NHL News: Waivers, Canadiens, Panarin and Svechnikov Fined, and the Islanders

Elliotte Friedman: The Ottawa Senators put goaltender Matt Murray on waivers.

PuckPedia: Murray remains in the 2nd year of his 4 year offer at a $6.25 million income cap hit. If he’s purchased out at the end of the season it would conserve them $5 million in money. He’d bring cap hit of:

2022-23: $1.75 million
2023-24: $750,000
2024-25: $2.5 million
2025-26: $2.5 million

Mellanby resigns

Pierre LeBrun: Montreal Canadiens assistant supervisor Scott Mellanby remained in talks with owner Geoff Molson about the GM position and after that perhaps the president of hockey operations. Molson then informed Mellanby he ran out the running. Mellanby then resigned.

Pierre LeBrun: Molson was given consent to talk to Jeff Gorton, most likely for the president of hockey operations. Wonder for how long Marc Bergevin will be kept around for “in a lame duck situation.”

Panarin and Svechnikov fined

NHL Player Safety: New York Rangers forward Artemi Panarin was fined $5,000 for unsportsmanlike conduct.

  • Vince Z. Mercogliano: “Talking to Artemi Panarin now, who confirmed that Marchand brought up the Russia stuff and crossed the line. He said trash talking is fine, but this was more of a personal attack. “I don’t like that guy,” he included with a smile.”

NHL Player Safety: Carolina Hurricanes forward Andrei Svechnikov was fined $5,000 for kneeing Philadelphia Flyers forward Scott Laughton.
