Blue Jackets re-sign Mike Blunden

The Columbus Blue Jackets have re-signed one of their promising young forwards in Mike Blunden to a one-year contract on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old Blunden scored two goals and had two assists with 59 penalty minutes in 40 games with the Blue Jackets in 2009-2010. He scored the first goal of his career against the Chicago Blackhawks back in March.

Blunden also scored seven goals with nine assists in 25 games for the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League. The Crunch were Columbus’ top minor league affiliate but Springfield, Massachusetts will be the affiliate in 2010-2011.

Blunden, a Toronto native, was Chicago’s second pick, 43rd overall in the 2005 draft. The Blue Jackets acquired him from the Blackhawks in exchange for Adam Pineault (pih-nyoh’) on January 10, 2009.

Blackhawks show Niemi the door; usher in Turco as number one goalie

Marty Turco now a Blackhawk (nhl)

Marty Turco was not offered a new contract by the cost-cutting Dallas Stars a few weeks ago.

But now, that’s all a memory as he will now be playing for the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.

Turco replaces Stanley Cup hero Antii Niemi as the Blackhawks’ top goaltender. He could’ve got a longer contract with more money with another team, but he wants a championship ring. Turco’s deal is one-year for $1.3 million.

The Blackhawks have high expectations from the 34-year-old Turco, a Michigan product, who has played all nine of his NHL seasons with Dallas. The three-time All-Star has never advanced past the conference finals in six playoff appearances with the Stars.

Niemi, 26, helped Chicago win the Stanley Cup this past season after earning $826,875 as a rookie. He was awarded a $2.75 million salary for next season by an arbitrator last week, which would’ve put the team in a tight spot. The NHL’s salary cap is $59.4 million next season and some hockey experts said that with Niemi’s new salary, it would’ve put the Blackhawks over the limit.

Niemi becomes an unrestricted free agent. The Finn played all but one period of Chicago’s postseason run to the NHL title, going 16-6 with a 2.63 goals-against average, .910 save percentage and two shutouts.

Niemi will make the eighth player to leave the Blackhawks since the winning the Stanley Cup. The others include Andrew Ladd, Ben Eager, Dustin Byfuglien, Brent Sopel, Adam Burish, Colin Fraser and Kris Versteeg. 37-year-old John Madden, another unrestricted free agent, has yet to sign with a team.

One of NHL’S all-time enforcers, Bob Probert dead at 45

compiled from staff, wire and NHL news

Retired NHL enforcer Bob Probert, who was as adept with his fists as well as with his stick and the puck, in a 16-year career with the Detroit Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks, died after suffering severe chest pains while boating with his family. He was only 45.

Probert played for the Red Wings from 1985 to 1994, and for the Blackhawks from 1995 to 2002.

The Windsor, Ontario native had 384 points in 935 career regular season games. His 3,300 career penalty minutes rank sixth in NHL history.

Lord Stanley revisits Chicago after 49-year hiatus

compiled from staff and wire reports

Patrick Kane saw the puck get past the goalie for the winning score, but his teammates and coaches didn’t realize it for a few seconds.

Kane’s magical moment ended 49 years of frustration for the Chicago Blackhawks without a title.

Kane will forever be a Chicago hero, although he probably already was before. He sneaked the puck past Michael Leighton 4:06 into overtime and stunned Philadelphia to lift Chicago to a 4-3 overtime win in Game 6 on Wednesday night for their first championship since 1961.

Chicago had won its first Stanley Cup since Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita led the way 49 years ago.

Jonathan Toews was first to touch the Stanley Cup, accepting it from commissioner Gary Bettman and hoisting it above his head in victory. Marian Hossa, whose last two attempts at a title were denied the last two years with Detroit and Pittsburgh, was next to hold the coveted trophy.

The Philadelphia Flyers have lost their last six Stanley Cup appearances who are still looking for their first Stanley Cup since winning consecutive championships in 1974 and 1975 during the “Broad Street Bullies” period and Bobby Clarke’s era.

Blackhawks on the brink of a Stanley Cup; defeat Flyers 7-4

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Chicago Blackhawks had everything going their way on Sunday night,  balance scoring, home ice advantage and mixing up the scoring lines which put them one win away from a Stanley Cup.

Dustin Byfuglien and Patrick Kane both were moved out of the number 1 scoring line, but they had two goals and two assists to lead Chicago to a 7-4 win over Philadelphia, allowing them to take a 3-2 series lead.

Dustin Byfuglien (nhl)

Byfuglien, who at 257-pounds looks like a defenseman intead of a winger, had eight goals in the first three rounds of the plyoffs but none in the first four games against the  tough Flyers defense, scored a power-play goal in the second period and added an empty net goal in the closing seconds of the third period.

The scoring line of Jonathan Toews, Byfuglien and Kane that was effective earlier in the playoffs, was split up, and the strategy worked to perfection. They had a combined 1 goal and four assists in the first four games against the Flyers.

Brent Seabrook added a power-play goal, Dave Bolland, Kris Versteeg and Patrick Sharp also scored for the Blackhawks.

Chicago can capture their first Stanley Cup since 1961 with a win in Philadelphia on Wednesday.
