Thursday, 01.30.2014 / 1:41 PM / News


Jay Pandolfo, a key checking-line forward and two-time Stanley Cup winner for the New Jersey Devils, formally announced his retirement Thursday.

Pandolfo, 39, played 18 games last season for the Boston Bruins and 62 the season prior to that with the New York Islanders. He spent the first 13 seasons of his career with the Devils, who selected him in the second round (No. 32) of the 1993 NHL Draft.

"I was very fortunate to live my dream of playing in the NHL," Pandolfo said in a statement released through the NHL Players' Association. "I was lucky to be part of three great organizations and would like to thank the New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders and Boston Bruins. I would like to thank all my teammates, coaches and staff for all the memorable experiences together. I'd especially like to thank my family for all the support they have given me throughout my career."

The Anaheim Ducks have signed defenseman Mark Fistric to a three-year contract extension, the team announced Wednesday.

VANCOUVER – They are separated in age by almost 40 years, but when it comes to hockey in Canada there aren't many degrees of separation between the three recipients of the 2014 Order of Hockey in Canada that were announced on Wednesday morning.

Steve Yzerman, Clare Drake and France St-Louis were named the 2014 class of "Distinguished Honorees of the Order of Hockey in Canada," a program started by Hockey Canada to annually recognize "extraordinary" service to the sport. And it didn't take long to find common bonds between Drake, an 86-year-old coach, St-Louis, a 55-year-old long-time star on Canada's women's team, and Yzerman, the 48-year-old general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning.


Franchise to become Arizona Coyotes for 2014-15

Wednesday, 01.29.2014 / 1:17 PM / News


The Phoenix Coyotes announced Wednesday that the franchise will officially change its name to the Arizona Coyotes beginning at the start of the 2014-15 NHL season.

"Becoming the Arizona Coyotes makes sense for us since we play our games in Glendale and the city is such a great partner of ours," Coyotes co-owner, president and CEO Anthony LeBlanc said. "We also want to be recognized as not just the hockey team for Glendale or Phoenix, but the team for the entire state of Arizona and the Southwest. We hope that the name 'Arizona' will encourage more fans from all over the state, not just the valley, to embrace and support our team."

The Coyotes will also be introducing a new shoulder patch for their home and road jerseys in 2014-15 as part of the name change. The patch will be unveiled for the Coyotes' first preseason game next season. The rest of the uniform will not change.

The Dallas Stars on Wednesday signed forward Ryan Garbutt to a three-year contract extension.

In his third NHL season, Garbutt has already reached career highs in games played (46), goals (10), assists (eight), points (18) and penalty minutes (61).

"Ryan has shown that he is an effective, hard-hitting forward that plays the game with a great deal of speed and tenacity," Dallas general manager Jim Nill said. "Over the course of the season, he has earned the trust of his coaching staff and has played himself into a role where we ask him to play against our opponent's top players on a nightly basis. It's a great credit to the work he has put in and we're excited to have him signed."


Brodeur admits being traded from Devils possibility

Tuesday, 01.28.2014 / 11:48 PM / News


Martin Brodeur said Tuesday that being traded by the New Jersey Devils is "definitely something that is possible" and he would not be insulted if the team asked him to accept a deal.

"It's within the team's rights to try and make themselves better," the goaltender said in an interview with NJ.com. "The fact is, I have the luxury to decide what I want to do. I hope if [general manager Lou Lamoriello] is able to help the team, he'll ask, regardless of what it is. It's definitely something that is possible."

Defenseman Brian Rafalski has ended his attempted comeback with the Florida Everblades of the ECHL.

"I'm done," Rafalski told the Ft. Myers (Fla.) News-Press on Tuesday. "My back is no good. That was one of the hurdles."

Rafalski joined the Everblades on Jan. 10 and played three games.

"There's no reason to keep going," the 40-year-old told the newspaper. "This is not something you can push or play through or goes away."
