NHL Snap Shots: Clune, Beach, Langenbrunner, Horton, Matteau, Olympics, 2013-14 Schedule

Richard Clune has signed a two-year extension with the Nashville Predators, as reported by ESPN.  The deal is reportedly for $1.7 million through 2015-16.   The forward from Toronto played in 47 games with Nashville last season, picking up nine points.

NHL.com reports that the Chicago Blackhawks have re-signed forward Kyle Beach to a one-year deal.   Chicago's 11th overall draft pick in 2008, Beach scored 16 goals in 66 games for the Rockford Ice Hogs of the AHL last season, adding ten assists.

Jamie Langenbrunner would like to play for the Minnesota Wild this season, as reported on cbssports.com.  If that were to occur, he would be suiting up with another former New Jersey Devils' captain and native of Minnesota in Zach Parise.  

Nathan Horton, recently signed by the Columbus Blue Jackets, will be out between 4 and 6 months due to shoulder surgery according to the Toronto Sun.   Horton suffered the injury with the Boston Bruins during the Stanley Cup finals against the Chicago Blackhawks.   

The New Jersey Devils have shut down young forward Stefan Matteau for the remainder of their prospect's camp according to Rich Chere at NJ.com.   He reportedly has a minor injury that General Manager Lou Lamoriello would rather not push.   

It is expected that the NHL is on-board to play in the 2014 Olympics to be held in Sochi, Russia.  That announcement, as well as the 2013-14 NHL season schedule should be made available this week.
