Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa has been a superstar everywhere he has played in the NHL, Ottawa, Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Detroit. He can score at anytime from anywhere on the ice.

The 35-year-old was having another solid season with 24 goals, 26 assists in 57 games. He was on his way to achieving 1,000 points for his career with just 15 more when an injury put him out of action.

In Saturday’s win over the Pittsburgh Penguins, Hossa suffered an upper-body injury which will keep him out of action for 2-3 weeks.

Dallas coach Lindy Ruff gets career win 600 against old club, Buffalo

When Lindy Ruff was an NHL hockey player for the Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers, he gained a reputation as a player for his toughness, character and hard work on the ice as a left winger/defenseman.

He brought that same mentality behind the bench as one of the top coaches in the league.

Monday night, his Dallas Stars team defeated his former club, the Sabres, 3-2. The win earned the 54-year-old Ruff his 600th career win. Overall his record as a coach is 600-454-88 in 16 years.

Ruff was the head coach at Buffalo for 15 years, from the 1997-98 season until the middle of the 2012-2013 season. On February 20, 2013, the Sabres announced that Ruff had been relieved of his coaching duties. That ended his tenure as the NHL’s longest active-serving coach with one team and he was second only to Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA as one of the longest-employed coaches in all of the four major sports in North America (NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB).


Improving Sabres looking to remove interim tag from Nolan’s job status

The Buffalo Sabres got off to a rough start this season at 4-15-1, the worst in franchise history.

NHL owners are impatient with a start like that and thus general manager Darcy Regier and head coach Ron Rolston were fired.

Enter into the picture was interim coach Ted Nolan for his second stint with the team.

The Sabres are still on the losing end of the stick with a record of 16-34-7 but have played better under Nolan at 12-19-6.

Current general manager Tim Murray has said that the club is having discussions about lifting the interim tag from Nolan’s job status.

Av’s goalie Varlamov remains tough in regulation games

Semyon Varlamov, the 25-year-old goaltender of the Colorado Avalanche, recorded 33 saves and stopped both shootout attempts he faced in a 2-1 win Thursday night over the New Jersey Devils.

The Russian goalie has helped lead the Avalanche to their 30th win of the season, which matches the 2000-2001 team as the fastest club in franchise history to reach 30 victories in 47 games.

Varlamov, who started his NHL career with the Washington Capitals organization in 2006, has not lost a game in regulation since December 10, posting a 10-0-5 record since that 2013 date.

Rangers’ Lundqvist posts 48th shutout; sits one shy of Giacomin record

Goaltender Henrik Lundqvist stopped 38 shots on Thursday night against the Detroit Red Wings to collect his third shutout of the season and lead the New York Rangers improve to 7-2-1 in their past 10 games. The Rangers finished up their most recent homestand at 3-1-0.

The 31-year-old Lundqvist, a native of Sweden, has 48 shutouts, all as a Rangers goalie, one shy of the franchise record held by the legendary Ed Giacomin.
