Player News
Patrick Kane
Blackhawks' Kane To Join Toews On Top Line
Patrick Kane, RW, CHI
10:10 AM
News: Patrick Kane will be deployed with Jonathan Toews on the top line during Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Lightning, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Patrick Kane and Toews ended up finishing the Western Conference Finals victory over the Ducks as linemates, and coach Joel Quenneville will opt to keep his two superstars together in an effort to generate more offensive firepower. Quenneville could end up shaking things up as the series progresses, but no matter whether Kane and Toews skate together or separately, the Blackhawks' fortunes will likely rise or fall with the performance of both players.

Trevor van Riemsdyk
Blackhawks' Van Riemsdyk: Out Game 1, But 'Close'
Trevor van Riemsdyk, D, CHI
9:38 AM
News: Coach Joel Quenneville said Trevor van Riemsdyk (wrist) won't play in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Lightning, but is "very close," Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Analysis: It sounds likely that Trevor van Riemsdyk will be an option at some point later in the series, but the Blackhawks may need to see a little more practice time from him before giving the green light on his return. Though van Riemsdyk only contributed one point and averaged 13:32 of ice time in 18 games with the Blackhawks during the regular season, he still might represent an improvement over the likes of Kyle Cumiskey, David Rundblad, and Kimmo Timonen as a fifth or sixth defenseman.

Garrett Mitchell
Capitals' Mitchell Inks Two-Year Deal
Garrett Mitchell, RW, WAS
12:48 AM
News: Garrett Mitchell signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Capitals on Tuesday, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Garrett Mitchell has yet to suit up in the NHL, but has logged 224 career games with AHL Hershey. Last season, Mitchell scored four goals and tallied four assists while racking up 121 PIM for the Bears. He'll compete for a spot with the Caps during training camp, but he's mostly likely bound for the AHL again.

R.J. Umberger
Flyers' Umberger Coming Along
R.J. Umberger, LW, PHI
6/2/2015
News: R.J. Umberger indicated Monday that he's recovering well from March 19 surgery to repair his right hip and bilateral abdominal areas. "It's coming up on 11 weeks since my surgery and I couldn't be happier with the progress I'm making and the strength I'm getting back," Umberger said. "I basically totally rebuilt my core system. I'm strengthening my hip, my back, and it's been a good process."
Analysis: The procedure kept R.J. Umberger out for the Flyers' remaining 13 games, spelling a premature end to a 2014-15 season that saw the 33-year-old finish with a career-worst 15 points across 67 contests. Umberger qualified as a massive disappointment after he was acquired in exchange for one of the team's most popular stars in Scott Hartnell, but playing through the injury likely had much to do with his awful numbers. With Umberger feeling fresh heading into 2015-16, he should make for a respectable bounce-back target.

Jeff Petry
Habs' Petry Inks Six-Year Deal
Jeff Petry, D, MON
6/2/2015
News: Jeff Petry signed a six-year, $33 million contract with the Canadiens on Tuesday.
Analysis: Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin stated that re-signing Jeff Petry would be an offseason priority back in mid-May. Today's news has proven Bergevin is a man of his word, as the Canadiens now have Petry locked up through the 2020-21 season. The 27-year-old defenseman tallied 22 points this season, seven of which came in the 19 regular-season games he played in a Canadiens uniform after being dealt by the Oilers in early March. Petry also registered three points in his 12 playoff appearances with Montreal this season, averaging 22:17 of ice time per contest. He'll likely continue to play with Alexei Emelin as part of the Habs' second pairing next season.

Nate Thompson
Ducks' Thompson To Undergo MRI
Nate Thompson, C, ANA
6/2/2015
News: Nate Thompson played with a shoulder injury throughout the Ducks' playoff run, and will now undergo an MRI as a result.
Analysis: The same shoulder injury prevented Nate Thompson from suiting up for any of the four games of the Ducks' first-round sweep of the Jets. Thompson was, however, able to play with the ailment the rest of the way, starting with Game 1 of Anaheim's second round series against Calgary. The Ducks should provide an update on Thompson's status once they receive the results of his MRI.

Mackenzie Skapski
Rangers' Skapski (Hip) Out 4-5 Months
Mackenzie Skapski, G, NYR
6/2/2015
News: Mackenzie Skapski (hip) underwent arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to repair a labral tear in his right hip. He's expected to be sidelined 4-to-5 months.
Analysis: The 20-year-old will likely spend the entire offseason rehabbing in hopes of returning around the start of the 2015 season. Mackenzie Skapski made two appearances for the Rangers in 2014-15 but spent the bulk of the season at AHL Hartford, where he started 28 games and posted a 2.40 GAA with a .914 save percentage.

Philippe Desrosiers
Stars' Prospect Desrosiers Earns Top CHL Honor
Philippe Desrosiers, G, DAL
6/2/2015
News: The CHL has named Stars' prospect Philippe Desrosiers the CHL's Goaltender of the Year.
Analysis: Philippe Desrosiers finished the QMJHL season with a 2.50 goals against average and a .901 save percentage. It seems low, but in the high-scoring QMJHL that's an impressive mark from the Stars' 2013 second round pick. At just 19, he's not quite ready to be the solution to the Stars goaltending woes, but it's a bit of light out on the horizon for the franchise.

Maxime Fortunus
Stars Will Not Re-Sign Fortunus
Maxime Fortunus, D, DAL
6/2/2015
News: Maxime Fortunus revealed on Monday that the Stars organization has informed him that he will not be re-signed this summer, according to Sean Shapiro.
Analysis: Maxime Fortunus captained AHL Texas to their 2014 Calder Cup victory in one of three seasons he's spent as team captain. He was also a captain of the AHL All-Star team this season. The veteran defenseman posted nine goals and 25 assists in 65 AHL games, but has totaled just nine career NHL games. He'll certainly get signed, he doesn't figure to make an impact in fantasy hockey.

Pascal Dupuis
Pens' Dupuis Is Blood Clot Free
Pascal Dupuis, LW, PIT
6/2/2015
News: Pascal Dupuis is no longer dealing with the blood clots that ended his season prematurely, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: While the fact that Pascal Dupuis is "clot-free" is certainly encouraging, general manager Jim Rutherford stated that "there are other things from a medical point of view that have to be looked at." It seems as though Dupuis' future with the Penguins, and perhaps the NHL in general, remains uncertain.
