Blue Jackets sign Wennberg; Penguins sign Archibald

Friday, 05.16.2014 / 5:34 PM / News

The Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday signed center Alexander Wennberg to a three-year entry-level contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Wennberg, 19, was selected with the 14th pick in the 2013 NHL Draft and recently completed his rookie season with Frolunda HC in the Swedish Hockey League. The native of Nacka, Sweden, finished second on the team with 16 goals in 50 games and was a finalist for rookie of the year.

"In talking to Alexander after the season, he made it very clear that he wanted to sign, work hard this summer and then come to training camp to try to make our team," Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekelainen said. "He is an outstanding young player and we are excited to watch him develop in the coming years."


Bruins believe minor tweaks all that are needed

BOSTON -- Two days after the Boston Bruins lost Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Second Round to the Montreal Canadiens, Bruins center David Krejci reported to TD Garden for breakup day Friday still wearing his playoff beard.

The facial hair added to Krejci's forlorn look as he continued to lament the missed opportunities that would have prevented him from having a goal-less Stanley Cup Playoffs and might have helped the Bruins advance to the Eastern Conference Final for the second straight season.

Krejci had four assists in 12 games of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

"I thought I had a pretty consistent season the whole year," Krejci said. "And I guess then I was still getting some chances. I felt like I had some strong games. But at the end of the day when the puck doesn't go in the net, that's all that matters. It was just bad timing. I didn't get through it. I tried my best, but it didn't happen. So it was frustrating at times. Now it's disappointing. But it is what it is. It's going to be tough the next few days, but hopefully I'll get through it."


Worlds: Jones leads U.S. to OT win; Canada routs Italy

Friday, 05.16.2014 / 4:45 PM / News

Defenseman Seth Jones of the Nashville Predators scored his second goal of the game 1:05 into overtime to rally the United States to a 4-3 victory against Kazakhstan in preliminary-round play of the 2014 IIHF World Championship at Minsk Arena in Belarus on Friday.

The victory snapped a two-game skid for the United States (3-2, eight points) after losses to Russia and Latvia in the Group B field.

"We definitely wanted to win this," Jones told the IIHF website. "We didn't want it to be as close as it was, to be honest, but we are happy to get the points."


Flyers defenseman Gustafsson signs with KHL

Friday, 05.16.2014 / 3:51 PM / News

Defenseman Erik Gustafsson will not return to the Philadelphia Flyers next season.

The 25-year-old, who will become a restricted free agent in July, on Friday informed the Flyers he has signed a contract to play with Avangard Omsk of the Kontinental Hockey League. The Russian club announced the signing on its official Twitter account.

"I spoke with Erik [on Friday] and he informed me that he does in fact have a deal in place to play overseas," Flyers general manager Ron Hextall said. "Although we are disappointed in his decision, we wish him all the best."


Seidenberg could have played if Bruins advanced

BOSTON -- Had the Boston Bruins advanced beyond their Eastern Conference Second Round series against the Montreal Canadiens, defenseman Dennis Seidenberg probably would've returned to the Bruins' lineup.

The Bruins lost Game 7 to the Canadiens 3-1 on Wednesday.

Seidenberg had surgery to repair an ACL/MCL injury in early January. The prognosis was a return in 6-8 months, but he'd been skating for more than a month and took some light contact by the time the series ended.


Rangers goalie Lundqvist not bothered by Bell Centre

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Sitting in a locker stall Thursday, New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist jumped out of the line of fire for the first time in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, sidestepping a question about his history at Bell Centre in Montreal.

"It's so long ago since I played there, so I don't even remember," Lundqvist said.

Lundqvist hasn't played in Montreal since Jan. 15, 2012, serving as the Rangers backup in four straight games at Bell Centre. He hasn't won in the building since March 17, 2009.

In four appearances there since his prior win, Lundqvist is 0-3-1 with an .862 save percentage and 4.63 goals-against average. Canadiens goalie Carey Price is 4-1-0 with three shutouts and two goals allowed (149 saves on 151 shots) in his past five games against the Rangers.


Rangers' Nash staying positive despite scoring slump

Tal Pinchevsky - Staff Writer

GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- The New York Rangers have won consecutive seven-game series on their way to the 2014 Eastern Conference Final, which starts against the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday with Game 1 at Bell Centre (1 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS).

To get this far they've received clutch scoring from a variety of sources, sound defensive play and world-class goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist.

One thing they have not received is a single goal from forward Rick Nash, who led the Rangers during the regular season with 26 goals. It's a frustrating stretch for a player long considered among the NHL's elite scorers, but it has been made bearable by team success and Nash's ability to find other ways to contribute.

"The chances are coming here and there, the defensive game has been solid," Nash said after New York's practice Friday. "I've been focusing on that a bit, but I need to start scoring."

Corey Masisak - Staff Writer

ANAHEIM -- For the second consecutive round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, a series involving two California teams will go the distance.

The first postseason meeting between the Anaheim Ducks and the Los Angeles Kings will conclude with a Game 7 on Friday at Honda Center (9 p.m. ET; NBCSN, TSN, RDS). The road team won the first four games of the series; the home side has prevailed in the past two.

Each team has scored 13 goals. Four of the games have been decided by one goal, and one of the two that wasn't featured an empty-netter.

The winner will claim bragging rights in Southern California and a chance to play the Chicago Blackhawks in the Western Conference Final.
