The New Jersey Devils have announced that left winger Mattias Tedenby has been assigned to the Devils AHL affiliate, the Albany Devils.
Devils President and General Manager Lou Lamoriello said that someone will be recalled from Albany before tomorrow's game against Boston. My guess is that someone is Bobby Butler.
Arguably the best forward to ever play for the New Jersey Devils, Patrik Elias, has hit the 900-point plateau in his career.
Elias entered tonight's game against Montreal three points shy of the mark, but scored the Devils 1st goal and picked up primary assists on two more to reach the mark.
Elias still plans on playing a few more seasons in the NHL so barring any major...
MONTREAL — Defenseman P.K. Subban will be rejoining the Montreal Canadiens after signing a two-year contract on Monday.
The club did not release terms of the deal.
Subban did not attend training camp and missed the first four games of the regular season while negotiating with the NHL club.
The 23-year-old led the team in average ice time per game last season at 24 minutes, 18 seconds...
Little or no progress made in PK Subban contract negotiations. Habs firm on 2 year deal, roughly $5 mil total. Offer sheet? Trade? Options.

Subban-Watch officially ended this evening, with the Canadiens' defensive hold-out agreeing to a new contract. After his three-year entry level deal, Subban obviously wanted to be paid what he felt he was worth, hence the several weeks of waiting for a contract to get done. The Canadiens wanted a shorter contract to make sure that Subban could live up to his "value,"...
Before we get started, we know what you're thinking: "How could I ever not hate P.K Subban? I couldn't stand him when he played against the Pens." Two words: Darius Kasparaitis.
This could be the biggest story in the NHL off the ice right now: P.K. Subban and his contract negotiation with the Habs.
Great read here from Adam Getz:
Defenseman P.K. Subban signed to a two-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens on Monday. The team did not disclose financial terms, but TVA Sports reported that the deal is worth $5.75 million, with Subban receiving $2 million this year and $3.75 million next season. Subban, 23, had seven goals (five on power plays), 29 assists and 119 penalty minutes last season. No Canadiens...
MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced Monday the signing of defenseman P.K. Subban to a two-year contract (2012-13 to 2013-14). As per club policy, financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
MONTREAL -- Andrei Markov scored 4:22 into overtime to give the Montreal Canadiens a 4-3 win over the New Jersey Devils on Sunday night. Markov got his fourth goal of the season with 37.8 seconds remaining after Devils defenseman Andy Greene was penalized for holding. Greene was sent off with 58.1 seconds left in the extra period when he hauled Erik Cole down as the Montreal...
Washington Capitals goalie Michal Neuvirth completely robbed New Jersey Devils defenseman Marek Zidlicky on this play. This has to be an early candidate for save of the year. Zidlicky had 2/3 of the net open and Neuvirth just snagged it. The Devils fans thought it was in and you can see almost an entire section behind the net start to celebrate and then become instantly disappointed...
Last week, before a game at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, I had a P.K. Subban related discussion with a longtime NHL executive who was at the game. I asked him if he thought the price tag on Subban was being set too high, either by the player himself in his contract demands and/or by the Canadiens in the rumored trade return they want if they deal his rights.
“He’s a heart-and-soul kid … he’ll do anything for the team. He puts the team ahead of anything. If the team needs a fight to lift the team he’ll do it … if it needs a big hit he’ll do it … block a shot … he does the intangibles that coaches love. He’s heart and soul … he’ll play with the young kids and he’ll help them." - Dale Hunter via Montreal Gazette...
