The NHL has suspended Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter for two games, without pay, for elbowing Pittsburgh Penguins forward Steve Downie.
The summer of 2012 has been rather eventful for the Penguins, but there are still plenty of questions lingering as we head into the second week of July.
The Wild landed not one but both of the NHL’s top prizes in free agency, signing forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter on Wednesday. Each deal is for 13 years and $98 million, according to three people familiar with the contracts who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team did not release details.
The two top targets for the Pittsburgh Penguins in free agency — winger Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter — remain undecided on where they’ll play next.
We’ve all heard the phrase “Christmas in July,” but there may not be a better use of the phrase than July 1 in the world of the National Hockey League.
