Tapped In: Sharp embraces life in Windy City

Saturday, 02.01.2014 / 3:00 AM / Tapped In

Kathryn Tappen - NHL.com Contributor

He may be considered one of Chicago's sexiest athletes as voted by publications on multiple occasions, but Patrick Sharp is all about hockey. The father of two baby girls, Sharp has two Stanley Cups, will represent Canada at the 2014 Sochi Olympics and serves as a radio host. Yet, somehow the Chicago Blackhawks star still has time to give back to the community where he grew up. There's not much Sharp hasn't accomplished.

Kathryn Tappan: What is the best part about playing hockey in Chicago?

Patrick Sharp: The fans. The city is great, there's so much to do. But the way the fans respond to the players, especially for guys like Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook and I that were here in 2005 when things weren't so good in Chicago. We really appreciate how the fans take care of us now.

KT: Two Stanley Cups for you in that city. Do you ever pinch yourself with what you've already accomplished in your career?

Goalies, Filppula new injury concerns for Lightning

Friday, 01.31.2014 / 10:25 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- Tampa Bay Lightning backup goalie Anders Lindback is not likely to play before the Olympic break due to a lower-body injury and starting goalie Ben Bishop remains questionable to start the game Saturday against the Montreal Canadiens (1 p.m. ET, CBC, RDS), coach Jon Cooper said.

Bishop was forced to leave the game Thursday against the Ottawa Senators when he was struck in the head by the skate of teammate Nikita Kucherov. Bishop took part in the Lightning's practice at Bell Centre on Friday and said if he wakes up feeling well, he'll be able to play.

"It could have been a lot worse," Bishop said. "He kind of skimmed me. If he hit me direct on I don't know what would have happened.

"Hopefully I wake up in the morning and I feel OK. We'll have to wait and see what happens."

Kings defenseman Regehr reaches 1,000th game

Friday, 01.31.2014 / 6:41 PM / NHL Insider

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The dream of making it to the NHL never wavered in Robyn Regehr's mind, even at its most dramatic point.

Like many teenage boys in Saskatchewan, Regehr began to visualize being one of the few who gets to play at the highest level of hockey. But that took a near-tragic turn when Regehr was involved in a car accident at 19 that left him with two broken legs.

"I never had a doubt [about playing] hockey again," Regehr said. "When I talked to doctors, they said it was close. I almost sliced my patella tendon. If I would have severed the patella, I probably never would have played any sport, let alone hockey again.

"I didn't really think about how long I was going to play. I just wanted a chance to play. After that, as a lot of guys say, it goes by fairly quickly."

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
