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."

Crawford adds contract extension to day with Cup

It has been such a great summer for Corey Crawford that he could hardly be blamed if he didn't want it to end.

Crawford began the day he earned celebrating with the Stanley Cup in his hometown by agreeing to a six-year contract extension Monday with the Chicago Blackhawks. The deal, which begins when his current pact expires after the 2013-14 season, is reportedly worth $36 million.

Keith brings Cup back to Penticton

For the second time in 36 months, Duncan Keith brought the Stanley Cup back to Penticton, B.C.

The Chicago Blackhawks defenseman shared part of his day with the Cup with the community, just as he did during the summer of 2010 after he and his teammates ended a 49-year championship drought.

He spent part of his day smiling his way through hundreds of photos with local fans.

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."

Nabokov aims for third trip to Olympics with Russia

Evgeni Nabokov struggled while playing goal for Russia in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, so he is glad to have been one of five netminders invited to Russia Olympic orientation camp.

But Nabokov, who re-signed with the New York Islanders this summer, said the 2014 Sochi Olympics in February aren't the only thing on his mind as he prepares for the season.

"Everyone understands that this is the year of the Olympics, and the Games are very important for the country," the 38-year-old said this week in an interview with R-Sport. "However, you should understand that playing for our own club is no less important. Moreover, one supplements the other here: If you play badly for the club, you will not get to the Olympics.

"Therefore, each of us thinks about playing the first club game and later we will think about the second game, and then, in February, we will think about the Olympics. Now we have to prove to the coaches that we deserve to play on the national team, and I can only do this with the help of [playing well] with the Islanders. Believe me, I will not be thinking 24/7 about the Olympics."

Blackhawks' Kane brings Cup back to Buffalo

A magical summer for Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane ended on a high note when the 2013 Conn Smythe Trophy winner enjoyed his day with the Stanley Cup on Saturday in his hometown of Buffalo.

As he did when he had the Cup in Buffalo in 2010, Kane took the iconic trophy to Niagara Falls, where he posed for photos with friends and family. The trip this year included the Conn Smythe Trophy, which Kane was given as MVP of the Stanley Cup Playoffs after scoring nine goals and 19 points in 23 games.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.

— Penguins GM Jim Rutherford on forward Brandon Sutter
