Colorado Avalanche Could Have Interest In Henrik Lundqvist

from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post,

Jared Bednar expects goalie Philipp Grubauer to turn it around — just like he did last season. The Avalanche coach believes his No. 1 goalie to begin the season will bounce back from a mid-season funk and re-establish himself as a strength for a playoff-bound team.

But if that doesn’t happen, and the Avs aren’t convinced backup Pavel Francouz can carry the load, they might have a trade option in acquiring future Hall of Fame goalie Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers in a short-term marriage.

Lundqvist, 37, who has yet to hoist the Stanley Cup, is under contract through 2020-21, with an $8.5 million annual cap hit but just a $5.5 million salary next season. His contract would expire when Colorado begins paying big money to Gabe Landeskog and Cale Makar, whose current deals also end next season.

So You Want 3-on-3 Hockey All The Time?

from Etan Viessing of The Hollywood Reporter,

3ICE, to begin play in June 2021, is the latest TV sport to take on a faster, cut-down format to stay relevant in the digital age.
CBS Sports has picked up the U.S. TV rights to 3ICE, a three-on-three professional ice hockey league in North America set to launch in June 2021.

The new league, created by E.J. Johnston, son of former pro hockey goalie and coach Ed Johnston and NHL veteran Craig Patrick, will also air on Canada's TSN sports channel and its Quebec counterpart RDS. And the 3ICE championship game will air on the CBS TV network.

3ICE is the latest TV sport after football, cricket and Formula One to adopt a faster, cut-down format to remain relevant amid changing demographics in the digital age. Fewer players playing hockey tends to produce more open ice and goal scoring.

Ownership In The Spotlight In New Jersey

from Scott Burnside of The Athletic,

Unless you’re a true devotee of the New Jersey Devils or a devotee of the corporate machinery of professional sports teams, you could be excused for not knowing who Josh Harris was until the managing partner and chairman of the Devils stepped up to a microphone Sunday and announced the team fired GM Ray Shero.

That’s generally how owners like it. Out of the limelight unless they’re on hand for some celebratory event, like say the awarding of the Stanley Cup.

That’s not going to happen for the Devils anytime soon.

And now Harris and David Blitzer, who purchased the team in the summer of 2013, have emerged from the shadows in a most awkward fashion, making themselves a very big part of the story of a franchise that went in an instant from disappointing underachievers to curiosity.

That’s what happens when out of nowhere you fire a respected GM on a Sunday afternoon hours before a game in the middle of an already lost season.

NHL Short Notes


Jonathan Huberdeau passed Olli Jokinen for the most points in franchise history as the Panthers scored eight goals in a game for the first time since Oct. 26, 2017 (8-3 W vs. ANA).

* The red-hot Canucks continued their ascent of the Pacific Division standings, which features five teams within striking distance of first place.

* The Devils snapped an opponent’s double-digit win streak for the fourth time in franchise history – with one of those instances occurring in 1981-82 when the club was known as the Colorado Rockies.
