What You May Have Missed in Hockey...

Tidbits & happenings from around the hockey world.

The Buffalo Sabres finally return to action tomorrow, after what feels like forever - and it certainly won’t be an easy week ahead, as they start with games against the Tampa Bay Lightning and Nashville Predators.

It’s been a few days since Buffalo hit the ice for a game, but until tomorrow’s puck drop, here’s what you may have missed in the hockey world over the last few days:

Let’s start off with this new video from the Hockey Diversity Alliance. (Note: language.)

Kane in Trouble... Again

Our old friend Evander Kane is currently looking for his next landing place, after the San Jose Sharks placed him on waivers with the intent to terminate his contract. He cleared waivers, and now the NHLPA is expected to file a grievance for the termination.

Reports indicate that Kane broke COVID protocol by traveling to Vancouver while he was COVID-positive, which is what prompted the Sharks organization to terminate his contract.

If it’s not one thing, it’s another for him.

Tidbits from Sabres Practices

  • Robert Hagg, who had been out with injury, and Jacob Bryson, who was in COVID protocol, returned to practice for the Sabres. Anders Bjork has also returned to practice.
  • Based on what Don Granato said over the weekend, Bryson is likely to play Tuesday, while Hagg is TBD. As Granato said, it’s hard to make roster decisions too far before a game, because at this point, you don’t even know which players will be available.
  • Alex Tuch, Peyton Krebs, Kyle Okposo and Casey Fitzgerald remained in COVID protocol as of Sunday night.
  • On Monday morning, the Sabres announced that they have recalled Jack Quinn to the NHL taxi squad. Quinn recently returned to the lineup for the AHL’s Rochester Americans, and he wasted no time getting right back into the swing of things. He recorded a goal & an assist. The Amerks split the weekend, with a 5-2 win against Hartford and a 3-1 loss to Syracuse.

Other Notes

  • Let’s all take a moment to pay respects to Teddy Balkind, the 10th-grader from Connecticut who died after sustaining an injury during a hockey game.
  • Teams in the ECHL have made some interesting signings lately as they attempt to fill their rosters. Among the latest additions: Trevor Daley, who signed with the Florida Everblades.
  • Oh, and Devon Levi? Sabres goaltending prospect? Yeah... he’s pretty dang good. Levi leads the NCAA in shutouts. More to come on him soon, so stay tuned.

I beg to differ, without exception' whenever I see the word diversity, shitty results and stupid decisions are sure to follow. Kim Pegula thrives on that stupidity. Don't be surprised when we get a female coach here.

has sweet fuck all to do with diversity.  Terry got lucky and stuck some tubes in the ground that made him billions.  He met a female in rural nowheresville along the way who was happy to suck his dick in in return for having his balls in a vice.   Terry happily complied.  fast forward to now where we live in a world where the beloved Sabres are in the clutches of a despicable idiot.  results reflect who's in charge.
