Spezza is now appealing.

The National Hockey League Players' Association has filed an appeal on behalf of Jason Spezza regarding the NHL’s decision to suspend him for six games.   Spezza was suspended six games by the NHL Department of Player Safety on Tuesday for hitting Jets defenceman Neal Pionk in the head with his knee in Winnipeg in a game Sunday night.  Spezza will forfeit $21,000 in pay while serving the ban. It's the first suspension of his 15-year career, spanning more than 1,200 games.  The initial appeal will go to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, and then to a neutral arbitrator if Spezza is not satisfied with his ruling.

It was reported by Katie Strang of The Athletic, that if the Arizona Coyotes team doesn’t pay money owed including back taxes by December 20th, the City of Glendale will lock the team out. The city has revoked the Arizona Coyotes business license due to unpaid taxes. That is causing the Arizona Coyotes financial issues to be quite immediate. 

The Arizona Coyotes have paid all bills and taxes owing to the city of Glendale and the state of Arizona, the team confirmed on Thursday, one day after it was reported they might be locked out of their building if they didn’t pay up.

As questions continue to arise over the participation of NHL athletes in the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China, one player has already decided to withdraw from the games for personal reasons.  Currently, NHL players are allowed to represent their countries in Beijing in February, but massive restrictions and concerns over COVID may result in a change in the coming weeks.  The NHLPA has until Jan. 10, 2022 to opt out of the Olympics, should they decide to do so.  But Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Robin Lehner has already decided not to participate due to health matters.  “Have to address I will not go to the Olympics,” Lehner tweeted Sunday night after the Knights’ 3-2 win over the Calgary Flames. “I’m very disappointed and it tough decision for me as it’s once in life time opportunity. Reality is that what have been said about how it’s going to be is not ideal for my mental health.”  Lehner, 30, has been very vocal about his battles with bipolar disorder and depression. With the strict restrictions put in place in Beijing for athletes, bowing out of the games appears to be the best decision for Lehner to make.

Just the messenger. We agree that it was vigilante justice?

Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice is fearing a long-term absence for captain Blake Wheeler after he suffered a lower-body injury on Friday against the Vancouver Canucks.  “It’s going to be a while,” Maurice said after a 4-3 shootout loss. “We’ll get him looked at tomorrow. I’m not a doctor, but it’s going to be a while.”  Wheeler was hurt in a collision with teammate Nathan Beaulieu and the Canucks’ Vasili Podkolzin in front of the Jets’ net. He immediately grabbed his knee and skated off the ice.
