Blue Jackets GM turns up heat on Johansen: report

Tuesday, 09.16.2014 / 9:48 AM / News

NHL.com

Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen had some strong words for unsigned forward Ryan Johansen on Monday.

Speaking at the prospect tournament in Traverse City, Mich., Kekalainen urged his star center not to miss the start of training camp, which begins with physicals on Thursday.

"Our success is going to come from being a team, not a bunch of individuals or stars, or whatever," Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch "We're not a star-studded team. To me it's huge that you go through training camp together and get ready."

Canadiens opt for four alternate captains this season

Monday, 09.15.2014 / 5:58 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

LAVAL, Quebec -- The general consensus among fans and media attempting to handicap who would become the next captain of the Montreal Canadiens was that there were four primary candidates for the job.

The debate over which of those four would land the role became perhaps the most popular topic of conversation in Montreal during the past six weeks, with each of the top candidates having his fair share of supporters.

As it turns out, the Canadiens had trouble deciding as well.

So instead of naming a captain, the team announced Monday that defensemen Andrei Markov and P.K. Subban and forwards Max Pacioretty and Tomas Plekanec each will serve as alternate captains for the 2014-15 season, and the captaincy issue will be revisited next summer.

Red Wings not expecting Alfredsson at camp: report

Monday, 09.15.2014 / 3:11 PM / News

NHL.com

The Detroit Red Wings don't expect forward Daniel Alfredsson to be present when training camp opens, the Detroit Free Press reported Monday.

Alfredsson hasn't skated in 10 days due to problems with his back. He also has yet to take part in any of the informal workouts with players.

"The setback is a little bigger than Alfie [Alfredsson] thought," Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told the Free Press. "I know he still wants to give himself every opportunity to see if his body will allow him to play. We're going to be patient, give him the time to make his decision.

"At this point, I don't expect him to be coming to camp."

Bruins hope to have Krug, Smith signed before camp

Monday, 09.15.2014 / 3:07 PM / News

NHL.com

Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said he still hopes to have new contracts in place with entry-level free agents Torey Krug and Reilly Smith before training camp starts Thursday.

"I'm not going to comment on negotiations," Chiarelli told the Bruins website in Antioch, Tenn., where he is with Bruins rookies at a tournament that also includes the Nashville Predators, Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers. "I hope to have them at camp. I can't give you any more clarity."

Krug tied for the lead among Bruins defensemen last season with 40 points, and his 14 goals were second among Boston defenders to the Zdeno Chara's 17. Smith had 20 goals and 51 points in his first full NHL season, and teamed with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand to form a strong second line.

Bruins' Lucic: Wrist improving, but not 100 percent

Monday, 09.15.2014 / 1:43 PM / News

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The Boston Bruins' loss to the Montreal Canadiens in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Second Round last May came at a cost even greater than the Presidents' Trophy winners not reaching their ultimate goal of a Stanley Cup championship.

Early in that game, forward Milan Lucic jammed his left wrist. A couple days later he was wearing a soft cast. After an MRI, it was determined he needed surgery, which took place in late May.

With Bruins players scheduled to report for physicals and off-ice testing at training camp Thursday, Lucic is encouraged by the progress he's made in his attempt to return from the injury. But he's still not at full strength.

McDonagh ready to be Rangers captain: report

Sunday, 09.14.2014 / 5:20 PM / News

NHL.com

Ryan McDonagh is ready to be captain of the New York Rangers, the defenseman told the New York Daily News.

The Rangers have been without a captain since trading Ryan Callahan to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Martin St. Louis on March 5.

"I think I've progressed into being a go-to guy, someone teammates can look up to and someone they can count on,” McDonagh told Pat Leonard of the Daily News on Friday. "I think guys see I'm willing to do whatever it takes to win… [Being captain] is a big responsibility, too. It's not just about on the ice but how you carry yourself off of it and represent the organization."

Quote of the Day

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
