Hockey Canada streamlines camp roster for WJC

Monday, 12.02.2013 / 5:01 PM / Prospects

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- There will not be nearly as much drama surrounding the Canadian National Junior Selection Camp as there has been in past years.

Hockey Canada announced its roster Monday for the selection camp to be held Dec. 12-15 at the MasterCard Centre in Etobicoke, Ontario, and it looks very similar to the team that will ultimately go to Malmo, Sweden for the 2014 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship.

With 25 players invited to attend, including two goalies, eight defensemen and 15 forwards, Canadian coach Brent Sutter and his staff will need to make three cuts at camp, likely to be one defenseman and two forwards.

A year removed from finishing off the World Junior podium for the first time in 15 years, Hockey Canada wanted to streamline the selection process and base it more on play during the season rather than simply looking at a three-day camp.

DETROIT -- After years of asking players what it means to win the Stanley Cup, Kevin Allen finally understands what they mean by their answers.

Allen, the longtime national NHL writer for USA Today, is the 2013 winner of the Lester Patrick Trophy, awarded annually for contributions to hockey in the United States.

Allen received his award during the United States Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony Monday at the Sound Board Theater in the Motor City Casino.

"It's really been a humbling experience," Allen told NHL.com. "I've interviewed so many guys when they win the Cup and they said it's surreal and indescribable and not knowing what to say, that's kind of what I'm going with now. I guess I understand what they're saying. I'm not comparing it to winning a Cup, but I think the emotions for them, it's similar to what I feel."


Luukko, president of Flyers' parent company, resigns

Monday, 12.02.2013 / 2:44 PM / News


Peter Luukko has resigned his position as president and chief operating officer of Comcast-Spectacor, the parent company that owns the Philadelphia Flyers and Wells Fargo Center.

Luukko was second in command behind chairman Ed Snider.

"I want to thank Ed for the opportunities that he has given me to help build Comcast-Spectacor over the past 25 years," Luukko said in a press release. "We have had a wonderful partnership, building a great company with a terrific management team. Now, I have decided that it is time for me to take advantage of the equity I have built up at Comcast-Spectacor and pursue other entrepreneurial interests."

Luukko was a member of the NHL's Board of Governors. He was instrumental in the Flyers participating in the NHL Winter Classic in 2010 and 2012. Wells Fargo Center is set to host the 2014 NHL Draft and the 2014 NCAA Frozen Four.


Drouin, McDavid highlight Canada WJC camp roster

Monday, 12.02.2013 / 2:15 PM / Prospects


Many pundits considered the inclusion of forward Jonathan Drouin on the Canadian roster a bit of a surprise at the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia last season.

There was no question about Drouin's inclusion this season, and he might be considered the best player in the 2014 tournament in Malmo, Sweden.

The 18-year-old left wing, selected in the first round (No. 3) of the 2013 NHL Draft by the Tampa Bay Lightning, is in the midst of another spectacular season for the Halifax Mooseheads. Not surprisingly, he was one of 25 players invited to the country's WJC selection camp scheduled Dec. 12-15 at the MasterCard Centre in Etobicoke, Ont.

Fantasy All-Access: A November to remember

Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

The second month of the fantasy season is over and some of the big names in the NHL reclaimed their spots at the top.

Evgeni Malkin
Center - PIT
GOALS: 7 | ASST: 28 | PTS: 35
SOG: 80 | +/-: 1
Pittsburgh Penguins center Evgeni Malkin had only 10 points in 13 games played in October, but followed that up with 25 points in 15 games played to lead all scorers in November.

The Chicago Blackhawks embarked on their Circus Trip to end the month and Patrick Kane, the reigning Conn Smythe trophy winner, had a 12-game point-streak where he had eight goals and nine assists.

Finally, New York Rangers backup goaltender Cam Talbot burst on the scene with an NHL-leading 1.15 goals-against average and .956 save percentage for goalies with at least five November starts, and his two shutouts were tied for the most in the League in the 11th month of the year.

Monday, 12.02.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider


Nearly two years have passed since the Philadelphia Flyers and Minnesota Wild have shared the same sheet of ice, but that will change Monday night.

Philadelphia's next stop on its six-game, 13-day road trip is Xcel Energy Center, where the Flyers will face the Wild (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN, CSN-PH) in the first game between the teams since Jan. 17, 2012. The Flyers opened their trip with a 3-2 shootout victory against the Nashville Predators on Saturday.

"It was an ugly win," Flyers captain Claude Giroux told CSNPhilly.com. "I think we know we can play better, we can do better plays out there. But at the end, we got it done. We've just got to move forward and try to get better here."

Here's a closer look at the action Monday:

OTTAWA -- Ottawa Senators fans greeted former captain Daniel Alfredsson with a standing ovation Sunday prior to the game against the Detroit Red Wings at Canadian Tire Centre.

Chants of "Alfie! Alfie!" enhanced the cheering during a pregame video tribute in honor of Alfredsson, who played his first game in Canada's capital city since leaving the Senators last summer to sign a one-year contract with Detroit.

U2's "Beautiful Day", which was Alfredsson's longtime goal song in Ottawa, played while the video scoreboard ran highlights from the 40-year-old Swede's 17-year career with the Senators.

Alfredsson, who was in the Red Wings' starting lineup, watched from in front of the bench and skated out to center ice while the video was still playing to raise his stick to salute the crowd.
