Player Notes

  • Jeff Zatkoff excited to be back with Kings
    Goaltender Jeff Zatkoff is excited to be back as a member of the Los Angeles Kings.

    Advice: Zatkoff was originally drafted by the Kings in the 2006 and spent four seasons in their farm system before being dealt to Pittsburgh. He won a Stanley Cup ring last season with the Penguins and contributed by playing two playoff games but is now back in LA. "It’s exciting for me," Zatkoff said after the third day of Kings camp on Saturday. "You leave, you don’t think that you’re probably going to end back up in that organization. I went to Pittsburgh and they gave me an opportunity to play and then just kind of the way that things shaked out I had an opportunity to come back. I was excited. Just a chance to work with Billy [Ranford] again. I know a lot of guys in this room so it makes the transition a little easier, but definitely being able to work with someone that you feel is a big part of the reason you are in the NHL. To be able to come back and work with him really was a huge selling point for me." Look for Zatkoff to play in 20-25 games this season. Rotoworld.com 24 minutes ago

  • Jets' have 3 candidates to start in goal
    The Jets' goaltending battle will be a three-way affair with Ondrej Pavelec attempting to fend off challengers Connor Hellebuyck and Michael Hutchinson.

    Advice: It would be great for the Jets and coach Paul Maurice if one of Pavelec, Hellebuyck and Hutchinson could establish himself and run with the starting job, but it is likely the Jets will at least start the campaign in a job-share situation. It remains to be seen who will share that job with Pavelec. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:47 am
  • Aaron Dell has inside edge on backup job
    It looks like Aaron Dell has the inside edge on the rest of the field for the backup job in San Jose.

    Advice: Dell saw some time on the Sharks bench last season and was returned to the Barracuda of the AHL when they picked up James Reimer to backup Martin Jones. Reimer left the team for Florida as a UFA in the off-season and he has passed by Troy Grosenick and looks to be ahead of Mantas Armalis. Dell will likely get some AHL time to keep him sharp as Jones figures to see the vast majority of the net for San Jose this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:56 am
