Ducks’ Rickard Rakell embracing additional role on penalty-killing unit

LOS ANGELES — The Ducks’ season went haywire for a million different reasons back in December, January and February, when they couldn’t seem to score, couldn’t prevent the opposition from scoring and couldn’t win. Injuries played a role. Lackluster performances from key players were to blame, as well. Since then, since a coaching change Feb. 10, Bob Murray has been eager to make alterations, some more dramatic than others. The Ducks’ general manager and interim coach has mixed and matched player...

Ducks and Ryan Kesler set to discuss his hockey future

ANAHEIM — Bob Murray, the Ducks’ general manager and interim coach, said Friday he planned to meet later in the day with Ryan Kesler and the team’s medical personnel to discuss the 34-year-old center’s ailing hip and his future in hockey. Murray expected it to be a difficult but necessary conversation. Kesler hasn’t played since the Ducks’ loss March 6 to the St. Louis Blues, sitting out for the eighth consecutive game Friday against the San Jose Sharks at Honda Center. With two weeks remaining ...

Ducks defenseman Korbinian Holzer making most of consistent ice time

ANAHEIM — Korbinian Holzer has played 150 games over seven seasons in the NHL, including 92 in four seasons with the Ducks. He’s been in their lineup and out of their lineup too many times to count over the years. He’s been sent down to San Diego of the AHL and then recalled from the Gulls. “For me, it’s always been kind of like a roller coaster,” said Holzer, a 31-year-old defenseman. Things have changed recently for Holzer, though. The work has been steady. Finally. In addition to playing his ...

Predators’ History with College Free Agents

It’s the time of the year when the college hockey season is coming an end and that means several things when it comes to NHL teams. For collegiate players who have been drafted, it means they have the opportunity to sign with the team that drafted them, potentially joining that team for the remainder of the regular season. However, for college players who either haven’t been drafted or have been drafted but never signed and just completed their senior season, they become unrestricted free agents...

Predators Need More Goals from Simmonds

Fresh off Wayne Simmonds’ first goal with the Nashville Predators, he must feel like a huge weight has been lifted off his shoulders. Truth be told, it’s just a slight reprieve. Simmonds No Longer Scoring With just two points in nine games since his trade-deadline acquisition, Simmonds simply isn’t doing what has been second nature to him his whole career: score. Up until this season, he had been the epitome of consistency, effectively good for at least a prorated 50 points over an 82-ga...

St. Louis Blues: Evaluating Craig Berube

When the St. Louis Blues decided to fire former head coach Mike Yeo and replace him with his assistant, Craig Berube, it seemed like the season was already lost, and it was only Nov. 20. Now, four months later, the Blues are solidly in a playoff spot, and the new coach is understandably getting a lot of the credit. Most recently, he earned a place atop NBC Sports’ NHL head coach power ranking. The national media is singing Berube’s praises, but has he fully earned it? Let’s take a look at th...

Ducks GM Bob Murray preaches stability, but is willing to experiment too

ANAHEIM — Devin Shore on the Ducks’ power play? Shore centering a line? Nick Ritchie skating on a line with Ryan Getzlaf? Ritchie on the power play? Rickard Rakell on a penalty-killing unit? Rakell skating with Shore? The Ducks have stressed a need for stability since making a coaching change Feb. 10. Bob Murray, their general manager and interim coach since firing Randy Carlyle, has been willing to experiment. He has moved pieces around the chessboard and found answers to a few questions.

Coyotes Weekly: Still in the Playoff Hunt

With less than three weeks to go, and with the Arizona Coyotes still firmly entrenched in a tight race for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference, there’s no doubt that, over the next few weeks, every game (and point) matters. There are only nine games remaining, and only 18 more points can be gathered, giving the Coyotes a 96-point maximum for this season. Six wins in those nine games will give Arizona 90 points – would that be enough to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs? Can they ...

Where is Brandon Pirri?

Four, three, two, one. Those numbers speak to the career of one, Brandon Pirri, the journeyman winger who is currently a member of the Vegas Golden Knights. His path to the Golden Knights has been an interesting one, to say the least. At just 27 years old, Pirri has already been a part of five different organizations, playing meaningful NHL games for each team. Now with the Golden Knights, Pirri is experiencing an unfortunately familiar fate, stuck as the odd-man out, the dreaded healthy scratch...

These are the 1st-round NHL playoff matchups we want to see

The thing about the Stanley Cup playoffs is the first round usually produces the most compelling hockey.Maybe it's because that after a long six-month-plus, drawn-out regular season the players, coaches and fanatics can't wait for the level of hockey to increase a few more degrees.Or maybe it's because the first round has been a home to upsets. The Chicago Blackhawks were the West regular-season champs in 2016-17 and got bounced in a sweep by the eighth-seeded Nashville Predators....

Ducks primed for Jets rematch after beatdown last month

ANAHEIM — The last time the Ducks faced the Winnipeg Jets, they were coming off a nine-day hiatus for the All-Star break and their bye week. The Ducks were a mess, plain and simple. They were no match for the faster, smarter and more creatives Jets, who thumped them 9-3. The Ducks gave up six goals in a period for the first time in their 25-year history. Somebody by the name of Jack Roslovic scored three times for the Jets, who clicked three times on the power play and fired six pucks past John ...

Canadiens Have Good Addition With Weal

The Montreal Canadiens and general manager Marc Bergevin had a quiet trade 2019 deadline day. The team decided to make only depth moves and avoided big names on the market or rental players. Christian Folin, Dale Weise and Nate Thompson were among the new faces who joined the team. The Habs made only one trade during trade deadline day on Feb. 25 — the acquisition of center Jordan Weal for Michael Chaput. The move was intriguing because the Canadiens already had depth and Weal seemed like just a...

Revisiting David Poile’s Drafts – 1998

The Nashville Predators have been an NHL franchise since the 1998-99 season after the city was granted an expansion team in June 1997. In their 20 seasons of existence, there has been one constant: general manager David Poile, who’s served that role since the franchise’s inception. Therefore, he’s been the architect of every team that’s suited up, from the inaugural roster through the 2018-19 rendition. That means he’s been the decision-maker in a lot of drafts and has made a lot of picks, 178 t...
