George Parros, a hard-working fan favorite during his nine seasons in the NHL, announced his retirement from the League on Friday.

"It's been an honor to play in the greatest League in the world," Parros told the NHL Players' Association. "Thanks to the organizations I've had the good fortune to play for, especially to the Samueli and Molson families," Parros said, mentioning the owners of the Anaheim Ducks and Montreal Canadiens, respectively. "I've had the most amazing support from all of the fans who have supported my many endeavors throughout my career; for that I am eternally grateful. A final thank you to my parents Jim and Lynne, my wife Tiffany and my children who have made this dream of mine a reality."

Parros, 34, was picked by the Los Angeles Kings in the eighth round (No. 222) of the 1999 NHL Draft. He had 18 goals, 36 points and 1,092 penalty minutes in 474 regular-season games with the Kings, Colorado Avalanche, Ducks, Florida Panthers and Canadiens.

Brodeur solid in goal in Blues debut despite loss

Friday, 12.05.2014 / 11:15 AM / NHL Insider

Louie Korac - NHL.com Correspondent

NASHVILLE -- Not playing in eight months, even a future member of the Hockey Hall of Fame like Martin Brodeur was curious about what a return to NHL action would feel like.

After all, a 42-year-old doesn't react like a 22-year old. There's a lot of mileage on Brodeur's body.

But despite a 4-3 loss in his St. Louis Blues debut to the Nashville Predators on Thursday, when Brodeur stopped 20 shots, it was evident there is some game left in the tank. It was Brodeur's first game since April 13, when he was with the New Jersey Devils.

"It was a different feeling for me [Thursday]," Brodeur said. "I haven't played in a long time. And coming in the organization with different players, different team, coaching staff, not sure what to expect. I did it for so long with the same people over and over."

ALFREDSSON TAKES FINAL SKATE WITH SENS . . .

Longtime Ottawa Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson dressed for the warm-up with the Senators after signing a one-day contract with the club as part of his retirement announcement Thursday.

A sixth-round pick (No. 133) by the Senators in the 1994 NHL Draft, Alfredsson spent 17 of his 18 seasons in Ottawa, capturing the Calder Memorial Trophy in 1995-96, the King Clancy Memorial Trophy in 2011-12 and the Mark Messier NHL Leadership Award in 2012-13. He also led the Senators to the Presidents’ Trophy in 2002-03 and the Stanley Cup Final in 2007, when he led all players with 14 goals and 22 points in 20 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Among his many accomplishments, Alfredsson ranks first in Senators history in goals (426), assists (682), points (1,108) and games played (1,178). He returns to Ottawa after a one-season stint with the Detroit Red Wings; he had 18 goals and 31 assists in 68 games.

Super 16: Atlantic contenders ready to push Bruins

Friday, 12.05.2014 / 3:00 AM / Super 16: NHL Power Rankings

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

Time remains undefeated in life, and it may be causing a shift in the balance of power for the Atlantic Division.

The Boston Bruins have four division titles, two Stanley Cup Final appearances and a championship in the past six seasons, but they also didn't have quite the cache of young star players other successful franchises like the Los Angeles Kings, Chicago Blackhawks and Pittsburgh Penguins possess.

Injuries have been a problem so far this season, but so too has a trio of teams with younger impact talent. This could be a problem for the Bruins not just in 2014-15 but in the years to follow. The Montreal Canadiens, Detroit Red Wings and especially the Tampa Bay Lightning look poised to contend for Atlantic Division titles for the next several seasons, in part because of their collections of young talent.

Senators enjoy Alfredsson tribute despite loss

Friday, 12.05.2014 / 12:03 AM / NHL Insider

Chris Stevenson - NHL.com Correspondent

OTTAWA -- Chris Phillips said it was an emotional night when former captain Daniel Alfredsson joined the Ottawa Senators for one last warm-up before their game against the New York Islanders on Thursday.

Alfredsson, who played 17 seasons with the Senators, scoring 426 goals in 1,178 regular-season games, announced his retirement earlier in the day.

"I was a little (choked up) actually," Phillips said. "I held back any tears, but , yeah, I’m a fan of this team too, and being able to play with him and watch him for so long and what he did. … At the same time, knowing that day is closer for me than further, makes you think a lot about it. I found it very emotional."

PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Patric Hornqvist left the game against the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday midway through the second period with an apparent upper-body injury.

With a little less than 9:00 remaining in the period, Hornqvist was hit by Canucks defenseman Ryan Stanton near the blue line closest to the Vancouver zone as play shifted back the other direction at Consol Energy Center.

Hornqvist immediately skated toward the bench and walked down the runway to the locker room.

Alfredsson skates with Senators one last time

Thursday, 12.04.2014 / 9:19 PM / News

Chris Stevenson - NHL.com Correspondent

OTTAWA -- It was a fitting ending to Daniel Alfredsson's last skate with the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.

Alfredsson, who's been dealing with recurring back problems, signed a ceremonial agreement earlier in the day that allowed him to retire as a member of the Senators, for whom he played 17 seasons.

He then skated in warm-ups with Ottawa as they prepared to play the New York Islanders at Canadian Tire Centre.

With a minute to go in the pregame skate, Alfredsson and the Senators engaged in a giant game of keep-away, the player with the puck trying to hang on to it against his teammates.

Keep-away was one of Alfredsson's favorites. It was usually the way he and a few of his teammates would conclude practice.

With the Foo Fighters' "My Hero" playing over the sound system, the fans cheered as Alfredsson grabbed the puck and stickhandled his way through a few of the other players.

It was a touching moment as Alfredsson, who played the 2013-14 season with the Detroit Red Wings, returned to the city where he started his NHL career to say thank you and goodbye to Senators fans.

"Oh my God, that could've been one of my best skates ever," Alfredsson said. "Just basically knowing that this is the last time I get to experience this and in this atmosphere. I couldn't have played, I'm not in good enough shape. But I skated a couple laps and you feel like, 'Maybe a few shifts.' It gets the juices flowing, the energy that's in the rink. It's incredible. "

Bryzgalov hopes to play for Ducks 'within 10 days'

Thursday, 12.04.2014 / 6:18 PM / News

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

ANAHEIM -- Ilya Bryzgalov admits he hasn't been staying in optimum playing condition. To hear him describe it, he's been in shutdown mode, living in southern New Jersey and coaching his son's hockey team.

He was driving his son to a hockey tournament when his agent called him with a suggestion.

"[He said] 'Maybe you should stop coaching and maybe you [should] have a desire to return to the NHL and play hockey,'" Bryzgalov said.

The agent told him his former team, the Anaheim Ducks, were interested in giving him a professional tryout contract, and Bryzgalov was excited at the opportunity to come home. He skated at Honda Center before he spoke with reporters by phone Thursday.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.

— Ducks forward Kyle Palmieri following a loss to the Blackhawks in Game 6 on Wednesday
