Eddie Lack's first season with the Carolina Hurricanes has been a bumpy ride. He was splitting time with Cam Ward and struggled to string together successive solid starts.

But that trend changed when Ward was diagnosed with a concussion, forcing him to miss Carolina's past four games. Lack (25 percent owned in Yahoo leagues) is 3-1-0 with two shutouts since Ward went down, making 32 saves in a 1-0 overtime win against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Jan. 21 and 26 saves in a 5-0 win against the Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday.

NASHVILLE -- The Nashville Predators know they play in a nontraditional hockey market, but they wouldn't have it any other way.

Nashville has had a hockey fandom even if the popularity and a deep understanding of the history of the game wasn't always prevalent.

VANCOUVER -- Defenseman Olli Juolevi called winning a gold medal for Finland at the 2016 IIHF World Junior Championship in his home country the most memorable experience of his hockey career.

"I worked hard this season and I wanted to be great in those World Junior Championships. But there was really good guys on our team and it was fun to play with those guys," Juolevi said. "They helped me and I hope I helped them."

Juolevi is one of six players participating in the game who also played in the 2016 WJC.

Youth hockey tournament key part of All-Star Weekend

Thursday, 01.28.2016 / 10:00 AM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

Zach Jackson, the hockey coordinator at Ford Ice Center in Antioch, Tenn., wanted to figure out a way to involve the growing local youth hockey movement into the celebrations surrounding the 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game this weekend.

"Basically, the All-Star Game is a way to celebrate hockey in general and here in Nashville," Jackson said. "The All-Star Game is for the kids. They love seeing all of their guys in one place showing off their skills, and we wanted to tap into that."

There was no better way than to have a youth hockey tournament at the Ford Ice Center with the Nashville Junior Predators as the host team.

"It's a cool way to bring everybody together here during the weekend so they can enjoy the All-Star Game while giving some high-level teams some pretty good competition," Jackson said. "For us, it is a great opportunity to bring youth hockey teams into Nashville and build on that Smashville name that the city has built for itself."
