The Detroit Red Wings’ annual Hockey Fights Cancer Night is taking on added meaning for head coach Jeff Blashill this year.
A handful of days ago the Toronto Maple Leafs lost a game to a Vancouver Canucks team in its first game back from what was essentially team-wide COVID, a story that’s been told numerous times.
Let’s take a trip back in time to the middle of March. The Nashville Predators were in the midst of a three-game losing streak. They had dropped two games in a row to the Carolina Hurricanes and suffered a 6-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
Carbery, assistant coach Patrick Wellar, and associate goaltending coach Alex Westlund signed multi-year contracts
Jared Bednar will coach his 360th NHL game with the Avalanche on Thursday night at St. Louis to break the club record he shares with Bob Hartley, who led the Avs to the 2001 Stanley Cup.
“Hopefully, I can coach another 360-some games for the Avalanche,” Bednar said after the morning skate at Enterprise Center.
Duhatschek: Q&A with Panthers coach Joel Quenneville on their success, Aaron Ekblad’s injury and Pickleball
In the spring of 1996, Joel Quenneville had a front row seat to what was unquestionably the greatest moment in Florida Panthers history.
“If I’m Team USA general manager Stan Bowman, my choice to coach in Beijing — if there is NHL involvement [at the Olympics] in China, and that’s still to be finalized — would be Pittsburgh’s Mike Sullivan … Sullivan is on the long list of those with coach of the year credentials this season. The others: Rick Tocchet in Arizona; Rod Brind’Amour in Carolina; Sheldon Keefe in Toronto; Dean Evason in Minnesota; Joel Quenneville in Florida; Barry Trotz, again, every year on Long Island. That’s seven strong candidates and only three can be finalists.”
It’s been a milestone year for a number of Colorado Avalanche players as the team tries to chase down the third Stanley Cup in franchise history. But it’s also been a pretty good year for the guy pulling the strings.
Vancouver Canucks coach Travis Green returned to practice Saturday for the first time since March 31 following a bout with COVID-19, saying, “it was good to be back. The last few weeks have been trying, for sure.”
Don Granato has breathed life into the Sabres this season, but is he the right coach for their future?
Don Granato is winning. He’s winning games. He’s winning interviews. He’s winning over fans.
Alexis Moed gives an inside look at her role as founder and president of the Islanders Girls Elite Hockey Program and talks about how the NHL Female Coaches Association Program is supporting women in the league.
Tony Granato can laugh now in recalling how angry he was at his brother Don for giving up goaltending at 15 and switching to forward.
