The NHL announced Sunday that cross-border games will be postponed through the holiday break because of COVID-19 concerns.

The decision was made due to the concern about cross-border travel and "the fluid nature of federal travel restrictions."

Despite the increasing number of positive test results for COVID-19, the NHL also announced that it would continue to play the 2021-22 season.

Brett Connolly will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety on Sunday.

The Chicago Blackhawks forward is facing discipline for interference against Dallas Stars forward Tanner Kero.

The incident occurred at 3:02 of the first period in Dallas' 4-3 overtime win at home Saturday. Connolly was a assessed a five-minute major penalty for interference and a game misconduct on the play. Kero left the game on a stretcher, was taken to the hospital for precautionary measures and evaluation, and did not return.

 

 

Suspended 4 games.

Deservedly so! Basically Brett Connolly blind-sided Tanner Kero. Doesn't matter, that he stopped skating.  He still had some speed going into the hit.

Yeah, but if he hit him in the head he could have had the suspension reduced by 2 games as Bettman did for Spezza.

The NHL makes it all but official their Olympic break is cancelled.  The league will be “paused” starting tonight, and is reportedly booking venues to make up games during what would have been the Olympic break. 

The NHL is reportedly making some big schedule changes in the immediate future. Aside from two scheduled games tonight, the league as a whole will shut down until December 26th (for player testing only), with games resuming Tuesday the 27th.


This is not official from the NHL yet, however the breadth across the hockey media which this story broke yesterday evening, with all of ESPN, TSN, and Sportsnet quoting sources who all said the same thing, makes it sound like the news has already been disseminated out to at least the GM level of every team.

I'm sure Quebec ( and probably Hamilton) will be used as bargaining chips to get better deals. I've seen enough of it in my area to know it's all BS. If the Yotes can survive more then a decade in the desert with questionable financing and constantly on the verge of bankruptcy,,, that it will take a lot more then this latest glitch in Calgary to see them relocated.

24 year old Zach S. was fairly prolific in junior and has some size. Gorton wasn't with the Bruins then but would have some familiarity with scouts in the area. Wonder if he is worth taking a flyer on as an RFA (3rd or 4th round draft pick), but seems to me we have some reasonable depth on RW. Trading within the division is rare.

The NHL will emerge from an extended holiday break with taxi squads and other roster revisions to guard against more disruptions to the season.  Each team will be allowed to have a taxi squad of up to six players and to make emergency recalls from the minors if COVID-19 absences would cause anyone to play without a full lineup. Taxi squads, which were used during the shortened 2021 season, are set to be in effect until at least the All-Star break in early February.

Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly confirmed the new roster rules in an email to The Associated Press on Sunday. They were first reported by Sportsnet.

Under the new provisions, any team shy of having 12 forwards, six defencemen and two goaltenders available can bring up a player from the American Hockey League without playing a game with fewer than the usual 18 skaters. Emergency recalls also can be made of players with salary-cap hits of up to $1 million, an increase from the previous $850,000 limit.

Brandon Tanev is out for the rest of the season for the Seattle Kraken with an ACL injury.

The forward left in the third period of a 5-3 home loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Dec. 18, Seattle's last game before having four postponed because of COVID-19 concerns. The Kraken said additional information on his surgery and recovery will be released when available.

Looks like the NHL is already postponing games for Wednesday, December 29th. Even the 31st. Wonder if this will eventually include TB/Habs? What is their criteria, when it comes to postponing games?  5, 6, 7, 8 - players out?   They should probably make some kind of official announcement, as to what they feel is reasonable cause.

NHL.com.  Florida center Aleksander Barkov is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers.  According to coach Andrew Brunette, he has looked in practice and a decision will made after practice tomorrow.  Forward Mason Marchment may also return from a lower body injury.

The Syracuse Crunch have signed veteran defenseman Jason Garrison to a professional tryout contract, giving him a chance to play professional hockey for the first time in almost two years. Garrison, 37 yo. last played for Djurgardens IF during the 2019-20 season. Haven't heard that name in a while.

The Vancouver Canucks have added three people to COVID-19 protocols hours before their first game back from the extended Christmas break.

Forwards Brock Boeser and Phillip Di Giuseppe, and an unnamed support staff member, entered protocols Wednesday. Just got tougher to keep their winning streak going.
