Ducks on a losing streak

Helene Elliott: The Anaheim Ducks have now lost eight consecutive games. Before the losing streak, the Ducks had won four in a row and nine of 10.

Hurricanes defensemen scoring

NHL Public Relations: “Sunday’s contest marked the first time that three different blueliners each scored in the same game since March 21, 2009 when Anton Babchuk, Joe Corvo and Joni Pitkanen each found the back of the net.”

Connor McDavid lucky after hit from behind

Ryan Rishaug: “Sorry for the grainy pic – This was 10x more dangerous than anything that happened to McDavid in LA, this could have been bad. These are the ones that require a major response no matter the situation. This can’t happen without a major ruckus of some sort following.”

Ray Ferraro: “But here’s the real thing with this play for me. It gets a lot of notice, as it should, BC it involves McDavid. But every player deserves better from the league and officials on this dangerous play. Penalty every time ! Most dangerous area on the ice.”

Fasel on ice size for Olympics and World Championships

Mark Masters: IIHF president Rene Fasel: “In Beijing 2022, if (NHL) is there, we will ask the organizers to play on the small ice. And in Finland in 2022 we will play on small ice at our World Championship. The future is having the best players of the world playing on the small ice.”

Sharks sign Radil

Cap Friendly: The San Jose Sharks Kukas Radil to a one-year, one-way deal for $700,000.

Scherbak on waivers

Renaud Lavoie: The Los Angeles Kings put Nikita Scherbak on waivers.

Schmaltz on waivers

Tom Timmermann of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: The St. Louis Blues put defenseman Jordan Schmaltz on waivers.

“If he gets picked up, then he gets picked up,” interim coach Craig Berube said. “If he doesn’t, he goes down and plays games. He’s got to play. We’ve got seven healthy D up here and obviously he wasn’t used much. … We’ve got six veterans and Dunn, the youngest. It’s tough to get in there.”
