Colin Greening singed a three year extension with the Senators.

The Ottawa Senators signed left-winger Colin Greening to a three-year contract extension on Monday.

The 27-year-old was set to become an unrestricted free agent following the 2013-’14 season.

Greening will make $2 million in 2014-15, $2.75 million in 2015-16 and $3.2 million in 2016-17.

Kiprusoff has announced his retirement.

One of the seminal players in Calgary Flames history, Miikka Kiprusoff, made it official Monday: He is done with the NHL, after nine seasons with the Flames that put him alongside Mike Vernon as one of the franchise’s greatest goaltenders.

Kiprusoff, 36, had one year remaining on a front-loaded six-year, $35-million (U.S.) contract he signed before the start of the 2008-09 season. It initially paid him $8.5-million, but would have dropped to $1.5-million for the final campaign.

The Islanders have named a new team captain.

Dynamic centre John Tavares is the New York Islanders’ new captain.

Tavares, who turns 23 this month, is the 14th captain in the team’s 42-year history.

The Islanders made the playoffs last season, for the first time since 2007.

"There’s a misperception about the Islanders," Tavares said at a Monday press conference. "I think a lot of that is changing."

Our very own Angelique breaks down the first two days of rookie camp.

Day 1:

For MacKinnon, his first camp session was a mixed bag, as the former Halifax Moosehead suffered from bouts of nervousness early on. Yet, his tenacity was in effect and eventually he relaxed and let his skills speak for themselves as the morning drills came to an end.

Day 2:

One of the more engaging match ups during drills was Duncan Siemens  and Paul Carey. Carey was always one of the best forwards around the net during his Boston College days and he had his hands full with Siemens. Siemens was more physical and active on day two than Sunday.

Finally, coming from Ottawa (thanks, Sean) an awesome video of Bobby Ryan interviewing people about Bobby Ryan. Love that the only people who knew it was him were the chicks.
