NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils co-owner Josh Harris said Friday he has every intention of contacting Lou Lamoriello to extend an invitation to attend the jersey retirement ceremony for goaltender Martin Brodeur on Feb. 9 at Prudential Center.

Lamoriello was Devils general manager for 28 seasons before joining the Toronto Maple Leafs on July 23. He was the architect of the three Stanley Cup championships with Brodeur, whose No. 30 will be retired prior to a game against the Edmonton Oilers.

"The situation with [Lamoriello] is great," Harris said. "There is no animosity on any side. Lou made a decision to go in a different direction with his career and we supported that and he supported us. So for sure Lou will be invited to that ceremony and it'll be up to him whether he attends."

Kinsey Janke - For

For the first time, the American Hockey League's opening night will include California-based franchises when the league's 80th season starts Friday.

First announced in January, the formation of the Pacific Division was a project with many moving parts, and an initiative with multiple outcomes that will benefit the long-term future of hockey in North America. It speaks volumes to the crucial role the AHL plays in professional player development, as well as to the growth and support that the game of hockey has been experiencing on the West Coast.

"The importance of the AHL's new Pacific Division to western-based clubs cannot be overstated," San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson said. "The moves eliminate cross-country travel for players being recalled and re-assigned, and allows our entire hockey staff to monitor and take part in each player's growth and development."

Paul Harris - Correspondent

DETROIT -- When Mike Babcock left as coach of the Detroit Red Wings to become coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs, he felt Jeff Blashill was the right person to replace him.

Now, as Blashill prepares to make his NHL coaching debut with the Red Wings against Babcock's Maple Leafs on Friday (7:30 p.m. ET; TVA Sports, SN1), his opinion hasn't changed.

"He's the Detroit Red Wings coach and he should be the Detroit Red Wings coach," Babcock said. "He's done a lot of things to get to where he is. … He's a smart guy, presents well and he has been taught well."

NEWARK, N.J. -- Defenseman Andy Greene was named captain of the New Jersey Devils on Friday.

Forwards Patrik Elias, Travis Zajac, Mike Cammalleri and Adam Henrique will serve as alternate captains on a rotating basis based on home and away games.

He was given the news by general manager Ray Shero and coach John Hynes after practice Thursday and will wear the "C" for the first time when the Devils open the season at home against the Winnipeg Jets (7 p.m.; TSN3, MSG+ 2).

Greene replaces Bryce Salvador, who was captain from 2012-13 until he retired Sept. 2.

"I think I'll just go about my business the same way I've always gone," Greene said. "Be the same player and person. It's a letter. But I'll continue to play and be that same player."

Fantasy Friday: Rookies making noise early on

Matt Cubeta - Fantasy Insider

Two days are in the books for the NHL and fantasy hockey owners. Despite the small sample size, we've seen plenty of exciting action so far.

Here are the most notable takeaways from a fantasy standpoint.


Joe Pavelski, Zach Parise and Daniel Sedin are the top fantasy skaters to this point. Pavelski and Sedin each had one goal, two assists, a plus-3 rating and seven shots on goal in their first games on Wednesday. Parise had the seasons first hat trick, scoring three goals on six shots in the Minnesota Wild's opener against the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday. There's no doubting Pavelski's abilities after what he did last season (37 goals, 70 points), but it's good to see Sedin get off to a good start. As for Parise, he was the 22nd best fantasy player in Yahoo leagues last season and could be primed for another big season.
