Morning Line- -Ed Graney

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Until further notice, it would appear to be Logan Thompson’s net.

And until proven otherwise, the Knights on paper have gone from Stanley Cup contender to not nearly as much of one.

It’s on them to prove otherwise.

One tweet. Two sentences.

How quickly things change, is right.

-Ed Graney of the Las Vegas Review-Journal where you can read more on the goaltending issue for the VGK.

Day 3 Of The WJC

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Derek Van Diest at NHL.com,

All games on NHL Network in U.S., TSN and RDS in Canada

Finland vs. Czechia (2 p.m. ET) -- Czechia gave up a two-goal lead in the third period of its opening game against Slovakia on Tuesday, but a goal by forward Gabriel Szturc (2023 draft eligible) with 1:50 remaining in the third period gave them a 5-4 victory. "The key thing for us is to skate," said Czechia captain Jan Mysak (Montreal Canadiens), who scored two goals. "When we have good movement we create opportunities and we try to shoot as much as we can and then get to the net. You saw a lot of goals we scored were around the net and that's key for us." Finland defeated Latvia 6-1 on Tuesday in its first game. Joakim Kemell (Nashville Predators) had two goals and two assists and Aatu Raty (New York Islanders) had a goal and three assists. "I thought it was a good way to start the tournament," said Finland forward Brad Lambert (Winnipeg Jets), who scored a goal. "I think we trusted that we would get our chances and capitalized on them and we have to continue to do that."

Slovakia vs. Canada (6 p.m. ET) -- Canada found its game after a slow start in a 5-2 win against Latvia on Wednesday.

Players In The Flyers Organization Facing Legal Issues In Russia

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sam Carchidi of Philly Hockey Now,

- The trial of Russian goaltender Ivan Fedotov, a highly regarded Philadelphia Flyers prospect, is scheduled to begin Thursday, according to TASS, the country’s official state news agency.

Fedotov, 25, was favored to win the job as the Flyers’ No. 2 goalie in training camp. He would have pushed Carter Hart for more playing time.

That was before he ran into a roadblock, and was ordered to serve in Russia’s Navy.

The Olympic silver medalist filed a complaint against the government’s attempts to recruit him for military service....

- Mikhail “Misha” Vorobyev, who has been playing in the KHL but whose rights are sill owned by the Flyers, pleaded guilty to bribery charges related to trying to evade Russian military service, per TASS.

A hearing will be held Aug. 22.

Vorobyev, 25, could receive as much as 12 years in prison, the report said. He had two goals in 35 career games with the Flyers, and has played in the KHL the last two seasons.

Rest In Peace Ben

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from NHL.com,

Ben Stelter, the Edmonton Oilers superfan who befriended captain Connor McDavid and encouraged them to "Play La Bamba, baby" after each win in the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs, has died at the age of 6....

Ben was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer, in March 2021 before having surgery, four rounds of chemotherapy and 30 sessions of radiation treatment later that month.

On March 24 of this year, he joined McDavid and the Oilers for their game against the San Jose Sharks as the Scotiabank Skater. Before the game, He lined up alongside McDavid for the national anthems and gave fist bumps. He later attended a postgame press conference with forward Zach Hyman following Edmonton's 5-2 win.

He rejoined the Oilers on April 28 for the morning skate and afterward was presented his own Upper Deck 'Heroic Inspirations' card by McDavid. The card was an officially licensed trading card, with 4,000 printed to be given to the Oilers and the Stelter family.

On Tap for Day 2
All games on NHL Network in U.S., TSN and RDS in Canada

Sweden vs. Switzerland (2 p.m. ET) -- Sweden coach Tomas Monten said the goaltending, led by Jesper Wallstedt (Minnesota Wild), could be the best he's had in his six tournaments. The 19-year-old led the Swedish Hockey League with a 1.98 goals-against average and was fourth with a .918 save percentage in 22 games for Lulea last season. Sweden also has a deep group of forwards that could be led by Jonathan Lekkerimaki (Vancouver Canucks), who helped Sweden win the 2022 IIHF Under-18 World Championship with a tournament-best 15 points (five goals, 10 assists) in six games. Forward Simon Knak (Nashville Predators) and defenseman Brian Zanetti (Philadelphia Flyers) will be relied upon to help Switzerland improve on its ninth-place finish from the 2021 WJC.
