Ted Saskin has been officially approved as executive director of the NHL players' association. But the Kings never voted, which led to some confusion and frustration Friday. "Well, that's a joke," forward Sean Avery said when informed of the announcement. "If that's a vote, it's not a thorough vote, because the L.A. Kings didn't vote," Jeremy Roenick said. A news release from the NHLPA said that "a majority of the eligible votes" had been received and that 85 percent of the votes received were in favor of Saskin's election. But the union acknowledged that not all player representatives turned in votes. The Kings' Mattias Norstrom did not submit a vote on behalf of the Kings, and although the union will continue to accept votes until Dec. 16, Norstrom said the Kings do not intend to vote any time soon. Instead, the Kings are following a lawsuit filed with the U.S. National Labor Relations Board on behalf of a group led by former Kings forward Trent Klatt, which seeks to have the election deemed illegal.
