Summer is one of the worst times to be a hockey fan. Nothing really going on. No games. It’s just a two month break from the game on the ice that we hold so close to our hearts. Luckily, our daily NHL News series continues, so no need to worry.
- NHL Regular Season Schedules expected to be announced today.
-FINALLY! Today is the day that team schedules are “expected” to be announced. Pending the NHL’s participation in the 2014 Olympics. They are waiting for a decision on that first before schedules are released. Please hurry up.
- Blue Jacket newcomer Nathan Horton sidelined 4-6 months due to shoulder surgery. He sustained the injury during the 2013 Stanley Cup Final.
-This is a huge blow to the Blue Jackets. Horton is a great forward with tons of potential but this really puts a damper on things. 4 months takes him into November, and six months takes him into early 2014. So he is going to miss a big chunk of the beginning of the season. Plus, shoulder surgery is not easy to come back from.
- The Pittsburgh Penguins have resigned forward Dustin Jeffrey to a one-year, $625,000 contract.
-Jeffrey had three goals and three assists in 25 regular season games for the Pens in 2012-2013.
