"We are pleased to have reached a new agreement with our officials," NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said. "We look forward to working closely will our officials to ensure that the quality of our game continues to be the best that it can be."

"NHL officials are the best in the world and will continue to bring their dedication to ensuring a quality on-ice product," said Harry Radomski, Executive Director of the NHLOA. "These negotiations have been reflective of the relationship between the NHLOA and NHL which is characterized by a mutual desire for what is best for the game."
Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
