Panthers' Huberdeau leads all-rookie team

  • Print

NEW YORK -- Calder Trophy winner Jonathan Huberdeau of the Florida Panthers and fellow finalists Brendan Gallagher of the Montreal Canadiens and Brandon Saad of the Chicago Blackhawks are among those chosen for the NHL's all-rookie team Saturday.

Joining the three forwards were St. Louis Blues goalie Jake Allen, and defencemen Jonas Brodin of the Minnesota Wild and Justin Schultz of the Edmonton Oilers.

Voting was conducted by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association.

Huberdeau took top rookie honours by posting 14 goals and 17 assists while playing in Florida's 48 games this season. Gallagher had 15 goals and 13 assists in 44 games, and Saad had 10 goals and 17 assists in 46 games for the Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks.

Schultz posted eight goals and 19 assists in 48 games, logging an average of nearly 21 1-2 minutes of ice time. Brodin averaged over 23 minutes in 45 games and had 11 points.

Allen went 9-4 in 15 games with a 2.46 goals-against average and .905 save percentage.

Schneider on the block?

NEW YORK -- The Vancouver Canucks are plenty busy in the trade market as the NHL draft approaches, and both of their goaltenders are in play.

General manager Mike Gillis said other teams have called about Cory Schneider. It's been well-known that the Canucks are trying to trade Roberto Luongo.

As the younger goalie with the more affordable contract, Schneider did not figure to be on the block. But Gillis said he has to listen to offers when they're made.

Gillis was not forthcoming about how much interest there was in Schneider or how likely it was that he would trade one of his goalies this weekend.

Habs mum on Lecavalier

SHORT HILLS, N.J. -- Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin isn't giving any hints about his plans when it comes to pursuing hometown star Vincent Lecavalier.

Lecavalier quickly became one of the league's more coveted free agents after the Tampa Bay Lightning bought out his contract on Thursday.

Bergevin says the possibility of signing Lecavalier depends on a variety of factors and it's too soon to say what he'll do.

"It will depend on many different things," Bergevin told reporters Saturday.

"Contracts have been bought out and there will be others. Many things can happen before the opening of the free agent market on July 5."

Bergevin also wouldn't say whether he's working to sign Norris winner P.K. Subban to an extension before heading into the final season of a two-year contract. He said any negotiations would be confidential.

For the moment, the GM says his focus is on the draft.
