One potential landing spot for Jacob Trouba, should he be traded, is Toronto.

The Buds need a right-handed shot defenseman and the Jets could part with Trouba given he is behind both Dustin Byfuglien and Tyler Myers, who both shoot right. The Leafs have good young talent in their system and plenty of picks to satisfy the Jets. Keep an eye on this situation going forward.

Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 42 shots in Russia's 5-3 loss to Team Canada in the semifinal of the World Cup of Hockey on Saturday night.

Bobrovsky simply did not get much help from the defense for most of the night as the majority of the play was at his end of the rink. By the end of the second period, he had faced twice as many shots as Canadian netminder Carey Price. He gave Russia a chance, as the game was tied 2-2 after two, but Canada poured it on in the third and scored three more times. Bobrovsky made his most dramatic stop less than a minute into the third when he grabbed a rocket by Brad Marchand with a sliding glove save. Unfortunately, Marchand scored less than 30 seconds later on a second shot and then four minutes, 32 seconds later Bobrovsky gave up the game-winning goal to Corey Perry.

Team Canada's Brad Marchand scored two goals in their 5-3 win over Team Russia at the World Cup of Hockey semifinal.

Canada overpowered Russia with 47 shots on goal to 34, but prior to the third period Canada had an almost two to one margin in shots. Marchand had what appeared to be the game winning goal with a dramatic score at the 1:16 minute mark of the second period. Russia’s goalie Sergei Bobrovsky made a sliding glove save over Marchand less than a minute into this period, but the Boston Bruin shooter would not be denied and scored less than 25 seconds later. That was the go ahead and game winning goal until the final seconds of play. With an empty net Marchand and Canada got greedy trying to give him the hat trick. They lost focus on the other end of the ice and allowed Russia’s Artemi Panarin to score with nine seconds remaining. Corey Perry earned the game winning goal with Sidney Crosby and John Tavares also getting a piece of the action with one goal apiece. Canada will meet the winner of Sunday’s Europe versus Sweden contest in a best-of-three finale.

Jacob Trouba has requested a trade out of Winnipeg.

This should not be terribly surprising as there have been trade rumors for a couple of seasons now. Still, this is not what Winnipeg wants to hear. The former ninth overall pick in 2012 has been a stud on the Jets' blueline for three seasons now. Trouba has made sure to note that his request is specifically about wanting to "play the right side", and is not a reflection of his feelings towards the Jets nor the city of Winnipeg. Still just 22-years-old, Trouba just concluded his ELC last season and is a restricted free agent. Stay tuned.

Russia will be without their Magic Man for Saturday's semi-final against Canada.

A tough blow for Russia, to say the least. Pavel Datsyuk is suffering a lower body injury but no word yet on the extent. It's unclear if he'll be able to play should Russia advance.

Carey Price will tend Canada's net against Russia in Saturday's semi-final.

Price has turned away 63 of 65 shots faced through his two games of action in the round robin portion of the tournament. He also stopped 24 of 26 against Russia in the prelims. Canada has been utterly dominant thus far in the World Cup and Price is considered the best goalie in the world, so this one should be fun.

The Penguins have announced that Matt Murray will be out "three-to-six week" with a broken hand.

The injury came during Team North America's bout with Team Russia, which may help explain why he gave up four goals in a little over six minutes during the second period. Needless to say, Marc-Andre Fleury will enter the season as Pittsburgh's starter. Expect Murray to return between mid-October and early-November.

P.K. Subban will miss the start of training camp because of some general soreness.

"I've just been a little bit sore lately, so we're just going to take our time and make sure," Subban said. "I came in a couple days to skate early. Just a little bit sore, so we're going to see how I feel." This doesn't sound like a serious injury, so don't expect Subban to miss too much time. This shouldn't affect his draft position in standard fantasy leagues.

Alexander Steen has agreed to a four-year, $23 million contract extension with the St. Louis Blues.

Steen still has one season left on his three-year, $17.4 million deal, so the Blues have secured him through 2020-21 with this new contract. With this deal Steen is taking a relatively minor annual pay cut of $50,000. "St. Louis has become home. I've been here eight years," Steen said. "I've gotten to know a lot of people within hockey and outside hockey here. We seem to be spending less and less time in Sweden to make sure we get our time in here as well. It's been an incredible journey and St. Louis is definitely somewhere I see as home now." He had 17 goals, 35 points, and 52 penalty minutes in 67 contests last season. He's currently recovering from a shoulder injury, but is expected to be fine for the season opener.

Scott Hartnell has reactivated his no-movement clause.

Hartnell agreed to waive it two months ago, but with training camp underway he contacted Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen to inform him that he would no longer accept a trade. "I put it to rest with Jarmo," Hartnell said. "I said I'm coming back and I'm not having this over my head during training camp and the first month of the season. I have a no-move for a reason, and it's there for me now. (Kekalainen) had the opportunity and trade me and things didn't work out." Hartnell is playing through a six-year, $28.5 million deal that will expire in 2019. He had 23 goals, 49 points, and 112 penalty minutes in 79 contests in 2015-16.

Freddie Hamilton has inked a two-year, $1.225 million deal with the Calgary Flames.

Hamilton is set to make $575,000 this season and $650,000 in 2017-18. The deal is one-way, so he won't take a pay cut even if he ends up in the minors. He had a goal and an assist in four contests with Calgary last season along with 18 goals and 43 points in 62 AHL games.
