Friday, 01.09.2015 / 7:55 PM / News

Joe Yerdon - NHL.com Correspondent

TORONTO -- Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky is the latest player to make a long-term commitment to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Bobrovsky on Friday signed a four-year contract extension worth $29.7 million. It will pay him $7.425 million per season starting in 2015-16 and makes him the second-highest paid NHL goalie behind Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers.

"We believe he's only going to improve," Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said here after the deal was announced. "It's ultimately up to the player to prove that he's worth the contract that he gets. That's the way we operate, we operate on giving them the futures, and that's [why] we evaluate these players every day, but we believe with his hard work and dedication he's going to be one of the top goalies in this league for a long time."

Bold jersey designs on tap for 2015 NHL All-Star Game

Friday, 01.09.2015 / 7:00 PM / 2015 NHL All-Star Weekend

A bold, fresh jersey design is the perfect complement to the speed and agility of those selected to play in the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Jan. 25 at Nationwide Arena in Columbus. Reebok believes it has accomplished just that with its state-of-the-art look and modern appeal in the uniforms for the participants at this year's event.

"Fans get to see their favorite players in their typical uniforms every game during the season," said Reebok uniform designer Dave Conetta. "But we wanted to do something with this uniform that made the idea of a hero coming alive."

Fans immediately will notice the green trim on each of the lightweight jerseys, regardless of whether they are the "home" blacks or "away" whites. The "elite green" color, while new to fans as a primary color, actually is in the necklines of all authentic NHL jerseys.

Wild's Parise to use hockey to aid in grieving process

Friday, 01.09.2015 / 2:33 PM / News

Dan Myers - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise was back on the ice Friday, trying to find a little bit of normalcy in what has been a trying few weeks.

Parise's father, former NHL player J.P. Parise, died Wednesday after a battle with lung cancer.

Zach Parise has been away from the team since Tuesday, missing two games and a practice, but was able to spend time with his father and his family during J.P.'s final days.

"Not only the last few days, but the last month has been really hard," Parise said. "Last night, watching the game, finally my wife told me, 'You have to go to the rink. You have to go and practice and get away and try to get back in the groove of things.'"

Islanders' Okposo, Capuano reflect on J.P. Parise

Friday, 01.09.2015 / 2:04 PM / NHL Insider

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Former New York Islanders forward J.P. Parise, who died of lung cancer on Wednesday, is certainly on the minds and hearts of current players and coaches of the team.

Coach Jack Capuano and a few players discussed Parise's legacy following the Islanders optional skate Friday at Prudential Center, where they will play the New Jersey Devils.

Forward Kyle Okposo, who played for J.P. Parise at Shattuck-St. Mary's school in Minnesota in 2004-05, will always remember his smile and guidance.

"J.P. was a good man; I first met him when I went to Shattuck and I was 14," Okposo said. "He was a coach of mine and I developed a relationship with him over time in those years. He was someone I turned to when I needed some help, guidance or advice, and he's going to be missed."

Maple Leafs' Shanahan: Onus on players to step up

Friday, 01.09.2015 / 1:30 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Without technically issuing an ultimatum, Toronto Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan essentially said Friday that it's time for the players to show management what they're made of or big changes will be coming.

Shanahan said he spoke to the team Friday morning at Air Canada Centre to deliver that same message.

"I felt it was a good time to remind them what expectations are, try to galvanize the group," Shanahan said. "We're not at the end of the season, we're at the midpoint of the season; they're still in the hunt here. How they're going to be defined is really up to them. I also wanted to make it very clear to them that we're watching, we're on it. They're not getting by us. They're not escaping us. We're not going to be a group that is afraid to act if we feel we can make ourselves better."

Flames prospect Poirier having all-star season in AHL

Friday, 01.09.2015 / 12:16 PM / AHL Update

Kinsey Janke - Special to NHL.com

As far as forward Emile Poirier was concerned, the 2013 NHL Draft at the Prudential Center in New Jersey was just a day where he may or may not have had a chance to become a draft pick of a NHL team.

Though he'd had a successful major junior career, and NHL Central Scouting had him consistently rising in their top-40 projections that year, Poirier simply didn't expect it.

"I was just thinking I was going there with all my family and my friends and it was just going to be a good weekend to enjoy," he said. "And then I end up going that high and so I was really happy; it ended up a good weekend."
