NHL Rumors: Bruins Injuries (Hall, Lysell), Malgin Deserves Roster Spot, Caufield Impresses, Joe Veleno

Yes, we are finally approaching the start of the 2022-23 season, a time when all 32 teams have a chance to win the Stanley Cup. Here are some of the top headlines and notes prior to the NHL season: Injuries cost the Bruins Hall and Lysell.   The Boston Bruins have announced that Taylor Hall will be out week-to-week while 19-year-old Fabian Lysell left yesterday's contest and is out day-to-day. Both players are said to have suffered an upper-body injury and have missed practice today.   At this time, it is unknown if Taylor Hall will be ready to start the season, head coach Jim Montgomery added. Hall played on a line alongside David Krejci and Fabian Lysell yesterday.   The Bruins were thoroughly impressed by the offensive depth they saw throughout training camp, so the injuries should make life easier in the meantime. With Brad Marchand already out until midseason, Montgomery will look to shuffle the lineup.   For Fabian Lysell, the youngster left yesterday's game after

NHL Rumors: Järnkrok Expectations, Broberg Time, Edvinsson to AHL? + Carter Hart Update

Yes, we are finally approaching the start of the 2022-23 season, a time when all 32 teams have a chance to win the Stanley Cup. Here are some of the top headlines and notes prior to the NHL season: Järnkrok's Season Expectations Calle Järnkrok was a pleasant surprise to many Leafs fans this weekend, playing in his first preseason game of the year. Järnkrok recorded two goals, on three shots, while playing just over 17 minutes during a 4-2 defeat to the Ottawa Senators. In that game, Järnkrok was seen paired playing with Auston Matthews and Michael Bunting. Will Calle see first-line minutes this season? Of course, preseason is a trial run and players can always breakout, but does Järnkrok bring first-line abilities to the table? A more suitable role for the 31-year-old Swedish forward would probably be to slot in on either the second or third line. Even though the Swedes played well, we must remember that hockey is a marathon, not a sprint.Järnkrok's best offensive statistics of

NHL Rumors: David Perron a 'difference maker', Mike Matheson, Stuart Skinner

Yes, at last we are nearing the start of the 2022-23 season, a time in which all 32 teams have a shot at winning the Stanley Cup. Here are some of the top headlines and notes prior to the NHL season:   David Perron sees himself as a "difference maker."   The 34-year-old veteran forward views himself as a difference-maker within the Detroit Red Wings organization. Perron is coming off of another solid season playing for the St. Louis Blues, where the winger was able to put up 57 points in 67 games.   To start, the Red Wings signed Perron to a two-year contract, worth a total value of $9,500,000, or an average of $4,750,000 per year.   What does Perron bring to the Red Wings' lineup? Perron will act as a veteran presence on a young Detroit team. The veteran will play in the top-six with the likes of Lucas Raymond and Dylan Larkin, among some names.   The Red Wings are in the midst of a rebuild but are at the stage where contending for a playoff spot will be highly

NHL Rumors: Bruins Must Start Strong, Detroit Prospect Tournament, Ristolainen Curse, Ty Smith Breakout?

Yes, at last we are nearing the start of the 2022-23 season, a time in when all 32 teams have a shot at winning Stanley Cup. Here are some of the top headlines and notes, prior to the NHL season: Bruins Season Relies on a Strong Start There is no doubt that, on paper, the Atlantic Division looks to be the most competitive division in the entire National Hockey League. The Boston Bruins will be without stars Brad Marchand, Charlie McAvoy, and Matt Grzelcyk to start the season.   Without their three stars, the Bruins will look for various other players to step up and play in the roles of the key missing pieces. For example, Hampus Lindholm fills in as the number one defenseman.   A strong start could spark an unstoppable amount of confidence for the Boston Bruins. We all know that once Brad Marchand is back in the lineup, the Bruins will be close to unstoppable. Marchand is the most important player on the Bruins' roster; he brings energy, offense, and a leadership role.   An e

Players Likely to Breakout this Season - Dach, Merkley, Samsonov, Swayman, Zadina

The NHL season is just around the corner, with training camp starting up in a few weeks and preseason games scheduled for mid-September. Here are five NHL players that are likely to break out during the upcoming season: #5 Kirby Dach - Montreal Canadiens Dach was playing in a horrible situation with the Chicago Blackhawks. The team was basically tanking in the hopes of a high draft pick. With the Canadiens, it is likely that Dach will have a role on the top offensive lines of a stacked Habs offense.   For the Blackhawks last season, Dach played in 70 games, recording just nine goals and 17 assists for a total of 26 points. The former third-overall pick during the 2019 NHL Entry Draft struggled to produce offense throughout the season.   Dach is a player that plays with solid size, standing at 6-foot-4-inches. He plays a well-rounded game and uses his speed to beat defenders. He is a playmaker who protects the puck well.   Dach was acquired through a trade from Chicago to Montreal

Breaking Down the Game of Detroit's Moritz Seider

The German superstar has established himself as one of the best defensemen in the entire NHL. Seider, the 2022 NHL Rookie of the Year.   First and foremost, the Detroit Red Wings acquired Seider, 6th overall, during the 2019 NHL Draft. Many saw this as a poor selection, as Seider was ranked to go in the late first round. But boy, were people wrong!   Ever since being selected by Detroit, Seider has been a superstar for every single team he has played with. The German native played the 2019-20 season in the AHL. He played solid minutes for a very poor Grand Rapids team. As an 18-year-old, Seider did not look outmatched, playing against other high-level talents.   The following season, the Red Wings would loan Seider out to play for Rogle BK of the SHL. Once again, the 19-year-old would dominate defensively, playing a big role. This brings us back to the 2021-22 season, when Seider entered his rookie year with the Detroit Red Wings. Seider played heavy minutes with the team; he aver
