Parise back in New Jersey: 'It's going to be fun'

Wednesday, 03.19.2014 / 7:45 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Zach Parise expects to feel like an outsider walking into familiar place Thursday when he enters Prudential Center through the visitors entrance for the first time.

The Minnesota Wild left wing said the entire experience of playing a road game against the his old team, the New Jersey Devils, will be one of the strangest, coolest and most humbling experiences of his career.

"I've been excited to come back here to play, but it was one of those things, you look at the schedule in October and you're like, 'Ah, we're not going there until March, I've got a lot of time until then,'" Parise told NHL.com Wednesday night. "Then it's December and you're still like, 'I've got a couple of months.' But then the Olympics came and went and you're like, 'Oh my gosh, we're going there in five games.' It really snuck up on me, but I've been looking forward to it. It's going to be fun."

Wednesday, 03.19.2014 / 3:39 PM / News

Sam Tageson has long worshipped the San Jose Sharks as his favorite NHL team. But even he was overwhelmed when the organization decided to dedicate an entire day to one of its biggest fans.

Working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Sharks pulled out all the stops for Tageson, 18, a lifelong fan struggling with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a life-threatening heart condition. Tageson was informed two weeks ago that he would be spending the day with his favorite team. But that wasn't enough to prepare him for the special day at SAP Center at San Jose.

It started Tuesday morning when Tageson officially signed a one-day contract with the club, complete with an appearance by Sharks general manager Doug Wilson and the obligatory media scrum. Surrounded by reporters and photographers, it was just the first in a series of thrilling moments for Tageson, who has been playing hockey since age 6.

On the 'D'-fence: Tough pill powers Coyotes' Yandle

Wednesday, 03.19.2014 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Brian Metzer - NHL.com Correspondent

The United States Olympic team was announced on New Year's Day following the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs. While those named to the roster were celebrating their selections, Phoenix Coyotes defenseman Keith Yandle was left to wonder what he could have done differently upon being left behind.

Yandle thought he gave himself a great chance to be selected to the roster with his first-half performance, calling his omission from the team "a tough pill to swallow."

The good news for the Coyotes and fantasy owners of Yandle is that rather than sulk, he used the experience as motivation and has been one of the most productive defensemen in the League since the Olympic break.

Make no mistake, his first half numbers were impressive. He picked up seven goals and 31 points over his first 58 games this season, good for .66 points per game. That would tie him for 11th in the League in points per game among defensemen, had he continued along at that pace.

He was firing 2.78 shots on goal per game and had contributed 22 power-play points.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
