Dano and the Devils with some inspirational words for us all:

A great story here from noted good guy Connor Carrick, who has befriended and trained with two kids in the neighborhood of his home in the Chicago area while the season is on pause: [NHL]

A real bummer: The AHL season is over, and we won’t get to see how Binghamton’s run would have ended. This year will be the first year since 1937 that the Calder Cup won’t be awarded to the AHL champion.

Binghamton Devils coach Mark Dennehy on the end of the season: “I’m disappointed for Binghamton. It’s been awhile since they had a playoff team and not only do I think we were a playoff team, I thought we were a team that might be able to go deep.” [NHL]

Pierre LeBrun on the latest updates on return to play: “I spoke with one team executive Tuesday whose club is among the bottom seven teams in the overall standings, and his impression was that his team wasn’t returning to play this season.” [The Athletic ($)]

So what does the near future look like for the AHL, especially if sports leagues can’t have fans present? AHL president David Andrews: “We’re not designed (for that). The American Hockey League as it presently operates can not play in front of empty buildings for any sustained period of time.” [Sportsnet]

Coyotes president and CEO Ahron Cohen is no longer with the Arizona organization. He’d been with the team since 2015. [The Athletic ($)]

With Michael Jordan back in the news as ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary airs, a look back at Air Jordan’s brief stint as an NHL owner: [ESPN]
