Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

CALGARY -- Twenty-five years after No. 25 helped bring the franchise its only Stanley Cup, the Calgary Flames on Friday will honor Joe Nieuwendyk.

Nieuwendyk, who starred for the Flames for eight seasons and was an integral piece of Calgary's Cup run in 1989, will receive the "Forever a Flame" celebration for his contributions to the organization.

"It feels great," said Nieuwendyk, who played the first 577 games of his career with Calgary, totaling 314 goals, 302 assists and 616 points. "I have so much of the early part of my history, my start here with this organization. I'm very grateful. A lot of memories; a lot of former teammates that live in this area still obviously. It's just a classy organization that's rolling out the red carpet and it's a little overwhelming."


Canada goalie Shannon Szabados to join SPHL team

Friday, 03.07.2014 / 4:12 PM / News


Goaltender Shannon Szabados, who helped the Canada women's hockey team win a gold medal at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, agreed Friday to join to the Columbus Cottonmouths of the Southern Professional Hockey League.

Szabados wrote on her Twitter account that she will join the team March 12 and be available for the final five games of the regular season. The Cottonmouths announced a press conference for March 13 to introduce her.

The 27-year-old goaltender allowed three goals (one even-strength) in three games at the Olympics, and led the tournament with an 0.96 goals-against average and .954 save percentage. She stopped 27 of 29 shots in Canada's 3-2 overtime win against the United States in the gold-medal game. It was her second gold medal, having helped Canada win at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

She will be the first woman to play in the SPHL.

"I am very excited to get a world-class athlete that has competed and has faced high-pressured situations," Columbus coach Jerome Bechard said. "Shannon has won at every level she has played, in women's hockey or men's hockey."

It's been a whirlwind week for 20-year-old Vincent Trocheck. The rookie forward with the San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League received his first call-up to the Florida Panthers on Wednesday, just after the NHL Trade Deadline passed. He's expected to make his NHL debut for the Panthers on Friday against the visiting Buffalo Sabres.

"It's been crazy," Trocheck said. "It's obviously what I've been working for my whole life. Getting the call was surreal and I couldn't be more excited to be here."

Trocheck began his path to professional hockey long before arriving in the Sunshine State. A Pittsburgh native, he was born in 1993, right after the Pittsburgh Penguins won back-to-back Stanley Cups in 1991 and 1992.

"Growing up in Pittsburgh was a great influence," Trocheck said. "The Penguins were doing really well whenever I was young so that kind of got me into hockey and it all started there."

Super 16: Teams hang on to top picks

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

It was a busy day Wednesday in the NHL as teams scrambled to make trades on the last day allowed for players to be eligible for the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. There were 20 trades on NHL Trade Deadline day, and a total of 39 deals in the month leading up to it.

Something happened (or didn't happen) in that month that hasn't been the case in any season since the 2004-05 lockout: No team officially traded a first-round pick in the upcoming draft.

Two teams, the New York Rangers and St. Louis Blues, traded first-round selections in the 2015 NHL Draft and both of those deals included an extra conditional pick that could become a first-rounder in the 2014 draft. This was the first time a first-round pick in the forthcoming draft was not moved on deadline day since 2010, and the first time none officially were moved in the month before the deadline since the aforementioned lockout.


MacKinnon breaks Gretzky's point-streak record

Thursday, 03.06.2014 / 11:46 PM / News


Colorado Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon erased one of Wayne Gretzky's records Thursday night by earning a point in his 13th consecutive game, the longest streak ever by an 18-year-old.

MacKinnon set up Andre Benoit for the winning goal 4:28 into overtime, giving the Avalanche a 3-2 victory against the Detroit Red Wings. His passout from behind the net found Benoit in the lower left circle for a wrister than beat goaltender Jimmy Howard.

"Nobody really took me, and Benoit took the back door. [The record's] pretty cool. I want to be as consistent as possible," MacKinnon said. "[Gretzky] probably doubled my point total in those games."

GOALS: 14 | ASST: 9 | PTS: 23
SOG: 60 | +/-: 11
Steven Stamkos returned to play for the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday as their new captain, taking over for Martin St. Louis.

Stamkos had the "C" on his jersey when he skated out to face the Buffalo Sabres in his first game since Nov. 11. The 24-year-old center had been sidelined since breaking his right tibia in a game against the Boston Bruins.

St. Louis, who had been captain since the start of this season, was traded to the New York Rangers on Wednesday.


Red Wings retire Nicklas Lidstrom's No. 5

DETROIT -- They rolled out the red carpet Thursday night at Joe Louis Arena, and there was no question as to whom it was meant to welcome.

Looking down at center ice prior to the Detroit Red Wings' game against the Colorado Avalanche, the red carpet was in the shape of the No. 5. If you looked behind each net, "5" was painted into the ice; in the corners of the rink, there were 5s; and attached to the lapels of Red Wings employees: 5.

That, of course, was the number Nicklas Lidstrom wore during his legendary 20-year NHL career, all with the Red Wings.

It clearly was the seven-time Norris Trophy-winning defenseman’s night, and the Red Wings made sure everybody knew it.
