The Columbus Blue Jackets have re-signed restricted free agent defenseman David Savard to a two-year deal worth $2.6 million.

Savard will make $1.3 million in each of the next two seasons, a significant raise from the $709,000 he made in 2012-13. The 23-year-old climbed the depth chart and earned significant playing time last season after an off-season workout program made him slimmer and quicker. In 70 games, he had five goals, 10 assists, 28 penalty minutes and a plus-2 rating. He also had four assists and four penalty minutes in the Blue Jackets' first-round Stanley Cup playoffs loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Savard, a fourth-round pick (No. 94 overall) in 2009, will come to training camp in September as the likely third-pair defensive partner of Dalton Prout. But Tim Erixon and Cody Goloubef -- both of whom will need to clear waivers before they can be sent to AHL Springfield -- will compete for that spot, too. The Blue Jackets' top four defensemen from last season -- Fedor Tyutin - Jack Johnson and Ryan Murray - James Wisniewski -- are all returning.

Detroit newcomer Marek Zidlicky scored a power-play goal at 1:09 of overtime to give the Red Wings a 2-1 triumph over the visiting New York Rangers Wednesday night.

Zidlicky scored his first goal as a Red Wing in his first game with Detroit since being acquired from New Jersey at the trade deadline this week. Zidlicky was dealt by the Devils for a third-round pick in the 2016 NHL draft. If the Wings reach the Stanley Cup final, New Jersey would get Detroit's second-round pick. Zidlicky, a veteran defenseman, can be an unrestricted free agent after the season. The Wings were in hot pursuit of a right-handed defenseman and they got one in Zidlicky. His goal Wednesday gives him 24 points (five goals) in 64 games this season. The other Detroit goal scorer in this one was Justin Abdelkader, who gave the Wings a 1-0 lead at 6:12 of the first period. Abdelkader now has 14 goals on the season. Henrik Zetterberg assisted on both Detroit goals and increased his season total to 36. Zetterberg was playing for the first time after missing four games because of a head injury.

Ottawa goaltender Andrew Hammond, making his seventh consecutive start for the Senators, excelled in his team's 3-1 triumph over the Jets in Winnipeg Wednesday night.

Hammond turned aside 35 of the 36 Winnipeg shots he faced. He shut out the Jets in the first periods. Hammond has been playing because Craig Anderson has been out with a hand injury. Hammond has been first-rate since joining Ottawa. He is 6-0 with a goals-against average of 1.35 and a save percentage of .957. Inspired by Hammond's suprising success, the Sens have won eight of their past 11 games and are making a late-season push for a playoff spot.

David Clarkson suffered a torn oblique Tuesday and he's expected to miss four-to-six weeks.

That will likely sideline him for the rest of the season. Columbus has been hit hard by injuries all year and Clarkson got to start in just three games with his new club. He didn't pick up a point during that time, but he racked up 14 minutes in penalties.
Mar 4 - 4:44 PM

Brett Connolly sustained a broken finger and he'll miss six weeks.

Boston just acquired Connolly from Tampa Bay and he didn't even get to play before getting injured in his second practice with his new teammates. He was struck by a shot from Dennis Seidenberg on Wednesday.

Roberto Luongo is undergoing tests on his shoulder.

He is scheduled to get more imaging done and will be meeting with an orthopedic doctor. Luongo was injured Tuesday after he blocked a high shot from Toronto's Leo Komarov. However, he managed to return and finish the game.

Henrik Zetterberg has been cleared to play Wednesday.

He has missed four games after he was punched in the head by Dallas forward Jamie Benn back on Feb. 21. Zetterberg is slated to between Justin Abdelkader and trade deadline acquisition Erik Cole against the Rangers.
Mar 4 - 1:57 PM

Trevor Daley is expected to miss "weeks" after he was hit knee-on-knee by Islanders forward Matt Martin.

He finished the game with just 43 seconds of ice time after he was injured on his second shift. Coach Lindy Ruff expects Martin to be suspended and he has a hearing scheduled for Wednesday. Daley is a big loss for the Stars. He averages 23:07 of ice time and he has collected personal highs with 16 goals and 33 points in 61 contests.
Mar 4 - 1:08 PM

Andrew Hammond will get the nod for Ottawa again on Wednesday.

Craig Anderson (hand) isn't ready to play yet, so Hammond will start against Winnipeg after he played in Tuesday's 3-2 shootout loss to Minnesota. Hammond has been superb in his previous six starts for the Senators.
Mar 4 - 12:56 PM

Jordan Caron skated alongside Matt Duchene and Jarome Iginla at practice on Tuesday.

He didn't record a point in 11 games for Boston this season, but Colorado appears to be giving him a good opportunity to succeed right off the bat. "It hasn't always been the way I wanted it to be in Boston, so I'm excited for a new start and to prove people wrong and show what I can do in the NHL," Caron said.

Matt Martin will have a disciplinary hearing Wednesday for kneeing Dallas blueliner Trevor Daley.

He picked up a five-minute major for kneeing and a game misconduct just 1:48 into the opening period.
Mar 4 - 12:05 PM

Dan Ellis has been called up by Florida.

Al Montoya is out with a groin injury that he sustained Tuesday night and the status of Roberto Luongo is uncertain after he suffered an upper-body injury in the same game. Ellis could end up being Florida's starter on Thursday against Dallas.
