• Jamie Langenbrunner retired after a 16-year career in which he won two Stanley Cups. The 38-year-old right wing won the Stanley Cup with Dallas in 1999 and New Jersey in 2003. He appeared in 1,109 games, finishing with 243 goals and 420 assists.
• The Oilers made a pair of moves involving goaltenders. They acquired backup goalie Ben Scrivens from the Kings for a third-round pick in the upcoming draft. Edmonton also sent goalie Devan Dubnyk to the Predators for forward Matt Hendricks. Scrivens went 7-5-4 over 19 appearances in his only season with the Kings. He had a 1.97 goals-against average, a .931 save percentage and three shutouts with the Kings. The Predators were able to get rid of the four-year contract they signed Hendricks to last July for $7.4 million.
• Red Wings center Pavel Datsyuk was named captain of Russia's Olympic hockey team. Datsyuk is recovering from a lower-body injury that has sidelined him almost two weeks.
• Zach Parise returned to practice with the Wild for the first time since playing against the Rangers on Dec. 22, NHL.com reported. Parise reportedly was diagnosed with a fractured foot and has been on injured reserve since Dec. 28.
• Maple Leafs center Dave Bolland took strides Wednesday toward his return to the lineup, TSN reported. A video on the Leafs' website showed Bolland skating in full pads and taking part in individual drills. Bolland suffered a severed tendon in his left ankle while playing against the Canucks in early November.
