Boqvist likely to play in Hawks’ final 3 preseason games

The first-round draft pick is looking to make Chicago’s roster. Adam Boqvist will likely play in the Chicago Blackhawks’ final three preseason games, coach Joel Quenneville told Scott Powers of The Athletic on Sunday. Boqvist, who turned 18 in August, will try to make his case to Quenneville and the Hawks to take a spot on the team’s opening-night roster in front of the United Center crowd.

Red Wings D Mike Green out indefinitely with virus

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Mike Green will be unavailable for the remainder of the 2018 pre-season and the start of the regular season after a recent blood test revealed that he’s suffering from a virus that’s affecting his liver. The timing is especially unfortunate, since Green had just been cleared for contact right before training camp began following neck surgery this spring.

Stars Bring Top NHL Talent To Tulsa In Preseason Match With Panthers

Florida will be bringing a lot of youth. In the NHL, stats people, coaches, and front office executives may tell fans not to put too much stock into the final outcomes of games in the preseason. Maybe that’s because most teams rarely, if ever, play with their full strength until the regular season starts as they try to make it through without injuries to key players. Maybe it’s because these contests offer teams the chance to evaluate young talent alongside NHL players and help them make roster and player development decisions. Maybe it’s the small sample size that doesn’t allow for...

How Vulnerable are the Devils to Injury Issues This Season?

The Devils are a team that has improved their depth situation over the past few seasons, but remains fairly thin in a number of positions. Can the Devils deal if the injury bug hits hard in 2018-19? As we near the regular season for the Devils, the main question surrounding the team and being asked about them around the league is can they make a return trip to the playoffs after a surprise 2017-18 season. As constructed, most would have to say the roster has at least a decent shot, particularly if some young players in significant roles can take a step forward this year. The team still has...

2018-19 Nashville Predators Position Preview: Defense Part I

Nashville’s Stanley Cup Hopes Are Anchored in Their Top Four The Nashville Predators have indisputably the best quartet of defenders in the league.

All four members are returning from the previous season, ensuring that there won’t be any growing pains getting used to new partners. When Ryan Ellis returned from injury, he was paired almost exclusively with Roman Josi, while P.K. Subban was paired with Mattias Ekholm, who holds the distinction of being the most unheralded member of the bunch. ...
