P.K. Subban Returns Tonight

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Nashville Predators,

The Nashville Predators activated defenseman P.K. Subban from Injured Reserve on Friday and expect him to play tonight in Edmonton.

The 27-year-old blueliner has missed the previous 16 games with an upper-body injury. Subban had 17 points (7g-10a) in the Predators' opening 29 games before exiting with what he described as "a new injury."

Adding Subban back into the mix will be welcome addition for the Preds, who are also missing another franchise defenseman in Roman Josi (Injured Reserve; upper-body).

Clarke MacArthur Will Not Play This Season And Craig Anderson’s Timetable To Return

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Craig Medaglia of OttawaSenators.com,

Senators GM Pierre Dorion met with the media this morning to provide some injury updates and announced that Clarke MacArthur will not play this season.

MacArthur has been battling post-concussion symptoms for the better part of two years now and all indications up until today was that he was nearing a return to action this season. MacArtur was sidelined back in training camp during team scrimmage but was able to return to full contact practices in December.

"Clarke is devastated by this news," Dorion relayed to the media this morning. "He felt he didn't have any symptoms but I think in the long-term of this process we always said that the doctors would decide if Clarke was going to play."...

With MacArthur not an option to return this season Dorion has shifted his focus and is looking to acquire some forward depth at some point during the second half of the season. The Sens currently find themselves in second place in the Atlantic Division as they push for a return to the post-season.

"Right now the asking prices are ridiculous for rentals and for non-rentals," Dorion continued....

Some good news from this morning's media availability, it looks like Craig Anderson could return to the team later this month or in early February. Anderson took a personal leave back in December in order to be with his family while his wife Nicholle underwent cancer treatment. Dorion also expects that when Anderson's return to the team happens, it would be a permanent one.

Video- Hats, Caps And Connor McDavid

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN YouTube page,

Connor McDavid wears many hats as the captain of the Edmonton Oilers, (face of the franchise, engine of the offence, superstar in the NHL), so Cabbie presents him with a variety of hats, including an iconic Jofa helmet. Don't sleep on the military grade night vision goggles either. They also discuss McDavid's lightning hot production and one of their favourite MCs who lit up the stage at Rogers Place wearing Connor's jersey.

Carey Price Is Just Not Right

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Brendan Kelly of the Montreal Gazette,

I’m worried about Carey Price and you should be too.

The Canadiens’ all-world/other-worldly/greatest-ever goalie simply hasn’t been himself for the past six weeks and it’s right there to see in his stats. He has had four or more goals scored against him in four of his last five games and in one of those games, that embarrassment at the hands of the Minnesota Wild, he let in seven goals.

Worse, he has let in three or more goals in eight of his last ten games. This is simply not the Carey Price we know and love. Sadly, it is nothing like the Carey Price of the 2014-2015 season who was far and away the best goalie in the National Hockey League and, in fact, was the best player in Bettman’s league that year and has the trophies to prove it. The Price we’re seeing these days is a lot more like the young Price from his early years with the Habs, when management was predicting, correctly it turns out, that he was the new Dryden/Roy but the results on the ice were a lot less Hall of Fame-like at the time.

A Confidence Building Win For Henrik Lundqvist

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

On any other night in any other year, this one would have been routine for the Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist.

But considering the Bizarro World in which the franchise goaltender and has lived over the past days, if not weeks, Thursday’s 5-2 victory over the Maple Leafs, in which Lundqvist played a significant role, was anything but usual.

“I think this was a big game for me,” Lundqvist said in a king-sized understatement. “Sometimes a win means a little bit more and you enjoy it a little bit extra.”

The Rangers buckled down fundamentally all over the ice, but most especially in the area in front of the net they had begun to vacate as a matter of routine while losing three straight in regulation and six of their previous 11 (5-6), since Dec. 20.


Game highlights are below...

Video- Jake Allen’s Night

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,

“There’s a lot going on right now,” Hitchcock said. “There’s a lot in his head, he’s kind of locked up mentally and he’s going to have to fight through this. So beating it up any more isn’t going to do us any good. We’ve got to get him unlocked, he’s just locked right up.

“If we can help him get unlocked, then that’s what you do, that’s part of coaching. Nobody anticipated this, nobody on our team, nobody in this city anticipated this, but we got it and we’re going to have to figure it out because there’s no help wagon coming.”
