Predators' Forsberg emerges as early Calder favorite

Wednesday, 11.26.2014 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Two seasons ago Filip Forsberg was impressing NHL scouts with regularity in his native Sweden.

At the time, he was regarded as the top European skater eligible for the 2012 NHL Draft because he had a nose for the net, better-than-average speed and played an effective two-way game. Goran Stubb, the NHL Director of European Scouting, compared him to Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry because in addition to sacrificing himself to make the big play, he had a knack for scoring the big goal.

"He started playing with men at an early age and when you do that it forces you to mature earlier and forces you to start playing the professional game right away," Colorado Avalanche captain and fellow Swede Gabriel Landeskog said. "I think it's probably helped him in the transition coming over here and having played so many years of professional hockey back home. I played with him on a few teams back home and he's a skilled player, very talented."

Canucks remember Quinn with video, 'Danny Boy'

Tuesday, 11.25.2014 / 11:23 PM / News

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks celebrated the life and legacy of former coach, general manager and president Pat Quinn with a moment of silence and singing of "Danny Boy" prior to playing the New Jersey Devils at Rogers Arena on Tuesday.

Quinn died at age 71 Sunday after a lengthy illness.

The Canucks will wear decals on their helmets with the initials "PQ" inside a four-leaf clover for the rest of the season, a fitting nod to a man known to many as "The Big Irishman," and there are plans to honor Quinn with a larger ceremony at a game later in the season.

After an emotional two days, singer Mark Donnelly hit all the right notes as a video tribute played on the scoreboard and the spotlight shone on Quinn's image in his spot in the Canucks' Ring of Honor.

Right wing Daniel Alfredsson, who spent nearly two decades with the Ottawa Senators, will announce his retirement in Ottawa next Thursday, according to multiple media outlets.

Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun confirmed Tuesday an earlier report from TSN's Darren Dreger that Alfredsson has decided to call it a career.

Last season, his first with the Detroit Red Wings after spending his first 17 NHL seasons with the Ottawa Senators, Alfredsson tied for the Red Wings lead with 49 points in 68 games. He had hoped his back would be strong enough for him to return to the Red Wings for a second season, but he sustained a setback during informal skates before training camp.

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.

— Predators defenseman Seth Jones after Nashville was eliminated by Chicago in Game 6 on Saturday
