Lundqvist is in need of a new contract soon.

Hitting the free-agent market is the furthest thing from Henrik Lundqvist’s mind.

While signing a contract extension with the New York Rangers is one of the 31-year-old veteran netminder’s goals, he is focused on the upcoming season.

“If we can find a solution, it’s no secret that this is where I want to be; I’m not thinking about free agency at all,” Lundqvist told the New York Post. “The way the organization has treated me, the way that our team has played over the last few years, the way I feel about New York City, this is definitely the place I want to be.

“But we do have a few things we have to talk about.”

The Monsters will be playing in an outdoor game.

The Rochester Americans announced on Tuesday that they will host an outdoor game against the Monsters on Friday, December 13th at 7:05 PM. The game will be played at Frontier Field in Rochester, the home of Triple-A baseball’s Red Wings of the International League.

Lappy is an Ironman!

Philadelphia Flyers development coach Ian Laperriere wasn't sure what would happen Sunday, but it ended up being one of the most fulfilling days of his life.

The 39-year-old recovered from a fall two weeks ago during training that left him with what felt like a recurrence of the same concussion symptoms that had ended his 16-season NHL playing career to finish his first Ironman, completing the Ironman North American Championship at Mont-Tremblant (Quebec) in 12 hours, 11 minutes, 55 seconds.

He finished 124th of the 258 finishers in the men's 35-39 division.
