Rangers recall Fast, send Malone to AHL

Monday, 11.10.2014 / 6:19 PM / News

The New York Rangers recalled forward Jesper Fast from the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League on Monday and assigned forward Ryan Malone and defenseman Conor Allen to the AHL.

Fast, 22, was scoreless in three games after breaking training camp with the Rangers, but had a goal and nine points in 11 games with Hartford, including a six-game point streak and points in seven of his past eight games.

Malone, who cleared waivers last week, was scoreless in six games and a healthy scratch in the Rangers' past three. He has six shots on goal and 14 hits.


Canadiens assign forward Rene Bourque to AHL

Monday, 11.10.2014 / 4:28 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

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.


Giordano, Anderson, Tarasenko named 'Three Stars'

Monday, 11.10.2014 / 12:00 PM / News

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.


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.

"Yeah, definitely," Krug told the Bruins website after practice Sunday. "It's realistic, it's something that we've just got to talk about and make sure I feel comfortable with it, the coaches feel comfortable, and it's going to be a group decision.

"I feel good. I'm feeling more comfortable. Every time I'm on the ice I feel better about it, so it's good so far."

Canadiens retire Hall of Famer Lapointe's No. 5

Saturday, 11.08.2014 / 8:40 PM / News

MONTREAL -- The Big Three is together again.

The Montreal Canadiens retired the No. 5 of Hall of Fame defenseman Guy Lapointe prior to the game against the Minnesota Wild on Saturday, allowing him to join the No. 18 of Serge Savard and No. 19 of Larry Robinson in the rafters of Bell Centre.

An emotional Lapointe, who has been the Wild's chief of amateur scouting since Minnesota was awarded an expansion franchise in 1999, struggled to control his emotions as he watched his No. 5 Lapointe banner raised between those of his fellow Big Three members on either side of him.

"I was a lot more comfortable in a pair of skates than I am in my shoes right now," Lapointe told the Bell Centre crowd.

The NHL is not likely to see anything like the famed Big Three on the blue line of the powerhouse Canadiens teams of the 1970s again, with Savard, Robinson and Lapointe all honored in the Hockey Hall of Fame after playing on the same blue line.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
