If there's anyone who can understand the trials and tribulations of an athlete's first year as a professional, it's a longtime friend who is experiencing the same transition alongside him.

Rookies Derek Forbort and Nick Shore of the American Hockey League's Manchester Monarchs have a history that dates back to when they were teammates in the United States National Team Development Program, capturing a gold medal at the 2010 World Under-18 Championship.

"The first time we met was with the U-17 National Development Program [in 2008-09], where he played in a tournament with us," Shore said of Forbort. "The next year he joined the team full-time, so I got to know him a lot better."

Blackhawks look forward to visit from red-hot Ducks

Friday, 01.17.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Even the defending Stanley Cup champions are curious to see how they measure up against the Anaheim Ducks.

The Chicago Blackhawks get that chance Friday, when the red-hot Ducks put their eight-game winning streak on the line at United Center (8 p.m. ET, NHLN, RDS). With a 9-1 win against the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday, Anaheim joined the 1967-68 Montreal Canadiens as the only NHL teams to have won 18 of 19 games in the same regular season.

The Ducks are six points ahead of the Blackhawks in the Presidents' Trophy race. Each team will be playing its 50th game of the season Friday.

"They're on a roll right now, so it'll be fun to try to get a win from them," Blackhawks defenseman Duncan Keith said. "When you're on a roll like they are, the rest of the League is going to take notice. When you've got one loss in your last [19] games you've gotta expect something like that to be said, right? They're playing great, so we'd like to beat them."

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
