Jimmy Howard leaves Red Wings shorthanded for ‘a while’

Last season, it looked like former Detroit Red Wings starting netminder Jimmy Howard was becoming expendable. He finished the 2015-16 campaign playing second fiddle to the younger Petr Mrazek, who had some of the best numbers around the league before fatigue slowed him down a bit. He still finished the year ahead of Howard, who was a disappointing 14-14-5 and boasted just a .906 save percentage – and it was assumed that he’d become the clearer number one by this season. He’s been struggling through his first 20 games, though, to the tune of a .899 save percentage. Howard,...

Jonathan Quick leaves Kings shorthanded until March

“Out indefinitely” was the initial prognosis for goaltender Jonathan Quick. Optimistic fans knew this could mean a return in December for the netminder who went down in the team’s first game of the season. More grim-minded supporters were eerily reminded of the Carey Price saga just last season. What started out as an ‘indefinite’ rehab with hopes of a mid-season return saw the Montreal starter sit out the entire remainder of the season, after going down in late October. He didn’t make a return to the crease until September, when he stood in net for Team Canada at the...

The Great Jack Campbell Reclamation Project

Jack Campbell arrived with the Los Angeles Kings this summer as one of the biggest reclamation projects in the league. He had no idea what his style was anymore. He had a poor save percentage, sporadic starts, and had fallen down a depth chart with the Dallas Stars at an alarming rate. To try and get an idea of where they were at, goaltending coach Dusty Imoo had Campbell – known among his teammates and coaches as ‘Soupy’ – go out on the ice. He wanted to see where the holes were in Campbell’s game, to see what kind...

Corey Crawford misses Philadelphia game for appendectomy

Through seven games so far this season, Chicago Blackhawks backup Scott Darling has yet to lose in regulation. He’s gone 4-0-1 and recorded a .909 save percentage, standing backup to consensus team starter Corey Crawford. That will change, though. It was announced on Saturday morning, via NHL.com’s Adam Kimelman, that Crawford is undergoing an appendectomy in Philadelphia. The news came out just minutes after the team started their game against the Flyers – obviously, without Crawford in the lineup. To replace him, Chicago inked former Temple University ACHA netminder Eric Semborski to an ATO, and he’ll sit as EBUG...

Robin Lehner day-to-day with hip injury for Sabres

Through the first two months of the 2016-17 season, Buffalo Sabres starting netminder Robin Lehner had been off to a great start. The 6 foot 5 giant, who reported to dropping from about 250 lbs to around 235 lbs over the summer, used his newfound build to ease some of the burden on his body in net. Add that to an adjustment in his movements – he reported to InGoal earlier in the year that he’s worked on more conservative motions and depth – and things were looking bright. “Just moving less, smaller movements, a lot more small shuffles,”...
