The Czech Republic is well represented in the 31-40 section of the Hockey’s Future ranking of the Top 50 NHL prospects for the Fall of 2015. Three Czechs are included among the 10 prospects in this group, with six of the 10 hailing from Europe. Read more»

Auston Matthews is taking an unconventional path to the NHL, and has earned a few accolades already while playing in Switzerland. Two electric playmakers go head-to-head in a battle of assist machines in the QMJHL, and a pair of potential Canadian teammates will likely see a lot of each other in a weekend contest. The Tampa Bay Lightning’s newest signee lines up against a powerhouse forward in what could be a preview of what to expect in the future from both Floridian franchises. NCAA hockey is back, and two Top-20 teams are set to clash in a non-conference game to close out this week’s edition of Prospect Faceoff.

The American Hockey League has switched its conference format for the 2015-16 season as there are now two divisions in each conference. In the Eastern Conference, it’s now the Atlantic and North Divisions – with the Manchester Monarchs, Worcester Sharks and Norfolk Admirals no longer AHL franchises. All three have re-located west as the league has added five teams in California as part of the AHL’s western expansion. Read more»

The New York Islanders have moved to Brooklyn this season, and are looking to build off last year’s performance. The pieces are in the system for the Islanders to be an elite team. John Tavares is the face of the franchise and finished second in the NHL in scoring last season, while Kyle Okposo and Ryan Strome provide secondary scoring. The team’s defense is solidified by Johnny Boychuk, and Jaroslav Halak provides stable goaltending for the first time since Rick DiPietro. Read more»

As the New York Islanders get set to move to Brooklyn next season, the organization has renewed confidence heading to the 2015-2016 season after making the playoffs last season. The roster has accumulated both high end talent and depth and the system is flush with talent. The Islanders will contend in a competitive division that saw the Columbus Blue Jackets, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Washington Capitals all make major offseason acquisitions. The Islanders should be right in the thick of things in what will be an intriguing race to watch. Read more»
