After accusing teams of providing improper medical treatment over the weekend, Robin Lehner said he’s encouraged by his talks with the NHL and NHLPA: “It’s not easy to do this, but I had a great talk with the NHL and the NHLPA over the last day. I’m excited for the potential change to be made to protect a younger generation.” [ESPN]

ESPN on the idea of the NHL making in-roads in Mexico: “The idea of full-fledged expansion beyond the United States and Canada remains far-fetched, but the NHL is seeking to follow in the footsteps of other North American leagues by expanding outside of its traditional fan base. Additionally, the idea of playing either a preseason or regular-season game in Mexico is picking up steam in the highest reaches of the league office.” [ESPN]
