The Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday assigned defenseman Jarred Tinordi to Hamilton of the American Hockey League.

The Canadiens acquired veteran defenseman Sergei Gonchar on Tuesday in a trade with the Dallas Stars, making it likely either Tinordi or another young defenseman, Nathan Beaulieu, would be sent to the AHL.

Tinordi, a first-round pick (No. 22) by the Canadiens in the 2010 NHL Draft, had two assists in nine games this season. He has six assists in 39 games over three seasons with Montreal.

NHL teams pay tribute to military service

Tuesday, 11.11.2014 / 8:38 PM / News

NHL.com

St. Louis Blues goaltender Brian Elliott wore a special mask Tuesday for the game against the Buffalo Sabres at Scottrade Center, one of many tributes to the military being performed by teams and players across the NHL this week.

The mask, adorned with images of soldiers, the stars and stripes of the American flag, and the maple leaf of the Canadian flag, was given to Elliott after practice Monday by Charles Rohde, 92, a World War II veteran. Rohde participated in the pregame ceremony, next to Elliott.

"It's definitely an honor getting [the mask] from Mr. Rohde, someone that's been through something that we've only read [about] in books," Elliott told the Blues website. "He's a hero. It's an honor to be in his presence, for sure."

Tuesday is Veterans Day in America and Remembrance Day in Canada. Like the Blues, teams across the NHL have been and will be paying tribute with Military Appreciation nights.

Stars trade Gonchar to Canadiens for Moen

Tuesday, 11.11.2014 / 6:54 PM / News

NHL.com

The Dallas Stars traded defenseman Sergei Gonchar to the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday for forward Travis Moen, a transaction involving two veteran players whose roles had diminished with their previous team.

Gonchar, who turns 41 in April, appeared in three games for the Stars this season and averaged slightly more than 13 minutes of ice time per game. He is in the final year of a contract with an average annual value of $5 million.

The trade frees up a significant amount of NHL salary-cap space in 2014-15 for the Stars, who could look to ease the burden being placed on their top-four defensemen by acquiring outside help.

"We're open to [another move]," Stars general manager Jim Nill said. "But my first thought process here, and [coach] Lindy [Ruff], sitting down with him and our management and coaching staff, is that we have to find out internally what we have first. That's what this trade allows us to do now. … We have some young defensemen coming up and they've earned the right for the opportunity. These are guys that have been playing the last two or three years, they won the Calder Cup. I needed to start opening up some doors and some opportunities for them."

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."
