  • Report: Jets suspend Byfuglien
    By Field Level Media / Saturday, September 21, 2019

    The Winnipeg Jets suspended defenseman Dustin Byfuglien for refusing to report to training camp, TSN reported Saturday.

    • The 34-year-old Byfuglien reportedly was considering retirement.

      Byfuglien has been absent since camp opened on Sept. 13. He met with Jets coach Paul Maurice on Thursday.

      General manager Kevin Cheveldayoff was hopeful Friday that the club could work something out with Byfuglien.

      "Dustin is a big part of our family here," Cheveldayoff told reporters. "There's always an open policy for discussions. We always care about people of our family. One thing I will say, healthwise, everything is good for him and his family. But again, from our standpoint, we support Dustin and look forward to the resolution."

      Byfuglien is scheduled to earn $8 million this season in the fourth year of a five-year deal.

      Byfuglien scored 31 points (four goals, 27 assists) in 42 games last season, his eighth in Winnipeg. He was twice sidelined due to different lower-body injuries.

      Overall, Byfuglien has recorded 525 career points (177 goals, 348 assists) in 869 games. He played his first five seasons with the Chicago Blackhawks and one with the Atlanta Thrashers before that franchise moved to Winnipeg before the 2011-12 season.

    By Field Level Media / Monday, September 16, 2019

    • "I'm really excited about signing with the Flyers and being able to call Philadelphia home for the next six years," the 22-year-old Konecny said.

  • NHLPA declines to reopen CBA
    By Field Level Media / Monday, September 16, 2019

    The NHLPA announced Monday that it declined to exercise its option to reopen the collective bargaining agreement following the 2019-20 season.

    • The decision means that the NHL will play without interruption through the 2021-22 season.

      If the union elected to reopen the collective bargaining agreement, the current deal would have expired on Sept. 15, 2020.

      "While players have concerns with the current CBA, we agree with the league that working together to address those concerns is the preferred course of action instead of terminating the agreement following this season," NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr said in a statement. "We have been having discussions with the league about an extension of the CBA and expect that those talks will continue."

      The NHL, which faced a Sept. 1 deadline to make its decision, announced Aug. 30 that it would not reopen the agreement. For its part, the NHLPA had until Monday to make its decision.

      The league's current collective bargaining agreement was ratified after the most recent lockout in 2013.

      In that span, the NHL has seen a steady growth in revenue, the birth of the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017-18 season as well as a 32nd club in Seattle set for the 2021-22 campaign.

    By Field Level Media / Saturday, September 14, 2019

    Minnesota Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon signed a seven-year, $53,025,000 contract extension, the team announced Saturday.

  • Capitals' Kuznetsov gets three-game NHL suspension
    By Field Level Media / Saturday, September 14, 2019

    The NHL suspended Washington Capitals center Evgeny Kuznetsov for three games without pay for what it termed inappropriate conduct.

    • The suspension stems from a positive test for cocaine at the 2019 IIHF World Championships on May 26. The International Ice Hockey Federation already banned him from international competition for four years. The ban took effect on June 13, 2019.

      Kuznetsov and NHLPA representatives met with commissioner Gary Bettman on Monday.

      In a statement issued through the Capitals on Saturday, Kuznetsov said he will not appeal the league's ruling.

      "I have decided to accept the NHL's suspension today. I am once again sorry that I have disappointed my family, my teammates, and the Capitals organization and fans. I promise to do everything in my power to win you back with my actions both on and off the ice," he said. "I also understand that I am fortunate to have an opportunity to make things right.

      "Thanks to the Capitals, NHL, and NHLPA, I have taken many steps in the right direction and I'm confident that I will continue on that path. I am grateful for everyone's support and I'm looking to move forward from this point. While I can appreciate that people may have additional questions, I will not be commenting further on this matter."

      Kuznetsov, 27, will be eligible to return to international play on June 12, 2023, meaning he cannot participate for his homeland, Russia, in the 2022 Winter Olympics.

      The ban didn't apply to his status with the Capitals. Under the NHL and NHLPA's joint Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program, players are not suspended for positive tests for marijuana or cocaine.

      The Capitals' first-round pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, Kuznetsov played in 76 games last season and tallied 72 points (21 goals, 51 assists). In his career, he's played in 416 games, scoring 337 points (101 goals, 236 assists).

  • Leafs, Marner agree to six-year deal
    By Field Level Media / Friday, September 13, 2019

    Restricted free agent right winger Mitch Marner finally ended a rough negotiation battle and agreed to a six-year contract extension with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Friday night.

    • The Leafs announced that the average annual value of the contract is $10,893,000 against the salary cap. Marner, 22, ranks now third among the club's highest-paid players behind centers Auston Matthews ($11,634,000) and John Tavares ($11 million).

      Among the league's wingers, the cap hit ranks second behind New York Rangers free agent acquisition Artemi Panarin ($11,642,857).

      Negotiations between the Leafs and Marner during the offseason were contentious, holding up the signings of a number of restricted free agent forwards around the league that included the Tampa Bay Lightning's Brayden Point and the Calgary Flames' Matthew Tkachuk.

      Marner's negotiating team reportedly discounted the deals of other forwards around the league while focusing on the contract numbers Matthews, with a five-year deal, received earlier this year.

      At one point in the negotiations, with Toronto and the player not close to reaching an agreement, Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas indicated that the club might not match an offer sheet if Marner signed with another team.

      Marner played in 82 games for the Maple Leafs last season, totaling a career-high and team-leading 94 points (26 goals, 68 assists).

      In 241 NHL regular-season games during his three-year career, he has collected 224 points (67 goals, 157 assists), along with 17 points (five goals, 12 assists) in 20 career Stanley Cup playoff games.

      Marner was drafted by the Maple Leafs, his hometown team, in the first round (fourth overall) of the 2015 NHL Draft.

  • Ducks' Kesler, Eaves to miss 2019-20 season
    By Field Level Media / Friday, September 13, 2019

    Anaheim Ducks forwards Ryan Kesler and Patrick Eaves will miss the 2019-20 season, the team announced Friday at the opening of training camp.

    • Kesler, 35, underwent right hip resurfacing surgery on May 9 in New York, which is a bone-preserving hip replacement aimed at easing pain. He could resume his career after a long recovery period but whether he will is uncertain. He played 60 games in Anaheim last season, tallying eight points (five goals, three assists).

      "At this point in my career, this surgery was the best option for my quality of life," Kesler said following the surgery. "The pain I was suffering has been greatly reduced since the procedure, and I'm grateful for that. While my playing future is unknown, I'm in a good place. I'm extremely appreciative of everyone that has helped me through the process. I look forward to spending more time with my family and doing everyday activities without pain."

      Eaves, also 35, has played nine games over the past two seasons, largely because of what was believed to be Guillain-Barré syndrome, which affects the nervous and immune systems. He last played for the Ducks on Feb. 4.

      "I won't say he's retiring, but he's out for the year," general manager Bob Murray said. "Whatever you want to call what he had keeps resurfacing. He's tried a couple times to come back, but he and his wife have decided that's enough for now, and I totally agree with that at this point in time."

      Eaves' $3.15 million cap hit will come off the books after this season, but Kesler's contract has $6.875 million remaining through the 2021-22 season.

      "We're pleased to have Ivan locked up for the next six years," Flyers general manager Chuck Fletcher said. "Over the course of his young career, he has developed into one of the top young defensemen in the NHL. His commitment to the game and his teammates is second to none. He will be an important part of our success for years to come."

      Provorov has collected 97 points (30 goals, 67 assists) in 246 regular-season games since being selected by Philadelphia with the seventh overall pick of the 2015 NHL Draft.

  • Knights' D Theodore reveals testicular cancer treatment
    By Field Level Media / Thursday, September 12, 2019

    Vegas Golden Knights defender Shea Theodore revealed Thursday that he was treated for testicular cancer this summer.

    • In a first-person article posted by the Players Tribune, Theodore said that cancer was detected after an irregular drug test at the world hockey championships, at which he won a silver medal with Team Canada.

      He said the failed test detected an elevated level of the hormone hCG, which was not from a foreign substance, but instead the initial clue in an eventual diagnosis of Stage I testicular cancer. He had surgery and has "made a full recovery," he said.

      "If I had not taken that test, and then if the cancer had gone undetected for a few more years ... I don't even want to think about how differently my life could've turned out," Theodore, 24, wrote. "Whether or not you believe everything happens for a reason, what happened to me really feels like a miracle.

      "Currently, I've made a full recovery and of course I'll be followed closely for any signs of recurrent disease by my surgeon.

      Theodore was selected by the Knights before the 2017-18 season from the Anaheim Ducks roster. He played in 79 games and tallied 37 points (12 goals, 25 assists).

    By Field Level Media / Wednesday, September 11, 2019

    Boston Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy signed a multi-year contract extension on Wednesday.

    • Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed for the 54-year-old Cassidy, who guided the Bruins to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final last season. The St. Louis Blues posted a 4-1 win in that contest to capture their first Stanley Cup title in franchise history.

    By Field Level Media / Monday, September 9, 2019

    Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin said Monday that defenseman Andrei Markov will not return to the Montreal this season after a two-season sojourn in the Kontinental Hockey League.

    • Markov, 40, left the Canadiens after the 2016-17 campaign and signed with Ak Bars Kazan. He had spent his previous 16 NHL seasons with Montreal (he spent the 2004-05 lockout playing in Russia with Dynamo Moscow of the Russian Superleague), and the Canadiens are the only NHL team with which he has ever played.

      "We have some young kids pushing and as far as where Andrei was two years ago, where our team was two years ago, things have changed," Bergevin said at the Canadiens annual golf tournament. "And now we're going, you know I call it a reset, refresh, and we did that, and now we're going to keep in that direction."

      In August, Markov said he wanted to return to the franchise for what would likely be his final professional season. He has been practicing in Florida.

      In 990 NHL games, Markov had 119 goals and 453 assists. With Kazan last season, he had two goals and 12 assists in 49 games.

    • The Boston Bruins captain was injured in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final when he was hit in the face by a deflected puck. He played in Game 5 despite the injury.

      "I'm not sure," Charo told The Boston Globe on Friday when asked if he'd be on the ice when the Bruins start the season on Oct. 3 in Dallas.

      "I think I should be, but it's a process of making sure there are no setbacks or any discomfort."

      After the season, he underwent surgery to remove loose bodies in his elbow. Plates and screws were inserted in his jaw.
