Video- Cabbie Presents NHL Players ‘Crossing The Line’

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the TSN YouTube page,

Tyler Seguin, Devante Smith-Pelly, Tom Wilson & Sam Gagner reveal how frequently and how far they cross "the line" on and off the ice. They demonstrate if they are "habitual line steppers" by stepping over a red line in the dressing room when it relates to interrupting a teammate's sleep, commenting on "off ice" performance, bad breath or sliding into an opponent's gf's DMs. As a show of trust, Seguin and Wilson hand over their phones and tweets are shared on their accounts by Luke Gadzic & Cabbie.

Afternoon Line- David Backes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“The guys that are great on faceoffs will still be great on faceoffs. It’s just a little bit of an adjustment. And they’ll probably, truthfully, learn to cheat on this one a little bit too. And Bergy will probably take 1200 draws this year and win 800 of them and he’ll be a Selke award winner. We’ll all have a hug, maybe after this next session, and life will go on.”

-David Backes of the Boston Bruins.  Backes is a member of the NHL’s competition committee and has more to say to Matt Dolloff of CBS Boston.

Niklas Kronwall On His Health

Blog: The Malik Report By Paul

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

"I feel pretty good," Kronwall said. "It's definitely getting there, just got to get the legs and lungs going."...

"The knee's feeling pretty good, a lot better than it was this time of year last year," Kronwall said. "Changed a few things over the summer.

"Last year I wasn't able to skate throughout August at all. This year from Aug. 6 or 7 or so, we've been skating at least four times a week. So been on the ice up until obviously last week."...

"Once the season starts, everything is up and running, I will approach it like any other season," Kronwall said. "Obviously, last season, not a lot of things went the way I wanted to for myself nor the team. So, I think there's a lot of guys in here that feel like they just want to get back out there and go after it and redeem themselves."

Hot Secondary Ticket Market In Vegas

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from A.J. Perez of USA TODAY,

The NHL expansion Vegas Golden Knights have about double the ticket sales of the New York Rangers and Chicago Blackhawks, respectively, and the Golden Knights dominate the top 10 list of most in-demand games, according to statistics provided to USA TODAY Sports by StubHub.

“It’s somewhat of a surprise,” StubHub spokesperson Cameron Papp told USA TODAY Sports. “We expected them to be popular, but not No. 1 heading into the season. There was a bit of skepticism about the Golden Knights because of the market they are in, but so far so good. Clearly, by the numbers, there’s a lot of demand.”

Shane Doan Could Join The NHL’s Hockey Operations Department

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

Shane Doan could be headed for a role in the NHL's front office.

TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun reported Thursday Doan has been in contact with the league regarding a position in the hockey operations department.

Doan retired after 21 NHL seasons  in July when he failed to land a contract in free agency. He spent his entire career with the Arizona Coyotes franchise.

LeBrun reports Doan's role, if negotiations go well, would fall under Colin Campbell, the NHL's director of hockey operations.
