  • Free agent Kaberle nears deal with KHL club

    Sportsnet "Tomas Kaberle looks to be the latest aging NHL player to take his diminishing talents across the pond.

  • Canadiens To Use Final Compliance Buyout On D Kaberle

    TSN "The Montreal Canadiens have informed defenceman Tomas Kaberle that he will be the team's second and final compliance buyout.

  • Tomas Kaberle a better fit with Habs

    Boston Herald "Tomas Kaberle returned to the Garden last night for the second time this season, with his third team in seven months. Kaberle, who won a Stanley Cup with the Bruins in June, signed a surprisingly lucrative deal with the Carolina Hurricanes in the offseason, worth $4.25 million annually for..." December 20

  • Kaberle still has drive

    Raleigh News & Observer "Tomas Kaberle won't be the most forceful personality in the Carolina Hurricanes' dressing room next season. Nor will he be the one expecting to be smothered by media attention. And he won't be the one ordering younger players to follow his lead. So says Canes coach Paul Maurice, who..." July 07

  • Corvo, Kaberle swap an upgrade, but more work left

    Raleigh News & Observer "It's Joe Corvo's good fortune that after saying he wouldn't mind a trade, Tomas Kaberle was still available five days into the NHL's free-agent market, because the Carolina Hurricanes were able to sign Kaberle, offload Corvo for a fourth-round pick and make everyone happy. (Maybe. If Corvo was..." July 06

  • Kaberle off to Carolina

    Boston Herald "There had to be a significant element of uneasiness among the Bruins brass about re-signing unrestricted free agent defenseman Tomas Kaberle to a lucrative long-term contract. Yes, Kaberle played fairly well in the latter stages of the playoffs, but clearly his defensive-zone flaws overshadowed..." July 06

  • Peter Chiarelli likes what he sees in Tomas Kaberle

    Boston Herald "The Bruins had been on the hunt for Tomas Kaberle for a couple of years. But now that they've seen him, will they choose to keep him? The answer to that question will most likely come in the next 12 days for Kaberle, who will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. Bruins general..." June 18

  • Tomas Kaberle sees improvement

    Boston Herald "Defenseman Tomas Kaberle liked what he saw from the Bruins' power play despite what the numbers say. The stagnant power play fell deeper into the statistical sink hole by going 0-for-6 in Wednesday night's 1-0 loss to the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup..." June 03

  • Tomas Kaberle lays an egg in Bruins crushing defeat

    Boston Herald "If ever there was a play that depicted the Bruins' struggles during the final 40 minutes of yesterday's Game 4 loss, it was Tomas Kaberle's miscue that led to Tampa Bay's game-tying goal just past the midway point of the second period. Kaberle went back to retrieve the puck below his own goal..." May 22

  • It can only get better for Tomas Kaberle

    Boston Herald "There's still not a lot of slack in the rope that's been given to Tomas Kaberle. In the Bruins' 2-0 Game 3 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning, the defenseman played 12:41, only 9:25 while the Bruins were 5-on-5. But Kaberle, who struggled since coming to the Bruins just prior to the trade..." May 21

  • Kaberle's futility sums up opener

    Boston Globe "Tomas Kaberle is now officially a misfit toy, a borrowed piece from Toronto brought to the Hub to help the power play, only to end up looking like the plastic ear stuck in the middle of Mr. Potato Head's face. Tough on the eyes. Very tough. Embarrassing. Wasn't Kaberle supposed to make the..." May 15

  • Tomas Kaberle showing progress

    Boston Herald "There can be little debate over the fact that the Tomas Kaberle acquisition has not provided the kind of oomph the Bruins expected it to do. The power play was not cured of all its ills after the slick defenseman was obtained from the Toronto Maple Leafs on Feb.?18. And in the last two games of..." May 13

  • Kaberle feels he has turned over new leaf

    Boston Globe "Bruins defenseman Tomas Kaberle joked that it had been so long since he was in the playoffs, he would have to go look at film to refresh his memory. The last time he suited up for the postseason, in fact, was in 2004, when he played in 13 games for the Maple Leafs. In 77 career playoff games,..." April 14

  • Tomas Kaberle's ready

    Boston Herald "This is why Tomas Kaberle allowed his life to be turned upside down. Kaberle had been a career Maple Leaf, stationed in Toronto for a dozen years, and the 33-year-old Czech was very much attached to that city. But after two years of trade rumors and his contract with the Maple Leafs coming to..." April 14

  • Kaberle still searching for the power switch

    Boston Globe "The playoffs are just about here, and 22 games into his Spoked-B employment, Tomas Kaberle is still working out the kinks. Kaberle, Boston's key acquisition leading up to the Feb. 28 trading deadline, essentially is being deprogrammed from his career-long stay in Toronto, where the style he played..." April 07

  • Tomas Kaberle has 'mixed feelings' over Toronto return

    The Globe and Mail "Tomas Kaberle walked into the Air Canada Centre for the umpteenth time this morning, but for the first time, he was in the visitor's dressing room. Now a Boston Bruin after almost 12 seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Kaberle spoke very briefly with the media today about his..." March 20

  • Kaberle touched by video tribute

    Toronto Sun "The video tribute almost was too much for Tomas Kaberle to bear. And following his first game at the Air Canada Centre in a National Hockey League uniform that did not have a blue and white maple leaf on the chest, the Boston Bruins defenceman acknowledged he had a difficult time keeping a grip..." March 20

  • The dish on Kaberle: He can flat-out pass the puck

    Boston Globe "Sure is easy to see why the Bruins have been so eager these last couple of years to add Tomas Kaberle to their back line. The league is chock-full of guys who can provide the grunt work inherent in stout-hearted defense, but few players, forwards included, have Kaberle's skill for making velvety..." February 27

  • A tip o' the cap to Tomas Kaberle

    Boston Herald "It's tough to think of another player who sees the little things that go on within a game, the small subtleties of skills, patience, positioning and angles as Tim Thomas. So it is that the Bruins goalie is quite impressed with the intelligent and precise play of new teammate Tomas..." February 27

  • Bruins couldn't afford to take a pass on puck-moving Kaberle

    Boston Globe "Call the skill what you will. Stuff, it, that, or other similarly elusive words the game's insiders use to describe the NHL's most sought-after commodity. The bottom line is this: For most of 2010-11, the Bruins didn't have it. One week ago, they got it from Toronto in Tomas Kaberle. And..." February 25

  • Life after Kaberle

    Toronto Sun "The kids are all right! So says Leafs head coach Ron Wilson. "I think our work ethic has actually gotten a bit better," Wilson said after recent trades that have seen veterans such as Francois Beauchemin, Tomas Kaberle and Kris Versteeg depart. "It hasn't really affected our performance..." February 20

  • Trade says more than Kaberle ever did

    Toronto Star "With his rosy cheeks, Tomas Kaberle always looked like he'd just come in from tobogganing. It was, undeniably, a Slavic face. Funny how, after a dozen-plus years as a Toronto Maple Leaf, Kaberle seemed to have absorbed so little English. I suspect he could speak the lingo quite well, but it..." February 19

  • Tomas Kaberle's a big help

    Boston Herald "Tomas Kaberle arrived from the Ottawa airport an hour before the game, jumped into a set of Bruins gear jury-rigged for him by the team equipment guys, and 20 minutes later was on the ice with his new team. "Sometimes that's the best way to do it," said Kaberle, after playing 19:34 in the B's..." February 19

  • It's official: Tomas Kaberle headed to Boston

    Toronto Star "The Tomas Kaberle era, after several scuttled past departures, is officially over in Toronto. And the Maple Leafs' rebuild continues with yet another significant trade. The Leafs today sent Kaberle — yes, he agreed to waive his no-trade deal — to Boston for prospect Joe Colborne, a 6-foot-5..." February 18

  • Kaberle could help Bruins

    Toronto Sun "The Bruins usually welcome a visit by the Maple Leafs, but not when they bring with them the perfect storm of trade speculation. While in town, the Maple Leafs made the Kris Versteeg trade Monday night, finished the Aaron Voros deal over breakfast and then general manager Brian Burke held a..." February 16

  • Time to make power play for Kaberle

    Boston Globe "On a night cold enough for hell to freeze over, Phil Kessel scored twice. It had to happen eventually, of course, and the ex-Bruin's two goals ended up the centerpiece of Toronto's 4-3 win on Causeway Street. Here in the Hub of Hockey we'll be assessing the "Kess Trade'' for at least another..." February 16

  • Chris Kelly deal not enough

    Boston Herald "All the talk, all day and night, was about Tomas Kaberle. So impassioned were the rumors and speculation that the acquisition of the veteran Toronto defenseman by the Bruins was imminent, the big question was what number he would wear in Boston — what with Milt Schmidt's No. 15 hanging, retired,..." February 16

  • Kaberle to the rescue, Leafs keep playoff push alive

    Toronto Star "Tomas Kaberle, so far, has steadfastly refused to help rescue the Maple Leafs off the ice by waiving his no-trade clause. But this was one of those rare nights this season when he, or any of the Toronto defenders, gave the team some salvation on it. While the morbid fascination with sniper..." February 09

  • Luke Schenn hopes Tomas Kaberle's ride not over

    The Globe and Mail "To hear Luke Schenn tell it, Tomas Kaberle is in some ways the heart and soul of the Toronto Maple Leafs, a well-liked veteran who brings as much value off the ice as on it. And while Schenn defers to management when it comes to personnel decisions, it's clear the young defenceman would like to..." February 03

  • Kaberle would ponder no-trade

    Toronto Sun "Will he, or won't he? It seems that every season about this time, the issue of veteran defenceman Tomas Kaberle and the no-trade clause in his contract comes to the forefront of any talk related to the Leafs making a big move. And with the trade deadline looming, the question was once again..." February 02
