Steve Shields was traded Sunday by the Boston Bruins to the Florida Panthers, who needed to strengthen their goaltending. The Bruins received future considerations in the deal that came three days before the season opens. Shields will replace backup goalie Jani Hurme, who was lost in Friday's NHL waiver draft. Roberto Luongo is Florida's starting goalie. "We had a couple of other options," Panther General Manager Rick Dudley said. "Shields was at the top of the list."

The Mighty Ducks traded goalie Steve Shields, a piece of the Teemu Selanne deal, to the Boston Bruins Tuesday for a third-round draft pick in 2003. The Bruins signed Shields, a restricted free agent, to a two-year deal for a base salary of $1.2 million, with incentives that could push it over $2 million. The deal further indicates that Boston officials have no interest in re-signing unrestricted free agent Byron Dafoe after his disappointing performance in the playoffs.

Goaltender Guy Hebert has apparently played his last game as a Mighty Duck. Pierre Gauthier, team president and general manager, put the last original Duck on nonroster waivers Monday to make room for newly acquired goalie Steve Shields. Gauthier said he hopes to trade Hebert by next Tuesday's deadline. Hebert's future with the club had been in question for some time. The Ducks demoted him, moving Jean-Sebastien Giguere into the starter's role last month.

The Mighty Ducks have exercised their option on goalie Steve Shields, one of two players the team acquired from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for Teemu Selanne last March. The $2-million option could make re-signing restricted free agent Jean-Sebastien Giguere more difficult. Giguere, the Ducks' No. 1 goalie after being recalled from minor league Cincinnati in January, made $605,00 last season, Shields, 28, started the season as the Sharks' No.

All goalie Steve Shields can control is what is in his power to control. At the moment, he has a chokehold on the Mighty Ducks' goalie situation. Coach Bryan Murray had an easy time deciding who would start in goal for the Ducks tonight against Ottawa. Shields was exceptional Friday in a 2-1 victory over New Jersey. He stopped 44 of 45 shots, including all 19 in the first period.

Steve Shields wasn't showcasing himself for a possible trade. He just wanted some work. Shields stopped 21 of 22 shots and Paul Kariya scored two goals as the Mighty Ducks beat the Atlanta Thrashers, 4-1, Wednesday night. Shields, who played for only the second time since Jan. 21, could be on the move by the March 19 trading deadline. But he says interested teams wouldn't put too much stock in one game. Especially when he faced only one shot in the first period.

Mighty Duck goalie Steve Shields made his first start in 20 days and it was anything but a pleasant outing. Shields has been on the bench since Jan. 21, a streak of seven games. He wasn't at his best Sunday in a 5-1 loss to the Dallas Stars, although he said more work isn't what he needs. "Right now I need a lot of goals," Shields said. The strong play of Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who is sixth in the league in save percentage and goals-against, has kept Shields on the bench.

It was a short night of work for Mighty Duck goalie Steve Shields in a 5-3 loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday. Shields was pulled 3 minutes 19 seconds into the second period after the Ducks fell behind, 4-0. He saw 13 shots, four of which went in. It ended a string of solid games by Duck goalies, who had allowed only 28 goals in 16 games. But it was hard to blame Shields because the Red Wings scored on all three of their first-period power plays.

Mighty Duck goaltender Steve Shields made his second consecutive start against San Jose on Wednesday night at Arrowhead Pond and the good news is that he didn't lose his cool. But that's only because none of the Sharks tried to get rough with him when he tried to make a save like the Dallas Stars did in his last start. "I'll probably snap again if that did happen," Shields said before Wednesday's game. "I put a lot of work into what I do and I prepared myself to play under certain rules.

The fact that Mighty Duck goalie Steve Shields was angry was obvious. There were a few things that deserved his indignation. He had to survive a storm of shots in a 2-2 tie with the Dallas Stars in front of an announced crowd of 11,917 at the Arrowhead Pond Sunday. He did what he could, stopping 42 of 44 shots, but saw a 2-1 lead go poof . He got mugged behind the net in the second period by Dallas defenseman Derian Hatcher. Yet what bugged Shields the most was one shot and one ruling.

Buffalo goaltender Dominik Hasek is not expected to play in Game 7 of the Sabres' first-round series tonight against the Ottawa Senators at Buffalo. Hasek has not played since suffering a sprained knee in Game 3. The Sabres lost the next two games with Steve Shields in goal before Shields posted his first career shutout in a 3-0 victory in Game 6 Sunday. The Sabres, who have won only one playoff series since 1983, will face Philadelphia in the second round if they win tonight.

Robert Lang zeroed in and let loose a slap shot. Mighty Duck goalie Steve Shields tracked the puck all the way and snagged it with his glove. This was the opening minute, and the first of many shots Shields would face. Shot ... save. The Pittsburgh Penguins would see that throughout the game. That the Ducks managed to hang on for a 4-2 victory Saturday in front of 15,411 at Mellon Arena was due in large part to Shields.
