The Business of Hockey

Matt Duchene remembers feeling like he was in way over his head. Having just completed his third NHL season and not yet 22 years old, Duchene could see the ominous labour clouds as the league and its players' association rolled towards a lockout that would eventually wipe out a large chunk of the 2012-13 campaign. "I had no idea what was going on," the Nashville Predators centre recalled. "This time around, I'm smarter that way." The NHL and the NHLPA both elected not to re-open the current collective bargaining agreement last month, meaning there will be labour peace until at least September 2022. But unlike Duchene seven years ago, a number of young NHLers are taking a keen interest in this round of talks and an eventual deal with owners that will go a long way in shaping their careers. Former Columbus Blue Jackets center Matt Duchene (Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports) "I'm still learning," Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews said. "You get more and...

New York Rangers

NEW YORK — Jack Hughes and Kaapo Kakko were the clear favourites all along to be the top two picks in this year's NHL draft. So far, the 18-year-olds have struggled to generate a lot of offence in the opening weeks of the season. Kakko, selected second by the New York Rangers after New Jersey took Hughes at No. 1, broke through with his first NHL goal on Saturday. Hughes nearly got his first on Monday. Now, the two youngsters will get a close-up look at each other on Thursday night when the Rangers visit the Devils for the metropolitan-area teams' first matchup of the season. Despite Hughes' struggles getting on the scoresheet, Devils coach John Hynes likes the way the teenager is learning and working on improving his game. "He's really understanding how hard you need to compete in this game and how much puck battles matter, attention to detail when you don't have the puck, and he's making strides in those areas," Hynes said. "He's just a step away from really creating...
