​A couple of key notes; 

-The NHL is unveiling a new concussion protocol this season, which will now have 4 trainers looking at tv monitors to spot any head injuries for each team. It is the latest addition to try and prevent players from playing with head injuries. 

-The Calgary Flames and forward Johnny Gaudreau are still $1.5MM apart in contract talks as Gaudreau is asking for $8MM annually on a long-term contract. The Flames are unwilling to go that high but perhaps the two sides could end up meeting somewhere in the middle.
