The Anaheim Ducks were the only team not to do anything during free agent frenzy Friday.

The Ducks failed to ink one player or even re-sign their RFAs. There are still plenty of players on the market so perhaps the Ducks are looking for bargains. They currently are $15.6 million under the cap but need some to re-sign Rickard Rakell and Hampus Lindholm and they will not max out to the cap. Stay tuned as the Ducks currently have fallen behind many teams in the Western Conference.

The Anaheim Ducks went after forwards during the draft after picking defensemen the last few years.

The Ducks thought that there was a lack of depth up front and while their philosophy is to take the best player available, they certainly tried to add to their forward group. "Our depth at the forward prospects is not as strong as it is on defense," director of amateur scouting Martin Madden said. "Last year, a few defensemen fell to us and we just could not pass on them. This year, at almost every pick, we felt there was more value with the forward group." The Ducks had two first round picks and selected Max Jones and Sam Steel, both forwards.

Recently appointed Ducks head coach Randy Carlyle is leaning towards retaining Paul MacLean and Trent Yawney has his assistants.

With MacLean and Yawney's help, the Ducks led the NHL on both the power play and penalty kill in 2015-16. "Am I going to make a change with two people that had that kind of success in the previous year, and their good hockey men and they’re good people and they work hard," Carlyle said. "That’s the way I evaluate people on what they do and how they present themselves day in day out." The future of the Ducks' third assistant, Rich Preston, is less clear.

Randy Carlyle has officially been named the new head coach of the Anaheim Ducks.

Carlyle has the most wins (273) and most games coached (516) in Ducks history. He also won the Stanley Cup as the bench boss of Anaheim in 2007. "A proven winner and motivator, Randy has expertly managed the bench throughout his coaching career," said Ducks GM Bob Murray. "Our expectations are extremely high, and I believe Randy is the coach who can lead us to playoff success and our ultimate goal, the Stanley Cup." Carlyle added that he is happy to be back with the organization and he believes this team "can win immediately."

TSN's Darren Dreger is reporting that the Anaheim Ducks will be rehiring Randy Carlyle as their coach.

Dreger says the announcement will be made Tuesday. Carlyle coached the Ducks from 2005 through 2011. He coached the Toronto Maple Leafs after being fired by the Ducks. Anaheim won the Stanley Cup under Carlyle in 2007.

According to TSN's Darren Dreger, the Anaheim Ducks interviewed Randy Carlyle about their head coaching vacancy on Tuesday.

Carlyle was the head coach in Anaheim from 2005 to 2011. He was behind the bench when the Ducks won the Stanley Cup back in 2007. Carlyle has also reportedly met with the Flames about their head coaching vacancy. Dreger also mentioned that the Ducks could be looking to hire Travis Green, who's the head coach of the Utica Comets (AHL).

The Flames are going to "zero in focus" on their coaching search Monday, and Randy Carlyle will be among those interviewed, according to TSN’s Darren Dreger.

Carlyle last coached the Maple Leafs in the 2014-15 season. He has a 364-260-80 record in 10 seasons, though he did not fare well with the Leafs. The Flames have advanced to the playoffs once in the past seven seasons.

The San Jose Sharks have gained permission to speak with former Maple Leafs bench boss Randy Carlyle.

That doesn't mean the Sharks will hire Carlyle, just that they're considering him along with what is likely many other candidates. Carlyle recently expressed an interest in returning to coaching after being fired by the Leafs during the 2014-15 campaign. He has an impressive 364-260-80 career record, but he struggled over his tenure with the Leafs. It's worth noting though that after Carlyle was fired, the Maple Leafs collapsed entirely under new bench boss Peter Horachek.

Former Anaheim Ducks and Toronto Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle knows who he is and what he wants to do, "I'm a coach. I want to coach. That’s what I do." And he wants back in, "In a lot of ways, it's who I am."

Two teams have already opened up potential destinations for Carlyle in Buffalo and Philadelphia, and more could potentially become available in San Jose, Detroit, Boston, and Pittsburgh. Just to name a few. "It's the excitement of sports and competition. I miss it a lot." Carlyle, who turned 59 years old today, is well accomplished as both a player and coach with 647 points in 1,055 career games and a Norris Trophy in 1980-81 as a player. Plus 364 wins over 10 seasons as a coach in the NHL with a Stanley Cup in 2006-07 with Anaheim.

Mikhail Grabovski, who took issue with how coach Randy Carlyle handled him during his tenure with the Maple Leafs, was diplomatic after Toronto fired Carlyle.

Grabovski said that he learned a lot from Carlyle, both "good and bad" and wished Carlyle luck going forward. He also suggested that the Maple Leafs issue was trying to change too much after they finally made the playoffs in 2013. Since the salary cap era started, that is the only time Toronto has made the postseason, although they are in the running to claim a Wild Card spot this season.

The Toronto Maple Leafs have fired head coach Randy Carlyle.

Steve Spott and Peter Horachek will take over the coaching duties for now. Unless Mike Babcock re-signs with the Detroit Red Wings, the Toronto Maple Leafs are likely to stick with an interim head coach for the remainder of the campaign. Carlyle had a 91-78-19 record with the Maple Leafs. After last season's collapse, there was speculation that Carlyle would be fired and the team's mediocre play this season ultimately cemented his fate.

Coach Randy Carlyle has been impressed with his players since they were throttled by Nashville

"What (losing 9-2 has) done, it's crystallized our team in some way," Carlyle said before Wednesday's game. "The desperation level has gone up in our group, understanding it's just unacceptable to get beat like that in your own building. Maybe it woke people up." The Leafs have earned five of a possible six points in the standings and they've held their opponents under 30 shots each time.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are on lockdown in their hotel in Ottawa.

The police are investigating multiple downtown shooting incidents after a soldier was shot at the National War Memorial. The NHL hasn't decided if the game scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET will go ahead as planned or if it will be postponed.

MLSE president and chief executive officer Tim Leiweke will stay in the fold until June 30, 2015 or until a new CEO is found.

"Under Tim's leadership, MLSE has made a number of key moves to strengthen our organization on the path to championship success," said MLSE chairman Larry Tanenbaum. "We look forward to working closely with Tim to build on this foundation and further accelerate our momentum as we seek a new leader for MLSE." Leiweke denied a report that he would be leaving Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment "soon" before they came out and cleared up the uncertainty. He plans to pursue the goal of owning and operating his own business.
