1. GUERIN WON’T BE A FLYER
At 39, 18 year veteran, Bill Guerin, is now a player without a team. On September 13, this two time Stanley Cup champion was given a tryout with the Philadelphia Flyers, but didn’t make the cut. Guerin, who had 21 goals and 45 points last year with the Pittsburgh Penguins, missed two pre-season games due to an infected elbow. During his career, this former 1989 New Jersey Devils first round pick, has scored 429 goals and 856 points in 1,263 games with the Devils, Edmonton Oilers, Boston Bruins, Dallas Stars, St. Louis Blues, St. Jose Sharks, New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins.

2. BERNIER A PROUD KING
The Los Angeles Kings took care of some in house business this week when they signed their 2006 first round pick goalie, Jonathan Bernier, to a two year 2.5 million dollar contract extension. Last year the 22 year-old played in the American Hockey League with Manchester, where he posted a 30-21-6 record with a 2.03 GAA and a .936 save percentage. In three games with the Kings Bernier, who will be backing up Jonathan Quick this year, posted a 3-0 record with a 1.30 GAA and a .957 save percentage.

3. VANEK AND LALIME BACK IN SABRES LINE-UP
Buffalo Sabres scoring forward, Thomas Vanek, who is coming off a sub-par 53 point season, has declared himself ready for action, after recovering from a head injury suffered last week in a 5-3 win against the Montreal Canadiens. Meanwhile, goaltender, Patrick Lalime, who posted a 2.81 GAA in 16 games, is recovering from a groin injury. Coach, Lindy Ruff, has stated that they will be ready for Friday, when Buffalo plays their opener against the Ottawa Senators.
