Simpson sheds shadow at North Dakota

Monday, 11.25.2013 / 3:00 AM / On Campus

Bob Snow - NHL.com Correspondent

If University of North Dakota senior defenseman Dillon Simpson were born three years earlier, the family photo album would likely have him sitting in Lord Stanley's Cup.

Simpson's dad, Craig, also an NCAA standout at Michigan State, was etched into Cup lore when the Edmonton Oilers won the championship in 1988 and 1990.

Currently a broadcaster for Hockey Night in Canada, Craig Simpson's two college seasons from 1983-85 included 141 points in 88 games, which led to becoming the No. 2 pick by the Pittsburgh Penguins at the 1985 NHL Draft.

His NHL career from 1985-95 would begin immediately in the Steel City for almost three seasons, but it ended prematurely with the Buffalo Sabres after a serious back injury.


Canada roster projection: Challenging task at hand

Monday, 11.25.2013 / 3:00 AM / 2014 Olympics

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

It's become a common sight to see an executive associated with the Canadian Olympic team scouting from press boxes across the National Hockey League. The architects of the team Canada will bring to the 2014 Sochi Olympics are taking and comparing notes on a regular basis.

Executive Director Steve Yzerman is tasked with putting it all together. He routinely dispatches himself and his chief lieutenants -- Doug Armstrong, Ken Holland, Peter Chiarelli and Kevin Lowe -- around the League to check in with the players that are under consideration.

The players know they're watching. They're trying to impress.

Sunday, 11.24.2013 / 5:51 PM / News


The Tampa Bay Lightning recalled forward Nikita Kucherov and defenseman Dmitry Korobov from the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League, the Lightning announced Sunday.

Kucherov, 20, has played 17 games with the Crunch this season, posting team-highs for both goals (13) and points (24). He ranks second in the AHL and first on Syracuse with six power-play goals. The Moscow native leads all AHL rookies for goals and points.

Sunday, 11.24.2013 / 4:05 PM / News


An MRI given to Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding (lower body) on Sunday came back normal. Harding will be reevaluated and if he believes he can handle pain, the hope is he will meet the team to back up Niklas Backstrom on Monday against the St. Louis Blues at Scottrade Center.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that Harding apparently had leg spasms and that is sounds like he'll be day-to-day.


Nielsen to treasure outdoor game with Islanders

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Growing up in Herning, Denmark, New York Islanders center Frans Nielsen said it never really got cold enough for him and his friends to skate outdoors. On those rare occasions, he said, it felt like they had won the lottery.

He's holding another winning ticket, with the prize being a date for him and his team with the New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium on Jan. 29, 2014, as part of the 2014 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series.

"It's awesome," Nielsen told NHL.com. "It's going to be just like it was the first [Stanley Cup] Playoff game, something you'll always remember. It's going to be special. I was very excited when I heard the news [that they'd be playing outside]. Should be fun."


Isles' Vanek embracing the outdoor game experience

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Thomas Vanek learned very quickly one of the benefits to being traded to the New York Islanders.

It wasn't long after the Oct. 27 trade that sent him from the Buffalo Sabres to New York that his phone started ringing, with ticket requests for the 2014 Coors Light Stadium Series game between the Islanders and New York Rangers at Yankee Stadium on Jan. 29, 2014.

"That was one of the first things when I got traded here," Vanek told NHL.com. "Days after I'm getting texts out of nowhere, you guys are playing outdoors. My ticket list is growing."

The Yankee Stadium game will mark the second time Vanek has taken part in an NHL outdoor game. He was with the Sabres on Jan. 1, 2008 for the inaugural NHL Winter Classic at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo.

The day featured more than 70,000 fans packed into the home of the Buffalo Bills, and the game had the raucous atmosphere of an NFL Sunday.

Daily Primer Nov. 24: Wings shuffle off to Buffalo

Sunday, 11.24.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

Maybe a visit to the Buffalo Sabres is what the Detroit Red Wings to snap out of their funk.

The Red Wings pay an early-evening call on the last-place team in the overall standings Sunday, hoping they'll find a way to break out of a slump that has dropped them to fifth place in the Atlantic Division. Detroit is 1-3-5 in its past nine games, including a 4-2 home loss to the Ottawa Senators on Saturday, but the Red Wings are 10-1-1 in their past 12 games against the Sabres and have won five of their past six visits to First Niagara Center.

Here's a look at Sunday's action:


Sunday Long Read: Sid vs. Ovi has defined generation

Sunday, 11.24.2013 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

WASHINGTON -- There have been so many memorable moments, so many indelible images in the careers of Alex Ovechkin and Sidney Crosby since they were the No. 1 picks in back-to-back NHL Drafts. Yet, the outcome of one shot could have made everything different.

The two superstars had willed their teams, Ovechkin's Washington Capitals and Crosby's Pittsburgh Penguins, through six games of an epic, breathtaking Stanley Cup Playoffs series when they collided in a winner-take-all showdown on May 13, 2009 in the Chinatown district of the nation's capital. The series, which offered the potential for greatness and then delivered beyond anyone's highest expectations, had reached its climax.

Less than three minutes into Game 7 at Verizon Center, Ovechkin collected in stride a puck that had caromed off the boards. The red-clad crowd rose to its feet as its favorite Russian locomotive steamed past a helpless defenseman and moved in alone toward the goaltender.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
