Sundin being added to Maple Leafs' Legends Row

Thursday, 09.10.2015 / 9:15 PM / News

On Saturday, former Leaf defenceman Borje Salming will be inducted into the Toronto Maple Leafs ‘Legends Row’. On Thursday night, the team announced that his fellow countryman, Mats Sundin, would be added to the monument alongside him.

Acquired in a trade with the Quebec Nordiques on June 28, 1994, after originally being drafted first overall in the 1989 NHL draft, Sundin would spend 13 seasons in a Maple Leafs uniform scoring more goals (420) and points (987) than any other player in the historic team’s record books. His quiet leadership and strong work ethic were only matched by his prolific scoring ability during his 11 years as Leafs captain. Following his retirement in 2009, Sundin was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2012, his first season of eligibility, and became just the second Swedish-born player, following Salming, to join the Hall.

Canadiens candidates give thoughts on captaincy

Thursday, 09.10.2015 / 8:10 PM / News

The Montreal Canadiens will have a captain this season, but in saying so Thursday coach Michel Therrien did not reveal who it would be.

The Canadiens used four alternate captains last season: defensemen Andrei Markov and P.K. Subban, and forwards Max Pacioretty and Tomas Plekanec.

"I thought those guys last year did a fantastic job, they had good communication," Therrien told the Canadiens website. "I thought it went really well. But we believe this is the time for the organization to name a captain."

The Canadiens would not say if one of those four players will be named captain or if there might be another candidate.

Here's what each of the four alternates from last season told CBC at the Canadiens' annual charity golf tournament on Thursday:

LAVAL, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens left wing Max Pacioretty isn't sure if he will be healthy to start the regular season, but he is comfortable saying that his recovery from fractures in the tibial plateau below his left knee are progressing well.

The Canadiens said Pacioretty, who was injured July 9, would need 12 weeks to recover, a time frame that would end six days before Montreal opens the 2015-16 season Oct. 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"Obviously I don't know how far along I am, but I know that strength-wise and mobility-wise I feel very good," Pacioretty said Thursday at the Canadiens' annual charity golf tournament. "Now it just depends on the bone healing, and that's something that can only be determined through scans. So that's how we're keeping up with it, with the scans to see the progression."

Tampa Bay Lightning forward Tyler Johnson said Wednesday his injured right wrist is not completely healed and he is unsure if he will miss any time during training camp.

"It's progressing; I don't know if I would say that it's 100 percent, but it's getting there," Johnson told The Tampa Tribune. "It feels better every day, so it's one of those things now that it just keeps getting strength and it feels better."

Johnson wore a brace on the wrist that was fractured in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Chicago Blackhawks in June. The injury did not require surgery, and he went without the brace in mid-August.
