Forward Clarke MacArthur agreed to terms with the Ottawa Senators on a five-year, $23.25 million contract extension, the team announced Tuesday.

The contract starts with the 2015-16 season, has an average annual value of $4.65 million, and keeps him with the Senators through the 2019-20 season. MacArthur could have become an unrestricted free agent after the 2014-15 season.

"Obviously our happiness with his performance last year was a big reason to give him the term that we did," general manager Bryan Murray said Tuesday on a conference call, according to TSN.

Seidenberg says he'll be ready for Bruins camp

Tuesday, 08.19.2014 / 8:51 PM / News

Boston Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg said he will be ready for training camp after recovering from a season-ending knee injury.

"I think the more I go on [the ice], the more my knee gets used to it, and like always, I never feel good when I start skating every summer, so it will take some time, but once training camp starts, I should be fine," Seidenberg told the Bruins website in remarks published Monday.

Seidenberg last played Dec. 27 and had surgery to repair an ACL/MCL injury in his right knee in early January. The prognosis was a return in 6-8 months but he said he could have played in the Stanley Cup Playoffs had the Bruins advanced to the Eastern Conference Final.

Boston, which won the Presidents' Trophy, was eliminated by the Montreal Canadiens on May 14 in the seventh game of the Eastern Conference Second Round.

"Those times during my injury when the guys were still playing, it went slow. It was painful just to go to every game and watch," Seidenberg told writer Caryn Switaj. "Then there were times when it was going well and I saw progress with my injury, but then once the season was over."

Oilers to host celebration for 1984 Stanley Cup team

Tuesday, 08.19.2014 / 5:43 PM / News

Derek Van Diest - NHL.com Correspondent

EDMONTON -- Wayne Gretzky is getting the Boys on the Bus back together again.

The Edmonton Oilers will commemorate the 30th anniversary of their first Stanley Cup with an event bringing together the members of the 1984 team and staff for a reunion at Rexall Place on Oct. 10. The reunion will coincide with the Oilers' 2014-15 season opener against the Calgary Flames on Oct. 9.

"One of the great things about being a professional hockey player is the fond memories that you have over the years and the friendships that you develop," Gretzky said Tuesday. "Kevin [Lowe] and I lived for a lot of years together in Edmonton and when I saw him this winter, I started thinking about something really unique and something really special. The Oilers and the city of Edmonton have always been leaders in doing things that are innovative. The first outdoor game was in Edmonton where it was 40-below [Celsius] and it was spectacular.

"So we started talking about doing something special and bringing this team that won their first Stanley Cup in Edmonton back to Alberta to reminisce and selfishly have some fun together. A lot of players made a lot of great friends in Edmonton over the years and they maybe haven't seen people for a long time, and just as important, to be able to raise money for a great cause."

Karlsson OK if he's asked to be Senators captain

Monday, 08.18.2014 / 6:09 PM / News

NHL.com

The Ottawa Senators are about to have their third captain in three seasons. Defenseman Erik Karlsson knows it could be him.

"Obviously it's something that I wouldn't say no to [but] it's not something that I'm going to ask for," Karlsson told the Senators website Monday. "I think whoever takes the decision is going to make the right one, and whether it's me or someone else, I think it's going to be good for the team and good for the organization."

The Senators need a replacement for Jason Spezza, who was traded to the Dallas Stars this offseason. Spezza took over as captain from Daniel Alfredsson, who signed with the Detroit Red Wings as a free agent prior to last season.

Blackhawks, Leighton agree on one-year contract

Monday, 08.18.2014 / 5:29 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Michael Leighton had to clear his name before he could begin to embark on what he hopes is a journey back to the NHL in his second stint with the Chicago Blackhawks.

He does not know who picked up the puck that Patrick Kane used to beat him for the Stanley Cup-clinching overtime goal in Game 6 of the 2010 Stanley Cup Final; he does not know who has the puck now, or where it might be; and he never wants to see the puck again.

"I've heard there's a lot of controversy about it," Leighton said. "I don't know where the puck is. I've been asked many times. The last I saw it was under the net. I lifted the net up and kicked it. I know the referee or linesman was beside me and that was it. That was really the last thing on my mind, finding where that puck was."

Leighton expects to hear more about the missing puck and Kane's Cup-winning goal next month, when he arrives for training camp with the Blackhawks.

I think you always have to look internally before you look externally to see, 'Do we have these players within our organization?' And I think we do.
