NHL Short Notes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul


Leon Draisaitl, who made history in 2018-19 when he became the first NHL player of German nationality to reach the 100-point mark in a season, moved within five of another triple-digit campaign.

A pair of U.S.-born players skating with teams based in their home state each scored as Hockey Day in America was celebrated on NBC and NBCSN. Overall, players born in the United States accounted for nearly half of all goals on Sunday.

* Will tonight be the night? Alex Ovechkin, who has been held off of the score sheet in each of his last four games, needs just two tallies to reach 700 career regular-season goals.

New Jersey Devils Trade Andy Greene To The New York Islanders

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via NJD press release,

The New Jersey Devils today traded defenseman Andy Greene to the New York Islanders, in exchange for New York's second-round pick in the 2021 NHL Draft and defenseman David Quenneville. New Jersey now has seven picks in the 2021 NHL Draft: the club's own selections in rounds one, three, four, five and six;  in addition to New York's second-round pick and Arizona's third-round selection (conditional).

Quenneville, 21, will report to New Jersey's AHL affiliate in Binghamton.

Greene, 37, was signed as a free agent by New Jersey out of Miami University (Ohio). In 14 seasons with New Jersey, he has appeared in 923 games scoring 49 goals and 197 assists for 246 points while registering 259 penalty minutes. Greene's games-played total ranks seventh in franchise history. He was named the team's eleventh captain on October 8, 2015. Greene is due to be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

"Andy has been a bedrock for the Devils franchise for the past 14 years and an exceptional leader in my time here," said Devils Executive Vice President/Interim General Manager Tom Fitzgerald. "I constantly communicated with Andy throughout this process to make sure he was comfortable with the decision, as it was not one I took lightly. We thank him for all that he's done on and off the ice for the organization, and wish him, his wife, Rachel, and sons, Colton and Maddox all the best."

Quick Recap- Wings/Penguins

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By Paul

Wings lose 5-1 to the Penguins. The team should be embarrassed starting with the GM, coach and players.

 In times of trouble I seek help and again turn to Ted Kulfan tweets.

(Howard was pulled after giving up 4 goals on 16 shots)

Wonder what is going through Jimmy Howard's mind right now. The team in front of him is awful, but he hasn't been able to rise above it even a bit this season. He's going to be 2-22-2 after today

It's going to be 5-1 here after 2 periods...terrible game for #RedWings thus far

Detroit goal and team stats below.

Detroit fans expected a down year, but not this!

Next game is at home against the Canadiens.

Expanding On Saturday Headlines

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,

- Eight teams have turned to a different voice behind the bench this season after the Minnesota Wild replaced Bruce Boudreau with Dean Evason on Friday.

There’s no reason to forecast a quiet off-season, either.

Not only are decisions pending on four interim head coaches — Evason, Rick Bowness (Dallas), Geoff Ward (Calgary) and Alain Nasreddine (New Jersey) — but there’s also the usual performance-related changes to anticipate.

Add in a crop of free-agent replacements that includes Boudreau, Peter Laviolette and Mike Babcock, and, well, here’s guessing there’s much more to come.

- By the end of next season, the NHL will have staged 32 outdoor games — enough for each team to have hosted one.

Of course, there are still plenty of clubs clamouring for their chance, which is what made Saturday’s announcement of a 2020-21 Stadium Series game at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, N.C., stand out.

The Carolina Hurricanes were chosen as hosts for three main reasons: Tom Dundon has been persistent in his pursuit of one since becoming owner; the tremendous reaction to the team locally in the last year-plus, particularly during last spring’s playoff run; and the overriding belief that it’s time to reward different markets coming off the success of the Winter Classic at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

Patrick Kane Voted Top U.S. Born Player In The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Shawn P. Roarke of NHL.com,

To celebrate Hockey Day in America on Sunday and the start of Hockey Week in America, 12 U.S.-based staffers were asked to rank their top 12 forwards, six defenseman and two goalies. Forwards were given 12 points for a first-place vote, 11 for a second-place vote and so on down to 1; defenseman got six points for first place, five for second, down to one; goalies got two points for first place and one point for second.

Kane finished first among forwards with 142 points and 10 of the 12 first-place votes. That was nine more points than Matthews, who received the two remaining first-place votes.

Kane is tied for eighth in the NHL this season with 72 points (26 goals, 46 assists) in 58 games, one season after the 31-year-old finished third in the League with an NHL career-best 110 points (44 goals, 66 assists). Matthews has 71 points in 59 games and is tied for the NHL lead in goals with 42. The 22-year-old has scored 153 goals in his first 271 NHL games.

John Carlson of Washington Capitals, who leads all NHL defensemen with 69 points (15 goals, 54 assists) was a unanimous choice as the best United States-born defenseman, earning 72 voting points and all 12 first-place nominations.
