We still have a few more days until the NHL Draft, which we will be covering of course, and the Goldwater lawsuit isn't until next Tuesday, again we will be covering it probably in person. That being said the hockey news is kinda slow, many of us are trying to kill the time by repeatedly checking hockey news outlets waiting for new news while watching the Godfather on Blu Ray. Or that could just be me.
We fortunately did manage to scrape together some hockey news for you including a trade and a retirement. We have that and more after the jump.
