The latest on Jarome Iginla, P.K. Subban, Blake Wheeler, Cody Hodgson, Andy Sutton, Joey Crabb and Nikita Filatov.
CALGARY SUN: It’s no coincidence the Flames won three straight games last week, while team captain Jarome Iginla was NHL star of the week with four goals and two assists.
MONTREAL GAZETTE: Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban explains the reason his offensive numbers are down this season is he’s put more emphasis on the defensive game, earning praise from head coach Jacques Martin.
WINNIPEG SUN: Jets forward Blake Wheeler is playing a more physical style this season.
VANCOUVER PROVINCE: Cody Hodgson has been cleared to play against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
EDMONTON SUN: Oilers defenseman Andy Sutton, suspended for eight games for a high hit on Carolina’s Alexei Ponikarovsky, isn’t happy with the current NHL disciplinary system.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Sutton is a repeat offender, and the actions which led to his latest suspension were his own fault. Had he adjusted his playing style, he wouldn’t be suspended. Sutton has no one to blame but himself for his situation.
TORONTO SUN: Leafs forward Joey Crabb is hoping to stick with the club as a character forward.
OTTAWA SUN: The Senators will retain the NHL rights to Nikita Filatov, who they assigned to the KHL for the remainder of the season.
