DENVER -- Adam Foote joined an exclusive club Saturday night when his No. 52 jersey was retired and raised to the Pepsi Center rafters in a 30-minute ceremony before the Colorado Avalanche faced the Montreal Canadiens.

Foote later said how appropriate it seemed that a banner holding the former Avalanche defenseman's digits would hang next to those belonging to Ray Bourque, Peter Forsberg, Patrick Roy and Joe Sakic -- all key members of the team's Stanley Cup championship days.

"It's the biggest honor," Foote said after being honored at center ice with his wife, Jennifer, and their two sons, Cal and Nolan. "When these guys played, I looked up to them. I enjoyed watching these guys play. Every night I was a big fan of those guys. When you win a championship you have a special bond with those guys forever."

He will have an MRI on the knee Sunday or Monday, coach Patrick Roy said.

Tanguay was injured on a hard hit into the boards at Pepsi Center.

Tanguay had nine points (three goals) in 12 games this year, tying him for third on the team. He was plus-8 entering the game against Montreal.

COLUMBUS – The city of Columbus is ready to roll out the red carpet for the 2015 NHL All-Star Game.

The League announced Saturday that the midseason showcase will be held Jan. 24-25, 2015, in Nationwide Arena. The weekend will include the NHL All-Star Skills Competition in addition to the All-Star Game.

"It's an opportunity to show off the city to the world," Mayor Michael B. Coleman said. "The best hockey players in the world will be in the city of Columbus. We'll roll out the red carpet. We'll have a great time and people will know what the great city of Columbus is all about."

Commissioner Gary Bettman was in Columbus to make the announcement during the first period of the Blue Jackets' game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

VANCOUVER - Toronto Maple Leafs center Dave Bolland will have surgery Saturday night after the back of his left leg was lacerated by the skate of Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian in the second period of their game.

Coach Randy Carlyle said after the 4-0 loss the cut was similar to the Achilles injury suffered by Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson last season. Karlsson missed 10 weeks.

Bolland was wheeled out of Rogers Arena on a stretcher.

"I don't know the severity or which tendon, but he did suffer a cut into that area," Carlyle said. "He will have surgery to repair that tonight."

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- Pavel Bure lifted a generation of hockey fans out of their seats. On Saturday, the Vancouver Canucks returned the favor, lifting his retired No.10 jersey to the rafters at Rogers Arena.

Bure joined Stan Smyl and former teammates Trevor Linden and Markus Naslund as the only Canucks with their numbers retired.

"I felt like I had to play again," Bure, now 42, said after the ceremony, adding the significance didn't hit home until Wayne Gretzky phoned him earlier in the day. "I was in the middle of the ice and 20,000 people were cheering for me. … It felt like I was playing again."

Chants of "Bure! Bure!" from the sellout crowd greeted Vancouver general manager Mike Gillis as he introduced his former client.


Sabres GM Regier believes Kaleta can change

Saturday, 11.02.2013 / 8:30 PM / News

Joe Yerdon - NHL.com Correspondent

BUFFALO -- Buffalo Sabres general manager Darcy Regier discussed his reasons for placing forward Patrick Kaleta on waivers Saturday, the same day he was eligible to return after serving a 10-game suspension for delivering a head shot to Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson.

"I think there is a significant amount of work that he will have to do to redesign his game in order to give him an opportunity to play," Regier said. "When we talked about it internally, if it was with us, it had to take place in [AHL] Rochester."

WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Jets claimed defenseman Keaton Ellerby off waivers from the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday.

Ellerby, 24, will join a Jets blue line that is missing injured regulars Mark Stuart (hip), Jacob Trouba (neck) and Paul Postma (blood clot). Earlier this week, Winnipeg recalled defensemen Ben Chiarot and Julian Melchiori from the St. John’s IceCaps, their American Hockey League affiliate. Chiarot and Melchiori may make their NHL debuts Saturday when the Jets play the Chicago Blackhawks at MTS Centre.


Jagr growing more confident as Devils win

Saturday, 11.02.2013 / 10:47 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEWARK, N.J. -- New Jersey Devils right wing Jaromir Jagr has a message for the rest of the NHL.

"I feel this year the cockiness is coming back a little bit," Jagr said. "I want to be the best I can be. As long as I stay healthy, I guarantee I'll do the maximum to be the best I can be every night. I like that attitude."

Jagr, 41, is backing up his words with production.

He brings a five-game point-scoring streak into New Jersey's game Saturday against the Philadelphia Flyers at Prudential Center, where the Devils will be trying for their third straight win. Jagr leads the team with 10 points (three goals and seven assists).

But why did it take Jagr until his third season back in the NHL to feel like he has regained his cockiness?


Avalanche set to retire Adam Foote's No. 52

Saturday, 11.02.2013 / 9:00 AM / NHL Insider

Rick Sadowski  -  NHL.com Correspondent

DENVER -- Adam Foote wasn't a prolific scorer or a particularly flashy skater during 19 NHL seasons, but the hard-nosed defenseman was as valuable to the Colorado Avalanche as superstar teammates Joe Sakic, Patrick Roy and Peter Forsberg during the franchise's glory days.

A rugged 6-foot-2, 220 pounds, Foote was the heart and soul of a defense corps that helped the Quebec Nordiques/Avalanche franchise win nine consecutive division titles from 1994 through 2003, along with Stanley Cup championships in 1996 and 2001.

It's why Foote, who retired following the 2010-11 season, will have his No. 52 jersey raised to the rafters Saturday in a pregame ceremony at Pepsi Center before the Avalanche face off against the Montreal Canadiens.
