    Trevor van Riemsdyk on the move hours after being selected by Vegas in expansion draft

    When the news came down that Marian Hossa would miss the 2017-18 season, most first thoughts were about his health. But it was only natural to look at the business implications, and the possibility of Hossa going on long-term injured reserve (LTIR). That would solve the Blackhawks’ cap issues, right? That would give them more money to spend, right? Well, not exactly. See, the LTIR can be a bit complicated. It can also be tricky to explain.

    On a day filled with surprising trades around the NHL, the Kings made a move on Friday that was expected, officially announcing they had bought out the contract of defenseman Matt Greene. They had taken the first step toward that move when they put him on waivers 10 days ago. Greene, a rugged defender and locker-room leader, had one year at $2.5 million left on his contract. The Kings will carry a salary cap hit of $833,333 for each of the next two seasons. Injuries have plagued the Grand Ledge, Mich., native in recent years and limited him to 26 games last season. He ranks ninth among Kings defensemen in regular-season games played, at 464, and he also played in 61 playoff games. His physicality
