Bruins hoping to add Swedish star Soderberg

The Boston Bruins are close to making themselves a better team -- and it may not be through the trade market, although GM Peter Chiarelli has not ruled that out either.

Thursday night, Chiarelli confirmed to the Boston Herald a report by TSN that the team is close to bringing Swedish star Carl Soderberg to the club.

The Bruins have owned Soderberg's rights since 2007 when his rights were acquired in a trade with St. Louis that landed the Blues goaltender Hannu Toivonen.

Richards returned to that game, but he did not play against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday and will sit against the New York Islanders on Thursday.

Brodeur out through the weekend; Frazee recalled

New Jersey Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello told The (Bergen) Record that injured goaltender Martin Brodeur likely will miss at least the next three games because of lingering back soreness.

Brodeur has not skated since Feb. 24, when he pulled himself out of warmups prior to a home game against the Winnipeg Jets. Lamoriello said Brodeur has not had a setback in his recovery, but the injury is taking longer to heal than originally expected.

"It's the back," Lamoriello the newspaper. "It just hasn't come as quickly and we're going to make sure it's perfect."

Devils coach Peter DeBoer told the media Wednesday that he informed Lamoriello that Johan Hedberg would start against the Buffalo Sabres on Thursday.

Rangers claim Hamrlik off waivers

The New York Rangers claimed veteran defenseman Roman Hamrlik off waivers from the Washington Capitals on Wednesday.

The move comes one day after Rangers defenseman Marc Staal was hit in the right eye by a deflected slap shot during Tuesday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Staal was injured 5:45 into the third period when Kimmo Timonen's slap shot was deflected up and into his face. Staal immediately left the ice and did not return to the game. The Rangers have not provided an update on his condition as of yet, but one is reportedly expected to come Wednesday.

Hamrlik, 38, was placed on waivers by the Capitals on Tuesday. He was a healthy scratch in 16 of the team's 20 games. He is in the final year of a two-year contract that carries a $3.5 million salary cap hit. By claiming him, the Rangers pick up the remainder of Hamrlik's contract and cap hit.

Devils rule Brodeur out for Thursday

New Jersey Devils coach Peter DeBoer ruled goaltender Martin Brodeur out for Thursday's matchup against the Buffalo Sabres at Prudential Center due to lingering back soreness.

DeBoer told the media Wednesday that he informed general manager Lou Lamoriello that Johan Hedberg would start against the Sabres. He also told The (Newark) Star-Ledger that Brodeur, who was placed on injured reserve Feb. 26 (retroactive to Feb. 24), is feeling better but not close to returning.

DeBoer said Brodeur is no longer day-to-day.

"I wouldn't classify [Brodeur] as day to day," DeBoer said. "I mean, he's not going to play Thursday. I don't mean it's going to be a month. It's sometime in between day-to-day and a month."

Brodeur hasn't played since pulling himself from the lineup during warm-ups prior to a game against the Winnipeg Jets on Feb. 24.

Quote of the Day

You've got to focus on playing good hockey. When we do that we give ourselves a chance to win games. Win games and then maybe we''ll have a chance at the end. You can't worry about something like (the division title) when we're not playing our best hockey down the stretch. We'll figure things out together the way we always do and get back on the right page.
