Jurcina Receives Arbitration Award

Defenseman Milan Jurcina has been awarded a one-year contract for next season worth about $1.4 million, according to a league source. Because that figure comes in below the $1.570 million "walk away" number, the award is binding and the case has been, in effect, settled pending the completion of some...

Agent: Nyls to Russia Is News to Him

If Michael Nylander is close to agreeing to play next season in the Kontinental Hockey League, as a recent report out of Russia has suggested, that's news to Nylander's agent. "For a year I've been hearing the [rumors]," Bill Zito told me earlier today. "Michael called me a couple times...

Jurcina Unlikely to Avoid Arbitration

Barring a last-minute change of position by either side, I'm told that the Caps are expecting Milan Jurcina's salary for next season to be determined in arbitration. The defenseman's hearing is set for tomorrow in Toronto. While it's tough to predict how much Jurcina will be awarded, it's hard to...
