    The New York Rangers Sign Draft Pick as Trouba is out for Thursday By: Jim Bay April 21, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Rangers announced Wednesday that the team has agreed to terms with forward Karl Henriksson on an entry-level contract. Henriksson was selected by the Rangers in the second round, 58th overall, of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft. Henriksson, 20, skated in 44 games with Frolunda in the Swedish Hockey League (SHL) this season, registering one goal and six assists for seven points, along with 18 penalty minutes. He was one of only 13 junior (U20) players in the SHL (and one of only eight junior forwards) who registered at least six assists and at least seven points this season. Henriksson’s 12:34 average ice time per game in 2020-21 was the fifth-most among junior forwards in the SHL during the season. He also...
    Chris Kreider hat trick wasted as the New York Rangers fall to the Flyers By: Jim Bay February 24, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Rangers valiantly rallied from a two-goal deficit but the comeback fell just short as the Blueshirts fell to the Philadelphia Flyers 4-3. The Rangers were playing without some of their top players, missing such key pieces as Artemi Panarin, Kaapo Kakko, K’Andre Miller, Filip Chytil, and Jacob Trouba. Miller was lost to the team when he was added to the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol list. Earlier on Wednesday, the NHL postponed Thursday’s game between the Sharks and Vegas Golden Knights due to a player entering the COVID-19 protocols. However, the Rangers-Flyers game was allowed to proceed. “We’d love to have all of our guys healthy and ready to go,” Rangers coach David Quinn said. “We’re no different than most teams in...
    New York Rangers forward Artemi Panarin is taking a leave of absence from the team after a hockey coach in his native Russia accused him of beating an 18-year-old woman in 2011, but the NHL star denies the claim and says he's being targeted for criticizing President Vladimir Putin. On Monday, former NHL player and current Russian league (KHL) coach Andrei Nazarov said that Panarin physically assaulted the woman in the Latvian capital of Riga in 2011. A known Putin supporter, Nazarov now coaches Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk, but previously worked with Panarin with the Moscow-area team, Vitayz, in 2011. In a team statement, Panarin denied the accusation, which he likened to an 'intimidation tactic.' 'Artemi vehemently and unequivocally denies any and all allegations in this fabricated story,' read the team statement. 'This is clearly an intimidation tactic being used against him for being outspoken on recent political events. 'Artemi is obviously...
    The NHL’s setup at Lake Tahoe lived up to the hype over the weekend. The league played two games at the site over the weekend, and the rink was on the golf course at the Edgewood Tahoe Resort on the Nevada side of the lake. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) For fans of the NHL and for fans of the scenic view, it was a site to behold for both games when the Knights played the Avalanche and the Flyers played the Bruins. ????????????

    15 Biggest Box Office Hits That Premiered at Sundance, From ‘The Blair Witch Project’ to ‘Get Out’ (Photos) Extreme Financial Makeover: 30 Moves in 30 Days The Athletic’s description of a NHL “television boom” feels premature, as “ratings up” only works with an opening-game focus There are several key things to consider with ratings stories, including who’s providing the ratings numbers, what those numbers are being compared to, and what other context is out there. The Athletic’s “NHL TV ratings up as push to engage fans outside rinks breaks from tradition,” a story by Sean Shapiro that was published Friday, is missing a fair bit of important context. The piece is about the NHL “television boom,” but it cites a grand total of two national US TV games, one Canadian national game, NHL.tv numbers (not specified, but “doubled”), and season ratings so far on one RSN (Fox Sports Midwest,...
    Coronavirus updates: Feds want vaccine rollout to speed up; maskless Alabama fans celebrate; Rep. Jayapal latest lawmaker to test positive Totally appropriate: Trump shows no remorse over role in Capitol attack As the Bruins finally retire Willie O’Ree’s number, it’s time for the NHL to also honor its first Black player Sixty-three years is a long time to wait to do the right thing. But the phrase “better late than never” exists for a reason, we suppose. On Tuesday, nearly 63 years to the day after Willie O’Ree broke the color barrier in the National Hockey League with the Boston Bruins, the team announced that O’Ree’s number will be retired in a ceremony next month and raised to the rafters at TD Garden. If that seems like something that should have been done a long time ago, you’re correct. A better time would have been the 25th anniversary or...
    Jared Spurgeon’s bosses had some news deemed important enough to deliver in person, so general manager Bill Guerin and head coach Dean Evason dropped by the Minnesota Wild defenseman’s house on the eve of training camp for a visit with the family of six. Spurgeon’s 6-year-old daughter, Colbie, was skeptical. “She asked if he was firing me,” Spurgeon said. No, dear, your dad is about the last player the Wild would get rid of. Guerin and Evason were there to formally name Spurgeon just the second full-time captain in team history. “From the day I got this job, Spurge is the guy that I heard all about. He’s the guy that people in this organization gravitate towards. They love him,” said Guerin, in his second season with the Wild. Spurgeon, who’s beginning his 11th season in the NHL, will replace Mikko Koivu, who signed with the Columbus Blue Jackets after...
    More from: Regarding 2020-21: 1. Training camps are set to open en masse on Jan. 3, with Dec. 31 the date for the seven teams that did not qualify for the 2020 Stanley Cup tournament. The season opener is scheduled for Jan. 13. But those dates are subject to modification, if the NHL’s talks with Canadian provincial health agencies do not yield an agreement under which the seven clubs north of the border would be able to play the season out of their home cities. Talks continued Saturday. If the league is required to move the seven teams into a hub in Edmonton for at least the first weeks of the 56-game schedule, or relocate the Canadiens, Maple Leafs, Senators, Jets, Flames, Oilers and Canucks to sites in the United States, the starting dates likely would be pushed back. The league has scheduled a Board of Governors meeting for...
    Here is what is certain about the NHL free-agent market that opens with Friday’s noon bell. The cap will remain flat at $81.5 million for at least the next couple of seasons. At least half of the league is squeezed for space. Certain teams will reduce internal budgets because of the revenue drain created by the impact of COVID-19. Some owners will even let the virus dominate them. Here is what else we know. The elite free agents will get paid just like they always do. Of course, there are only a handful of them. This class is comprised primarily of role players, bottom-sixers up front and third-pair guys on defense. And of goaltenders, lots and lots and lots of goaltenders. A look at the Class of ’20. Goaltenders There has never been a summer — wait, it’s autumn — like this one as it pertains to the goalie market....

Years of talking to the media have trained them in giving ineffectual soundbites that often times don’t say much of anything at all. In many cases, either after a win or a loss, you’re likely to get pretty much the same answer. © Provided by For The Win Rob Grabowski-USA TODAY Sports Welp, that was not the case Thursday night as Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask gave some straightforward responses to the media after the team’s 3-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes in the first round...

(Photo by Jeff Vinnick/Getty Images) Matt Dumba takes a knee to combat systemic racism  This past week, we’ve seen MLB and NBA players take a knee in solidarity during the United States national anthem to fight against systemic racism and police brutality. The NHL has taken some flak for their rather minimal effort in the battle for human rights, as players during exhibition games stood during the anthem with...

    Las Vegas is reportedly out of the running to host NHL games when the league returns. The NHL is currently considering a plan that will bring games to two hub cities during the coronavirus pandemic. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) Las Vegas has been one of the possible locations, but that’s apparently over. According to Frank Seravalli, Sin City is out of the running because of a “spike” in coronavirus cases. He added that there’s a real possibility the two hub cities end up being Edmonton and Toronto. For the first time in more than a month, sounds like Vegas is no longer a frontrunner to host an #NHL hub city. Spike in COVID-19 numbers in Vegas appears to have put a damper on their bid. As @TSNBobMcKenzie reported, very possible both hubs cities are in Canada ????????: TOR and EDM —...
    Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York City The NHL is poised to select Las Vegas and Toronto as its two central-hub cities for the 2019-20 season’s restart expected in late July, according to The Athletic’s Arthur Staple.  Vegas, home of the Golden Knights and T-Mobile Arena, will house the expanded Western Conference playoffs while Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena, home of the Maple Leafs, will host the East.  That means the New York Islanders and Rangers will get to stay in their region rather than travel out west as previously reported.  Toronto has not been nearly as affected as major American cities that threw their names in the proverbial hat of potential host duties. Ontario (Toronto’s province) has over 34,000 confirmed cases of the virus since the outbreak. That’s fewer than 21 US states despite the region having a population of...

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland announced Friday that the nation’s top public health officer, and health officials in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario had signed off on the NHL plan. THREE TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING PLAYERS TEST POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS, TEAM SHUTS FACILITY DOWN The decision followed discussions with government health officials, and comes as the league enters the advanced stages of selecting its hub cities — most likely two — from a list of seven in the U.S. and three in Canada, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly wrote in an email to The Associated Press. Daly didn’t rule out the possibility of two hubs being located in Canada from among Toronto, Vancouver and Edmonton. The NHL, however, did encounter a setback...
    The NHL unveiled the final details of its playoff format Thursday even as word came out that a ninth player tested positive for the coronavirus. Every playoff series will be a best-of-seven format after the initial qualifying round and teams will be reseeded throughout if the league is able to return with its 24-team plan this summer.
