Ben Bishop went back to the well and teamed up with his mask designer for the World Cup of Hockey. The result was an eye-popping Team USA lid that makes use of the same glow in the dark technology as his Tampa Bay Lightning helmet.
Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop's mask is one of the most unique in the NHL. Using a technology called GLOW Tech FX, Bishop's mask is as eye-popping as any in the league, lighting up when the arena goes dark and showing off the mask's design. Bishop's mask was designed by DaveArt's ...

Claude Giroux was slated to miss 10-12 weeks following surgery to repair a sports hernia and hip injury, but the Philadelphia Flyers captain is back training after just nine weeks. This past season, Giroux, 28, had his lowest points per game since 2009-10.
The Flyers didn't make a big splash in free agency, but that doesn't mean there isn't positive news coming out of Philadelphia. After going under the knife in mid-May to repair a sports hernia and a hip injury, Flyers star center Claude Giroux is ahead of schedule and appears as though he'll ...

A sports betting website has given odds for the Las Vegas expansion franchise’s team name, with Black Knights leading the way. And while some other suggestions seem like possible fits, others, such as Magicians or Chips, have no shot at being the new club’s name.
Las Vegas expansion team owner Bill Foley isn't having the easiest time naming his franchise. “I didn't realize how complicated it was, and it is complicated,” Foley said last week when introducing George McPhee as the team's first GM. “We are working our way through the process right now, ...

An injury to Ryan Callahan had Team USA looking for a replacement, and GM Dean Lombardi has selected Kyle Palmieri to fill the spot. Palmieri, 25, is coming off of a career year with 30 goals and 57 points, and earns the spot ahead of Phil Kessel and Kyle Okposo.
The past year could end up being one of the very best of Kyle Palmieri's career. Since being acquired by the Devils from the Ducks, Palmieri, 25, has had the breakout that Anaheim had been waiting for, potting 30 goals and 57 points in 82 games this past season in New Jersey.

Former Canadiens analytics consultant Matt Pfeffer came under fire when he referred to Shea Weber as an 'average NHLer.' It turns out that is bang-on when it comes to 5-on-5, but not when other factors are considered.
Some things in life are not terribly fair. And in the case of the P.K. Subban trade, much of the trade has become a referendum on the merits of Shea Weber. Last I checked, Weber didn't ask to be traded to one of the most hockey-mad cities on the planet for a player who was universally loved by ...

Phil Kessel brought the Stanley Cup to Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children Monday on his day with the trophy. Kessel, 28, had previously said there was a “good chance” he’d bring the Cup back to Toronto, where he spent six seasons as a Maple Leaf.
Phil Kessel did what Maple Leafs fans had always hoped he would: he brought the Stanley Cup to Toronto. The only difference is he did so as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins rather than as one of the cities beloved Maple Leafs. But even the biggest Maple Leafs supporter would have a hard time ...

Brayden Schenn was one of the league’s top scorers in the second half of the season, and the Philadelphia Flyers have paid him as such. Schenn, 24, now has to prove that his 19-goal, 44-point back half of the season was no fluke.
Ahead of their scheduled arbitration date with Brayden Schenn, the Philadelphia Flyers were seeking to lock the 24-year-old up to a two-year deal worth slightly more than $4.3 million per season. Schenn's request was a one-year deal worth $5.5 million. Turns out the two sides didn't need ...

The St. Louis Blues appeared ready to trade Kevin Shattenkirk at the draft, but the blueliner remains on the roster three weeks into free agency. However, recent moves could see the Rangers make a play for Shattenkirk as a replacement for Keith Yandle.
After weeks of anticipation, the New York Rangers finally made a significant roster move this summer. On Monday, they dealt center Derick Brassard and a seventh-round pick in 2018 to the Ottawa Senators for center Mika Zibanejad and a 2018 second-round selection.

Brandon Prust says he’s healthy and ready to chase a deal through training camp, but he won’t be the only player looking to find a spot in the NHL next season on a tryout contract.
After the way things started in Montreal for Zack Kassian, it would have been hard to imagine that it was he who would have had the better season following an off-season trade between the Canadiens and Canucks that sent Brandon Prust to Vancouver. However, after the off-season crash and stint in ...

The NHL has dismissed neutral arbitrator James Oldham, according to a report. Oldham was the arbitrator in the Dennis Wideman suspension hearing and reduced the suspension to 10 games from its original 20 games. The NHL is seeking to have that ruling vacated.
James Oldham's most notable decision as the NHL and NHLPA's neutral arbitrator appears as if it will also be his last. According to the Sports Business Journal's Liz Mullen, the NHL has dismissed Oldham from his post as neutral arbitrator. Oldham, a law professor at Georgetown University, ...
