Blues sign Gomez, place Berglund on injured reserve

Wednesday, 10.07.2015 / 12:10 PM / News

The St. Louis Blues on Wednesday signed center Scott Gomez to a one-year contract and placed center Patrik Berglund on long-term injured reserve.

Gomez, 35, came to training camp on a professional tryout contract after scoring seven goals and 34 points in 58 games last season with the New Jersey Devils. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported he got a two-way contract worth $575,000 at the NHL level and $200,000 at the American Hockey League level.

"He gives us really good insurance that if something happens to one of our top two centers, he can go in there," general manager Doug Armstrong said in comments tweeted by the Blues.

Crystal ball has answers for 2015-16 questions

Wednesday, 10.07.2015 / 10:40 AM / 2015-2016 Season Preview

The 2015-16 NHL season starts Wednesday and is full of interesting storylines.

Instead of waiting until it ends nine months from now, we decided to look into the future and do some prognosticating. We asked senior writer Dan Rosen to channel his fortune-telling powers and use his answers to shed some light on eight telling questions about the upcoming season.

Here are the answers:

1. Will Phil Kessel score 50 goals in his first season with the Pittsburgh Penguins?

Though it's hard to predict a player will score 40 goals, let alone 50, because of how difficult it is to reach those numbers, let's remember that Kessel scored 37 goals two seasons ago playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs with Tyler Bozak as his center. This is not a knock on Bozak by any means, but you won't find anyone anywhere willing to compare him to Sidney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin.

Flames eager to build on success from last season

CALGARY -- The narrative around the Calgary Flames has changed dramatically in 12 months.

One year ago, the Flames were among the teams expected to be near the bottom of the NHL standings and contend for a lottery pick. But on the eve of the 2015-16 season, expectations are that Calgary can contend for the Pacific Division title and make another run in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

That is the power of a 97-point performance last season and a trip to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in 11 years.

The Flames are ready to pick up right where they left off. The quest begins Wednesday when Calgary hosts the 2015 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off, an all-day hockey festival before the Flames open their season at Scotiabank Saddledome against the Vancouver Canucks (10 p.m. ET; Sportsnet, TVA Sports 2).

The organization is pumped up for the new season.

NEWARK, N.J. -- Retired NHL goaltender Martin Brodeur has no regrets over how he ended his career after setting numerous records and winning three Stanley Cup championships as a member of the New Jersey Devils.

In Brodeur's eyes, playing the final seven games of his career with the St. Louis Blues was all part of his incredible journey.

"You know what, I'm at peace with that decision," Brodeur told "Looking back, I have zero regrets in how I closed out my career. In the perfect storm finishing up as a member of the Devils would have been great but I never thought it would happen that way, never saw it coming."

The Devils announced Tuesday they will retire Brodeur's No. 30 on Feb. 9 at Prudential Center; a statue of Brodeur will also be built outside Prudential Center in Championship Plaza.

Devils to retire Brodeur's number before Feb. 9 game

NEWARK, N.J. -- Martin Brodeur, who led the New Jersey Devils to three Stanley Cup championships while setting a host of NHL goaltending records, including most career wins and shutouts, will have his No. 30 retired by the Devils prior to their game Feb. 9 against the Edmonton Oilers. A statue of Brodeur will also be built outside Prudential Center.

Devils co-owner Joshua Harris made the announcement Tuesday at a press conference at Prudential Center.

Brodeur came a long way to get to this point after being selected by the Devils with the 20th pick in the 1990 NHL Draft.

"I didn't know where New Jersey was, but my agent was happy and said that means American dollars, so that's good," Brodeur said. "I had no clue what exactly I was getting into and my father (Denis Brodeur) told me that I was a number in an organization and that it was up to me to become No. 1 (on the depth chart), and eventually I did."

Canadiens pit continuity against new-look Maple Leafs

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 4:00 PM / 2015 Molson Canadian NHL Face-Off

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

MONTREAL -- The Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs will raise the curtain on the 2015-16 NHL season Wednesday at Air Canada Centre on opposite ends of the team-building spectrum.

The Maple Leafs offseason was defined by change, as it should be for a team that finished 27th in the overall standings last season. The expectations in Toronto are modest, looking to take the first step on what appears to be a long journey back toward the Stanley Cup Playoffs and, eventually, the franchise's first Stanley Cup since 1967.

The Canadiens, on the other hand, sought continuity, making minimal personnel changes and looking to build on three straight playoff appearances by adding a fourth, one they can legitimately hope will end with new captain Max Pacioretty raising the Stanley Cup.

The contrast between the NHL's two oldest and most iconic franchises is striking, and it will be on full display Wednesday (7 p.m. ET; SN, TVA Sports) as the Maple Leafs look to establish the type of team identity the Canadiens already seemingly have.

Devils acquire forward O'Neill from Kings

Tuesday, 10.06.2015 / 3:37 PM / News

Newark, NJ – The New Jersey Devils today acquired forward Brian O'Neill from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for a conditional seventh-round selection in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. In the event that New Jersey signs O'Neill to a new NHL Standard Player's Contract for the 2016-17 season, New Jersey will transfer its own seventh-round pick in 2017 to Los Angeles. The announcement was made by Devils' Executive Vice President/General Manager Ray Shero.

O'Neill, 27, has spent the past three-plus seasons with Manchester (AHL). The 5-9, 175-lb. forward appeared in 192 games with the Monarchs from 2012 through 2015, recording 52 goals and 92 assists for 144 points and 116 penalty minutes. In 2014-15, O'Neill was named the AHL's Most Valuable Player, leading the league in points (80), assists (58) and plus/minus (+30, tie). He then finished third in the AHL with 10g-10a-20pts and 12 penalty minutes in 19 post-season games and helped lead the Monarchs to the 2015 Calder Cup Championship. O'Neill was also named to the league's Second All-Star Team and to the Eastern Conference roster for the All-Star Game last season.
