Dan’s Daily Links: Kessel Trade Rumors, Voynov Suspension Reduced

Published

on

From multiple angles and sources, Pittsburgh Penguins trade rumors surrounding Phil Kessel lept to the internet fore Thursday. It’s going to happen, just a matter of when or where. After the NWHL players formed a union, the league agreed to several concessions (kind of), the Ottawa Senators hired a new coach not named Patrick Roy, and Slava Voynov’s suspension for domestic violence was reduced to 41 games from 82.

First, the Kessel stuff from all angles:

Michael Russo from The Athletic Minnesota got the ball rolling (The Athletic)

Then our colleague Josh Yohe dropped the bomb (The Athletic)

Finally, our other colleague Jonathan Bombulie reported the Penguins are actively shopping Kessel everywhere (Tribune-Review)

Stick tap to our valued colleagues at The Athletic and the Trib for flushing out the Penguins trade rumors. For those who joined the PHN live chat Wednesday night, I may look like a fortune teller because we discussed Kessel to Minnesota (Pittsburgh Hockey Now)

The NWHL players have won a large victory, though there is some fine print (Sportsnet)

LA Kings defenseman Slava Voynov will be cleared to return to the NHL after a five-year absence. The player bolted for Russia after serious domestic violence allegations which were later dismissed. The NHL never quite knew what to do with him as fans made it clear he was not welcome back…ever. However, he’s ready to return and his suspension was reduced (TSN)

It’s going to be a tense situation. Five years is a long exile. But has the player made things right–on all fronts?
