The Arizona Coyotes are poised to become major players on the NHL Trade market this offseason and Buffalo Sabres captain Jack Eichel is their main target.

Florida Panthers forward Sam Bennett will have a hearing with the NHL Department of Player Safety today after hitting Tampa Bay Lightning forward Blake Coleman from behind and into the boards in the third period of the Cats’ 5-4 loss in Game 1 Sunday. Bennett was trying to exact revenge for what he felt was a borderline hit on his captain Sasha Barkov by Coleman, but he appears to have crossed the line and could miss Game 2. What say you Panthers fans, should the Panthers’ NHL Trade Deadline acquisition sit a game? (Florida Hockey Now)
