Tuesday Evening Post

  • Chris Peters of The United States of Hockey blog put together a preview of the USA Hockey World Junior Championship evaluation camp that kicks off this weekend. He notes that Rocco Grimaldi, who was initially invited to the camp but ultimately will not be able to participate, "is still a strong candidate to make the final roster." Brad Schlossman notes that Grimaldi's rehab is still on schedule, and Goon's World transcribed some of Florida Panther Director of Player Development Brian Skrudland's appearance on The Pipeline Show, during which he says Grimaldi is operating at about 90%. All things considered, it sounds like Grimaldi should be good to go come this fall. Incoming defenseman Jordan Schmaltz will be taking part in the camp, and The USOH blog is scheduled to have a full preview of all camp defensemen tomorrow.
  • The Hockey Writers took a look at how the Phoenix Coyotes are winning an unfair game, and head coach Dave Tippett has been a big part of the team's success over the past few years.
  • Pucks and Pitchforks says that after the New Jersey Devils lost Zach Parise to free agency, the time is now to sign Travis Zajac to a contract extension. Zajac has one year left on his current deal and is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next July unless he is extended beforehand.
  • Defending Big D is ranking the all-time top Dallas Stars, and former Sioux defenseman Craig Ludwig comes in at #20 on their list.
  • Bleacher Report says that Danny Kristo is one of the Montreal Canadiens' prospects who is destined for stardom.
  • In the video below Reading Royal head coach Larry Courville discusses the re-signing of former Sioux defenseman Derrick LaPoint and what he brings to the team:
