Oshie 'excited for my new start' with Capitals

Thursday, 07.02.2015 / 9:17 PM / News

Katie Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

WASHINGTON -- When the NHL free agency period started, the Washington Capitals were looking to add a top-six forward. They wound up adding two.

Hours after signing Justin Williams late Wednesday night to a two-year contract, the Capitals on Thursday acquired T.J. Oshie in a trade with the St. Louis Blues.

"I'm looking to fit in wherever they think is the best fit for me," Oshie said. "I'm coming in as the new guy and willing to go in there and earn my time and show them what I can do."

Oshie could play alongside two of the NHL's best players, forwards Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom.

"It would be something I've never experienced before," Oshie said. "I've always played with very good players but never players that have put up numbers like those two guys have. To get out there with them would be amazing. I'd feel like a kid in a candy store playing with that caliber of player."

Blues alter core group by trading Oshie for Brouwer

Thursday, 07.02.2015 / 8:45 PM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

ST. LOUIS -- After a third straight elimination in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the St. Louis Blues understood that despite multiple winning regular seasons, change was on the horizon.

One came Thursday when they traded forward T.J. Oshie to the Washington Capitals for forward Troy Brouwer, goalie prospect Pheonix Copley, and a third-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

"Hockey trades are hard to make in this League. You don't see many of them," general manager Doug Armstrong said Thursday. "This is a team that we have some younger players (Vladimir Tarasenko, Jaden Schwartz, Dmitrij Jaskin, Ty Rattie and Robby Fabbri) that I would like to see take a bigger role moving forward. I think that opens up a little bit of space for that. It brings in a different style of player.

"Obviously we haven't had the success that we've wanted to have, and this isn't a reflection of one player, but you have to make adjustments."

Canadiens confident Kassian can help offense

Thursday, 07.02.2015 / 8:20 PM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- The Montreal Canadiens are willing to give Zack Kassian another chance, and the forward is fully aware it might be is last one.

Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin acquired the hulking right wing from the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday, Montreal's only move on the opening day of free agency in an attempt to address its dire need of scoring up front.

Kassian has always had the potential to provide that kind of offensive punch, which is what led the Buffalo Sabres to take him with the 13th pick in the 2009 NHL Draft. But he has yet to prove he can do it in the NHL.

After having been traded for the second time in his career at the age of 24, Kassian said he is grateful for the opportunity the Canadiens are giving him.

"Vancouver was great to me, great organization, great people," Kassian said Thursday. "It's just one of those things, when you're young and you come into the League, you have to find your role and find what you can do. There's a lot of bumps in the road, but I think over the years I've gained a lot of maturity. I'm more than excited to be part of the Canadiens and to have a fresh start and be the player I can be."

Undersized St. Louis always made big impression

Thursday, 07.02.2015 / 6:55 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Nearly two decades later, Craig Ramsay still remembers the smallest player on the ice at the start of Ottawa Senators training camp in 1997.

Ramsay was an assistant coach, and there among Alexei Yashin, Daniel Alfredsson, Vinny Prospal and Alexandre Daigle, was this pint-sized, undrafted training-camp invitee speeding all over the ice. Before Ramsay could figure out who he was, however, he wasn't there anymore.

"I never had a chance to work with him other than to notice him because he was pretty noticeable," Ramsay told NHL.com. "He was a nifty, small guy. And then he was gone."

Martin St. Louis was gone from that Ottawa camp, but after a 16-season career that is likely to include induction into the Hockey Hall of Fame, he won't soon be forgotten.

Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.

— Martin St. Louis after announcing his retirement from the NHL on Thursday
