In the NHL

Valeri Nichushkin made the Dallas roster. Not too many surprises there. Physically he is ready. Outside shot at the Calder I guess, but if he just sticks for the season and continues to grow and adapt - then happiness.

Mattias Ekholm is one of four under 23 year old defenders to make the Preds roster.

Ryan Murphy didn't "technically" make the Hurricanes squad - being sent down in a procedural more - but will be back up for game 1. He had a great camp (when the puck was on his stick) and a poor camp (when the puck wasn't on his stick)....

Alex Stalock locked up the back-up job in San Jose. Hopefully he will see 10-15 games this season.

Dmitry Orlov was a last minute cut - disappointingly as I had hoped he would make the roster.

We will soon see what Joe Colborne is made of. He will probably be the top or 2nd line C for the Flames.

In Juniors


Oliver Bjørkstrand - 12 points in FOUR games... including two shorthanded goals. Playing on a line with Nic Petan but has been the standout player. Came on the back of an outstanding camp. Second in the WHL in points. Fell in the draft due to skating concerns but.... they must have been watching a different player.... see below

Also in Portland, Taylor Leier was named team captain.
