Busy calendar remains for NHL teams

Monday, 06.16.2014 / 12:48 PM / NHL Insider

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Just because the Stanley Cup has been awarded doesn't mean the end credits have rolled on the 2013-14 NHL season.

There are a number of big events coming in the next few weeks that will go a long way toward deciding which team is the final one standing a year from now.

The hard work started Monday when the window opened for teams to offer compliance buyouts to players. Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, teams were given two special buyout provisions that allow them to buy out a player's contract while not having it count toward the salary cap. And those compliance buyouts only could be used following the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons.

NHL.com

The Columbus Blue Jackets signed three coaches on Todd Richards' staff to contract extensions and also added Brad Larsen as an assistant coach, the team announced Monday.

Associate coach Craig Hartsburg, goaltending coach Ian Clark and development coach Chris Clark all received multiyear contract extensions. Richards signed his own extension last month, and general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said at the time he was working on contracts for the rest of the coaching staff.

"Our coaching staff, led by Todd Richards, has done a tremendous job and we're pleased to extend the contracts of Craig, Ian and Chris and to add a very bright young coach in Brad Larsen to the staff," Kekalainen said. "We believe our coaching staff is as strong as any in the NHL and that they will continue to play pivotal roles in the development and success of our team moving forward."

Kings poised to be Cup contenders for several years

Monday, 06.16.2014 / 11:00 AM / NHL Insider

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

The Los Angeles Kings are Stanley Cup champions for the second time in three seasons and have a collection of star players who are both signed to long-term contracts and young enough to remain at their current level for at least the next few seasons.

General manager Dean Lombardi has cultivated the closest thing the NHL has seen to a perfect roster in the salary-cap era. The Kings have built a champion through the NHL Draft and deft trades, molding the roster while relying on free agency as little as possible. There is little reason to believe the Kings won't be contenders for the Stanley Cup again in 2015 and beyond.

Finnish goalie Husso used draft snub as motivation

Monday, 06.16.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Goalie Ville Husso of HIFK in Finland considered it a pretty humbling experience when he wasn't one of the 211 players chosen at the 2013 NHL Draft.

He only dwelled on it for about a millisecond, however. He thought the best tonic was to focus on doing whatever he could to re-establish himself as a legitimate top prospect for the 2014 draft, to be held June 27-28 at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

"Not being drafted gave me so much motivation; I practiced harder and gained more speed," Husso said. "I thought I played well and took some big steps."

Family dynamic part of Dal Colle's relentless drive

Monday, 06.16.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Not a day goes by that Michael Dal Colle doesn't consider himself fortunate to have an opportunity to do what he enjoys most: play forward for the Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey League.

It's something he understood early in life and won't ever take for granted.

His role model is his older brother, Jonluca Dal Colle, who is autistic. His hero is his mother, Wendy Dal Colle, who seven years ago was diagnosed with breast cancer but fought the fight and has been cleared since 2009.

"My mom is a huge role model for me in my life after all she's been through, in raising her kids, a special-needs son; it's pretty powerful," Michael Dal Colle told NHL.com. "Obviously, in the back of my mind, everything I do is for her. I hope I can help her even more in the future."

Dal Colle has two siblings, Jonluca and a sister, Daniela, who played NCAA Division I hockey at Niagara University.

"Jonluca is a great guy and the other role model in my life," Dal Colle said. "He's had it hard, growing up. It's tough, but it has made us a stronger family. It makes me a better person. It's different, but I'm so used to it now and he's someone special in my life for sure; an important addition to the family."

Avalanche to take O'Reilly to arbitration: report

Sunday, 06.15.2014 / 6:44 PM / News

NHL.com

The Colorado Avalanche have decided to take forward Ryan O'Reilly to club-elected salary arbitration, TSN's Bob McKenzie reported Sunday.

O'Reilly, 23, could become a restricted free agent on July 1. A finalist for the Lady Byng Trophy, he led the Avalanche with 28 goals and finished third on the team with 64 points. O'Reilly had two penalty minutes in 80 games this season.

O'Reilly signed a two-year, $10 million offer sheet with the Calgary Flames in Feb. 2013, which the Avalanche matched. He had six points (two goals, four assists) in seven Stanley Cup Playoff games this spring. Colorado lost to the Minnesota Wild in the Western Conference First Round.

Brendan Lemieux proud to model game after father

Sunday, 06.15.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Left wing Brendan Lemieux of the Barrie Colts considers himself the silent but deadly type.

As the son of former NHL player and four-time Stanley Cup champion Claude Lemieux, that shouldn't come as a surprise. The family patriarch made a living out of making life miserable for the opposition whenever he stepped on the ice, and it usually worked.

Does dad notice similarities between his style and the way his son now attacks the game?

"Yes, Brendan plays a very similar style of hockey that I did back when I played," Claude Lemieux told NHL.com. "Having said that, it's hard to compare playing today's game versus the old NHL of the '80s and '90s. The game today is less physical and much more of a skill game played at a faster pace, so Brendan is forced to be different than I was because of the way the game is played."
