    Patrick Kane, Eddie Olczyk, Dale Tallon and more team up and lace up for charity

    Luke Johnson has gotten a few chances to talk to Rockford head coach Jeremy Colliton, and he likes what the new coach is selling. “He seems like a knowledgeable guy about the game,” said Johnson, who played 73 games with the IceHogs last season. “He’s a younger guy and his career wasn’t too long ago. That’s always nice having a younger coach that can kind of relate to us a little bit more. I’m looking forward to getting going with him and working with him.” They’ve gotten to work together some already at the Blackhawks’ development camp this week, where Colliton has started to see who may be making up the IceHogs’ roster in a few months. The 32-year-old Colliton was a player himself not too long

    Nichushkin to stay in KHL, Dallas expects him back for ’18-19

    Valeri Nichushkin will spend another year with CSKA Moscow. On Wednesday, Dallas announced that Nichushkin — who left the team last season to play in the KHL — will stay in Russia for the 2017-18 campaign, with the expectation he’ll return to the Stars the following season.

    The Prediction Machine: My Take on the Devils’ Opening Night Roster

    2017-18 will feel like a fresh start in many ways for our New Jersey Devils; the team had a 1st overall pick for the first time since they’ve moved to Jersey, and the hope is that Nico Hischier can play an important role right away to aid the Devils in restoring their former glory. Additionally, a number of common names (Michael Cammalleri, Devante Smith-Pelly, Jon Merrill, and Jacob Josefson) from the past couple of seasons are no longer with the team. Youth is the future for the Devils, with only 5 players over the age of 30 now, with the elder being 34 year old Captain Andy Greene. With all of the roster moves throughout the offseason, and after reading reports about how players performed at the team’s 2017 Developmental Camp, I decided to try and piece together and early idea of what I think the Devils’ roster will look like when they open the 2017-18 season.
