Jaromir Jagr looked sharp in his Flyers' debut

The Bulletin Board keeps you abreast of the latest news around the NHL Monday-Friday.

- Jaromir Jagr picked up point number 1,600 when he assisted on Claude Giroux’s impressive first period goal for the Philadelphia Flyers last night.  Jagr is just the ninth player to score 1,600 points and is also now the all-time scoring leader in season-openers, surpassing Ray Bourque.  Philly went on to beat the defending Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins 2-1 on the road.

- No one knows if James Reimer can handle the workload of being a full-time starting goalie, but the early results are positive.  Reimer blanked the Montreal Canadiens last night with 32 saves as Toronto won its season-opener 2-0.  Matthew Lombardi, who played just two games last season because of a concussion, scored in his first game back for the Leafs.

- Agitator extraordinaire Matt Cooke picked up two goals last night for the Pittsburgh Penguins, who beat the Vancouver Canucks 4-3 in a shootout.  Evgeni Malkin scored the game-winner.

- The felony charge for third-degree drug possession against Aaron Boogaard has been dropped.

- NHL opening weekend rosters feature 66 USHL alumni this year, up from 57 a year ago.

- Jason Pominville is the new captain of the Buffalo Sabres.

- The Phoenix Coyotes signed Martin Hanzal to a five-year, $15.5 million contract extension.

- Ryan Kesler should miss just the first five or six games for Vancouver after undergoing hip surgery this summer.

- 2011 fifth-overall pick Ryan Strome is still with the New York Islanders because of injuries, but he isn’t likely to actually play and will be returned to juniors once his teammates are healthy.

- The Dallas Stars signed 14th-overall pick Jamie Oleksiak to an entry-level deal.

- There are five other games today beside the Rangers’ season-opener, but none will be nationally televised.
