Kings' Andy Andreoff makes presence felt in first NHL game

The Los Angeles Kings had only few roster spots open coming into training camp this season. Center Andy Andreoff got one, and he let everyone know it in the first seconds of his first NHL shift Tuesday night. Andreoff had barely been on the ice for more than few moments when he dropped the gloves with Edmonton center Matt Hendricks. It might have been one of the most polite fights...

Hockey shot-protection gear struggles to secure acceptance among NHL players

Matt Hendricks pointed to the interior of his right foot, where he had once been struck by a puck that left him with a broken bone, and declared: “two screws.” There have been other cracks caused by unyielding pucks, continued the Edmonton Oilers gritty winger during a discussion about exterior shot protection.

Matt Hendricks joins Nail Yakupov in Oilers medical room

The Oilers could very well end up reeling up two forwards from the Oklahoma City Barons with both Nail Yakupov and Matt Hendricks now on the limp. Hendricks was hurt blocking a Shea Weber shot while Yakupov didn’t make it out after the pre-game warm-up because of an ankle that’s been bothering him. “He hung in there as long as he could but it just got to a point where that...

Hendricks key cog in Oilers’ resurgence

There’s nothing quiet about his game, which pretty much sums up Matt Hendricks’ presence in the Edmonton Oilers locker-room. Since arriving in January, in the trade that sent goaltender Devan Dubnyk to the Nashville Predators, the veteran has become entrenched in the room and on the ice.

Oilers forward Matt Hendricks's value defies numbers, along with fellow grinders Gordon and Gazdic

You don’t look up Matt Hendricks’s goals and assists. If anything, you look down for them. He’s 13 names deep in the Oilers scoring race with seven points in 64 games, tied with Philip Larsen, who spent most of the year alternating between sick bay and the AHL. From that perspective, his contributions seem rather insignificant … until you have to go into a corner with...

His is a game of persistence, which is certainly something the Edmonton Oilers can use.
