Davidson says Blue Jackets ready to make statement

Friday, 07.18.2014 / 2:16 PM / News

Other than acquiring forward Scott Hartnell in a trade with the Philadelphia Flyers on June 23, the Columbus Blue Jackets didn't make any major moves this summer. But Columbus president of hockey operations John Davidson sees a fully formed team capable of taking a big step during the 2014-15 season.

"This is a team that I think now is being recognized not just as a team that is young and up-and-coming, it's a pretty good hockey club. We have a chance here to make a real good statement with this upcoming season," Davidson told the Blue Jackets website. "I like this hockey club. I like it a lot. I like its character, I like the way it plays, I like the intestinal fortitude it has, I like how it sticks up for each other. I like all aspects of it. We have a chance to be a very good club."

Sabres sign forward Ennis to multiyear contract

Friday, 07.18.2014 / 1:45 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014

Forward Tyler Ennis signed a multiyear contract with the Buffalo Sabres, the team announced Thursday.

Terms were not disclosed, but multiple media outlets reported it's for five years and $23 million.

"It certainly wasn't straightforward," Sabres general manager Tim Murray said Friday. "The day we signed him we were calling back and forth every 10 minutes. And then we got to a point where we thought, both sides moved, but we got to a point where we thought our last offer was very credible and in line with a lot of players of his caliber in the League."

Martin Brodeur 'still looking for the right fit': report

Friday, 07.18.2014 / 11:17 AM / NHL Free Agency 2014

NHL.com

Goaltender Martin Brodeur remains one of the most prominent names on the NHL free-agent market. He said Thursday it could stay that way for a while.

"I'm still looking for the right fit, and the right fit might not come this summer, it might come later on in the fall," Brodeur told Yahoo Sports. "I'm pretty open-minded. Regardless of what happens, if I play or don't play, I'm ready for anything. I'm looking forward to a new challenge, regardless if it's outside of hockey or still in hockey with a different organization."

There are few apparent openings for a No. 1 goalie as Brodeur looks to move on from the New Jersey Devils, and many Stanley Cup threats seemingly have their backup in place.

"If I'm going to not play with a contender, then definitely I'd like to play a lot," the 42-year-old said. "I'm really open-minded about the situation I'm looking for, but it's pretty specific, and me and my agent (Pat Brisson) are kind of looking at different options."

Canucks' Subban hopes to create own niche

Friday, 07.18.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

VANCOUVER -- It didn't take long before the questions directed at Vancouver Canucks prospect Jordan Subban during development camp focused more on his older brothers.

It never does.

He plays defenseman, the same position as Norris Trophy-winning sibling and Montreal Canadiens star P.K. Subban, so comparisons are inevitable. With middle brother Malcolm Subban coming off his first pro season as a goaltender in the Boston Bruins organization, the questions about family are never far off.

To be clear, none of that bothers the youngest Subban.

"I am used to it by now," Jordan said, adding most of the questions are about P.K. "He's my brother, so I love to talk about him, and it's great to see him have success, but at the same time I am me."

Islanders' Pulock knows competition stiff on defense

Friday, 07.18.2014 / 3:00 AM / NHL Insider

Brian Compton - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- No more junior hockey for Ryan Pulock. The offensive-minded defenseman is ready for his next challenge, which he hopes will be NHL competition as a member of the New York Islanders.

Pulock finished his junior career in 2013-14 as the leading goal-scorer among defensemen in Brandon Wheat Kings history. The Islanders' first-round pick (No. 15) at the 2013 NHL Draft scored 64 goals and 146 assists and played 261 games in four Western Hockey League seasons. He is armed with a slap shot that has been clocked at over 100 mph.

Pulock, who turns 20 on Oct. 6, could start the 2014-15 season with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in the American Hockey League, but he'll head to NHL training camp in September with greater aspirations.

He'll be facing some stiff competition this fall. The Islanders already have Calvin de Haan, Travis Hamonic, Lubomir Visnovsky and Thomas Hickey in the mix on their blue line and signed TJ Brennan, the defenseman of the year in the AHL last season, on July 1. Griffin Reinhart, the Islanders' 2012 first-round pick (No. 4), also is expected to push hard for a roster spot.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.

— Florida Panthers director of player development Brian Skrudland on defenseman Aaron Ekblad's performance at development camp
