Four Olympic medalists, including two players and two coaches who played an integral role in establishing the sport of hockey in the United States on several fronts, will headline this year's inductees into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame.

"The class of 2014 is an extraordinary collection of individuals that have had an immensely positive impact on hockey in our country," president of USA Hockey Ron DeGregorio said. "Cumulatively, they have been involved at every level of hockey and this group is a big reason why our sport has advanced to the point it has in the United States."

Michael Langr - NHL.com Correspondent

Three years after the tragic crash of a plane carrying the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl hockey team, which led to death of 44 passengers, one of the victims will be honored with a documentary film.

The film, "Pavol Demitra: 38," will premiere in Trencin, Slovakia on Sept. 7, the three-year anniversary of the crash. Four days later, it will be shown in movie theaters across the country.

Demitra, who played in the NHL from 1993-2010, was a Slovak hockey legend and one of the biggest stars in the Kontinental Hockey League.

The film was produced by actor and director Daniel Dangl, who is famous for his work as producer of a stand-up comedy called "Particka." The show is similar to the American sketch comedy "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" and is a hit in Slovakia and Czech Republic.

Subban, Canadiens agree to terms on 8-year contract

Sunday, 08.03.2014 / 2:08 AM / News

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor LNH.com

In the end, defenseman P.K. Subban and the Montreal Canadiens each got what they wanted.

They just did it the hard way.

P.K. Subban
Defense - MTL
GOALS: 10 | ASST: 43 | PTS: 53
SOG: 204 | +/-: -4
Subban and the Canadiens agreed to terms on an eight-year contract reportedly worth $72 million one day after an arbitration hearing between the sides had Montreal fans in a panic for about 24 hours that the team's top defenseman might eventually leave town.

The arbitrator's ruling on how much Subban would be awarded on a one-year contract was due Sunday, but the sides got back together Saturday to make sure it didn't come to that.

"It's not easy to negotiate an eight-year deal like this, and ultimately that's what both sides have wanted," Subban said. "[Friday], going through the arbitration hearing, it's a part of the process and it's a part of learning and it's a part of the game and it's a part of the [collective bargaining agreement]. So we followed every step in terms of the process, and that was a part of it. I've always felt strong about being a Montreal Canadien and I never thought I would wind up anywhere else."

Bishop signs two-year extension with Lightning

Saturday, 08.02.2014 / 10:35 PM / News

NHL.com

Goaltender Ben Bishop has signed a two-year contract extension with the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team announced Saturday.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but it is worth $5.95 million per season, according to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com.

Bishop could have become an unrestricted free agent in July 2015 but is now signed through the 2016-17 NHL season.

"I didn't want to head into training camp and then maybe play half a season [without having a new contract] in the back of my mind, because as much as you like to say that it's not a distraction, it usually is," Bishop told The Tampa Tribune. "So it was nice to get this over with, I think it's a fair deal for both sides, and I'm really excited to be a part of this organization for another three years."
