Suter keep going?
It's almost stranger to see Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter off the ice as it is to find him on it. He's munching minutes like Joey Chestnut eats hot dogs on July 4.
Suter leads the League with an average ice time of 29:32 per game. If Suter maintains his current ice time average, it would be the most for any player in a single season since Chris Pronger averaged 30:14 per...

Corsi value for teams from 1997-98 to 2006-07, before any of the advanced statistic websites began to track it. The Blues, with Chris Pronger in his prime, were really good at possessing the puck.

A couple of ugly losses, but also a convincing victory against the San Jose Sharks and a big addition in a busy week for Chicago. Kris Versteeg at $4.4 million per...

by the Flyers with the 19th pick of the 2008 NHL Draft, he played 43 games with the Flyers in 2008-09 before being returned to his junior team, and he was a big part of the return the Ducks got when they traded Chris Pronger to Philadelphia.
But after going without a point in eight games and averaging 12:37 of ice time per game, he was sent to Lethbridge to continue his development.

to devour ice time is remarkable. He's averaging -- yes, averaging -- 29:36 of ice time per contest. There have been 40 instances of a player logging at least 29:36 in one game this season; Suter is averaging that much every night. If Suter maintains that pace over the course of an 82-game season, it would be the most anyone has averaged since Chris Pronger played 30:14 per game for the St. Louis Blues...

as a kid.
"That was my first hockey experience that I can relate to," he said.
He said he vividly recalls the game he played here with the Ducks because it was the night Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger knocked out two of his teeth.
"So that was a fun night," Ryan said, joking. "Then I had to go see him and say hello to him after the game, and that was even harder."
This will be Ryan's only trip...

that stretch, Suter played 108:19, the most ever in a three-game stretch since the Elias Sports Bureau began tracking the stat in 2000.
If Suter were to get to the 30-minute mark, he would be the first player to officially accomplish the feat. Chris Pronger averaged 30:14 while playing for the St. Louis Blues in 1999-2000 before time on ice was an official stat.

) and partly because Niedermayer's talents probably were not properly appreciated.
He didn't have a booming shot or the offensive numbers of players in more goal-friendly systems, and he didn't dish out the highlight-reel hits like Scott Stevens or Chris Pronger. He was like Lidstrom, an all-round marvel who didn't make mistakes.
The way defensemen play (or are allowed to play) has changed in the NHL...

to 2006 when he defended then-Anaheim Ducks teammate Chris Pronger for requesting to be traded from the Oilers. Bryzgalov likened it to the "North Pole."
"He may be tried to leave here because here in November months is a minus-32," Bryzgalov said in an interview with The Score. "Could you imagine? It's eight months in a year of snow."

Smid had one goal and two points in 17 games with Edmonton this season. He joined the Oilers in 2006 and had 11 goals and 65 points in 474 games. The 27-year-old native of the Czech Republic was taken by the Anaheim Ducks in the first round (No. 9) of the 2004 NHL Draft; the Oilers acquired him as part of the July 2006 trade that sent Chris...

to the Stanley Cup Playoffs seven times in his first eight seasons, but only twice did his teams advance past the first round.
"The teams that were interested were Original Six teams, teams that sort of fit where I thought I was at that point in my career," Shanahan said.
He wound up going to the Hartford Whalers, traded for Chris Pronger on July 27, 1995. It was two years before they became the Carolina...
