Monday, 12.01.2014 / 12:40 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- Injured Erie Otters center Connor McDavid is on schedule to start the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship on time, Hockey Canada director of player personnel Ryan Jankowski said Monday.

McDavid was one of 29 players named Monday to Canada's National Junior Team selection camp, which begins Dec. 11 in Toronto.

Considered one of the top two players available for the 2015 NHL Draft, McDavid sustained a fractured bone in his right hand in a game against the Mississauga Steelheads on Nov. 11 and was expected to miss up to six weeks.

"Everything's coming along real well with Connor. I think we're real happy and Connor's real happy with the recovery," Jankowski said. "He has another doctor's appointment on Dec. 9 when we'll learn a little bit more. But everything is on time for him to be back for the start of the tournament. Hopefully we have no setbacks with that along the way."

Fantasy All-Access: Get Lightning's Killorn if you can

Matt Sitkoff - NHL.com Contributor

Every Monday, NHL.com contributor Matt Sitkoff identifies waiver wire pickups, roster trends, schedule notes and a prospect to watch in fantasy hockey.

WAIVER WIRE WATCH

Alex Killorn, Tampa Bay Lightning (owned in 9 percent of Yahoo Leagues) -- Playing on a line with Steven Stamkos, the third-year forward has points in seven straight games; he has five goals, three assists, 16 shots on goal and is a plus-4 in that span. Last season he had career-highs of 17 goals and 41 points, and he has a career average of 0.53 points per game. The Lightning have four games scheduled this week (at the New York Rangers, a home and home with the Buffalo Sabres, home for the Columbus Blue Jackets). With three games against teams that entered the week ranked near the bottom of goals-against per game, now is a perfect time to pick up Killorn.

Jeff Sauer built coaching success on communication

Monday, 12.01.2014 / 3:00 AM / U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame

David Kalan - NHL.com Staff Writer

In decades of coaching, Jeff Sauer had to learn many different ways to communicate with his players.

These days, he is using that ability with the American Hearing Impaired Hockey Association.

"The big thing with the [hearing-impaired] kids is just giving them a chance," Sauer said. "By giving them a chance, they really bond together well and they really stick up for each other. ... It's rejuvenated me from a coaching standpoint."

Sauer, who will be inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame on Thursday, has worked with the American Hearing Impaired Hockey Association, of which he is now president, for more than four decades. His relationship with the organization started when, as Sauer tells it, a parent of a deaf player in the Stan Mikita Hockey School for the Hearing Impaired asked if their son and another player could participate in a camp Sauer was running when he coached at Colorado College. Four days later, Sauer was asked if he would continue working with the school, and he has been a part of the American Hearing Impaired Hockey Association ever since.

Gordie Howe 'comfortable' after another minor stroke

Sunday, 11.30.2014 / 8:43 PM / News

NHL.com

Gordie Howe had another minor stroke Saturday, but his son told the Detroit Free Press on Sunday that Mr. Hockey is comfortable.

"We were able to get rid of his back pain, so basically he's kind of resting comfortably," Mark Howe told George Sipple of the Free Press at the Detroit Red Wings-Vancouver Canucks game at Joe Louis Arena. "I'd say he probably has more good days than bad days. I mean, it's hard. He's not walking. Speech is extremely, extremely difficult.

"He knows what we're saying. He understands what's going on. When you're there with him, you can interact; it's still a nice thing."

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
