Player Notes

  • Carey Price gets back on the ice Monday
    Carey Price was on the ice Monday with members of the Canadiens for the first time since the start of Phase 2 of the NHL Return to Play Plan.

    Advice: Montreal is getting ready for a Stanley Cup Qualifier matchup against the Pittsburgh Penguins with training camps tentatively scheduled to begin on July 13. The Canadiens and Penguins will play in a best-of-five series that is slated to begin in August. The team's ability to advance to the Stanley Cup Playoffs may hinge primarily on the play of Price, who was having a streaky 2019-20 season prior to the pause. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:41 pm

  • Coach Q wants to see Bobrovsky prove himself
    Florida coach Joel Quenneville hopes to see Sergei Bobrovsky step up during the Stanley Cup Qualifier round. 

    Advice: "He's got a chance to win for us and to prove that he's a top goalie in the game," Quenneville told "The Joe Rose Show" on WQAM-AM last Wednesday. "But goaltending, especially right off the bat, it's going to be so important for teams. Everybody has to get a groove off the bat. I think [Bobrovsky] is doing everything he can to help himself. I think it's a great opportunity for him to put this season, where all of a sudden we're only going to remember how he finishes, and let's go from there. That could really add a lot of confidence to our team and [Bobrovsky] as well." Bobrovsky inked a seven-year contract with the Panthers last summer worth $70 million, but he failed to live up to expectations in 2019-20. He sat four games prior to the pause of the campaign because of a lower-body injury, but he's healthy now and he's expected to be highly motivated. Florida is set to play against the New York Islanders in the Stanly Cup Qualifier round.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:18 pm
  • Rangers will wait to make No. 1 goalie decision
    Rangers coach David Quinn will wait until after practices and scrimmages during Phase 3 of the NHL Return to Play Plan to decide who will start in net during the Stanley Cup Qualifier round.

    Advice: The Rangers will face the Carolina Hurricanes when play resumes in a best-of-five series to compete for the right to compete for the Stanley Cup. Igor Shesterkin, Henrik Lundqvist and Alexandar Georgiev will be in the mix for playing time. "You can make a case for all three guys," Quinn said on July 1. "There's a lot of reasons to take 'Shesty,' there's a lot of reasons to start Hank (Lundqvist), and there's reasons to start 'Georgie.' This is such an uncertain time that that will play out over the course of the two and a half weeks that we're going to have before we drop the puck." Shesterkin had earned the No. 1 goalie job for New York prior to the pause of the 2019-20 season.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:21 pm
  • Dubnyk hopes to reclaim No. 1 goalie role
    Devan Dubnyk sees the Stanley Cup Qualifier round as a chance for him to seize back his role as the No. 1 goaltender on the Minnesota Wild. 

    Advice: "[Alex Stalock] was playing great at the end of the year," Dubnyk said. "I'm never going to be in a position where I'm just completely good with sitting back and not playing. I always expect to play; I always expect to be the guy that they want in the net when the time comes and [I'm] certainly going to approach this the exact same way and just be prepared, be ready to play if I'm called upon to play. If it's [Stalock], then cheer him on and be ready to go. It's a short series, so you want to make sure you're prepared for anything." Kaapo Kahkonen could also be in the mix for the Wild following a superb AHL campaign as well as some strong performances with the big club prior to the pause of the 2019-20 season.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:32 pm
