Reports: Arbitrator rules in NHL's favor
According to multiple reports, arbitrator Richard Bloch denied the NHL Players' Association's grievance over the NHL ruling Ilya Kovalchuk's contract with the New Jersey Devils null and void because it circumvented the salary cap, returning Kovalchuk to unrestricted free-agent status.




Quote of the Day

I have been blessed to play for 16 years in the NHL; it has been an amazing ride. I would like to thank the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers organizations and owners for providing me the opportunity to play the sport I love for so many years. I could have never played for so long or accomplished all that I have without the unwavering love and support from my wife, Heather, our three sons, Ryan, Lucas, and Mason, and my parents.

— Martin St. Louis after announcing his retirement from the NHL on Thursday
