Some NHL updates:
- The Ilya Kovalchuk contract hearing begins today. I can't wait for this saga to end.
- Mike Modano confirmed yesterday that he will sign with the Red Wings.
- Yesterday, Tyler Seguin agreed to a 3-year entry-level contract with the Bruins.
- There will be a press conference at 2:00 pm PST today to discuss the Canadiens-Flames Heritage Classic. A live stream will be available at NHL.com. UPDATE: The special Flames jersey is drawing jokes on Twitter....
A couple updates from the farm teams:
- The Manitoba Moose announced today that they will play the Abbotsford Heat (baby Flames) in a pair of AHL pre-season games on October 1st and 2nd.
- The Victoria Salmon Matt Pope yesterday for the 2010-2011 season. This means that Pope is no longer under a Canucks contract, this is ECHL-only. Today, they have also signed AHL veteran Derek Couture, young defenceman Kris Fredheim, and returning veteran Kiel McLeod. They will be revealing 2 more signings later (follow @TheSalmonKings on Twitter). UPDATE: The last 2 are local favourites Matt Siddall and Chad Painchaud.
