Tapped In: Rookie Krug finding Boston to his liking

Saturday, 04.12.2014 / 3:00 AM / Tapped In

Kathryn Tappen - NHL.com Contributor

NHL fans may not have known the name Torey Krug prior to the Stanley Cup Playoffs last spring, but they certainly do now. The Boston Bruins defenseman made his mark after being called up from their American Hockey League team, the Providence Bruins, in the 2013 postseason, when Krug became the first rookie defenseman in the history of the NHL to score four goals in his first five playoff games. Hoping to make another long postseason run, Krug shared what he’s thinking this year, how he endeared himself to his new teammates early on, and what his biggest role is in the locker room.

Kathryn Tappen: First off, happy birthday! April 12 is a good day.

Torey Krug: Thanks, 23. I’m getting old!

KT: What’s this I hear you are in charge of bringing magazines to the rink every month? What are the job requirements for that gig?

TK: [laughs] That’s a rookie duty. You got to make sure the guys are entertained. I bring magazines like Men’s Fitness, the fashion magazines. Guys are into the muscle cars, and any time you bring Golf Digest it will capture the guys’ attention.

Trevor Daley happy to be back in playoffs with Stars

Saturday, 04.12.2014 / 1:22 AM / News

Steve Hunt - NHL.com Correspondent

DALLAS -- It's been quite a while since Trevor Daley experienced playoff hockey -- six years to be exact. He's the longest-tenured member of the Dallas Stars and the only player on the current roster who was a member of the last Dallas team to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, in 2008. So the sense of relief he expressed following a 3-0 playoff-clinching win against the St. Louis Blues on Friday night was understandable.

"It's a great feeling," Daley said. "We've been battling hard for a long time. It's just kind of like a little bit of a relief and we could go in knowing that the next game that we're in and get ready for the playoffs.

Playing in Devils' finale could be up to Brodeur

Martin Brodeur
Goalie - NJD
RECORD: 18-14-6
GAA: 2.52 | SVP: 0.901

NEWARK, N.J. -- The chances New Jersey Devils goalie Martin Brodeur will get one final start before the conclusion of the season look pretty good.

At least that's what Devils coach Peter DeBoer would like to see transpire Sunday when the Devils close their 2013-14 schedule against the Boston Bruins at Prudential Center.

It will give fans one more opportunity to chant Brodeur's name and applaud the effort one final time if it is his curtain call for the only organization he's played for the past 20 seasons.

"Every time I play it could be my last game," Brodeur said following a 3-2 shootout loss to the New York Islanders on Friday. "That's the way I kind of approach it."

BC stars Gaudreau and Arnold sign with Flames

Friday, 04.11.2014 / 11:19 PM / News

Boston College teammates Johnny Gaudreau and Bill Arnold signed entry-level contracts with the Calgary Flames on Friday following the conclusion of their NCAA careers. The signings were announced after Gaudreau was named the winner of the Hobey Baker Award, given each year to the top player in Division I.

Gaudreau, a fourth-round pick (No. 104) in the 2011 NHL Draft, led the NCAA with 36 goals, 44 assists and 80 points. The 5-foot-7, 150-pound junior forward had a goal and two assists Thursday, when the Eagles lost 5-4 to Union College in the semifinals at the Frozen Four.

Arnold, a senior, was a fourth-round pick (No. 8) by the Flames in 2010. He had 14 goals and 53 points for BC this season, much of which was spent on a line centering for Gaudreau and Kevin Hayes, the Chicago Blackhawks' first pick (No. 24) in 2010.

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- Glenn "Chico" Resch announced Friday he is retiring as New Jersey Devils television analyst on MSG Networks after 18 seasons.

Resch, 65, acknowledged during the first intermission of the game against the New York Islanders that his sister-in-law being ill in Minnesota prompted his decision to be with his wife, Diane. His final telecast will be Sunday afternoon when the Devils host the Boston Bruins.

"I never thought of this as a profession because at the end of the day I'm talking about hockey, a sport that I love and have a tremendous amount of respect for," Resch said. "That's why I've always had a special relationship with the people watching on TV and cheering in the arena; I'm an extension of them. I've been lucky to do this for 18 years and I've enjoyed every handshake and conversation I've ever had with Devils fans."

BC's Gaudreau wins Hobey Baker, signs with Flames

Friday, 04.11.2014 / 7:02 PM / News

Bob Snow - NHL.com Correspondent

PHILADELPHIA -- Boston College junior forward Johnny Gaudreau didn't have to go far from home to pick up the 2014 Hobey Baker Award, and he won't be back to try for another one.

The native of nearby Carneys Point, N.J., on Friday became the first BC player since defenseman Mike Mottau in 2000 to receive the award, given to the top player in NCAA hockey. It's named in honor of Baker, a former Princeton star who was killed in a flight-training accident in World War I after a stellar college career.

Gaudreau was a fourth-round pick by the Calgary Flames in the 2011 NHL Draft and signed with the team moments after picking up the trophy.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
