3-on-3 great for fans, hard for goalies, Schneider says

Thursday, 07.16.2015 / 8:20 PM / News

NHL.com

New Jersey Devils goaltender Cory Schneider thinks he would rather watch the NHL's new overtime format than play in it.

Schneider took part in the Competition Committee talks that led to the approval of 3-on-3 overtime for this season.

"It's going to be interesting for the goalies," Schneider told ESPN.com in remarks published Thursday. "I was a passenger during that discussion. I suggested a side category where a goalie's 3-on-3 stats could be hidden away and not put into your main stats, because it's going to be tough.

"There's so much talent in the NHL and sometimes 5-on-5 opens up, but 3-on-3 is going to open up and fans are really going to love it. It's going to be up and down the ice. It's going to be hard for us goalies, so we're going to have to be really sharp and ready to go."

Michael Del Zotto signed a multiyear contract with the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday.

Terms were not disclosed by the Flyers, but CSNPhilly.com reported it's a two-year, $7.75 million contract.

"I loved Philadelphia, didn't want to be stuck on a one-year deal and run the risk of being [an unrestricted free agent] next year," Del Zotto told CSN Philly's Tim Panaccio.

The 25-year-old defenseman, who became a restricted free agent July 1, was scheduled for salary arbitration July 21 after he rejected the Flyers' qualifying offer.

"It was getting closer and closer, obviously with the date being set for Tuesday morning," Del Zotto said. "Talks all along were going well, and we weren't far off. It was just a matter of getting a number that was fair for both sides."

Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman Olli Maatta, who played 20 games last season after having surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his neck before sustaining a season-ending shoulder injury, said Thursday he expects to be ready for training camp in September.

"We're on the schedule," Maatta told the Penguins website. "Obviously the goal is to be ready for training camp. Everything is going as we planned, so that's the goal."

Maatta, 20, had one goal and nine points last season. He didn't play after Dec. 6 and had shoulder surgery for a second time in less than a year.

"Just leave [last season] all behind me," Maatta said. "I don't even think of it. That's not on my mind. All I'm thinking of is the next season. Just being ready to go in training camp and the beginning of the season."

Dylan Strome wants in early, but Coyotes won't rush

Thursday, 07.16.2015 / 3:00 AM / Prospects

Jerry Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Dylan Strome took the ice at Arizona Coyotes development camp last week with the fanfare that would be expected for the third pick of the 2015 NHL Draft.

But the buzz was muted by the expectation that Strome is a long-term investment, unlike Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel, the top two picks of the draft.

Coyotes general manager Don Maloney and coach Dave Tippett expect Strome to strengthen his skating and continue to build on his 6-foot-3 frame.

Union College standout Carr impressing Canadiens

Thursday, 07.16.2015 / 3:00 AM / Prospects

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

At the Montreal Canadiens' annual charity golf tournament prior to training camp last season, a member of the management team was asked to assess their offseason.

The Canadiens had acquired forward PA Parenteau and a draft pick from the Colorado Avalanche for little-used veteran Daniel Briere, a trade that was widely acclaimed as a win for Montreal. On the free agent market, the Canadiens signed veteran center Manny Malhotra to pivot the fourth line and defenseman Tom Gilbert to fill out their top four on the blue line, and they won what was a bit of a derby to sign young forward Jiri Sekac out of the Kontinental Hockey League.

But none of those names topped the list for this member of the Canadiens front office. Instead, it was a widely ignored college free agent signing.

"The guy we're really excited about," the executive said that day, "is Daniel Carr."
