Silver Knights goalie works his way from unknown to AHL star
April 15th, 2021 by Justin Emerson - Las Vegas Sun

Logan Thompson knew he might be sacrificing the potential of a professional hockey career when he signed with Brock University in St. Catharines, Canada, out of high school. Few players who attend college in Canada reach the NHL, and as an undrafted goalie with an unspectacular junior career, Thompson was already a long shot. He…

Brandon Hagel brings his own brand of swagger to the Chicago Blackhawks: ‘I just love how committed he is to doing the hard stuff every shift’
April 2nd, 2021 by Phil Thompson - Chicago Tribune

Future Hall of Famer or not, Brandon Hagel is not the type to let Patrick Kane gaslight him in a game of two-puck. “He makes up his rules sometimes,” Hagel deadpanned. “We just bug each other here and there. It’s just one of those things.” If there’s one thing the 22-year-old Chicago Blackhawks forward’s coaches…

March 8th, 2021 by Matt Kalman - Full Press Coverage

After NBCSN Boston’s The Camera Guys got the skinny on Trent Frederic learning how to fight in his family’s unfinished basement, it was time to dig deeper with possibly the last man to physically dominate the Bruins forward — his older brother Grant. Could Trent Frederic become a Shawn Thornton-style fan favorite? Absolutely!! 🥊 His…

Sabres excited to give prospect Jacob Bryson opportunity: ‘It just felt right’
February 25th, 2021 by Bill Hoppe - Buffalo Hockey Beat

Buffalo Sabres coach Ralph Krueger figured defenseman Will Borgen couldn’t have broken his arm. After the rookie blocked a shot late in the first period of Saturday afternoon’s 3-2 win against the New Jersey Devils, he stayed in the game, taking a regular shift over the final 40 minutes. So when Krueger learned another evaluation…

Canucks: Rookie Hoglander arrives as new-age power forward
February 18th, 2021 by Ben Kuzma

To those not in the know, the kid was a curiosity. Nils Hoglander’s claim to hockey fame were lacrosse-style goals more suited to a side show than something that would announce his rookie arrival in the NHL. And at 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds, measuring up to the rigours of the North American game — especially…

Canucks are all in on the Nils Hoglander hype train
January 18th, 2021 by Marisa Ingemi - NBC Sports

One game doesn’t tell the story of a season, even if there’s only 56 of them. Yet, the Nils Hoglander hype feels real. The Swedish forward had a strong training camp, earning a spot and then some. His debut against the Oilers last night didn’t prove his merit in the NHL for life, but it…

January 18th, 2021 by Steven Ellis - SI: The Hockey News

Had Finland edged out the United States to make the final of the World Junior Championship earlier this month, we’d likely be talking about Dylan Cozens’ recent MVP effort. Instead, he fell short of the title thanks to Trevor Zegras and didn’t get to bring home a gold medal, either, despite an incredible 16-point run…

Putting pen to paper on a three-year contract with the Florida Panthers not long after the NHL’s free agency period officially…
