Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

LOS ANGELES -- Tracey Kenney and Merry Cheers took a selfie standing in front of a barren plaza at L.A. Live, across from Staples Center. They were among hundreds of disappointed Kings fans pouring out of bars and restaurants at the sports and entertainment district Wednesday night.

"We just took a picture of ourselves with this emptiness in the back, showing how we feel in our heart," Cheers said. "An empty party zone reflects the emptiness in our hearts. This is a total 180 [degree turn] of how we were going to be right now. But we're rooting for it.

"We have hope knowing that they're going to bring it back home."

NEW YORK -- Nashville Predators general manager David Poile is doing his best to put to rest any rumors that he might be looking to trade captain Shea Weber, who is a Norris Trophy finalist this season.

NEW YORK -- Ottawa Senators captain Jason Spezza has asked to be traded, general manager Bryan Murray said Wednesday.

Murray, speaking after the NHL general managers meeting, said he will try to accommodate the request from the 30-year-old center.

"I don't want to trade the guy, really, and I know I won't get the value, in all likelihood, that I should get for him," Murray said. "But I think that Jason feels maybe there's a change that he would like to have happen, and if that's the case we'll try to do what we can."

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The NHL's general managers held their annual meeting during the Stanley Cup Final on Wednesday and granted their support to the recommendations made by the League's Competition Committee earlier this week, which include changes to the rules for overtime, faceoffs after icings, the configuration of the faceoff circles, increasing the size of the trapezoid behind the net and more stringent measures for embellishment offenses.

The recommendations still have to be approved by the NHL Board of Governors and the NHL Players Association Executive Board before becoming official. The Board of Governors meets in New York on June 26. The Executive Board meets July 16-19 in Pebble Beach, Calif.

The GMs first discussed these changes at their annual meetings in March.

Stars' Fiddler gets unique 'hat trick' at concert

Wednesday, 06.11.2014 / 4:32 PM / NHL Insider

Tal Pinchevsky - NHL.com Staff Writer

Dallas Stars forward Vernon Fiddler has a single three-goal game to his credit, scored on Nov. 12, 2010 as a member of the Phoenix Coyotes. But at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on June 7, the veteran center came away with a whole other kind of hat trick.

Attending the latest stop on country singer George Strait's "Cowboy Rides Away" tour, Fiddler was in the right place at the right time when the legendary musician flung his cowboy hat into the crowd as the concert ended. Fiddler barely had to move as the iconic piece of country memorabilia came right to him.

"At the end, he comes out for his encore and my buddy said, 'You're going to catch this hat, watch.' I looked at him and thought, 'What are you talking about?'" Fiddler told NHL.com. "[Strait] walked off the stage and it looked he wasn't going to even throw his hat. He came back on stage and said, 'I forgot. Somebody might want this.' He chucked it and it boomeranged around four or five rows away from me and then came back and landed right on my lap."
