Today marks the official start for the month of September. The Traverse City Prospect Tournament begins the 5th, and Rangers camp is scheduled to start on the 11th. Their first preseason game will be against the New Jersey Devils in Newark on September 16th. The fans are overwhelmed with anticipation, as the NHL is finally back for yet another 82 game season.
- Ottawa Senators head coach Paul MacLean stated Friday that he and the organization are in no rush to name a new captain. Forward Daniel Alfredsson WAS their captain for a whopping 13 seasons, but he departed Ottawa to sign with the Detroit Red Wings, who are poised to make another run at the Cup. “We’ve done a lot of preliminary talk about it, but we’re going to let the process — it’s going to be a process, but I don’t think it’s going to be a difficult one — and we just have to take the time and get through it. … I’m not going to put a timeline on it. When we make the decision that’s the day it’s going to be,” MacLean said.
- The Minnesota Wild have unveiled their new road uniform for the upcoming 2013-14 campaign. At first glance, it doesn’t look much different than their old one, but if you look closer you will see that they changed the design of the logo just a tad, and the material has changed.
