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

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.

— Florida Panthers director of player development Brian Skrudland on defenseman Aaron Ekblad's performance at development camp
