Fantucchio’s Focus: Islanders Starting Year Without Parise; Hughes Gets ‘C’ In Vancouver




Good morning, my name is Andrew Fantucchio. It’s Tuesday, September 12, and here’s what I’m focused on around the NHL today.

Parise Not With Islanders To Start Camp:

New York Islanders president of hockey operations and general manager Lou Lamoriello announced on Monday that veteran forward Zach Parise will not be returning to the team as training camp begins this week.

Hughes New Canucks Captain:

Ever since they traded Bo Horvat to the Islanders, the Vancouver Canucks had been without a captain. That changed when the team officially bestowed the title on defenseman Quinn Hughes.

UFA Tatar Changes Agency:

Tomas Tatar remains an unrestricted free agent as NHL training camps are about to begin, which is likely why the veteran forward has made the decision to switch agencies.
