Tapped In: Modano looks back at legacy

Mike Modano needs no introduction in the hockey world. He is the all-time goal-scoring and points leader among American-born players in the NHL. Modano, the third child and only son of Michael Sr. and Karen Modano, was born and raised in Michigan. His records speak for themselves, most notably his 1999 Stanley Cup with the Dallas Stars, and his silver in the 2002 Winter Olympics and championship at the 1996 World Cup of Hockey. Off the ice and away from hockey, Modano is an ambassador in the community and is about to take on the biggest role of his life.

Kathryn Tappen: Congratulations! You and your wife Allison (professional golfer Allison Micheletti, daughter of former NHL player and MSG TV analyst Joe Micheletti) are expecting twins in July! How are preparations going?

Mike Modano: It's a work in progress. Trying to get prepared, get the rooms ready. We still have some time before the end of July to get everything ready. We will be real fine-tuned by then. It's exciting. It's another chapter to look forward to for myself and us. We can't wait to meet them.


USA Hockey encouraging cross-ice youth games

Saturday, 03.08.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Jon Lane - NHL.com Staff Writer

"From the eyes of an 8-year-old, a full-sized hockey rink looks a lot bigger."

Those words opened a USA Hockey video designed to educate and deliver a reality check. The game is hard enough for grown men and women on an NHL-size 200-by-85 foot rink. For children 8 years old and under, it's akin to skating from New York to Los Angeles and guarding a net the size of One World Trade Center.

The goal of USA Hockey's American Development Model is to encourage cross-ice games at the 8-and-under level nationwide in lieu of competing on full-size rinks. Those who played a pick-up game recently on Dollar Lake in Eagle River, Wis., were provided a harsh perspective as to why.


Daily Primer March 8: Central Division showdown

Saturday, 03.08.2014 / 12:52 AM / Features


The Colorado Avalanche have quietly moved into the race for the Central Division title. They can make a loud statement with a win on Saturday.

The Avalanche have the fifth-best record in the NHL, but they're only third in their division. A big reason is that they've lost both of their games against the first-place St. Louis Blues. Colorado has a chance to get some revenge and move within a point of the first-place Blues when St. Louis comes to Pepsi Center on Saturday.

Here's a look at all of the action on Saturday:

Ottawa Senators at Winnipeg Jets -- The Senators flew to Winnipeg on Friday after an intense 81-minute practice in Calgary that included a fight between teammates Chris Neil and Jared Cowen. Coach Paul MacLean worked his team hard because he said he wasn't pleased by the effort he saw in a 4-1 loss to the Calgary Flames on Wednesday. The Jets are trying to avoid being swept on a three-game homestand that has seen them lose to the New York Islanders in overtime and the Los Angeles Kings in regulation.


Fans help Del Zotto reunite with young friend

Friday, 03.07.2014 / 8:22 PM / NHL Insider

James Murphy - NHL.com Correspondent

Sometimes it's easy to forget how a trade often uproots a player from his family and the friends he has made in the city he has called home for an extended period of time.

That was the case Jan. 22 when the New York Rangers traded 23-year old defenseman Michael Del Zotto to the Nashville Predators for defenseman Kevin Klein. Single, Del Zotto didn't have to move his family, but he was going to have to leave behind someone who in his four years in New York had become not only his biggest fan but one of his best friends.


MacLean puts Senators through tough practice

Friday, 03.07.2014 / 7:14 PM / News


Two days after Ottawa Senators coach Paul MacLean said he wasn't happy with the effort in a 4-1 loss to the Calgary Flames, his players paid the price.

The Senators spent more than 80 minutes Friday at an intense practice in Calgary that included special-teams work, breakouts and one battle drill that led to a fight between defenseman Jared Cowen and forward Chris Neil. The Ottawa Citizen reported they dropped the gloves and got in a few punches before teammates broke it up.

"We need more of it, preferably when the games are on, but we need more, I don't know, just be harder," MacLean told the Senators website afterward. "That's playing harder. If you're playing harder in practice that stuff is going to practice. Boys are going to be boys, men are going to be men, and we need more of it."

Senators forward MacArthur out with hand injury

Friday, 03.07.2014 / 5:24 PM / News


Ottawa Senators forward Clarke MacArthur will sit out their game Saturday against the Winnipeg Jets with a hand injury and is doubtful for Monday against the Nashville Predators, coach Paul MacLean said after practice Friday.

"It might be longer, who knows?" MacLean said. "We just want to make sure we had our people look at it and make sure what it would be."

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
