MONTREAL, QB–Oh, what a hectic day it was in the great city of Montreal as we gear up for the 2022 NHL Draft. We should see some hockey trades today, so that’s a plus. Will the New York Islanders be busy?
Here are the stories to know in today’s Rosner Wrap:
NYI Hockey Now: In Marco D’Amico’s final Mock Draft, he has the New York Islanders selecting defenseman Kevin Korchinski with their 13th overall pick and in the second round the Islanders selecting Ryan Greene. Here’s more on these two players and how other scouts ranked them.
NYI Hockey Now: The New York Islanders will not have to wait over a month and a half before they play a game at UBS Arena in 2022-23. The Islanders, who started the 2021-22 season with 13 straight games on the road before their brand new home at Belmont Park was ready, begin 2022-23 on home ice. Here is the full 2022-23 schedule for the New York Islanders.
NYI Hockey Now: Last weekend, former New York Islanders head coach Barry Trotz joined The Bob McCown Podcast as he discussed his decision to step away, Lou Lamoriello’s decision, Lane Lambert, and more. He also grew out his beard.
Pittsburgh Hockey Now: The general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Ron Hextall, spoke to the media following his general manager meeting on Wednesday. He gave a slight update on the status of Kris Letang and Evgeni Malkin, both unrestricted free agents. The optimism is more with Letang. More on that here.
Boston Hockey Now: Last Thursday, J.P. Barry, David Pastrnak’s agent, confirmed to Boston Hockey Now that he and Bruins general manager Don Sweeney would begin a conversation on an extension just after July 13, the start of NHL Free Agency. Sweeney spoke to the media on Wednesday and confirmed that his chat with Barry will come a bit sooner.
Florida Hockey Now: Bryan Marchment, a feared enforcer who played almost 1,000 NHL games over the course of 17 seasons and the father of Florida Panthers’ forward Mason, has died. Marchment was 53.
Washington Hockey Now: With the NHL Draft upon us, Washington Capitals general manager Brian MacLellan has a decision to make regarding the 20th pick. Does he keep it and add to the prospect pool or does he use the pick in a trade to help fill in some roster spots?
Montreal Hockey Now: Montreal Canadiens general manager Kent Hughes confirmed that the Canadiens will meet one final time Thursday with top NHL Draft prospect Juraj Slafkovsky. “Just dotting our i’s and crossing our t’s,” Hughes said.
Detroit Hockey Now: In the 95 NHL seasons. the Montreal Canadiens and the Detroit Red Wings have faced off against each other 600 times in regular-season play. However, when they take the ice to open the 2022-23 NHL campaign, it will mark the first time that Detroit will be at home playing the Canadiens in the Red Wings season opener. Wild stuff.
San Jose Hockey Now: Bryan Marchment was not just a former player of the San Jose Sharks. He was a development coach, a scout and a big part of the San Jose Sharks family. Recently appointed general manager, Mike Grier, spoke about his friend.
Vancouver Hockey Now: Vancouver Canucks Assistant General Manager Emilie Castonguay, a key figure in the re-signing of forward Brock Boeser to a new three-year contract last week, and Canucks General Manager Patrik Allvin, spoke independently Wednesday about the Boeser process and the potential in getting a deal done with Canucks captain Bo Horvat.
