Posts Tagged David Steckel
The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded center David Steckel to the Anaheim Ducks for right winger Ryan Lasch and a 2014 7th round pick.
The 31-year old Steckel was drafted by the LA Kings, 30th overall in the first round of the 2001 draft. He carries a $1.1 salary cap hit and will be a UFA at the end of the season.
The 26-year old Lasch signed a two year contract worth $1.25 million with the Ducks, and will be a UFA after the 2013-14 season.
James Mirtle via twitter: Lasch is currently playing in Sweden but will be joining the AHL Marlies.
Corey Pronman via twitter: Pronman had Lasch as the Ducks 14th best prospect last summer.
Chris Nichols via twitter: Ducks GM Murray: “#NHLDucks GM Murray: “Steckel is a tremendous faceoff man and penalty killer, something that will really help our club.”
Blues notes … Avalanche got Burned … Scouting the Flyers, Blues-Hawks, Bruins-Sens … Leafs Will Need to Make Roster Moves
- Andy Strickland of TrueHockey: A Blues trade of Kevin Shattenkirk for Daniel Briere makes zero sense for the Blues. Shattenkirk will eventually sign a contract extension with Blues. They talked before the lockout and will resume talks at some point, which could be after the season. He has arbitration rights and will get something north of $3 million a year. Comparables for the 22-year old would be Cam Fowler, Tyler Myers, Victor Hedman, John Carlson and Luke Schenn. The Blues could be looking for depth on the blueline, with the Maple Leafs, Jets, Coyotes and Sharks possibly looking to move a defenseman or two. The Blues can take on some salary.
- Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: After matching the Ryan O’Reilly offer sheet, the Avalanche will now have nearly $58 million tied into next seasons salary cap. That won’t leave them much room for UFA’s under the $64.3 million cap ceiling. They won’t be able to trade O’Reilly until Feb. 28th, 2014. After next season, they’ll have to deal with the expiring contracts of Matt Duchene, Paul Stastny and Gabe Landeskog. Stastny would be a UFA.
What the Flames did today, essentially, was potentially blow out the Avs’ salary structure in the next couple years. The Avs let the Flames set the market for O’Reilly’s value – and they had to swallow their pride and accept it because gambling that they’d get a lottery pick with the Flames’ first-round pick this year was too poor a prospect. How awful would it have been for this team if they’d not only let O’Reilly go to Calgary, but then gotten a worse draft pick maybe thanks to his helping them out the rest of the year in the standings? It would have been a humiliating blow.
And today was humiliating enough for Avs management. They clearly gambled that nobody would break the offer sheet code that most teams live by – especially in the year after a lockout – and that they would be able to dictate to O’Reilly what his market value would be, not the other way around. Well, guess what? They lost that bet.
- Elliott Pap via twitter: The Canucks said that they did not tender an offer sheet to O’Reilly.
- Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News: Oilers president Kevin Lowe, Sr. VP Craig MacTavish and Eastern scout Marey Gare took in the Flyers game on Wednesday. The Oilers are believed to be looking to move Ryan Whitney and Ales Hemsky. Darren Dreger via twitter: Dreger downplays their presence at the game as they are scouting for Team Canada before going to sports analytics conference in Boston.
- Lou Korac via twitter: Scouting the Blues-Blackhawks: Rangers, Predators, Avalanche, Oilers, Blue Jackets, Jets, Lightning, Hurricanes, Canadiens and Canucks.
- Craig Custance via twitter: Western Conference teams scouting the Bruins-Senators game.
- David Alter of Sportsnet: The Maple Leafs will need to figure out who they’ll send down to the Marlies when Matt Frattin returns, which may happen any day now. Only Nazem Kadri, Leo Komarov and Korbinian Holzer don’t need to clear waivers, but all are playing big roles. If it’s a forward, David Steckel is the likeliest choice. John-Michael Liles has been a healthy scratch lately. Mike Komisarek has only played in four games and has s $4.5 million salary cap hit. The Leafs could send Frattin down to the Marlies on a conditioning stint. Joffrey Lupul could be back soon as well, so another decision will have to be made.
Trade Rumors: Weiss, Iginla, Kiprusoff, Sabres, Sens, Caps, Flyers, Panthers, Kulemin, Bernier, Steckel and O’Reilly
- Elliotte Friedman of CBC: Panthers GM Dale Tallon on Stephen Weiss rumors, who will be a UFA and has a no-movement clause.
“Ridiculous,” Tallon said. “I’m not trading him, I’m going to try to sign him.”
Travis Zajac’s 8 year, $46 million contract could be in the ballpark of what Tallon may offer. There are 7 pending UFA centers who, in theory, could center a first line: Ryan Geltzlaf, Valtteri Filppula, Weiss, Derek Roy, Mike Ribeiro and Patrik Elias. Would Jarome Iginla be interested in Flyers if he considered moving on? Are they a cup contender this year though? The Penguins may have an opening for him. The Canucks offered Cody Hodgson to the Capitals for John Carlson last year. Flames Miikka Kiprusoff doesn’t have a no-trade clause, but it doesn’t mean the Flames are in a rush to move him. The Sabres have eight defenseman, and GM Darcy Regier has told teams, ”Give me a reason to trade one.”
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Sources say it will likely be another week before the trade market shakes loose, more separation between playoff and non-playoff teams. Senators GM Bryan Murray likely won’t find a Jason Spezza replacement unless he gives up a top prospect. Capitals George McPhee and Flyers Paul Holmgren have been working the phones desperately.
“There’s not many players available,” said a league executive Monday. “If you want one, and one becomes available, you better go snap him up quick cause the market is light.”
- Jimmy Murphy via twitter: Even though the Panthers are denying it, Murphy is hearing more and more that Stephen Weiss is available. If Murphy was Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli, he’d go after him.
- Jimmy Murphy via twitter: Murphy thinks that if any team is looking for a young, skilled defenseman, they should try to pry Dmitri Kulikov from the Panthers. His holdout and bad start may make him available.
- Bruce Garrioch via twitter: The trade market is quiet as GMs aren’t ready to make any moves just yet. Teams aren’t out of it yet. Flyers GM Paul Holmgren is working the phones.
- The Fourth Period: The Penguins could be looking for a winger to play with Evgeni Malkin, and they could once again be looking at Maple Leafs Nikolai Kulemin. The Penguins asked about him last year, and apparently had a 1st round pick on the table, which was turned down by Brian Burke. The Penguins had 2 scouts at the Leafs-Hurricanes game on Monday.
- Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: (mailbag) Matheson doesn’t see the Oilers trading for Jonathan Bernier. There would be a better chance of the Maple Leafs trading for him. The Kings need some scoring and help on the blueline.
- Bob Stauffer via twitter: Stauffer thinks that Maple Leafs David Steckel makes sense for a short term fix at center for the Oilers. Steckel is likely available as he’s in and out of the Leafs lineup. He’s been one of the top face-off guys for years. Ryan O’Reilly is a type of guy the Oilers should target if his contract stalemate drags on. He’s a strong, skilled two-way center.
- Jim Matheson via twitter: The longer O’Reilly’s stalemate goes on, the more feeling you get that he’s not long for the Avalanche. Matheson doesn’t think he’s a $5 million player though.

Coyotes wanted Kadri for Turris … Flames and Leafs injury update … Havlat out 6-8 weeks … Richards cleared … Engelland to have hearing
- Darren Dreger via twitter: The Maple Leafs were never really in on Kyle Turris before he was dealt to the Senators. The Coyotes may have asked for Nazem Kadri, and the Leafs have high hopes for him.
- John Down of the Calgary Herald: Flames defenseman Mark Giordano skated yesterday, but it wasn’t the first time since he tore a leg muscle on Nov. 29t, just the first time he was caught by the media. “It’s a good thing,” acknowledged coach Brent Sutter. “It’s a slow process, but it’s just another step in the right direction. He’s still a long ways away, but it’s definitely very encouraging.” Defensemnan Anton Babchuk is getting close to returning from his Nov. 8th hand injury. David Moss had a recent setback in the healing process on the cracked bone in his foot. Forward Greg Nemisz was recalled yesterday.
- Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News: Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta will return to the lineup tonight against the Maple Leafs. Brad Boyes is getting close but will wait a few more days. Thomas Vanek has had 2 straight ‘maintenance’ days, but will play tonight.
- David Pollak via twitter: Sharks winger Martin Havlat will be out 6-8 weeks after he had a partial tear of his hamstring repaired.
- Helene Elliott via twitter: Kings center Mike Richards has been cleared to play.
- James Gordon via twitter: Senators Michalek is ‘unlikely’ for tonight, but ‘possible’ for Friday. Craig Anderson will start in net for the Sens tonight.

- Nick Kypreos via twitter: Penguins defenseman Deryk Engelland will have a phone disciplinary hearing for his high hit on Blackhawks Marcus Kruger.
Capitals fire Boudreau, bring in Dale Hunter … Small market for Iginla? Miller wanting out of Buffalo? Ducks keeping coach, big 3 … Lehtonen to IR
- Bob McKenzie via twitter: The Capitals have fired Bruce Boudreau, and have hired Dale Hunter as their new head coach.
- Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: If Jarome Iginla decides he’d accept a trade from the Flames, Matheson doesn’t see a big market for him as he carries a $7 million salary this year and next, and most Stanley Cup contenders are close to the ceiling or maxed out. Matheson wonders if the Stars would be interested. Blue Jackets forward Derick Brassard has been shopped around the league, but there have been no takers for him and his $3+ million salary. The Oilers would definitely like to acquire Cody Franson, but Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke is in no hurry to move him. Matheson keeps hearing that Sabres goalie is out with a concussion and wouldn’t mind if the Sabres dealt him. The Sabres could use a top center, but have other holes as well. His wife is a California based actress but no California based team needs a goalie. Will the Lightning be calling the Wild about their goaltenders during the summer? Josh Harding will be a UFA and Niklas Backstrom’s deal ends after next year. Would the Predators consider moving backup goalie Anders Lindback, and toss in a a Ryan Ellis or Jonathan Blum to get a forward? Matheson heard that the Wild turned down a Josh Harding for James van Riemsdyk trade when JVR was still at the University of New Hampshire a couple years ago.
- Helene Elliott of the LA Times: Ducks GM Bob Murray said he won’t fire coach Randy Carlyle and he won’t trade any of Ryan Getzlaf, Cory Perry or Bobby Ryan, though he has had offers for them.
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: The Senators are 1 of 4 teams that have interest in Blue Jackets Derick Brassard. Brassard’s $3.2 million salary for the next 2 years is a stumbling block. The Sens, and pretty much every other team, have closed the book on Kyle Turris.
- Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News: The Stars have placed Kari Lehtonen on the IR. They are still waiting for results from the MRI, but Heika thinks it could be a long-term injury. They have recalled Richard Bachman. Francis Wathier was also recalled, so Vernon Fiddler could be out.
- Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal: The Oilers could find out today the results for Taylor Hall’s MRI. If Hall is out for awhile, Matheson thinks they should move Magnus Paajarvi up with Shawn Horcoff and Ales Hemsky. If Paajarvi can’t cut with Horcoff and Hemsky, it might be time for him to spend a few weeks in Oklahoma City in the AHL. Renny said that sending Paajarvi down “has been discussed.”
- Jonas Siegel via twitter: Maple Leafs coach Ron Wilson expects Carl Gunnarsson and David Steckel to return on Wednesday.
- Rich Hammond of the LA Kings Insiders: Dustin Penner has been given clearance to resume full activity. He won’t play tonight, but should soon. Andrei Loktionov and Trent Hunter spot could be in jeopardy. Scott Parse hasn’t been on the ice in 3 weeks, and there is no indication when he’ll start.
Changes coming for Ducks? 8 teams called about Turris … Perron update … JVR out 1-2 weeks … More Leafs injuries
- Randy Youngman of the OC Register: The Ducks have lost 6 in a row, and sit 1 point out of last place with 6-12-4 record. Is it time to fire the coach? Trade one of their top players? They’re likely not going to fire Randy Carlyle. Bobby Ryan said “So we can’t blame them if they pull the trigger on something.” If GM Bob Murray were to make a major trade, it would likely involve Ryan Getzlaf or Bobby Ryan, as Corey Perry is probably untouchable.
- Andy Strickland via twitter: 8 teams have called Coyotes GM Don Maloney within a half hour after they signed Kyle Turris. Two teams were strongly considering signing him to an offer sheet.
- Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: Blues forward Andy McDonald’s concussion status is “status quo.” He’s not skating yet. On David Perron
“There’s no target date for his return, but he’s skating with the team in full practice situations,” Blues GM Doug Armstrong told ESPN.com on Friday. “When he feels he can go, we’ll put him in.”
Panthers GM Dale Tallon:
“We’re not going to do much. We’re going to keep to the same plan, we’re going to stick with it and see where it takes us,” Tallon told ESPN.com. “There’s a long way to go yet before we make decisions on this team [ahead of the Feb. 27 trade deadline]. But we know we got some good prospects coming so that’s exciting.”
- Sam Carchidi via twitter: James van Riemsdyk will be out a week or two with an undisclosed injury.
- Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette: Canadiens coach Jacques Martin said that there’s a possibility that Andrei Kostitsyn returns to their lineup. He’s been out 10 games with a groin injury.
- Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun: Defenseman Carl Gunnarsson and forward David Steckel left last night’s game Maple Leafs game after blocking shots.
- Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: The Avalanche had Matt Duchene and Paul Stastny back together at practice yesterday, with Milan Hejduk on the right side. Gabriel Landeskog, Ryan O’Reilly and Daniel Winnik were reunited. TJ Galiardi centered Cody McLeod and David Jones. Defenseman Erik Johnson has a groin injury and is doubtful against the Oilers. Peter Mueller also has a groin injury and hasn’t skated for 3 days.
- Scott Cruickshank of the Calgary Herald: Blake Comeau will play on the Flames 3rd line with Roman Horak and Lee Stempniak.
Could Rangers be interested in Leafs Dmen? Iginla practicing … Halvat needing clearence … Orpik may not be ready … Saad makes ‘Hawks … Schenn’s contract notes
- Ron Wilson via twitter: Wilson says: “Steckel immediately improves our PK. Size is a huge bonus. Faceoffs are going to help bigtime in all areas. Can also help on the wing!”
- Pierre LeBrun via twitter: The Maple Leafs are still working the phones after the Steckel trade. They have a surplus of defenseman. Nothing is imminent.
- Josh Rimer via twitter: The Rangers need another defenseman, and could they be looking at Carl Gunnarsson or Mike Komisarek? Cody Franson could be another, he’s not happy being a 7th Dman.
- Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun: Flames captain Jarome Iginla was back skating with teammates after taking 2 weeks off with a bad back. Iginla said: “We definitely took more time to make sure (it’s 100%) and everything’s been really positive. Hopefully, it’s just a one-off and not an issue down the road.” Iginla is 16 goals away from 500.
- David Pollak of the San Jose Mercury News: Sharks forward Martin Havlat headed to Cleveland yesterday to have his shoulder examined by his surgeon. If all goes well he’ll get clearance for Saturday’s opener. Tommy Wingels and Jamie McGinn are battling for the last forward spot on the 3rd line with Michal Handzus and Torrey Mitchell.
- Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly: The Flyers have split up the defensive pairing of Kimmo Timonen and Braydon Coburn, who have been together since 2007-08. Timonen is paired with Andrej Meszaros, Coburn with Andeas Lilja. Chris Pronger skates with Matt Carle.
- Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review: Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik practiced yesterday but he doesn’t know when he’ll be able to go. The Pens open up at Vancouver, Edmonton and Calgary.
- Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune: 2011 2nd round pick, Brandon Saad, signed a 3 year entry level deal, and made the Blackhawks opening roster. He also made the ‘Hawks top line, along side Patrick Sharp and Jonathan Toews.
- Renaud Lavoie via twitter: The Islanders signed Jay Pandolfo to a 1 year, $600,000 deal.
- Andy Strickland via twitter: There is zero chance the Blues make a claim on Sean Avery.
- Tom Gulitti of the Bergon Record: Devils forward Travis Zajac is out of his walking boot and has begun physical therapy. GM Lou Lamoriello said the “worst-case scenario” would have Zajac return “some time after New Year’s.”
- Sam Carchidi via twitter: Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said that Brayden Schenn needs to play some game in the AHL but could be back fairly soon. Schenn has a “B” bonus of $1.265 million this year if he played 25 or more in all 82 games. Dustin Leed via twitter: Capgeek confirms that Schenn’s contract will dip to a $1.7 million cap hit from $3.1 million after 1 day in the minors. Darren Dreger via twitter: 1 AHL game makes his cap hit $1.75 million. He’ll get a $900,000 salary and $850,000 in bonuses. He has a similar “B” bonus next year with a $1.405 payout for all 82 NHL games.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded a 2012 4th round pick to the New Jersey Devils for David Steckel.
Steckel is famous for the hit he put on Sidney Crosby that gave him his first concussion.
I would think that the Maple Leafs have something else they are working on.
- Canadiens acquire goalie Drew McIntyre from the Thrashers for defenseman Brett Festerling.
- Capitals acquire Jason Arnott from the NJ Devils for David Steckel and a 2nd round pick.
- Canucks acquire Maxim Lapierre and MacGregor Sharp from the Anaheim Ducks for Joel Perrault and a 2011 3rd round pick.
- Canucks acquire Chris Higgins from the Panthers for a 2011 3rd round pick and defenseman Evan Oberg.
- Philadelphia Flyers acquire Tom Sestito from the the Blue Jackets for Greg Moore and Michael Chapot.
- Flames acquire Freddy Modin from the Thrashers for a 7th round pick.
- NY Rangers acquire John Mitchell from the Maple Leafs for a 2012 7th round pick.
- Ducks acquire Brad Winchester from the Blues for a 2012 3rd round pick.
- Hurricanes acquire Bryan Allen from the Panthers for Sergei Samsonov.
- Oilers acquire Kevin Montgomery from the Avalanche for Shawn Belle.
