Top '14 picks among WJC summer camp participants

Thursday, 07.31.2014 / 3:47 PM / Prospects

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Two players taken in the first round of the 2014 NHL Draft will be among the European players taking part in the USA Hockey national junior evaluation camp being held Aug. 2-9 in Lake Placid, N.Y.

The camp is one of the first steps toward building the teams that will play in the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Among the players taking part for defending gold medalist Finland is forward Kasperi Kapanen, who plays for KalPa in Liiga, Finland's top professional league. He was picked by the Pittsburgh Penguins with the 22nd pick in the first round.

Kapanen likely would have been on the team that won the tournament last year were it not for a shoulder injury that sidelined him for a month.

Daniel Lacroix has been hired as an assistant coach by the Montreal Canadiens, the team announced Wednesday.

The Montreal native spent the past eight seasons working as an assistant coach, including last season with the New York Rangers, who advanced to the Stanley Cup Final. Lacroix spent three seasons on the Tampa Bay Lightning coaching staff, was with Montreal's American Hockey League affiliate in Hamilton in 2009-10, and coached three seasons with the New York Islanders.

He will be located behind the bench during games after working from the press box for New York.

"To have a chance to join a team like this and a staff like this is great," Lacroix told the Canadiens website. "It’s just a step up. It’s an opportunity to work for a great organization and an opportunity to work with great people. It's an opportunity to get back behind the bench, get closer to the action and have a bigger role on a day-to-day basis."

Gardiner happy to stay with Carlyle, Maple Leafs

Wednesday, 07.30.2014 / 7:23 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Defenseman Jake Gardiner understands what coach Randy Carlyle was trying to do, so much so he signed a five-year contract to stay with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"He is a coach that likes to push his players and get the most out of them," Gardiner told the Toronto Star on Wednesday. "I think that was what he was doing with me.

"I have a lot more potential than what I've been doing. I think [his approach was] good for me. It will help me down the road."

Devils GM Lamoriello not surprised Brodeur available

Wednesday, 07.30.2014 / 5:44 PM / News

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

New Jersey Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello acknowledged Wednesday that he isn't surprised unrestricted free-agent goalie Martin Brodeur has yet to sign a contract with a new team.

"When you've been in the game for as long as I have, you're not surprised at anything," Lamoriello told reporters after announcing the signing of defenseman Andy Greene to a multiyear contract extension.

The seven-year extension given to Cory Schneider earlier this month and the signing of veteran Scott Clemmensen on July 1 seemingly have closed the book on Brodeur's career with the Devils. Schneider will be the Devils' starting goalie in 2014-15 and Brodeur, who still considers himself a No. 1 at age 42, has no interest in playing 20-25 games.

The Detroit Red Wings have hired Jim Hiller and Andrew Brewer as assistant coaches under Mike Babcock, the team announced Wednesday.

Hiller had been coach of the Tri-City Americans of the Western Hockey League since the 2009-10 season. In 2011-12 he won the WHL coach of the year award and the Brian Kilrea Award as coach of the year in the Canadian Hockey League.

"It's awfully exciting," Hiller told MLive.com. "I spent a lot of time in juniors, always with an eye on the NHL. Had a chance to start discussing with Mike about the opportunity and couldn't be happier that my first opportunity is with a guy like Mike. I don't know if there's any better guy to start with."

Devils sign Greene to multiyear contract extension

Andy Greene
Defense - NJD
GOALS: 8 | ASST: 24 | PTS: 32
SOG: 134 | +/-: 3
New Jersey Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello believes veteran defenseman Andy Greene should be considered among the premier players at his position in the NHL.

The Devils showed that faith Wednesday when they signed Greene, 31, to a multiyear contract extension. No terms were announced, but Northjersey.com reports it is for five years, $25 million.

"Andy has evolved into an all-situation player and that's a tremendous compliment because there are very few in the League that you can say are all-situation players," Lamoriello said. "He can also play both left and right, depending on what is asked of him.

"Andy comes to the rink, does his job day in and day out, and never takes a practice off, never looks left or right, and is always focused on what he's doing. To me, that's a top-flight defenseman."

Rangers' Talbot aims to show rookie season no fluke

Wednesday, 07.30.2014 / 3:30 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Cam Talbot came to New York Rangers training camp last September trying to prove he was an NHL-caliber goaltender. He'll be back this September trying to show his performance as Henrik Lundqvist's backup in 2013-14 was no fluke.

Talbot got his first chance to play in the NHL last October as a 26-year-old rookie after Martin Biron retired, and he made the most of it. The former Alabama-Huntsville goaltender went 12-6-1 with a 1.64 goals-against average, a save percentage of .941 and three shutouts.

He told BlueshirtsUnited.com his goal for this season is to show he's not a one-hit wonder.

"I think the last few years I've come into camp in good shape and I've been fairly ready, but they've had two pretty good goalies ahead of me and it wasn't my time," Talbot said. "This year coming up, I have to prove that last year wasn't a fluke. I think a lot of people are going to think I came in and played a little bit beyond my range last year, and it's my goal to go out and prove them wrong."
