The Vancouver Canucks have signed GM Jim Benning to a contract extension.

Benning has held that role since May 2014. While the Canucks are expected to miss the playoffs for a third straight season, there is some hope for the future. They have some promising young players with the most notable being Brock Boeser, who Benning selected with the 23rd overall pick of the 2015 NHL Entry. "I'm grateful to the Aquilini family and to Trevor Linden for the commitment they've made to me and for their confidence in our long-term vision for the Vancouver Canucks," said Benning. "I'm excited about the direction of our team and the depth and talent we continue to build. I believe we are on the right track and I am pleased to continue the work we started four years ago when we set out to build a championship team."

Chris Kreider played on the Rangers' top line Friday night in his return to action after missing 24 games following surgery to deal with a blood clot.

Kreider skated alongside Mika Zibanejad and Pavel Buchnevich, and although he didn't register a point in the Rangers' 4-1 loss to Minnesota, he played a solid game. "I thought he brought us some good energy," Ranger coach Alain Vigneault said. "The speed that he brings, that take-away speed that he has where he can push the other team’s defense, it was there. You saw a young man there that was out for quite some time with a serious injury. He really worked his way back, and wanted to come back and help the team. It was good to see." Even with the Rangers bailing on the season, Kreider is still a fantasy asset.
