Bettman: World Cup top international priority for NHL

Monday, 11.17.2014 / 5:41 PM / News

TORONTO -- A return of the World Cup of Hockey is the focus of the international hockey calendar for the League, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said Monday at the Primetime Sports Management Conference.

Bettman said the NHL's participation in the 2018 Pyeongchang Games is still undecided, and hasn't been at the forefront of discussion in part because of an effort to try and revive the World Cup. Bettman said the League is not ready to make an announcement on when the next World Cup of Hockey would be, but they are working toward an agreement with the National Hockey League Players' Association.

The World Cup of Hockey, which is the successor to the Canada Cup, was first played in 1996. It was also played in 2004, but has been dormant since.

"We really haven't thought about [the Olympics]," Bettman said. "We are focused with the Players' Association on a World Cup. That's been getting all of our attention, and it is something we do jointly with the Players' Association so that is what we're focused on."

Adam Kimelman - Deputy Managing Editor

Eric Lindros and John LeClair always were together on the ice during their time with the Philadelphia Flyers, so it makes sense that when they are inducted into the Flyers Hall of Fame on Thursday they will be honored together.

The pair combined, along with Mikael Renberg, to create the "Legion of Doom" line that helped the Flyers reach the Eastern Conference Final in 1995 and the Stanley Cup Final in 1997.

"[Flyers president] Paul Holmgren gave me a shout, gave Johnny a shout, in September," Lindros said. "Right away we were both deeply honored to get the call and then we started talking a little bit further and we decided to do it together, which was appropriate. Here we are and we're looking forward to Thursday night."


Penguins' Maatta could return Tuesday vs. Canadiens

Monday, 11.17.2014 / 1:52 PM / News

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta practiced Monday and coach Mike Johnston termed him "a game-time decision" for Tuesday against the Montreal Canadiens at Bell Centre.

Maatta had surgery Nov. 4 to remove a cancerous tumor from his thyroid gland. He started skating again a week later, but the original prognosis was for Maatta to miss about four weeks. Tuesday will mark two weeks since the procedure.

"I'm feeling good, I am," Maatta said via the Penguins website. "But we've got to (wait and) see until after [Tuesday] morning's skate, how I'm feeling after that. And then make some decisions after.

"Mentally for sure, I want to get out there. It's been a couple weeks since I've played, so yeah, I'm hungry there. But I've got to still take it easy, not rush it. But we'll see tomorrow."


Rangers' St. Louis: 'It'll be weird' facing Lightning

Mike G. Morreale - Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Martin St. Louis knows it's inevitable he'll find himself opposite Steven Stamkos at some point during the game when his New York Rangers play host to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday at Madison Square Garden.

When it happens, it will mark the first time in eight years St. Louis won't be looking to dish Stamkos the puck for a chance at that wicked one-timer from the circle.

"It's definitely going to be weird; I just hope I don't pass him the puck," St. Louis said.

When told of the comment, Stamkos laughed before offering, "I hope he does; it's been a while since I got a pass from him."

Emotions will certainly be high for St. Louis on Monday when he faces the team he spent 13 seasons with for the first time since a blockbuster trade last March sent the Lightning captain to the Rangers in exchange for their captain, Ryan Callahan, and two draft picks.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
