Restricted free-agent defenseman John Moore has agreed to terms on a contract with the New York Rangers, the team announced Thursday.

No other details were released, but the New York Post reported Wednesday that Moore had signed a one-year, $850,500 contract.

Moore, 23, had career-bests with four goals and 15 points in 74 regular-season games, averaging 15:19 of ice time. He had two assists and a plus-2 rating in 21 Stanley Cup Playoff games, helping the Rangers advance to the Final for the first time in 20 years.

Moore was a first-round pick (No. 21) by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2009. He was acquired by the Rangers in April 2013 as part of the trade that sent forward Marian Gaborik to Columbus.

In 173 NHL games with the Blue Jackets and Rangers, Moore has seven goals and 29 points.

Predators goaltender Rinne says 'hip feels great'

Thursday, 09.11.2014 / 8:41 AM / News

NHL.com

Nashville Predators goalie Pekka Rinne had two surgeries on his hip in the past year, but he's participating in informal skates this week and said he has no restrictions.

"The hip feels great. I had a good summer. I worked hard and stayed healthy. I'm just really excited for this upcoming season. I feel like I'm ready to go," Rinne told The Tennessean in remarks published Wednesday. "I still have to pay attention to it, but I don't have to change anything. I don't have to skip any training because of that. It feels normal. I feel like I have the strength back in my legs this summer. It feels great and it's nice not to think about it all the time."

Maple Leafs more than happy with Rielly's progress

Thursday, 09.11.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Mike Brophy - NHL.com Correspondent

Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly winced when Montreal Canadiens foe Max Pacioretty, using his own likeness on NHL 15, scored against him as the two demonstrated the soon-to-be-released game during an event earlier this month at MasterCard Centre.

"Ouch!" Rielly said. "I'm going to hear about that one from Randy between periods."

A little humor to ease the tension.

Randy, of course, is Toronto Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle; a demanding, no-nonsense taskmaster who smiles and jokes in public but is just a little more direct behind closed doors.

Traverse City tournament a hotbed for future stars

Thursday, 09.11.2014 / 3:00 AM / Traverse City Prospects Tournament

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- It was four years ago that Carolina Hurricanes forward Jeff Skinner provided fans a glimpse of what his future would hold when he played in the Traverse City Prospects Tournament at Centre ICE Arena in Traverse City, Mich.

Just three months after the Hurricanes made him the No. 7 pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, Skinner helped lead his team to a third-place finish at the eight-team event behind a tournament-leading seven points (two goals) in four games.

Skinner went on to earn a spot on Carolina's roster out of training camp, had 31 goals and 63 points in 82 regular-season games, was an injury replacement at the NHL All-Star Game and won the 2011 Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL rookie of the year.

"Going into the tournament, you realize it is one of the first times that management sees you at the next level where you are playing against older guys," Skinner said. "I went into it knowing that it was going to be competitive and a lot of fun. I just tried to relax and work my hardest."

NEW YORK -- Defenseman P.K. Subban said he's ready to be captain of the Montreal Canadiens if the role is offered to him.

SOG: 204 | +/-: -4

"It would be a great honor. I'd love to be the captain of the Montreal Canadiens," Subban said Tuesday during the NHL Player Media Tour. "I embrace responsibility. ... I've always been a guy who has had to perform for my team. I have always expected that out of myself. It doesn't change anything for me. The only thing that would change is a letter on my jersey, but in Montreal that means something. That means something to the fanbase. That means something to the team."

Montreal has a vacancy at captain after forward Brian Gionta signed with the Buffalo Sabres this offseason as a free agent. Other candidates include forward Max Pacioretty, forward Tomas Plekanec and defenseman Andrei Markov.

Islanders' Okposo eager to 'take that next step'

GOALS: 27 | ASST: 42 | PTS: 69
SOG: 195 | +/-: -9
Not many things went right for the New York Islanders last season, but they were certainly pleased with the emergence of right wing Kyle Okposo.

The 26-year-old, who battled inconsistency in prior seasons, found chemistry on the top line alongside center John Tavares and led the Islanders with 69 points (27 goals, 42 assists) in 71 games. He finished in the NHL top 20 in scoring, though he missed the final 10 games of the season with a lower-body injury.

Okposo spent the summer in his native Minnesota but returned to New York recently and skated at the Islanders practice facility on Wednesday. The power forward is aiming to build off his career season with hopes of helping the Islanders qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs after finishing 14th in the Eastern Conference.

Red Wings' Ericsson still bothered by injured finger

Wednesday, 09.10.2014 / 8:53 PM / News

Detroit Red Wings defenseman Jonathan Ericsson said Wednesday he will participate in training camp at less than 100 percent because his surgically repaired finger is not quite healed.

"It still doesn't feel 100 percent but I guess these kinds of accidents, or whatever you call it, may take some time," Ericsson told the Red Wings website. "It's been a frustrating summer with the training and all of that because it's hard to hold onto a bar with the weights on. … It was a little frustrating for sure, but I should be fine."

Ericsson missed the final 14 games of the regular season and the Stanley Cup Playoffs after his finger was broken blocking a shot against the Toronto Maple Leafs on March 18. Surgery included four pins to stabilize multiple fractures and repair of a torn tendon.

"My finger was crushed, so it was a lot of pieces that they had to try to puzzle together and I guess some pieces they left out because they were so small," the 30-year-old said. "There were some gaps between some of the bones and it took some time for the bones to heal in those places."

Captain Koivu created lasting legacy in Montreal

Wednesday, 09.10.2014 / 7:45 PM / NHL Insider

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

Establishing Saku Koivu's legacy in the NHL is a tricky endeavor. It is not simply defined by goals and assists, or championships.

Koivu, who announced his retirement Wednesday after 18 NHL seasons with the Montreal Canadiens and the Anaheim Ducks, leaves the game as one of its most highly respected players, yet one that never reached truly elite status in the League, nor does he have his name on the Stanley Cup.

But he created as rich a legacy as any NHL player in recent history, especially in Montreal.

In a sense, it is unfortunate that Koivu will always be most remembered for the courageous battle he fought, and won, against non-Hodgkin's lymphoma during the 2001-02 season. Koivu did so much more than beat cancer over the course of his career.

"He will be missed greatly and his legacy and spirit will be with us every day. He lived with the motto, 'It’s all about the kids,' and forever he will be remembered by this.
