Drury calls it quits after dozen years in NHL

Friday, 08.19.2011 / 11:26 AM / 2011 Offseason News

After 12 seasons and more than 600 points, Chris Drury has retired from the NHL according to a release Friday from the NHL Players Association.

Drury played in 892 games for the Colorado Avalanche, Calgary Flames, Buffalo Sabres and the New York Rangers, and he finished his career with 255 goals and 615 points.

A third-round pick in the 1994 Entry Draft, Drury starred at Boston University for four seasons before joining the Colorado franchise for the 1998-99 season. Drury won the Hobey Baker Award in 1997-98 as the top player in college hockey, and captured the Calder Memorial Trophy with the Avalanche the next season.

Mike Santorelli is enjoying the most relaxing summer he's had in years.

No longer will he be entering a training camp having to fight for a roster spot. No longer does he have to worry about those long bus rides in the American Hockey League.

Thanks to a breakout season in 2010-11, Santorelli -- who had spent the majority of the previous three campaigns in the AHL -- has found a home with the Florida Panthers.

Achilles surgery puts Devils' Zajac on the shelf

Only a couple of weeks after securing Zach Parise for the 2011-12 season, the New Jersey Devils will open the campaign without their No. 1 center.

Devils GM Lou Lamoriello confirmed Thursday that Travis Zajac, who finished third on the club last season with 44 points (13 goals, 31 assists), will miss the first month and a half of the season after undergoing surgery to repair his left Achilles tendon. Zajac suffered the injury Wednesday during an off-ice training workout.

"He'll be in a cast for a week and then he'll be in a walking boot right after that," Lamoriello told the Bergen Record. "Then, it's the healing process, which takes around three months."

Alfredsson skates for first time since injury

Tuesday, 08.16.2011 / 2:38 PM / 2011 Offseason News

The Ottawa Senators received some good news Tuesday about the return of their captain.

Daniel Alfredsson, who missed the end of last season because of a back injury, skated for the first time since he had surgery in June.

"It felt good to get back on the ice today," Alfredsson told the team's website. "I was on for maybe an hour, an hour [and] 20 [minutes]. We did some drills, and played a little bit of scrimmage. It was fun. I was tired, but everything held up well and the back felt fine."

Alfredsson's season ended in February because of his back, and he had surgery Jun. 10 to repair a nerve issue. Ottawa's captain played in only 54 games in 2010-11, the lowest total of his career. His 14 goals was the second-lowest output, and the 31 points he recorded was the fewest.

Report: Shero says Sid hasn't been 'shut down'

PITTSBURGH -- Sidney Crosby has had reoccurrences of the post-concussion symptoms that bothered him in the spring, but Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Ray Shero says his star center hasn't been forced to shut down his vigorous offseason conditioning program.

Crosby routinely pushes himself hard in the final weeks before training camp begins -- the Penguins' camp opens in mid-September -- and Shero said Monday the symptoms occurred when Crosby stepped up his workouts.

Shero did not say what the symptoms were, but Crosby was bothered by headaches after he absorbed hard hits in successive games Jan. 1 and Jan. 5 and again after he resumed working out last spring. Crosby, the NHL's leading scorer at the time he was hurt, missed the second half of the season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Pronger hopes to be ready for season opener

Chris Pronger is doing everything possible to make certain he's in the lineup for the Philadelphia Flyers' season opener at TD Garden against the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins on Oct. 6.

In a conference call with reporters on Monday, the defenseman said the recent surgeries he's undergone have hindered his offseason training regimen -- he would normally have two months of strength training done by this point in the summer, but he's not expected to be ready for the start of Flyers training camp on Sept. 16.

"The goal is to be ready for Game 1 of the regular season," he said. "I am starting to progress. I think (GM Paul Holmgren) talked last week about being cleared to progress my cardio and things like that, and grab light weights and do some shoulder work. Once I get cleared, I can start getting into a full lifting program."

Cup quest brought veteran Brunette to Hawks

CHICAGO -- If there's anything that new Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Brunette has learned over his 15 years in the NHL, it's that self-deprecation goes a long way.

As it turned out, the 37-year old Brunette needed some on Monday during a press conference at the United Center to officially introduce both him and fellow free-agent signee Daniel Carcillo. Brunette was asked about his ability to produce offensively over his career despite not being the fleetest afoot on the ice.

His response? First a smile and then a searing one-liner delivered with the kind of dry humor that should make his transition from the Minnesota Wild to Chicago a smooth one.

Ducks have 'plan B' if Selanne doesn't return

Monday, 08.08.2011 / 4:57 PM / 2011 Offseason News

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

Anaheim GM Bob Murray should have a better idea on how Teemu Selanne is feeling when he speaks with the 41-year-old star either later this week or early next week.

Selanne, who had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in June, continues his offseason rehabilitation and training in Finland this week. He remains undecided on whether he'll return for his 19th season in the NHL or if he'll retire, but he reportedly told a Finnish newspaper that he will make an announcement in September.

"He had been struggling a bit (with his knee). I think he was getting depressed about the whole thing," said Murray, who added that he last spoke to Selanne three days ago. "Finally, last week he had a few days where it wasn't bugging him. He intends to go pretty hard this week with the bigger boys who are there in Helsinki. We are scheduled to speak after this week is over."

Given fresh start, Carcillo prepared to prove value

CHICAGO -- The flying fists, the suspensions and the nickname "Car Bomb" are always the first topics people want to bring up about new Chicago Blackhawks forward Daniel Carcillo.

For good reason, too.

His fists are often thrown in anger, which can sometimes lead to suspensions and the combination of the two is best described as volatile -- kind of like a car bomb.

"The way I play, I'm bound to miss a few games every year (on suspension)," Carcillo said Monday during a press conference at the United Center to officially introduce him and fellow free agent forward Andrew Brunette. "It comes with the territory. I'm not going to say I like being suspended. I don't like the pay cuts or missing the games. But the way I play, it's tough to stay out of the principal's office. "

Ducks extend Carlyle through 2013-14 season

Anaheim coach Randy Carlyle has presided over a winning atmosphere in Anaheim since 2005. It doesn't appear his reign will end any time soon.

The Ducks announced Monday that Carlyle has signed a new three-year contract that will take him through the 2013-14 NHL season. He was under contract for 2011-12, but the upcoming season is now included in his new pact.

Carlyle, Mike Babcock, Lindy Ruff and Barry Trotz are the only coaches who have been behind the same NHL bench since the 2005-06 season.
