NEW YORK -- National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman today reinstated Henry Samueli as owner of the Anaheim Ducks. Samueli had been suspended indefinitely from any involvement with the Ducks and the NHL on June 24, 2008.
Mrs. Susan Samueli also returned to active status as co-owner of the Ducks. In support of her husband, and to avoid any possible improper appearance, she had abided by the terms of Henry Samueli's suspension.
"We welcome Henry and Susan Samueli back as fully reinstated owners and members of the NHL community," Commissioner Bettman said.
I don't know the room very well yet. I don't know how we're going to react in certain situations. We've had a couple of minor tests throughout the [preseason] ... We'll get to know each other as the year goes on. We'll figure it out.
