Sarnia Sting defenseman Anthony DeAngelo realizes he made a mistake at a time when emotions were high. Now he's determined to learn from it and help his team close out the season on a positive note.

The offensive-minded DeAngelo, No. 10 on NHL Central Scouting's midterm ranking of the top North American skaters for the 2014 NHL Draft, was suspended eight games by the Ontario Hockey League earlier this month for violation of the league's harassment and abuse/diversity policy.

He was eligible to return to the lineup Saturday and had two goals, one assist and a plus-3 rating to help the Sting snap an 11-game losing streak with a 6-1 victory against the Ottawa 67's at RBC Centre in Sarnia.

Calling all USA Hockey fans!

If you possess a jersey of your favorite American-born player or team, consider donning the old replica on Friday when Hockey Weekend Across America kicks off a three-day celebration of the sport throughout the United States.

"Hockey Weekend Across America is one of the marquee events on the calendar each year," USA Hockey executive director Dave Ogrean said. "This year will be unique as we'll celebrate Hockey Weekend Across America the weekend immediately following the conclusion of the Olympic Winter Games."


Perlini's success as top prospect a family affair

Thursday, 02.27.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Aaron Vickers - NHL.com Correspondent

Brendan Perlini shoulders the heritage of an impressive hockey lineage on his back. Literally.

The son of longtime international standout Fred Perlini, Brendan wears No. 11 for the Niagara IceDogs of the Ontario Hockey League as a tribute to his father's playing days with the Guildford Flames of the British Hockey League.

"Basically most of the top footballers over there, if they're bringing in a big signing, they give them 11," Brendan said. "That's what the team did with my dad and it just kind of stuck with him over there and then his last game he got the number retired by the team.

"That’s where I grew up playing. Me and my brother both wear 11. It just kind of stuck with us too."


Avalanche's MacKinnon leads race for Calder

With three-quarters of the 2013-14 season complete, NHL.com looks at some of the biggest storylines and award contenders.

The number of precocious newcomers to the NHL seems to increase annually, and that's made handicapping the Calder Trophy race for 2013-14 more difficult than predicting exactas.

But there's something about Nathan MacKinnon's makeup. Life in the League immediately became routine for the 18-year-old Colorado Avalanche rookie, who was taken No. 1 in a fertile 2013 NHL Draft.

"First time I met him I realized this is going to be a piece of cake for him on his own," Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog said. "Off the ice you can't tell he's a rookie. He's certainly one of the guys on the ice. He's gotten more and more comfortable as the season has gone along and gotten better and better and has been one our best players over the past couple of months."


Senators recall Hammond with Anderson at home

Wednesday, 02.26.2014 / 6:07 PM / News


The Ottawa Senators have recalled goaltender Andrew Hammond to serve as the backup to Robin Lehner on Thursday in the absence of Craig Anderson.

Anderson traveled home to Florida this week to be with his wife, who was expecting the couple's second child.

The Senators announced the recall of Hammond from Binghamton of the American Hockey League on Wednesday, and the Ottawa Sun reported he would back up Lehner against the Detroit Red Wings.

"Nothing forthcoming at this point," coach Paul MacLean said after practice prior to the recall. "We'll wait to hear, and right now we're prepared for Robin to be the goalie, and if we need to bring Hammond or [Nathan] Lawson, we're prepared to do that. So right now that's where it stands."

Wednesday, 02.26.2014 / 5:11 PM / 2014 Trade Deadline


The Minnesota Wild acquired veteran forward Brad Winchester from the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday in a trade for defenseman Brian Connelly.

Winchester, 32, has 16 goals and 30 points in 55 games this season with Rockford of the American Hockey League.

A second-round pick (No. 35) of the Edmonton Oilers in the 2000 NHL Draft, he has 37 goals and 68 points in 390 NHL games with the Oilers, Dallas Stars, St. Louis Blues, Anaheim Ducks and San Jose Sharks.


Blackhawks' Kane senses better days ahead

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- His stats dipped after the new year started and he didn't score a single goal for the United States at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, but Patrick Kane isn't concerned.

In fact, he sounds quite the opposite heading into the Chicago Blackhawks' final stretch of 22 games in the regular season.

"I'm excited about what we have left in the season," Kane said Wednesday, after his first practice since returning from Russia. "I think going through the Olympics was obviously a little bit of a struggle, but I still feel like I played decent and had enough chances to put up some good numbers. It just didn't happen that way. I'm actually, if you can believe it or not, excited where my game is and where I can improve and get better."

NASHVILLE -- The Nashville Predators announced Wednesday they will send goalie Pekka Rinne, who has missed the past four months with a hip infection, to the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League on a conditioning assignment, signifying the two-time Vezina Trophy finalist is close to playing NHL games.

Coach Barry Trotz would not say when Rinne, 31, might be able to return to the ice for the Predators. Nashville has not set any kind of timetable during Rinne's rehabilitation process, but the goalie said he is close.

"I'm just going to try and focus on trying to get my own game back, but so far I feel real comfortable," Rinne said. "I'm happy how things have gone in practices and how things have gone so far. I'm actually a little bit surprised it's been going so well, but like I said, it's still a process.

"For sure, I feel like I'm really close to the game shape and now it's just a final couple of games before I jump on the ice with the Nashville team."

I came into a team that had 65 points, that was at the bottom of the basement, a team that everybody wrote off as never going to be good. My goal is to go from the very bottom to the very top.
