Blackhawks GM Kyle Davidson said he expects to have a better handle on the team's goaltending situation over the next 24-48 hours.
Rather than tip his hand on who the Montreal Canadiens plan to select with the first pick in the NHL draft, general manager Kent Hughes joked they’ll end up with all three of Shane Wright, Juraj Slafkovsky and Logan Cooley. If the Canadiens want to make a splash, they could end up with two of them. There’s uncertainly surrounding who’s going No. 1 for the first time in nearly a decade, when the Colorado Avalanche chose Nathan MacKinnon in 2013.
The NHL 2022-23 regular season will open in North America on October 11 with a double-header that includes a rematch of the Eastern Conference finals between the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Rangers.
