depth never will have to be tested and observers never will discover if it's capable of living up to the hype.

The Boston Bruins haven't had perfect circumstances during the 2013-14 season. But a rash of injuries to their defense corps hasn't stopped them from reeling off 12 straight wins heading into their game against the Montreal Canadiens at TD Garden on Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN, RDS), or from allowing the second-fewest amount of goals per game in the NHL entering play Monday.

Obviously the goaltending of Tuukka Rask (2.07 goals-against average, .929 save percentage) and Chad Johnson (2.04, .925) deserves a lot of credit for Boston's stinginess. But even the goaltenders would admit they need help from the players in front of them.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.

— Brian Elliott to Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch on being the Blues' No. 1 goalie
