ST. PAUL, Minn. -- It's no surprise that Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter is a big fan of the jerseys they will wear for their 2016 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series game against the Chicago Blackhawks at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn., on Feb. 22, 2016.
"It's laid back, it's not flashy, it's traditional. It's kind of got that old school look to it," Suter said.
The Wild and Blackhawks each revealed their Stadium Series jerseys on Tuesday, with the hosts doing so in an on-ice unveiling in front of media and selected season-ticket holders at Xcel Energy Center.
SAN JOSE - San Jose Sharks General Manager Doug Wilson announced today that the club has signed forward Dainius Zubrus to a one-year, two way contract.
Zubrus, 37, recorded 10 points (four goals, six assists) and 42 penalty minutes in 74 games with New Jersey last season. In 1,243 career NHL games with Philadelphia, Montreal, Washington, Buffalo and New Jersey, he has registered 584 points (225 goals, 359 assists) and 771 penalty minutes.
“It’s a big loss,” coach Michel Therrien said. “He’s a big part of the success of this hockey team. But we lost [goaltender Carey Price] for a period of time. For me it’s not an excuse to not keep having success.”
Gallagher is third on the Canadiens and tied for 23rd in the NHL with 19 points, one behind the 20 points of his linemates Max Pacioretty and Tomas Plekanec. He is also second on Montreal and 16th in the NHL with 70 shots on goal.
Elias practiced Monday, according to Northjersey.com. The report said Elias took line rushes on the third line with forwards Jacob Josefson and Stefan Matteau. He also saw regular time while the Devils practiced their power play.
