It is always nice to see local talent hit the Bruins roster.


  • Jimmy Hayes and Brett Connolly have been signed, as has Brandon DeFazio , a former Utica Comet (remember them in the Calder Cup finals?) [TheBostonGlobe]

  • And one more take on this news- the Bruins are saving money, although they are still missing the final piece in their roster. [HockeyBuzz]

  • Remember having arguably had the best fourth line in the NHL? The Bruins now appear poised to field an expensive, older, slower, grinder-style line than the rest of the league. [CausewayCrowd]

  • Development camp is coming, and local boy Mike Vecchione may be attending the Bruins' camp after attending camp with the Wild. [DailyGazette]

Elsewhere around the rink:


  • Team Jamaica U18  participated in a hockey tournament in Ontario, with their eyes on the Olympics... and oh, those uniforms! [TheColorOfHockey]

  • Here are your NHL Narratives for the upcoming season. Stay tuned to see how they all resolve. [ESPN]

  • Show Me The Money: NHL expansion talk has two cities ponying up the hefty fee for consideration, and four others still in the mix.  [TSN]

  • Got Mascots? The new EA NHL 16 does. [BarDown]

  • Happy 25th anniversary to the Ottawa Senators ! Check out their new logo, featuring Roman numerals, of course. [TheScore]

  • The Columbus Blue Jackets waste no time in pursuing young talent... [TheScore]

  • Good news for Rich Clune , who recently wrote about his history with substance abuse. He has signed with the Marlies and will attend Maple Leafs camp. [ProHockeyTalk]

  • Is it time to off the dreaded offer sheet? [HockeyBuzz]

  • Or is the offer sheet a useful tool, making skilled RFAs fair game? [TheGlobeAndMail]
