Avalanche's MacKinnon excited to face Crosby

Monday, 10.21.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Rick Sadowski  -  NHL.com Correspondent

CENTENNIAL, Colo. -- They share the same hometown, went to the same prep school, starred in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, play the same position and were the first players selected in their respective NHL Drafts.

So it should hardly come as a surprise that Colorado Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon has been drawing comparisons to Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby for much of his life.

Monday night, they'll face each other in an NHL game for the first time when the teams play at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2, ROOT).


New era begins at Boston University

A new era in one of the most storied college hockey programs began on Oct. 11 when David Quinn stepped behind the bench for Boston University for his first NCAA game against the University of Massachusetts.

Quinn has the unenviable task of replacing a legend. He took over from Jack Parker, who in 40 years with the Terriers set the NCAA record for career wins at one school with 894, won national championships in 1978, 1995 and 2009, and left his successor with some huge shoes to fill.

How does the 11th coach in BU history pick up where Parker left off?


Crosby expects 'intense competition' vs. MacKinnon

Monday, 10.21.2013 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

A rookie center from Nova Scotia has put the National Hockey League on notice in the first month of his career.

Sound familiar?

Eight years ago, an 18-year-old Sidney Crosby scored 10 points (two goals, eight assists) through the first eight games of his rookie season. Similarly, the first pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, Nathan MacKinnon, has scored seven points (one goal, six assists) in his first eight games with the Colorado Avalanche.

The comparisons between the Nova Scotia natives are natural and will be put on display for the first time when the Avalanche travel to face the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday (7:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, TSN2, RDS2).


Jones leaving little doubt he belongs with Predators

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

When Seth Jones arrived at Nashville Predators training camp last month, he didn't want his family to make the move with him until he was assured he would be starting the season with the team.

Predators general manager David Poile and coach Barry Trotz made no effort to hide that the No. 4 pick in the 2013 NHL Draft would be doing just that, but Jones still didn't want to take any chances.

So Jones lived with Predators captain Shea Weber, the present and future of the franchise under one roof, playing video games together and getting to know each other.

High demand for MacKinnon gear in Cole Harbour

COLE HARBOUR, Nova Scotia -- If any residents of this town of a little more than 25,000 people went looking for a last-minute purchase of a Colorado Avalanche jersey with No. 29 on the back Sunday -- the day before Nathan MacKinnon plays against his idol, Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, for the first time -- they went home disappointed.

While Crosby-related memorabilia has been a huge seller dating back to his days with Rimouski Oceanic in the Quebec Major Junior League, stores in Cole Harbour and neighboring towns are moving MacKinnon merchandise about as fast as they can get it.


Crosby, MacKinnon making Cole Harbour proud

COLE HARBOUR, Nova Scotia -- The sun rose here a little after 7:30 a.m. on a peaceful Sunday, though its effect was blunted by a cloudy morning.

There are as many signs for deer crossings near the actual harbor as there are for speed limits, something that might someday save the life of the four-point buck that had wondered into a front yard on Davies Lane just before sunrise.

First impressions of Cole Harbour probably aren't much different than most towns this size, a little more than 25,000 residents, in any part of Canada.

The welcome sign is in the shadow of the Walmart. There are several Tim Hortons and a grocery store that advertises exclusive access to Schwartz's famous smoked meat.

There is enough elevation around to provide sweeping vistas of trees splashed with every shade of red, orange and yellow leaves that make this time of year so beautiful in this corner of the world. Those trees are everywhere, save for the places human development or a body of water don't allow them.


Flyers could have Lecavalier back Thursday

Sunday, 10.20.2013 / 7:22 PM / News


In need of some good news as well as some offense, the Philadelphia Flyers could have center Vincent Lecavalier back this week.

Lecavalier might return from a lower-body injury that has sidelined him since Oct. 11 as early as Thursday at Wells Fargo Center against the New York Rangers.

"Hopefully, I'll play on Thursday, but we'll see how things go," he said after skating Sunday for the first time since he was injured.


Rangers recall Kreider, Mashinter, Talbot

Sunday, 10.20.2013 / 5:43 PM / News


The New York Rangers on Sunday recalled forwards Chris Kreider and Brandon Mashinter and goaltender Cam Talbot from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League.

Forward Darroll Powe and goaltender Jason Missiaen were reassigned to Hartford.

Kreider will be making his season debut for the Rangers. He has two goals, both on the power play, and four points for Hartford. Kreider had two goals and one assist in 23 games with the Rangers last season, then added the overtime goal in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series against the Boston Bruins. In 26 career Stanley Cup Playoff games, he has six goals and nine points.


Islanders' Grabner facing hearing

Sunday, 10.20.2013 / 5:07 PM / Department of Player Safety News


New York Islanders forward Michael Grabner will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Monday for an incident against the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday at Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

At approximately 6:42 of the first period, Grabner collided with Hurricanes forward Nathan Gerbe in the left wing faceoff circle, sending Gerbe to the ice. There was no penalty called on the play and Gerbe took his regular shifts throughout the game.

The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: illegal check to the head. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.

Carolina won the game, 4-3.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
