Tuesday, 11.11.2014 / 4:44 PM / News

NHL.com

The Hamilton Bulldogs, the American Hockey League affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, will honor the late Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and those who serve in the Canadian Armed Forces on Military Appreciation night Dec. 5 in support of the Marcus Cirillo Trust prior to their game against the Toronto Marlies, the AHL affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Bulldogs will wear a special commemorative jersey designed in conjunction with representatives of the Cirillo family and SP Apparel that will pay tribute to Cpl. Cirillo's ceremonial attire. The cap and badge of his regiment will be on the shoulder and pant shell, and above the Bulldogs logo will be a patch that reads, "In Memory of Cpl. Cirillo."

Cirillo was killed Oct. 22 in a shooting at the Canadian War Memorial in Ottawa while standing honor guard.

"We're looking to bring together the Hamilton community to help raise money for Cpl. Cirillo's son, Marcus," Hamilton Bulldogs president Stephen Ostaszewicz said in a statement. "This falls in line with our annual Military Appreciation Night where we honor those that serve in the Canadian Armed Forces."

Penguins' Maatta on ice seven days after surgery

Tuesday, 11.11.2014 / 1:52 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- Nobody around the Pittsburgh Penguins seemed shocked to see defenseman Olli Maatta in full practice gear going onto the ice at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, exactly seven days since he had surgery to remove a potentially cancerous tumor from his thyroid gland.

"I think this is what they expected, but obviously with Olli you feel it's going to be earlier with him," Penguins captain Sidney Crosby said. "That's what we've gotten used to with the way he works and the way he heals."

Maatta skated on his own following the morning skate. At the time of his surgery it was expected he would miss four weeks. Penguins coach Mike Johnston did not deviate from that timeline when he spoke about Maatta Tuesday morning.

"We'll see what happens as far as a timeline goes for him participating with the whole team, but it really is amazing how he handles things," Johnston said. "I just think for a young kid it's more the mental side of things, how mature he is and how he's able to deal with issues like that."

Minnesota Wild goaltender Josh Harding, forward Zach Parise and defenseman Jared Spurgeon each returned to practice Monday wearing red non-contact jerseys.

Harding was cleared to practice Sunday, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. He skated with the Wild for the first time since breaking his ankle before the start of training camp, but there remains no timetable for his return.

"It was great seeing all the guys again and getting that competition back," Harding told the Star Tribune. "Just challenging yourself to stop every shot, just going out there and doing your job. This was another step. Whatever I can do to help this team out, that's the next step."

Canadiens assign forward Rene Bourque to AHL

Monday, 11.10.2014 / 4:28 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- The criticism of Rene Bourque has always come with a caveat.

That toolbox.

The 6-foot-2, 214-pound frame, the quickness, the shot, all of it says "NHL power forward," and because that is such a rare commodity Bourque's shortcomings have often been tolerated for longer than they would for most players.

On Monday, however, the Montreal Canadiens ran out of patience.

After clearing waivers at noon Monday, Bourque was sent to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League by the Canadiens after he got off to a tepid start to the 2014-15 season.

With no goals, two assists and a minus-9 differential in 13 games, Canadiens coach Michel Therrien made Bourque a healthy scratch the past two games, and Montreal won both of them with rookie Jiri Sekac taking Bourque’s spot alongside Lars Eller and Brandon Prust and energizing the third line.

NEW YORKCalgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano, Ottawa Senators goaltender Craig Anderson and St. Louis Blues right wing Vladimir Tarasenko have been named the NHL's "Three Stars" for the week ending Nov. 9.

FIRST STAR – MARK GIORDANO, D, CALGARY FLAMES

Giordano led the NHL with seven points (2-5-7) to power the Flames (9-5-2, 20 points) to two wins in three contests. He opened the week with 1-1-2, including an assist on Sean Monahan's overtime winner, in a 4-3 triumph over the Washington Capitals Nov. 4. Giordano followed that up with a pair of assists in a 5-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning Nov. 6. He then capped the week with 1-2-3, matching a career high for points in one game, in a 6-4 win over the Florida Panthers Nov. 8. The 31-year-old Toronto, Ont., native currently has 4-7-11 during a six-game point streak, including multi-point performances in each of his last four outings (one game shy of the club record for a defenseman). Giordano also leads all blueliners with 5-13-18 in 16 games this season; he is just the fifth defenseman since 2005-06 to record at least 18 points through his team's first 16 games of the season.
