Flyers to honor Briere in pregame ceremony Oct. 27

Tuesday, 08.18.2015 / 9:25 AM / News

The Philadelphia Flyers will honor the recently-announced retirement of former Flyers center Danny Briere in a pre-game ceremony before the Flyers vs. Buffalo Sabres game on October 27 at the Wells Fargo Center.

Briere's 17-year professional career included six prolific seasons (2007-2013) with the Flyers, during which he scored 124 goals and added 159 assists for 283 points in 364 games. Briere recorded 68 points (36G, 32A) in 62 career playoff games with the club, ranking him eighth in playoff scoring on the Flyers All-Time List and seventh in franchise history in playoff goals. He also ranks second in franchise history with nine playoff game-winning goals. His scoring average of 1.10 points per playoff game makes him one of just five Flyers to average more than one point per playoff game (minimum five games), joining Peter Forsberg (1.33, 6 GP), Ken Linseman (1.29, 41 GP), Eric Lindros (1.14, 50 GP), and Claude Giroux (1.07, 57 GP). Over the course of his entire NHL career, Briere recorded 307 goals and 389 assists for 696 points.

Senators expect to build on late-season surge

Tuesday, 08.18.2015 / 3:00 AM /'s 30 in 30 package: 2015-16

Chris Stevenson - Correspondent continues its preview of the 2015-16 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout August.

OTTAWA -- The Ottawa Senators made history with their late-season run to make the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season.

They're hoping the growth of the young players who helped them to a 23-4-4 record down the stretch will ensure a similar rally won't be needed to make the 2016 postseason.

"We know [what happened last season is] not an annual thing," Senators general manager Bryan Murray said. "We can't put ourselves in a position early where we have to have that as another event next year. I expect the team to be better.

OTTAWA -- The Ottawa Senators will be an interesting team this season because the elements that made them the success story of the final two months of last season also present the biggest question marks.

Their charge to the Stanley Cup Playoffs was fueled by a rookie coach, a goaltender making his NHL debut, and a group of young players who successfully handled bigger roles and more responsibility.

Here are three questions the Senators face this season:

Cameron, young players have Senators optimistic

OTTAWA -- The Ottawa Senators returned to the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season after going 21-3-3 in their final 27 games.

The key elements of the Senators' playoff run are back after they made few moves during the offseason.

Here are four reasons for the Senators to be optimistic:

Paul, Puempel among Senators' top five prospects

OTTAWA -- Young forwards Mark Stone, Mike Hoffman, Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Curtis Lazar, and defensemen Cody Ceci and Mark Borowiecki were significant parts of the Ottawa Senators' success last season, which ended in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Despite having a large number of players graduate to the NHL, the Senators have a good core of prospects thanks to recent trades and some strong drafting.

Here is a look at the Senators' top five prospects, according to

Ottawa Senators fantasy hockey outlook

Matt Cubeta - Fantasy Insider

As part of's offseason 30 in 30 package, fantasy hockey insiders Matt Cubeta and Pete Jensen will break down each team's fantasy landscape. They will look at the players at the top of the ranks, an undervalued player, an overvalued player, a deep sleeper (players likely ranked outside the top 200 overall players) and the goalie outlook for each NHL team.

Leading the way: Erik Karlsson

My top ranked fantasy defenseman comes in at No. 13 among all players in my offseason rankings, 10 spots ahead of the next defenseman (P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens). Karlsson was one of two defensemen to lead his team in scoring last season (Oliver Ekman-Larsson of the Arizona Coyotes) and it marked the second straight season he did so on the Senators. His 21 goals and 292 shots on goal last season were career-highs. Since his breakout season in 2011-12 (19 goals and 78 points), Karlsson leads all defensemen with 232 points, 166 assists and 889 shots on goal, and his 66 goals are tied for first with Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators. More remarkable is that Karlsson accomplished all of this despite missing 31 games in 2012-13 because of injury. Simply put, there is no better defenseman in fantasy hockey than Karlsson, and it's not even close. A return to the 70-point mark seems likely for the 25-year-old.

McDavid impresses Oilers' Hall at training session

Taylor Hall skated with Edmonton Oilers teammate Connor McDavid for the first time Monday and did his best to keep up.

"He's got a lot of foot speed," Hall said. "He seems to glide faster than most guys skate at full speed."

Hall and McDavid, each a No. 1 pick at the NHL Draft, were taking part in the BioSteel camp in Toronto. It's the latest step for McDavid, the top pick in June and considered the best prospect to enter the NHL since Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2005.

Dupuis skates with Penguins at new practice facility

Monday, 08.17.2015 / 4:29 PM / News

Pittsburgh Penguins forward Pascal Dupuis on Monday took another step in his return from a blood clot in his lung when he and several teammates skated for the first time at the Penguins' new practice and training facility.

"Being on the ice with teammates, and being allowed more than myself and the trainer [on the ice] here in Pittsburgh, it's a first in basically 10 months," Dupuis told the Penguins website. "It felt great to be out there."

Dupuis, who missed all but 16 games last season, was joined at the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex by forwards Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz, defensemen Ian Cole, Rob Scuderi, Steve Oleksy and Adam Clendening, and goaltenders Marc-Andre Fleury and Jeff Zatkoff.

Ducks sign forward Santorelli to one-year contract

Monday, 08.17.2015 / 2:38 PM / NHL Free Agency 2015

Forward Mike Santorelli signed a one-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks on Monday.

Financial terms were not released, but reported the contract is worth $875,000.

Santorelli, 29, has 55 goals, 120 points and 70 penalty minutes in 336 regular-season games with the Nashville Predators, Florida Panthers, Winnipeg Jets, Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs.

Briere announces retirement after 17 seasons

Monday, 08.17.2015 / 12:05 PM / News

Center Daniel Briere announced his retirement from the NHL on Monday after 17 seasons with five teams.

Briere, 37, played for the Phoenix Coyotes, Buffalo Sabres, Philadelphia Flyers, Montreal Canadiens and Colorado Avalanche. He scored 307 goals and had 696 points in 973 regular-season games, and had 53 goals and 116 points in 124 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

He announced his retirement in a bylined story in Le Droit, a French newspaper in his hometown of Gatineau, Quebec, amid speculation on his future.

"This is not a decision that can be taken lightly. I've been thinking about it for weeks," Briere wrote. "In fact, I first began bouncing the idea around in my head last winter, when I was in Colorado. I felt far away from my children, who stayed in Philadelphia. It wasn’t really an easy situation for me. ... I'm putting an end to my career in order to become more involved in the lives of my three boys. They are at an age when it is crucial to have a father at home.

"This summer, the more time I spent with them, the less I saw myself leaving home one more time to start up the engine for another season. If I took my time before making my decision, it was because I wanted to make sure I wasn’t making the wrong one."
