Both of their dreams have come true, according to Nolan’s interview with Jon Rosen of lakingsinsider.com.
“I’m sure it will be neat to see him out there on the opposite side of the bench. But we’ve definitely never had this opportunity. He’s coached me a few times. And obviously it’s his dream to coach in the NHL and my dream to play in the NHL. So for us to be in the same game together is pretty special.”
Ted, coached Nolan in his Bantam team (coaching Nolan on defense) before he was in the OHL, and his summer hockey teams.
Jordan also told Rosen, it’s just another game, “It’s just a little more of a special feeling out there I would think. I’m not looking to be saying hello to him in the game or anything like that. But I’m sure we’ll talk before the game and after the game and I’m sure I’ll give him a little look during the game. So it’s going to be fun I think and I have family that will be watching.”
As first reported by Lisa Dillman of the Los Angeles Times, Slava Voynov met with the district attorney’s office on Wednesday, and they have requested additional follow-up from the Redondo Beach Police Department.
Their request is to help decide whether the charges against the Los Angeles Kings defenseman will be filed.
Voynov’s lawyer Craig Renetzky told the Times that he saw this as a positive sign.
It was announced Monday morning by the NHL that Voynov will be suspended indefinitely from all team activities after he was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.
According to the Redondo Beach Police Department, the victim needed medical attention and Voynov was at the hospital with her where police arrested him around 1:00 am, Monday.
Voynov was released from the Redondo Beach jail at approximately 9:00 a.m. Monday, on a $50,000 bond.
Voynov’s courtdate is on December 1.
Renetzky told the Times that he spoke to the victim with a Russian translator and that the victim was very clear, Voynov did not punch or hit her in any way. “Based on what she is telling me, there’s no crime here. There’s certainly not enough to bring criminal charges.”
JONATHAN QUICK Counted among the best of his peers, Jonathan Quick rewrote Los Angeles Kings goaltending records, backstopped them to their first ever Stanley Cup in their nearly half-century of existence, and, maybe most remarkably, nobody ever saw him coming.
Selected in the third round, 72nd overall by the Kings, Quick was the eighth goalie chosen in the 2005 NHL amateur draft and was far from being heralded as joining the next generation of world beaters in net. In fact, he wasn’t even pegged to become the Kings’ goaltender of the future; rather, Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s Jonathan Bernier, whom L.A. chose with their first pick in 2006, would be slated for that role.
The NHL announced Wednesday morning, that tonight’s game between the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs at the Canadian Tire Center has been postponed.
A press release from the NHL stated, “The National Hockey League wishes to express its sympathy and prayers to all affected by the tragic events in Ottawa.”
This was announced following the death of a Canadian soldier in a shooting accident at Parliament Hill.
The league said a makeup date for the game will be announced later.
Tonight, the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers will play at the Consol Energy Center. The Penguins will pay tribute to the fallen officer before the game by playing the Canadian National Anthem before the "Star-Spangled Banner"; despite both teams in the game being American.
According to news sources, a soldier on guard at the National War Memorial was shot and killed Wednesday morning. Reports also say the attacker was killed. Downtown Ottawa was put on lockdown as authorities searched for a possible second gunman.
