The forward didn’t have much to work with in Kootenay, but his work ethic has gotten him noticed. The Kootenay ICE finished last in the overall standings in the WHL in two out of the last four seasons, and did not make the playoffs in any of those years. They spent a lot of that time getting shelled by other much stronger organizations. It wasn’t the best environment to foster the growth of a top prospect, but Peyton Krebs was the flower that emerged out of the barren land to show itself to the world. With great resilience, an unwavering work ethic, and a burning desire to win despite the circumstances, Krebs lined up at the dot for the opening faceoff every game, ready to compete.

Everything you need to know about today’s action. Group A Preliminary Games 10:15 AM ET: Slovakia (1-0-0-3, 3 pts) vs France (0-0-1-3, 1 pt) What was a tremendous start for the host Slovaks - a win against the United States - has turned into a huge disappointment. Last minute losses to Canada and Germany have cost them a chance at the playoff round, and now are left to play out the stretch. France took Denmark to a shootout and that may be enough to keep them from relegation but it may come down to their game against Great Britain. The game will be shown on TSN 3 and RDS in Canada and NHL Network in the USA. 2:15 PM ET: Finland (3-0-1-0, 10 pts) vs Great

If strong skating, puck-moving, and solid defence aren’t enough to draw attention, leadership skills well beyond his years should be. Victor Söderström caught Magnus Sundquist off guard this season, the Brynäs head coach admitted to Eyes On The Prize after a game against Växjö. “I didn’t have anything to do one night in Gävle when I just had been appointed as a coach,” Sundquist explained. “I went to catch a game with the U20s. I had heard about Victor as a talent, but not anything else. Then, when saw Victor play, I said to myself, ‘He is too good to play with the U20’s, he should play in the senior team.’ “His transition from the junior to professional level was smooth. You would expect a dip in play, but that never happened. That is all down to the hockey I

Laval Rocket season review: An off year for Charlie Lindgren

It was an up-and-down season for the goaltender. At 25 years old, Charlie Lindgren is an intriguing goaltender prospect. In the Montreal system since the end of 2016, he has been solid in the NHL but is struggling in the AHL. For a while, Lindgren was seen as a potential starter in the NHL. Most pictured him like a Cam Talbot — a backup that would do well behind a starter, signed long term who could be used as a trading chip to upgrade another position. Turns out, as much as Lindgren shone during his time in the NHL, his struggles in the AHL makes him a curious case. The question now is, which Lindgren is the real one? As things stand right no
