Agent says Brodeur looking for 700 wins: report

Wednesday, 09.10.2014 / 8:40 AM / News

NHL.com

The agent for Martin Brodeur said Tuesday one reason the free-agent goaltender is looking for a team rather than retiring is he wants to reach 700 wins.

"He's 12 wins away from 700 and those are things he wants to accomplish," Pat Brisson told Northjersey.com. "He'd like to play on a team that will have a chance to go far as well. Right now I don't have the perfect script. However, I'm OK with it because, based on experience, all teams are going for the Stanley Cup when camp opens and three weeks later they realize that there's missing pieces here and there."

Mark Messier won the Stanley Cup five times as a player with the Edmonton Oilers. He's now hoping to help deliver a sixth championship in an advisory role.

Messier, 53, said Tuesday he is working with the Oilers as an adviser. He is assisting a front office that includes former teammates Kevin Lowe (president, hockey operations), Craig MacTavish (general manager), Kelly Buchberger (player personnel) and Keith Acton (associate coach).

"Adviser, consultant," Messier said, according to the Oilers website. "I'm available for anything that they need me to do or talk about.

"For instance, just coming in today and lending some of my experiences as a captain with the coaches here and the organization. So any kind of way that I can help with the players, with the coaches, with decisions. I just told [Lowe] and [MacTavish] that I would be available 24/7 for whatever they needed me to do. I am looking forward to taking this into the next generation of these kids and turning it around."

Detroit Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk is skating without limitations after he missed time last season with a knee injury.

"It looks like the work has helped me, and I don't need the surgery," Datsyuk told the Red Wings website Tuesday at Joe Louis Arena. "… I'm skating now and it feels much better. Nothing bothers me and we'll see."

Datsyuk, 36, is entering his 13th season in the NHL. He had 17 goals and 20 assists in 45 regular-season games for the Red Wings in 2013-14 and had five points in five Stanley Cup Playoff games (Detroit was eliminated by the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference First Round).

Datsyuk said surgery on his left knee was an option following the 2014 Sochi Olympics, where he played for Russia, but he opted to play through the pain.

Bergeron helps EA unveil NHL 15 video game

Tuesday, 09.09.2014 / 7:05 PM / News

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Boston Bruins forward Patrice Bergeron has competed at hockey's highest levels, including the Stanley Cup Final, IIHF World Championship and the Winter Olympics. But he was entering unfamiliar territory on Tuesday when he helped launch EA Sports' NHL 15 video game by competing against one of his biggest fans.

Selected in an online vote to be featured on the cover of the game, Bergeron arrived at the NHL Store Powered by Reebok, where he faced 14-year-old Daniel Quigley, a diehard Bruins fan from New Jersey. Quigley earned the right to compete against his hockey idol by winning an online raffle.

"It was crazy. It was unbelievable, meeting Patrice Bergeron," Quigley said. "Playing him in NHL 15 was unreal. I should probably frame that [game] case that he signed."

With broadcasters Mike Emrick and Ed Olczyk providing live play-by-play for the video game contest, Bergeron and Quigley went head-to-head for two periods, finishing in a scoreless tie.

MacKinnon: Drouin earned his top-prospect status

Tuesday, 09.09.2014 / 3:21 PM / NHL.com's Top 60 Prospects

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEW YORK -- Nathan MacKinnon knows a little something about how to excel as a rookie in the NHL.

He did it in 2013-14 as a member of the Colorado Avalanche, leading all first-year players in points (63) and tying for first in goals (24) en route to winning the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie.

MacKinnon is pretty confident that Jonathan Drouin, his former linemate with the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, is ready to take a similar path with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2014-15.

Drouin was voted the No. 1 NHL prospect on NHL.com's Top 60 prospect ranking, released Tuesday.

"I don't see a lot of junior-hockey highlights now but I'm on Twitter and noticed he was tearing it up," MacKinnon said of Drouin. "He had some sick games and I watched the highlights online. I still try and follow the Mooseheads whenever I can."

Future Goals program uses hockey as teaching tool

Tuesday, 09.09.2014 / 2:37 PM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- As Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban made the rounds from student to student at Newark Science Park High School on Tuesday, he started thinking about how big of an impact education has had on his life and his family.

"My family has a very big educational background," Subban said. "My dad worked in the Toronto District School Board for over 30 years as a principal. My sisters are both teachers. My sister's husband is a teacher. Working with kids and the school board has been something my family has been doing for a long time."

Now Subban will get his chance to do the same through the Future Goals Digital Education Program, a joint initiative between the National Hockey League and National Hockey League Players' Association.
