NEW YORK -- Following Wednesday's (Dec. 9) ruling in U.S. District Court, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman issued the following statement:

"On December 9, 2009, U.S. District Court Judge Cormac J. Carney vacated the single charge that was pending against Dr. Henry Samueli, indicating that no law had been violated. We are delighted that the Samueli good name has now been cleared. In retrospect, it is regrettable and unfortunate that the circumstances at that time caused the Samuelis and the Anaheim Ducks to endure any suspension. We were pleased to welcome the Samuelis back to the NHL when the suspension was lifted this past November 12."

Commissioner Bettman's statement comes after U.S. District Court proceedings this week in Santa Ana, California, where Judge Carney stated that Henry Samueli "had not, in fact, made a materially false statement during his testimony before the SEC and therefore committed no crime."
Quote of the Day

I would definitely love to play with him. He's a skilled player and over the years he definitely has shown that he can score a lot of goals. I think it would work out well.
