Henrik Lundqvist said Thursday he’s months away from making a decision about his hockey-playing future after returning to the ice less than two months since undergoing open-heart surgery. The 38-year-old goaltender posted videos to social media earlier this week of himself in goaltending gear taking shots in net. That generated plenty of buzz and smiles
When you think of some of the Windsor Spitfires’ great goaltenders, names like Michael DiPietro, Andrew Engelage, and Michael Leighton immediately come to mind. However, there were dozens more that still had fantastic Ontario Hockey League (OHL) careers and made a name for themselves between the pipes. It made us wonder — what happened to
Today’s voyage through National Hockey League history will be a long one as it begins in the first season played and finishes in 2020. In the over 100 years of memories made on this date, we saw hat tricks, plenty of assists, goaltending milestones and a whole slew of big moments. Let’s get our journey
The Montréal Canadiens started the season as one of the North Division’s best teams, storming out of the gate with a 6-1-1 record, and recording a series of dominating performances against the Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks. The games against the Canucks were particularly impressive, outscoring them 29-15, including a 7-3 drubbing on Jan. 21.
8:34 AM ET With the 2021 NHL season structured as it is, and being played when it is, hockey fans were preconditioned to expect the unexpected before it started. Oh, it’s already been a ride. Well over 100 players listed on the coronavirus-related absences list. Thirty-five games being postponed and rescheduled due to positive tests.
Marc Roberts has spent over 20 years performing in silence. Well, silence in voice, at least. One can’t call being a member of the Blue Man Group silent, per se. Since moving to Las Vegas from the midwest in 2003, Roberts has been one of many to don the blue body paint and bald cap.
The New York Islanders finished the 2008-09 season with the league’s worst record. The prize for their futility, selecting first overall in the 2009 NHL Draft. There were a few options for general manager Garth Snow to choose from, center Matt Duchene, defenseman Victor Hedman, and center John Tavares. Snow did not show his hand

Michael Hutchinson stopped 21 shots for Toronto (15-4-2) in his second consecutive start in place of Frederik Andersen. The team’s top netminder remains out with a lower-body ailment. Auston
It would be easy to look at the New York Islanders’ 2020-21 season so far and think they may be experiencing a setback. Salary cap issues, something the entire NHL has had to deal with and will continue to plague teams, handicapped the Islanders’ ability to make some moves in the offseason. 18 games into
The Nashville Predators are off to a poor start, and the fanbase isn’t happy about it. Rightly or wrongly, a lot of the blame seems to be pointed at head coach John Hynes. However, even when it’s not the coach’s fault, sometimes a change is needed to shake things up and put a different voice
The Nashville Predators have had a disappointing start to the season to say the least, just one point ahead of the Detroit Red Wings in the Central Division and 26th in the league by points percentage. It’s still relatively early but the team is about 10 points out of the playoff hunt with less than
4:40 PM ET Even if Tuesday night’s controversial goalie interference call had resulted in a victory, Claude Julien still wasn’t long for the Montreal Canadiens. They squandered a hot start and tumbled down the standings in the pressure cooker North Division. General manager Marc Bergevin had seen enough. “It’s a hard thing to watch. Our
The NHL hosted a pair of largely successful outdoor games this past weekend on the shores of Lake Tahoe. The Colorado Avalanche edged the Vegas Golden Knights 3-2 in a game that started on Saturday afternoon and bled into early Sunday morning due to adverse ice conditions. Later that day, the Boston Bruins obliterated an

After two consecutive first-round exits for the Washington Capitals, personnel changes were to be expected. The team now has their third head coach in four seasons, a starting goaltender not wearing the number 70 for the first time in nearly a decade, and four new skaters with six combined Stanley Cups. Caps fans have watched
