Dupuis not cleared for Penguins camp yet: report

Thursday, 09.04.2014 / 4:02 PM / News

NHL.com

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis has not been cleared for contact as he recovers from knee surgery and it is unknown if he will be in time for the start of training camp Sept. 19, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Thursday.

"We don't hit anybody this early anyway, so I wouldn't be able to test it," Dupuis told the newspaper. "Yes, I'm battling in the corners, 1-on-1, and it feels great. It doesn't swell on me. … The way it feels is the way I would feel this time of year, usually. It's just not battle-tested yet."

Dupuis, 35, is skating with Penguins teammates at Consol Energy Center. He was injured Dec. 23 against the Ottawa Senators when he was involved in a collision with Sidney Crosby. Dupuis had surgery Feb. 12 to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee.

Player Safety leader will be named before season

Wednesday, 09.03.2014 / 8:37 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BOUCHERVILLE, Quebec -- The NHL is close to hiring a new head of the Department of Player Safety, Commissioner Gary Bettman said Wednesday.

The NHL has been without a permanent lead disciplinarian since Brendan Shanahan left the League on April 11 to become president and alternate governor of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Stephane Quintal, who worked under Shanahan since November 2011, took over as head of player safety on an interim basis through the end of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"We're getting to the short strokes of that process," Commissioner Bettman said, speaking at a media event outside Montreal. "We've interviewed a lot of candidates, including somebody that's been doing it on an interim basis, and we will be making a decision shortly. We wanted to finish the process; [NHL deputy commissioner] Bill Daly and I each managed to take a little time off in August, but certainly well in advance of the start of the season we'll have an announcement."

No. 1 pick Ekblad signs, believes he'll make Panthers

Wednesday, 09.03.2014 / 7:32 PM / News

Alain Poupart - NHL.com Correspondent

Defenseman Aaron Ekblad reached a second important milestone in his NHL journey Wednesday when he signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Florida Panthers.

Now comes the next, and perhaps most challenging, step: making the Panthers' opening-night roster.

"I consider it as a set of milestones leading up to my first NHL season," Ekblad said. "Obviously the draft was a big one, this is a big one, and coming into camp next week is going to be a big one as well. I'm pretty excited. It's a pretty cool experience for sure."

Ekblad, the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, is hoping to join a young Panthers defense that has two players older than 24, Brian Campbell (35) and free-agent acquisition Willie Mitchell (37).

Ekblad, 18, said he's very confident he can earn a spot in a group that figures to include 2009 first-round pick Dmitry Kulikov (23) and 2010 No. 3 pick Erik Gudbranson (22).

"If you don't believe in yourself you're putting yourself behind the eight-ball," Ekblad said. "I do believe in myself. I believe I can be on this team opening night. I'm very confident in that. I feel like I'm ready. I couldn't be in a better position than where I am."

Daniel Alfredsson is waiting to see how his back feels before committing to play for the Detroit Red Wings this season.

"If I was confident enough after the season that I would feel the same way starting [this] season as I did (starting) last season, I would have signed already," Alfredsson told the Detroit Free Press on Wednesday.

Alfredsson missed 14 games last season, some with a back injury, and the Free Press reported the 41-year-old forward at the time felt "tingling in a nerve down his right leg." He is in Detroit practicing with several Red Wings.
