from Hometown Hockey,
Scott and Rob Niedermayer did everything together growing up as kids in Cranbrook and since the brothers were just 16 months apart in age, they could also be teammates on several hockey teams. When Scott and Rob went their separate ways to pursue hockey careers at the age of 16, they never thought they’d have the opportunity to play on the same team again. Not only did they end up playing together again, but they won championships together, including the Stanley Cup.

Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello announced this afternoon that the team has signed Rob Niedermayer, the younger brother or former Devil Scott Niedermayer.
“I felt that we needed a little size and strength down the middle and now with Travis [Zajac] and [Dainius Zubrus] and Robbie [6-2, 200] I think we’ve got three pretty good size-strength center icemen,” Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said. “We know Robbie very well, of course. We played against him in the Stanley Cup [in 2003 with Anaheim. He’s one of those forwards that can be used in different roles.”

Sources tell TSN Rob Niedermayer is in negotiations with the KHL’s (CSKA) Moscow Red Army and failing an NHL team surfacing with a suitable offer within the next few days, the veteran forward will sign a one year contract to play in Russia.
Sources say Niedermayer has received some interest from NHL teams, but none of the offers have been considered financially worthy.
from Steve Gorten of the Sun-Sentinel,
Even with the first day of Panthers’ training camp just five days away, several big-name free agents remain on the market:
Some of the names: forwards Miroslav Satan, Michael Peca, Robert Lang, Maxim Afinogenov, Mike Comrie, Petr Sykora, Dominic Moore, Mats Sundin and Rob Niedermayer….
Five of those, in my opinion, make sense and would help the Panthers: Comrie, Sykora, Moore, Satan and Niedermayer, an original Panther from the inaugural team.
Let’s start with Rob, whose addition would also excite the fan base.

Anaheim right wing Corey Perry said he probably will play in Game 4 of the Ducks’ playoff series against the Dallas Stars.
After a morning skate-around, Perry said he felt good but acknowledged it will be a game-time decision whether he will play Thursday night. The Ducks’ top goal scorer hasn’t played since March 6, when the quad tendon above his right knee was lacerated by the skate of Colorado goalie Jose Theodore.
Fellow right wing Rob Niedermayer did not make the trip to Dallas for Thursday night’s game, remaining home with concussion-like symptoms. He also missed Game 3.
from Ducks Blog at the OC Register,
Checking-line right wing Rob Niedermayer was noticeably absent when the Ducks took the ice for practice Monday at a suburban Dallas rink.
Niedermayer was not even in Texas, though Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said Niedermayer would “most likely” take an evening flight from Orange County to Dallas. Niedermayer’s availability for Tuesday night’s third game of an opening-round Stanley Cup playoff series against the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center is uncertain because of what the team called only an upper-body injury….
Right wing Corey Perry, meanwhile, could be a long-shot possibility to play Tuesday after having gone through his most demanding practice since suffering a partially severed right-quadriceps tendon March 6.
“There’s a chance. There’s always a chance,” Perry said.
