Akeson hopes hard work carries him back to NHL

Friday, 10.18.2013 / 1:15 PM / AHL Update

Alyssa Dombrowski - Special to NHL.com

It's not easy to be known as "the hardest working man in the business," but when it comes to hockey, that won't deter Jason Akeson from his pursuit of the title.

"I've always said if you're the hardest working guy on the ice and are doing all the little things right, then that's what's going to give you a shot to make it," he said.

It's his devotion to hard work that has carried the 23-year-old this far. Undrafted, the one-time Ontario Hockey League scoring champion signed an entry-level deal with the Philadelphia Flyers in 2011 and has spent the majority of the past two seasons with the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms.

The Toronto Maple Leafs could have goaltender James Reimer and forward James van Riemsdyk in the lineup Saturday for their game against the Chicago Blackhawks (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US, CBC).

Reimer practiced Friday after leaving the Maple Leafs' game Thursday against the Carolina Hurricanes after just 32 seconds following a collision with teammate Josh Leivo.

Reimer was attempting to recover a rebound when a backchecking Leivo appeared to make contact with the goalie's head. Reimer lay on the ice before skating with assistance to the locker room. Coach Randy Carlyle said after the game Reimer had a headache.


Wilson to remain with Capitals all season

Friday, 10.18.2013 / 12:12 PM / News

The Washington Capitals have told forward Tom Wilson he's staying put in the NHL.

Wilson has played in seven games with the Capitals this season. His entry-level contract kicks in after he plays in his ninth game.

"It's huge. It's awesome. It definitely makes me feel a little more comfortable," Wilson said in meeting with reporters after he received the news from general manager George McPhee and coach Adam Oates.

The 19-year-old made his NHL debut during last season's Stanley Cup Playoffs, playing three games in the Capitals' first-round series loss to the New York Rangers.


Callahan's absence leaves Rangers in tough spot

Friday, 10.18.2013 / 11:15 AM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Ryan Callahan isn't the kind of player who will go end-to-end to score the highlight-reel goal, and if you're looking for a Knute Rockne-style speechmaker, you're probably going to be disappointed.

But if you're looking for a player who can make plays in the offensive zone and defensive zone with equal ability and lead more with deeds than words, Callahan is your man.

That's why he's the New York Rangers' captain, and why they're in a tough spot now that he's going to miss as much as a month with a broken thumb sustained Wednesday in a win over the Washington Capitals.


Super 16: Western Conference off to dominant start

Friday, 10.18.2013 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Western Conference has had its way with its brethren from the Eastern Conference in recent seasons, but the move of a perennial power in the Detroit Red Wings (and the young and improving Columbus Blue Jackets) in realignment was expected to shift some of the balance of regular-season power.

It hasn't materialized to this point. Teams from the Western Conference were 31-11-4 in games against Eastern Conference foes through the end of games Wednesday, which equates to a pace of nearly 118 points in a full season.

In the new divisional playoff format, a fifth-place team from one division can usurp a Stanley Cup Playoff berth from the fourth-place finisher in the other. If there could be crossover between the conferences, 10 teams from the West would be in the playoffs if they had started Thursday.


Daily Primer Oct. 18: Ducks go for six

Friday, 10.18.2013 / 1:38 AM / NHL Insider

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

The Anaheim Ducks got their season off on the wrong foot when they lost 6-1 to the Colorado Avalanche in their opener. Since then, however, they've been perfect. The Ducks bring a five-game winning streak into their game against the Phoenix Coyotes at Honda Center, one of two games on the NHL schedule Friday night.

It's the first time in franchise history the Ducks have won five of their first six games, though they're coming off a 3-2 victory against the Calgary Flames on Wednesday that required goaltender Viktor Fasth to make 33 saves.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
