There’s a lot that comes with getting traded. For instance, there are unfamiliar surroundings, changed expectations, a different role, and new teammates.
Jason Demers may still be getting used to being in Dallas, but he certainly ingratiated himself to his teammates in his first game with the Stars. With less than five minutes gone in the first period, Los Angeles Kings center Jarret Stoll had to look back to catch a pass when Demers caught him with a nasty hip check: Read more
SUNRISE, FLORIDA – For the grand majority of their 20 seasons of existence, the Florida Panthers have done little to instill a sense of confidence in their fan base. An average of two playoff appearances every tenth of a century tends to have that effect. A regularly changing ownership group doesn’t help much, either. But the franchise’s current powerbrokers know full well they can’t change that with hollow guarantees, PowerPoint presentations or slick ad campaigns.
The only thing that will fill their 19,250-seat arena on a nightly basis is what they’ve consistently lacked since their inaugural season in 1993-94: wins, and many of them. Read more
Stars like hockey too, and everyone once in a while they’re more interested in chatting up last night’s game than they are in pontificating about their latest TV or film projects. In our weekly “Celebrity Overtime” feature, we take five minutes with various celebrities to discuss their love of the good old-fashioned game.
We might all just want to ask Matt LeBlanc “how you doin’,” but as it turns out, his history with the game is a story worth telling. Before he became a mega TV star thanks to his 10-season stint as Joey on Friends, he used to spend lots of time at the arena. His former hockey playing days have even translated to his new Showtime series Episodes, on which he plays a heightened version of himself. (That character plays a hockey coach on a show called Pucks!—it’s all very meta.)
Here, LeBlanc recalls the one time former co-star Matthew Perry dragged him back on the ice, the hockey culture in L.A. and more. Read more
In the Swedish third league on Wednesday, one of the most incredible comebacks in hockey history happened.
Down 3-0 in the third period, IFK Arboga scored with just under 12 minutes left in the third period. Then they scored again 20 seconds later. And again nine seconds after that. And once more 30 seconds following their third goal. In less than two minutes, Arboga had erased a three-goal deficit to Grastorps, and held on for a 4-3 victory.
While there are no four-goals-in-two-minutes comebacks in NHL history, these are the five best. Read more
If you’ve never heard of David Aslin, you’ll remember his name after seeing this ridiculous between the legs goal.
Thing is, Aslin, a 25-year-old winger for the Swedish League’s Leksands IF, probably wasn’t too well known around Leksand before a trade sent him there from his former Vaxjo Lakers. But after going top shelf, between the legs on Lulea’s Joakim Lundstom, you have to think he’s going to be a fan favorite awfully quickly: Read more

Tie Domi was back at it, dropping the gloves Thursday night – the virtual gloves, that is.
The former Toronto Maple Leaf and fan favourite was on hand at Toronto’s Eaton Centre for the grand opening of the new Microsoft Store where lucky patrons in line had the chance to face the former winger in NHL 15 for the Xbox One.
For Domi, the appearance was a chance to do something that he rarely gets the opportunity to do, while promoting the great work that Microsoft does for the city of Toronto, the city he played nine seasons for and still calls home. Read more
The Pittsburgh Penguins’ forward lines suffered a serious blow when veteran winger Pascal Dupuis was sidelined for six months with a blood clot in one of his lungs. It didn’t take long for rumors to surface over how they’ll address Dupuis’ absence.
USA Today’s Kevin Allen believes the Penguins have trade options to pursue. Among them are Buffalo Sabres wingers Drew Stafford and Chris Stewart, who are both eligible for unrestricted free agency in July, and Edmonton Oilers right wing Nail Yakupov. Read more
