Tuesday, 07.12.2011 / 12:08 PM / 2011 Offseason News
The Anaheim Ducks have acquired restricted free agent Andrew Cogliano from the Edmonton Oilers in exchange for a second-round pick in the 2013 Entry Draft.

Cogliano, 24, was a first-round pick by the Oilers, taken 25th in 2005. He has never missed a game since entering the League and finished this past season with 11 goals and 35 points.

Cogliano had his best season as a rookie in 2007-08, posting career highs with 18 goals and 45 points. He scored 18 goals again the following season and for his career has 57 goals and 146 points in 328 games for Edmonton.

Flyers built for future with rookie centers

Tuesday, 07.12.2011 / 11:44 AM / 2011 Offseason News

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

"He's probably the best player outside of the NHL that's not playing. He's a tremendous young player and I look forward to seeing him over the next number of years in our organization."
-- Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren on Brayden Schenn

The new direction of the Philadelphia Flyers was set in motion June 23, when the team traded All-Star centers Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, and in return received center Brayden Schenn and the eighth pick in the 2011 Entry Draft, which the team used to pick center Sean Couturier.

In their eight seasons together as part of the Flyers, Carter and Richards developed a deep friendship. The club must be hoping a similar scenario can play out with their new center-ice duo, as Schenn and Couturier spent the last week as roommates during the club's just-completed prospect development camp.

Delbarton duo reunites at Devils camp

Tuesday, 07.12.2011 / 10:30 AM / 2011 Offseason News

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

"Coming from New Jersey (Basking Ridge), I've been a Devils fan my whole life and have been watching them play since I was a little kid. Obviously, to see guys like Scott Stevens and Larry Robinson on the ice as instructors is absolutely incredible. It's an honor to see them here and be taught by such a great group of guys." -- Matt Killian

NEWARK, N.J. -- It was almost four months ago that New Jersey natives Peter McMullen and Matt Killian were helping lead Delbarton to an unprecedented fourth straight Non-Public high school championship at the Prudential Center.
 
The duo made a triumphant return to the area this week as invites to the New Jersey Devils rookie camp at the connecting arena, AmeriHealth Pavilion. Only this time, instead of parading the championship trophy on the ice in the presence of over 7,300-plus fans, they were on opposite teams looking to get the best of each other in front of Devils staff and media members.
 
"I think I got him good a couple of times during practices this year (at Delbarton) but we were on opposite teams at the camp and there were a bunch of guys rotating in and out so everyone looked the same with the same equipment," Killian told NHL.com. "It was tough to point him out, but if I get a chance to hit him, I'll hit him."

Devils' Larsson feels ready to play in the NHL

Tuesday, 07.12.2011 / 9:37 AM / 2011 Offseason News

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- After surviving his first training session in a New Jersey Devils jersey, Adam Larsson found himself in an enviable position -- discussing the art of playing defense with three-time Stanley Cup champion Scott Stevens.
 
"He gave me a few tips; he knows best," Larsson said. "Of course, I'll listen to every single word he says. I look up to him."
 
Perhaps Stevens figured it was as good a time as any to offer some words of encouragement to the 6-foot-3, 197-pound blueliner, who hopes to earn a spot on the team's roster this season.

Following the morning chat, Stevens even gave Larsson a friendly stick tap on the seat of his pants.

Heatley and Setoguchi excited to be in Minnesota

Monday, 07.11.2011 / 6:07 PM / 2011 Offseason News

John Kreiser - NHL.com Columnist

Neither Dany Heatley nor Devin Setoguchi had any idea three weeks ago they'd be playing in Minnesota next season. But now that they're in the "State of Hockey," they're excited to be there.

The Wild recently acquired both players from San Jose in separate trades -- they landed Setoguchi at the Entry Draft in a deal that sent defenseman Brent Burns to the Sharks, then got Heatley, a two-time 50-goal scorer, in a one-for-one swap for Martin Havlat on July 3.

For Setoguchi, who had signed a three-year contract with the Sharks the night before the draft, the deal was a shock.

"No, not at all," Setoguchi told the media on Monday when asked if he had any inkling that he'd be traded. "I was just more excited that I signed the new contract. And then the next day you get shipped off. But that’s the way it is. That’s sports. You can never get too comfortable and things happen for a reason. They wanted me here and I want to be here. I want to be a big part to this team and help out. I’m excited to be here and get a fresh start."

Bruins see early promise at development camp

Monday, 07.11.2011 / 5:18 PM / 2011 Offseason News

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Holding their development camp for the fifth straight summer, the Boston Bruins sent the message early in camp, as they always do, that just because they're working out at the team's Ristuccia Arena practice facility, the camp isn't about trying out or winning a job.

But that doesn't mean the two dozen or so prospects and free agents can't still catch the eye of General Manager Peter Chiarelli.

"Any time you watch them, you're always assessing them … what I told them to start the camp was, pay attention to every little detail in this camp," Chiarelli said Monday after the camp concluded its fifth and final day. "On the ice, off the ice, treat it as if -- you're trying out, but treat it with the utmost care and attention and determination. We want to instill at an early age the work ethic, the level of expectation that they're going to be facing from us. At the end of the day, it's a development tool, and  … it indoctrinates the new players into the organization and that's what we hope to accomplish."

Vokoun earns early nod as Washington's No. 1

Monday, 07.11.2011 / 4:39 PM / 2011 Offseason News

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Michal Neuvirth played every minute for the Washington Capitals during the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs, but coach Bruce Boudreau said new addition Tomas Vokoun will likely enter training camp as the nominal "No. 1 goaltender."

The Capitals signed the 35-year-old Vokoun to a one-year, $1.5 million contract July 2 -- one day after trading Semyon Varlamov to Colorado for a first- and second-round pick.

"We're always going to play who we think is the best, but if you're looking at a guy that has experience and everything and has been a No. 1 goalie, you have to give Vokoun the respect that he's coming in and going to be the No. 1 guy," Boudreau said Monday, the first day of Washington's development camp at Kettler Capitals Iceplex. "We'll see where it goes from there."

Bryzgalov embracing role as Flyers' new No. 1

Monday, 07.11.2011 / 12:34 PM / 2011 Offseason News

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Ilya Bryzgalov may have spent his entire NHL career in the Western Conference, but when he signed a nine-year contract to play goalie for the Philadelphia Flyers, he knew exactly what the situation would be.

The Flyers haven't won a Stanley Cup since 1975, and almost since Bernie Parent skated off the ice that May day in Buffalo, the team has been looking for another championship-caliber netminder.

And following last spring's goaltending carousel -- the Flyers started three different goalies in the first round against the Buffalo Sabres and then allowed 20 goals in four games in a second-round sweep by the Boston Bruins -- the determination was made to acquire a top-flight netminder.

The Florida Panthers acquired defenseman Keith Seabrook, Brent’s little brother, from the Calgary Flames on Saturday for the rights to defenseman Jordan Henry.
