The New York Islanders agreed to a one-year contract with veteran center Derick Brassard on Wednesday, the team announced.
Terms were not disclosed.
Brassard was traded twice last season, going from the Pittsburgh Penguins to the Florida Panthers early in February and then to the Colorado Avalanche at the trade deadline.
Brassard has been traded four times since July 2016 and three times in a little over a year. He is coming off a five-year, $25 million contract that he signed with the Rangers.
He had 14 goals and nine assists last season, his worst output in a decade.
The 31-year-old’s best season came in 2014-15 with the New York Rangers, when he had 60 points.
Brassard has scored 451 points (176 goals, 275 assists) in 786 games in 12 seasons.
Senators sign C White to 6-year, $28.5M deal
22 Aug, 2019
The Ottawa Senators have signed center Colin White to a six-year, $28.5 million contract, the team announced.
On the rebuilding Senators, the 22-year-old White stepped into the top center position and had a solid season with 14 goals and 27 assists. He also quarterbacked the team’s second power-play unit.
White will be counted on to play a significant role next season as the team continues its rebuild.
“We’ve identified Colin as one of our core young players who will help drive our team’s success in both the short and long term,” Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said in a statement. “Colin plays the 200-foot game that is so coveted in today’s NHL. He can skate, play on both special teams, and is a character player and leader who loves hockey and this city. While he is coming off a season where he finished among rookie leaders in many categories, we also know he is just scratching the surface of his potential in this league. We’re very happy that Colin will be a Senator for the next six years.”
White signed a three-year, entry-level contract in April 2017 with a cap hit of $925,000 to forgo his final two years at Boston College. He was a restricted free agent this offseason.
He was one of seven Senators players to issue an apology in November after they were recorded criticizing the team’s poor play and an assistant coach while riding in an Uber. The conversation was then published online.
Wild pluck Guerin from Penguins to be new GM
22 Aug, 2019
The Minnesota Wild passed on Pittsburgh Penguins assistant GM Bill Guerin to hire Paul Fenton as their general manager last year. Fenton lasted one season. On Wednesday, the team hired Guerin to succeed him.
“Bill has been a winner throughout his hockey career and I am extremely pleased to be able to add his experience to our organization and The State of Hockey,” Wild owner Craig Leipold said in a statement.
Guerin, 48, becomes the fourth general manager in Wild franchise history and the second plucked from the Penguins organization after Chuck Fletcher.
Fletcher, who like Guerin worked under Ray Shero, is now the general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers.
Hired in 2011 as a developmental coach with the Penguins, Guerin was promoted to assistant general manager in 2014 by Jim Rutherford, and served in that role for five years. He added the role of general manager of their AHL franchise to his plate in 2017.
That was enough experience for Leipold and the Wild, despite speculation that they might opt for a candidate with previous NHL general managing experience. Fenton was a career assistant with the Nashville Predators when the Wild hired him, and his inexperience was called out by the owner when his firing was announced.
“I knew him in a different way. He was assistant general manager. He was scouting. That was his role. He was tremendous at that,” Leipold said of Fenton. “But it was the other portion of being a general manager: the organizational, the strategic, the management of people, the hiring and motivating of the departments. When I’m talking about not being a fit, that’s what I’m talking about.”
Guerin would seem like a better fit. He’s a former player who appeared in 1,263 games over 18 seasons and won the Stanley Cup with the New Jersey Devils and the Penguins. He’s known for an outward personality and natural charisma that appeared to be lacking in the previous general manager. Guerin also earned the reputation for recognizing and developing young talents.
He interviewed multiple times for the opening, vying for the job with other candidates like Carolina Hurricanes GM Don Waddell, former Flyers GM Ron Hextall and former Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli.
The Wild went 37-36-9 last season, missing the playoffs for the first time in seven years. This will be the third general manager in Minnesota for coach Bruce Boudreau, who is under contract through the 2019-20 season.
