Jamie Langenbrunner Announces His Retirement

via NHLPA release...

TORONTO (January 15, 2014) – Jamie Langenbrunner announced his retirement today from the National Hockey League (NHL), bringing an end to a decorated career that spanned 16 NHL seasons.

Langenbrunner, 38, a native of Cloquet, Minnesota walks away from the game as a two-time Stanley Cup champion (1999, 2003) and a two-time Olympian with the United States (1998, 2010). The versatile and dependable forward appeared in a total of 1,109 games in his NHL career with three teams: Dallas Stars, New Jersey Devils and St. Louis Blues. Over the course of his career, Langenbrunner scored 243 goals and 420 assists for 663 points, and also recorded a plus-minus rating of +62 to go along with 837 penalty minutes.

Put The Langenbrunner Retirement Talk On Hold

from Rick Weegman of the Duluth News Tribune,

The former Cloquet High School star was to be feted for his 18-year playing career, one which organizers of a fundraising hockey game at the Heritage Center apparently believed to be over after hip surgery ended Langenbrunner’s season with the St. Louis Blues after just four games.

But the ceremony was a late scratch as Langenbrunner has no plans on retiring.

“I’m not ready yet,” he said before taking the ice at the Heritage Summer Hockey Classic. “After going through the surgery (for a torn labrum), I feel as good as I have as far as skating. It’s great to get to a point where there’s no pain skating, and I’m looking forward to continuing my training this summer and see where it takes me.”

An unrestricted free agent, Langenbrunner can sign with any team.

“It’s a process of waiting to see what teams need,” he said. “They went through their prospect camps, and then teams reconvene and figure out what they want to do — whether they want to bring in a veteran guy or if they are going to go young. We’ll see in the next couple weeks if there’s a good opportunity, and, if not, then I will figure out the next stage of life.”

Report- Langenbrunner Traded To Dallas

via Tom Gulitti tweet,

Devils have scheduled 10:30 a.m. conference call. At this point, my info (like others) is that Langenbrunner has been traded to Dallas.

As I reported yesterday, the talk all day yesterday was Langenbrunner was headed to Dallas although he has full control of where he would be traded with a NTC.

added 10:10am, via Bob McKenzie tweet,

I am hearing NJD are getting a third-round pick for Langenbrunner from DAL, but there may be some conditional elements to it as well.

added 11:15am,

Frisco, Tex. – Dallas Stars General Manager Joe Nieuwendyk announced today that the NHL club has acquired right wing Jamie Langenbrunner from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for a conditional third round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Langenbrunner, 35, is returning to the Stars – the team that he was drafted by (1993 second round, 35th overall) and played the first six and a half NHL seasons with (1995-2002). Now in his 14th NHL season, he has appeared in 996 career games, scoring 232 goals and 388 assists for 620 points and 776 penalty minutes. A two-time Stanley Cup Champion (Dallas 1999, New Jersey 2003), Langenbrunner’s four career playoff overtime goals are tied-for-first (also Chris Drury) among active players.

“We are very excited to add Jamie to our team,” said Nieuwendyk. “He fits the mold of the type of players we want on this roster – strong work ethic, tough, passionate, and hard to play against. All of our fans got to see first-hand what kind of a player Jamie is when he broke into the league in the nineties and was part of our Stanley Cup team in 1999. We are thrilled to be able to bring him back to Dallas.”

Jamie Langenbrunner May Be In The Avs Plans

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

There is, indeed, a possibility of Devils veteran Jamie Langenbrunner wearing the Burgundy and Blue before long. When I wrote a few days ago that the Avs might look Jersey’s way for help in the wake of Peter Mueller’s latest concussion (and buckle up, kids, because there’s more to that story that I’m working on) it wasn’t pure suggestion and guidance. I’d heard some “whispers” about the chances it could happen.

It appears others are hearing the same whispers, as excellent, longtime Devils beat writer Tom Gulitti of the Bergen Record wrote from the Jersey end that the Avs are after Langenbrunner.

It makes sense. The Avs have the lowest payroll in the league (still not to the cap floor yet), and the Devils are over the cap and must get below the max of $59.4 million by opening night.

Devils in the Details: September 20, 2010

• Tom Gulitti discusses the disappointing finish last season from Jamie Langenbrunner.  Said Langenbrunner on the media’s theories for his late-season struggles:

“I usually don’t read what goes on, but after the season I read a lot of what was said and I’m not going to comment on what’s the truth and what’s not,” Langenbrunner told me. “It’s probably somewhere in the middle of what’s said. I’m not going to drag that out there. That’s the past. I’m happy about the direction the team is going and looking forward to that.”

Langenbrunner Still Silent

from Mark Everson of the NY Post,

The captain clammed up. And after the Devils’ 3-0 victory over the Thrashers last night, he was nowhere to be found.

A mystery has developed around Jamie Langenbrunner, a week before the playoffs and in the wake of being “rested” by coach Jacques Lemaire on Saturday in Carolina….

Langenbrunner sat out for the first time this season in Saturday’s 4-0 victory in Raleigh for what Lemaire said was rest. Lemaire seemed stunned at the Langenbrunner mystery.

“I don’t know,” Lemaire said of what’s bothering Langenbrunner. “Maybe it’s personal. I don’t know. I don’t think he was in a bad mood.”

Of Saturday’s rest, Lemaire said, “I thought he needed rest.”

What’s The Problem With Langenbrunner?

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

With a little more than a week to go before the playoffs open, the Devils appear to have an unhappy captain.

Something clearly is bothering Jamie Langenbrunner, but he won’t say what it is.

Langenbrunner, who will be back in the lineup tonight in Atlanta after resting Saturday night in Carolina, would not speak to the media for the second day in a row.

“I have no comment,” he said after today’s morning skate when approached by the beat writers that cover the Devils.

Langenbrunner Out With Possible Groin Injury

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Devils captain Jamie Langenbrunner did not make the trip with the Devils to North Carolina and will miss at least the next two games of the team’s Eastern Conference quarterfinal against the Hurricanes with a suspected groin injury.

The Devils are still calling it a “lower-body injury.”

Langenbrunner was injured in the second period of a 2-1 overtime loss in Game 2 on Friday night.

“Jamie Langenbrunner will not be with us on this trip,” general manager Lou Lamoriello said. “He’ll be out these next couple of games and we’ll see how he is when we get back. But he’s not out of the first round at this point.”

“It’s going to be a day-by-day situation, but he definitely will not be on this trip.”

Friday Night Injury Report

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Devils captain Jamie Langenbrunner suffered an undisclosed injury and the Flyers defeated the Devils 5-3 tonight at Prudential Center.

Langenbrunner headed to the Devils’ locker room with the trainer after taking a hard hit from Flyers defenseman Luca Sbisa along the right wing boards in the Philadelphia zone 7:55 into the second period. It appeared Langenbrunner had a left leg injury, but it was difficult to tell.

more on the game…

via Steve Zipay of Blue Notes,

With 11:38 left in the second period, Rangers coach Tom Renney was clipped on the left side of the head by Rostislav Klesla’s stick during a scrum at the bench.

He went down to the floor, an official said between the second and third period, may have lost consciousness, was assisted off the ice and was being X-rayed. Assistants Mike Pelino and Perry Pearn took over. Renney did not return before the end of the period.

A Rangers spokesman said during the intermission that Renney “was OK. He was hit on the top of the head.”

added 10:11pm, from Norm Sanders of the New-Democrat,

St. Louis Blues goaltender Manny Legace suffered what the team called a lower-body injury Friday and did not return for the second period against the Los Angeles Kings.

Legace may have been injured when he slipped on a piece of carpeting coming out for pregame warmups. The carpet was on the ice for a pregame ceremony involving Republic vice-presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin.

More Playoff ‘Red’

from Fire & Ice,

[Jamie Langenbrunner] had on his official “Rock Your Red” T-shirt for this morning’s media availability at The Rock following a team meeting and did several television interviews with it on. “I’m Rockin the Red,” he said, though he had to endure some ribbing from his teammates.

More than one player expressed displeasure that fans have to buy the T-Shirts and won’t be get them for free at the game tonight. Their first concern, obviously, is with gettign ready for the Rangers tonight. All of them, including the coach, were itching for the puck to drop.

“I’m anxious to get going,” Sutter said. “I wish this game would have been played last night, our first game. I’m like everybody on the team, just anxious to get it started. You go through a whole season, an 82-game season, and there’s ups and downs, peaks and valleys, to set yourself up to play playoff hockey and we’re there now and I’m excited about it, anxious to get it going and I’m excited for the players. That’s what it’s all about.”

Langenbrunner to be Named Devils Captain

From Tom Gulliti at Fire & Ice,

There appears to be a slim chance it will happen before tonight’s game against Boston or it might not be until later this week, but the Devils are about to name Jamie Langenbrunner as their captain.

The usually-talkative Langenbrunner became extremely tight-lipped when asked this morning if he had been given the captaincy.

“Something will happen soon,” he said. “Let’s just leave it at that.”

What would it mean to Langenbrunner if he were named captain?

continued…

Update 6:37pm ET: Langenbrunner is now officially the captain, it appears. Gulliti updates that he was wearing the “C” in warmups. (*thanks to a KK reader for pointing it out…)

No Captain For Devils

from Fire & Ice,

Sutter said he would make a decision on whether to have a captain and who it will be after Jamie Langenbrunner returns from sports hernia surgery (probably near the end of November).

“There won’t be a decision on the captaincy until Langenbrunner is healthy,” Sutter said.

Langenbrunner Could Miss Significant Time

from the NY Post,

As revealed in Saturday’s Post, Langenbrunner tried a rest cure all summer for the injury he now admits was initially suffered in February. It recurred this month, keeping him out of training camp.

Recovery times vary and surely will depend on the injury itself, but he could be out 6-8 weeks, then require significant time to regain full fitness. His summertime rest cure prevented his usual training regimen, leaving him out of game shape, and further behind following surgery.

Langenbrunner, 32, said he wishes he’d gone straight for surgery during the offseason.

Langenbrunner May Be Facing Surgery

from the NY Post,

Langenbrunner, who played each of the Devils’ 93 regular-season and postseason games last season said little after sitting out yesterday’s opening camp workout. Sources, however, claim he tried a rest cure all summer for what the Devils call a “groin” injury, only to have it recur this month.

Surgery appears a real possibility for the 32-year-old, who apparently played for months with the injury last season, stretching his current streak to 144 straight games. Langenbrunner was third on the team with 60 points and 23 goals last season.
