Chicago Blackhawks part ways with longtime goalie Corey Crawford

October 8, 2020

 

After 13 NHL seasons, the Corey Crawford era in Blackhawks history has officially ended.

Senior Vice President/General Manager Stan Bowman made it official by saying that the team will not renew the 35-year-old contract and the goalie will become a free agent.

“I had a conversation with Corey earlier today and it was a bit of an emotional talk. Corey and I go back a long time,” he told reporters. “He’s up there with the legends for the Blackhawks: Tony Esposito, Glenn Hall, Corey Crawford. Corey stands tall as a two-time Cup champion.”

A second-round pick of the Blackhawks in 2003 (52nd overall), Crawford stepped into the starting role for the 2010-11 season and has been the go-to backstop ever since. The key part of Corey’s career was when Bowman sent back to Rockford the year prior before the 2009-10 campaign, to work on his game. That move really helped Crawford become a dependable goaltender that is expected in the NHL.

Crawford is the franchise’s only goalie to win multiple Stanley Cups (2013, 2015) and multiple William M. Jennings Trophies (2012-13, 2014-15) as the netminder with the fewest goals against in the regular season. He owns franchise records for playoff wins (52) and regular-season save percentage (.918, min. 100 appearances). He is second in 30+ win seasons (6), third in regular-season wins (260) and sixth in regular-season shutouts (26).

He also appeared in two NHL All-Star Games (2015, 2017) and represented his country in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, helping Team Canada to the gold medal.

The Blackhawks will have a three player battle for the starting netminder assignment between veteran Malcolm Subban, Kevin Lankinen and Collin Delia.

Won three Stanley Cups during 19 season NHL career with Hurricanes, Flyers, Kings & Capitals

October 8, 2020

 

RALEIGH, NC – Carolina Hurricanes forward Justin Williams today announced his retirement from the National Hockey League.

“Since I first broke into the league a day after my 19th birthday back in 2000, this game has brought me so much that I will never be able to repay it” Williams said. “The countless experiences, relationships, lessons and hardships will remain with me forever as I move on to the next stage of my life. I’ve never once taken for granted the privilege it is to be able to play a game for a living, and that is probably why I was able to play it professionally for as long as I have.

“I want to thank every single one of my teammates for challenging me every day to be better. My friend and agent Thane Campbell for having my back all these years. Bobby Clarke and the Philadelphia Flyers organization for seeing the potential in a scrawny kid from Cobourg, Ont., and selecting me in the draft. My first coach Craig Ramsay for giving me an opportunity right away to realize my dream of playing in the NHL. Jim Rutherford and the Carolina Hurricanes for seeing that same potential and allowing me to grow as a player. Phil Anschutz, Dean Lombardi, Michael Futa and the Los Angeles Kings organization whom I will forever be grateful to for helping me resurrect a career that was sliding away, and giving me a renewed confidence in myself at a time when I needed it most. The Washington Capitals organization for the chance to keep playing for championships. Peter Karmanos and Ron Francis for agreeing to bring me back to the place I now call home and finish my career for the Hurricanes. Tom Dundon and Rod Brind’Amour for their leadership and trust in me as a player to bring me back this past year for one last run.

“My family has sacrificed a lot for me to be where I am, so I want to thank my mom and dad for being there for me every step of the way. My sister, Nikki, for being my biggest fan since day one. My wife, Kelly, and my kids Jaxon and Jade for embracing this journey with me. Life is so much better when you have people you love to share it with.

“Thank you everyone as I retire from pro hockey.”

Williams, 39, recorded 797 points (320g, 477a) in 1,264 career NHL games with the Hurricanes, Flyers, Kings and Capitals. He is a three-time Stanley Cup Champion, winning titles with Carolina in 2006 and Los Angeles in 2012 and 2014. Williams also won the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2014, awarded to the most valuable player during the playoffs. The 6’1″, 184-pound forward tallied 316 points (128g, 188a) in 449 career games with the Hurricanes, ranking sixth in team history (since relocation) in goals and assists and eighth in points. He is one of nine players in NHL history to score 100 goals and win the Stanley Cup with two different franchises.

Williams was named the 16th captain in franchise history on Sept. 13, 2018. He played in 162 career NHL playoff games, registering 102 points (41g, 61a). The Cobourg, Ont., native recorded 15 points (7g, 8a) in nine career Game 7s, which is the most career Game 7 points by any player in NHL history. Williams’ teams posted an 8-1 record in Game 7s.

Ottawa Senators announce new primary logo change

Full Uniform Changes to be Unveiled October 6

OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) today unveiled an updated primary logo that will see the organization return to its roots with the implementation of a modified original “2D” logo. The updated look is one that fans, partners and players have clamoured to see return. The new primary logo will also be part of an expanded new identity and overall uniform change, with those details set to be revealed prior to the NHL Draft on Tuesday, Oct. 6

“It is time for the Senators to return to our roots,” said Mr. Eugene Melnyk, owner of the Ottawa Senators. “The fans of this great franchise have high expectations. We have heard from our fans, our partners and our players, and we have listened. It is time to return to our heritage, but in a bold, new manner. The Senators have a rich history in our community, and we are ready for the next chapter to begin.”

The familiar two-dimensional profile of the Roman soldier makes its return, with gold trimming replacing the original logo’s red on the cape. The gold semicircle with laurel leaves, which anchors the logo, makes its return and increases its association with the letter “O”. The new logo replaces the modernized version of the logo that was first introduced prior to the 2007-08 season. A secondary logo will not be used for the 2020-21 season.

Ottawa Senators old primary logo from 2007–08 until 2019–20.

“A logo is an important part of any teams’ identity, but it isn’t the only part,” said Anthony LeBlanc, president of business operations of the Ottawa Senators. “The way this logo will be incorporated into our updated uniforms is the mark of a winner. It is time to start our new chapter of hockey excellence. A chapter that will make Sens fans in the Capital Region proud. We very much look forward to the unveiling of our new home and away uniforms on October 6.”

In a surprising move, Ottawa Senators buyout RW Bobby Ryan’s contract

OTTAWA – Ottawa Senators (@Senators) general manager Pierre Dorion announced today that the team has bought out the remaining two seasons of forward Bobby Ryan‘s contract.

“This was a decision that required a lot of consideration,” said Dorion. “Bobby’s long been a deserving fan favourite in Ottawa. While we’re appreciative of his efforts on the ice, it’s outweighed by how proud we are of him for the courage that he has demonstrated off of it. As we continue to take strides in our rebuild, this decision was one that we felt was best for the organization. We wish he and his family the best as he moves forward.”

A native of Cherry Hill, N.J., Ryan was selected in the first round (second overall) by Anaheim in the 2005 NHL Draft. Acquired from the Ducks on July 5, 2013, Ryan recorded 266 points (107 goals, 159 assists) over 455 games with Ottawa. A Senators’ All-Star representative in 2015, Ryan became the first player in franchise history to record multiple overtime winners in the same playoff year and ranked second in team scoring with 15 points (six goals, nine assists) while helping the team reach the 2017 Eastern Conference Final.
