The NHL is back with yet another amazing, chill-inducing Stanley Cup final commercial, this time based around the names engraved into the sport’s biggest prize. Like ‘History Will Be Made’ and ‘No Words,’ the new spot, titled ‘Name,’ will be one of the best things you’ve seen all year.
Remember the commercial series, 'History Will Be Made,' which took us back through the post-season's greatest moments and wondered what would have happened had those moments not taken place? It was one of the NHL's greatest campaigns and one that still holds up. In five years, we'll likely be ...

A concussion suffered in January is still hindering Johan Franzen’s ability to get back on the ice. Franzen, 35, has a history of concussions and has suffered setbacks while trying to get back into the Red Wings lineup, but GM Ken Holland is hopeful ‘The Mule’ can play in 2015-16.
Johan Franzen is still trying to get back to full health nearly six months after suffering a concussion as the result of a collision with Edmonton Oilers left winger Rob Klinkhammer. MLive.com's Ansar Khan reported Friday that Franzen is still recovering from the head injury suffered on Jan.

10 years with one of the most stacked teams, 1 cup. Not worth that money.

Bill Foley may be the owner of the prospective franchise in Las Vegas, but it's poker star Daniel Negreanu who is helping lead the charge as Sin City attempts to land its first professional sports franchise. The Toronto native was part of the founding group that helped Las Vegas in their ticket drive.
By Sean Chaffin. For more than a decade, Daniel Negreanu has been the face of poker. With an arsenal of skills at reading opponents and making just the right moves, Negreanu was nicknamed 'Kid Poker' after winning his first championship at the World Series of Poker in 1998.

The St. Louis Blues announced Tuesday afternoon that they have agreed to a one-year contract with coach Ken Hitchcock. Hitchcock has been the bench boss in St. Louis for the past four seasons, but has failed to help the team advance to the second round in each of the past three post-seasons.
As THN's Ken Campbell reported yesterday, Ken Hitchcock will be back behind the St. Louis bench next season on a one-year deal. The Blues announced Tuesday afternoon that they have re-signed Hitchcock to a one-year contract, keeping him a part of the club for at least the 2015-16 season.

Bill Foley, the prospective owner of the Las Vegas NHL franchise, told media that the season ticket drive has reached over 11,500 season seats with more than 1,500 additional commitments from corporations and in suite sales. Foley added that he would not likely be attending the June Board of Governors meeting where expansion is expected to be discussed.
While his gamble hasn't exactly paid off quite yet, it appears as if Bill Foley, the prospective owner of a Las Vegas NHL franchise, was right about the hunger for professional sports in Sin City. The Las Vegas Sun's Case Keefer reported that, at a media meeting and question and answer period, ...

Luke Richardson has been talked about as an NHL coaching prospect over the past three seasons, but has yet to make the jump from the AHL. It appears his call up is going to have to wait at least one more season, too, as Buffalo’s hiring of Dan Bylsma could see Richardson back behind the Binghamton Senators bench.
When there's a coaching vacancy in the NHL, Binghamton Senators bench boss Luke Richardson's name is often brought up, but it appears he'll be back in the AHL for at least one more season. According to a report from the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch, Richardson has been offered a new contract that ...

Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper said he didn't see Cedric Paquette leave the ice early during Tuesday's morning skate, but did say the center would be "very questionable" for Game 6 against the New York Rangers. Paquette only has one goal during the post-season, but was heavily relied upon as a defensive center for the Lightning during the regular season.
If the Tampa Bay Lightning want to see Cedric Paquette in the lineup again this post-season, they may need to make it to the Stanley Cup finals. In Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals against the New York Rangers, Paquette got in front of a Derick Brassard shot and ended up blocking it with ...

Matt Beleskey’s overtime goal came so quickly from the start of overtime – just 45 seconds – that some fans in Anaheim weren’t even yet back in their seats, but it’s not the quickest overtime tally in playoff history. Matter of fact, it’s not even the fastest in this post-season.
Once it got to overtime, few expected Monday evening's contest between the Anaheim Ducks and Chicago Blackhawks to go anything less than one full overtime period. Shockingly, however, it was over almost as soon as it started – 45 seconds in, Matt Beleskey had won the game.

The legendary defenseman believes that Montreal should have beaten Calgary in the final and that's not the only topic he weighed in on. Learn from the wisdom of a star who won six Stanley Cups as a player and another one as a head coach.
It's hard to top Larry Robinson's resume. Not only did the Hall of Famer win six Stanley Cups as a defenseman with the Montreal Canadiens, but he also hoisted the trophy as head coach of the New Jersey Devils in 2000. Now the director of player development for the San Jose Sharks after three ...

Dylan Larkin wasted little time showing why he is one of Detroit’s top prospects, scoring two goals in his second professional game and powering the Grand Rapids Griffins to a 2-0 series lead over the Utica Comets in the AHL’s Western Conference final.
Well, that was fast. Detroit Red Wings top prospect Dylan Larkin waited all of two games to get his name on the professional score sheet and he did so with two goals – the first two professional goals of his career – as the Grand Rapids Griffins downed the Utica Comets 4-2 and tied the AHL ...
