On Scouting the Ottawa Senators and Detroit Red Wings game …
Bruce Garrioch: There were 22 scouts from 20 teams listed to attend the Senators-Red Wings game. There are 11 other games tonight … It seems like something is brewing.
On the Colorado Avalanche …
On the Vegas Golden Knights …
If the Golden Knights agree to terminate his contract, they would place him on unconditional waivers for 24 hours.
If a team claimed Shipachyov, that team would take on the two-year, $9 million contract, but Vegas would be on the hook for his $2 million signing bonus that he already received. GM George McPhee hopes to get a guarantee that no team would claim him.
If Shipachyov has his contract terminated, he would have to pay all the signing bonus back, except for a pro-rated $86,000.
Steve Carp: McPhee said there is nothing new to report with regards to Vadim Shipachyov. He’s still suspended without pay and McPhee doesn’t know what the resolution will be.
Steve Carp: GM George McPhee said there would be no trade for a goaltender: “We’ll ride it out with who we have.”
Jared Clinton of The Hockey News: Looking at five goaltenders that the Golden Knights could look at.
Michael Hutchinson – Winnipeg Jets – $1.15 million and wouldn’t cost much.
Jared Coreau – Detroit Red Wings
Michael Leighton – Tampa Bay Lightning
Jeff Zatkoff – Los Angeles Kings
