NEW YORK -- New York Islanders defenseman Travis Hamonic has been suspended, without pay, for one game for instigating a fight during the final five minutes of NHL Game No. 903 at Nassau Coliseum this afternoon, March 1, the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety announced today.

Hamonic will forfeit $19,780.22 in salary. In addition, New York Islanders head coach Jack Capuano has been fined $10,000.

Hamonic was assessed a minor penalty for instigation, a major penalty for fighting and a game misconduct at 15:23 of the third period. Both the suspension to the player and the fine of the coach are automatic for a violation of Rule 46.22.


Capitals' Ovechkin reaches 800 career points

BOSTON -- It takes more than 800 career NHL points to impress Washington Capitals coach Adam Oates.

"Ah, that's not a milestone," Oates said in response to a question about Alex Ovechkin's new career total after the Capitals beat the Boston Bruins 4-2 at TD Garden on Saturday.

Oates, who was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame with 1,420 career points, still knows that it's important for the Capitals' overall success to have Ovechkin pass every scoring pit stop as the season and the wing's career unfolds. Ovechkin reached 800 points with two power-play goals against the Bruins.

The Anaheim Ducks on Saturday signed right wing Tim Jackman to a one-year contract extension. Financial terms were not disclosed.

A second-round pick (No. 38) by the Columbus Blue Jackets in 2001, Jackman has career totals of 25 goals, 66 points and 702 penalty minutes in 420 games for the Blue Jackets, Phoenix Coyotes, Los Angeles Kings, New York Islanders, Flames and Ducks.


Devils forward Jagr scores 700th goal

Saturday, 03.01.2014 / 2:16 PM / News


New Jersey Devils forward Jaromir Jagr became the seventh player in NHL history to reach 700 goals when he scored at 3:31 of the second period Saturday in a 6-1 win against the New York Islanders.

Jagr skated in from the right circle and took a shot through traffic that deflected off the skate of Islanders defenseman Andrew MacDonald past goalie Evgeni Nabokov, giving the Devils a 2-0 lead.

"I never consider myself a goal-scorer," Jagr told MSG Network after the game in undoubtedly the understatement of the season, "so to reach 700 goals is big for me."


Penguins rookie Gibbons brings speed to top line

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

CHICAGO -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Brian Gibbons knows what life is like in the fast lane.

In a span of three seasons, the undrafted free agent signee in 2011 has gone from collegiate all-star to American Hockey League all-star to riding shotgun with Sidney Crosby on the Penguins top line.

The 5-foot-8, 170-pound left-handed shot has certainly made the quick transition, literally. He might be the fastest player on the team.

"He creates turnovers with his speed, and he's able to get to loose pucks and create pressure," Crosby said. "He competes and works hard and uses the strength that he has."
