Melanson reunited with Schneider as New Jersey Devils goalie coach

Rollie Melanson has left the Vancouver Canucks organization to re-unite with Cory Schneider as the new goaltending coach of the New Jersey Devils. Melanson spent the past season working part time as the Canucks development goaltending coach, working with the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League, after coaching full time in Vancouver the previous six seasons. That included working directly with Schneider for his first three full seasons in the NHL before he was traded to the Devils at the 2013 NHL Draft.

Anders Nilsson gives Canucks massive Swedish tandem

The Vancouver Canucks will have 13 feet of Swedish goaltending next season after signing 6-foot-6 free agent Anders Nilsson to a two-year, $5-million contract on Saturday. While the $2.5 million salary cap hit probably represents an overpay in a market where Brian Elliott got $2.75 million a season from the Philadelphia Flyers, Nilsson was a popular target for other teams. In Vancouver, Nilsson will play with – and be counted on to push – fellow 6-foot-6 and 27-year-old Swede Jacob Markstrom, a teammate on the 2010 World Junior Championship team who is entering the first season of a three-year,...

Scott Darling’s remarkable, inspiring story will continue with the Carolina Hurricanes. Darling signed a four-year, $16.6-million contract on Friday with the Hurricanes, who acquired him from the Chicago Blackhawks for a third round pick in the 2017 NHL Draft on April 29. It’s the next step in a journey that for Darling, who played for 12 teams over four years, starting with a sting in the Southern Professional Hockey League, before getting his big break with the Blackhawks in 2014-15. The 6-foot-6 stopper turned that opportunity into a 39-17-9 record and .923 save percentage over three seasons with his...

Scary close call for



Scary close call for Winnipeg Jets Connor Hellebuyck as teammate’s stick blade got through his cage + cut him near eye; interestingly amid the debate about cat-eye cages, which are banned in Canada, the blade actually appears to go in under the lower bar of the cat-eye opening. Frankly it’s hard to see why that gap, which does nothing to help vision, needs to be big enough for a blade to get through, as unlikely as this incident might be.
