Some quick notes that broke over the weekend:

  • Marc Staal had surgery to remove a bone chip in his ankle last week, he is expected back for opening night.
  • Dan Girardi also had surgery for a bursa excision. He is also expected back for opening night.
  • The Arizona Coyotes had their sights set on goalie coach Benoit Allaire, but Allaire turned them down, preferring to stay with New York as part of a long-term approach. Allaire has worked with Henrik Lundqvist and Cam Talbot to great success, and will be working with Mackenzie Skapski as well.
  • Jeff Gorton appears to be the heir apparent to Glen Sather, if he steps down. The Rangers denied the Maple Leafs and Bruins interviews with the Assistant GM.
