    Hall urges Hischier to ‘develop at his own pace’

    The New Jersey Devils won the lottery and selected Nico Hischier first overall. With that comes even greater expectations on the player heading into their first training camp. We’re less than two months away from the opening of training camps across the league. But on a team that has worked this summer to bolster its offense, the addition of the 18-year-old Hischier could have an immediate impact in that department in October. Certainly, fans in New Jersey will hope so. Taylor Hall knows all about the pressures of being taken first overall. The Oilers selected him at that spot in 2010, but dealt him to New Jersey last summer, removing a very talented forward from their roster in order to gain

    Habs may lean more on Montoya to keep Price refreshed

    The Montreal Canadiens committed money (a lot of money) and term to Carey Price with his contract extension at the beginning of this month. He is the backbone for this team, for its success. He’s also about to turn 30 years old next month, with 509 career games in the NHL, entering the league in 2007-08. For as great as he has been, the Habs may place added responsibilities on the shoulders of their back-up, a title currently held by Al Montoya. In an interview with the Habs’ website, the club’s goaltending coach Stephane Waite said that, in his mind, the days of starting goalies playing 65 to 70 games are done. It’s too tall an order in today’s NHL. Price has, on three occasions, breached the
