Sharks all-star Burns to soak up Nashville experience

Wednesday, 01.27.2016 / 3:00 AM / 2016 NHL All-Star Weekend

Eric Gilmore - Correspondent

The 2016 Honda NHL All-Star Game in Nashville on Jan. 31 is less than a week away. In the lead-up to All-Star Weekend at Bridgestone Arena, sat down with a host of this season's participants to talk about playing in the game. In this edition, defenseman Brent Burns discusses representing the San Jose Sharks in the All-Star Game.

1. What does being an All-Star mean to you personally?

It's a huge honor. I've said it before, to represent your team and the League at an event like this, it's always great.

2. What is your favorite memory from previous All-Star Games?

For me, I think it's the special moment I've had with my kids on the ice, both of them. In Carolina with my daughter, last year in Columbus, my daughter and my son. I think these events are really just great things for the family, to get the cool picture out there with my kids. My kids are getting to the age where they know it's a pretty cool event. It's just great. To have my dad and my father-in-law there. It's just really fun.

The NHL truly went global in the 1990s.

The end of the Cold War opened up a new well of talent for the League, with players most notably from Russia and the former Czechoslovakia suddenly free to come to North America and test their skills against the best in the world.

The decade began with the Pittsburgh Penguins welcoming Jaromir Jagr, an 18-year-old Czech, in 1990-91. He would go on to become the top scorer of the 1990s and one of the greatest players of all time.

In that same season, Sergei Fedorov began his career with the Detroit Red Wings and Dominik Hasek became the backup goaltender for the Chicago Blackhawks, part of a wave of Eastern Bloc players who joined those who defected in prior years, setting off a period of drastic demographic change in the NHL.

Melnyk: Downtown arena key to Senators' success

Tuesday, 01.26.2016 / 8:34 PM / News

Chris Stevenson - Correspondent

OTTAWA -- A new downtown arena is the key to the Ottawa Senators being competitive and challenging for a Stanley Cup, owner Eugene Melnyk said Tuesday.

Melnyk is leading one of two groups bidding for the right to build an NHL-caliber rink, retail and residential projects on LeBreton Flats, 53 acres of prime undeveloped land just west of Parliament Hill in downtown Ottawa. The details of the two proposals were revealed Tuesday as the National Capital Commission, the federal government agency which oversees the land, started a public consultation process to select the winning bid.

Melnyk is leading the RendezVous LeBreton Group, which is proposing a concept called IlluminNation LeBreton that has an 18,000-seat arena as its main feature. There would also be an adjacent open square that could accommodate 28,000 people, a two-rink practice facility and a 250,000-square foot multi-purpose recreational facility. The proposal would also include retail space (2.8 million square feet) and five neighborhoods with 4,400 residential units.

Blue Jackets' Atkinson to buy dog for birthday girl

Tuesday, 01.26.2016 / 7:38 PM / News

Sean Farrell - Correspondent

MONTREAL -- Columbus Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson scored three goals Monday, and in doing so made one big save.

Before Columbus' 5-2 win against the Montreal Canadiens, Blue Jackets fan Maddie Wright held up a sign that read, "Dad said if '13' scores on my birthday we get a dog." Atkinson, who wears No. 13, delivered on Wright's wish for her ninth birthday, getting the third hat trick of his NHL career.

On Tuesday, Atkinson doubled down, saying he is going to buy Wright the dog, which will be a rescue.

"Hopefully, she still names it after me, but, yeah, I'm looking forward to meeting her and her family when, obviously, probably, I get back from the (All-Star) break," Atkinson said. "But it's a great thing, and I think they said that they're going to buy a rescue dog, which is even better, so it's all good."

Craig Adams, two-time Stanley Cup champion, retires

Tuesday, 01.26.2016 / 3:36 PM / News

Veteran NHL forward Craig Adams, a two-time Stanley Cup champion, announced his retirement Tuesday.

"I consider myself very lucky to have been able to live out my dream of playing in the NHL," Adams, 38, said through the NHL Players' Association. "… The opportunity to compete with and against the best players in the world every day was an honor that I never took for granted. I am grateful for my teammates and the friendships I have made over the years. Thanks for the good times, the laughs and the memories. I would also like to express my gratitude to the fans across the NHL. Without the fans the winning, and losing, would not mean nearly as much."

Adams played over 1,000 games in the NHL between regular season and Stanley Cup Playoffs. He won the Stanley Cup in 2006 with the Carolina Hurricanes and again in 2009 with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He also played for the Chicago Blackhawks.
