Shane Doan has officially retired from the NHL after 21 seasons.
Doan announced his retirement in the newspaper following a 21-year career with the Arizona Coyotes. The 40-year-old was the seventh overall pick in 1995 and appeared in 1540 career NHL games, scoring 402 goals and 570 assists (972 points). Doan had 28 points (15G / 13A) in 55 career playoff games, but the Coyotes only made it out of the first round in eight of their nine playoff appearances.
The Jets placed Mark Stuart on waivers for the purpose of a buyout.
Stuart was entering his final season of a four-year deal that carried a $2.625M cap hit. Stuart’s buyout will save the Jets $1.2M against the cap next season. This was a longtime coming for Stuart, who suited up for just 42 games last season and has collected just three goals and four assists (seven points) in a combined 106 games over the last two seasons.
Weber (lower-body) will not play for the rest of the regular season; expected to practice Monday.
Liles will be in the Bruins lineup on Tuesday.
Liles has not been in the lineup since February 26th, but will replace Colin Miller in the lineup tonight vs. Nashville. The 36-year-old blueline has five assists in 31 games this season.
White (illness) is questionable to play on Tuesday.
White missed the Wild morning skate with an illness and is not expected to be in the lineup on Tuesday. Look for Jason Pominville to replace White tonight.
Michalek has been recalled from Tucson (AHL) and will play on Monday.
Michalek has 14 points (6G / 8A) in 43 games with Tucson this season, but earned himself a late-season call-up and will make his season debut on Monday. The 34-year-old blueliner has 178 points (42G / 136A) in 781 career NHL games and this might be a move to allow the veteran to finish out his Coyotes career in an NHL uniform.
Doan (lower-body) will not play on Monday.
Doan will miss his second straight game with a lower-body injury that he suffered last Thursday vs. the Red Wings. With Doan out, Anthony Duclair will remain in the lineup. The veteran winger is day-to-day.
