Going nowhere –

Josh Harding wants to play more. Wild general manager Doug Risebrough says he will.
And it will be in Minnesota.
Since the Wild signed Niklas Backstrom to a four-year extension worth $24 million earlier this month, there has been speculation that Risebrough would trade Harding. Unlikely, the GM said

In Ozzie’s defence

In his weekly compilation of news, notes and quotes, Eric Duhatschek writes that Chris Osgood has the confidence of his head coach and his teammates entering the annual spring chase for Lord Stanley’s goblet. 

Vancouver Canucks – Features: My Journey to the NHL – Jason LaBarbera

BC native, Jason LaBarbera, started his career in Abbotsford before moving down to Portland, trekking to New York, Hartford, LA, and back home to Vancouver and it’s been a long road but one that he’ll be the first to say, is definitely worth all the miles.
As a goalie, he’s typically playing for one of two positions on a team compared to defence and forward positions and there’s always immense pressure on the net-minder but one that LaBarbera continues to learn from. 
Like everything else, nothing comes easy and LaBarbera is a true testament of hard work and perseverance to achieving a goal and making a dream come true. 
LaBarbera shares his tales on his road to the NHL.

Scott Clemmensen might be gone from the NHL, but he’s not forgotten.
One of the highlights of his remarkable season came this week when his former teammates voted him unsung hero of the New Jersey Devils. The honor seemed especially fitting since Clemmensen wasn’t around to accept it in person.

No. 1 spot for playoffs should be Osgood’s to lose

David Hutchison

David is one of the founders of InGoal Magazine which he began in 2009. Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.
