Islanders to keep logo, uniforms in Brooklyn: report

Tuesday, 06.02.2015 / 11:26 PM / News

The New York Islanders will not change their logo or jerseys when they begin playing at Barclays Center in Brooklyn next season.

"One of the things we wanted to do is reiterate again, because I think fans are still concerned, that the Islanders will keep their iconic logo as well as their primary home and road jerseys," Barclays Center CEO Brett Yormark said Tuesday, according to Newsday.

The jerseys likely will include a commemorative patch for the inaugural season in Brooklyn, according to Yormark, who is in charge of the Islanders' business affairs.

Tuesday, 06.02.2015 / 11:22 PM / News

Adam Oates and Scott Stevens will be considered as assistants under New Jersey Devils coach John Hynes if Oates and Stevens are willing, general manager Ray Shero told on Tuesday.

The website said Oates and Stevens, who finished this season as Devils co-coaches with Lou Lamoriello, each interviewed for the job that went to Hynes, who was introduced Tuesday.

"That is something that will be addressed in terms of assistant coaches, and I haven't gotten that far with John, but they will definitely have that conversation," Shero said after the formal news conference. "That's certainly going to be up to John with his staff."

Petry happy with Canadiens, so didn't test market

MONTREAL -- Defenseman Jeff Petry signed with the Montreal Canadiens before he ever got a chance to test free agency, and his teammates are happy he will prove to be more than a trade-deadline rental.

Petry agreed to terms with Montreal on a six-year, $33 million contract Tuesday, less than a month before he was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent.

The 27-year-old Michigan native had three goals and seven points in 19 games with the Canadiens after he was acquired from the Edmonton Oilers prior to the NHL Trade Deadline on March 2.

"Pretty much all signs pointed towards testing the market, and then once the trade happened and I joined Montreal, the mindset started shifting," Petry said via conference call from his home in West Bloomfield, Mich. "And then as time went on and I got to play in the environment and see how I was valued within the organization, I think that kept pushing things more towards the side of not testing the open market."

Ducks evaluating if Boudreau will return as coach

ANAHEIM -- Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murray said Tuesday he is evaluating whether coach Bruce Boudreau will return next season.

Murray said he was digesting Anaheim's loss to the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final, the third straight season the Ducks lost a Game 7 at home. Whether that is enough to consider changes was left open after Murray was asked if Boudreau would be back.

"With everything, I'm evaluating the whole hockey team, and that's not a yes or a no," Murray said. "I'm evaluating everything. I've got to talk to some players. I've got to evaluate everything, I would assume. I'm not thinking about anything right now. Again, I may sound slow to you guys (reporters), but it takes me a while to sit back and replay everything.

"I do think the coaching staff took some strides this year. I will say I was fairly happy with the overall performance of my coaching staff this year."

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- New York Rangers forward Martin St. Louis said Monday he doesn't know what his future holds, including if he would be playing hockey next season.

St. Louis, 39, will be an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He spoke with reporters three days after the Rangers lost to his former team, the Tampa Bay Lightning, in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.

"As you get older, you always think about the following year, the next year," he said. "For me right now, of course I want to play. I'm not sure which direction this team is going to go in either, so it's tough to comment. I've been blessed to play parts of two years here for a great organization and we'll see where that takes me. The opportunity to play for a Cup last year and one win away again this year … it's an experience I'll never forget."

Quote of the Day

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
