Loui Eriksson has been nominated for the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy.

The trophy is awarded "to the player adjudged to have exhibited the best type of sportsmanship and gentlemanly conduct combined with a high standard of playing ability." Should Eriksson win, he'll join Rick Middleton (1982), Jean Ratelle ('76), and Johnny Buyck ('74, '71) as the award winners in franchise history in the modern era.

The Boston Bruins have a one percent chance of winning the NHL Draft Lottery on Saturday.

That's the worst odds of any of the non-playoff teams. Boston also has just a 1.1 percent chance of moving to No. 2 and a 1.3 percent chance to get the No. 3 spot. If the Bruins were able to dramatically move up in the draft then it would certainly shake up the NHL Draft.

Patrice Bergeron has been named a finalist for the Selke Trophy, as the NHL's best defensive forward.

He has won the award three times in the last four years, including the last two seasons. Los Angeles' Anze Kopitar and Ryan Kesler of the Anaheim Ducks are the other finalists.

Daniel Vladar could play in the AHL or CHL next season.

He can't return to the USHL or play college hockey now that he has signed an entry-level contract with the Boston Bruins. The 6-foot-6, 185-pound netminder could be with Providence in 2016-17 depending on how his training camp goes, but the Bruins don't intend to place him in the ECHL.

The Boston Bruins have signed Daniel Vladar to a three-year, entry-level contract.

He posted a 12-12-4 record with a 2.31 GAA, a .920 save percentage and three shutouts in 30 games with the Chicago Steel of the USHL. Vladar was chosen by the Bruins in the third round (75th overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

Boston hasn't given up trying to sign Loui Eriksson.

GM Don Sweeney has spoken to Eriksson's agent since the season ended. He can become an unrestricted free agent in July.
Apr 20 - 4:47 PM

Torey Krug will require shoulder surgery, according to Boston Bruins president Cam Neely.

A timetable for his return should come into focus after the procedure, but we would guess that Krug will be ready for training camp. He posted four goals and 40 assists in 81 games this past campaign.
Apr 20 - 4:45 PM

Tuukka Rask posted a .915 save percentage in 2015-16.

That's well below his career average of .924. He also posted an .829 high-danger save percentage, according to war-on-ice.com, which tied him with Carolina's Cam Ward. That isn't an elite performance from a goalie who is the third-highest paid player at his position in the league. He is unlikely to be traded by the Bruins, so he'll have to find a way to get back to his prior form next season.

Boston will probably be looking to upgrade their goaltending in the off-season.

Gustavsson can become an unrestricted free agent and could be permitted to walk away after he posted a 2.72 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage in 24 appearances. Jhonas Enroth and Al Montoya might be options on the open market.

Boston prospect Jeremy Lauzon is going to be OK after sustaining a neck laceration in a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoff game Friday night.

It was a scary incident in which the Bruins' second-round pick of 2015 sustained a cut on his neck that required immediate surgery. Thankfully, Lauzon is out of danger and should make a full recovery. Lauzon scored 10 goals and registered 50 in 45 games with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies this season.
Apr 16 - 9:02 AM

Boston GM Don Sweeney still feels that Claude Julien is the best man for the job.

He announced on Thursday that Julien would be back coaching the Bruins in 2016-17. "I emphatically believe that Claude is a coach who can take us through what I'll describe as a bumpy transition period this year," said Sweeney. "We've got work to do. I have work to do." There are expected to be changes among his assistants and Doug Houda will not be brought back.
Apr 15 - 7:44 AM

Frank Vatrano has been voted as a co-winner of the Dudley (Red) Garrett Memorial Award as the AHL's top rookie.

His 34 goals in 34 games leads the league and he has 51 points in 34 contests. The 22-year-old stands a good chance of being with the Boston Bruins in 2016-17.

Matt Beleskey might undergo a procedure on his hand/finger during the off-season, according to GM Don Sweeney.

He didn't finish the season on the sidelines, but playing through injuries isn't anything new for most NHL players. Beleskey posted 15 goals along with 22 assists and 65 penalty minutes in 80 games during his first season with the Boston Bruins.
Apr 14 - 11:05 AM

Torey Krug may have shoulder surgery in the off-season.

Krug played heavier minutes down the stretch because of injuries, but apparently he was banged up himself. He will be a restricted free agent in the summer.
Apr 14 - 11:02 AM

Claude Julien will be back as Boston's head coach next season.

Bruins GM Don Sweeney said that Julien would "absolutely" be behind the bench in 2016-17. The Bruins haven't made the playoffs for the last two seasons and there was some speculation that Julien might be let go.
