Jonathan Quick’s knight helmet style mask has been a staple over the past several seasons, even when he suits up for Team USA. But Quick is going a different route for the World Cup and tipping his cap to the Special Forces.
Jonathan Quick's mask design has been pretty standard over the past several seasons. When he's played for the Los Angeles Kings, Quick's mask has been painted to look like a knight's helmet. And when he's gone off to play for Team USA, the helmet has been updated with a few details to give it ...

A major piece of the trade that brought Lawson Crouse to the Arizona Coyotes was Dave Bolland’s contract, but the club may not be on the hook for much of his $5.5 million salary. The Coyotes don’t expect Bolland to play which would leave them paying only 20 percent of his deal.
In order to land Lawson Crouse from the Florida Panthers, the Arizona Coyotes also had to take on Dave Bolland's anchor of a contract that has three years and $16.5 million remaining. But the Coyotes aren't expecting to have to fork over much of Bolland's salary because they're not even sure ...

The St. Louis Blues named Alex Pietrangelo their captain Thursday, and the 26-year-old becomes the 21st player to wear the ‘C’ in franchise history. Pietrangelo said he understands he has big shoes to fill, but the organization feels he’s ready to face the pressure.
Alex Pietrangelo's growth has been steady over his career with the St. Louis Blues as he's gone from first-round draft pick to all-star calibre defenseman in six short seasons. And as of Thursday, Pietrangelo's growth has officially taken the next — and arguably biggest — step as he was ...

Tomas Jurco suffered a back injury that required surgery and could force him to miss part of the regular season. Jurco, 23, will be forced to miss an incredibly important training camp as he looked to fight for a better spot on the Red Wings roster.
The Detroit Red Wings are running into some injury problems and training camp, let alone the regular season, hasn't even started. In the same week that it was announced defenseman Niklas Kronwall is still battling a knee injury and can't compete at the World Cup and that prospect Vili Saarijarvi ...

Duncan Keith is out of the World Cup in order to rehab a knee injury, and Jay Bouwmeester has been named his replacement. Canada’s insistence on having an experienced, left-handed shot to replace Keith could prove costly at the tournament.
Team Canada's chance at standing atop the podium at the World Cup has taken two significant blows over the past week. First, it was Jamie Benn being ruled out of the tournament following off-season surgery to repair a core muscle injury. But Canada's braintrust found a suitable replacement, ...

The Dallas Stars have been built around their offensive ability, and they added to their firepower by signing Jiri Hudler to a one-year, $2-million deal. Hudler, 32, is coming off of a 16-goal, 46-point season and is two seasons removed from a 31-goal campaign.
The Stars' offense has been inarguably the best in the NHL over the past two seasons and since the start of the 2014-15 season Dallas has scored 37 more goals than any other team in the league. Suffice it to say that the Stars don't really need more firepower in their arsenal.

The Las Vegas franchise is still searching for a name and the recent registration of three domain names point to the possibility of the team adopting 'Desert Knights' as their moniker.
Speculation continues about the potential names for the NHL's Las Vegas franchise, with names such as Black Knights, Night Hawks, Desert Hawks and Red Hawks among the monikers which have been considered by the team. But a new frontrunner may have emerged and it combines the Knights name with one ...

Petr Mrazek has a brilliant mask design for the World Cup that features Peter Griffin, a staple of Mrazek’s masks, as King Kong scaling the CN Tower. It’s going to be hard for any netminder at the World Cup to top Mrazek’s design.
Petr Mrazek may not start every game for the Czech Republic and he may not post the best record or find himself among the leaders for save percentage at the tournament, but there's little doubt he'll lay claim to having one of the best masks of all the netminders taking part in the World Cup.

The Las Vegas franchise will reportedly have an AHL affiliate in place by the start of 2017, and the franchise appears to be headed for the West Coast with Salt Lake City, Fresno and Reno as potential destinations.
The Las Vegas franchise has been steadily introducing members of its front office, continues to push towards a name, logo and jersey design and is no doubt keeping its eye on players as they look to build for the 2017-18 campaign. But one other important piece of business is in line to be taken ...

The Arizona Coyotes have made the most of their cap situation once again, this time taking on Dave Bolland’s hefty five-year, $27.5-million deal from the Panthers while also prying away Florida’s top prospect, Lawson Crouse.
Life as a budget team hasn't been bad for the Arizona Coyotes this summer. At the draft in June, the Coyotes swung a deal to land a prospect they were targeting — defenseman Jakob Chychrun — and all that was required of Arizona GM John Chayka was ensuring he had room to store Pavel Datsyuk's ...

Niklas Kronwall was a surprising inclusion to Sweden’s World Cup roster given the amount of young, talented Swedish defensemen, but the veteran rearguard won’t be participating after all. Kronwall is out with an injury and will be replaced by Anaheim Ducks blueliner Hampus Lindholm.
The Swedish World Cup team is getting an upgrade on the blueline, though it will come at the cost of one of their veteran leaders being forced out of the tournament due to injury. It was announced Wednesday that Detroit Red Wings defenseman Niklas Kronwall, 35, will be unable to compete at the ...

SKA St. Petersburg weren’t messing around this off-season. First came the signing of Pavel Datsyuk and they’ve followed that up with arguably the most incredible team hype video ever. Flames? Check. Gunfire? Check. Fan eating what appears to be raw meat? Check.
When veteran Pavel Datsyuk left the Detroit Red Wings this past season, there were rumors of a few times looking to bring the Russian star aboard but Datsyuk ended up signing on with SKA St. Petersburg. There were no doubt a number of things that went into Datsyuk's decision to sign in St.
