Ben Bishop’s new Stars mask features a traditional glow-in-the-dark paint job

Ben Bishop may have a new home for the upcoming hockey season, but he’s brought the glow-in-the-dark paint with him. Over the weekend, professional artist David Gunnarsson unveiled Bishop’s new mask for the Dallas Stars, who traded for the goaltender back in May, and it heavily features glow in the dark neon. Most importantly, it features a glow in the dark outline of the state of Texas. The mask, black with electric neon green line art of the state of Texas and the Stars logo, is almost identical to the one he wore with the Tampa Bay Lightning and his brief time with the Los Angeles Kings last season. Gunnarsson has been working with Bishop for years on his masks, and the original one for the

Gallant thinks Golden Knights can ‘win and compete consistently’ during inaugural season

What can we expect from the Vegas Golden Knights in 2017-18? “I knew we were going to have a pretty decent team, but the team was better than I thought,” head coach Gerard Gallant said, per NHL.com. Through the expansion draft, Gallant’s team was able to find themselves a quality number one goalie in Marc-Andre Fleury and a relatively young backup in Calvin Pickard.

What We Learned: Bruins have to pony up for Pastrnak

(Hello, this is a feature that will run through the entire season and aims to recap the weekend’s events and boils those events down to one admittedly superficial fact or stupid opinion about each team. Feel free to complain about it.) Long-accepted fact

2017 Top 25 Under 25: What could push #10, Travis Dermott, into the NHL lineup?

Today I’m going to discuss why we ranked Travis Dermott 10th in our Top 25 Under 25, ahead of his competition for an NHL roster spot—Calle Rosen (ranked 17th) and “man of mystery” Andreas Borgman (ranked 16th). But first, here is a chart from prospects-stats.com that gives us a baseline to measure Dermott’s work last season. Raw Charge’s stats guy Loserpoints gave this interpretation of the data: “Dermott’s shot rate is firmly in that low-end first pair range, which is encouraging. All around, that’s a solid profile for a player in his first professional season. Not spectacular but definitely reasonable for a first year.” Also more than reasonable for a player who also had to spend some of the

Monday’s Dump & Chase: Total Eclipse of the Heart

Nashville Predators News & Notes I’ll take it no news is good news? News & Notes from Around the Hockey World Kings seem to have no interest in adding Jagr – ProHockeyTalk The 45-year-old remains without a job. And honestly, I’m a little surprised. 46 points at that age is very good. 46 points at any age I consider to be good. I don’t think Jagr will remain on the market much longer. Should the Predators look to add him? #NHLTopPlayers: Top 20 Centers Steven Stamkos at 7? Auston Matthews at 4 after one season? Ryan Getzlaf in the top 10? Stop playing us like this NHL.com!

Malkin on ‘workaholic’ Crosby, Penguins’ chances for three Cups in a row

Evgeni Malkin shared some interesting observations with Sports-Express’ Igor Eronko this weekend, including that he believes that the Pittsburgh Penguins “have all the tools” to win a third Stanley Cup in a row. Quite reasonably, Malkin notes that the team kept its core intact. Of course, Malkin and Sidney Crosby are still the catalysts for the Penguins, so it’s always fun to come across the latest observations from the Russian star.

The Rangers could look to add a center before the season starts

Alain Vigneault said that it’s a “definite” possibility that the Rangers acquire a third-line center prior to the start of the season. (NHL.com) Vigneault said that “it could be in the cards.” (NHL.com) He has previously said that he would like to keep JT Miller on the wing and that could leave David Desharnais, Lias Andersson and Boo Nieves competing for a spots at center. Desharnais has said that he believes his best role is on the third line. There has been speculation that the Rangers could look to trade Nick Holden to acquire a center. Adam Rotter: Trading Holden for a center is what makes the most sense but I think that a move like that would occur at the end of training camp/right before

Canadiens acquire Jonathan Drouin from Lightning

The NHL offseason was always going to be weird and this one looks like it’s off to a proper start. As the NHL expansion draft for the Vegas Golden Knights looms, the Montreal Canadiens have acquired left wing Jonathan Drouin and a conditional sixth-round pick in 2018 from the Tampa Bay Lightning for defenseman prospect Mikhail Sergachev and a conditional 2018 second-round pick. On the surface, this is a rare trade involving two young assets. Drouin finally broke out this past season, putting up 53 points in 73 games. He appears to be just touching the surface with his skill. Meanwhile, Sergachev is still only 18 years old and considered one of the best defensive prospects in the game.

Morning Skate: Plenty of capable players on free agent market

At this point in the negotiations between David Pastrnak and the Bruins, it should be painstakingly clear that there will be no easy option for the Black and Gold.  Months ago, the Bruins and Pastrnak’s camp discussed a deal in the neighborhood of six years and $36 million, as first reported by CSN New England, but that ship sailed when Connor McDavid, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Ryan Johansen and Leon Draisaitl all signed massive contracts as young, restricted free agents in a summer where elite young players saw their market go way, way up.

Zacha should be ready for big step forward for Devils

Ever since Ray Shero took over as the team’s general manager the New Jersey Devils have tried to add a lot of offensive punch to their lineup. After spending all but one game of his draft year back in the Ontario Hockey League playing for the Sarnia Sting, Zacha got his first full-time look in the NHL during the 2016-17 season and it was a bit of a mixed bag, something that is to be expected for a 19-year-old, especially one that bounced around between two different position — seeing time at both center and wing — and started the season recovering from a hip injury. All of that is a good indication that he was starting to figure it out at the NHL level and could be poised for a big step forward in year two.

Winnipeg’s Enstrom out with concussion after Sestito hit

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) Winnipeg defenseman Toby Enstrom will be out indefinitely with a concussion, Jets coach Paul Maurice said Friday. Enstrom took a crushing illegal check from behind into the boards by Pittsburgh forward Tom Sestito in the first period Wednesday night in the Jets’ 7-4 loss to the Penguins. The NHL followed up Thursday by suspending Sestito for four games. ”There’s no equitable way to sort this out because you can’t measure what we lose,” Maurice said. ”The players suspended, they all have to be treated (the same) regardless of value to the game, so it is what it is.” The 6-foot-5 Sestito had been called up Wednesday morning from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of

What if … Ottawa landed Gary Roberts at 2007 trade deadline? (NHL Alternate History)

Note: It’s the NHL Alternate History project! We’ve asked fans and bloggers from 31 teams to pick one turning point in their franchise’s history and ask ‘what if things had gone differently?’ Trades, hirings, firings, wins, losses, injuries … all of it. Or what if the Senators pulled the trigger on any of the various trade proposals that the Quebec Nordiques made to acquire the first overall pick?

Kings seem to have no interest in adding Jagr

The Los Angeles Kings are in need of offense, and Jaromir Jagr, the No. 2 scorer in NHL history, is still in need of a new team for the 2017-18 season. Despite that potential match the Kings have no interest in adding the 45-year-old future Hall of Fam…

Shane Doan is ‘leaning toward playing’ one more season in the NHL

After 21 seasons in the NHL, Shane Doan may still have some gas left in the tank. At the age of 40, Doan is currently weighing his options and deciding whether or not he wants to return for a 22nd season. According to his agent, Terry Bross, another season sounds pretty likely. Bross recently spoke with ArizonaSports.com and said that Doan is “leaning toward playing” one more season assuming he’s able to obtain a new contract. “He hasn’t made a final decision, but I think he’s leaning toward playing one more year; I think he’s going to play. His body feels good, he loves the game and he loves the players.” Doan may not be on the same level as 45-year-old Jaromir Jagr, but then again few mortals

John Tavares and the one-year Maple Leafs fantasy

When an NHL insider puts forth an outlandish notion, it’s usually born from one of two places: Their own attention-seeking imagination, or from a seed planted by someone else, perhaps during an informal chat or a over beer in Toronto. Craig Button is an NHL insider for TSN, and recently proffered a whopper: What if New York Islanders star John Tavares hit unrestricted free agency, opted not to sign a long-term deal with anyone and instead went home to Ontario on a one-year deal with the Toronto Maple Leafs in an all-in attempt to win a Stanley Cup before the Leafs salary cap blows up? Button’s theory is that the Leafs could make this happen with Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner still on their entry-level deals.
