Restricted free-agent defenseman John Moore has agreed to terms on a contract with the New York Rangers, the team announced Thursday.

No other details were released, but the New York Post reported Wednesday that Moore had signed a one-year, $850,500 contract.

Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne had two surgeries on his hip in the past year, but he's participating in informal skates this week and said he has no restrictions.

I feel like I'm ready to go," Rinne told The Tennessean in remarks published Wednesday. "I still have to pay attention to it, but I don't have to change anything. I don't have to skip any training because of that. It feels normal. I feel like I have the strength back in my legs this summer. It feels great and it's nice not to think about it all the time."

"It would be a great honor. I'd love to be the captain of the Montreal Canadiens," Subban said Tuesday during the NHL Player Media Tour. "I embrace responsibility. ... I've always been a guy who has had to perform for my team. I have always expected that out of myself. It doesn't change anything for me. The only thing that would change is a letter on my jersey, but in Montreal that means something. That means something to the fanbase. That means something to the team."

Montreal has a vacancy at captain after forward Brian Gionta signed with the Buffalo Sabres this offseason as a free agent. Other candidates include forward Max Pacioretty, forward Tomas Plekanec and defenseman Andrei Markov.

"It still doesn't feel 100 percent but I guess these kinds of accidents, or whatever you call it, may take some time," Ericsson told the Red Wings website. "It's been a frustrating summer with the training and all of that because it's hard to hold onto a bar with the weights on. … It was a little frustrating for sure, but I should be fine."

Ericsson missed the final 14 games of the regular season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs after his finger was broken blocking a shot against the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 18. Surgery included four pins to stabilize multiple fractures and repair of a torn tendon.

"My finger was crushed, so it was a lot of pieces that they had to try to puzzle together and I guess some pieces they left out because they were so small," the 30-year-old said. "There were some gaps between some of the bones and it took some time for the bones to heal in those places."

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
