Sidney Crosby considers Connor McDavid to be the top player in the National Hockey League. "I think McDavid has set himself apart just based on the awards and the accolades he's gotten and the consistency he's had," the Pittsburgh Penguins captain told NHL.com on Wednesday. "I think it's fair to say it's an easy pick just because of that."
Players want a single North American women's professional hockey league. "One league is inevitable," Rylan wrote in an email to The Associated Press, her strongest statement regarding a potential merger with the rival Canadian Women's Hockey League. "We will get this done,"
Joe Thornton said he is day to day and hopeful of returning to the San Jose Sharks lineup for their game against the Buffalo Sabres at SAP Center on Thursday, but coach Peter DeBoer said the 39-year-old center was doubtful to face Buffalo.
“What an incredible game and a tremendous effort by the @cardiffdevils So happy for the fans that came to see world class hockey. Now we set out to get back to @championshockey for the third straight year.”
Four of the greatest players in NHL history are among those who are about to have their names forever removed from the Stanley Cup. And Ted Lindsay, Glenn Hall, Alex Delvecchio and Bobby Hull and are entirely fine with that, honored to have been on the trophy for more than a half-century, carrying with them indelible memories of their teams and titles and happy to make room for future champions.
It's tough to make Duncan Keith slow down. Chicago Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville is asked if he thinks about scaling back the minutes played by the 35-year-old defenseman. But telling Keith to do that and getting Keith to do that are two different things.
The Tkachuk family photo albums are filled with memories of their multi-generation association with the NHL and how dad Keith's career opened the door to a world that helped teach his two sons how to conduct themselves, not mention how to play the game.

B.C. hockey player dies after ramming boards during rec. league game
VANCOUVER—A young British Columbia hockey player who died after slamming into the boards during a game in Metro Vancouver is being remembered by a teammate as a “gentle giant,” and “one of the best players out there.”
Noah Trulsen, 22, was playing with the Bolts in an adult recreational league in Langley on Oct. 3 when team member Gerry Leiper said his friend may have caught an edge while rushing to the bench for a line change.
