Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NHL.com's weekly Q&A feature called "Five Questions With …" runs every Tuesday. We talk to key figures in the game today and ask them questions to gain insight into their lives, careers and the latest news.

The latest edition features Columbus Blue Jackets president of hockey operations John Davidson:

John Davidson didn't need to hear the end of the question before he started answering in the affirmative.

"It's our biggest game of the year," Davidson, the Columbus Blue Jackets president of hockey operations, told NHL.com on Monday.

He's talking about Columbus' home game Tuesday against the Detroit Red Wings (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2), and there's no arguing with him on this one.

Choices abound for Central Scouting's No. 1 ranking

Tuesday, 03.25.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

TORONTO -- Is it possible to predict the No. 1 choice at the 2014 NHL Draft in June?

If you were to ask five scouts to provide their top choice right now, you would hear several different names at the top.

At this stage in the season there seems to be four legitimate contenders in the mix for top honors: Forwards Samuel Bennett of the Kingston Frontenacs of the Ontario Hockey League, Leon Draisaitl of the Prince Albert Raiders of the Western Hockey League and Sam Reinhart of the Kootenay Ice of the WHL, and defenseman Aaron Ekblad of the Barrie Colts of the OHL.

There's also a chance forward Michael Dal Colle of the Oshawa Generals of the OHL also might sneak into the mix at some point prior to the announcement of the No. 1 selection June 27 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

There should be plenty of debate and intrigue when NHL Central Scouting starts its final meetings Wednesday in Toronto as they come together to set the final rankings for the 2014 NHL Draft.

While those rankings won't be released until next month, NHL.com has recruited two veteran NHL scouts, one from a team in each conference, in the interim to provide their first-round projections in exchange for anonymity.

The following mock drafts might be the closest thing you'll see anywhere on the Internet in terms of how the opening round of the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia turn out.

Canadiens' Budaj comes up big again in Boston

Tuesday, 03.25.2014 / 1:56 AM / NHL Insider

James Murphy - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTONMontreal Canadiens goalie Peter Budaj did it to the Boston Bruins again on Monday night.

For whatever reason, Montreal's backup goaltender plays his best every time he gets the nod against the Bruins at TD Garden. Budaj held the fort early for the Canadiens, finished regulation and overtime with 28 saves and then stopped four shots in the shootout to help the Canadiens snap Boston's 12-game win streak with a 2-1 victory.

Gaborik still trying to fit in with Kings

Monday, 03.24.2014 / 11:50 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

PHILADELPHIA -- Darryl Sutter shrugs his shoulders and shakes his head when he's asked about the impact Marian Gaborik could have on the Los Angeles Kings in the Stanley Cup Playoffs next month and possibly beyond.

Marian Gaborik
Right Wing - LAK
GOALS: 8 | ASST: 10 | PTS: 18
SOG: 72 | +/-: -1
It's possible he's playing coy, but Sutter, the Kings coach, repeatedly said after Los Angeles' 3-2 win Monday against the Philadelphia Flyers that he really doesn't know what to expect from Gaborik because he doesn't know him well enough yet.

"We just got him, and it's not easy for a player at the deadline to come in, it's not easy to come to a good team," Sutter said. "It's got nothing to do with the player. Quite honestly, I couldn't tell you. I really don't know."

NEW YORK -- Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith was forced to leave the game against the New York Rangers on Monday night with a lower-body injury.

With 7:34 remaining in regulation and the Coyotes leading 3-2, Smith favored his right leg and was in obvious discomfort after forward Derick Brassard fell on top of him following a scramble in front of the net.

"He's being evaluated now. We'll see," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "It's early. We don't know anything about it yet."

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
