Friday, 07.03.2015 / 10:47 AM / News

The Winnipeg Jets are pleased to announce they have agreed to terms with forward Brendan Lemieux on three-year, two-way, entry level contract with an average annual value of $1.125 million.

Lemieux, 19, was acquired by the Jets in a trade on Feb. 11, 2015 that also brought Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, Joel Armia and a first-round pick at the 2015 NHL Draft (Jack Roslovic) from Buffalo in exchange for Zach Bogosian, Evander Kane and Jason Kasdorf. Lemieux was drafted by the Sabres in the second round, 31st over-all in 2014. He had 41 goals and 60 points in 57 games for the OHL's Barrie Colts last season, his third with the club. Over his OHL career, Lemieux had 74 goals and 127 points in 164 games. He also won a gold medal with Canada at the 2013 Ivan Hlinka U18 Memorial Tournament in Slovakia.

Senators prospect Paul gaining his 'man strength'

OTTAWA – The potential of a prospect like big wing Nicholas Paul is one of the reasons Ottawa Senators general manager Bryan Murray chose not to re-sign unrestricted free agent Erik Condra.

Condra signed a three-year contract worth $1.25 million per season with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday. Murray said he liked Condra and what he contributed on the Senators third line last season, but balked at the length of the contract, fearing it would get in the way of the development of a prospect like Paul.

"This is my point with some of these players: if you sign beyond a year or two it shuts the door on these kids for a long period," Murray said. "(Paul) might be ready to play – and I shouldn't say this – within the first couple of months of the year. He looks like the kind of player you send him to the minors and let him play some pro games down there and by the second half you're saying why isn't he on our team? There's a few guys like that I see over there (at the Senators' development camp)."

Oshie 'excited for my new start' with Capitals

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

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

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

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 "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.
