The trades of Dave Bolland and Michal Frolik will create an opportunity for Jimmy Hayes and others to crack the Blackhawk lineup.

Hayes, along with Brandon Pirri, Ben Smith and Jeremy Morin, will get a real chance to fill the vacant forward roster spots this September. Chicago GM Stan Bowman, who traded Bolland and Frolik to free up cap space to re-sign Bryan Bickell, believes the Hawks are in good shape to replace the traded players. "It's not easy trading players that have been a big part of the team's success, but you have to look forward," Bowman said. "It's a puzzle, and you have to try to put the pieces together. "I'm excited about the ability to keep Bryan Bickell, and also at some point we have to open up some spots for some of these young players who have been pushing on the NHL. Whether it's Jimmy Hayes or Brandon Pirri or Ben Smith … or Jeremy Morin, those are four forwards right there who really deserve to be in the NHL, but they've been blocked out for a long time." Keep an eye on Hayes, Pirri, Smith and Morin in training camp as there should be a spiritied competition for ro

The LA Kings have sent Teddy Purcell down to AHL Ontario.

With Purcell down on the farm, the Kings will retrieve $950K of his $1.6M cap hit. The 31-year-old winger has been hampered by poor health and ineffective play all season. He posted just a pair of helpers in 12 games.

Mike Smith was in goal for the 3-2 shootout loss of the Arizona Coyotes to the Columbus Blue Jackets Saturday night.

Smith was stellar for most of the night with a save percentage of .967, but he let the first two shootout goals slip past him in the loss. If he looked a little tired, he had every right to be as he faced 60 shots and blocked 58 of them. Each week someone has to lose, but Smith was hardly a bad value in this contest.

Auston Matthews tied Saturday's game versus the Vancouver Canucks at the 1:56 mark of the third period before eventually losing in a shootout by a score of 3-2.

This was Matthews’ 11th goal of the season. Notably, the other scorer for the Leafs also recorded his 11th when James van Riemsdyk sunk a puck at the 11:30 mark of the second. The two shooters are tied at the top of the Leafs' leaderboard in terms of goals.

Alex Pietrangelo had an assist on both St Louis Blues goals as they lost a 3-2 decision in overtime to the Winnipeg Jets Saturday night.

Pietrangelo’s assists were to Alexander Steen at the 5:16 minute mark and Dmitrij Jaskin’s at 7:26. This lifts him to nine assists for the season and 14 points—decent marks for a defenseman. Pietrangelo has scored points in four of his last five games.

Tyler Seguin scored a goal and an assist as the Dallas Stars beat the Colorado Avalanche 3-0 on Saturday.

The assists were mostly there for Seguin lately, but he had been struggling a bit - at least by his terms - to find the net. Now he has a two-game goal streak and a four-game point streak (2G, 3A). Seguin has nine goals and 27 points in 26 games so far in 2016-17.

Ben Bishop faced 35 shots and stopped all but one of them as the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Washington Capitals 2-1 Saturday night.

Bishop needed an outing like this. He has been on a freefall in recent events with a four-game losing streak that witnessed a save percentage of no more than .900. His season mark plummeted to .902, which probably meant he was not on very many radar screens. Blocking 34 of 35 shots Saturday night gave him a .971, however, and will undoubtedly raise his salary cap in coming contests.

For the first time during a truly miserable 2016-17 season, Kari Lehtonen generated a shutout.

Lehtonen had a pretty light Saturday, as the Dallas Stars limited the Colorado Avalanche to 23 SOG in a 3-0 win. Lehtonen came into this game on a three-game losing streak with a putrid .885 save percentage, so this could be a huge confidence-builder for the goalie and his team.
Dec 3 - 11:41 PM

Alexander Wennberg scored the game-tying goal Saturday night late in the third to force the Columbus Blue Jackets into overtime with the Arizona Coyotes, where they won a 3-2 decision in the shootout.

Wennberg has scored goals in every other contest since being part of the 5-3 decision over the Tampa Bay Lightning on November 25th. This was his sixth goal of the season and his 21st point. Cam Atkinson and Sam Gagner recorded shootout goals for the victory.
