Thornton eager to bring his experience to Panthers

Thursday, 07.31.2014 / 6:25 PM / NHL Insider

Alain Poupart - NHL.com Correspondent

SUNRISE, Fla. -- 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."

Thornton, who turned 37 on July 23, joined the Panthers as an unrestricted free agent on July 1 after the Boston Bruins decided against bringing him back for an eighth season. He was a popular player in Boston, in part because of his outgoing personality and also because of his role as the Bruins' enforcer.

Subban, Canadiens still hoping to avoid arbitration

Thursday, 07.31.2014 / 5:25 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Hours separate defenseman P.K. Subban and the Montreal Canadiens from a salary arbitration hearing, but he remains hopeful that can be avoided and a deal can be struck.

Subban's hearing is scheduled for Friday. The 25-year-old restricted free agent tied for fifth among NHL defensemen last season with 53 points in 82 games and led the Canadiens with 14 points in the Stanley Cup Playoffs averaging 27:26 of ice time per game. He earned $3.75 million last season, with a $2.875 million NHL salary-cap charge, in the final season of a two-year contract.

It has been reported by multiple media outlets that the sides remain far apart in their salary submissions.

Subban confirmed Thursday that his agent, Don Meehan, and the Canadiens continue to work toward a new deal.

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.

Daniel Lacroix has been hired as an assistant coach by the Montreal Canadiens, the team announced Wednesday.

It's an opportunity to get back behind the bench, get closer to the action and have a bigger role on a day-to-day basis."

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.

— Brian Elliott to Jeremy Rutherford of the Post-Dispatch on being the Blues' No. 1 goalie
