Numbers And Notes

from Christopher Botta of SportsBusiness Daily,

A look at the past week in the NHL and a glimpse at what’s ahead:

• The Numbers

28: The number of suspensions handed out by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety through preseason and regular-season games as of Dec. 19. The 25 suspensions cost the guilty a total of 121 games on the sidelines and more than $1.4 million in lost salary.

305: The ongoing home sellout streak of the Pittsburgh Penguins following last night’s win over Minnesota at Consol Energy Center.

$175,000: The estimated value of the resources and materials the NHL and the Detroit Red Wings Foundation, along with DTE Energy, Johnson Controls and York, funded in extensive upgrades and renovations to the outdoor rink at Clark Park in Detroit. The donation was as part of the 2014 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic legacy initiative. Clark Park’s rink received a new Zamboni and upgrades to its refrigeration and lighting systems, among other improvements.
