Pittsburgh Penguins GM Jim Rutherford says he would love to keep Marc-Andre Fleury and Matt Murray together next season, but factors like expansion, the salary cap and Fleury’s willingness to share the crease could impact Rutherford’s off-season plans.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have a major off-season decision to make in goal, and it might be the best problem a team could have. Instead of the Penguins seeking a starting netminder or a goaltender to solidify their crease, Pittsburgh GM Jim Rutherford needs to figure out how his team is going to ...

Nick Bonino was an integral part of the Penguins’ most effective unit, the ‘HBK’ Line, but he was almost held out of the Stanley Cup final due to a bad fever. Bonino said his temperature was nearly 101 and he took IV fluids to battle the fever, as well as antibiotics for an elbow infection.
The post-season injury lists for the Pittsburgh Penguins and San Jose Sharks will begin filtering out over the next few weeks, but the strangest tale of all may have already been revealed. During his end of season meeting with media, Penguins center Nick Bonino said that he had to battle through ...

The NHL will honor Gordie Howe with “something that will be special and enduring and permanent,” commissioner Gary Bettman said. Some have suggested retiring Howe’s No. 9 league-wide, while others have mentioned naming Detroit’s arena or an award after Howe.
Wayne Gretzky said the NHL should honor Gordie Howe by forever enshrining his No. 9, retiring the number league-wide like has been done with Gretzky's own No. 99. There has been calls to name an arena, specifically the new building in Detroit, to be named after Howe. Others have suggested an ...

As of Thursday, R.J. Umberger and Jared Cowen are set to become free agents. Both have been bought out of their contracts. Umberger’s buyout saves the Flyers $3 million this season, while the Maple Leafs get a $650,000 credit for buying out Cowen.
The NHL's buyout window officially opened Wednesday, and Thursday afternoon saw the Toronto Maple Leafs and Philadelphia Flyers become the first teams to take advantage of the opportunity to get rid of a contract. Jared Cowen's contract was the first to fall, as the Maple Leafs placed the ...

The WHL is going to let players deflect, direct and knock pucks in with their skates beginning next season. The rule alteration will remove some the gray area around the “distinct kicking motion,” but players can’t use their skates to score from inside the crease.
The WHL doesn't necessarily have a need to increase scoring, but the junior league will be experimenting with a rule change in 2016-17 that could see more pucks hitting the back of the net. As part of the league's Annual General Meeting, the WHL announced a few rule changes, including the ...

Cam Ward is coming back for a 12th season as a Carolina Hurricane. The veteran netminder took a $3 million-per-season pay cut to ink a two-year, $6.6 million deal. Ward, 32, posted a 23-17-10 record, 2.41 goals-against average and .909 save percentage in 2015-16.
Cam Ward was set to become a free agent come July 1, and the veteran netminder was going to have to take a pay cut no matter where he went. So, instead of uprooting and looking for work elsewhere, Ward, 32, has decided to remain a Carolina Hurricane on a two-year, $6.6 million deal.

The Detroit Red Wings have several restricted free agents to lock up this summer and got one out of the way Wednesday, reportedly signing 24-year-old center Riley Sheahan to a two-year deal.
Riley Sheahan's offense took a step back in 2015-16, as was the case for many Red Wings, but it doesn't appear as though it hurt the 24-year-old's negotiating power. MLive.com's Ansar Khan reported Wednesday that Sheahan, who was set to become a restricted free agent, has signed a two-year deal ...

Sven Baertschi was a promising prospect for the Flames when drafted 13th overall in 2011, but he failed to catch in Calgary. But a trade to Vancouver rejuvenated the 23-year-old’s career, and now he’s signed a two-year, $3.7 million deal.
Sven Baertschi could never find his fit with the Flames, and after three trying campaigns, the 2011 13th-overall selection was shipped out of Calgary to the division-rival Canucks. The move didn't look like much at the time, but the 23-year-old winger made his mark in Vancouver this past season.

The NHLPA will reportedly vote to increase the salary cap, which will keep it from falling below 2015-16’s upper limit of $71.4 million. That’s great news for some teams up against the cap, but don’t expect the upper limit to rise by much.
Nothing's official, but it appears the NHLPA is prepared to use the five-percent escalator clause to give the salary cap a bump. TVA's Renaud Lavoie reported Thursday evening that the Players' Association is expected to once again elect to exercise their right to increase the salary cap by five ...

Ilya Bryzgalov wants to return to the NHL next season after spending the 2015-16 season away from the game. The 35-year-old netminder said he has “a hunger to play,” and would be willing to take his compensation in bonuses, according to his agent.
Ilya Bryzgalov has played 40 NHL games in the past three seasons — and didn't play professionally at all in 2015-16 — but that isn't about to stop the quirky, veteran netminder from setting his sights on an NHL return. In an interview with NHLPA.com's Chris Lomon, Bryzgalov, 35, said a season ...

The AHL’s newest team has a name. The Springfield Thunderbirds unveiled their moniker and logo Wednesday, and will take the ice this coming season. The Portland Pirates relocated to Springfield after the Springfield Falcons were moved to Tucson.
The off-season AHL shuffle began in April when the Springfield Falcons were purchased by the Arizona Coyotes, their parent club, and relocated to Tucson. One month later, Springfield once again had AHL hockey when the Portland Pirates were sold and subsequent moved to Massachusetts.

The Blackhawks’ trade of Bryan Bickell freed up $4 million in cap space and could be just what Chicago needed to bring back Andrew Shaw. But GM Stan Bowman should be cautious before handing Shaw a big raise if he wants to keep the Blackhawks from losing another young, talented player.
The Blackhawks' salary dump and roster clearing has become an annual tradition in the six off-seasons since Chicago hoisted the Stanley Cup in 2010, their first of the post-expansion era. On Wednesday, the tradition continued for a seventh consecutive off-season. This time it came in the form of ...
