Signings roundup: Union's Bodie agrees with Rangers

Tuesday, 04.15.2014 / 5:14 PM / News

NHL.com

Defenseman Mat Bodie, who recently captained Union College to an NCAA championship, signed a free-agent contract with the New York Rangers on Tuesday. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Bodie, 24, had a goal and an assist in a 7-4 win against the University of Minnesota in the championship game Saturday at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. He finished his senior season leading all Union defensemen with 39 points (eight goals).

"We have been tracking his development for four years," Rangers assistant general manager Jeff Gorton told BlueshirtsUnited.com. "He's a real character kid who we think adds a hard to find element to our defensive depth going forward. Being captain of a championship team just adds to what he is as a player."

Flyers re-sign MacDonald, sign Gostisbehere

Tuesday, 04.15.2014 / 3:30 PM / News

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

VOORHEES, N.J. -- The Philadelphia Flyers took care of their defense for the short term and long term Tuesday.

Veteran defenseman Andrew MacDonald signed a six-year contract extension, and 2012 third-round pick Shayne Gostisbehere signed an entry-level contract. Financial terms were not released, but multiple media reports placed the value of MacDonald's contract at $30 million.

MacDonald was acquired March 4 from the New York Islanders in a trade for a third-round pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, a second-round pick in 2015, and minor-league forward Matt Mangene.

"We kind of hashed it out a couple different ways," MacDonald said. "Ended up finishing on six [years] and I felt like a good, long-term commitment was great for me and they agreed with it. Obviously it's a big commitment for them, a big commitment for me. It's a good deal."

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said the fact MacDonald is 27 years old made the six-year length a palatable option.

"Because of his age we didn't mind six years," Holmgren said. "We talked about a lot of different scenarios, even longer than six years, but settled on six."

Trotz out as Predators coach after 15 years

Monday, 04.14.2014 / 6:50 PM / News

John Manasso - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- In what can only be described as a heart-felt love letter to the Nashville Predators and the city he called home for 17 years, Barry Trotz said an emotional goodbye on Monday to the organization that he coached from its inception, a span of 1,196 regular-season games.

"I'm from Dauphin, Manitoba, and I didn't know much about Nashville," Trotz said. "I was in Portland, Maine, working for their minor-league team. I never thought I could find a better place, better people. Come to Nashville, I found out. It's incredible."

Always among the most accommodating and thoughtful coaches in the NHL with the media, Trotz proved no different on a day when general manager David Poile announced that the Predators would seek a new coach after 15 seasons, 557 wins and seven appearances in the Stanley Cup Playoffs under Trotz.

Trotz, who was offered a different job within the organization, said he had "zero ill will" towards the franchise, but that he wants to coach next season and would accept a position if offered one. Poile said he would grant another NHL team permission to talk to Trotz if the Predators are asked.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
