AUGSBURG, Germany — The last time Mark Arcobello, Sean Backman, Broc Little and Brian O’Neill were teammates on the ice, they were bright-eyed students at Yale. College life was fun. The hockey team was good. Their metabolisms were fast.
ST. PAUL, Minn. — John Hayden left college last spring and promptly landed on a line with Jonathan Toews, so his head isn’t exactly spinning now that he’s playing with established veterans Patrick Sharp and Artem Anisimov.
BRIGHTON, Mass – It's been a few different stints with a few different NHL teams for 25-year-old Kenny Agostino, so he knows the drill at this point in his pro hockey career. The Bruins signed Agostino as a free agent on July 1 after he led the AHL in scoring last season, and they gave him a one-way contract as a show of proof that he'd get his chances at the NHL level.
Making the roster after training camp was the first step to John Hayden’s journey of the 2017-18 season as a Blackhawk. He proved himself worthy in training camp and during the preseason through his speed and the physicality that he brings to the ice. He is the first strong enforcer the Hawks have seen in a while, but is that what they need right now?
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Four former Yale All-American forwards currently playing professionally in Europe have been selected to the U.S. National Team for next month's Deutschland Cup.

Chace Head Coach, will be with their college coach in Germany for the competition that helps determine who will be on the U.S. Olympic Team roster for February's Winter Games in South Korea.

VOORHEES, N.J. — As the Flyers tee it up Tuesday during their annual tournament at Trump National Golf Club in Pine Hill, New Jersey, Alex Lyon may be the rare athlete who’s more interested in Trump’s plans for diplomacy than the layout of his golf courses.
The West Bloomfield, Michigan native just completed his first professional season as a member of the Missouri Mavericks where he posted a pair of goals with 14 assists. Obuchowski also picked up 31 penalty minutes over 69 contests.
Around this time last year, there was concern that John Hayden was going to go the Kevin Hayes route and never sign with the Blackhawks after the organization drafted him. Chicago offered him a contract in 2016, but Hayden opted to return for his senior season at Yale. After serving as team captain for the Bulldogs in the 2016-17 season, Hayden signed a two-year entry-level deal with the Hawks and made a solid impression in his NHL debut.
