Ray Emery agreed to a professional tryout contract with Ontario of the American Hockey League, the affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings, on Saturday.

Emery, 33, attended training camp with the Tampa Bay Lightning on a professional tryout, but was released Sept. 28, the same day the Lightning claimed goaltender Kevin Poulin on waivers from the New York Islanders.

Last season Emery went 10-11-7 with a 3.06 goals-against average and .894 save percentage in 31 games with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Kings add Jack Jablonski as communications intern

Jack Jablonski has made it to the NHL.

The 20-year-old hoped to do so as a player, but a spinal-cord injury sustained in a high school game in 2011 left him paralyzed from the chest down. This season, the Los Angeles Kings hired him to work as an intern in their communications department. Jablonski is a student at the University of Southern California studying journalism and communications.

"I definitely wanted to keep pursuing a career in hockey and that hockey lifestyle, and I’m super interested in PR and communications, so I hoped I could find an area that was a good fit," Jablonski told the Orange County Register in an article published Saturday.

ISLANDERS BEGIN FIRST SEASON AT BARCLAYS CENTER

After playing their first 43 NHL seasons at Nassau Coliseum, the New York Islanders began a new era when they played in their first regular-season game at Barclays Center. The Islanders became the first NHL team to play in a new arena since 2011-12, when the Winnipeg Jets played their first game at MTS Centre (5-1 loss to Montreal Canadiens).

BLACKHAWKS SPOIL OPENER WITH OVERTIME WIN IN BROOKLYN

Patrick Kane (2-0—2) scored twice, including at 1:49 of overtime, to lead the Chicago Blackhawks to victory in the first regular-season game at the new home of the Islanders in Brooklyn, N.Y.

* It was the second regular-season overtime goal of Kane’s career. The other came March 23, 2008, vs. the St. Louis Blues (4-3).

* Corey Crawford stopped 34 of 36 shots to improve to 4-0-1 with a 1.95 goals-against average and a .944 save percentage in five career games against the Islanders.

* The Blackhawks improved to 6-2-0 in their last eight games against the Islanders dating to Jan. 9, 2011 (5-0 W).

Canadiens long to prove they're more than Price

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec -- All summer long, people were saying the Montreal Canadiens are a team that relies too much on goaltender Carey Price to win games for them.

In their first chance to prove those people wrong, Wednesday in the season-opener at the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Canadiens did the opposite.

They proved them right, allowing the Maple Leafs to control long stretches of the game but coming out with a 3-1 win based largely on 36 saves made by Price.

It was remarkably similar to what the Canadiens did last season.

"Obviously we'd like to score more, but as long as we're winning the games, that's what matters," Canadiens center Tomas Plekanec said Sept. 8 at the NHL Player Media Tour in Toronto. "A big part of that was [Price], which is the one thing honestly we want to get better at and play better in front of him."

Asked Friday about reverting to that problem to start this season, Plekanec got annoyed.

Healthy Krejci eager to lead Bruins back to playoffs

Saturday, 10.10.2015 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Matt Kalman - NHL.com Correspondent

BOSTON -- Boston Bruins center David Krejci endured an injury-riddled season after signing a six-year, $43.5 million contract extension last September. The Bruins went 16-13-6 while Krejci missed 20 games with an undisclosed injury and 15 more with a knee injury.

Krejci embarked on a workout regimen this summer to make sure his injury troubles don't come back.

"I've been working out for a long time," Krejci said before the Bruins opened their regular season Thursday, a 6-2 loss to the Winnipeg Jets. "I changed my workouts a little bit this year. I've been skating a little bit longer before training camp. So I came into training camp in good shape, feeling good with my body. And so far here the games and practices have been pretty good. It's a big training camp for me and for the team. So far I'm pretty happy how things are going."

Krejci and the Bruins play the Montreal Canadiens at TD Garden on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; NHLN, SN, TVA Sports, NESN).

Capitals D-man Orlov back in NHL after 18 months

Katie Brown - NHL.com Correspondent

ARLINGTON, Va. -- After the Washington Capitals' first preseason game against the Carolina Hurricanes on Sept. 21, coach Barry Trotz stopped defenseman Dmitry Orlov as he was leaving the ice.

"He had a big ol' smile when he was coming off the ice against Carolina," Trotz said. "He had a grin from ear to ear. I said, 'Hey, finally back.'"

It was the first NHL game in almost 18 months for Orlov, who missed last season following wrist surgery. He'll play his first regular-season game Saturday when the Capitals host the new Jersey Devils in their season-opener.

Coyotes forward Domi scores in NHL debut

Arizona Coyotes forward Max Domi scored in the second period of his NHL debut against the Los Angeles Kings on Friday.

Domi beat Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick with a wrist shot 4:43 into the period to give Arizona a 3-0 lead. The son of former NHL player Tie Domi had an assist on a first-period goal by Oliver Ekman-Larsson that put the Coyotes ahead 2-0.

"It was a lot of fun," Domi said after the 4-1 victory. "It was tough to get a smile off my face that whole 60 minutes. But it's awful nice to get the win and start the season off the right way."

Islanders' traditions right at home in Brooklyn

Saturday, 10.10.2015 / 12:06 AM / NHL Insider

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The venue might be different and state of the art, but the New York Islanders aren't kidding when they say tradition has a new home.

Everything that once brightened up Nassau Coliseum -- the energetic fans, the lively chants, and, yes, even the goal horn -- made the move to Brooklyn with the Islanders.

That much was obvious Friday when the Islanders played their first regular-season game at Barclays Center, a 3-2 overtime loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The people who grew up Islanders fans, in one arena, partying in the parking lot and loving their 43-year-old building like it was an old friend, streamed off the subways and Long Island Rail Road and began treating their new home with the same reverence and respect.

"The atmosphere was great," said Islanders captain John Tavares, who scored the first goal for the home team in its new building 5:22 into the second period. "Our fans were into it, behind us like they always are. Certainly they brought that tradition over from the Coliseum.

"Everything was really similar, as much as it could be."

Red Wings forward Larkin scores in NHL debut

DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings forward Dylan Larkin scored in his NHL debut Friday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Larkin gave the Red Wings a 3-0 lead 20 seconds into the second period of their season opener when he lifted a shot over the right shoulder of goalie Jonathan Bernier.

"It's an incredible feeling just to see it go in and see the Joe go pretty crazy," Larkin said. "Ever since the introduction there, I was kind of feeling the nerves, and to put that one home, I started to feel comfortable and I thought my play started to pick up."

McDavid 'more relaxed' heading into second game

Friday, 10.09.2015 / 10:17 PM / News

Edmonton Oilers forward Connor McDavid is ready to continue his NHL career with the hype of his first game behind him.

"I just feel more relaxed today," McDavid told the Edmonton Journal on Friday at Bridgestone Arena, where the Oilers will play the Nashville Predators on Saturday. "Yesterday was a bit crazy and I was certainly looking forward to getting the first one out of the way.

"I know that sounds a little bit different. Everyone wants to savor it, and for sure I had some great memories from it, but at the same time, it was really nice to get it out of the way so I could just start trying to be a normal hockey player."
