VANCOUVER -- For Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender James Reimer, getting better during the offseason isn't only about working with new coaches. It's about learning from fellow NHL goalies.

Reimer was one of six professional goaltenders who took part in the second annual NET360 camp near his summer home in Kelowna, British Columbia, in August. The group also included Vezina Trophy finalist Devan Dubnyk of the Minnesota Wild and Thomas Greiss of the New York Islanders, as well as prospects Laurent Brossoit of the Edmonton Oilers, Chris Driedger of the Ottawa Senators and Nathan Lieuwen of the Buffalo Sabres.

"What I like about it is the dynamic of getting a whole bunch of really good goalies and just trying to figure out what they do and how they play," Reimer told "On the ice you can go through a drill and see how he takes on different plays and then talk to him if you want and talk to a bunch of different goalie coaches about it too and have a bit of a roundtable. You have an open mind to new ideas."

Devils captain Salvador announces retirement

Wednesday, 09.02.2015 / 10:40 PM / News

Defenseman Bryce Salvador, who played 13 seasons in the NHL, announced his retirement Wednesday.

Salvador missed the final 67 games of last season with the New Jersey Devils with a bulging disk and nerve damage in his lower back. He became an unrestricted free agent July 1.

"I just think there were a lot of factors over the last two seasons," the 39-year-old told "I could just see that the body wasn't responding as it used to and it was just getting more and more difficult to stay healthy. And the position that I was in, being the captain, this last season it was really tough to be the team leader and not be present. So I just kind of realized that even though I can play, I feel I can play and come back, I just didn't know if I'd be able to make it a full season.

"Knowing that, I just kind of really said, 'Does it make sense to put myself in that situation when the mind is still there and I feel good, but maybe the body is telling me it's time?'"

Salvador served as Devils captain since 2013.

Predators president says he has perennial contender

Wednesday, 09.02.2015 / 8:55 PM / News

The Nashville Predators had the best record in the NHL for a time last season, and their president said Wednesday they are set up to contend for many years as well as any NHL team.

"Where we're sitting right now from a hockey franchise standpoint, we're better poised as a franchise because of the talent we have and how long they're locked up, than we ever have been in the history of the team," Sean Henry said, according to the Predators website. "When you look throughout the League, there's probably not another team that's set up for the next five to eight years to be as consistent as we're going to be.

"Hopefully we catch the magic in that run and win the Stanley Cup, but at least compete for it year in and year out."

Capitals' Orlov 'ready to play' after sidelined for year

Wednesday, 09.02.2015 / 5:15 PM / News

Dmitry Orlov did not play for the Washington Capitals last season after sustaining a wrist injury in the offseason, but the 24-year old defenseman said he is healthy and excited to play in the NHL for the first time since April 2014.

"I can shoot, I can do everything," Orlov told the Washington Post in remarks published Wednesday. "I feel good. I feel fine. I'm ready to play."

Orlov broke his wrist during the IIHF World Championship in May 2014 and was expected to need six months to recover, but complications caused him to need more time. When he was ready to return in April 2015, the Capitals had no room for him.

"Yeah, it's life, it's hard, everybody gets injured," Orlov said. "My injury was longer than expected, so right now, [it] doesn't matter for me what's happened, I just need to be focused on this season."

Wednesday, 09.02.2015 / 4:40 PM / News

"Every year is obviously tough," Holtby told Monumental Network. "It's one thing to look at yourself on paper, but when you actually do it it's completely different and we learned a lot last year and came a long ways as a team."

DETROIT -- Johan Franzen is feeling good and pushing himself.

The Detroit Red Wings right wing was limited to 33 games last season because of post-concussion syndrome and other injuries; he last played on Jan. 6. But the 35-year-old has been on the ice working out with teammates during informal skates at Joe Louis Arena for the past few weeks, and he's been trying to ramp up his effort and intensity.

"Going pretty hard, probably too much for me, just to see if I can get through it," Franzen said after the informal skate Wednesday. " … My threshold is getting higher and higher every week. [I'm] just pushing my body a little more, letting it rest and see where we are after that."

Franzen said he expects to pass his physical and be cleared for training camp, which begins Sept. 17 in Traverse City, Mich.

Madi Freeman's battle against leukemia got a bit easier for one day thanks to her favorite hockey team.

Freeman, a Calgary Flames fan who recently celebrated her 17th birthday, was diagnosed with leukemia in February. Her 12-year-old brother Ty sent a letter to Flames coach Bob Hartley asking for a meet-and-greet for his sister and their family with the team.

She got something even better this week when Flames forward Joe Colborne and mascot Harvey the Hound visited Madi at her home in High River, Alberta to celebrate her birthday. Colborne brought a bouquet of flowers, a birthday cake and other presents, including jerseys from Colborne and teammate Sean Monahan. Monahan also talked to Madi via Skype from his offseason home in Toronto.
