Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Columbus Dispatch,

The Blue Jackets, left for dead a month ago, are gaining a pulse. It’s showing up on their latest medical charts. Here are some numbers: The Blue Jackets are 2-2-1 in their past five games, all on the road. This is a team that didn’t win more than nine road games in any of its first four seasons. "You need your goaltender to be a star on the road if you’re going to do anything," coach Gerard Gallant said. "We’ve gotten some pretty good performances of late."

Center Pierre Turgeon will miss approximately three to four weeks with a strained shoulder. Turgeon suffered the injury during the first period of Saturday’s game versus the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Sykora Comfortable With Rangers

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the NY Times,

He was asked about his dwindling goal total this season and whether he felt he still had more to offer at a relatively young age. "I did not think I would get this question at age 29," said Sykora, who had scored only 7 goals in 39 games for Anaheim before the Mighty Ducks traded him and a fourth-round pick in 2007 to the Rangers on Sunday for the 22-year-old defenseman Maxim Kondratiev. "I thought I'd get this question at age 35. I've got lots left. Come on. I am young for this league. Yes, I have seven goals, but I'm going to score."

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Detroit Free Press,

For those who think the Red Wings could use a shot in the arm: Help is coming. Niklas Kronwall, a top-four defenseman, is close to returning — in fact, he plans to be playing before the Olympic break begins Feb. 13, which should enable him to join Team Sweden at the Turin Winter Games. “Oh, I’ll be playing before then for sure,” Kronwall said Monday. “I have no doubts about that. I hope by the end of the month, or the first week of February, I’ll be playing again.”

Available- One Minor League Franchise, Wants An NHL Team

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Business Courier,

The owners of the American Hockey League franchise formerly known as the Mighty Ducks lost their team last year when a game of musical chairs involving National Hockey League affiliates in the AHL left Cincinnati out of the mix. But the owners kept possession of the franchise, even though it's been idle this season. Now, RailRaiders CEO Pete Robinson and his staff are racing to sell 2,000 deposits for 2006-2007 season tickets in an effort to show the league and prospective NHL affiliates that Greater Cincinnati is still a strong hockey market.

Ilya Kovalchuk isn't losing sleep over criticism from Don Cherry. "I don't care what he says," the Atlanta Thrashers winger said Monday on an NHL conference call. "It's a free country and you can say whatever you want." "Hockey is an emotional game. That's all it is," said Kovalchuk. "There was nothing personal. He's a good hockey player. It's nothing. It's just the excitement (of the moment), the emotions."
