Fedorov retired from the NHL in 2009 as the all-time leading scorer among Russian players with 483 goals and 696 assists for 1,179 points in 1,248 games. He scored 400 goals and had 554 assists for 954 points in 908 games with the Red Wings. He had 176 points in 183 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Cup winner DiPenta leading fight against blood cancer

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Joe DiPenta accomplished the ultimate goal of his NHL career in 2007 when he won the Stanley Cup as a member of the Anaheim Ducks.

He has since taken on an even greater objective in the fight against cancer as executive director of the Atlantic Canada chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) of Canada.

"When I lifted that Cup above my head, those were the best six seconds of my life and the pinnacle of my career because it was the exclamation point for all the hard work and sacrifices that went into having that moment," DiPenta said. "I believe one day we'll have a similar feeling in discovering a cure for blood cancer.

"I'm already seeing it and the feeling is right up there with that feeling I had winning the Cup. It's a lofty goal, it's a dream and it's something I'm striving towards."

ST. PAUL, Minn.-- Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise left a 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators Thursday in the first period with a lower-body injury.

Parise collided with Predators forward James Neal near the right half-wall in the Wild offensive zone 1:05 into the game. Neal's left knee made contact with Parise's right knee. Neal was not assessed a penalty for the hit.

Parise got to his feet slowly and limped down the tunnel. He returned to the bench shortly after, but with 2:23 remaining in the period limped down the runway again and did not return.

Wild coach Mike Yeo said Parise will not play Saturday against the Tampa Bay Lightning. An update on his condition will be provided Friday.

New York Rangers left wing Rick Nash sustained a back injury at practice Thursday and is day-to-day.

"I just threw it out, I couldn't move, it locked up," Nash told Northjersey.com. "I've had locked up backs, but the last two and a half years I've been pretty good that way. I just have to put my trust in the trainers ... and get it to keep moving. It felt good the first three drills, then I twisted it and it went out on me."

Crosby, Tavares know what Babcock brings to Canada

Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby and New York Islanders center John Tavares could have big roles for Team Canada at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

They'll know what it takes to play for coach Mike Babcock, who was named Team Canada coach Thursday.

Crosby and Tavares were teammates under Babcock with Canada at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Canada won all six of its games and outscored its opponents 17-3. It won the gold medal with a 3-0 shutout of Sweden.

Crosby was captain of the 2014 team and played for Babcock at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, when Canada also won gold.

Each player said Babcock's ability to communicate his plans was key to winning.

"Obviously guys have to understand their roles pretty quickly," Crosby said. "So whether it's the guys he puts together or what he communicates along with the whole coaching staff, I think it's been pretty clear. You know what your role is going to be and how you are going to help the team, and I think that is really important."

Babcock vs. Quenneville tough choice for Canada GM

Thursday, 11.05.2015 / 3:49 PM / World Cup of Hockey 2016

Tim Wharnsby - NHL.com Correspondent

TORONTO -- Doug Armstrong had a difficult decision to make when it came time to name the Team Canada coach for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

The evidence Armstrong, GM of Team Canada, had to consider was Mike Babcock's international success vs. Joel Quenneville's recent run of success with three Stanley Cups in six seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks.

In the end, Armstrong went with Babcock, 52, who not only steered the Detroit Red Wings to the 2008 Stanley Cup but led Canada to back-to-back Olympic gold-medal performances in 2010 (Vancouver) and 2014 (Sochi). Babcock is in his first season as coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Quenneville was named as one of Team Canada's assistant coaches, along with Claude Julien of the Boston Bruins, Barry Trotz of the Washington Capitals and Bill Peters of the Carolina Hurricanes.
