The Arizona Coyotes may have found a new home.  No, this is not a recording.  According to PHNX Sports' Craig Morgan, the Coyotes are reportedly in advanced talks with Arizona State University to use the school's new multi-purpose arena as their temporary home for the next three to four years while the organization searches for permanent lodging. 

5000 seat arena? I sure wouldn't be happy having to share my revenue with them. Time for the league to move the team.

There was an extensive investigation done by an outside firm. Not just the NHL head office. And the firm had to go through all of the details to fully determine that Evander Kane did not knowingly breach NHL COVID protocol. Now, the Edmonton Oilers would suggest that they knew as early as this past weekend that there was not going to be any additional discipline thrown Kane’s way and Evander Kane’s camp would say something similar. But what we now know is that he will soon join the Edmonton Oilers as he’s agreed to a contract for the remainder of this year that will pay him roughly $1 million. He’ll get $625,000 in a signing bonus and half of his $750,000 salary based on the remainder of the time left in the NHL regular season. And the deal includes a full no-move clause. So, Evander Kane is an Oiler.

A feel good story. 

With a depleted lineup to match the 50-per-cent seating capacity limit at Rogers Arena, the Vancouver Canucks conjured one of their most surprising performances yet under newish coach Bruce Boudreau.  They lost.  But they took a point from the powerful Florida Panthers despite missing five key players in COVID-19 protocol and giving goalie Spencer Martin his first National Hockey League start in five years.

The 26-year-old journeyman, elevated from minor-league goalie to NHL starter by positive COVID tests to Canuck star Thatcher Demko and backup Jaroslav Halak, stopped 33 of 34 shots Friday against the league’s highest-scoring team before losing 2-1 in a shootout in Vancouver’s first home game since Dec. 14.

Still a feel good story.....

Seven days ago, the 26-year-old minor-league goalie, fifth on the Vancouver Canucks’ organizational depth chart when this season began, hadn’t started a National Hockey League game in five years.

Thursday against the Winnipeg Jets, he stopped 33 of 34 shots in his third game in seven nights and picked up his first NHL win in a 5-1 Vancouver victory driven by Miller’s hat trick.

Nine years since the Colorado Avalanche drafted him in the third round, Spencer Martin is a winning goalie in the NHL.

“It’s incredibly special,” Martin told reporters on Zoom after hiking his three-game save percentage to .958. “Having it go well and get a win, I don’t know if it has sunk in yet. But hopefully just keep building off of it. It’s a really special day for me.”

The initial diagnosis for Colorado Avalanche star Nathan MacKinnon, who was bloodied on a hit Wednesday, is a broken nose, sources told ESPN's Emily Kaplan.  MacKinnon is still being evaluated, and the team should have a better sense by the weekend of how long he will be out, Kaplan reports.

MacKinnon left the ice in the first period of Wednesday night's game against the visiting Boston Bruins and did not return.  The hit caused MacKinnon's own stick to snap back into his face. Blood gushed from his nose to the ice as MacKinnon lay facedown.

A little clarity.

The play Batherson was injured on happened in the first period against Buffalo. After Sabres goaltender Aaron Dell settled the puck behind the net for defenceman Jake McCabe to pick up, the netminder shielded McCabe as Batherson came chasing around the net. Dell then proceeded to elbow Batherson, sending him awkwardly feet first into the boards.  Batherson stayed on the ice in visible distress before leaving to go to the dressing room.

“Drake looks like he’s gonna be [out] a lot longer,” Smith said. “Kid has a chance to go to his first All-Star game, it’s a bad play by the goalie. He’s done it before. We’ve seen all the replays. Any other player in the game that does that, you know, you have to go out and face the music. Certainly the league will look at whatever. But it’s a bad play.”

Ottawa Senators coach DJ Smith said that forward Drake Batherson will be out for two months with a high ankle sprain. Yeah. Those types of injuries can take forever to heal. And then you're never too sure.

Evander Kane rips Canadian radio host for 'disgusting' comment about daughter

Kane's  loser. Can't even take constructive criticism.  Nothing in that statement was disgusting.  Can't reporters find anyone else more interesting to talk to?

Colorado Avalanche forward Nathan MacKinnon will miss the next three games after suffering a facial fracture and a concussion earlier this week, coach Jared Bednar said Friday. It is unclear if MacKinnon, who was named captain of the Central Division All-Star team, will participate in the event next week.

Sergei Zubov had his number retired by the Dallas Stars at American Airlines Center on Friday.  "I will forever be proud to call myself a Dallas Star," Zubov said before his No. 56 was raised to the rafters prior to a 5-0 loss to the Washington Capitals.

Zubov played his final 12 NHL seasons (1996-2009) with the Stars, helping them win their first Stanley Cup championship in 1999. He is the Stars/Minnesota North Stars leader among defensemen in games played (839), goals (111), assists (438), points (549), rating (plus-103), power-play goals (60) and shots on goal (1,694). He is tied with current Stars player John Klingberg for most game-winning goals (20) by a Dallas defenseman. Among all Stars/North Stars, Zubov is third in assists, fifth in games played and seventh in points.
