NEWARK, N.J. — The New Jersey Devils placed defenseman Colin White and recently acquired right wing Trent Hunter on waivers. The team will buy out both player’s contracts if they are not picked on waivers.
White was to be paid $3 million next season in the final year of his contract. Hunter had two years left at $2 million annually. The combined cap hit for buying out the two players for next season would be $1.67 million.
c Newly acquired All-Star defenseman Brent Burns signed a five-year, $28.8 million contract extension with the San Jose Sharks. Burns, 26, scored 17 goals last season, third among all defenseman. He also had 29 assists, giving San Jose another proven puck-moving defenseman to go with veteran All-Star Dan Boyle.
Chelios played 26 NHL seasons with Montreal, Chicago, Detroit and Atlanta. Suter spent most of his 17 seasons with Calgary and helped the Flames to a Stanley Cup crown in 1989. Tkachuk played nearly two decades and is one of just four American-born players to score 500 career NHL goals.
They were joined by Philadelphia Flyers founder and current owner Ed Snider along with play-by-play announcer Mike Emrick. Induction will take place this fall.
NBA, players talking again, one month into lockout
NEW YORK — NBA owners and players have resumed talks toward a new collective bargaining agreement, exactly one month after the lockout began.
Though representatives from the sides have met since July 1, the session Monday was the first since then to include Commissioner David Stern, and players’ association executive director Billy Hunter and president Derek Fisher of the Los Angeles Lakers. They were joined by vice president Theo Ratliff, also of the Lakers.
Far apart on numerous issues, the sides were unable to negotiate a new CBA before the old one expired at the end of the day June 30.
