Capitals hire Korn to be new goaltending coach

Tuesday, 06.24.2014 / 3:58 PM / News


Mitch Korn is the new goaltending coach of the Washington Capitals, the team announced on Tuesday. He rejoins incoming coach Barry Trotz; the two worked together on the Nashville Predators' coaching staff for the past 15 seasons.

"I am very pleased to join the Washington Capitals and continue to work alongside Barry Trotz," Korn said. "I look forward to working with all of the talented goaltenders in the organization and helping them improve and succeed on the ice. I want to thank the Nashville Predators for a great 16 years and wish them the very best in the future."

Korn, 56, replaces longtime Capitals goalie Olie Kolzig, who after the 2013-14 season decided to not continue on as a full-time goaltending coach, citing family reasons. Korn and Kolzig are currently discussing Kolzig's involvement with the organization moving forward.

Terry will make $600,000 at the NHL level or $300,000 at the American Hockey League level.

Terry, 25, played 10 games for the Hurricanes this season. He had the winning shootout goal Nov. 15 against the Anaheim Ducks and also scored his first two NHL points, both assists, on April 3 against the Dallas Stars.

Tuesday, 06.24.2014 / 10:50 AM / News


The Boston Bruins have signed goaltender Niklas Svedberg to a one-year, one-way contract, general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Monday.

The one-way deal effectively makes the Swedish goaltender the backup to starter Tuukka Rask next season, meaning Chad Johnson is not expected to return to the Bruins when he becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Svedberg will earn $600,000 in 2014-15.

The wins and games played were career highs for McElhinney, a sixth-round pick (No. 176) of the Calgary Flames in the 2002 NHL Draft.

Canucks hire Desjardins as coach

Monday, 06.23.2014 / 7:55 PM / News

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- When Willie Desjardins asked his wife to marry him, it was with the promise he would be an NHL head coach.

He finally made good on that pledge Monday, when the Vancouver Canucks introduced the 57-year-old to replace John Tortorella.

"I was trying to talk her into marrying me and I said, 'Rhonda, I am going to be an NHL coach,'" Desjardins said. "I just didn't tell her it was going to take 25 years, so I fooled her a little bit."

Desjardins admitted there were times during nearly three decades of coaching that he wondered if he'd be able to keep the promise.

"Yeah, for sure there had to be doubts. Once you pass 40, you probably wonder if your chance is going to come," he said. "I have been looking forward to this opportunity for a long time."

The Canucks are hoping the wait was worth it for them too, especially after a disastrous first season under Tortorella that ended with the team missing the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Tortorella was fired on May 1.


New contracts expected for Toews, Kane: report

Monday, 06.23.2014 / 6:58 PM / News


Chicago Blackhawks center Jonathan Toews and right wing Patrick Kane are signed through next season, but a new contract for each could be signed as early as next week, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Monday.

Toews and Kane each signed five-year contracts with Chicago on Dec. 3, 2009, and the Sun-Times reported they very well may agree to new deals on the same day again. Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman told the newspaper earlier this month that he would like to have both players signed by July 1.

"We've been kind of going hand-in-hand almost our entire careers," Toews said from Las Vegas on Monday. Toews is in Las Vegas for the 2014 NHL Awards Show on Tuesday. "When we came in as rookies, and we've just been included in the same discussion for a lot of things, namely our second contract, and probably this time again. The chances of that are good. But at the end of the day, he's got his own needs and his own family, and you have to respect that as well."


Canadiens' Markov signs three-year extension

Monday, 06.23.2014 / 6:22 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

Some players dream of the day they finally reach unrestricted free agency.

The very thought of reaching it for the first time in his career was making Andrei Markov cringe.

Defense - MTL
GOALS: 7 | ASST: 36 | PTS: 43
SOG: 131 | +/-: 12
The Montreal Canadiens defenseman avoided having to think about what would happen July 1 by agreeing to a three-year contract extension Monday with the only NHL team he has ever played for.

"I'm glad that deal is done," Markov said in a conference call with reporters. "I was a little bit nervous when the time was getting close to July 1. I knew I wanted to stay in Montreal, and I had a feeling it was going to happen."

Financial terms were not released, but Markov's new contract reportedly has an average annual value of $5.75 million with a full no-trade clause the first year and a limited no-trade after that.
