Ducks place Patrick Eaves on waivers in effort to increase roster flexibility

ST. PAUL, Minn. — The Ducks placed oft-injured right wing Patrick Eaves on waivers on Tuesday, a move that could give them increased roster flexibility for the remainder of the season if none of the NHL’s other 30 team claims him by a 9 a.m. deadline on Wednesday. Eaves could be reassigned to the San Diego Gulls of the AHL if he clears waivers, giving him a chance to work his way back into game shape. He has played only seven games with the Ducks this season and five with the Gulls because of in...

Canucks’ Reid Boucher: Untapped Potential

Currently sitting sixth in AHL scoring is the Utica Comets’ Reid Boucher who is boasting 49 points in 42 games in 2018-19 — the Vancouver Canucks are missing their window of opportunity to extract Boucher’s potential. On top of his 1.17 points-per-game, Boucher is also fourth the AHL in goals (24) despite playing three games less than the leader, who has 27, and is in contention for the Willie Marshall Award, presented to the player who scores the most regular-season goals. He’s already crushed ...

Sabres Need More Than a Fired up Bogosian

Two days after Buffalo Sabres head coach Phil Housley called his team soft, following a 6-2 drubbing at the hands of the New York Rangers, they had a chance to respond on the ice. Many expected – if not hoped – for them to play a passionate, physical game filled with desperation and urgency to start their three-day road trip with a much-need victory against the New Jersey Devils in Prudential Center. It didn’t happen. Buffalo Sabres head coach Phil Housley was looking for his team to respond. (...

Senators’ Duchene: Top 4 Trade Destinations

It looks like Ottawa Senators’ Matt Duchene will be on the move again for the second season in a row. Nine days ahead of the 2019 NHL Trade Deadline, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reported that the Senators have made their number one centreman available for trade, if the price is right.

Flames Face Trade Deadline Balancing Act

After a whirlwind first two-thirds of the 2018-19 season, the Calgary Flames are in an unfamiliar place as they approach the trade deadline: contention.

The Grind Line: Red Wings Rebuild Mid-Term Report Card

What’s The Grind Line? Apart from the once-famous line of Kris Draper, Kirk Maltby, and either Joe Kocur or Darren McCarty, The Grind Line is also The Hockey Writers’ weekly column about the Detroit Red Wings. Rachel Anderson and Tony Wolak are the muckers who makeup THW’s forechecking unit and sound off on Red Wings topics. The Detroit Red Wings rebuild is a hot topic among the Wing-nut community.

Puljujarvi Fills a Devils’ Need, but Is He Worth It?

It’s obvious the New Jersey Devils still have some rebuilding to do. They began that process when they traded Brian Boyle to the Nashville Predators for a second-round pick. It’s likely he won’t be the only one moved, as Marcus Johansson and Ben Lovejoy are both on expiring contracts. Even though the Devils will be sellers, they can still look to acquire talent. One name in the rumor mill is Jesse Puljujarvi’s, who’s struggled with the Edmonton Oilers. His time in Edmonton could be coming to an ...

4 Reasons Oilers Made Good Gamble on Gagner

On Saturday, Sam Gagner got word while in Providence, Rhode Island that he’d be leaving the Toronto Marlies road trip and headed back to the city it began for him in the NHL. He was traded to the Edmonton Oilers and they wanted him to make it to the arena fast enough to join the Oilers for their final game of a three-game road swing, this particular contest against the New York Islanders. The matchup resulted in another loss for the Oilers, and despite playoff hopes looking bleak, there’s ...

Travis Dermott: Maple Leafs’ Star in the Making

The Toronto Maple Leafs’ defenseman Travis Dermott is going to be an NHL star. That, in English grammar terminology, is a declarative sentence. And, I am declaring it up front. The Maple Leafs drafted Dermott in the second round, 34th overall, in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft. Although some might wonder what impact players remain that low in the draft, when you’re talking defensemen, the answer might be many. Finding an elite defenseman in the draft takes both luck and skill. For example, new team me...

Tape2Tape: Is Rittich Worthy of MVP Consideration?

It wouldn’t be fair to say that David Rittich came out of nowhere for the Calgary Flames – after all this is the third season in which he’s appeared in an NHL game. That said, this is the first season in which he’s become a household name for fans of the league. While you still wouldn’t put him amongst the game’s elite at the position, he has made a name for himself in helping the Flames to the top of the Pacific Division. Having played in 34 of the team’s 58 games this season, Rittich has...

Revisiting the Penguins 2018 Draft

The Pittsburgh Penguins’ 2018 NHL Draft was like many others that the team has experienced over the past several years. The team traded away its first-round pick at the 2018 Trade Deadline in an attempt to make a deep playoff push. While they were quiet on the first day of the draft, the Penguins found value in the second round and beyond. So far, just six players from this draft have made their NHL debuts, including top pick and Calder Trophy candidate Rasmus Dahlin. None of Pittsburgh’s crop o...

Kings call up defenseman Matt Roy, who looks to score

LOS ANGELES – Matt Roy on Friday night had just finished playing a game for the Ontario Reign. Then the 23-year-old defenseman got the word he was being called up by the Kings, and he was slated to make his NHL debut Saturday night when the Kings hosted the BostonBruins. As he stood at his locker following the morning skate Saturday, Roy fielded questions. Every answer came with a smile. “I was excited,” he said. “I found out last night after our game for Ontario and I was just very excited. I c...

Will they be buyers or sellers at the Feb. 25 trade deadline? So many questions! It’s hard to look at the big picture, but it’s a little easier to delve into more day-to-day questions.

Red Wings Wisely Choose Daley Over Cholowski

Edmonton Oilers: What Just Happened? What’s Next?

For a team that supposedly doesn’t have a designated “general manager” it has been a busy couple of days for the Edmonton Oilers. So too, whoever is pulling the strings for this organization should expect his days to get a whole lot busier. As the Oilers head into a matchup with the New York Islanders on Saturday, they’ll be doing so with a few changes to the roster. Out are Cam Talbot and Ryan Spooner. In are Anthony Stolarz and former Oilers center Sam Gagner. In one case, the change feels tro...

Wings Recall Filip Hronek

DETROIT – The Detroit Red Wings today recalled defenseman Filip Hronek from the American Hockey League’s Grand Rapids Griffins. Hronek has totaled 23 games with the Red Wings this season after making his NHL debut on Oct. 4 vs. Columbus and has notched 10 points (3-7-10) in 18:25 average time on ice.

Jets Pick Niku Over Poolman… What a Bad Move

With the news that Joe Morrow will be out two to three weeks with a lower-body injury he suffered during a third-period scrap with the Colorado Avalanche’s Matt Calvert on Thursday, the Winnipeg Jets called up Sami Niku prior to their upcoming three-game road trip. That was the wrong choice. They should have looked no further than Tucker Poolman. Poolman’s Play Steady and Heady The 25-year-old Poolman has playing heady hockey for the Manitoba Moose. In fact, he’s flat-out been their best defen...

Oilers Treatment of Puljujarvi Is Almost Criminal

Another loss for the Edmonton Oilers. Another game where Jesse Puljujarvi was underused and confused. Finishing the game with only 14 shifts over 9:31 seconds of ice time, Puljujvari was ineffective — as he has been on many nights in an Oilers uniform. But, it’s hard to tell if his lack of success is on him or the organization. Playing under a coach who specifically brought him up from the AHL to guide him as an NHL prospect, Oilers’ bench boss Ken Hitchcock now has Puljujarvi regularly riding h...

Kings forward Michael Amadio credits trip to minors

EL SEGUNDO — Michael Amadio has been up and down this season, splitting time between the Kings and their AHL affiliate in Ontario. That’s partly why he hadn’t scored an NHL goal since Dec. 23, until he found the net Thursday during the second period of a 4-3 shootout loss to Vancouver at Staples Center. Amadio, who was recalled Jan. 31 after spending a month at Ontario, was more pumped than usual as he celebrated in demonstrative fashion. Amadio, just 22, is in his second season with the Kings (...
