Pacioretty ready to become a leader on evolving Habs

Tuesday, 08.26.2014 / 9:15 AM / News


When Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin traded defenseman Josh Gorges and allowed captain Brian Gionta to leave as a free agent, he made it clear that it was time for the team's young veterans to assume the duties the two team leaders would leave behind.

That message has been received loud and clear by last season's leading scorer.

Forward Max Pacioretty sees his role growing in the absence of Gorges and Gionta, both of whom will be playing in the Atlantic Division with the Buffalo Sabres this season.

The Ottawa Senators believe they have one of the best goaltending tandems in the NHL, and they acted Monday to ensure it will remain that way past this season.

The Senators and goaltender Craig Anderson agreed to terms on a three-year, $12.6 million contract extension that keeps Anderson under contract through the end of the 2017-18 season.

Anderson's contract extension comes a little over three weeks after the Senators announced a three-year, $6.675 million contract for restricted free-agent goaltender Robin Lehner.

Colorado Avalanche goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere announced his retirement Thursday after 16 seasons in the NHL.

The 37-year-old earned 262 victories in 597 regular-season games and won a Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks in 2007. Giguere won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player of the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2003, when the Ducks lost the Cup Final to the New Jersey Devils in seven games.

Giguere, a first-round pick (No. 13) of the Hartford Whalers in the 1995 NHL Draft, finished 262-216-50 with 25 ties, a 2.53 goals-against average, .913 save percentage and 38 shutouts for the Whalers, Calgary Flames, Ducks, Toronto Maple Leafs and Avalanche.

Wednesday, 08.20.2014 / 10:56 PM / News


Forward Clarke MacArthur agreed to terms with the Ottawa Senators on a five-year, $23.25 million contract extension, the team announced Tuesday.

The contract starts with the 2015-16 season, has an average annual value of $4.65 million, and keeps him with the Senators through the 2019-20 season.

"Obviously last year wasn't what we were looking for (failing to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs), but it's a young team and I still feel we're on the up-and-up," MacArthur told the Ottawa Sun on Wednesday. "For me, to get a deal of this length, it gives me a chance over the six years to try and help make this team a winning team. I'm looking forward to that."


Sharks will start camp with no captain, alternates

Wednesday, 08.20.2014 / 10:54 PM / News


The San Jose Sharks will begin training camp without a captain or alternates, coach Todd McLellan said Wednesday.

Forward Joe Thornton has been captain since prior to the start of the 2010-11 season. Forward Patrick Marleau, who was captain from midway through the 2003-04 season until 2009, was an alternate captain last season. Defenseman Dan Boyle, who signed with the New York Rangers as a free agent, was the other alternate.

"It's a big honor and it's a big responsibility so it's a little strange when they take it away from you," Thornton told David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News.

McLellan said it would be an open competition to determine the next captain.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
