Niedermayer, Hasek, Reichel to enter IIHF Hall of Fame

Scott Niedermayer, Dominik Hasek and Robert Reichel are among a class of seven to be inducted into the International Ice Hockey Federation Hall of Fame next May in Prague, the IIHF announced on its website Thursday.

Niedermayer, a four-time Stanley Cup champion with the New Jersey Devils and Anaheim Ducks, was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2013.

He also won the 2004 World Cup of Hockey with Canada.

Hasek, a member of the 2014 Hockey Hall of Fame class, may be best remembered in the Czech Republic for his performance at the 1998 Nagano Olympics, when he led his country with a shootout win against Canada in the semifinals and shut out Russia 1-0 in the gold-medal game. Hasek was one of the preeminent NHL goalies of his era, winning the Vezina Trophy six times, five with the Buffalo Sabres, and the Stanley Cup twice with the Detroit Red Wings.

Hello everyone.

You can be certain that our grandfather, had he been with us today, wouldn't have addressed all of you without first expressing his deepest gratitude for the many heartwarming tributes that were shared over the past few days. We would like to take this moment, first and foremost, to say a special thanks to all of you.

Thank you to all his fans for their passion and kindness. He respected all of you unconditionally. Thank you to all of the doctors who treated him over all these years: Dr. Douglas Kinnear, Dr. David Mulder, Dr. Maurice Godin, Dr. Michael Churchill-Smith, Dr. Robert Côté and Dr. Pierre Lanouette. You were a source of infinite support for our family, and you have his most sincere admiration. A big thank you to the members of the nursing staff who watched over our grandfather with gentleness and care until his last day. Thank you to the Montreal Canadiens organization, the Molson family, and every person who worked so hard to present such memorable tribute ceremonies. We also wish to thank Suzanne Pelletier and the staff at the Urgel Bourgie funeral complex in Longueuil, who took care of him with compassion and dedication, even after his death.

After surrendering the tying goal with 8:21 left in regulation, Loui Eriksson (1-1-2) netted his seventh career overtime (WATCH) goal to lift the Boston Bruins to a 3-2 win against the Minnesota Wild.

* Eriksson's overtime tally was his first with a team other than Dallas, where he played from 2006-2013 and scored his first six career overtime goals (first: Dec. 16, 2008). According to Elias Sports Bureau, since the 2008-09 season, only Alex Ovechkin (10) and Steven Stamkos (8) have more overtime tallies than Eriksson.

* Rookie netminder Niklas Svedberg stopped 35 shots, including all 20 he faced in the second period. Per Elias, Svedberg is the first rookie goalie to stop 20 shots in one period for the Bruins since Oct. 27, 2005 when Hannu Toivonen denied 20 shots in the second period of a 36-save victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs.


Hartley, with extension, focused on Flames' rebuild

Wednesday, 12.17.2014 / 7:51 PM / News

CALGARY -- Bob Hartley is committed. So are the Calgary Flames.

Hartley, who has coached Calgary to a 71-79-13 record over two-plus seasons, has signed a multiyear contract extension, it was announced Wednesday.

"I'm coaching hockey because it's my passion, it's what I like the most," said Hartley, whose contract was to expire at the end of this season. "I wanted to be here, I'm a coach, but I wear the 'Flaming C' with lots of pride. There was not a second, not a minute that I didn't want to continue what we started. It was not the term and it was not about money, it was about getting the opportunity to keep growing in this organization, to keep working with the players we have.

"I've said it many times: I feel very fortunate to be working not only with good players but good people, and that makes our job very enjoyable. Tomorrow it's back to daily business, which is what I love the most. Let's go win some hockey games."

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
