Video- Brad Marchand Being Brad Marchand

from Eric Francis of Sportsnet, The gesture? Predictable. The timing? Ridiculous. If you think David Rittich’s stick flip provided unnecessary ammunition for the Edmonton Oilers last month, consider what Brad Marchand did to fire up the Flames Tuesday night. Midway through a tight contest that saw the Flames leading 1-0, Marchand converted a shorthanded breakaway to send the crowd at TD Garden into a frenzy. Instead of proceeding to the Bruins’ bench, the Bruins veteran im...

Rebuilding Kings face another challenge with Penguins next up

LOS ANGELES — Fresh off a weekend packed with star power, the Kings will go from welcoming two of the biggest names of the last half-decade to hosting the two winningest stars from the past decade and a half at Staples Center on Wednesday. They fell to Nathan MacKinnon’s Colorado Avalanche on Saturday and dropped another game against the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday in Connor McDavid’s return from injury, in which McDavid scored three points. Wednesday, they’ll face the Pittsburgh Penguins, and tha...

Ducks’ Troy Terry sent to San Diego Gulls to lead chase for AHL playoff berth

ANAHEIM — Right wing Troy Terry had one goal and six assists in his past 14 games, showing more confidence and more aggression with the puck on his stick since he was recalled from the San Diego Gulls of the AHL last month. It was not sufficient to keep him on the Ducks’ roster, though. The Ducks reassigned him to the Gulls with some direct marching orders: make an impact. It could be viewed as a demotion for Terry, who had four goals and 11 assists in 47 games overall this season with the Ducks...

2020 NHL Trade Deadline: Fisher’s Winners & Losers

By my count, there were 30 deals on deadline day involving 55 players and 25 draft picks. That included 36 legitimate NHLers, plus 19 minor-leaguers or prospects on the move on Feb. 24. Dating back to Feb. 5 — when Toronto acquired Jack Campbell and Kyle Clifford from Los Angeles — there were exactly 50 trades leading up to the 2020 deadline. It sure felt like a busy month, with business picking up as per usual but even more so than anticipated. Ironically, I posted a poll on Twitter sett...

Renaming the NHL Awards: What They Could Look Like

In a recent episode of “ The Ray & Dregs podcast“ hosted by TSN’s Ray Ferraro and Darren Dreger, they discussed the idea of the NHL changing the names of their individual awards. Ferraro suggested putting all of the current trophies in the Hockey Hall of Fame so that they can take their place in hockey history and be on display forever, and the existing awards would then be renamed after players that today’s fans are a little more familiar with. So with Ferraro’s comments in mind, I thought ...

Blackhawks: Upcoming Free Agents in 2020

After an eventful trade deadline day that included the departures of goaltender Robin Lehner and defenseman Erik Gustafsson, the Chicago Blackhawks are still left with several pending free agents. With today’s salary cap, it’s impossible to keep all of these players on the roster, so it’s important to examine which ones will be worth keeping as well as how much their new contracts will cost. Dominik Kubalik With 26 goals and 13 assists in 60 games, it’s safe to say that Dominik Kubalik i...

Markstrom’s Injury Spells Trouble for Canucks

After the 12:00 P.M. PST trade deadline passed on Monday afternoon, it seemed as if the Vancouver Canucks weren’t going to make a move. It wasn’t until 20 minutes after the deadline when TSN’s Bob Mckenzie tweeted out the Canucks had traded for goalie Louis Domingue. Goalie Zane McIntyre going from VAN to NJ for Louis Domingue.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) February 24, 2020 The trade was an unexpected one, as the Canucks weren’t in the market for a goalie due to Jacob Markstrom...

Maple Leafs News & Rumors: Trades, Rosen, Timashov, Rielly & Muzzin

General manager Kyle Dubas took some heat on Monday for doing little at the trade deadline to overhaul the Toronto Maple Leafs’ lineup. However, when Dubas spoke on the Tim & Sid Show today when the trade deadline was over, he said the team had made deals earlier in the month to get Jack Campbell and Kyle Clifford from the Los Angeles Kings and Denis Malgin from the Florida Panthers.

Oilers among winners, Panthers losers at NHL trade deadline

Mired in a run of one playoff appearance in 13 seasons, the Edmonton Oilers could really use some hockey deep into April and perhaps May and June. General manager Ken Holland took a few small steps toward making that happen at the NHL trade deadline by picking up defenseman Mike Green and forwards Andreas Athanasiou and Tyler Ennis. Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl are one of the league's top dynamic duos, and now they have some extra help.

The Edmonton Oilers were among the busier of teams at this year’s NHL Trade Deadline. On Sunday night they added veteran defenseman Mike Green in a bit of a shocking move, but on Monday, made two more deals for players they were rumored to be in on.

Oilers acquire Andreas Athanasiou from Red Wings for Sam Gagner, two picks

The Edmonton Oilers forward group just got an injection of speed. With just hours remaining before the trade deadline, the Oilers swept in and acquired Andreas Athanasiou and Ryan Kuffner from the Detroit Red Wings for Sam Gagner, a 2020 second-round pick and a 2021 second-round pick. Athanasiou has notorious speed on the ice and will presumingly get prime time to play on the wing of an even faster skater in Connor McDavid.

Trades: Oilers get Athanasiou from Red Wings; Ennis from Senators

When Connor McDavid returned to the Edmonton Oilers' lineup on Sunday night and opened the game between Sam Gagner and Alex Chiasson it was painfully obvious they needed to get another winger. They ended up getting two on Monday when they acquired Andreas Athanasiou (and Ryan Kuffner) from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for Gagner and two second-round draft picks. Oilers general manager Ken Holland drafted Athanasiou during his time in Detroit, so there is that obvious connection here.

Anaheim Ducks’ 5 Worst Trades in Franchise History

The only hockey tournament in the world that can come close to rivaling the excitement of the Stanley Cup playoffs is the Winter Olympics.

While there are still several important issues to work out, there appears to be some hope for a new deal between the NHL and International Olympic Committee (IOC) that would allow the best players in the world ...
