Flames' Granlund ready to make his mark

Tuesday, 02.04.2014 / 3:00 AM / In the Pipeline

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

ABBOTSFORD -- Calgary Flames prospect Markus Granlund always will be the younger brother of Mikael Granlund, who is a year older and was picked a round earlier by the Minnesota Wild.

The big question is whether Markus always will be known as Mikael's little brother. Midway through his first season in North America, the Flames think their Granlund might just escape that shadow.

Mikael, who was taken ninth in the 2010 NHL Draft, has five goals and 28 points in 44 games in his second NHL season. Markus, picked in the second round (No. 45) by Calgary in 2011, leads the Abbotsford Heat and all American Hockey League rookies with 19 goals, and his 34 points in 41 games rank second in team scoring and fifth among rookies.

"A young star in the waiting," Heat coach Troy Ward said.

Kevin Roy brings Beanpot hope to Northeastern

Monday, 02.03.2014 / 10:43 AM / On Campus

Bob Snow - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTON -- It's been a long drought since the Northeastern University Huskies won the Beanpot Tournament, played annually the first two Mondays in February in Boston since 1952.

Twenty-six years to be exact.

If a 5-foot-10, 170-pound kid from Lac-Beauport, Quebec -- and his NU teammates -- can replicate last season's Beanpot effort in the first round, the second Monday this February could be a historic date in the school's long and storied hockey history.

Last February Kevin Roy, then a freshman, pumped home three goals in the first-round game against Boston University, punching Northeastern's ticket to a Boston bragging-rights shot against Boston College in the championship game.
