Board of Governors approves sale of Islanders

Tuesday, 09.30.2014 / 6:32 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The sale of an escalating interest in the New York Islanders to Jonathan Ledecky and Scott Malkin was approved by the NHL's Board of Governors on Tuesday.

Under the terms of the sale agreement, Ledecky and Malkin are purchasing a minority interest in the Islanders from Charles Wang that will transition into a majority interest in two years. Wang will maintain his status as majority owner until the interest transfers.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman said the sale is not final because it needs to close, but the hope is that it will be completed before the start of the regular season next week.

"It's not going to happen tomorrow because there is some work to do, but I think they're probably shooting to get it done before the start of the season next week," Commissioner Bettman said. "If they miss it, that doesn't mean anything bad."

Johansen, Blue Jackets 'very civil' as talks resume

Tuesday, 09.30.2014 / 6:26 PM / News

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

NEW YORK -- The Columbus Blue Jackets resumed negotiations with restricted free agent center Ryan Johansen on Monday and they were "very polite, well mannered," Blue Jackets president of hockey operations John Davidson said Tuesday after the NHL Board of Governors meeting.

Davidson said negotiations were expected to resume Tuesday between the Blue Jackets and Johansen's agent, Kurt Overhardt, but Davidson did not have an update because he was in meetings here. Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekelainen and assistant general manager Bill Zito were handling the negotiations from Columbus' side.

Johansen is training near his home in Vancouver. The Blue Jackets open the season Oct. 9 at the Buffalo Sabres.

"We had some discussions yesterday that were very civil," Davidson said. "We had some good discussions, talked about things, and then they were to continue today. Jarmo and Bill Zito do that for us, and when I get back to Columbus we'll figure it out."
