The future of unrestricted free agent defenseman Bryce Salvador is expected to be decided by the end of the week, with a retirement announcement the likely conclusion, Northjersey.com reported Tuesday.

Salvador, who has been New Jersey Devils captain since 2013, missed the final 67 games of last season with a bulging disc and nerve damage in his lower back. The 39-year-old said in early June he would make a decision on whether he would try to play again in late August or early September and has had discussions with Devils general manager Ray Shero multiple times over the past month, according to the website. Salvador became an unrestricted free agent July 1.

"We'll probably have some news later in the week on Bryce and we'll kind of see what direction he is going," Shero said Tuesday. "I don't anticipate this will be a situation that's ongoing for a lot longer one way or the other. I anticipate that relatively soon there will be some sort of information."

TORONTO -- Some of the Toronto Maple Leafs' top prospects are hoping the changes made this summer will increase their chances of making the team this season.

Mitch Marner, Connor Brown and Kasperi Kapanen, who were in Toronto on Monday at the NHL Players' Association Rookie Showcase, believe the additions of general manager Lou Lamoriello and coach Mike Babcock will create opportunities for them to play in the NHL sooner rather than later.

Toronto went 30-44-8 last season and finished 27th in the League standings with 68 points.

"It has been a big offseason for the city and the team," Marner said. "A lot of guys came in who have winning records and that's what this city needs – someone to come in and put their foot down and show what it's like to be a playoff team and a contender."

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- There were few positives for the Boston Bruins to take out of missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season for first time in eight seasons.

Forward Brad Marchand took advantage of Boston's extended time off over the summer to have surgery to repair torn tendons in his right elbow that had been bothering him since before the start of the 2014 postseason.

Marchand, who is taking part in informal workouts with teammates here at Ristuccia Arena, said he expects to be at full strength when training camp opens Sept. 17.

"It just started feeling better around the start of August," Marchand told NHL.com on Tuesday. "So it was tough. I couldn't do a whole lot of upper-body workouts for the first three months off. The last month has been good though. It's come around and it's feeling pretty good. But I'm still in the rehab process. So I'm trying to get my strength back up. It's tough to train on one side of your body. You don't want to get too out of whack when you do that, so now I'm just trying to get my strength back up and hopefully feel good for the season."

Philadelphia Flyers goalie Michal Neuvirth has a knockout new mask.

Neuvirth chose a design centered on the "Rocky" movies for his move to Philadelphia.

Neuvirth signed a two-year contract July 1 after playing last season for the Buffalo Sabres and New York Islanders.

"After a few trades and some moves, there were no more spots open for a No. 1 [goalie]," Neuvirth told CSN Philadelphia on Monday. "I had to change my mindset. I was hoping for the best fit. When I got the offer from the Flyers, I felt they were the right fit for me.

"They were one of the first teams that called me. There were a couple more teams, but Philly had the best offer and I felt this was best fit for me."

TORONTO -- It's been a long summer for the prospects looking to fulfill a lifelong dream and reach the NHL this fall.

The National Hockey League Players' Association invited 39 NHL prospects and rookies here for the two-day NHLPA Rookie Showcase.

"It definitely felt more like summer yesterday than it did today," Columbus Blue Jackets forward prospect Sonny Milano said. "Now it feels like the season's kind of starting up."

The event included prospects from 26 of the NHL's 30 teams, including the top two picks in the 2015 NHL Draft, No. 1 Connor McDavid of the Edmonton Oilers and No. 2 Jack Eichel of the Buffalo Sabres.

"It's starting," Montreal Canadiens goaltending prospect Zachary Fucale said. "These things like this, it's good to be around some old teammates and some of the guys I played with at the World Juniors, and I played against a lot of the guys here. So it's good to talk to some of the guys about that."
