It hasn’t even been a month since Gabriel Landeskog had his cartilage transplant surgery, but a new report no NBA player Lonzo Ball has sparked new concern over the Captain’s long-term health.

Part two of the Nikolai Kovalenko film room shows off his work ethic, and if you are reminded of Artturi Lehkonen, you aren’t alone.

There were multiple former Avalanche players hired to open coaching positions on Tuesday. Is Alex Tanguay next?

The Avalanche did do a little bit of business, re-signing defenseman Nate Clurman to a one-year deal.

There are reports out there that Darren Helm is leaning towards retirement, but nothing is official. We’ve all been expecting that news for a while, as it was a tough year for him. If/when it does become official, we’ll have more info on it.

Everyone figured it was coming, but it appears Brad Treliving will be the next general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Nashville Predators made a big move, firing John Hynes and replacing him with Andrew Brunette.

PGHN: Lots of rumors swirling around Kyle Dubas and the Penguins, but former front office member Brian Burke didn’t like how Dubas handled things at the end with Toronto. It’s an interesting take. Shouldn’t someone be allowed to ask for more money if their contract is up?

FHN: The Florida Panthers have a new postseason ritual, and it includes a dog bone. Yes, a dog bone.

VHN: Pete DeBoer wants to see quite a few Golden Knights players win.

DHN: Steve Yzerman has some cap space to make some noise this summer. He did a lot last summer, but it didn’t pay off immediately.

LAHN: The Three Kings with the most to prove next year, including former second overall pick Quinton Byfield.
