1. “We’re thrilled to be fulfilling his wish.” On a sunny, start-of-autumn day with the temperature at about 70, Alex Ovechkin wore flip-flops and a borrowed pair of baseball pants, Nicklas Backstrom donned shorts, and Braden Holtby sported sunglasses while modeling the deep red jerseys with a blue “W,” three white stars and the word “Capitals” across the chest. Hockey nets and boards showing the outline of a rink were set up across the back of the dirt diamond and the shallow outfield grass at the baseball stadium where the NL East champion Nationals play their home games. “One of the things I did for Commissioner Bettman a few years back (was) I had a rendering done of what the Winter Classic would look like here. So this is pretty cool to see,” said Mark Lerner, son of the Nationals’ principal owner and a part-owner of the Capitals, as he looked at the setup. “Every time I saw him, I said, ‘What about it?’ Ted and I were both on a mission since Jan. 1, 2008, that we wanted to have it in D.C.” Leonsis called landing the game “a big moment” for hockey in Washington. “Our city deserves it, so it feels good to finally know that we’re going to drop the puck New Year’s Day,” Leonsis said, “and I’m just hoping for snow.” He was asked how much snow. “Enough,” Leonsis replied. “Just no rain.” Tuesday’s news conference came 100 days before the Winter Classic, which Bettman said “will be sold out, if it’s not already.” “New Year’s Day used to be about college football,” Leonsis said, “and now New Year’s Day is about hockey.” The boards set up on the baseball field included logos of the Capitals and the Blackhawks. source:

The plan is for Anthony Duclair to spend one more season with the Quebec Remparts, his junior team. But the prized prospect is hoping to make that a tough decision for the Rangers. The 19-year-old left wing, who has played confidently so far in training camp, will get his first NHL action tonight when the Rangers face the Blackhawks in Chicago in their second preseason game. Duclair will play alongside center Derick Brassard and Rick Nash on tonight’s top line. “I do, I do,” Duclair said when asked whether he feels ready to play in the NHL. “Much better than last year, that’s for sure. I’m going to see [tonight] how I can handle myself against pros and take it from there.” The 5-foot-11, 185-pound Duclair, a third-round pick in the 2013 draft, had 50 goals and 49 assists in 59 games last season for the Remparts, his third in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. But his season ended on Feb. 28 after suffering a concussion. That’s one reason the Rangers’ brass wants Duclair to go through a healthy QMJHL season. The other is that the Remparts, as the host team for the Memorial Cup, have an automatic berth into junior hockey’s championship tournament and the Rangers want him to go through that experience. source:
