NHL News and Rumors

Brad Ratgen posts on HockeyBuzz.com that Zach Parise is already paying dividends for the Minnesota Wild.  It seems that some Minnesota Wild fans are very impressed with Parise's efforts in the first two NHL regular season games with the Wild.  Reminiscent of what people saw from him with New Jersey in the 2011-12 playoff run to the Cup.  That's the kind of play you'll see from Parise night in and night out.

The 29th overall pick in last year's NHL draft, Stefan Matteau, who made his debut with the New Jersey Devils this season at 18 years old, thought that his NHL debut was "better than he dreamed".  It should be the start of a very long NHL career for the youngster and son of NHL veteran Stephane Matteau. 

Evgeni Malkin, who is signed by Pittsburgh through the 2013-14 NHL season, according to capgeek.com, is off to a strong start.  The Russian Center, whowon the Hart Trophy in 2011-12, has four points in two games against the Flyers and Rangers.

According to Dan Rosen on Twitter, Islanders head coach Jack Capuano still needs to be cleared by doctors, but he intends to coach in the Isles next tilt. 

Roberto Luongo, who has been rumored to be on the trading block for months, played in net for the Canucks last night, taking them into an overtime shootout with the Oilers.  The Canucks ended up on the losing side of that shootout, after Luongo stopped 30 of 32 shots for a .938 save percentage.

According to Damian Cristodero on Twitter (@LightningTimes):
The left winger was the 68th overall pick by the Oilers in the 2003 NHL draft.  Although he was with the Florida Panthers AHL affiliate, Jacques last played with the Anaheim Ducks in the NHL.
