    • Luongo starts All-Star game for team Toews
      Theres' a good chance Roberto Luongo will be Team Toews' starting goaltender in Sunday's All-Star game.

      Advice: The New York Rangers' senior Vice President of Public Relations and Player Recruitment John Rosasco tweeted a photo of Team Toews' depth chart and it had Luongo on top. If we go by that list, Corey Crawford will play the second period, while Jaroslav Halak will get the call in the third frame. Rotoworld.com

    • Yotes' GM thinks Ekman-Larsson could be elite
      Arizona Coyotes' General Manager Don Maloney believes Oliver Ekman-Larsson could be one of the best players in the entire NHL.

      Advice: "You can see he's not only a star now but he has a chance to be one of the best players in the NHL for a long time," said Maloney. That is some high praise from Arizona's GM. The 23-year-old had a strong year in 2013-14, scoring 44 points in 80 games, but 2014-15 hasn't gone as well for him. Ekman-Larsson is on pace to score 37 points but he has a plus/minus rating of minus-15 through 46 games. The low rating has more to do with the team surrounding him. Ekman-Larsson does have immense potential. Rotoworld.com

      Jason Pominville is looking forward to playing in an outdoor game in 2016.

      Advice: The NHL announced that the Wild will host the Chicago Blackhawks in a Stadium Series game on February 21, 2016. "I'm really pumped to have the chance to play in another outdoor game," Pominville said. "What a great experience it is for all the players and their families and all the fans that will have a chance to attend or watch on TV. It's great that the State of Hockey finally will be hosting one." Rotoworld.com

    • Aaron Ekblad is youngest D in ASG history
      Aaron Ekblad is the youngest defenseman to ever suit up in the NHL All-Star game.

      Advice: Ekblad will only turn 19 on February 7th. The first overall pick in last year's NHL entry draft has had an incredible rookie season for the Panthers. Ekblad has six goals, 25 points and a plus-7 rating while averaging over 22:00 minutes per game for Florida. He will definitely be in the Calder trophy (top rookie) conversation at the end of the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Roberto Luongo admits he needed fresh start
      Roberto Luongo admitted he needed a fresh start after his experience with the Vancouver Canucks.

      Advice: "There was nothing wrong with Vancouver, but it had gotten to the point where I think I just needed a fresh start," Luongo said. "We started with a blank page and I don’t need to worry about things as much. … The pressure doesn’t come from the outside but it comes from within. We’ve just lost four in a row and I’m as mad about that as if I was anywhere else. To me, winning is where the pressure comes from no matter where you’re playing." The 35-year-old is having a nice season in Florida's crease. He has a 17-10-8 record with a 2.32 goals-against-average and a .923 save percentage. Luongo is the main reason the Panthers are still in the playoff conversation. Rotoworld.com

    • Valeri Nichushkin could return in March
      The Dallas Stars are hoping Valeri Nichushkin (hip) will be able to return sometime in March.

      Advice: The 19-year-old had a solid rookie campaign last year, registering 14 goals, 34 points and a plus-20 rating in 79 games. This year, he's been limited to just four games. Nichushkin has enormous potential, and the Stars will be cautious with bringing him back too early. It may be wise to shut him down for the season if the Stars are out of the playoff picture in March. Rotoworld.com

    • Patrik Nemeth (arm) may return in March
      Patrik Nemeth (arm) may be able to return sometime in March.

      Advice: Nemeth has missed most of the season because he suffered an arm laceration on October 18th. The 22-year-old hasn't registered a point in eight career NHL games, so his fantasy value will be non-existent if he does return. The 22-year-old was Dallas' second round pick in 2010. Nemeth's return would definitely be a feel-good story. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: No update has been given in Cole's case, but it is possible that the Stars' forward will be out for weeks. Cole suffered the injury after he crashed into the boards on Tuesday night against Boston. The 36-year-old has 12 goals and 23 points in 44 games. If the Stars are out of the playoff picture before the March 2nd trade deadline, it is entirely possible that they would move Cole. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Amazingly enough, this is the 11-year veteran's first All-Star game appearance. "It’s exactly what I’m trying to do. It’s my first experience, so I’m just trying to have fun and enjoy it," said Bergeron. "I want to soak everything in, and go along with it. But you also want to relax at the same time, and find some time for that. I’m really looking forward to the next couple of days, take it with a grain of salt and have some fun." Rotoworld.com

    • Shea Weber was nervous before hardest shot
      Shea Weber said he was nervous before registering his 108.5 mph shot during Saturday's skills competition.

      Advice: Weber also believes that Bruins' defenseman is the man to beat at the event (Chara wasn't named to the All-Star team this year). "Obviously, [Chara]'s the guy to beat all the time," Weber said. "He's got the big shot. Honestly, I was nervous because there's some guys out there that can rip it." The Predators' defenseman was just 0.3 mph away from Chara's all-time record of 108.8 mph. Rotoworld.com

    • Giroux thinks Flyers should be in playoffs
      Claude Giroux thinks the Philadelphia Flyers should be in the playoffs.

      Advice: Giroux thinks there is plenty of talent on this year's edition of the team and can't believe the Flyers are 12 points out of a playoff spot. "I'm not the only one frustrated. I think everyone in the room is frustrated," Giroux said. "Instead of me going in and yelling at everybody, I think it's important we stick together and we do this together. We can't be blaming and pointing fingers. I think it's important we stick together, and if we do this, we're going to get out of this hole." Jakob Voracek and Giroux are first and tied for third respectively in the race for the Art Ross Trophy, so it is a bit surprising the Flyers are so far back with that scoring duo. Rotoworld.com

      Kyle Okposo has six goals and 12 points in his last nine games.

      Advice: Of course a four goal game won't hurt that stat as Okposo managed to do on January 16. Okposo has been hot, along with linemate John Tavares, who has six goals and 13 points in the same nine games. Okposo has 14 goals and 44 points in 46 games which ranks him tied for 13th in NHL scoring, along with Phil Kessel and Henrik Zetterberg. Rotoworld.com

    • Sergei Bobrovsky out at least a month
      Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch reports that Sergei Bobrovsky will miss at least a month of action with a groin injury.

      Advice: Bobrovsky was all set to play in net in the All-Star game which is being played in Columbus, so that was a big blow as well. He had flown in his father from Siberia to watch the All-Star festivities, only to pick up the injury to the right side of his groin. "It is sad, really sad," Bobrovsky said with a wilting voice. "I wanted to play in front of my fans, with my teammates (Ryan Johansen and Foligno). It’s the first time (as an) All-Star for me. It was the first time for my city. It was so special, and I am so disappointed right now." Rotoworld.com

    • Oliver Ekman-Larsson a star after slow start
      Oliver Ekman-Larsson has really turned his game around of late after a slow start to the season.

      Advice: Ekman-Larsson is tied for the NHL lead in goals by a defenseman with 12 and has 21 points with a minus-15 rating in 46 games on a poor Arizona team but was minus-13 in his first 11 games, so he has played well since. He has eight power play goals to lead all defensemen. "Some of the adversity that he's faced early on in the year — he didn't play very well — those are all learning experiences that he'll go through that will make him a much better player," coach Dave Tippett said. "He wants to be that consistent, top player. You go through some adversity like that, you learn how to deal with those and make sure you're prepared every night." The 23-year-old is a stud defenseman who gets little recognition because he plays in the desert. Rotoworld.com

    • OEL helps Team Foligno win skills competition
      Oliver Ekman-Larsson helped Team Foligno seal their 25-19 win in the NHL All-Star skills competition over Team Toews with two goals in the shootout event.

      Advice: OEL, who beat Roberto Luongo on both goals, also showed off his slick stick handling during the skills challenge relay, deftly controlling the puck through a serious of pucks set in a line. One of the highlights of this one was Luongo’s sprawling save on on a dangle from Jiri Sekac. Team Foligno's win was never in doubt in this one, but the real thing comes Sunday. The All-Star Game will be held at 5 p.m ET. Rotoworld.com

    • Shea Weber wins hardest shot: 108.5 mph
      Shea Weber’s 108.5 mph shot in the NHL's hardest shot event in the NHL All-Star skills competition salvaged two points for Team Toews.

      Advice: Per the NHL’s public relations department: Weber’s blast was 0.3 seconds off Zdeno Chara’s record shot from the 2012 event. Suffice to say, opponents will not be eager to get in the way of that puck when he launches it from the point. Team Foligno took three of five points in this event as their three shooters — Alex Ovechkin, Brent Burns, and Steven Stamkos all won their individual matchups. Team Foligno leads 15-4. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Bobrovsky missed 14 games with the injury in 2013-14 and this one will keep him out 'a while' according to GM Jarmo Kekalainen. Anton Forsberg is expected to be recalled after the All-Star game and he could see a lot of action, sharing the net with Curtis McElhinney. Rotoworld.com

      Team Toews selected Phil Kessel with their first pick in the NHL All-Star player draft, but they later traded him to Team Foligno for Tyler Seguin.

      Advice: The two teams made the comical trade because of the Kessel-Seguin swap that occurred between Boston and Toronto a few years ago. Ryan Getzlaf and Rick Nash were Toews' assistant captains. Tyler Seguin (DAL), Jakub Voracek (PHI), John Tavares (NYI), Vladimir Tarasenko (STL), Patrice Bergeron (BOS), Patrik Elias (NJ), Tyler Johnson (TB) and Filip Forsberg (NSH) are the forwards for Team Toews. Filip Forsberg and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins both received cars because they were the last players selected on their respective All-Star teams.

    • Sergei Bobrovsky forced to leave early
      Sergei Bobrovsky was forced to leave Wednesday's game with the Jets with an apparent lower body injury.

      Advice: He looked to kick his leg out on a shot attempt and stretched out a muscle the wrong way. It has a been a nightmare of a season so far for Bobrovsky injuries wise, but he looked to be getting back on the right track of late until this occurrence. Good news is that the All-Star break is here and he and the Blue Jackets will have plenty of time to figure out a proper diagnosis. Hopefully it's just a precaution as we will know more with his MRI scheduled for tomorrow. He will likely miss the All-Star game festivities. Rotoworld.com
