The Rogers Cup is in Toronto this upcoming week, with some of tennis' best competing in the Canadian Open. In the build up to the tournament, the Rogers Cup hosted a celebrity ball hockey game. Ontario natives and Dallas Stars centermen Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza were on hand for the fun and were joined by world No. 1 men's tennis player Novak Djokovic.
The Dallas Stars are in active negotiations with restricted free agent forward Valeri Nichushkin, according to the club’s general manager, Jim Nill. Following the team’s announcement of the Jamie Benn contract extension, Nill went into detail not only about Benn’s new deal, but also the status of Tyler Seguin and his injury and where they are in talks with RFA Valeri Nichushkin, who remains unsigned. “We’ve talked to his agent. We’ve exchanged offers and just going through the process.” Being that Nichushkin is a Russian forward, questions have come up about his potential willingness to head to the KHL, but Nill doesn’t think that’s the issue. “No, I don’t think so,” Nill said to Dallas News’
