Nichol Gets 9 Games

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Nashville Predators forward Scott Nichol has been suspended for nine games, without pay, for a blind-side punch to the head of Buffalo Sabres defenseman Jaroslav Spacek during NHL Game #512 at Nashville, Dec. 21.
Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, and based on his average annual salary, Nichol forfeits $25,267.41. The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
The incident occurred at 15:21 of the third period. Nichol was assessed a minor penalty for instigating, a major for fighting, a 10-minute misconduct and a game misconduct as the aggressor (Rule 47.2). The suspension was issued following a hearing conducted via conference call by NHL Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell.
“The punch by Mr. Nichol was deliberate, from behind, and it occurred after the referee’s whistle had stopped play,” Campbell said. “While Mr. Spacek was injured and left the ice, it is expected he will be available to play in Buffalo’s next game.”

NHL Library Grows

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

NEW YORK (Dec. 22, 2006)—The National Hockey League (NHL) today announced that it has completed a deal to purchase Molson’s extensive hockey footage collection, which spans over the last 80 years in the NHL. Some of the footage includes Wayne Gretzky’s 1000th career point, Maurice “Rocket” Richard’s final goal and Bobby Baun’s overtime winner scored on a broken foot. The NHL Hockey Archive is now the largest individual collection of hockey footage in the world.

“This new acquisition will allow us to recreate for our fans some of the most amazing moments in the NHL’s history,” says Patti Fallick, Group Vice President Media, Operations and Planning. “This will be a digital boom of historical content for fans accessing NHL content across our many platforms.”

NHL Considering Changes

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bob McKenzie at TSN,

The NHL has been trying for weeks to tinker with its schedule configuration, but is now considering a significant overhaul of the face of the league that includes realignment and a reduction in the number of divisions from six to four.
Nothing is carved in stone at this point, but the NHL is floating an aggressive trial balloon to its governors for consideration. Earlier this week, six club executives, (a mix of governors, teams presidents and GMs), representing the six current divisions met in New York with NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and brainstormed to produce a new-look alignment and schedule that they’re taking back to other clubs in their respective divisions for feedback.

More Testing For Forsberg

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Philadelphia Flyers,

Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren on Thursday updated the status of center Peter Forsberg. Forsberg suffered a slight concussion last Saturday during a game in Washington against the Capitals.
Paul Holmgren: “Peter did skate today for about 15 minutes. Actually, he didn’t feel very good. He is going to see Dr. Gerri McGuinnes tomorrow morning and have his baseline testing done and then he is going to see Dr. Gary Dorshimer after that. We will see how he feels tomorrow. I think the fact he lasted only 15 minutes today, that’s probably not ideal. We will see how it goes tomorrow. I would say the chances of him playing on Saturday are not very good.”

Gretzky Thoughts On “Rory” Vote

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via the Arizona Republic, Coyotes coach Wayne Gretzky said Thursday he thinks the NHL should intervene in the “Vote for Rory” phenomenon to make sure the players who most deserve to play in next month’s All-Star Game in Dallas are included.
“I’m not trying to be controversial,” Gretzky said. “Maybe he deserves to be in the game. I can’t stand here and tell you that he doesn’t deserve to be in the game because I’ve never seen him play. But if he thinks he deserves to be in the All-Star Game, then good for him, he should go. If he doesn’t believe he should be in the All-Star Game, he should stand up and say, ‘You know what, there’s other guys that deserve to be there.’ That’s kind of what my take on it is.”
