Minnesota Wild Notes: Kaprizov, Zuccarello & Rask Stepping Up Strong

Kirill Kaprizov has been one of the best forwards for the Minnesota Wild this season after finally making his NHL debut. Victor Rask has arguably just played his best string of games since he stepped on the ice for the Wild following the one-for-one trade that sent Nino Niederreiter to the Carolina Hurricanes. Mats Zuccarello is playing the level of hockey that former Wild general manager Paul Fenton envisioned when he signed him to a five-year, $30 million contract in free agency two summers ag...

Artemi Panarin Taking A Leave Of Absence

from Mollie Walker of the New York Post, New York Rangers star Artemi Panarin is taking a leave of absence from the team in wake of a politically motivated article from Russia, in which his former Vityaz head coach alleges that the ex-forward of the Moscow Region club beat an 18-year-old girl in Riga, Latvia in 2011, The Post’s Larry Brooks reported Monday morning. Andrei Nazarov, who is currently the head coach of the KHL’s Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk, has repeatedly criticized Panarin f...

Notes On Hockey

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - When I put together my Top 100 NHL players of all-time list in 2016, I had Sidney Crosby at No. 10. That was before he won his third Stanley Cup in Pittsburgh and about 300 or some points ago. The top four all-time are automatic in whatever order you choose: Bobby Orr, Wayne Gretzky, Gordie Howe and Mario Lemieux. There’s no catching them. Five is open now for Rocket Richard, Jean Beliveau, Bobby Hull, Doug Harvey and, yes, Crosby would now fit in ...

Ducks mindful of COVID-19 protocols to maintain season

ANAHEIM — The Ducks understand the havoc caused by COVID-19, whether it’s one positive test that prompts the removal of one player from a game or a larger outbreak that forces the suspension of an entire team’s games and practices for a week, 10 days or longer. As of Thursday, the Ducks were one of only a handful of teams without anyone added to the NHL’s list of players unavailable due to COVID-19 protocol. They would like to keep it that way, too, and they understand it’s best to limit the ris...

Tony DeAngelo Won’t Play Again For The New York Rangers

via Mark Fischer of the New York Post, Tony DeAngelo has played his last game with the Rangers, general manager Jeff Gorton told reporters Monday. DeAngelo, the offensively gifted but hot-headed defenseman, cleared waivers on Monday after being designated following a postgame confrontation with goaltender Alexandar Georgiev after Saturday’s overtime loss to the Penguins. The Rangers assigned DeAngelo to their taxi squad, and are expected to try to trade the 25-year-old.

Goalie Rotation For The New York Rangers Isn’t Working

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, There has to be more than meets the eye — or maybe, in this case, the ear — to David Quinn’s explanation of why the Rangers went with Alex Georgiev in nets on Saturday against the Penguins instead of coming right back to Igor Shesterkin off his strong performance in Thursday’s overtime victory in Buffalo. “Obviously the circumstances have changed here since last year without having Hank [Lundqvist] here,” the coach said. “I just thought for the ...

Losing Streak Continues For The New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Thirteen days into the season, it feels as if the Rangers are already approaching the crossroads of 2020-21. For it is not simply the matter of four straight losses and a 1-4-1 record following Tuesday’s 3-2 defeat at Buffalo in a match where the score flattered the losers, it is that there is no there, there for the Rangers. There is nothing for this team to hang its hat on, no reservoir of confidence from which to draw, no singular athlete...

Goaltending For The New York Rangers Needs To Be Much Better

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, Igor Shesterkin and Alex Georgiev combined to start 18 of the Rangers’ final 19 regular-season games last season, so the tandem certainly should have felt comfortable getting behind the wheel this season following the buyout of Henrik Lundqvist. But if it was one thing for the young Russians to take over around the midway point of 2019-20 while the King was still there as kind of safety net/security blanket if things had gone wrong for Shesterki...

“A Noticeable Difference In The Red Wings This Season”

from Emily Kaplan of ESPN, In August, Larkin said a handful of players returned to Detroit for optional practices, and by September, there were even more. Then came free agency in October, and Yzerman signed five veteran players -- goalie Thomas Greiss, forwards Vladislav Namestnikov and Bobby Ryan, defensemen Jon Merrill and Troy Stecher -- then traded for longtime New York Rangers defenseman Marc Staal. Larkin was on a text chain with his two linemates, Anthony Mantha and Tyler Bert...

Off-Season Moves Paying Off For The Detroit Red Wings

from Josh Berenter of, Eleven Stanley Cup championships. Original Six. The Winged Wheel. Hockeytown. That's the cache that comes with being a member of the Detroit Red Wings, and this season, the Wings welcomed seven new members to the exclusive fraternity as the clubs looks to jumpstart their rebuild.

Kings’ Gabe Vilardi says latest long layoff was highly productive

For most of the Kings, spending 10 months away from the ice felt foreign and novel. But for Gabe Vilardi, a long layoff was old hat following a back condition that disrupted his career over the past three seasons. Vilardi was the 11th overall pick in the 2017 NHL Draft, and he was projected to go even higher by many experts. He was also seen as a potential asset to the powerhouse Canadian junior national program. But his career has been stifled by injuries, primarily a back condition. He was lim...

The Day After A Bad Opening Loss By The New York Rangers

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, But on the heels of a performance in which Quinn, both immediately following the match and then again on Friday, said, “There wasn’t anything good that happened … in any capacity,” the player combinations were less the issue than the team’s intent and preparedness. And for sure, the coaching staff shares responsibility for the team’s total eclipse of the heart.... Other than the Chris Kreider-Mika Zibanejad-Pavel Buchnevich unit, the remaining t...

Not The Start The New York Rangers Wanted

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post, This was a performance that wasn’t worth even a 24-hour wait, let alone the 313 days between appearances at the Garden by the Rangers. But then, this wouldn’t even count as an appearance by the Blueshirts — who pulled a no-show in the season opener, losing 4-0 to an Islanders team that essentially had a 60-minute stroll through the park on Thursday. If you’re looking for an excuse for this debacle — in which Igor Shesterkin allowed goals on ...

Marc Staal Is Part Of The Plan To Stabilize Detroit’s Defense

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press, General manager Steve Yzerman brought in three new faces, trading for Marc Staal and signing free agents Troy Stecher and Jon Merrill. Staal, 33, was an especially savvy addition. He adds the experience of having played 892 games for the New York Rangers; he’s a hulking 6-foot-4, 209 pounds and plays like it. After the initial shock of being booted by the only NHL team he’s known — and a heart-to-heart with Yzerman — Staal has embraced ...

Evening Line- John Davidson

“I personally feel that when you get into the build situation, you need to hang your hat on something at the end of the season as you move forward to become a champion. And if this club in this division makes the playoffs, that will be an accomplishment. That will be a good thing for us. “And just going through the entire battle of getting to the playoffs will be something really advantageous, especially for our young players.” -John Davidson, president of the New York Rangers.  Larr...

Kings ranked 6th, Ducks ranked 23rd in Forbes’ annual values of NHL franchises

The Kings were ranked sixth in Forbes’ annual list of the values of NHL teams at $825 million, and the Ducks were 23rd at $460 million, down 3% and 4% over 2019, respectively, according to figures posted by the magazine on its website Wednesday. Overall, the league’s 31 franchises dropped in value for the first time in two decades because of the coronavirus pandemic.

NHL Team Values Take A Hit

from Mike Ozanian and Kurt Badenhausen of Forbes, Blame the pandemic. It pushed playoffs to neutral sites devoid of fans, robbing “home” teams of critical revenue from selling tickets, beer and hot dogs, which for two previous Cup winners—St. Louis Blues and Washington Capitals—meant more than $20 million. On top of that, the league played only 85% of its regular season games with fans and is looking like it is still on thin ice: The 2020-21 season, which in a normal year would alread...
