Carter and the kids: Inside Kings dynamic line


Thursday, 10.30.2014 / NHL.com

At 29 years old and with fewer than 650 games played in the NHL, Jeff Carter isn't the ideal for a veteran mentor.


But for young linemates Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson, Carter has served as a role model and a motivator as the three forwards have formed the most offensively explosive line in the first month of the NHL season for the Los Angeles Kings.


Entering their game Thursday against the Pittsburgh Penguins (7 p.m. ET, NHLN-US, SN360, TVA SPORTS2), Pearson (seven goals), Carter (five) and Toffoli (five) have combined for 17 of the Kings' 23 goals this season.

Wednesday, 10.29.2014 / NHL.com

The Calgary Flames announced today that they have recalled forward Markus Granlund from the Adirondack Flames of the American Hockey League.

Chicago Blackhawks

Blackhawks' Hossa on brink of 1,000-point milestone


Wednesday, 10.29.2014 / NHL.com

CHICAGO -- He'll turn 36 in January, but Marian Hossa still puts fear into opponents whenever he enters a game for the Chicago Blackhawks.


"He scares you every time he gets on the ice," said Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau this week before his team managed to keep Hossa and the Blackhawks at bay in a 1-0 Ducks victory at United Center. "He's got a tremendous release of his shot. He's really fast, deceptively fast and strong, and he really plays the [right wing] position well."


Hossa is creeping up on 1,000 points in his 17th NHL season (465 goals and 533 assists in 1,099 games) but Boudreau wasn't just paying him lip service. He still views Hossa as a dominant two-way presence and he's not alone.

Bruins' Krug to miss 2-3 weeks with broken finger


Wednesday, 10.29.2014 / NHL.com

Boston Bruins defenseman Torey Krug will miss 2-3 weeks with a broken finger, the team announced Wednesday.


Krug, who sustained the injury in a 4-3 loss to the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday, has two goals, six points and a plus-2 rating in 11 games this season.


"I think it was a slash there on his last shift," coach Claude Julien said. "He got slashed on the finger and I was just told when we pulled our goalie that Torey was gone, and that's when I found out."


The Bruins, who are already without defenseman Zdeno Chara for 4-6 weeks with a knee injury, recalled defensemen Joe Morrow and David Warsofsky from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Providence Bruins.




Detroit Red Wings

Gordie Howe's family releases statement on his status


Wednesday, 10.29.2014 / NHL.com

DETROIT – Red Wings legend Gordie Howe remained in guarded condition Wednesday afternoon after he suffered a major stroke sometime Sunday morning while living with his daughter in northwestern Texas.


Howe, the all-time franchise leader in goals, points and games played, and the greatest player of his generation, is facing the toughest battle of his life.


Howe, 86, led the Red Wings to four Stanley Cup championships while winning six league scoring titles and taking home the Hart Trophy six times as the league's MVP.




Tallon thinks Ekblad has goods to stick with Panthers


Wednesday, 10.29.2014 / NHL.com

It appears Florida Panthers rookie defenseman Aaron Ekblad, the first pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, has done more than enough to prove he belongs in the NHL.


"Unless he really collapses, I don't see him going anywhere," Panthers general manager Dale Tallon told NHL.com. "I've been very impressed with his composure and maturity. Once the regular season started, he was a different guy; it was like game on and almost as if he's been around for a long time."


Tallon has until the 10th game to determine if Ekblad has what it takes to remain with the team over an 82-game schedule. He could be returned to the Barrie Colts in the Ontario Hockey League without his three-year entry-level contract kicking in at any point before his 10th game, which will likely occur Nov. 4 at TD Garden in Boston.


"He's improving and playing well, playing lots of minutes, and has some good mentors here in Willie Mitchell and Brian Campbell," Tallon said.

Fantasy Top 60 'D': Devils' Severson serves up points


Wednesday, 10.29.2014 / NHL.com

Every Wednesday during the season, NHL.com fantasy hockey correspondent Brian Metzer will provide you with in-depth defensemen analysis. From updated weekly top 60 rankings to trending players and more, Metzer will be your go-to guy for fantasy blue line advice all season long.


Each new season brings with it a few standout rookies capable of significant fantasy contributions; sadly they don't often emerge on the blue line. In fact, over the past four seasons no first-year defenseman has finished higher than fourth in the rookie scoring race.


That could be changing this season with Damon Severson of the New Jersey Devils.


Severson wasn't able to add to his totals on Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, but he has played at a level that is far beyond his 20 years. Devils coach Peter DeBoer and teammates such as Jaromir Jagr have been blown away by Severson's poise and have spoken in glowing terms about his maturity, pucks skills and willingness to take chances to finish a play.
