Penguins' Letang recovering from stroke

Friday, 02.07.2014 / 12:55 PM / News

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Kris Letang will miss at least six weeks after suffering a stroke last week, the Penguins announced Friday.

Letang's condition is not believed to be career threatening and is treatable with blood thinners. Testing revealed that Letang, who has missed Pittsburgh's past four games, has had a small hole in the wall of his heart since birth, a defect that occurs in all individuals before birth but seals shut in most people.

The hole could have led to Letang's stroke, according to a Penguins press release.

"Kris had one brief episode of dizziness and nausea last week," Penguins general manager Ray Shero said in the release. "We held him out of the Los Angeles game [Jan. 30], and when he continued to feel ill, tests conducted in Phoenix on Saturday gave us the first indication of his condition. Further testing then was conducted when he returned to Pittsburgh and he continued to undergo a battery of tests here this week."

Coyotes to honor 10 players from 'Miracle on Ice'

Friday, 02.07.2014 / 12:30 PM / 2014 Olympics

Jerry Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- All 20 members of the hockey team that provided the greatest sports moment of the 20th century still are, as captain Mike Eruzione put it, "out there alive and kicking."

In the 34 years since the United States men's hockey team performed its "Miracle on Ice" at the 1980 Lake Placid Olympics, all 20 have come together exactly two times: Once as part of the 2002 NHL All-Star Game, and one year later for the funeral of their legendary coach, Herb Brooks.

"We had a reception at the White House the day after we won the goal medal. And after lunch, that was it. We headed home," Eruzione said. "We were together every day for six months. We reached our ultimate goal and then it was, 'OK, I'll see ya around.' And after that it's about leading your life. But that bond is always there, and when we see each other it all comes flooding back."

Super 16: Johansen followed own path to stardom

Friday, 02.07.2014 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The lead-up to the 2010 NHL Draft was dominated by a simple question: Taylor or Tyler?

Taylor Hall and Tyler Seguin were the top two picks in that draft, and each has had a strong start to his NHL career. Each has been a high-profile player from day one, and Carolina Hurricanes forward Jeff Skinner was also great as an 18-year-old, collecting the 2011 Calder Trophy.

Ryan Johansen has been in the NHL for as long as those three players, but his development curve was different. He put up modest numbers in his first two seasons, showing flashes of the potential that made him the fourth pick in the draft but lots of inconsistency as well.

Johansen might be the most improved player in the League in 2013-14. He's become a monster in the middle, the prototype franchise center the Blue Jackets hoped for on draft day.

Islanders duo hopes to help Austria pull off an upset

Thursday, 02.06.2014 / 4:40 PM / 2014 Olympics

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- New York Islanders forwards Thomas Vanek and Michael Grabner know the task of helping Austria bring home a medal from the 2014 Sochi Olympics will be as close to impossible as it gets. But that doesn't mean they're not prepared to give it their best shot.

"It's exciting," Vanek said Thursday before the Islanders hosted the Calgary Flames at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. "Anytime you can play and represent your country, especially at this level, it'll be fun. Obviously, we're a big underdog, but that's OK. Hopefully we can surprise a few people."

This will be Austria's first appearance in the Olympics since 2002. They will compete in Group B with Norway, along with projected powerhouses Canada and Finland. Austria will face Finland next Thursday.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
