This shouldn't come as a surprise, but Matt Cooke won't be facing a supplemental discipline hearing for the incident with Erik Karlsson on Wednesday night. (Ren Lavoie)

Here is video and details on the injury to Karlsson if you missed it; a lacerated Achilles. Ouch! (Eye on Hockey)

Pay Ryan O'Reilly the money? Well, here's a counter argument from Adrian Dater why the Avalanche were right to not give him more. (Denver Post)

Remember a few years ago, when the Canadiens were starting Jaroslav Halak with success and then shipped him out to turn the franchise over to a young and seemingly-not-ready Carey Price? Price has matured a lot since then. Doesn't look like such a bad move, does it? (Montreal Gazette)

Injury corner: The Devils placed Dainius Zubrus on the IR and recalled Andrei Loktionov. (Newjersey.com)

One of the surprising players across the league this season, Toronto's Matt Frattin, is also headed to the IR and is expected to miss at least a week. (Globe and Mail)
