Hopefully Jagr will slow down in NJ, as they are the worst with speeding tickets. Jagr was like Mario Andretti for many years in Pittsburgh.

Canucks: Bure’s No. 10 will be retired in 2013-14

Ryan Dadoun

Jul 24, 2013, 9:02 AM EDT

Less than a year ago Pavel Bure was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame and he’ll receive another tremendous honor in the near future.

The Vancouver Canucks have confirmed that they will retire Bure’s No. 10 during the 2013-14 campaign.

“It will for sure be one of the moments of my life,” Bure said. “It’s a huge honor, it’s one of those things that I never even dreamed about when I started to play hockey.

“Even when I was playing hockey for the Canucks I remember Stan Smyl was getting the same ceremony and it still didn’t even cross my mind in those days that one-day I’d be there. Fortunately good things have happened and it’s a big thing.”

Bure spent the first 428 games of his career with the Vancouver Canucks and scored 254 goals and 478 points in that span. He’s the franchise leader in terms of career goals per game and points per contest.

His tenure with Vancouver ended with him demanding a trade, but Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini previously defended Bure over what happened.

“He never had problems with the fans,” Aquilini said in April. “He had problems with management, but never the fans.”

Canucks sign Weise — one year, $750,000

Jason Brough

Jul 24, 2013, 11:08 AM EDT

The Vancouver Canucks have avoided salary arbitration with physical forward Dale Weise by signing the 24-year-old to a one-year, $750,000 contract, according to TSN’s Darren Dreger.

Weise played 40 games for the Canucks in 2013, mostly on the fourth line, scoring three goals with three assists and 43 penalty minutes.

New Canucks coach John Tortorella has said he wants Vancouver to play with more of an edge in 2013-14, which could mean an opportunity for Weise.

Of note, coach and player have been together before with the New York Rangers.

“He did a wonderful job when he came into New York,” said Weise in June, before Tortorella had been hired by the Canucks. “They had a good team, but they didn’t get the extra push from the coach for whatever reason. He came in and changed the culture there. He demands a lot from players. I think you can kind of look around and see that his style is kind of fading out of the coaching. There’s a way to be hard on guys and to push guys, but I think nowadays you’ve got to be a little more of a communicator. You can’t just put guys in the dirt and expect guys to get out of there themselves.”

Chicago signs Winchester to one-year deal

Mike Halford

Jul 24, 2013, 6:38 PM EDT

After a year out of the NHL, Brad Winchester is looking to get back in.

On Wednesday, the veteran forward agreed to terms with Chicago on a one-year deal, according to TSN. Financial terms of the contract were not released.

Winchester, 32, spent last year with AHL Milwaukee after failing to latch on with an NHL club following the lockout.

His last full season in the league came in 2011-12, when he appeared in 67 games with San Jose, recording 10 points. The 6-foot-5, 230-pounder’s best season came in 2008-09, when he scored a career-high 13 goals and 21 points for St. Louis.

The Winchester signing is GM Stan Bowman’s latest in an offeseason filled with veteran acquisitions. Chicago brought back 39-year-old goalie Nikolai Khabibulin for another kick at the can, and also inked 27-year-old defenseman Mike Kostka, who spent last year in Toronto.

Earlier this summer, the ‘Hawks re-upped with 36-year-old Michal Handzus and 34-year-old Michal Rozsival.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed defenceman Paul Ranger to a one-year contract worth around $1 million.

The 28-year-old spent last season with the AHL's Toronto Marlies, where he played 51 games and had eight goals and 17 assists.

Ranger is a veteran of five NHL seasons, all with the Tampa Bay Lightning. He was out of hockey between 2010-12 for personal reasons, and returned to the game after signing with the Marlies last August.

He was a sixth-round pick of the Lightning in 2002.

The St. Louis Blues announced Thursday that the club has re-signed restricted free agent goaltender Jake Allen to a two-year contract.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Allen receives a two-way contract in the first year that pays $750,000 in the NHL and $125,000 in the AHL. The second year is a one-way deal worth $850,000.

Allen, 22, led all rookie goaltenders this past season with nine wins (9-4) and a 2.46 goals-against average. He ranked second among rookies with a .905 save percentage.

He also dressed in 35 games with the American Hockey League's Peoria Rivermen, posting a 13-19-2 record along with a 2.89 goals against average and a .904 save percentage.

The Fredericton, New Brunswick native was drafted by the Blues in the second round, 34th overall, in the 2008 NHL Draft.

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced on Thursday that the club has signed general manager Dave Nonis to a five-year contract extension.

"Ownership and management felt it was critical to extend David now for a lengthy period of time and to reward him for the progression of the Leafs and Marlies," said Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment President and Chief Executive Officer Tim Leiweke in a statement.

"This extension will allow David the time to build his kind of team to produce steady results, year after year. Everyone is excited about his ability and grasp of the NHL landscape and today's new contract agreement will offer the Leafs consistency and a long-term vision."

Nonis, 47, became the 15th general manager in Toronto franchise history when he was named to the post on January 9. The Leafs advanced to the playoffs for the first time since 2004 by securing the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference by virtue of their 57 points earned in the 48-game regular season. He originally joined the Leafs in the role of senior vice president of hockey operations on December 6, 2008.

"I'm very grateful to Tim Leiweke and our ownership group for this contract extension," said Nonis. "Together with our hockey operations staff, we'll continue to patiently put the building blocks in place which will lead us to future success."

The Burnaby, British Columbia native began his hockey management career in 1990 with the Vancouver Canucks following a standout hockey career at the University of Maine that saw him captain the team to back-to-back NCAA championship tournaments. After his first stint with the Canucks, he joined the National Hockey League as the League's manager of hockey operations in 1994. He returned to Vancouver in 1998 as the team's senior vice president and director of hockey operations. On May 6th, 2004 he was named the youngest general manager in the history of the Canucks.

While general manager of the Canucks, Nonis' teams compiled a record of 130 wins, 91 losses, and 25 ties. He also served as the general manager of Canada's National Men's Team for the 2011 IIHF World Championship In Slovakia.

Report: Grabovski narrows list to three teams that aren’t Winnipeg

Jason Brough

Jul 25, 2013, 4:57 PM EDT

One painfully slow Thursday in hockey news equals another Mikhail Grabovski update.

According to TSN’s Aaron Ward, Grabovski — an unrestricted free agent after being bought out by Toronto — has narrowed his list of suitors to three teams.

While it wasn’t reported which three teams remain in the mix to sign the 29-year-0ld center — or if the three teams Grabovski is focused on are the same three teams that his agent said were “very interested” in his client — one team it’s not, says Ward, is Winnipeg.

So we suppose if you’re going to take one thing from this post, it’s that Mikhail Grabovski will not be playing for the Winnipeg Jets next season.

Report: ‘Hawks to announce Quenneville extension Friday

Mike Halford

Jul 25, 2013, 6:18 PM EDT

After leading Chicago to its second Stanley Cup in the last four seasons, Joel Quenneville is going to get rewarded.

According to multiple sources, the club is set to announce a contract extension for Quenneville on Friday, ensuring ‘Coach Q’ won’t go anywhere after his current three-year deal expires at the end of 2013-14.

The Blackhawks have already announced they’ll be holding a “major press conference” tomorrow, though the club didn’t specify what it’d be announcing.

The timing of the move is similar to Quenneville’s last extension, which came shortly after Chicago captured the 2010 Stanley Cup championship.

Though he’s only been with the Blackhawks for five seasons, Quenneville, 54, has emerged as one of the franchise’s most successful bench bosses and one of the most decorated coaches in Chicago history.

He, along with Phil Jackson (Chicago Bulls), George Halas (Chicago Bears) and Frank Chance (Chicago Cubs) are some of the few to win multiple titles with their respective teams.

In terms of Blackhawks success, Quenneville — currently second with 222 — still has a ways to go before catching franchise leader Billy Reay, who coached the ‘Hawks from 1963-76 and racked up 516 career wins.

‘Canes sign ex-Sabres forward Gerbe: one year, $550,000

Mike Halford

Jul 26, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

The Carolina Hurricanes have made an interesting free agent pickup, signing former Buffalo forward Nathan Gerbe to a one-year, two-way deal worth $550,000.

“Nathan has had success on the NHL level and should compete for a job with the Hurricanes during training camp,” said ‘Canes VP of Hockey Operations Ron Francis.

Gerbe — who, at 5-foot-5, is the NHL’s shortest player — spent his entire five-year career in Buffalo before receiving a buyout (regular, not compliance) in early June.

The 25-year-old had struggled with health issues over the last few years. He began this season on injured reserve after undergoing back/neck surgery during the lockout and, when activated, failed to make much of an impact offensively, scoring just 5G-5A-10PTS in 42 games.

Gerbe’s best season came in 2010-11, when he scored a career-high 16 goals and 31 points, finishing fifth on the team in goals.

The former Boston College standout should have a decent shot of cracking the ‘Canes roster next season. Carolina currently has just 11 forwards under contract for next season though a 12th, first-round draft pick Elias Lindholm, has signed his entry-level deal and is expected to play at the NHL level right away.

Sens sign NCAA standout Karlsson to two-year deal

Mike Halford

Jul 26, 2013, 1:29 PM EDT

The Ottawa Senators have agreed to terms with former Northeastern University forward Ludwig Karlsson on a two-year, two-way deal, the club announced on Friday.

Financial terms of the contract are not yet clear. RDS’ Renaud Lavoie reports the deal has an average annual value of $832,500, while Capgeek reports Karlsson’s cap hit could reach $1.475 million with various bonuses.

Karlsson, 22, is from Sweden but spent the last few years playing in North America — two seasons with USHL Green Bay, followed by two at Northeastern.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder burst onto the NCAA scene as a freshman in 2011-12, scoring a team-high 26 points in 32 games. Injuries derailed his sophomore campaign (Karlsson only played 17 games) but didn’t diminish interest from pro teams.

Prior to signing with Ottawa, Karlsson attended Nashville’s prospects camp in early July and took part in the Anaheim Ducks development camp in 2012.

Ducks re-sign Palmieri: three years, $4.4 million

Mike Halford

Jul 26, 2013, 2:28 PM EDT

The Anaheim Ducks have agreed to terms with restricted free agent forward Kyle Palmieri — a three-year, $4.4 million deal with an average annual cap hit of $1.47 million.

Palmieri, 22, enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2013.

He scored a career-best 21 points in 42 games and finished sixth on the team in goals, with 10. He also tied for third on the Ducks in playoff scoring, with five points in seven games during an opening-round loss to Detroit.

Anaheim’s first-round pick (26th overall) at the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Palmieri is part of a youth movement that should have fans in Orange Country excited for the future.

The club has nine top-45 draft picks since 2009 under contract — Palmieri, Peter Holland, Mat Clark, Cam Fowler, Emerson Etem, Devante Smith-Pelley, Rickard Rakell, John Gibson and Hampus Lindholm — and just acquired two more prospects from Ottawa in the Bobby Ryan trade:  Jakob Silfverberg (19 points in 48 games last year) and Stefan Noesen (21st overall, 2011 NHL Entry Draft).

In May, the Ducks also signed reigning Swedish league rookie of the year William Karlsson, second-round pick (53rd overall) at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
