Devils sign Greene to multiyear contract extension

GOALS: 8 | ASST: 24 | PTS: 32
SOG: 134 | +/-: 3
New Jersey Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello believes veteran defenseman Andy Greene should be considered among the premier players at his position in the NHL.

The Devils showed that faith Wednesday when they signed Greene, 31, to a multiyear contract extension. No terms were announced, but Northjersey.com reports it is for five years, $25 million.

"Andy has evolved into an all-situation player and that's a tremendous compliment because there are very few in the League that you can say are all-situation players," Lamoriello said. "He can also play both left and right, depending on what is asked of him.

"Andy comes to the rink, does his job day in and day out, and never takes a practice off, never looks left or right, and is always focused on what he's doing. To me, that's a top-flight defenseman."

Rangers' Talbot aims to show rookie season no fluke

Wednesday, 07.30.2014 / 3:30 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Cam Talbot came to New York Rangers training camp last September trying to prove he was an NHL-caliber goaltender. He'll be back this September trying to show his performance as Henrik Lundqvist's backup in 2013-14 was no fluke.

Talbot got his first chance to play in the NHL last October as a 26-year-old rookie after Martin Biron retired, and he made the most of it. The former Alabama-Huntsville goaltender went 12-6-1 with a 1.64 goals-against average, a save percentage of .941 and three shutouts.

He told BlueshirtsUnited.com his goal for this season is to show he's not a one-hit wonder.

"I think the last few years I've come into camp in good shape and I've been fairly ready, but they've had two pretty good goalies ahead of me and it wasn't my time," Talbot said. "This year coming up, I have to prove that last year wasn't a fluke. I think a lot of people are going to think I came in and played a little bit beyond my range last year, and it's my goal to go out and prove them wrong."

EDMONTON -- Nail Yakupov has moved on.

After spending the majority of the offseason in Russia, the Edmonton Oilers right wing has returned to prepare for the NHL season, having put a disappointing second season behind him.

"It might be a huge year for me and that's why I'm here, to work on some things and to be here and train," Yakupov said Tuesday during a visit to the Oilers summer hockey school. "I just want to be ready for the season. I'm going to be doing some different things this year. I feel more comfortable here than training at home. That's why I'm here and I will train with the Oilers prospects and the other NHL players that will come."

Hartnell excited to get started with Blue Jackets

Tuesday, 07.29.2014 / 2:30 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Shortly after being traded for the second time, forward Scott Hartnell asked some of his friends what he could expect as a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Scott Hartnell
Left Wing - CBJ
GOALS: 20 | ASST: 32 | PTS: 52
SOG: 207 | +/-: 11
He likes what he's heard so far.

After seven seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers, Hartnell was traded to Columbus on June 23 for forward R.J. Umberger and a fourth-round draft pick. A fan favorite in Philadelphia, Hartnell admitted to fighting back tears when he returned to the Flyers training facility two days later to clean out his locker.

After the initial shock subsided, Hartnell approached former Flyers teammates Steve Mason and Jakub Voracek, who each started his career in Columbus. Their feedback is one reason Hartnell has a good feeling about joining an up-and-coming Blue Jackets team. He also sought advice from Jody Shelley, a former Philadelphia teammate who played for Columbus and serves as a television analyst and team ambassador.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
