KEVIN FIALA IS MONEY in the bank. And not just any bank. When the Los Angeles Kings agreed to a seven-year, $55-million contract with Fiala, the money couldn’t have been more secure if they had placed it in a Swiss bank account. In a way, they did. Last year, Fiala became just the sixth Swiss-born player to appear in an NHL All-Star Game. “Exciting for the L.A. Kings,” he said, “and for Switzerland.” In June 2022, with the Kings in need of a dynamic scorer with playmaking ability, they invested heavily in the Swiss import market. Prospect Brock Faber and a 2022 first-round pick were shipped to Minnesota for Fiala. The same day, the Kings locked up the left winger with a long-term deal. “Kevin has game-breaking ability,” said Kings GM Rob…

Filip Gustavsson


FOR FILIP Gustavsson, life is good in the State of Hockey. The 25-year-old is armed with a new three-year contract after narrowly avoiding a summer arbitration hearing.

With the Wild last year, he gained momentum as the season wore on. After the all-star break, he started 19 of Minnesota’s final 34 games, posting a 1.95 GAA and…



As offense continues to get supercharged, some teams have turned the attacking zone into a shooting gallery – meaning goalies are under siege. Among active keepers with at least 100 NHL games, these are the leaders in saves per game



WHEN QUENTIN MILLER earned a spot on the Quebec Remparts last year, the perspective of what he was about to gain as both a player and a person didn’t go unnoticed. “I was pretty lucky to join a team with so much experience and talent,” Miller said. “I had so much to learn and was grateful to be able to do that with the group I had around me. I had a pretty good season but was happy for the support I had.” It was a “pretty good” season, all right. The Remparts captured the QMJHL regular-season title, then the inaugural Gilles-Courteau Trophy – the city’s first ‘Q’ playoff title in 47 years. To cap it all off, the star-studded squad flew out to Kamloops, B.C., and skated away with the…
