Got an interesting text message today, saying that John Grahame was back in the NHL.

Wait, what?

Yes, this is true. The New York Islanders have agreed to terms with Grahame on a deal to run through end of this season. Grahame, 36, was a goalie coach with Sioux City of USHL. Pending a physical, he’ll likely join the Isles on Friday so Kevin Poulin can return to Bridgeport. He played most recently for the Lake Erie Monsters of the American Hockey League, and last played in the NHL with the Carolina Hurricanes in 2008 (He is pictured here with Colorado, where he never played).

In May 2008, after the conclusion of the Hurricanes’ season, as a free agent, Grahame signed with Avangard Omsk of the new Kontinental Hockey League.

On December 12, 2009, Grahame signed a professional tryout contract for the 2009–10 season with the Philadelphia Flyers AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms. After playing in 12 games with the Phantoms, Grahame signed a contract with the Colorado Avalanche and was assigned to the injury-hit Lake Erie Monsters on March 3, 2010. He played in 14 games, recording only 4 wins, with the Monsters to finish the season and was re-signed on a one-year contract by the Avalanche on July 2, 2010.

Ian Lindsay -The Province

The Boston Bruins announced today that they had signed 21-year-old Vancouver Giants goaltender Adam Morrison to an entry-level contract. He will remain with the Giants through end of their season.

Morrison was originally drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers in the 3rd round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft; however, was never signed. He officially became a free agent following last year’s NHL draft and with the season he has had thus far, proven he is worthy of a contract with the Bruins.

In 56 games this season, the 21-year-old Morrison has posted a 35-17-3 record, a 2.80 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage.

When asked about the signing, Adam had this to say: “I know I’ll get some grief from my Canuck fan friends.” (more…)

Boston Bruins Depth Chart

  1.  Tim Thomas

  3.  Anton Khudobin

  6.  Lars Volden
  7.  Zane Gothberg

Anton Khudobin

Posted: February 16, 2012 by Steven Ellis in Boston Bruins


The Good: Khudobin is small at 5’10, but an intense competitor with a lot of confidence and athleticism who can play both solid technically as well as break free from his technique to make the spectacular save.  He has a better glove than stick, and very quick feet. He has excellent recovery ability. Reads and anticipates the play well. Has the ability to steal games and even has a few stolen NHL games on his resume. He does a great job of scrambling to cover loose pucks around his crease area and he does like to challenge shooters with an active stick. With a style very similar to Boston’s Tim Thomas, Khudobin is NHL ready right now. As such, he will appear non-traditional and unconventional, but in actuality has a refined and effective butterfly style. He’ll also stand up when possible, which allows him to economize his movements and conserve energy.  However the depth in Boston’s nets, with Thomas and Rask, will keep Khudobin in the minors for the time being. He has an abundance of puck-stopping ability and is cool under pressure and plenty agile. He can, and has,  put up great statistics at lower levels. (more…)

Tuukka Rask

The Good: Rask is a talented goaltender with plenty of upside. Rask is likely to develop his movement to the level of the very best in the world. Right now the butterfly goalie moves with an explosive, controlled horizontal slide while maintaining good coverage. He gets back to his feet instantly when needed. With these qualities, when on his game, he has always been able to save his team from no matter how dominant opponents. Rask’s frame is decent and he shows good coverage from time to time but suffers from inconsistent technique, which he will be working on for a long time still. Once Tim Thomas hits the retirement home, Rask will solidify himself as a top goalie in the NHL. When Thomas was injured in 2009-2010, Rask stepped up as the Bruins top goalie, and was very impressive, making the second round of the playoffs. He has been played in a big number of games each season. He shines in big games.
