Gaudreau’s up and down Season
A common expression among coaches when their team has lost is “Our best players weren’t our best players.” The logic behind that saying in the National Hockey League is that a team’s best players usually play the most, score the most and get paid the most, so when they’re simply not playing well it’s really […]

Bailey Is Earning His Spot
Throughout their rebuild, the Buffalo Sabres have acquired a number of prospects they hope will be key players for the club in the future. High draft picks such as Rasmus Ristolainen, Sam Reinhart and Jack Eichel have already proven their worth. Hudson Fasching and Will Carrier, both of whom were obtained through trades, look as […]

Sid of 1,000 – Master Crosby
Sidney Crosby’s latest in a long line of achievements victimized the Winnipeg Jets last night. Facing away from the net and fighting through the left wing, Crosby relentlessly shrugged off a hounding Blake Wheeler. Gaining the puck, he immediately fed a pass into the slot where Chris Kunitz one-timed a shot past goaltender Connor Hellebuyck […]

McDavid’s Quest for the Art Ross
Connor McDavid is fortunate that Sidney Crosby missed the first six games of the season. It likely secured a scoring title for the Edmonton Oilers captain. Make no mistake, McDavid is earning his keep atop the NHL leaderboard, but Crosby leads the league in points per game by a country mile, and by mathematically he would […]

NHL’s Top Overtime Goals from 2015-16
The NHL’s decision to go from four-on-four overtime to the new three-on-three format just may be the league’s greatest rule change since eliminating the two-line pass back in 2005. It has provided us, the fans, with countless breathtaking moments, reduced the number of shootouts and has brought new life to the annual All-Star Game all while […]

The Islanders Refreshing Weight
Doug Weight is proving to be many things since becoming head coach of the New York Islanders on Jan. 17. A terrific communicator with his players. A passionate, invested leader. A smart hockey man, who is evolving from a terrific player in the National Hockey League to a pretty darned good coach. An early success, […]

Worst Colorado Avalanche Trades
With all the rumors and reports of Colorado Avalanche general manager Joe Sakic trying to find a market for a few pieces of the Avs roster — namely Matt Duchene and Gabriel Landeskog — we thought we’d re-publish this from The Hockey Writers Archives. Written by former THW contributor Kevin Goff and originally published March […]

Evgeni Malkin, AKA Stealth Bomber
Evgeni Malkin has four points over his last two games, giving him 58 points on the season. He’s now eight points behind Connor McDavid for the league lead and only six points behind his superstar counterpart, Sidney Crosby. Why isn’t anyone talking about him these days? How has he seemingly gone unnoticed in 2016-17? Malkin has been overshadowed […]

Leafs at the Trade Deadline: Buyers or Sellers?
The annual NHL trade deadline marks a special, if not magical time in the hockey season. Media coverage of the event is heightened throughout the hockey world, with fans of the game glued to TVs, computers, and phones in anticipation of the next potentially colossal deal. On the ice, the event marks a period of […]

Blackhawks Talent Runs Deep
The Chicago Blackhawks roster is comprised of a lot of talent up front and on the back end — there’s just no arguing the raw skill we see from the players on game day. Some would even consider the roster to make up one of the best teams in the NHL this season. Just look to the […]

UND’s Johnson More Hit Than Miss
Last season, University of North Dakota starting goalie Cam Johnson won All-American honors going 24-4-2, 1.66 GAA and a .935 save percentage. This year, Johnson’s numbers aren’t as impressive, but they’re not bad either. In 25 games, he’s 14-8-3, 2.25 GAA and a .908 save percentage. Down the stretch, the Fighting Hawks are going to […]

Crosby Scores 1000, Vermette Appealing & More
Pittsburgh Penguins‘ captain Sidney Crosby hit a major career milestone Thursday night when he recorded his 1000th NHL point. Crosby became the 86th player in league history to reach the milestone and just the first from the 2005 draft class to do so. Sidney Crosby becomes the 86th player in NHL history to reach 1,000 […]

Is Travis Dermott NHL Ready?
Much hoopla has been made of the Toronto Maple Leafs‘ prospect pool. Once a team with bare cupboards, the Leafs have used the last few NHL drafts to stock up and amass a talented prospect pool that is the envy of most teams. Good drafting is most obviously exemplified in the big three rookies, William […]

Leivo Making the Most of His Chances
Josh Leivo has been an interesting player to follow this year. He looked like he would be able to crack the lineup at the beginning of the season, but was sidelined because of an injury. After recovering from his injury, which seemed to suspiciously last longer than expected, he finally got to play. Leivo’s first […]

Dubinsky and Jenner Finding Scoring Touch
It’s been identified as the second line all year, but there is little doubt that right now it is the Blue Jackets‘ top line. Even though the Jackets have been riding a bumpy road as of late, the line of Jenner-Dubinsky-Atkinson has been electric, contributing 18 goals and 33 points in the last 19 games. This […]
