Player Notes

  • Wayne Simmonds hopes to reach 30-goal mark
    Wayne Simmonds is hoping to hit the 30-goal mark in 2015-16.

    Advice: "Thirty is a definite goal for me," he said. "I've come close a couple of times. As long as we're winning games and making the playoffs, I really don't care how many I get." Simmonds recorded 28 goals in 2011-12, 29 in 2013-14 and he hit 28 last season. He'll probably get close again this campaign, with plenty coming by way of the power play.

  • Chris Neil training hard, loses some weight
    Chris Neil has trimmed down to 208 pounds.

    Advice: He was previously listed at 215 pounds. Neil has been working hard to get ready for training camp after sitting most of the 2014-15 campaign. He missed plenty of time due to injury, but he was also scratched on occasion. Neil has one season left on his current contract, so this could be his final year with the Senators.

  • Sharks expect Joel Ward to produce
    Joel Ward is expected to provide the Sharks with some depth scoring in 2015-16.

    Advice: San Jose has had issues in that regard over the past few seasons. Ward may line up alongside Logan Couture on the second line or with Chris Tierney on the third unit. He generated 19 goals and 34 points in 82 games with Washington last season. In 2013-14, Ward collected 24 markers and 25 assists. If he plays with Couture then he could be worth a flier.

  • Sources: P. Kane meets with investigators
    According to multiple sources, Patrick Kane sat down with investigators and his lawyer, Paul Cambria, this week.

    Advice: Sources told the Buffalo News that Kane met with an investigator from the Erie County District Attorney's Office, an investigator with the DA's Office and a detective from Hamburg (N.Y.) Police. Kane's lawyer has said that some of the statements made against his client have been "completely inaccurate," but they haven't spoken publicly since then. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:56 pm
  • Phil Kessel to open camp on Crosby's line
    Phil Kessel is likely to start training camp on the same line as Sidney Crosby, according to coach Mike Johnston.

    Advice: "We're looking at Crosby with Kessel and Malkin with Hornqvist," Johnston said. "On the left side, there are a number of players. Even right wingers like David Perron or Beau Bennett might be there. We want to see how a guy like Pascal (Dupuis) looks." The lines will probably be tinkered with during the Penguins' eight-game exhibition schedule, but it looks like Crosby will have a star winger by his side this season. Kessel is a five-time 30-goal scorer who has hit 80 points in two of his last four seasons. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:26 am
