BUFFALO, N.Y. (March 2, 2015) --- The Buffalo Sabres today announced that the team has acquired forward Jack Nevins and a seventh-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for forward Torrey Mitchell.

Nevins (6’2”, 199 lbs., 9/18/93), who signed a three-year contract with the Canadiens in March 2013, has played 32 games with the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL) this year in his first full professional season, totaling 88 penalty minutes.

A native of Stittsville, Ontario, Nevins made his professional debut in 2013-14 with three games in Hamilton after recording 48 points (19+29) and 159 penalty minutes in his final QMJHL season with Charlottetown and Rouyn-Noranda.

Practice Tweets: No Helm, Datsyuk or Kronwall; Pleiness believes Marchenko headed to GR

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Updated at 2:36 PM: Trade deadline or no trade deadline, the Red Wings are holding a 2 PM EST practice today, as the Detroit News's Gregg Krupa notes:

@DetroitRedWings on ice at University Liggett School in one of the Grosse Pointes. Much news, but neither Cole nor Zidlicki will be here.


Stephen Weiss on ice for Wings practice. Zetterberg (head injury) is suiting up and will skate.


Well, at least I got it out of my system. CORRECTION: "Zidlicky."


2d graders from Liggett school, who just got off ice for gym class, here watching practice, with Ms. McCoy and Ms. Coyro.


Babcock not presiding at practice, 48 minutes before trade deadline.


Helm not skating, obviously. Datsyuk in repose, apparently. Zetterberg pushing it, here, in drills.


Marchenko not at practice. Roster space, for Zidlicky? Probably. Kindl skating here.

The Macomb Daily's Chuck Pleiness is also reporting for duty...

Petr Mrazek named AHL player of the week

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

From the American Hockey League:

The American Hockey League announced today that Grand Rapids Griffins goaltender Petr Mrazek has been selected as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Mar. 1, 2015.

Mrazek made three road starts last week and turned aside 83 of 85 shots, going 3-0-0 with a 0.67 goals-against average, a .976 save percentage and two shutouts as the Griffins held on to their lead atop the Midwest Division.

On Tuesday, Mrazek finished with 31 saves as Grand Rapids defeated Iowa, 6-2, in Des Moines. Then on Friday evening, Mrazek made 25 stops as the Griffins shut out Milwaukee, 4-0. Finally, Mrazek stopped 27 shots on Saturday night to earn his third shutout in his last four outings, a 5-0 victory at Chicago that allowed Grand Rapids to tie a franchise record with its seventh consecutive road win. Mrazek enters the new week with a shutout streak of 144:28.

A fifth-round selection by Detroit in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Mrazek has split the 2014-15 season between Grand Rapids and the parent Red Wings. In 11 AHL appearances with the Griffins, Mrazek has a record of 8-2-0 with a 2.07 goals-against average, a .924 save percentage and three shutouts; he has also gone 13-5-1 (2.55, .909, 1 SO) in 20 NHL contests with Detroit. The 23-year-old native of Ostrava, Czech Republic, backstopped the Griffins to a Calder Cup championship as a rookie in 2013, playing every minute of their 24-game postseason run, and was voted a Second Team AHL All-Star in 2013-14.

In recognition of his achievement, Mrazek will be presented with an etched crystal award prior to an upcoming Griffins home game.
