I don't know the rules for minimum NHL players in a pre-season game, but this got to be scraping the bottom of the minimum.

15.4 Exhibition Games.

(c) A Club shall be permitted to dress a minimum of eight veterans for any Exhibition Game. For purposes of this Section 15.4(c), a veteran shall constitute either:

(1) a forward or defenseman who played in thirty (30) NHL Games during the previous season,

(2) a goaltender who either dressed in fifty (50) or more NHL Games or played in thirty (30) or more NHL Games in the previous season,

(3) a first round draft choice from the most recent year's Entry Draft, or

(4) any Player who has played one-hundred (100) or more career NHL Games.

Kapanen, Jooris, Cracknell, Greening, Marincin, Carrick, McElhinney, Sandin



Leafs Report touched on this. Matthews’ idea here is that the top unit now has even more options that a PK unit cannot slack off on. Same deal with moving Marleau up with Matthews too (to create space). Marleau’s style complements a fast, pass-happy style. Hyman complements a heavy puck holding below the circles style.


Dermott is ramping back up after a minor shoulder injury, so he's 4th pair at the moment.

I guess post-PP (and PK) is the only way Par Lindholm's line is getting any minutes.

The thread is good. This situation is playing out at dinner tables across the continent.

America in 2018 is a weird damned place:

Coming out swinging

and missing.

Where do you guys place the emphasis?

I’ve heard it on the gu or on the chin. I naturally put it on the chin.

Edit: chin is correct

No it's not. They're playing in the NHL for the preseason so you simply suspend them for the preseason and whatever games of regular season in the NHL. Simple as that. So if this player ever does make the NHL, they will still face a suspension before being allowed to play.

Exactly. Just because they may never actually serve the suspension is no reason not to hand out appropriate punishment.

The tricky part here is the CBA stipulations surrounding suspensions. It was an event that they determined only warranted a phone hearing (no injury, match penalty already assessed, no active prior history -- his last suspension was more than 18 months ago), which caps the suspension amount automatically at 5. The CBA also unfortunately does not differentiate between preseason and regular season games in calculating suspensions.
