Sharks re-sign forwards Wingels, Sheppard

Tuesday, 07.08.2014 / 8:30 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

NHL.com

The San Jose Sharks signed restricted free-agent forward Tommy Wingels to a three-year contract, the team announced Tuesday. Financial terms were not disclosed but previous media reports placed the total value at $7.4 million.

Wingels set career-highs in goals (16), assists (22), points (38) and plus/minus (plus-11) in 77 games last season. He was fifth on the Sharks in goals, sixth in points, and led them in hits (218) and game-winning goals (seven).

"I'm very excited about committing to the Sharks organization for three more years," Wingels said Tuesday, according to CSN Bay Area. "I'm humbled by the opportunity that [general manager] Doug Wilson has given me. ... I think this team can do a lot of special things and I look forward to being a part of that."

Ducks coach pleased with 'great deal' for Kesler

Tuesday, 07.08.2014 / 8:17 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Anaheim Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau on Tuesday raved about the trade that landed Ryan Kesler from the Vancouver Canucks last month.

"Obviously, as a coach, you're sitting there saying, 'That's a great deal,'" Boudreau told the Ducks website at development camp.

The Ducks acquired Kesler and a third-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft on June 27, sending center Nick Bonino, defenseman Luca Sbisa and a first-round and third-round pick in the 2014 draft to the Canucks.

"I loved Nick Bonino and [Sbisa], but you're getting a top-flight guy that can give [Ryan Getzlaf] a rest every now and then," Boudreau said. "It gives you strength down the middle. I've never coached a team in the NHL that's had a second-line center that you're going to have with Ryan Kesler. It's a great [acquisition], and it gets you excited."

Stars intrigued by Honka's offensive potential

Tuesday, 07.08.2014 / 6:41 PM / NHL Insider

Steve Hunt - NHL.com Correspondent

FRISCO, Texas -- When the Dallas Stars chose defenseman Julius Honka with the 14th pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, they did so knowing the 18-year-old's strengths are on offense.

That makes sense considering Honka had some impressive numbers in 62 games with the Swift Current Broncos of the Western Hockey League last season: 56 points (16 goals, 40 assists) in his first year playing in North America.

It's not surprising to hear him say he models himself after NHL defensemen known for playing a similar game: Drew Doughty of the Los Angeles Kings and Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators.

"Offensive game [is what I bring], absolutely," Honka said at Stars development camp. "I want to be a big part of that game. I like to play on the power play and a lot of offensive game. That's my style of hockey."

Canadiens' Beaulieu aims to build on playoff success

Tuesday, 07.08.2014 / 5:53 PM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

Nathan Beaulieu gave the Montreal Canadiens great bang for their buck during the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. It might have been a glimpse of what kind of value he can provide in 2014-15.

Beaulieu played a shade over 75 minutes in the playoffs, but it could be argued those minutes were a big reason the Canadiens reached the Eastern Conference Final.

Ehlers aims to be Jets' next first-round success story

Tuesday, 07.08.2014 / 4:40 PM / NHL Insider

Patrick Williams - NHL.com Correspondent

WINNIPEG -- Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff and his scouting staff have excelled in the first round of the NHL Draft even as on-ice success has eluded the team since its arrival from Atlanta in 2011.

Two weeks after being hired by the Jets, Cheveldayoff selected center Mark Scheifele with the seventh pick in the first round the 2011 draft. The following year Cheveldayoff picked defenseman Jacob Trouba with the ninth pick, and the Jets continued to rebuild their blue line with Joshua Morrissey as the 13th pick in 2013.

Wennberg back in Columbus, plans to stay

Tuesday, 07.08.2014 / 4:14 PM / NHL Insider

Craig Merz - NHL.com Correspondent

COLUMBUS -- This time, center Alexander Wennberg is hoping to stick with the Columbus Blue Jackets when the NHL season begins.

The smooth center was their first pick (No. 14) in the 2013 NHL Draft and a year ago this week attended development camp at the OhioHealth Ice Haus.

Wennberg was wide-eyed, nervous, curious about the surroundings, and smaller. Neither management nor the Nacka, Sweden native had any expectations he would play in North America during the 2013-14 season.

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
