There is little interest among NHL executives to send players to the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said the issue was not even on the Board of Governors’ agenda when they met Saturday in Los Angeles, where the league’s All-Star festivities are being held.
The issue of the Olympics got about 10 seconds of discussion, Bettman said.
It wasn’t clear what motivated Day to storm out of the penalty box. He was assessed a 10-minute match penalty for abusing an official.
At that point, officials decided to end the game.
In a statement, Mark Krug, the NJCAA’s assistant executive director, said the organization is aware of the incident and will take all necessary steps to gather as much information from tournament officials and local authorities regarding violations to the association’s sportsmanship code. This type of behavior will not be tolerated in the NJCAA.
Bottineau won its 10th consecutive national title.
The NJCAA hockey championship will cease to exist next year due to a lack of teams.
Well that was borderline treasonous, and a disgrace to our nation and its proud and storied history. My father didn’t kick the Nazis’… and the puck drops!
Another archetype for sports movies is the zany announcer. Halifax Highlanders announcer Rod McCaudry ranks up there with the best of them.
And in the same vein, Kunin said he sees Granato as a logical fit for the job, one that will involve more teaching and guidance than in a conventional Olympic year.
I don’t think there’s anyone that deserves it more than him, Kunin said. He’s a competitor and he’s a worker and he expects results with his group and with himself. I see no difference going into picking this team of Olympic guys, and you can expect guys that are going to want to win, and are going to win. That’s going to be his mindset.
