Thursday, 07.31.2014 / 10:09 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

NHL.com

Goaltender Robin Lehner and the Ottawa Senators have agreed to terms on a three-year contract with an average annual value of $2.225 million, the team announced Thursday.

Lehner, 23, went 12-15-6 with a 3.06 goals-against average and .913 save percentage in 36 games (30 starts) last season. He will be paid $1.5 million this season, $2.025 million next season and $3.15 million in 2016-17.

"We quite honestly spent a long time this summer trying to get a long-term deal done," Lehner told the Senators website. "It turned into a three-year deal which I'm very happy with too.

"I think it's just, from both sides, they wanted me in Ottawa and I've tried to make my point that Ottawa is the place I want to be but, of course, I've got to deserve to be there a long time and that's what my goal is. You never know what the future holds."

Thornton eager to bring his experience to Panthers

Thursday, 07.31.2014 / 6:25 PM / NHL Insider

Alain Poupart - NHL.com Correspondent

Shawn Thornton first got to know Dale Tallon more than a decade ago. Now that the two have been reunited with the Florida Panthers, the veteran forward knows exactly what his new general manager expects from him.

"At this point, I know my role and the job fairly well," Thornton told South Florida media members Thursday. "Dale didn't need to stress it too much to me. We've known each other for a long time and I think he knows how self-aware I am, if I'm self-aware at all, and what he needs to tell me. So there wasn't too much being said, except that he was excited that I was excited to come there. I was very pleased that they were as interested."

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Two players taken in the first round of the 2014 NHL Draft will be among the European players taking part in the USA Hockey national junior evaluation camp being held Aug. 2-9 in Lake Placid, N.Y.

The camp is one of the first steps toward building the teams that will play in the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Among the players taking part for defending gold medalist Finland is forward Kasperi Kapanen, who plays for KalPa in Liiga, Finland's top professional league. He was picked by the Pittsburgh Penguins with the 22nd pick in the first round.

Kapanen likely would have been on the team that won the tournament last year were it not for a shoulder injury that sidelined him for a month.

Rangers' Talbot aims to show rookie season no fluke

Wednesday, 07.30.2014 / 3:30 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Cam Talbot came to New York Rangers training camp last September trying to prove he was an NHL-caliber goaltender. He'll be back this September trying to show his performance as Henrik Lundqvist's backup in 2013-14 was no fluke.

Talbot got his first chance to play in the NHL last October as a 26-year-old rookie after Martin Biron retired, and he made the most of it. The former Alabama-Huntsville goaltender went 12-6-1 with a 1.64 goals-against average, a save percentage of .941 and three shutouts.

He told BlueshirtsUnited.com his goal for this season is to show he's not a one-hit wonder.

"I think the last few years I've come into camp in good shape and I've been fairly ready, but they've had two pretty good goalies ahead of me and it wasn't my time," Talbot said. "This year coming up, I have to prove that last year wasn't a fluke. I think a lot of people are going to think I came in and played a little bit beyond my range last year, and it's my goal to go out and prove them wrong."

RECORD: 18-6-2
GAA: 1.96 | SVP: 0.922
The St. Louis Blues have said Brian Elliott is heading into this season as their No. 1 goaltender.

It seems no one has told Brian Elliott.

"I really haven't heard it from the horse's mouth, so to speak, but obviously my parents and friends and family have read stuff on the Internet," Elliott told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in an interview published Tuesday. "It's obviously good to hear those words, that they have confidence in you, but it is all up to you and how you play. There's always somebody knocking on the door."
