Jets acquire goalie Budaj from Canadiens

Sunday, 10.05.2014 / 12:46 PM / News

NHL.com

The Winnipeg Jets on Sunday acquired goaltender Peter Budaj and forward Patrick Holland from the Montreal Canadiens for forward Eric Tangradi.

Budaj, 32, went 10-8-3 with a 2.51 goals-against average and .909 save percentage in 24 games last season backing up Carey Price. In 296 NHL games with the Colorado Avalanche and Canadiens, Budaj is 124-107-36 with a 2.76 GAA and .903 save percentage.  He is expected to back up Ondrej Pavelec in Winnipeg.

"I would like to thank Peter Budaj who has been an outstanding teammate and stood tall for us over the past three seasons," Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin said in a statement. "This transaction enables our team to make room for Dustin Tokarski. Eric Tangradi is a young veteran with 136 NHL games under his belt. He adds depth to our group up front and provides us with more options when we will need help coming from our affiliate team in Hamilton."

Lightning captain Stamkos early Hart Trophy choice

Sunday, 10.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Awkward silence.

When told he was being selected as the preseason favorite to win the 2015 Hart Trophy, Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos had nothing to say, and not because he was left speechless by an honor that comes with words and hype rather than hardware and bonus money.

Getting chosen as a preseason favorite for anything means about as much to Stamkos as the watermelons, Legos, wedding cake and plates he destroyed with his powerful slap shot during his most recent commercial shoot for Bauer.

That's to say it's altogether meaningless to him, with one exception:

"I hope I can," Stamkos said of winning the Hart Trophy.

Bruins reluctantly trade Boychuk to Islanders

BOSTON -- Teams with Stanley Cup aspirations don't generally start their season by trading a top-four defenseman.

But Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli did that Saturday when he traded Johnny Boychuk to the New York Islanders for the Philadelphia Flyers' second-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft (previously acquired by the Islanders), the Islanders' 2016 second-round pick and a conditional third-round pick in 2015 that Boston will receive if the Islanders trade Boychuk to another Eastern Conference team this season.

Chiarelli conceded that by making this trade four days before the regular-season opener against the Flyers, he didn't make the Bruins better.

"How does it impact our team? He's very well-liked and I'm sure the guys are bummed and they're probably a little bit bummed at me for doing it," Chiarelli said at TD Garden prior to the Bruins' preseason game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Islanders trade for defensemen Boychuk, Leddy

Saturday, 10.04.2014 / 5:56 PM / News

John Kreiser - NHL.com Managing Editor

The New York Islanders retooled their defense Saturday, acquiring veteran defenseman Johnny Boychuk from the Boston Bruins and up-and-coming defenseman Nick Leddy from the Chicago Blackhawks in separate trades.

Boychuk, who helped the Bruins win the Stanley Cup in 2011, was obtained for two second-round picks, one in the 2015 NHL Draft and another in 2016. There is a conditional third-round pick in 2015 involved in the trade, which comes into play if the Islanders trade Boychuk to another Eastern Conference team before the end of this season. The 2015 second-round pick going to Boston was acquired by the Islanders from the Philadelphia Flyers in a March trade for defenseman Andrew MacDonald.

"They've both won a Stanley Cup, so in the leadership department, that helps our group," Islanders general manager Garth Snow told the team website. "Leddy's ability to move the puck and skate the puck up ice, add offense; Boychuk’s ability to be physical, clear the front of the net and a howitzer for a shot; for us, [those are] two solid additions to our club."

Time has come for Kings' Doughty to claim Norris

Saturday, 10.04.2014 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

In two of the past three Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Los Angeles Kings' Drew Doughty has been a near consensus choice as the best defenseman in the tournament.

In each of the past two Winter Olympics, Doughty has been a near consensus choice as one of the best defensemen in the tournament.

Doughty has evolved into one of the best players in the world at his position. What is missing from his dossier is a Norris Trophy, given annually to the top defenseman in the NHL as judged by the Professional Hockey Writers Association.

He is NHL.com's preseason choice for the award in the 2014-15 season.

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
