Blues Drafted Hidden Gem in Neighbours

The 2020 NHL Draft took place just over one year ago, on October 6 and 7, 2020, unusually late due to the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequently adjusted season schedules. On that night, the St. Louis Blues selected a big forward from the Edmonton Oil Kings, Jake Neighbours, with the 26th pick. Reviews of the pick were mixed, but most believed the team reached. The Hockey Writers’ head scout, Larry Fisher, ranked Neighbours 51st in his final predraft top 500 rankings.

NHL On Tap: Ovechkin looks to stay hot when Capitals host Lightning

Welcome to NHL On Tap. Three NHL.com writers will share what they are most looking forward to on each day. Today, their choices from 14 games on Saturday. The Washington Capitals and Tampa Bay Lightning will have some of the top offensive players in the NHL on display when they meet Saturday (7 p.m. ET; NBCSWA, BSSUN, ESPN+, NHL LIVE). Topping that list is Alex Ovechkin, who looks to continue his climb up the all-time NHL goals list. The Capitals captain scored two goals in a 5-1 win against the New York Rangers on Wednesday to move past Marcel Dionne for fifth place all-time with 732, nine behind Brett Hull (741) in fourth place. And Ovechkin, who also had two assists Wednesday, has good history against the Lightning with 48 goals in 72 games, tied for the most he's scored against any opponent (48 against the Winnipeg Jets/Atlanta Thrashers). But don't forget the Lightning's superstar scorers, including forward Steve Stamkos (two goals, three assists) and defenseman Victor Hedman (five assists), each of whom has scored five points and is tied for the NHL scoring lead with Anze Kopitar of the Los Angeles Kings. Expect offense to take center stage Saturday; the teams have combined to score at least seven goals five times in their past six games. -- Adam Kimelman, deputy managing editor.

What the Capitals believe they are getting in Dennis Cholowski

The Capitals made a surprise move on Thursday claiming defenseman Dennis Cholowski off waivers from the Seattle Kraken. Prior to the season, it looked like Washington had too many left defensemen. Now, however, 2018 first-round draft pick Alex Alexeyev looks a like he's still a year away from being NHL ready, Michal Kempny was reassigned to the AHL's Hershey Bears after a lackluster preseason and veteran Matt Irwin looks like a purely depth piece.

HGD 2: Looking to bounce back against Tucson after shutout loss (7:00 p.m. MT, AHL TV)

Dustin Wolf was spectacular for the Stockton Heat in their season-opening game against the Tucson Roadrunners on Friday, stopping 34 of the 35 shots directed his way. Unfortunately for Wolf, the only shot he didn’t stop was the last one he faced. Tucson defenceman Vladislav Kolaychonok beat Wolf at the 1:56 mark of overtime for the game’s only goal, securing his team a 1-0 win. At the other end, Roadrunners goaltender Ivan Prosvetov recorded a 29-save shutout.
