We did chest compressions on him and defibrillated him, provided some electricity to bring a rhythm back to his heart, and that was successful with one attempt, which is very reassuring.”

    “As soon as we treated him he regained consciousness. He was alert and talking to us after the event and quickly got transported to the hospital. I was actually able to talk to him in the back of the ambulance; he was able to tell me where he was and wanted to get back into the game.”

It’s to try and come and be a part of the team. “I’ve heard great things about the city, and hopefully things go really well, and we have a great year as a team, and I’d like to play there longer than one year.”

  • Detroit Red Wings: Joakim Andersson has re-signed with the Red Wings, a two-year deal. ($1.425 million)

Afternoon Hits: Clifford trade talk, Red Wings, Hurricanes and Rob Blake

  • Dennis Bernstain: League source saying the Kings are actively shopping Kyle Clifford. Contracts talks between the Kings and Clifford are far apart. Trade talk have started but nothing is imminent. They would likely only get a prospect/pick back for Clifford at most. The trade calls made by Kings could be in effort to bring down contract demands. League source saying that Clifford will be shipped out by the end of the month and the Canadiens are not in the mix, “No chance to MTL”
  • David Staple of the Edmonton Journal: Since the Oilers were interested in Cal Clutterbuck before he was dealt to the Islanders, it wouldn’t be surprising if they would have interest in Clifford.
  • Ansar Khan of MLive: The Red Wings would like to move out a couple players and may be sign a free agent, but it doesn’t look like that would happen any time soon.

    “We’re comfortable where we’re at right now,” Holland said Monday, after signing defenseman Brendan Smith to a two-year, $2.52 million contract. “Before we do anything we’d have to move somebody. It’s pretty quiet in the industry right now. Everybody probably is into a bit of a summer mode.”

    Once the Red Wings re-sign RFAs Gustav Nyquist and Joakim Andersson, they will have 25 roster players. They are over the salary cap limit, but part of Daniel Alfredsson’s bonuses could be applied to 2014-15 cap number if need be.

    “We’d like to do a move or two, but I’m not sure we can,” Holland said. “If we can’t make a move I’m OK with our team and we’ll go to camp. If we can make a move and free up some money then certainly re-signing Dan Cleary is a possibility. But, unless we move somebody, we aren’t signing anybody.”

  • Chip Alexander: Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said that Elias Lindholm could start the season with the team. Would be shocked if he doesn’t. Added Lindholm’s preference is to play center, but can play all forward positions. Could start on a line with Jeff Skinner.

Free Agent Hits: McDonagh, Rangers, Brunner, Zidlicky, Jagr, Red Wings, Hejduk and the Best of the Rest

  • Aaron Ward: Expect a Ryan McDonagh to sign a six year extension with the Rangers today.
  • Larry Brroks of the NY Post: The Rangers have about $12 million to sign Ryan McDonagh, Derek Stepan, Carl Hagelin and Justin Falk. There may not much for Mats Zuccarello. They could fit him with the 10 percent offseason overage, but he wouldn’t have a guaranteed NHL spot.
  • The Fourth Period: The Stars have shown interest in Damien Brunner. Brunner is thought to be looking for a multi-year deal worth between $3 and $3.5 million.
  • Tom Gulitti: The Devils trading Henrik Tallinder to the Sabres could have been a move to clear some cap space to re-sign Marek Zidlicky. He has been waiting for the Devils and he has received some other offers. Rich Chere: Lamoriello did say that the trade doesn’t impact Zidlicky “at this point” and added that he’d like to get Zidlicky signed.
  • Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun: Brennan thinks that the Senators should try to sign Jaromir Jagr. The Sens are well below the cap and it could take a $4.5 million on one year deal like he did last year. He may have his heart set on playing with the Canadiens though.
  • Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News: The Red Wings would like to re-sign Daniel Cleary, but at the moment they have too may forwards under contract and their salary cap situation needs to clear up. They have to sign RFAs Gustav Nyquist, Joakim Andersson and Brendan Smith. The Wings are already $700,000 over next seasons cap.
  • Adrian Dater via sulia: The Avalanche don’t really have room for him and have yet to make an offer to Milan Hejduk. Odds are that he’ll retire.
  • David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail: Best of the remaining free agents. Goaltenders: 1. Tim Thomas 2. Ilya Bryzgalov 3. Johan Hedberg. Defenseman: 1. Douglas Murray 2. Ron Hainsey 3. Ryan Whitney. Forwards: 1. Dan Cleary 2. Damien Brunner 3. Mikhail Grabovski.
