MacLean gives up hockey career … European signings … Cole, Hall and Edler injury notes … Scouting the WHL

  • Sportsnet: Coyotes Brett MacLean (23 years old) will have to give up his hockey career after he went into sudden cardiac arrest during a summer pickup hockey game.

    “We still held out some hope that he could help us down the road,” said Coyotes GM Don Maloney. “Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. But the good thing is he’s healthy and he can get on with his life.”

  • Dave Stubbs via twitter: Canadiens Erik Cole is still recoving from a lower-body injury and hopes to be locked out this week.
  • Darren Dreger via twitter: Taylor Hall will meet with a surgeon this week, and once he gets clearance he could be 10-14 days away from joining the Oilers AHL team.
  • Cody Nickolet via twitter: Scouts at the WHL’s Portland-Saskatoon game last night: Oilers, Wild, Devils, Rangers, Canucks, Blackhawks, Capitals and Jets.

State of the Phoenix Coyotes: NHL Trade Deadline Edition

Written by Jordan Gluck of, and can be found at @dylanswisdom

When looking at the Coyotes at the start of the season, I and probably most of you think the same thing. Which players are going to be in there fire sale at the deadline? To the surprise of many they Dave Tippets team stays competitive and makes the playoffs as they’ve done the past 2 seasons and are on pace to again this season. Although they have no owner, GM Don Maloney have put a competitive team on the ice with a budget payroll.

With 73 points on top of the pacific division they will be looking to add but on a budget. They have already acquired Antoine Vermette from the Columbus Blue Jackets. One big area of concern is they’re last ranked power play. Radim Vrbata has had a tremendous season already reaching the 30 goal plateau. All star Keith Yandle has also had a very impressive season, so has coyotes points leader Ray Whitney and captain Shane Doan. I also look at how goalie Mike Smith is performing and who needs Bryzgolov (enjoy Philly only 8 years left). If not for Panthers coach Kevin Dineen and Blues coach Ken Hitchcock, Dave Tippet would be favored for the Jack Adams award.

Twitter notes involving the Maple Leafs and Gagner, Sabres, Jets, Rangers, Wild, Kings and Panthers

  • Damien Cox via twitter: Persistant chatter that the Maple Leafs are interested in Sam Gagner of the Oilers. A defenseman would head to Edmonton.
  • Luke DeCock via twitter: DeCock wonders that if Gagner his available, would he fit in Carolina, and what would it cost them?
  • Darren Dreger via twitter: If Connolly comes off the IR on Saturday, the Leafs will need to clear a roster spot. Matt Frattin and Jake Gardiner don’t need to clear waivers. Dupuis needs to clear waivers. Waivers or a trade coming for the Leafs?
  • Dennis Bernstein via twitter: Answering my question on whether Jonathan Bernier will start somewhere this year, he gave a multiple choice answer: 1) next season 2) traded at deadline 3) Quick has unforeseen slump. He sees Quick starting 56 games and Bernier 36 games.
