NHL Network and Sportsnet 1 will televise "Rogers Hometown Hockey" on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. ET, prior to the game between the Florida Panthers and the Detroit Red Wings. The location this week is Wolfville, Nova Scotia, and the show will celebrate the history of hockey in the city.
Energized by a summer respite to recover from double hip replacement surgery, Sean Burke is eager to make his mark on Team Europe and the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.
Burke was goaltending coach and assistant to the general manager for the Arizona Coyotes the past three seasons before leaving the organization in July when his contract expired. He started with the Coyotes as director of prospect development less than a year into his retirement from the NHL, so the medically induced break turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
"It was a good summer for me to mentally get a break and physically do what I needed to do," Burke said. "I've been going hard the last couple of years with the Coyotes, Team Canada, World Junior stuff. It was nice to get away."
Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane scored in the first period to set the point-streak record by an American-born player with a point in his 19th straight game, a 3-2 overtime loss against the Los Angeles Kings at Staples Center on Saturday.
Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid is ahead of schedule in his recovery from a fractured clavicle sustained earlier this month, general manager Peter Chiarelli said Saturday.
McDavid has been working out in Toronto and will meet the Oilers on Monday when they play the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre.
"I won't tell you what our schedule is," Chiarelli told the Oilers website. "He's been rehabbing, normal rehab. Maybe we put a conservative schedule on him and he's ahead. He's doing some exercises in the pool. He's doing some lifting exercises, not with his shoulders. He's working on his range of motion."
"I haven't talked to him today, but the trainers say he's going to be fine for tomorrow," Gallant said.
Jagr remains one goal behind Marcel Dionne for fourth place on the NHL's all-time list with 731 goals. He did not return after leaving the game Friday at 8:39 of the third period, after he had an assist for his Panthers-leading 18th point. Jagr has a goal and four assists during a five-game point streak.
