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."

Panthers' Trocheck ready for next level

Friday, 03.07.2014 / 12:20 PM / AHL Update

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

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

Friday, 03.07.2014 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

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.

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."

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
