Top pick Ehlers iffy for today's game vs. Canucks

The Jets meet the Vancouver Canucks at 4 p.m. and Ehlers will be a late decision because he tweaked his groin late in Friday's tournament opener against Calgary.

In two meetings last season, the Blackhawks earned 3 out of four points against the Ducks one in a 3-2 shootout loss in Chicago, and two in a 2-0 shutout win in Anaheim.

Gallagher: Burrows puts last season behind him, wants to get back to playoffs

It's not often a guy gets hurt in the first game of the season and in his last game at the world championships, but that's what the likable Vancouver winger went through - so you would have to think he's due for a different set of breaks.

YoungStars Non-Roster Invites

Horvat, Gaunce, Virtanen, McCann, and Shinkaruk are all going to be in Penticton this week, but who are these other guys? The YoungStars tournament is unofficial opening ceremony of the NHL season, and it's this week ! This tournament is about taking a long look at our brightest future stars while trying to find the next diamond in the rough by inviting a whack of undrafted free agents as well as players who weren't taken in the 2014 draft but are eligible for the 2015 draft. This year the Canucks come into this event with as many as 4 open spots of their available 50 contract maximum.
