TORONTO -- Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky is the latest player to make a long-term commitment to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Bobrovsky on Friday signed a four-year contract extension worth $29.7 million. It will pay him $7.425 million per season starting in 2015-16 and makes him the second-highest paid NHL goalie behind Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers.

"We believe he's only going to improve," Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said here after the deal was announced. "It's ultimately up to the player to prove that he's worth the contract that he gets. That's the way we operate, we operate on giving them the futures, and that's [why] we evaluate these players every day, but we believe with his hard work and dedication he's going to be one of the top goalies in this league for a long time."

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise was back on the ice Friday, trying to find a little bit of normalcy in what has been a trying few weeks.

Parise's father, former NHL player J.P. Parise, died Wednesday after a battle with lung cancer.

Zach Parise has been away from the team since Tuesday, missing two games and a practice, but was able to spend time with his father and his family during J.P.'s final days.

"Not only the last few days, but the last month has been really hard," Parise said. "Last night, watching the game, finally my wife told me, 'You have to go to the rink. You have to go and practice and get away and try to get back in the groove of things.'"

Without technically issuing an ultimatum, Toronto Maple Leafs president Brendan Shanahan essentially said Friday that it's time for the players to show management what they're made of or big changes will be coming.

Shanahan said he spoke to the team Friday morning at Air Canada Centre to deliver that same message.

"I felt it was a good time to remind them what expectations are, try to galvanize the group," Shanahan said. "We're not at the end of the season, we're at the midpoint of the season; they're still in the hunt here. How they're going to be defined is really up to them. I also wanted to make it very clear to them that we're watching, we're on it. They're not getting by us. They're not escaping us. We're not going to be a group that is afraid to act if we feel we can make ourselves better."

Teemu Selanne is a three-time 50-goal scorer, has his name on the Stanley Cup and owns four Olympic medals, so he's used to getting showered with recognition.

However, Selanne will receive a special kind of appreciation Sunday, when the Anaheim Ducks retire his No. 8 prior to their game against the Winnipeg Jets. Despite the wave of emotions that will reverberate around Honda Center, Selanne insisted Thursday that he won't shed any tears of joy.

"I'm not going to cry. Tough guys don't cry," he said with a laugh.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
