Lamoriello leaves Devils, becomes Maple Leafs GM

Mike Brophy - NHL.com Correspondent

TORONTO -- Lou Lamoriello's burning desire to win led to a life-altering change Thursday.

Lamoriello, who turns 73 in October, resigned as president of the New Jersey Devils to become the 16th general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs. He was hired by Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan and replaces Dave Nonis, who was fired after Toronto finished 27th in the NHL standings last season.

"The thing that has driven me all of my life is winning," Lamoriello said after being introduced at Air Canada Centre. "The commitment that the Toronto Maple Leafs have made when they brought Brendan in and brought (coach) Mike Babcock in, to me the only thing that can happen is having success. Winning doesn't happen because you say it; winning happens because of everything you do that leads to it."

The San Jose Sharks haven't had a captain since Joe Thornton wore the "C" in the 2013-14 season, but coach Peter DeBoer said that will change this season.

"I feel very confident by the first game of the season, we'll have a captain," DeBoer told 95.7 The Game in San Jose on Wednesday. "It's not something we are going to drag around as a distraction this year. We're going to move past that. I think the players are ready for that too, they just want to play some hockey and get this thing back on track."

Unmasked: Jones excited for bigger role with Sharks

Thursday, 07.23.2015 / 12:22 PM / Unmasked

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER – Martin Jones isn't going to do anything different this summer to get ready for the season just because he recently went from being a seldom-used backup goalie with the Los Angeles Kings to a likely No.1 for the San Jose Sharks.

Jones, 25, plans to stick with the same offseason routine that made him one of the more sought-after goalies on a busy trade market and helped to earn the Vancouver native a three-year contract reportedly worth $9 million from the Sharks despite having 34 games of NHL experience.

But Jones' normal summer routine is already notably different than most of his puck-stopping peers in the NHL.

Where many focus on technical tweaks with private goalie coaches and steer clear of the endless breakaways and backdoor tap-ins of shinny in the summer, Jones goes the other way, eschewing goalie-specific ice sessions in favor of more wide-open scrimmages.

"As I've gotten older and my game has evolved, I have gone more away from the technical side, which I guess is a little bit strange to say but it's added a little more depth to my game, for sure," Jones told NHL.com.

Babcock: Lamoriello hire 'home run' for Maple Leafs

Thursday, 07.23.2015 / 12:02 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock considers the addition of Lou Lamoriello as general manager to be a win for everybody in the organization.

Lamoriello resigned Thursday as president of the New Jersey Devils, a position he held for 28 years, to become the 16th general manager of the Maple Leafs.

"Lou has been about winning," Babcock told NHL.com on Thursday. "Lou is a guy who has pushed himself to get better every single day. I think a senior management guy joining our team, understanding what the vision and what the plan is, is a home run for all of us.

"Everyone concerns themselves with the team on the ice; the team off the ice precedes the team on the ice. I think we're set up very good."

Lamoriello timeline highlighted by three Cup wins

The banners that hang from the ceiling of Prudential Center are there in part because of how Lou Lamoriello ran the New Jersey Devils for 28 years as general manager.

Lamoriello, the longest-serving GM in the NHL, relinquished that position May 4 and hired Ray Shero to replace him. Lamoriello, 72, remained as president of the Devils, but he resigned that position as well Thursday and was named general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Under Lamoriello's leadership the Devils went to the Stanley Cup Playoffs 21 times, won nine division titles, went to the Stanley Cup Final five times and won the Cup in 1995, 2000 and 2003.

Here are some highlights from Lamoriello's tenure with the Devils:

Penguins to keep record-setting goalie Murray in AHL

Wednesday, 07.22.2015 / 9:35 PM / News

NHL.com

It looks like Pittsburgh Penguins goalie prospect Matt Murray will have a chance to break his American Hockey League shutout-streak record by returning to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this season.

The Penguins plan to keep Murray in the AHL rather than use him as Marc-Andre Fleury's backup.

"He's not coming in here and beating out Marc-Andre Fleury and taking over this team," assistant general manager Tom Fitzgerald told the Penguins website in remarks published Wednesday. "We love what we have down the line here, and it is down the line. He just turned 21. He needs to play hockey games. You can't develop if he's sitting on the bench. That's just a fact."

Murray, the AHL Goaltender of the Year and Rookie of the Year, seems fine with that plan.

"I think either way could be good for me," Murray said.

Stars D-man Johns hopes to make NHL debut in '15-16

Stephen Johns was traded by the Chicago Blackhawks to the Dallas Stars along with Patrick Sharp earlier this month, but unlike Sharp, the defenseman is no lock for an NHL roster spot.

"I am just going to be like every other guy here, battling for a spot, competing and doing whatever I can," Johns told the Stars website Wednesday. "Personally, I think I am ready, but it's not up to me. I am going to do the best that I can, play the best hockey I can and try to impress them."

Avalanche's Grigorenko eager to play for Roy: report

Mikhail Grigorenko, who was traded to the Colorado Avalanche by the Buffalo Sabres at the 2015 NHL Draft, is hoping a reunion with Patrick Roy can spark his game.

Roy coached the forward for two seasons with the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

"I can't wait for the opportunity to have him as a coach again," Grigorenko told the Denver Post on Wednesday. "I had my best years in Quebec, and it was great having Patrick as a coach. He was great to me and taught me a lot of things on and off the ice. I can't thank him enough for what he's done for me already, and I can't wait to have him as a coach again."

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
