Evening Line- Henrik Lundqvist

“I mean, I loved Torts, you should say hello [on Friday]. I’ll never forget the first time he walked into the locker room, you’d heard a lot about him and how things went in Tampa and how he was pretty tough on goalies at times, so there was so much respect there.

“You respected him and feared him at the same time. You had to be on your toes. But I loved that. He was so good at motivating the team at critical moments and that’s something I really appreciated, too. I was ready to run through a brick wall every time I walked out from the locker room. He was very good at getting everyone to that mindset, where you were preparing for a kind of war. I loved playing for him.”

-Henrik Lundqvist to Larry Brooks who has an article on Lundqvist's career in New York.

Drew Doughty Will Hit 1000 Games Played Tonight

LOS ANGELES (Jan. 27, 2022) – LA Kings defenseman Drew Doughty will play in his 1,000th regular-season game tonight at UBS Arena against the New York Islanders. He will become the 359th player in NHL history to reach the league-recognized milestone.

A two-time Stanley Cup champion, Doughty will be the 12th player to skate in at least 1,000 games with one franchise and miss fewer than 40 games from his first to his 1,000th. He will be just the fifth player in franchise history to appear in 1,000 NHL games with the team and the 24th player to accomplish the feat in a Kings uniform. He also will be the 58th player to have played for the Kings to reach the milestone.

At The Halfway Point Of The NHL Season

via the NHL PR department,

With 653 games played to date, the 2021-22 regular season will eclipse the halfway mark Wednesday, Jan. 26.

QUICK HITS


* The Art Ross Trophy race is among the closest the NHL has seen in the modern era (since 1943-44), with only two points separating the top four point-getters ahead of the halfway mark.

* The battle for the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy has the five front-runners separated by only six goals, with everyone chasing down leader Chris Kreider who recently reached the 30-goal mark for the first time in his career.

* Entering the second half of the 2021-22 NHL season, 23 players are on pace to score 40 goals and 10 are tracking toward a 100-point campaign.

* As Alex Ovechkin continues his pursuit of third place on the NHL’s all-time goals list, he has put himself within reach of becoming the oldest player in League history to lead all players in goals and points at the end of a season.
