Wednesday, 09.16.2015 / 10:58 PM / News

One week after Tyler Johnson said he was not quite 100 percent, the Tampa Bay Lightning forward said on the eve of training camp that his injured right wrist is much better.

"Three weeks ago, I couldn't even shoot, and now I can do everything," Johnson told the Tampa Bay Times on Wednesday. "It's one of those things where you've just got to get strength back, but I'll be ready."

Johnson wore a brace on the wrist, which was fractured in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Chicago Blackhawks in June. The injury did not require surgery, and he went without the brace in mid-August.

Canadiens' Subban pledges $10 million to hospital

Wednesday, 09.16.2015 / 5:10 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

MONTREAL -- As P.K. Subban walked into the atrium of Montreal Children's Hospital for what would be the most important announcement of his life Wednesday, he looked up in the giant room he was entering and it hit him.

Up on the wall, in giant letters, were the words "Atrium P.K. Subban," a recognition of the $10 million donation Subban and his foundation were making to the hospital, but also a culmination of a life's work, in a sense.

Those words are visible from three floors of the new hospital, floors that were packed with staff gathered to watch Subban speak Wednesday, as well as from the sun-drenched room that welcomes patients and staff when they use the back entrance to the building.

The words are front and center, much like Subban often appears to be when he is playing defense for the Montreal Canadiens, and just like he was Wednesday in making the announcement of a donation the hospital called "the biggest philanthropic commitment by a sports figure in Canadian history."

3-on-3 OT format to get expanded preseason look

Wednesday, 09.16.2015 / 1:12 PM / News

NHL Public Relations

The National Hockey League has designated 45 games on its upcoming 2015 preseason schedule in which the participating teams will play a five-minute, sudden-death overtime period using the new '3-on-3' format -- regardless of the score at the end of regulation time. The overtime period will be played with each team at 3-on-3 manpower (plus goaltender).

This preseason mandate will provide all participants -- players, coaches, management and on-ice officials -- an expanded opportunity to test the new format in advance of its introduction to regular-season play when the 2015-16 NHL season opens on Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Preseason games tied at the end of regulation will use the same extra-time procedure as during the regular season -- a five-minute, sudden-death overtime period using the new 3-on-3 format, followed, if still tied, by a shootout.
