Gilles Tremblay, who played nine NHL seasons for the Montreal Canadiens and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame as a broadcaster, died early Wednesday at the age of 75.

Tremblay, a native of Montmorency, Quebec, was a member of four Stanley Cup championship teams with the Canadiens. He had 168 goals and 330 points in 509 regular-season games and was considered a strong two-way player.

His obituary on the Canadiens website states that in Tremblay's first NHL game, Nov. 12, 1960 at the Montreal Forum, he skated on a line with legends Bernie Geoffrion and Jean Beliveau. The Canadiens faced the Detroit Red Wings and Tremblay's job duties that night included keeping an all-time great, Gordie Howe, in check.

Rangers' St. Louis could hit milestone in Tampa return

Wednesday, 11.26.2014 / 12:36 PM / NHL Insider

Corey Long - NHL.com Correspondent

TAMPA – New York Rangers forward Martin St. Louis has a knack for big games on special nights.

On Nov. 25, 2013, the Tampa Bay Lightning honored their former captain upon his return home after playing in his 1000th game earlier in the week. He scored two goals and had an assist against the New York Rangers for the Lightning that night.

On Wednesday the team will honor St. Louis with a pre-game video ceremony in his first game at Amalie Arena since he was traded to the Rangers in March. St. Louis needs two points to reach 1,000 for his career. He scored 953 points (365 goals, 588 assists) with the Lightning over 13 seasons.

"I'd love to do it here," St. Louis said. "I'm hoping for it. With the game in Buffalo being canceled [last week] it seems to have worked out."

The fact that the game falls on the 26th, his number, wasn't lost on St. Louis either.

"I thought that was great," St. Louis said. "Everything seems to be lining up."

Predators' Forsberg emerges as early Calder favorite

Wednesday, 11.26.2014 / 3:00 AM / Trophy Tracker

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Two seasons ago Filip Forsberg was impressing NHL scouts with regularity in his native Sweden.

At the time, he was regarded as the top European skater eligible for the 2012 NHL Draft because he had a nose for the net, better-than-average speed and played an effective two-way game. Goran Stubb, the NHL Director of European Scouting, compared him to Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry because in addition to sacrificing himself to make the big play, he had a knack for scoring the big goal.

"He started playing with men at an early age and when you do that it forces you to mature earlier and forces you to start playing the professional game right away," Colorado Avalanche captain and fellow Swede Gabriel Landeskog said. "I think it's probably helped him in the transition coming over here and having played so many years of professional hockey back home. I played with him on a few teams back home and he's a skilled player, very talented."

Canucks remember Quinn with video, 'Danny Boy'

Tuesday, 11.25.2014 / 11:23 PM / News

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks celebrated the life and legacy of former coach, general manager and president Pat Quinn with a moment of silence and singing of "Danny Boy" prior to playing the New Jersey Devils at Rogers Arena on Tuesday.

Quinn died at age 71 Sunday after a lengthy illness.

The Canucks will wear decals on their helmets with the initials "PQ" inside a four-leaf clover for the rest of the season, a fitting nod to a man known to many as "The Big Irishman," and there are plans to honor Quinn with a larger ceremony at a game later in the season.

After an emotional two days, singer Mark Donnelly hit all the right notes as a video tribute played on the scoreboard and the spotlight shone on Quinn's image in his spot in the Canucks' Ring of Honor.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
