Jonathan Quick stopped all 35 shots he faced for his fourth shutout of the season Monday against the Vancouver Canucks.

The shutout was Quick's 48th of his career. More importantly it moved the Kings back into playoff position one point ahead of the Anaheim Ducks in the Pacific Division standings. The Kings have excelled in the front end of back-to-back situations, going 7-4-1 in the first game. The Kings are back in action Tuesday in Arizona.

According to Larry Brooks of the New York Post, John Tavares is expected to meet with five NHL teams when the interview period opens on Sunday.

Brooks also added that it appears the New York Rangers will not be one of the teams. Teams are permitted to speak to players during this window tomorrow but they are not allowed to discuss any financial matters. It appears the most highly sought out pending UFA has narrowed his list to six teams (including the Islanders). The meeting will apparently be held in California.

Olof Linbom has been selected with the 39th pick by the New York Rangers in the 2018 NHL Draft.

The Rangers were the first team to take a goalie in the 2018 draft. New York is clearly looking for their goaltender of the future now that Henrik Lundqvist is past him prime. In six games at the under-18 World Junior Hockey Championship, Lindbom posted an impressive 1.66 goals-against-average and a .949 save percentage. He's a little under-sized by NHL standards (6-foot-1, 173 pounds), but he's quick and agile enough to get by. He's a few years away from suiting up in the NHL. He has the potential to develop into a number one goalie.

Ilya Kovalchuk has agreed to terms on a three-year contract with the Los Angeles Kings.

Kovalchuk's deal, which will become official on July 1, is reportedly worth an annual average value of $6.25 million. Kovalchuk had a number of suitors including the Bruins, Sharks and Blues, but he ended up settling on a Los Angeles team that struggled to find the back of the net last season. The 35-year-old hasn't played in the NHL since the 2012-13 season when he was a member of the New Jersey Devils, but he's remained productive in the KHL. Kovalchuk had 31 goals and 63 points in 53 games with SKA St. Petersburg last year. The veteran winger will have the opportunity to be a top offensive option for the Kings starting next season. He will have fantasy value in all standard leagues.

Mattias Samuelsson has been selected with the 32nd pick by the Buffalo Sabres in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

The Sabres took defenseman Rasmus Dahlin with the first overall pick and they selected another defender with the top pick in Round 2. Samuelsson is a physical blueliner with good size (6-foot-3, 215 pounds) and strength, which means opponents need to keep their head up when they’re on the ice at the same time as him. The 18-year-old racked up 11 goals and 31 points in 58 games with the US Development Program last season, but those offensive totals are expected to come down as he continues to progress through higher levels of competition. Samuelsson is set to begin his collegiate career at the University of Western Michigan next season. His father, Kjell, played over 800 games in the NHL with the Rangers, Flyers, Penguins and Lightning.

Alexander Alexeyev has been chosen with the 31st pick by the Washington Capitals in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

Alexeyev has played two seasons in North America since being selected in the CHL Import Draft by the Red Deer Rebels. The Russian blueliner put up seven goals and 37 points in 45 games in the Western League in the regular season before adding five points in three postseason contests. The 18-year-old is a good skater, he’s a strong puck mover and he has good offensive instincts. He still needs a little more polish in the defensive zone, but that's something that might come with more experience. If all goes well with his development, he could turn into a good second-pairing defenseman.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have selected defenseman Rasmus Sandin with the 29th pick of the 2018 Entry Draft.

The Swedish blueliner left home early in the 2017-18 season and made his way to Sault Ste. Marie where he had 12 goals and 45 points in 51 games. The solid defenseman showed flashes of offensive ability with some end-to-end rushes in the OHL as he has an extra gear, making him an above average rearguard. He is expected to go back to Sweden next season and play in the top division and that will certainly help him progress should the Maple Leafs decide they don't need him to play in the OHL. Despite his lack of height, he does not mind the rough going and does not get rattled in his own zone. Sandin will be a marginal fantasy player to start but could eventually be a nice three-four defenseman in deeper leagues.

The St. Louis Blues have taken Dominik Bokk with the 25th overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

The Blues sent pick Nos. 29 and 76 to Toronto for the 25th overall selection. Bokk grew up playing hockey in Germany, but at the age of 16 he scored 34 goals and 71 points in 41 games in their U19 league. Clearly he needed a greater challenge, so in 2017-18, he shifted to Sweden. He had just a goal and an assist in 15 Swedish Hockey League games, but he was far better in Sweden’s top junior level with 14 goals and 41 points in 35 contests. There's a lot of offensive talent here, but it needs refinement. He still doesn’t have much experience playing against competition at his level and consequently would benefit from more time in Sweden or the AHL before testing the waters of the AHL. He particular, he needs to take better advantage of his 6-foot-1, 180-pound frame when it comes to the physical aspect of his game. Bokk dropped a bit further than most expected in Round 1 of the NHL Draft and the Blues made the decision to pounce.

K'Andre Miller has been taken by the New York Rangers with the 22nd overall overall pick in the 2018 NHL Draft.

The Rangers traded pick Nos. 26 and 48 to the Ottawa Senators to trade Miller. The 18-year-old already has an NHL build at 6-foot-3, 206-pounds. He uses that size to his advantage and ability to move the puck through traffic. On top of that, he’s got good speed. He had nine goals and 29 points in 58 games with the US National U18 Team in 2017-18 and he added another goal and three points while playing for Team USA in the 2018 World Juniors U18 Championship. One factor to consider with Miller is that he grew up as a forward and while he converted a few years ago, he still has habits from his old position and his defensive play could use some work. It might take some time before he’s NHL-ready, but he does have a lot of upside.

The Edmonton Oilers have picked Evan Bouchard with the 10th overall selection in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

Bouchard is a two-way defender who brings plenty of tools to the table.  He plays with intelligence in all areas of the ice and his skill with the puck makes him a dangerous player when he decides to jump into the rush.  Bouchard generated 25 goals for the OHL's London Knights and he led all blueliners in the league with 87 points in 67 games during the 2017-18 campaign.  He added one goal and four helpers in four playoff contests.  Bouchard isn't a flashy defender and he doesn’t punish the opposition physically, but he still has good size and has the ability to impact the game with his steadiness, passing skills and high hockey sense.  The Knights captain could be NHL-ready as soon as the 2018-19 season.
Jun 22 - 8:44 PM

The Vancouver Canucks have selected Quinn Hughes with the seventh overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

Hughes plays a complete game at a high pace.  His creativity and mobility allows him to effortlessly exit the defensive zone and get on the attack on his own or with a quick outlet pass.  Hughes’ confidence with the puck extends to the offensive end, where he contributed five goals and 29 points in 37 games for the University of Michigan during his freshmen season.   The 18-year-old defender represented the United States at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship and the World Hockey Championship.  Hughes’ speed and decision-making are high quality assets that fit today’s NHL game to a tee.  He feels he is NHL-ready, but he may need at least another year in college to develop further, particularly in his own end, and get stronger.

The Detroit Red Wings selected winger Filip Zadina with the sixth overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

Zadina has plenty of offensive flair and game-breaking ability. His speed, hockey IQ and his shot make him a dynamic player in the attacking zone. Zadina also plays well in his own end, which typically leads to chances at the other end of the ice. He shined in his first season with the QMJHL’s Halifax Mooseheads, scoring 44 goals and 82 points in 57 games. He led all rookies in scoring and then produced five goals and 12 points in nine playoff contests. The 18-year-old winger also starred in the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship with seven goals and one assist in seven outings for the Czech Republic. Zadina projects as a well-rounded winger with tremendous goal-scoring upside. The Red Wings lucked out that Zadina slipped to sixth. He could be a steal.
