ANAHEIM -- The Anaheim Ducks announced Tuesday they will retain coach Bruce Boudreau but assistant coach Brad Lauer will not return next season.

It was the only staff change made by Anaheim general manager Bob Murray, who earlier this month was non-committal about the return of Boudreau before he completed his evaluation of players and staff.

"We’ve spent the last week evaluating everything from top to bottom, including all player and staff performance," Murray said in a statement. "This process is something I believe is essential each and every year, no matter the results of the season. We’ve decided to refocus and change the responsibilities of one of the assistant coach positions. We want to thank Brad Lauer for his hard work and dedication, and we wish him the best of luck in the future."

Mike "Doc" Emrick, the voice of the NHL on NBC, will receive the Vin Scully Lifetime Achievement Award in Sports Broadcasting on Nov. 2 from WFUV Radio in New York, the radio station announced Tuesday.

Emrick has been the primary play-by-play man for NBC since 2011 and has called more than 3,000 games in his 39 years covering professional hockey, including 32 in the NHL. He received the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award from the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2008 and became the first broadcaster inducted into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame in 2012. Emrick also has won two Emmy awards (2010 and 2013) for best sports play-by-play personality, the first hockey announcer to do so.

Detroit Red Wings hire Jeff Blashill as coach

DETROIT -- There was never another candidate to become Detroit Red Wings coach.

General manager Ken Holland decided last year that Jeff Blashill would be the choice if Mike Babcock chose to go elsewhere.

And Blashill, 41, was introduced as Red Wings coach Tuesday at a press conference at Joe Louis Arena. He is the NHL's second-youngest coach behind John Hynes of the New Jersey Devils, who was hired this month.

"I'm going on my instinct," Holland said. "He's a great young coach who is ready to coach in the NHL."

Blashill's contract is for four years, Holland said. Blashill replaces Babcock, who was hired to coach the Toronto Maple Leafs on May 20 after 10 seasons with Detroit.

Gordie Howe is "comfortable and happy" after he received a second stem-cell treatment at a clinic in Mexico on Monday, The Hockey News reported.

Howe, 87, had a series of strokes in 2014, including a major one in October.

"Our dad continues to participate in a clinical trial where stem cells are being used in the treatment of a stroke," son Murray Howe told The Hockey News. "We'd like to wait until the first phase of that clinical trial is complete before providing any more updates. At this time, our dad is comfortable and happy. That remains our goal. We want to thank everyone for their ongoing support for Mr. Hockey."

Maple Leafs open to trading players, maybe Kessel

Monday, 06.08.2015 / 7:35 PM / News

Toronto Maple Leafs assistant general manager Kyle Dubas said Monday that trade talks were furthered at the NHL Scouting Combine, and reports are that forward Phil Kessel is involved.

"Last week at the Combine, we started to have a lot more conversation with other teams, and chatter starts to pick up; that's just the way it goes," Dubas said. "… I didn't know that until we got there last week, and you start to feel your way around and start to see that other teams are starting to talk now that the [NHL Draft] is coming up, the salary cap is starting to be set."

The combine for draft prospects, held in Buffalo, ended Saturday. Sportsnet reported trade discussions for Kessel picked up over the weekend, and that the Maple Leafs could be seeking draft picks and prospects for the 27-year-old right wing.

Dubas was asked about Kessel twice during a media availability Monday but did not address him specifically.

"In any trade we are talking about -- and I won't get into specific players and rumors -- any trade that were going to be making, we're going to be looking to add as much as we can back to the organization," Dubas said. "That's not to say we won't be looking for good present-day players. We can't just lose year after year. That's not the plan to lose, that just brings up our players in a losing environment and that's not good."

That group is not satisfied until we win a Stanley Cup. When we do win that Stanley Cup, I don't think we'll be satisfied then either. We're going to want another one. We have the group to do it. We have all the pieces. We just need to put them together.
