The Front Line: Malkin, Penguins forwards excelling

Tuesday, 12.03.2013 / 12:00 PM / Fantasy Hockey Draft Rankings, Advice and Analysis

Matt Cubeta - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

Every Tuesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey expert Matt Cubeta will provide you with an in-depth analysis of fantasy forwards in his weekly segment: "The Front Line." From updated rankings to players you should keep a close eye on and much more, Cubeta will be your fantasy forwards insider all season long.

And just like that, Evgeni Malkin is back. How did it happen so quickly? The Pittsburgh Penguins forward went from outside the top 50 fantasy players in Yahoo leagues to the No. 4 overall player in less than two weeks.

After earning the week's No. 1 star, Malkin made his fantasy owners completely forget about his sluggish start when he had just three goals and 10 points in 13 October games. Thanks to an incredible November that saw him post four goals and 25 points in 15 games, Malkin's 35 points on the season trail only his teammate, Sidney Crosby, and by just one.

But for fantasy owners, Malkin has been even more valuable. His 15 power-play points are tied for the NHL lead with Alex Ovechkin; he is tied for ninth in the NHL with 13 minor penalties (good for 26 penalty minutes); and he has a plus-1 rating and 80 shots on goal which have certainly helped. He's been a completely dominant fantasy player, and most of this incredible production has come in the month of November. He would likely be the No. 1 player if not for his slow start.

Ducks' Perreault, Jackman talk Dodger Stadium game

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM – Chilly air isn't the prescription for someone breathing through a broken nose, but that wasn't going to stop Mathieu Perreault.

Perreault broke his nose in a nasty collision about a week before the 2011 Winter Classic. His team at the time, the Washington Capitals, was about to play the Pittsburgh Penguins in front of 68,000 fans at Heinz Field in a crescendo to the popular HBO "24/7" reality show.

"I was supposed to wear a shield, but I only wore a big visor," Perreault said. "I was kind of a game-time decision.

"I really wanted to play. If it wasn't for that game, I would have probably not played. I kind of forced myself back into it earlier than I would have. All my family was there, and I really wanted to play that game. Honestly, if it wasn't for that game, I would have probably not played at all."

Here's a closer look at the action Tuesday:


Five Questions: Jets captain Ladd ready to win now

Tuesday, 12.03.2013 / 3:00 AM / Five Questions With…

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- Andrew Ladd is trying to lead the Winnipeg Jets out of the minefield of mediocrity, where teams tend to step in the wrong places by letting the highs feel too good and the lows happen too often.

The process is taking too long for Ladd, who has twice won the Stanley Cup, in 2006 with the Carolina Hurricanes and again in 2010 with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Winnipeg's captain thinks the Jets should be better than they've been this season. He wants to believe the right pieces are in place to help them gather some momentum so they can start climbing in the Central Division.

Ladd also knows how big of a role he plays in the Jets' successes and failures. Winnipeg is 7-3-2 in games when Ladd gets at least one point, and 6-9-2 when he doesn't. The Jets are 13-12-4 overall, and Ladd isn't absolving himself of the blame for their average record.

Ladd spoke to NHL.com about his thoughts on his team, finding a way to play with consistency and a little bit about his Olympic dream prior to Winnipeg's 5-2 win against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Monday.


Jets prospect Comrie thriving after hip surgery

Tuesday, 12.03.2013 / 3:00 AM / In the Pipeline

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- Eric Comrie doesn't plan on just stopping pucks in the NHL.

Comrie, who was picked 59th by the Winnipeg Jets in the NHL Draft this summer, has made it his goal to play an entire 82-game season, a feat that would best the record of 79 games held by Grant Fuhr for the St. Louis Blues in 1995-96.

So what makes the 18-year-old confident it is even possible to play them all, a task only future Hall of Fame goalie Martin Brodeur, who played 78 games in 2006-07, has approached since Fuhr?

"I treat practice like every single puck is a game puck. I go 100 percent every practice, and I see way more shots and better chances in practice than I do in games," Comrie explained in a matter-of-fact fashion. "So I feel if I can go through that in practice every single day, I can do that every single game. It doesn't wear me down."


Mitchell, Lovejoy excited for Kings-Ducks outdoors

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Willie Mitchell and Ben Lovejoy have played more than 900 games in the NHL combined. They've been through numerous hard-fought Stanley Cup Playoff series, and Mitchell won the Stanley Cup in 2012.

Somehow, the defensemen have had the misfortune of missing out on an outdoor game despite previously playing in cold-weather cities, Mitchell with the Vancouver Canucks, among others, and Lovejoy for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

That's why the smiles on their faces is quite genuine when the Jan. 25 game at Dodger Stadium is mentioned. Mitchell and the Los Angeles Kings will play Lovejoy and the Anaheim Ducks in the first outdoor game in Southern California as part of the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series. The teams play Tuesday at Honda Center for the first time this season, with the outdoor game on the horizon.


Weight, Guerin lead U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame class

Monday, 12.02.2013 / 10:40 PM / U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

DETROIT -- Through all the teams, through all the years, Bill Guerin encapsulated his friendship with Doug Weight at the beginning of his speech Monday during the induction ceremony for the United States Hockey Hall of Fame.

"Dougie told me he has an A speech and a B speech," Guerin said, laughing. "So I better tread lightly."

A friendship that began in the early 1990s at an Olympic festival when the two were amateurs came full circle Monday, when they were inducted together into the U.S. Hockey Hall.

Joining them in this year's group was former Michigan State University coach Ron Mason, women's hockey pioneer Cindy Curley, and Carolina Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos.

In addition, USA Today national hockey writer Kevin Allen was honored with the Lester Patrick Award for contributions to hockey in the United States.

I didn't think it would actually work, but it ended up working, so I'm thanking my lucky stars tonight.
