A 41-game suspension for Shane Pinto:

“This is still developing, but, according to several sources, the vast majority of NHL teams voted to decentralize the draft. Ballots were due Tuesday, and there clearly is desire to try a new format. Discussions on how to move forward will be at the GM meetings in November and Board of Governors in December.” [Sportsnet]

Zack Kassian announces his retirement:

“In practice, though, man-to-man (defense) increasingly does not align with the NHL. The league continues to shift toward speed and skill, preferably combined with size. Slowing down such players with solo assignments can be a fool’s errand, especially when referees are encouraged to whistle anything resembling deterrence.” [The Athletic ($)]

Just incredible:
