Posts Tagged Jacob Josefson
- Randy Miller via twitter: Flyers GM Paul Holmgren on Daniel Briere’s sore wrist: ”He’s coming along. he’s going to see our doctors Thursday.” Daniel Briere on his injury: ”It seems every day I’m able 2 take the next step, but then there’s something that prevents me from going too hard or all out. I can’t wait to be able to be allowed to get in some control drills and be involved in a little more game situations.”
- Ted Kulfan via twitter: The Wings have recalled Gustav Nyquist to replace injured Mikael Samuelsson.
- Rich Chere via twitter: Devils Adam Henrique is 7 to 10 days away from returning.
- Tom Gulitti via twitter: Devils Jacob Josefson is back on the ice this morning after not practicing yesterday with a sore foot. Center Travis Zajac is also back after missing yesterday after “tweaking something.”
- Wes Gilbertson via twitter: Flames Roman Cervenka has been cleared by doctors. It’s possible that he and Jiri Hudler are in the lineup on Saturday, possibly on the same line.
Enstrom sign 5 year deal … Jamison doesn’t call Doan … Pens have 4 year offer for Doan … Giroux blames Crosby
- Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press: The Jets have re-signed Tobias Enstrom to a 5 year contract extension. TSN is reporting the deal is worth $28.75 million. Enstrom would have been a free agent after next season.
- L.A. Lariviere via twitter: If Shane Doan continues to visit teams after [yesterday], it’ll be clear that Greg Jamison has no financial plan to buy the Coyotes. If Doan doesn’t reach an agreement with the Coyotes [yesterday], signs point to him looking elsewhere. Agent confirms, “unless Shane (says) otherwise.” Potential owner Greg Jamison did not reach out to Doan at all yesterday. It’s basically over, agent can’t believe it. Doan’s agent is now waiting for permission to start negotiations elsewhere. Visits could resume as early as Monday.
- David Shoalts via twitter: Source says that Doan wants a 4 year deal worth $30 million. Will scare more than just the Red Wings off. There are teams that will be willing to go $7 million on a 1 year deal, maybe 2 for Doan. At 36 years old, 4 years is scary. Doan’s agent said they have never demanded 4 years and $30 million.
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Senators Bobby Butler cleared waivers and was bought out. The Penguins are prepared to offer Shane Doan a 4 year deal worth $24 million, if they haven’t done so already. The Senators didn’t show any interest in Alexander Semin. Once the new CBA is in place, there could be plenty of players available.
“My guess is you’re either going to see a lot of players bought out or moved,” said a league executive. “There are going to be teams that have spent to the cap who will have to scramble to get below it.
“I would anticipate we’re going see a lot of players who are on the move. Not sure we’re going to see a lot of trades before then, but the teams that are sitting at — or below — the floor are in a good situation.”
- CSN Philly: Flyers Claude Giroux had 2 surgeries on his wrists this summer, and told the Timmins Press that they are because of Sidney Crosby.y
“Those are from [Sidney] Crosby,” Giroux told the paper. “Every time we’d line up against each other for a face-off during our series, instead of going for the puck when it was dropped, he’d hack me across the wrists. I ended up playing the series against Jersey with one of them fractured and had to go for surgery on both of them after we were out of the playoffs.”
- Tom Gulitti of the Bergon Record: Devils GM Lou Lamoriello is being patient to when it comes to trying to fill the hole left by Zach Parise. The Devils still hope to re-sign Petr Sykora. Jacob Josefson and Mattias Tedenby may get bigger roles. Chances are that Lou at least inquired about Semin, as well as Doan. It’s more likely that the the Devils will look to a trade to bring in a forward. They have 8 defenseman under contract for next year and could use one in a deal.
Carter’s return unknown … Boychuk injured … Jones wants to stay … Selanne to know by July 1st … Milbury’s Crosby comments
- Rich Hammond of the LA Kings Insider: When Kings forward Jeff Carter will be able to return is still not known. According to GM Dean Lombardi, Carter’s ankle is going to be sore for a while. Ideally the Kings would like to keep Carter off the ice until the playoffs start, but they are still no guaranteed a spot.
- Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald: Bruins defenseman Johnny Boychuk had to be helped off the ice as he appeared to injury his left knee. He was seen limping around after the game, but was at least walking on his own. More will be known today.
- Adrian Dater of the Denver Post: Avalanche forward David Jones doesn’t know if he’ll be back with the team next season. Jones will be a UFA, and despite wanting to sign an extension by now, the Avs rarely do contracts in-season.
“It’s unfortunate they don’t do any of their signings during a season,” Jones said Tuesday, the Avs’ fourth consecutive day without a game. “Which is fine, and just something you have to adjust to. But you can’t really think about that too much right now. We still have games to play and have a hope we can make the playoffs.”
Jones currently makes $2.5 million and could get a deal in the $ to $4 million range. Jay McClement will also be a UFA and would like to return but added “it’s out of my hands.”
- Kirk Penton of the Winnipeg Sun: Despite not being close to 100%, Jets defenseman Dustin Byfuglien will play out the season. Ondrej Pavelec and Evander Kane are both RFAs at the end of the year. “Not really. I’m just focusing on finishing the season strong,” the goaltender said. “There’s going to be a lot of time to think about it.”
- Mark Everson of the NY Post: Devils forward Jacob Josefson broke his wrist last night and will be out 4 to 6 weeks.
- Arthur Staple via twitter: The Islanders have signed 2010 1st round pick Brock Nelson to an entry level deal.
- Shawn Mitchell via twitter: Blue Jackets winger Rick Nash doesn’t know if he’ll play for Team Canada at the World Championships due to his “bumps and bruises.”
- Eric Stephens via twitter: There is nothing new on Ducks Justin Schultz’s situation, and sources are saying there won’t be any decision for awhile. Schultz plans to remain in school to finish the year.
- Jeff Miller of the OC Register: The Ducks competitiveness for next season will play a part in whether Teemu Selanne will return for another season.
“The good thing is the Ducks don’t have to do much (in the offseason),” Selanne insisted despite the team missing the playoffs. “That’s always very important to me. I’m going to see (general manager) Bob (Murray) after the season to get his view about this team and the future.”
If Selanne is going to retire, he said he will let the team know by July 1st.
- Derek Van Diest of the Edmonton Sun: The Oilers have 10 pending free agents, 7 are restricted. It’s unlikely that Linus Omark will be back next year. Since he’s a RFA, they will likely have to qualify him before trying to trade him. If the Oilers draft Mikahil Grigorenko and bring in Anton Lander, they may look to trade Eric Belanger and his $2 million salary. The Oils will have to make a decision on Darcy Hordichuk. Ryan Smyth situation remain in question. Goalie Devan Dubnyk is one of their RFAs.
- Pierre LeBrun of ESPN (mailbag): The Wild need to find some offense going forward. The Wild will go after Zach Parise if he hits the open market, but will be joined by the Red Wings, Rangers and others. The Flames aren’t interested in a “Edmonton-style rebuild,” but there will be changes. LeBrun thinks the Flames need to sit down with Jarome Iginla and Miikka Kiprusoff and have “The Chat.” LeBrun doesn’t think Dion Phaneuf is not captain material and their top 6 forwards are too small. They need a #1 goalie, #1 center and some spare parts. Ducks GM Bob Murray has some big offseason decisions to make regarding his core group. LeBrun doesn’t think they should trade Ryan Getzlaf as they’d spend the next decade trying to replace him.
- Pierre LeBrun of ESPN: Mike Milbury’s comments about Sidney Crosby:”Little goody two-shoes [Crosby] goes into the corner and gives a shot to [Brayden] Schenn,” Milbury said. “Schenn was late to the party, he should have turned around and drilled him right away, but I guess better late than never. So you know, Crosby gets cross-checked, big whoop. He said after he came back from his 35th concussion, ‘I’m not going to do this anymore, I’m not going to get into these scrums, I’m going to stay away from that stuff.’ He couldn’t help himself because there’s a little punk in Crosby. He’s not the perfect gentleman. He’s not the sweet kid you see in interviews with his hat pulled down over his eyes. I’d say screw him, hit him.”
Weber fined … Sens could move Alfie … RNH could sit … “Nothing new” on Staal .. Josefson breaks clavicle … Koivu, Ladd questionable tonight
- Josh Cooper of the Tennessean: Predators Shea Weber was fined $2500 by the NHL for his boarding hit on the Canucks Jannik Hansen.
- Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun: Garrioch wonders if the Senators will trade Daniel Alfredsson before the trade deadline. Alfie has a $1 million salary but a $4.875 million cap hit. He signed a 35+ deal, so if he decides to retire, his cap hit would stay on the books. Alfredsson has a no-movement clause.
- Dan Tencer via twitter: Oilers coach Tom Renny hints that Ryan Nugent-Hopkins could sit tonight for Sam Gagner. He added that team may need to see what it’s like without RNH. Jim Matheson via twitter: Matheson is baffled by the suggestion of sitting RNH. The Oilers didn’t sit Taylor Hall when he didn’t score for the first 8 games. RNH has 4 goals so far.
- Larry Brooks of the NY Post: There is “nothing new” when it comes Mark Staal and his concussion. Ryan McDonagh, Michael Del Zotto and Tim Erixon have stepped up there minutes, but are still learning the game. The Rangers may seriously look at adding a top 4 defenseman. The obvious place to look is Nashville with soon-to-be UFA Ryan Suter and RFA Shea Weber. The Preds would obviously ask about Del Zotto, Artem Anisimov, Brandon Dubinsky, Chris Kreider and Dylan McIlrath. Assuming that Erixon and Ryan Callahan are off limits.
- Craig Custance of ESPN: (Mailbag) The easiest way for the Devils to keep Zach Parise for the season is to be in the playoff race all season. If they were to consider moving him, it may take 2 NHL caliber players, a prospect and 1st round pick, same as what the Thrashers got for Kovalchuk. If the Flames don’t improve soon, Custance thinks they should make some moves to re-stock their system.
- Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger: Devils center Jacob Josefson suffered a broken right clavicle last night after crashing into the boads. The Devils are already without Travis Zajac until Christmas. Adam Henrique could be recalled, or Lou Lamoriello could make a trade for a center.
- Michael Russo of the Star Tribune: Wild center Mikko Koivu was cut on the chin by a skate on Thursday, is questionable for tonight’s game against the Canucks.
- Tim Campbell of the Winnipeg Free Press: Jets forward Andrew Ladd took a puck in the face that required 3 stitches above his nose, and 3 in it. It’s not known if he’ll be in the lineup tonight. Defenseman Ron Hainsey is likely out a week with a upper-body injury.
- The Fourth Period: Scott Hartnell is disappointed that his ice time has reduced. He’s aware of the trade rumors involving him. He has a no-trade clause.
- Darren Dreger via twitter: JP Dumont has a deal with Bern of the Swiss League. NHL teams have until Tuesday to sign him.
- Rich Chere via twitter: Johan Hedberg likely to start in net for the Devils against the Penguins.
- Jason Botchford of the Vancouver Province: Cory Schneider will get his 3rd start of the season tonight.
Devils prospects to miss camp … Blackhawks notes … Holland wants to talked to Osgood … Stars sale process ongoing … Bruins blueline
- Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger: Mattias Tedenby will miss the NJ Devils prospect camp due to visa problems. Fellow prospect Jacob Josefson said that Tedenby was at the airport on the weekend to head to New Jersey when it was discovered his visa had the wrong birth date. Jon Merrill will also not be prospect camp as he’s taking summer classes.
- Adam Jahns of the Chicago Sun-Times: Blackhawks GM Stan Bowman remains hopeful that he can re-sign Chris Campoli and Michael Frolik.
“We’re not there yet, but we’re still talking, which is a good sign,” Bowman said. “We’re trying to look at different options in terms of term and dollar amounts. . . . We’re hopeful it’ll get done.”
Down the middle the Blackhawks are a little thin, but they plan of giving rookie Marcus Kruger more time and also using Patrick Sharp and Frolik at center. Rostislav Olesz, acquired for Brian Campell, will be given every opportunity to prove himself at training camp.
- Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press: The Red Wings signed Joey MacDonald to a 2 year deal with the 1st year being 2-way. “I want to talk to Chris,” general manager Ken Holland said. “I want to hear what he has to say.” Osgood is returning from Scotland, so they won’t be able to speak until Wednesday at the earliest. Holland wants to know if Osgood can still play and that he’s recovered from his sports hernia and groin area issues.
“We explored the market on July 1,” Holland said. “We talked to a couple of guys that we thought would be good additions. They went elsewhere. As the market thinned out, we always knew we had Chris Osgood out there.
“We’ve protected ourselves with the signing of Joey MacDonald. Now I want to talk to Chris and make a decision within the next week.”
Ty Conklin still could be an option.
- Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette: The Canadiens shouldn’t rush Josh Gorges back from his major reconstructive surgery if he’s not a 100% when the season starts. Andrei Markov came back a little early last year, but got hurt again and only played 7 games all year. Tom Gagliardi’s exclusive negotiating window to buy the Dallas Stars has expired. 4 or 5 groups have shown interest in buying the team. The Stars lost $15 million last year. The NHL and Tom’s Hick’s creditors are looking for max return while purchasers are looking for a deal.
- Matt Kalman of the Boston Herald: The Bruins have continued adding some organizational depth along their blueline this offseason. Tommy Cross and Dougie Hamilton were paired together at prospect camp, and could be envisioned as their 2nd or 3rd pairing in 2013-14. Joe Haggerty via twitter: Hamilton isn’t expected to make a roster push during training camp this fall.
- Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News: Mike Modano,
“Not really in a rush to make a decision one way or another about what’s going to happen,” he said, “but I’ll probably make an announcement in two or three weeks if I want to play or if that’s it.”
Ribeiro staying in Dallas … Neal-Stars continue to talk … Bergfors-Thrashers close … Spot on Kings D open for Hickey? Keeping Parise happy
- Mark Stepneski of the ESPN Dallas: Dallas Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk has put center Mike Ribeiro’s mind at ease, telling him that the plan is for him to be in Dallas this season. “I reassured him that I have no intentions of moving him. I think he was worried about it. There was speculation out there that he was going to be moved any day,” Nieuwendyk said. Ribeiro’s name has been mentioned all summer as a player they may give up to acquire a puck moving defenseman.
- Craig Custance of the Sporting News: James Neal and the Dallas Stars continue to talk, but nothing is imminent. Nieuwendyk wants to get a deal done before the start of training camp, but realizes it may not happen.
- Pierre LeBrun via twitter: LeBrun is hearing the Atlanta Thrashers are close to re-signing RFA Niclas Bergfors. Update 11:05 am: LeBrun via twitter: Confirms that Bergfors signs for 1 year, $900,000.
- Helene Elliott of the the LA Times: With the departures of Sean O’Donnell and Randy Jones, and the injury to Matt Greene, 2007 4th overall pick Tomas Hickey might be ready to make the jump to the big club. Last season Hickey was limited to 23 regular season and playoff games due to shoulder and ankle injuries. “Going forward I want to make this team and that’s the only thing on my mind,” he said Sunday. His hockey IQ makes up for his lack of size. 2008 13th overall pick, Colten Teubert is still recovering from wrist surgery and won’t visit the doctors until early October.
- Tom Gulitti of the Bergon Record: Zach Parise will be an RFA after this season, and an UFA the year after. Parise wants to win, and if Kovalchuk’s re-signing helps that, it will help in his re-signing. “But if any of the repercussions of re-signing Kovalchuk – delaying starting negotiations, cap trouble, the impact on the roster, etc. – leads directly or indirectly to Parise leaving in two years, it will be it difficult to say this Summer of Kovy was worth it.”
- Mark Everson of the NY Post: The New Jersey Devils have until October 6th to shed at least $3-3.5 million to get under the cap, and will be looking at their prospects closely to fill the roster spot(s), paying close attention to the likes of Jacob Josefson, Mattias Tedenby, Alexander Urbom, Tyler Eckford, Matt Corrente, Adam Henrique, Nick Palmeri and Vladimir Zharkov.
