The Detroit Red Wings and Grand Rapids coach Jeff Blashill agreed to a three-year contract, which will run through the 2016-17 season, the NHL team announced Wednesday.

Blashill had one year left on his contract. Detroit general manager Ken Holland said he denied permission to NHL teams to speak to the 40-year-old about coaching vacancies, the Red Wings website reported.

"He's a very important person in our organization because we are in the process of trying to transition to some of the younger players that we have," Holland said. "... We are thrilled with the job that he has done from a competitive standpoint, from a development standpoint. ...

"I think his feeling is that he can use another year or two, certainly one more year, to continue developing as a coach, and we'll see what happens next summer."

Carcillo's suspension revised to six games

Tuesday, 06.03.2014 / 11:53 AM / News


NEW YORK -- National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman today ruled that the suspension to New York Rangers forward Daniel Carcillo will be revised to six (6) games for his actions in violation of Rule 40.4 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final in New York on May 22.

Carcillo had originally been assessed a suspension under Rule 40.3 for deliberately applying physical force to an official. A violation of that particular Rule requires a minimum suspension of "not less than ten (10) games."

After considering Carcillo's appeal during a hearing at the NHL's New York office on Friday, May 30, the Commissioner ruled that Carcillo's actions were more appropriately deemed a violation of Rule 40.4 for deliberately applying "physical force to an official for the sole purpose of getting free of such official during or immediately following an altercation." The Commissioner determined that as appropriately re-classified under Rule 40.4, and under the totality of the circumstances, a suspension of six (6) games was the proper penalty.


Canadiens GM Bergevin faces tough decisions

Monday, 06.02.2014 / 6:27 PM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

BROSSARD, Quebec – Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin did not want to get into specifics Monday in regards to his plans for the team's impending unrestricted and restricted free agents.

But something he said about the transition period the Canadiens find themselves in may have provided a big hint as to what Bergevin has in mind for this summer.

"Eventually with teams, a change happens," Bergevin said. "I'm not saying we're disappointed with our veterans, but it's nice to see that your young veterans are taking an important role in the leadership of the team."

Bergevin addressed the media Monday to assess the Canadiens' season, one in which they finished third in the Atlantic Division with 100 points and surprised many by reaching the Eastern Conference Final before being eliminated in six games by the New York Rangers on Thursday.
