Derick Brassard is looking forward to receiving a larger role with the New York Rangers this season.

He's slated to be New York's number two center after the club bought out Brad Richards. "I try and improve every year as a player, but I am going to go about preparing myself the same way and I am going to be the same player, just try and be even better," Brassard said. "I think last season will help me and the whole team, because now we all know what it takes to really compete for the Stanley Cup. I want to mature as a player in all areas, and I want to take another big step." He made positive strides last season with a career high 18 goals and 45 points in 81 games. Brassard agreed to a five-year, $25 million contract on July 27.

Nic Dowd scored two goals in a 6-1 rout of the Anaheim Ducks by the Los Angeles Kings Wednesday night.

Dowd scored the first goal at the 8:22 minute mark and buried his second puck in the net 18:02 minutes into the second to put the game essentially out of reach. Devin Setoguchi, Justin Auger, Dustin Brown, and Andy Andreoff also got in on the action.

The Dallas Stars’ Radek Faksa came to play against the Colorado Avalanche, but back-to-back goals in the second period were not enough to lift his team. Dallas lost the 4-2 preseason decision Wednesday night.

Faksa played 45 games with the Stars last year scoring five goals in the process with seven assists. His time in the AHL was more productive with 15 goals and 11 assists in 28 games. Faksa’s two goals Wednesday night came in a flurry, only seven seconds into the second period with another following at the 3:30 minute mark. Unfortunately, he did not get any help and his two goals were the only scored by the Stars.

Chris Kunitz scored a pair of goals in Wednesday's 2-0 win over the Chicago Blackhawks.

Kunitz opened the scoring with a power play goal at the 2:31 mark of the third period and added his second of the game less than seven minutes later. The 37-year-old has seen his numbers dip quite a bit over the last couple of years and it's unlikely they'll climb higher this season. Kunitz will only be a fantasy option in deeper leagues.

Aaron Ekblad (upper body) has received medical clearance to play.

It was feared that Ekblad could miss the start of the season after he suffered an upper-body injury at the World Cup of Hockey, but after he returned to Florida for evaluation he seemed to be fine. Ekblad should be back on the ice with his teammates soon.

Dennis Seidenberg will reportedly sign with the New York Islanders.

TSN's Darren Dreger expects Seidenberg to join the Islanders after the World Cup of Hockey. It will reportedly be a one-year contract worth $1 million.

Kyle Quincey has agreed to a one-year contract worth $1,250,000.

In 47 games with Detroit last season, he collected 11 points, 49 hits and 62 blocks. Quincey will be a depth player for the Devils in 2016-17, but he did get a one-way deal.

Auston Matthews skated between James van Riemsdyk and Leo Komarov in his first session with the Maple Leafs on Wednesday.

The trio just arrived from participating in the World Cup of Hockey and Toronto is split into two groups for practices, but Matthews on the top line isn't an unlikely scenario for the start of the season. The first overall pick in the 2016 NHL Draft impressed at the World Cup on the top line alongside Connor McDavid.

Andrew Shaw will have a hearing with the NHL's Department of Player Safety on Thursday.

He picked up two majors and a game misconduct on Tuesday night in an exhibition game against Washington when he hit Capitals defenseman Connor Hobbs from behind into the end boards. Shaw dropped the gloves with Nathan Walker before he was sent off the ice.

Vladimir Sobotka will indeed play in the KHL in 2016-17.

He has reported to Avangard Omsk after attempting to rejoin the Blues for the upcoming NHL campaign. Sobotka will play the final season of his KHL contract, so St. Louis will have to wait another year.

As expected, Connor McDavid rejoined the Edmonton Oilers on Tuesday.

McDavid had three assists in three games with Team North America during the World Cup. Now that he's back with the Oilers, he skated alongside Milan Lucic and Jordan Eberle. It wouldn't be shocking to see that trio on the ice together in Edmonton's season opener as well.

Brad Marchand scored a goal and an assist in Team Canada's 3-1 win over Team Europe in Game 1 of the World Cup Final.

Marchand opened the scoring 2:33 into the game and he added an assist on Patrice Bergeron's third period goal. The Bruins forward finished the game with a plus-1 rating, four penalty minutes, four shots on goal and one hit in 17:27 of ice time. Marchand has had an incredible tournament so far. He has four goals and three assists in five contests. Steven Stamkos scored the game-winner for Canada. They'll look to sweep the best-of-three series on Thursday night.
