Bernier in net as Maple Leafs face Avalanche

It may be just one week into the 2013-14 NHL season, but there is palpable buzz in Toronto as the Colorado Avalanche come to town to face off against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Air Canada Centre. Both teams come into the game undefeated and Toronto will be looking to build on a hot start that has seen the team win its first three games.

While Toronto's three wins have all come in close games, Colorado has won its two games by a combined score of 9-2 and has yet to trail this season.

Kings sign Sabourin to entry-level contract

The Los Angeles Kings on Monday signed forward Scott Sabourin to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The undrafted 21-year-old had 30 goals and 20 assists with the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League last season. He then had one assist in five regular-season games with the Manchester Monarchs, the Kings' American Hockey League team and got into three games in the Calder Cup playoffs.

Sabourin had a minus-1 rating and two penalty minutes in one AHL game with Manchester this season.

Devils go Brodeur on Monday, Schneider vs. Canucks

New Jersey Devils coach Pete DeBoer confirmed his goalie rotation for the next two games. Martin Brodeur will start Monday against the Edmonton Oilers and Cory Schneider will face his former team, the Vancouver Canucks, on Tuesday.

"When we got Cory, and then I got the schedule, it became a no-brainer," DeBoer told reporters while the Devils took part in an optional skate in preparation for Monday's game in Edmonton. "I didn't have to spend a lot of time on it. With the back-to-back situation the plan was to split them on back-to-backs, especially early in the season anyway. It just made sense that those would be how we would rotate them in the two games.

"You talk to any player. They want to play against their old team. There is a comfort level there with the personnel on the other side, with the arena, with the environment. And there is obviously motivation there anytime you leave a team, regardless of the circumstances, to go back and play against them. He's no different than any other player."

Rangers assign Miller to Hartford

With captain Ryan Callahan expected to return to the lineup Monday night against the Los Angeles Kings, the New York Rangers have sent forward J.T. Miller to their American Hockey League affiliate in Hartford.

The Rangers' first-round pick (No. 15) in the 2011 draft, Miller registered one shot and two penalty minutes in New York's season-opening 4-1 road loss to the Phoenix Coyotes Thursday night. The 20-year-old Ohio native had an eventful 2012-13 season. He made his NHL debut with the Rangers, posting two goals and two assists in 26 games, while also collecting nine points in seven games to lead Team USA to gold at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship.

In his first home game with the Rangers on Feb. 7, Miller wowed the Madison Square Garden crowd with two goals. But he has failed to score since that game.

Ducks' Selanne to sit out Saturday, play Sunday

Anaheim Ducks forward Teemu Selanne will sit out Saturday's game against the Minnesota Wild, coach Bruce Boudreau said Friday. Selanne will play the following night against the Winnipeg Jets, with whom he began his NHL career in 1992-93 by scoring a career-high 76 goals.

"Winnipeg might be a pretty big night for him," Boudreau said. "They love him there and rightfully so. They should love him."

Tyutin out for Blue Jackets' opener

Columbus Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards told reporters following the team's morning skate Friday that veteran defenseman Fedor Tyutin would not be available for the team's season opener at home against the Calgary Flames on Friday.

Tyutin has been out since sustaining a lower-body injury during practice Wednesday. David Savard will fill Tyutin's spot in the lineup and will skate alongside Nikita Nikitin.

Richards said the choice for Tyutin's replacement ultimately came down to Savard or Tim Erixon, the 22-year-old acquired last season from the New York Rangers in the trade that sent Rick Nash to New York.

In the end, Savard won out.

Capitals claim Urbom on waivers

The Washington Capitals on Thursday claimed defenseman Alexander Urbom off waivers from the New Jersey Devils.

Urbom, 22, played one game for the Devils last season, and had eight assists in 68 games with the club's American Hockey League affiliate, the Albany Devils.

A 2009 third-round pick (No. 73), Urbom had two goals in 14 games with the Devils, spread across the past three seasons.

Ducks scratch Penner against Avalanche

Dustin Penner and the Anaheim Ducks were reunited this past summer, but Penner will not be in the lineup when the team opens its 2013-13 season Wednesday night against the Colorado Avalanche in Denver.

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau confirmed following Wednesday's morning skate that Penner is a healthy scratch. Penner was skating with coaches and extra players following practice, a good indicator that he's out of the lineup. It was last week when Boudreau called Penner's camp "mediocre," but the coach cited a strong camp from Patrick Maroon, expected to play left wing alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, as part of his reasoning behind the decision.

Sabres' Foligno to miss opener vs. Red Wings

Buffalo Sabres coach Ron Rolston revealed Tuesday that promising young winger Marcus Foligno will not be suiting up for the team's season opener Wednesday night in Detroit against the Red Wings (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN). He also added that the 22-year-old was "not for sure" to play in the team's back-to-back games this weekend, Friday night at home against the Ottawa Senators and in Pittsburgh against the Penguins on Saturday.

Foligno has not played since sustaining an upper-body strain in the team's 5-3 preseason loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Sept. 22. Prior to the injury, Foligno had enjoyed a strong preseason for the Sabres, collecting three goals and four points in three games. He has been skating both alone and with the team, but has been sporting a red non-contact jersey.

"He's been skating and we've been trying him every morning," Rolston said. "He's been going out in the morning and trying it, but it's just not where it needs to be to put him in that situation where if he gets bumped [it could] set him back further."
