Senators in no rush to name new captain

The Ottawa Senators have an opening for the team captaincy, but coach Paul MacLean said there's no rush to fill it.

Talking with reporters in Ottawa on Wednesday on the first day of training camp, MacLean said "we're not making a decision" on the new captain at this time.

"I want to do it at the right time," MacLean said. "I want to make sure I do it at the right time."

Daniel Alfredsson had been captain since the start of the 1999-2000 season, but that ended when he signed with the Detroit Red Wings in July.

Brodeur having too much fun to talk retirement

Martin Brodeur is 41 and entering the final season of his contract, but the New Jersey Devils goaltender is not ready to discuss retirement.

"I'm just going to play this year," Brodeur told reporters at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J., as the team opened training camp Wednesday. "I'm not going to comment on, 'Yes, I will,' or 'Yes, I won't [retire]'. So, you can tell [media] around the League they don't have to ask that question. I'm not going to tell anybody if I'm going to retire or not until I make a decision of coming back or not."

Instead of worrying about the future, Brodeur said he's concentrating on the present, and that includes helping his new teammate and goaltending partner, Cory Schneider, adjust to his new environment.

"For me, it's a fun opportunity to really help him out and it's going to help me out at the same time in playing games and doing these things with him," he said.

Devils' Jagr wants to continue playing

Jaromir Jagr said he isn’t ready to retire after the 2013-14 season. Although the New Jersey Devils' forward said Wednesday that, "it might be my last year," he said he prefers to keep playing, repeating that he will return to the Czech Republic after he leaves the NHL. Jagr said he also would like to play in the 2014 Olympics, but only if he and the coaches believe he can help the Czech team.

“I said it might be my last season [in the NHL],” Jagr said. “It depends how I’m going to play. I don’t want to be somewhere if I’m not going to be good or help. Of course, I’m going to play in the Czech league. I have to do it.”

Miller happy to be still be in Buffalo

After a summer of speculation and rumors, Ryan Miller said Wednesday he's happy to remain part of the Buffalo Sabres.

"Darcy [Regier, general manager] has to build a team and maybe he feels that he wants me here," Miller told reporters Wednesday in Buffalo. "I'm happy to be here obviously. I have a great connection with the city. I've enjoyed my time here. I'm just looking forward to getting started and do it all over again."

Miller went 17-17-5 in 40 games last season, snapping a seven-season stretch of at least 30 wins, and his 2.81 goals-against average was the highest of his career. Last season also marked the second straight season and fourth time in the last six the Sabres had missed the postseason.

"Last year didn't go the way we all were thinking," he said. "The last few years have been kind of frustrating, all culminating with [last season. I've been here a while and people are going to start focusing their attention on me, whether I should still be in town or not I guess. It all becomes about the same every year. You have to go out and prove yourself anyway. This falls in line with that. People expect me to have to go out and prove something but I would argue I have to do that every year as a goaltender for an NHL team. You have to go out and perform and play. You're not going to get any free rides. It's the same preparation for me."

Blackhawks' Brookbank honored as small-town hero

A small town welcomed a big visitor Thursday.

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Sheldon Brookbank led a parade in his hometown of Lanigan, Saskatchewan during his time with the Stanley Cup.

"It really means a lot to know that there's people pulling for you back home and they've always been there," Brookbank told CJME Radio. "I can't say enough about this town, I just love it here."

Bickell gets key to city on day with Stanley Cup

Chicago Blackhawks forward Bryan Bickell received the key to the city of Orono, Ontario, his hometown, during his day with the Stanley Cup on Tuesday. Bickell brought the Cup to Orono when the Blackhawks last won the Cup in 2010. But because the 6-foot-4 forward figured so prominently in Chicago's 2013 run, this visit by the Cup was extra special.

Bickell posed for photos in front of his town's welcoming sign, which now lists him as a Stanley Cup champion. He also took the trophy fishing near Peterborough, Ontario.

"Unfortunately, we didn't catch a lot of fish. But this is part one, so we're going to make part two another day," Bickell said. "It's nice to have Stanley out on the boat and be out there with it."
