Bruins' Rask could win second straight Vezina

Tuesday, 10.07.2014 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Brian Compton - Deputy Managing Editor

Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask obviously was thrilled when he walked up to the podium in Las Vegas in June to accept the Vezina Trophy, awarded to the top player at his position.

The 27-year-old won 36 games and led the Bruins to the Presidents' Trophy, one point ahead of the Anaheim Ducks atop the League standings. Rask played a career-high 58 games and had a 2.04 goals-against average, .930 save percentage and a League-best seven shutouts.

"It's a team game and you can't really win the trophy by yourself," Rask said. "By saying that, you really don't rob the whole season. You play good, but I don't consider myself that I robbed a lot of games. I like to give our team a chance to win but still a big part of it goes to the team, that's for sure."


Rangers name defenseman McDonagh captain

Monday, 10.06.2014 / 8:43 PM / News

New York Rangers defenseman Ryan McDonagh has been named the 27th captain in franchise history, the team announced Monday.

McDonagh, 25, becomes the fourth-youngest captain in Rangers history, and the 11th defenseman in team history to be named captain. The Rangers are now the second franchise in NHL history to have three consecutive American-born captains (along with the Dallas Stars).

"Ryan McDonagh exemplifies what we want a New York Ranger to be," Rangers general manager Glen Sather said. "He has earned the respect of his teammates through his commitment to excellence, both on and off the ice, and the passion with which he plays on a consistent basis. He is the ideal choice to lead our team as its captain."

Johansen, Blue Jackets agree on three-year contract

Monday, 10.06.2014 / 5:25 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Craig Merz - Correspondent

COLUMBUS -- Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen used the phrase "move forward" six times in 10 minutes Monday at a press conference to announce the signing of center Ryan Johansen to a three-year, $12 million contract after protracted negotiations caused the center to miss the Sept. 18 start of training camp.

It was Kekalainen's way of trying to dampen the embers of the sometimes fiery talks between the Blue Jackets and Johansen's agent, Kurt Overhardt.

"I talked to [Johansen] briefly already and basically told him, 'Get your butt over here and let's get to work,'" Kekalainen said. "I wish this all could have been avoided but it was something necessary for us to go through to get the deal done. Now it's done and let's move forward."

Rangers trade opens space for prospect Duclair

Monday, 10.06.2014 / 2:53 PM / News

The New York Rangers acquired forward Joey Crabb from the Florida Panthers on Monday for defenseman Steven Kampfer and forward Andrew Yogan.

What the Rangers also got in the move was an extra slot to add a contract, which will be 19-year-old left wing Anthony Duclair.

Duclair, a third-round pick (No. 80) at the 2013 NHL Draft, led the Rangers in scoring in the preseason with five points in five games. He could have been returned to his junior team but has forced the Rangers to change plans to keep him on the opening-night roster. The two-for-one trade gave the Rangers some room against the 50-contract limit and allowed them to keep Duclair.


Boychuk, Leddy heighten expectations for Islanders

Monday, 10.06.2014 / 2:11 PM / 2014-2015 Season Preview

Brian Compton - Deputy Managing Editor

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- There was a feeling of optimism on the ice at Nassau Coliseum on Monday, perhaps an ever greater feeling than when the New York Islanders opened training camp less than three weeks ago.

Already expected to vie for a spot in the Stanley Cup Playoffs this season, the Islanders bolstered their chances Saturday when they acquired defensemen Johnny Boychuk and Nick Leddy. The newest Islanders practiced for the first time Monday and afterward expressed their excitement of helping New York take that long awaited next step.

"Holy mackerel," Boychuk said as he entered the dressing room after practice to a horde of reporters eager to get his response to the trade that sent two second-round draft picks and a conditional third-round draft pick to the Boston Bruins.

"So far so good," Boychuk said. "It was a nice welcoming. Everybody came up and was friendly, and so far it's been a good transition.

"It was a quick pack, but it's an easy move because it's only a four-hour drive so it wasn't too bad. It'll be a good test for us come Friday [against the Carolina Hurricanes in the season opener]."
