FULL NHL DRAFT
This year's crop of draft-eligible players is top-heavy and forward-laden. Who will be drafted by whom during one of the National Hockey League’s biggest events of the year? Round 1 was completed Friday night, while Rounds 2-7 take place on Saturday as of 10 a.m. ET.
Left wing Clarke MacArthur and the Senators have come to terms on a five-year extension.
MacArthur went on to tell the Ottawa Sun that he will not change the way he plays the game. "Just because I've got a five-year deal, that doesn't mean I need to change a whole lot. I kind of want to play the same game. I want to play good in both ends." MacArthur had 24 goals and 31 assists in his first season in Ottawa last year.
Hurricanes GM Ron Francis told CarolinaHurricanes.com that he expects forward Alexander Semin to be ready when training camp begins.
"He's training, according to his agent, a couple times a day and doing therapy on the wrist as well. There were no issues with the wrist, as far as I was told," Francis said. A report surfaced about a week-and-a-half ago that Semin hadn't fully recovered yet from off-season surgery to his wrist, which had been nagging him since the beginning of last year. Francis expects that to be a thing of the past.
Montreal goaltender Carey Price told the Montreal Gazette skating is "going pretty good so far."
Price stayed in Montreal until the end of June to rehabiliate his sprained knee. Rangers winger Chris Kreider crashed into Price's leg in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. The goaltender missed the rest of the series but should be ready for training camp.
