Canucks' Horvat trims down, aims for roster spot

VANCOUVER -- Bo Horvat is trying to lighten up.

Not in a "Why so serious?" kind of way, mind you. The Vancouver Canucks' top prospect is trying to lose weight with the hope it will make him faster and ease the transition from junior hockey to the NHL as a 19-year-old center this season.

Horvat, who was selected by the Canucks with the ninth pick of the 2013 NHL Draft, a pick acquired from the New Jersey Devils in a trade for goaltender Cory Schneider, has already dropped 6-8 pounds in less than three weeks.

"I have to get lighter," said Horvat, who was listed at 6-foot and 206 pounds for Canucks development camp. "It's not like I am overweight or anything; it's just trying to get quick, get leaner and a little bit lighter and try to work on my speed and my agility."

Defenseman Chris Butler signed a one-year, two-way contract with the St. Louis Blues, the team announced Wednesday. Financial terms were not disclosed.

"My personal goal is to come to training camp and compete for a spot," Butler told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "I have no intention of playing in the American League, even though it's a two-way deal. I feel like I'm still an NHL player ... it's just kind of a camp to take a step back and redefine myself as a player, come to a winning organization and a team and a franchise that I think is pretty close to achieving their ultimate goal."

Grigorenko blames self for not sticking with Sabres

Mikhail Grigorenko started each of the past two seasons with the Buffalo Sabres, then found himself back in juniors and eventually in the American Hockey League.

He says he has only himself to blame.

"From past experiences, I've kind of realized that it was probably no one's fault but mine that I didn't stay in the NHL," Grigorenko told the Sabres website Wednesday at development camp. "If I want to play in the best league in the world, it's just on me. No one is going to make me play just because I was drafted in the first round. I just need to go out there and just be the best."

Toews, Kane never thought of leaving Blackhawks

Wednesday, 07.16.2014 / 8:35 PM / NHL Insider

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane would've had tantalizing options as unrestricted free agents, but the idea of staying with the Chicago Blackhawks was more appealing.

After winning the Stanley Cup twice in their first seven seasons, the Blackhawks' dynamic duo intends to add more championship banners to the rafters inside United Center. That's ultimately what led them to sign identical eight-year contract extensions July 9, reportedly worth $84 million each, choosing to avoid hitting the open market as free agents July 1, 2015.

Quote of the Day

When somebody goes out and is there to score goals, but is also there to make some big hits, fight, do all of those things, and he has a great mustache, it was great to see him get that hit and get everybody going.
