Panthers to host 2015 draft

NEW YORK -- The Florida Panthers will host the 2015 NHL Draft at the BB&T Center.

It will be the second time the Panthers and Broward County have hosted the annual event. The 2001 draft was also held in Florida.

"On behalf of the entire Florida Panthers organization we are thrilled and honoured to welcome the NHL Draft back to the BB&T Center and Broward County," Panthers president and CEO Michael R. Yormark said in a statement. "The 2015 NHL Draft will be a spectacular event for this community on a number of levels, bringing significant economic impact and notoriety to Broward County while also giving our fans a glimpse of the future stars of the National Hockey League.

"I'd like to sincerely thank our local hoteliers, local businesses and the CVB for working closely with the NHL to make this incredible event a reality."

The 2014 NHL Draft will be hosted by the Philadelphia Flyers and held June 27-28 at the Wells Fargo Center. The 2015 draft will be held June 26-27.

 

Polak returns to Blues lineup

ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues have activated defenceman Roman Polak from the injured list and placed forward Maxim Lapierre on the list with a lower-body injury.

The Blues also recalled forward Dmitrij Jaskin from Chicago of the AHL in time for Tuesday night's game against Phoenix.

Polak missed 10 games with a lower-body injury. In 34 games, he has three goals, four assists and 24 penalty minutes.

Lapierre has six goals and three assists in 39 games. The 20-year-old Jaskin has played in four games and scored his first career goal Dec. 28 against the Blackhawks.

 

Red Wings recall Jurco

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings have recalled right-winger Tomas Jurco from the Grand Rapids Griffins of the AHL.

Jurco has played in seven games with the Red Wings this season, scoring two goals with one assist.

Jurco has appeared in 32 games with Grand Rapids and has a team-best 32 points. Last season, he had 28 points in 74 regular-season games with the Griffins and helped them win the Calder Cup.

Jurco was taken by Detroit in the second round of the 2011 draft.

Harding's condition improving

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding has been making progress toward a return to playing.

Harding took part in the team skate before the Wild hosted Ottawa on Tuesday. He said the plan is for him to participate in practice today.

Harding has not played since Dec. 31, due to his recovery from an adjustment to his multiple sclerosis treatment.

There's no timetable yet for his next game in the net.

Harding leads the NHL with a 1.66 goals-against average.

Niklas Backstrom and Darcy Kuemper have played in his place. Kuemper was slated for his second straight start on Tuesday against the Senators after posting a shutout on Sunday at Nashville.
