from Dan Carcillo of The Players' Tribune,
It was early Sunday afternoon, and I was taking off my shoes in our players’ lounge when I kept hearing my phone buzz. Someone was calling repeatedly. I immediately got an uneasy, sick feeling when I looked at the screen and saw who was calling. It was my close friend Missy. She was hysterical.
“Steve’s gone,” she said.
My best friend in hockey, Steve Montador, was found dead in his home at age 35. Steve was a 12-year NHL vet who battled addiction at certain points in his career before getting sober. Since he walked away from the game due to concussions in 2013, he was struggling to figure out what to do next. But I was still in complete shock and disbelief. For some reason, I started getting dressed for the pre-game skate. As a hockey player, you’re just taught to push through the pain, no matter what. I started putting on my skates when I glanced across the room and saw the stall Monty used to sit in when we played together. I heard his deep, hearty laugh.
added 2:41pm, video of Carcillo on Montador is below, also in the article.
Here is the video explanation...
via the NHL,
Chicago Blackhawks forward Daniel Carcillo will be offered an in-person hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety for cross-checking Winnipeg Jets forward Mathieu Perreault in a game Friday.
Carcillo was not penalized for the play that occurred near the end of the second period (he drew a penalty for cross-checking Jets forward Mark Scheifele afterward). Perreault did not play in the third period.
Winnipeg won 4-2.
The following grounds are being considered for supplemental discipline: cross-checking. However, the Department of Player Safety retains the right to make adjustments to the infraction upon review.
Missed the play, watch it here...
from Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun,
... fallout from Friday's game includes the loss of red-hot Jets forward Mathieu Perreault to an apparent arm injury after taking a vicious slash from Blackhawks winger Daniel Carcillo late in the second period.
Carcillo received a slashing minor, but the Jets didn't even get a power play, since Mark Scheifele was called for slashing.
“It was a vicious cross-check to an unsuspecting player,” said Jets head coach Paul Maurice, who said Perreault would be further evaluated on Saturday. “This was as big a character win as we've had since I've been here.”

“We’ll know more in the next day or so but he’s not playing (Sunday),” said Quenneville, referring to the Blackhawks’ game against the Ottawa Senators. “It could be a little bit more than (a week or two). I don’t think it’s that bad.”
Carcillo was added to the Blackhawks roster yesterday after being released from his PTO with Pittsburgh on Thursday.
via the Pittsburgh Penguins,
The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Daniel Carcillo to a professional tryout contract, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Carcillo, 29, originally broke into the professional ranks with the Penguins organization after being drafted by Pittsburgh in the third round (73rd overall) of the 2003 NHL Draft. He played two seasons with the Penguins’ American Hockey League affiliate, Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, from 2005-07, tallying 54 points (32G-22A) and 494 penalty minutes in 103 regular-season games.
The 6-foot, 200-pound Carcillo has played nine NHL seasons, beginning with the Arizona Coyotes in in 2006-07. Since then, he has gone on to suit up for the Philadelphia Flyers, Chicago Blackhawks, Los Angeles Kings and New York Rangers.
Because the New York Rangers haven't played since last Thursday, the New York Daily News's Peter Botte reminds us that Rangers defenseman John Moore will sit out Game 1 of the Rangers-Los Angeles Kings series on Wednesday:
John Moore still must sit out Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, the back end of a two-game suspension for an illegal hit that concussed Montreal's Dale Weise in the previous round. But the dependable defenseman is relieved that his Rangers teammates have ensured he will have a chance to play again this season.
"It's tough to watch no matter what time of year, but the guys gave me a chance to keep playing now," Moore said after practice Sunday in Greenburgh. "Obviously, if I could take it all back I would, but the biggest thing now is I hope Dale is OK and I've just got to get ready and hope for opportunity to come back here."
Moore, who was replaced by Raphael Diaz in the lineup for the Eastern clincher, added that it doesn't "really matter what I think" about the penalty imposed by the NHL.
"I respect the league's decision. I know they're trying to protect the players, but it certainly wasn't my intent to injure Dale on that play and I just hope he's OK," Moore said.

Update: Lest I forget, LoHud.com's Rick Carpiniello reminds us that Gary Bettman will rule on Daniel Carcillo's suspension appeal today, too:
via the NHLPA,
New York Rangers forward, Daniel Carcillo, has requested that NHL Commissioner, Gary Bettman, review the 10-game suspension imposed as a result of being assessed a Game Misconduct penalty under Rule 40.3 Physical Abuse of Officials -- Category II during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final in New York on Thursday, May 22, 2014.
As per, 40.5 of the NHL Rulebook (Automatic Suspension – Process), Carcillo had 72 hours following notification of the penalty, to request a review. An in-person appeal will be held with Gary Bettman. A date and time for a hearing has not been determined.
from Sean Fitz-Gerald of the National Post,
New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault has suggested that NHL linesman Scott Driscoll is partly to blame for inciting winger Dan Carcillo in a chaotic sequence of events during Thursday’s playoff game, a sequence that led to a 10-game suspension....
“My biggest disappointment in the whole thing is probably what’s happening to Dan Carcillo,” Vigneault told reporters on Saturday. “At the end of the day, if the right call is made on the ice, that whole situation doesn’t happen.”
Carcillo had been assessed a charging minor.
“I still don’t understand why Scott grabbed him in that fashion,” Vigneault said. “All Scott had to do was tell him — Dan didn’t know he had a penalty — ‘can you come to the box with me here? you’ve got a penalty.’”
TORONTO (May 23, 2014) – New York Rangers forward Daniel Carcillo has been automatically suspended for 10 games as a result of being assessed a Game Misconduct penalty under Rule 40.3 Physical Abuse of Officials -- Category II during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final in New York on Thursday, May 22, the National Hockey League announced today.
At 14:09 of the first period, Carcillo physically applied force to Linesman Scott Driscoll while being escorted to the penalty box. Rule 40.3 Physical Abuse of Officials -- Category II states: “Any player who deliberately applies physical force to an official in any manner (excluding actions as set out in Category I), which physical force is applied without intent to injure, or who spits on an official, shall be automatically suspended for not less than ten (10) games.”

Bob McKenzie tweets...
As @DarrenDreger said, NYR Dan Carcillo likely to be hit with Rule 40 abuse of official, calls for auto suspension of 3 or 10 or 20 games.
Betting is it's more likely to be 10 or 20 than 3 but formal notifice expected today. Rule 40 decisions made by on-ice officials post-game.
Watch the incident below, HNIC broadcast...
from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
Carcillo, inserted into the lineup at the expense of fresh-faced freshman Jesper Fast, who seemed out of his element through the opening two matches at the Garden. Carcillo, of course had been persona non grata around the Garden for years since whaling on Marian Gaborik right here in the Flyers’ building on Jan. 22, 2010 while wearing No. 13 for the home team.
But then Carcillo slipped into the Blueshirt this January after a trade with the Kings … and though Ranger fans might only have been lukewarm in receiving him, he could probably get a parade through Manhattan right now after his hard-edged effort last night that culminated with him scoring the match’s final goal.
The winger with previous anger-management issues played with admirable restraint for most of the night, taking one over-aggressive penalty that can be understood if not quite condoned.
Carcillo took an uncalled (and maybe unintentional?) forearm/elbow to the jaw from Matt Read early in the third that knocked him down, if not out, and wasn’t especially pleased about it. He cleared encroaching Flyers from Henrik Lundqvist’s crease, shoving them away. He added fiber to the diet.
No. 13 was a presence, and a constructive one, and when he returned to the bench with arms held high after he scored at 10:53 redirecting Boyle’s two-on-two feed past Ray Emery, he was greeted by front-row fans with upraised middle fingers signifying just how they considered him “No. 1” or something like that.

It’s not often we see a fight so up close but NBC had the camera in the right position today for a bout between Carcillo and Dowell.
from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers,
The Flyers will anxiously await word today, as they prepare for the Canadiens, about the status of forward Dan Carcillo.
Carcillo, who left Monday’s 5-1 win over Ottawa just a few minutes into the second period, will miss at least two weeks with what appears to be an MCL sprain.
But it could be worse.
The Flyers don’t know exactly what is wrong with Carcillo’s knee, as only so much can be determined without an MRI. He will have that MRI of done today in Philadelphia if there is not too much swelling to try and determine the exact extent of his injury.
from Cam Cole of the Vancouver Sun,
Don’t drop what you’re doing, because it’s not that important—just another disposable hockey player’s head, and what’s one more or less in the grand scheme of things?
But when you’ve got a minute, You-Tube the Daniel Carcillo hit on Ruslan Fedotenko from Thursday night’s Philly-Rangers game.
Turn the volume up, because you’re not going to want to miss the Philadelphia Comcast crew’s analysis of the Flyers’ Carcillo catching Fedotenko with his head down, leaving his feet, politely extending an elbow, and clocking the Ukrainian forward coming out of the Rangers’ zone.
“I don’t think that was a cheap shot,” says the colour man, that colour being primarily orange, with black and white trim. “Fedotenko’s falling, so Carcillo basically can’t control his body at that point, he’s coming in to take the body ... I know why the referee didn’t raise his arm. That was a good hit.”

from Chuck Gormley of Flyer Files,
“Do I have a problem with it? Sure, why wouldn’t I?” Tortorella said. “We get these (head shot) tapes sent to us during the summer and at the beginning of the year. Why send them? It’s a waste.”
Replays indicate Carcillo got his elbow up on Fedotenko, who was falling to the ice when contact was made.
“I saw him in the middle of the ice and the puck was there,” Carcillo said. “He kind of went down right when I got to him. My elbows were in. I know it looks bad, but I didn’t try to hit his head or anything.
“I don’t think anything (Tortorella) says is going to change anything. It is what it is. It’s not like I took strides toward him. I know they’re cracking down on that, so I imagine I’ll get a phone call.”
Ruslan Fedotenko was OK after staying on the ice for a bit. Not penalty to Carcillo.
The Philadelphia Flyers have signed 6’0’’, 205-pound left wing Dan Carcillo to a one-year contract, according to club General Manager Paul Holmgren. Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.
“We are happy to have Dan under contract for the 2010-11 season,” said Holmgren.
Too bad Dan Carcillo hit his own teammate, Jeff Carter.
Watch the CBC feed of the hit.
Don Cherry on the actions of Dan Carcillo.
“The one thing is that, for me, we’re up 2-0 in this series. We won two big home games. We’ve got to stay focused here and stay focused on our game and not be distracted by what’s being said. o me, it’s pretty obvious. The guy (Carcillo) yesterday, when you watch replays, everybody’s seen how he embellishes. So it’s hard to believe a guy when you see stuff that he does. We really don’t pay attention to that. We’re focused on staying the course here and doing our job and that’s the main thing.”

Last time I have been bit was in grade school. It is not a good feeling it is pretty cowardly.
-Dan Carcillo of the Philadelphia Flyers who claims Marc Savard of the Bruins bit him tonight during a scrum. More from Chuck Gormley of Flyer Files.
Watch Carcillo post-game as he talks about the incident.
added 12:35am 5/3/10, from James Murphy of NESN,
Savard gave his version of what may as well be known as BiteGate for the remainder of this series.
“He pummeled my face, pulled on my teeth, so I guess that’s biting when a guy tries to pull your teeth out like [he did],” Savard claimed. “I don’t know. I don’t see how that is biting. Yeah, I mean, he embellishes stuff. Obviously, under the pile, you try to pull out my front teeth, so if that’s a bite then I don’t know what to say.”
Earlier in the game, Carcillo, supposedly one of the toughest guys in the game, pretended to be hit in the face by Mike Mottau’s stick. Replays showed it wasn’t even close, even though Carcillo jerked his head back like he’d been bitten by a mamba. No penalty was called—indeed it was a rare moment the undisciplined Flyers weren’t whistled for an infraction Sunday as they took eight minors through the first two periods—which is perhaps the only reason the hockey gods, if they exist, allowed Carcillo his moment of joy 3:35 into the first overtime period.
Still, it’s the kind of play, especially for a tough guy, that is the hockey equivalent of knocking down an old lady for her purse.

Carcillo gets two game suspension for his unintentional high stick on Sunday against New Jersey.
TORONTO (March 30, 2010) – Philadelphia Flyers forward Daniel Carcillo has been suspended for two games, without pay, as a result of delivering a cross check to the head of New Jersey forward David Clarkson during NHL Game #1125, March 28, the National Hockey League announced today.
The incident took place at 15:14 of the third period and Carcillo was assessed a match penalty and game misconduct for attempt to injure.
Carcillo, who was suspended for four games on December 5, 2009, is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Accordingly, he forfeits $21,798.78 in salary, based on the number of games in the season (82), rather than the number of days (193). The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
Anton Volchenkov hit on Dan Carcillo tonight. Under the proposed new rules, is this a head shot?
I am going to say no because the hit was not on a “unsuspecting player”.
Watch the video, slow motion comes at the end.
via Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly,
Flyers forward Dan Carcillo will not be suspended for pushing off linesman Greg Devorski during an attempt to fight Boston’s Matt Hunwick’s during Thursday’s 5-1 loss to the Bruins.
Devorski tried to separate the two late in the two period when Carcillo struck him.
Ironically, the decision was left in left Devorski’s hands, and he cut the Flyers a break, CSNPhilly.com was told.
“I have spoken to Stephen Walkom about the play,” said Colin Campbell, the NHL’s Lord of Discipline in an e-mail to CSNPhilly.com.
“And IF Greg Devorski, who was the linesman with Carcillo, decided Carcillo needed discipline, they could apply three, 10 or 20 games themselves under Rule 41, Abuse of Officials. They decided not to and I am fine with their decision.”
from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,
“It was a bit unsportsmanlike,” defenceman Ian White said of Carcillo’s act. “He’s known a bit for that. But, hey, he scored a goal and got a fight.”
Carcillo had a simple explanation for his actions.
“I just looked at (Colton) Orr a bit,” the Flyers pugilist said. “He had been running around at us doing his thing. I tried fighting him on that shift. When it didn’t happen, I scored.”
Then came Carcillo’s post-goal antics, aimed at Orr.
“It doesn’t even deserve a comment,” Orr said.
While his players may have been angry at Carcillo, Wilson was more steamed at his own team.

Dan Carcillo was suspended for four games today by the NHL.
added 2:12pm, from Kevin Kurz of PhiladelphiaFlyers.com,
General manager Paul Holmgren issued the following statement on Sunday regarding the suspension:
“Decisions come down from the league…do I agree with them all? No. I certainly do not agree with this one. We do not have a lot of recourse in this situation. Dan will serve his suspension, and we will move on.”
How is this for a boxscore… Carcillo decides to act crazy on Matt Bradley of the Capitals.
So far the penalties have cost the Flyers 2 goals. Caps up 3-1.
