Chairman Herb Fritch has agreed to sell the majority of his ownership stake to former Tennessee governor Bill Haslam.  Once necessary steps have been completed and approval within the organization and the league is secured, Haslam is expected to become minority owner in the next few months.  Through a series of multi-phased purchase transactions in the next few years, Haslam will become majority owner.

Backstrom's career is likely over - only two hockey players have ever had this type of surgery which does involve an implant and rips all the muscles around the femur head and socket. Jovanoski came back for a year and was done thereafter. Ryan Kessler had the surgery and never recovered sufficiently to play hockey. It is a form of hip replacement, and is a much longer recovery period. He will set off the metal detectors in the airports like a Christmas tree

Andy Murray of tennis had this type of surgery and came back to play some doubles but never returned to the singles power that he once was

He's what 34 or 35?  I would think its time to hang them up if thats the case.  Better to try to live as pain-free a life after hockey as possible at this point.
