Bruins hope to have Krug, Smith signed before camp

Monday, 09.15.2014 / 3:07 PM / News

NHL.com

Boston Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli said he still hopes to have new contracts in place with entry-level free agents Torey Krug and Reilly Smith before training camp starts Thursday.

"I'm not going to comment on negotiations," Chiarelli told the Bruins website in Antioch, Tenn., where he is with Bruins rookies at a tournament that also includes the Nashville Predators, Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers. "I hope to have them at camp. I can't give you any more clarity."

Krug tied for the lead among Bruins defensemen last season with 40 points, and his 14 goals were second among Boston defenders to the Zdeno Chara's 17. Smith had 20 goals and 51 points in his first full NHL season, and teamed with Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand to form a strong second line.

Bruins' Lucic: Wrist improving, but not 100 percent

Monday, 09.15.2014 / 1:43 PM / News

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The Boston Bruins' loss to the Montreal Canadiens in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Second Round last May came at a cost even greater than the Presidents' Trophy winners not reaching their ultimate goal of a Stanley Cup championship.

Early in that game, forward Milan Lucic jammed his left wrist. A couple days later he was wearing a soft cast. After an MRI, it was determined he needed surgery, which took place in late May.

With Bruins players scheduled to report for physicals and off-ice testing at training camp Thursday, Lucic is encouraged by the progress he's made in his attempt to return from the injury. But he's still not at full strength.

Ryan McDonagh is ready to be captain of the New York Rangers, the defenseman told the New York Daily News.

The Rangers have been without a captain since trading Ryan Callahan to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Martin St. Louis on March 5.

"I think I've progressed into being a go-to guy, someone teammates can look up to and someone they can count on,” McDonagh told Pat Leonard of the Daily News on Friday. "I think guys see I'm willing to do whatever it takes to win… [Being captain] is a big responsibility, too. It's not just about on the ice but how you carry yourself off of it and represent the organization."

RECORD: 27-17-4
GAA: 2.07 | SVP: .915

Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick has not suffered any setbacks in his recovery from offseason wrist surgery and it's hopeful he will be ready to start the 2014-15 season, general manager Dean Lombardi told the Los Angeles Times.

"It's going to go right down to the wire but we think we're fine," Lombardi said Friday, noting Quick has just started to face shots. "We've got [Martin] Jones if we have to go short-term."

At the time of the surgery in late June, the Kings said Quick sustained the injury during their seven-game series win against the Anaheim Ducks in the Western Conference Second Round. Quick still went on to start all 26 games for the Kings as they won the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons.

Devils' Clowe hoping to be cleared for start of camp

Friday, 09.12.2014 / 10:02 AM / News

NHL.com

New Jersey Devils forward Ryane Clowe has been on the ice with teammates for informal workouts, but isn't sure he'll be with the team when training camp opens Sept. 19.

Clowe hasn't played since March 31, when he sustained a concussion during a game against the Florida Panthers. He told NorthJersey.com that he will see a concussion specialist prior to taking his training camp physical and is hoping for a clean bill of health from both exams.

"I feel pretty good," Clowe said Thursday. "I'm not going to say if I'm ready to go or not because I've got to get cleared to play and I've got to see the doctor again before the season starts. But I feel good. I, obviously, haven't done any contact. I've been skating the last few weeks, just scrimmaging since I got back with the guys. I've been on the ice and stuff.

"The biggest thing with me is, when we start practicing, if I get some contact in then and just go from there. I've been feeling pretty good. I've been working out pretty normal the last, I guess, month."

Ovechkin to start Capitals camp at left wing: report

Friday, 09.12.2014 / 8:38 AM / News

NHL.com

Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin has experienced success on the right wing during the past two seasons, but new coach Barry Trotz said he plans on putting him back at left wing to start training camp next week, CSN Washington reported Thursday.

Ovechkin scored an NHL-leading 51 goals in 2013-14 and had 83 goals in 126 games at right wing under former coach Adam Oates. Trotz told CSN he expects to use Ovechkin on either wing during the season, but he'll begin camp Sept. 19 at left wing.

"Going into camp I'd probably say I'm leaning more to left than right," Trotz said. "He moves his feet better on that side, he's able to go laterally better. I want to play him more on that side but I want to clean up some things in his own end to allow him to play that side."

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.

— New Jersey Devils center Scott Gomez on former teammate Martin Brodeur, who will announce his retirement Thursday
