Well the NHL regular season kicks off today! As promised, I'll be tracking positions played for every NHL game this season, including injuries and scratches. You can follow along and more specifically, use this tool as a guide for recommending position changes to your WHL players.

Wed, June 12, 2013
Today in the WHL:
The Sparrows seemed to be on their way to a win and series lead, after two goals by Antoine Vermette, but things changed in the middle of the third period. Two quick goals, by Marek Svatos and Zach Parise, tied the game at 2 goals apiece and forced overtime. Brian Gionta completed the Rink Rats' comeback by deflecting defenseman Kyle Quincey's point shot behind Jean-Sebastien Giguere at 16:57 for the win. Gionta leads the WHL with 15 goals in 18 games in the playoffs, while Quincey is the leading assist getter with 17. Game 4 is set for Thursday night, again in Minnesota.

Mon, June 10, 2013
Today in the WHL:
It was a close game in Chicoutimi, another one goal game, but this time the Sparrows came out on top, with a 4-3 win to even the series at 1-1. Pascal Dupuis, for Chicoutimi, and Ilya Kovalchuk for Minnesota, scored a goal and added an assist. Alexei Ponikarovsky assisted on 2 goals, including the game winner by rookie Guillaume Desbiens. Both Dupuis and Ponikarovsky now have 17 points in the playoffs, but are still 2 points behind defenseman Stephane Robidas as the Sparrows leading scorer. Zach Parise, back after missing 4 games (3 due to injury and 1 due to visa problems), added a 15th assist this postseason and he still leads the WHL in scoring with 28 points. The series moves to Minnesota for games 3 and 4.

Wed, June 5, 2013
Today in the WHL:
With a 2-2 tie and looking like the game is heading to overtime, defenseman Francois Beauchemin scores with 31 seconds left to the third period, and the Sparrows beat the Demons 3-2 to advance to the Finals and face the Rink Rats. Stephane Robidas assisted on all 3 Chicoutimi goals, with the other 2 goals scored by Pascal Dupuis. Robidas leads the Sparrows in playoffs scoring with 17 points (5 goals and 12 assists), and is second (tied) only to Rocky Mountain's Christian Ehrhoff (18 points) in the WHL for defenseman scoring. After failing to make the Playoffs in WHL12, the Sparrows were then eliminated by the IceDogs the following three years (First round in WHL13, Second round in WHL14, and First round in WHL15), and then by the Stallions in WHL16 (Semi-Finals) and WHL17 (First round) before finally making it to the Finals this year.

Mon, June 3, 2013
Today in the WHL:
Sparrows get a team effort, with goals coming from 6 different players and points from 13 different players, as they beat the Demons 6-5 to tie the series 3-3 and force a game 7. Mike Richards scores 2 goals for the Demons, after failing to find the back of the net for the first 15 playoffs games. Demons have scored a whopping 11 goals on the powerplay in this series, for a 34.4 percentage, and this has to be a big factor why they've been able to take the Sparrows to 7 games.
Rink Rats shut down the Express, limiting them to a single goal by Ryan Kesler, and they defeat them 5-1, and ending their Cyber Cup hopes for this year. Rookie Jason Zucker continues to make the best of his opportunity filling in for Zach Parise, scoring another goal and adding 2 assists and being named the first star of the game. Defenseman Tom Gilbert sets up 2 goals, and improves his +/- to +16, 3rd best in the WHL behind teammates Zach Parise (+22) and Kevin Shattenkirk (+17). Rink Rats move on to the Finals, and await the result of the Wales game 7 to find out whether they'll be travelling to Chicoutimi to face the Sparrows, or hosting the Demons at home in Minnesota.

Fri, May 31, 2013
Today in the WHL:
Once again the Demons' offense is too much for the Sparrows to handle, and they beat the Sparrows 6-4. Scott Hartnell scores 2 goals, and Jason Pominville and Mike Green each contribute 3 assistsfor the Demons, and Antoine Vermette scores 1 goal and adds 2 assist for the Sparrows.

The Express refuse to bow down, and continue their Cinderella run in the WHL18 Playoffs, beating the Rink Rats 5-4 in overtime. Defenseman Brooks Orpik was the winning goal scorer at 17:42 of the overtime period, and was named first start of the game. Rink Rats rookie Jason Zucker scored his 1st career playoffs goal, in his second game after being called up to fill in for injured Zach Parise. Patrick Marleau scored his 14th goal of the postseason for the Express, in 14 games, and currently leads thw WHL tied with Minnesota's Brian Gionta in that category. Rink Rats still lead the Series 3-2, as the series moves to Banff, Alberta for game 6.

Thu, May 30, 2013
Yesterday in the WHL:
After losing 2 players to injury in game 4, the Demons get back to what they do best: their offense, and score 7 goals on Jean-Sebastien Giguere to win the game 7-5. Joe Thornton led the way with 1 goal and 2 assists, while defenseman Jack Johnson got 3 assists. For the Sparrows, Erik Christensen also got 1 goal and 2 assists, and Pascal Dupuis scored 2 late 3rd period goals when the score was 7-3 but it wasn't enough. Dupuis' goals were only his 3rd and 4th in 13 games, after he scored 62 in 84 games in the regular season. Thornton leads the Demons with 21 points. The series is now tied 2-2 and moving back to Chicoutimi for game 5 Thursday night.
Patrick Marleau scores 2 goals and adds 1 assist, and the Express stay alive with a 4-3 win over the Rink Rats.

Mon, May 27, 2013
Today in the WHL:
Alexei Ponikarovsky scores 2 goals, his 5th and 6th of the playoffs, to lead the Sparrows to a 4-2 win over the Demons. Ponikarovsky's linemates Antoine Vermette and Pascal Dupuis also got 2 points each, and Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 26 shots for the win. Giguere has the 2nd best gaa in the playoffs so far at 2.83, only behind James Howard's 2.50. It was a tough loss for the Demons, not only to see the Sparrows take a 2-1 series lead in front of their fans in New York, but they also lost their goaltender Ryan Miller for possibly a couple games, and winger Jay Rosehill is out indefinitely with an undisclosed lower body injury.
In the other Semi-Finals game, the Rink Rats once again dominated the Express and beat them 7-3, to take a commanding 3-0 series lead. Defenseman Tom Gilbert scored his 4th and 5th goals of the playoffs, and was named the first star of the game. Matt Duchene scored 1 goal and added 1 assist, as his line with Tyler Ennis and Marek Svatos went +4 on the night. The bad news for Minnesota though was that WHL playoffs leading scorer Zach Parise took a puck to the face when Chris Pronger's shot deflected on Brian Gionta's stick in the third period. He left the game and did not return. No word yet on his status.

Fri, May 24, 2013
Today in the WHL:
The Sparrows' first line finally shows up, combining for 7 points to lead the Sparrows to a convincing 7-3 win over the Demons.

Scott Hartnell was the best on the Demons squad with 1 goal and 1 assist. Robidas still leads the Sparrows in playoffs scoring with 11 points, and is ranked 5th in defenseman scoring.

Defenseman Mike Green gets an assist on both Pominville goals, and Erik Christensen gets an assist on both Sparrows goals, scored by Steve Sullivan and Mike Mottau.

Fri, May 17, 2013
Today in the WHL:
Martin St.Louis scores 2 goals and adds 1 assist, to keep the Lunatics alive by defeating the Demons 7-4. Joe Thornton scores 5th and 6th of the playoffs for the Demons, and leads them in scoring with 14 points in 9 games. Roberto Luongo stops 36 of 40 shots to earn his 6th win of the postseason. The Lunatics are still behind 3-2 in the series, with game 6 set for Sunday night in New York.
Up 3-1 in their series against the Cats, the Rink Rats were down 3-1 after the first period and it looked like we might be heading to a game 6 in that series as well. But Dan Bylsma's players went and scored 9 unanswered goals to easily seal the win 10-3 and eliminate the Cats. Rookie Gabriel Landeskog had a career night with 2 goals and 4 assists, after only getting 5 points total in the previous 8 games.

Today in the WHL:

After scoring 62 goals in the regular season, Pascal Dupuis has struggled finding the net in the playoffs; he finalle scored his first goal in 9 playoffs games. The Sparrows have got a lot more balanced scoring in the playoffs than in the regular season, with no player in the top 15 in scoring. Jean-Sebastien Giguere stopped 27 of 29 shots for the win. Chicoutimi eliminates Halifax in 5 games, and now awaits the winner of the Demons-Lunatics series.
Demons shoot 44 times on Lunatics goalie Roberto Luongo, scoring 7 goals, and defeating the Lunatics 7-2 to take a 3-1 series lead. Ryan Callahan scores 2 goals and adds an assist for New York, and defenseman Drew Doughty sets up 3 goals.

The Demons have scored 45 goals in 8 playoffs games, with 15 different players scoring goals, but one player that has disappointed and failed to find the back in the net is Mike Richards. The big center has only managed 6 assists, and will definitely need to start contributing more offense if the Demons move on to meet the Sparrows in the Semi-Finals.
Rink Rats resume their domination after a slipup in the last game, and easily defeat the Cats 7-1 to take a 3-1 lead in the series. David Krejci, Ilya Kovalchuk and Matt Gilroy all get 1 goal and 1 assist for Minnesota, with goaltender James Howard stopping 32 shots. Howard is second in the WHL behind Rocky Mountain's Alexandre Auld for both gaa and save percentage in the postseason.
