Ed Jovanovski (hip) doesn't have any plans for early retirement.

The veteran blueliner has two years left on his contract and he was limited to six games this season because of a hip issue which required surgery. "My mind-set is work hard in the summer, get my hip strong, but it's too early to say how it's going to respond," Jovanovski said. "I'm a driven individual and for me playing again is what I want to do and what I'm going to do."

Ray Emery will play in Game 1 of Philadelphia's series against the New York Rangers.

Paul Maurice has inked a four-year extension with the Winnipeg Jets.

Maurice replaced Claude Noel as Winnipeg's head coach and the team was a respectable 18-12-5 under the new bench boss. "Quite honestly it really didn't take that long," Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff said. "He's an impressive hockey coach, but he's an impressive person as well... Made a tremendous impact the moment he walked in." Maurice brings with him 1,119 games worth of head coaching experience, although his teams haven't been particularly successful, with the notable exception of the 2001-02 Carolina Hurricanes that reached the Stanley Cup Final.

The San Jose Sharks are considering using Joe Pavelski as the team's third-line center.

That's an unusual spot for a guy that scored 41 goals, but moving Pavelski might give the Sharks three strong scoring lines. In that scenario Tomas Hertl would probably be reunited with Joe Thornton and Brent Burns on the top line.

Drew Doughty (upper body) will be available for Game 1 on Thursday.

Doughty took part in Tuesday's practice, although the skate didn't include any battle drills. "I've known I'm good to go," Doughty said. "I don't need [battle drills] to test my strength or anything like that. But it'd maybe a good idea to get in a few just to kind of get into a game situations kind of thing. I'm sure they'll have some planned for me coming up here before game one." He missed the Kings' final four regular season games due to the ailment.

The Florida Panthers were awarded the first overall selection for this June’s NHL Entry Draft, winning the selection lottery on Tuesday night.

Florida owned the NHL's second worst record in 2013-14, compiling a 29-49-8 record while earning 62 points. The Panthers had an 18.8% chance at winning the top pick, pushing aside the league-worst Buffalo Sabres, who had a 25% chance at drawing the number one selection. GM Dale Tallon now has a lot of options going into the off-season, with around $30-million of spending money at his disposal and a choice between the top three prospects Sam Bennett, Aaron Ekblad and Sam Reinhart

"I can't say right now… but I feel great, I skated the full practice, and we’ll see (how the foot feels) tomorrow," said Malkin after Tuesday’s skate.
