Michael Grabner never forgot the Broncos fandom of his former billet Rachel McCann. The 28-year-old Maple Leafs winger gifted McCann and her husband with tickets and airfare to the Super Bowl to witness the Broncos win the NFL title.
Thanks to Toronto Maple Leafs winger Michael Grabner, the Denver Broncos had one extra fan in the stands to watch them win Super Bowl 50 Sunday night. It wasn't Grabner himself, though. Grabner, like many kids playing major junior, needed a billet family to stay with during his time with the ...

The Flyers are only four points out of a wild card spot, but making the post-season may be tougher without their second-line center. Sean Couturier will miss the next four weeks with a lower-body injury.
There hasn't been much talk about the Flyers this season, so it may surprise some that Philadelphia is knocking on the door of a wild-card berth in the Eastern Conference and could realistically even make the post-season in a divisional spot. But if the Flyers are going to improve their chances ...

Jason Spezza has been a point-per-game player over his past 20 games, but the Stars center could be out of the lineup for an important stretch of games after being forced out of Thursday’s game with an upper-body injury.
Thanks to 20 points in his past 20 games, Jason Spezza was on a near 30-goal, 65-point pace for the Dallas Stars, but the 32-year-old pivot may be out of the lineup for a while after suffering an upper-body injury Thursday against the Colorado Avalanche. Spezza left Thursday's game with 12 ...

Doug Caliendo suited up for a game hours after his father’s death and the contest had a storybook ending. After Caliendo assisted on the first of two goals to tie it in the third, he blasted a shot from the blueline to win the game in overtime.
Everyone would have understood if Doug Caliendo didn't suit up for his high school game Wednesday afternoon. Caliendo, 17, had lost his father, Lou, to cancer hours before the game. But instead of sitting out the game, Caliendo threw on his equipment and took the ice with his Notre Dame West ...

Winnipeg Jets winger Alexander Burmistrov is out $2,000 after being cited a second time this season for diving. It’s Burmistrov’s first diving fine, but the second time a Jets player has been hit with a fine for embellishment this season. Winnipeg’s Nikolaj Ehlers was fined earlier in 2015-16.
Alexander Burmistrov is the seventh player this season to be fined for diving, as he joins teammate Nikolaj Ehlers as players who have been flagged for embellishment twice this season. The NHL announced Wednesday that Burmistrov picked up a $2000 fine for diving during a Jan.

With three weeks until the trade deadline, the Arizona Coyotes will have to decide what to do with unrestricted free agent-to-be Mikkel Boedker. The 26-year-old is second on the team in scoring, but the Coyotes could risk losing him for nothing if they can’t sign him to an extension before the deadline.
The Arizona Coyotes were one of the season's best stories through the first half. After a 29th-place finish in 2014-15, it was believed the Coyotes were destined for a basement finish again this season. Instead, the youthful skill in Arizona carried the Coyotes to a playoff spot as teams broke ...

Maintaining success isn’t easy in the NHL and sophomore players find that out every season. After promising freshman seasons, these five second-year players are having a tough time finding their game in 2015-16.
It's rare in today's game that the sophomore slump hits rookie standouts hard. With the way the game has changed over the past several seasons, rookies who break out are usually able to maintain their level of play because the speed and skill that made them stand out as freshman doesn't ...

Pittsburgh Penguins netminder Jeff Zatkoff hasn’t played much this season, but he made the highlight-reel with a beautiful stick save in a relief appearance of Marc-Andre Fleury Friday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Pittsburgh backup Jeff Zatkoff doesn't get to play often, so when he does, he wants to make his minutes count. And while he couldn't help the Penguins overcome a 4-1 deficit Friday, he did make an incredible stick save during Pittsburgh's attempted comeback. With the Penguins back within one ...

It’s not a sure sign he’s set to return anytime soon, but Carey Price skated in partial goalie equipment Friday and worked on his lateral movement in the crease. Price has been out since Nov. 27, and it is reportedly the first time he’s skated in goalie equipment since returning to the ice Jan. 11.
Good news has been hard to find for Montreal Canadiens fans, but there was a promising sight on the ice Friday as goaltender Carey Price, sidelined since Nov. 27 with a lower-body injury, donned a glove and blocker and worked on his lateral movement in the goal crease during a skating session.

The Penguins are going to be thin at center for their back-to-back games in Florida and Tampa Bay this weekend as Evgeni Malkin and Eric Fehr are both out with lower-body injuries. Malkin could be out for just the weekend, but Fehr’s injury could keep him out about one month.
The Penguins have won four straight and are only two points back of overtaking both the New Jersey Devils and New York Islanders for a playoff spot in the Metropolitan Division, but if Pittsburgh wants to move past the Devils and Islanders this weekend, they'll have to do so without the services ...

Brad Marchand is having the best goal scoring season of his career, and he added a highlight-reel tally to his goal total Thursday. After regrouping in the Bruins’ zone, Marchand went end-to-end, between his legs and fired a backhand home.
One of the biggest reasons why the Bruins' offense has seen such a great turnaround this season is the play of Brad Marchand. The 27-year-old has always been a contributor for Boston, but he's been on fire in 2015-16 and he wasn't about to slow down Thursday night against the Buffalo Sabres.
