Canadiens' injury situation picks up where it left off

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- A big reason why the Montreal Canadiens were able to ride a strong start to the 2012-13 season into the Stanley Cup Playoffs as the second seed in the Eastern Conference came down to the team's relative health.

The Canadiens did not have to deal with too many major injuries for most of last season. When they did come, though, they came in bunches.

It began with defenseman Alexei Emelin's knee injury April 6 and continued in the playoffs with forwards Lars Eller, Brian Gionta, Max Pacioretty, Brandon Prust and Ryan White all getting hurt during Montreal's five-game, first-round loss to the Ottawa Senators.

The Canadiens were unable to recover from the loss of those players, and a big reason was because they didn't learn how to deal with massive losses like that in the regular season.

That shouldn't be a problem this season.

Longtime NHL defenseman Roman Hamrlik announced his retirement on Monday.

Hamrlik, the No. 1 pick of the 1992 NHL Draft, played 20 seasons and appeared in 1,395 NHL games with the Tampa Bay Lightning, Edmonton Oilers, New York Islanders, Calgary Flames, Montreal Canadiens, Washington Capitals and New York Rangers.

Gustavsson, Crosby and Marleau named 'Three Stars'

Monday, 10.21.2013 / 12:00 PM / News


NEW YORKDetroit Red Wings goaltender Jonas Gustavsson, Pittsburgh Penguins center Sidney Crosby and San Jose Sharks left wing Patrick Marleau have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending Oct. 20.


Making his first three appearances of the 2013-14 season, Gustavsson posted a 3-0-0 record with a 1.67 goals-against average and .953 save percentage in helping the Red Wings (6-3-0) move into first place in the Atlantic Division. He recorded victories on consecutive days for the first time since Jan. 23-24, 2012, posting 28 saves in a 3-2 triumph over the Boston Bruins Oct. 14 and 36 stops in a 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets Oct. 15. Gustavsson then handed the Colorado Avalanche their first loss of the season, making 38 saves – the fourth-highest total of his NHL career and most since Nov. 19, 2011 (with Toronto) – in a 4-2 victory Oct. 17. The 28-year-old native of Danderyd, Sweden, has played in 117 games during his five-year NHL career, compiling a 44-47-16 record with a 2.94 goals-against average, .901 save percentage and five shutouts.


Fantasy All-Access: Okposo, Mason worth a grab

Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

The top of the fantasy world is alright as Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby has started the season with a career-best eight-game point streak to start the season. He'll square off against fellow Cole Harbour native and No. 1 pick Nathan MacKinnon on Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2). MacKinnon has seven points in his first eight NHL games played. To compare that to Crosby, in his draft year of 2005 he had 11 points in his first eight NHL games, showing it is good to be at the top, where we hope your fantasy team is right now.

Kyle Okposo
Right Wing - NYI
GOALS: 3 | ASST: 5 | PTS: 8
SOG: 17 | +/-: 2

Kyle Okposo, New York Islanders (owned in 37 percent of Yahoo leagues) -- The fantasy world has seen what John Tavares can do for others' fantasy value; see Matt Moulson, Brad Boyes and PA Parenteau. The most recent success story is the seventh pick of the 2006 draft, as Okposo has started the season with three goals and five assists while playing on the wing with Tavares. The 6-foot right wing showed his potential to be a dominant player during the Stanley Cup Playoffs with four points in a six-game series against the Penguins. The Islanders play three games this week (VAN, @PIT, PHI), with a back-to-back on Friday and Saturday, and we expect big things for the Minnesota native.
