Wednesday, 08.12.2015 / 3:31 PM / News

The New Jersey Devils may play this season without a captain, general manager Ray Shero told on Wednesday.

"There is no rush for this. I'm not sure we'll have one," Shero said. "Maybe we will. I don't want to paint myself into a corner by saying we'll have one and we don't, or we won't have one and we do.

"If we choose a captain it will be a combination of the head coach [John Hynes] and myself. If we pick one out, it will be after due consideration. And hopefully it will be the right choice."

TERREBONNE, Quebec -- Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty's rehabilitation from a knee injury sustained last month is on schedule, according to coach Michel Therrien and Pacioretty's agent, Pat Brisson.

"Everything's going well with his rehab, honestly, so we're happy," Therrien said Tuesday at his annual charity golf tournament. "It's unfortunate [he got injured], but he's still able to train even if he's limited in the exercises he can do."

The Canadiens announced July 10 that Pacioretty would need 12 weeks to recover from the injury he sustained while working out in Florida. The timeline would have Pacioretty returning a few days prior to the Canadiens' 2015-16 regular-season opener Oct. 7 at the Toronto Maple Leafs, but would have him missing most, if not all, of training camp.

Stastny plans to be bigger leader with Blues

Tuesday, 08.11.2015 / 6:25 PM / News

Paul Stastny plans to take a more active leadership role in his second season with the St. Louis Blues.

"The first year with a new team, you kind of fly under the radar and be quiet," Stastny told The Denver Post on Tuesday. "But as you get older, you have to speak up. You want to win. If you see something go wrong, you're not going to sit there and not say anything.

"[Leadership], it's another attribute and ability that you're good at, and feel like you're not being used for it and kind of hindering yourself and not being involved as much as you should be. But at same time, when you come to a new team, especially a team that's good and has been built from the bottom, they already have their leaders."
