Tuesday, 12.09.2014 / 2:48 PM / News

NHL.com

Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry will miss 3-4 weeks with a knee sprain, the team announced Tuesday.

Perry was injured in the first period Friday against the Minnesota Wild when he was knocked into the boards along the right wall on a hip check by Minnesota defenseman Keith Ballard. Favoring his left leg, he needed assistance to leave the ice and immediately left the bench.

"The day after it was pretty stiff, but it's feeling better every day," Perry said in comments tweeted by the Ducks. "We're thankful it was only a sprain and not a tear."

Perry's 14 goals are sixth in the NHL. He has 22 points in 23 games.

Governors discuss Las Vegas ticket drive, salary cap

Monday, 12.08.2014 / 8:09 PM / News

Shawn Roarke - Director, Editorial

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- The NHL has no objection to a request made by potential expansion franchise owner Bill Foley to conduct a season-ticket drive to gauge interest in the Las Vegas market, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman said Monday at the Board of Governors meeting.

Bettman stressed that the governors' lack of objection in Foley conducting a season-ticket drive did not start the expansion clock on a franchise in Las Vegas. He also stressed that there was no formal vote on any matters related to expansion, including the season-ticket drive.

"What I'm about to tell you requires a deep breath and a level of precision that I am requesting because I don't want it misunderstood," Bettman said. "We gave the Board an update on expressions of interest from cities and people interested in expansion teams.

"There is no formal expansion process. There is no vote that was taken today. There is no vote that was contemplated. We don't have an agreement to sell anybody an expansion franchise. However, the interest that we are getting from Las Vegas has raised lots of questions about the market itself and the interest level in supporting a professional team in Las Vegas."

Bettman: Salary-cap projection for '15-16 around $73M

Monday, 12.08.2014 / 7:36 PM / News

Corey Masisak - NHL.com Staff Writer

BOCA RATON, Fla. -- NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman told representatives from the 30 teams Monday an initial projection for the salary cap during the 2015-16 season is about $73 million.

Speaking at the annual December meeting for the Board of Governors, Commissioner Bettman provided the League's early look at what the 2015-16 salary cap should be, contingent on a couple of key factors.

"I went over a series of projections, preliminary, preliminary projections," Bettman said. “Estimates that are not carved in stone, but our best guess based on the information available making lots of lots of assumptions on things like revenue growth in the year and perhaps, as significantly, what may happen with the Canadian dollar. Our best guess, and it's got some variation in it, that if the Canadian dollar stays where it is now for the rest of the season, which is about 88 cents, the cap for next season would be approximately $73 million.

"It's just a guess and it is subject to variation."

Senators fire MacLean, name Cameron coach

Monday, 12.08.2014 / 5:22 PM / News

Chris Stevenson - NHL.com Correspondent

OTTAWA -- Breakdowns, on the ice and off it, led to the firing of Paul MacLean as the coach of the Ottawa Senators on Monday, replaced by Dave Cameron.

Senators president of hockey operations and general manager Bryan Murray said consistent turnovers on the ice and a lack of communication between MacLean and the players led to the coach's dismissal.

MacLean, hired in the summer of 2011, was the winner of the 2013 Jack Adams Award as the NHL's coach of the year after leading the Senators to a 25-17-6 record. He leaves the Senators with a 114-90-35 record.

Cameron has been promoted from assistant coach. Murray said it is not on an interim basis. Cameron has two years remaining on his contract.

Murray said he and his staff, the coaches included, judged this season's Senators as a potential Stanley Cup Playoff team. They are 11-11-5 and sit four points out of the second wild-card position in the Eastern Conference.
