Off the Trail...
- It seems like every week there’s another instance of abuse or harrassment in the NHL brought to light. This week, it’s the Anaheim Ducks general manager Bob Murphy under the spotlight, who has been placed on administrative leave due to allegations of creating a hostile work environment with “mental warfare”.

- Speaking of NHL misconduct, the Pittsburgh Penguins reached a settlement with former assistant AHL coach Jerrod Skalde and his wife, Erin, related to allegations of sexual assault against former Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins head coach Clark Donatelli. The settlement also means that current Wild general manager and former Wilkes-Barre/Scranton GM Bill Guerin is unlikely to face prosecution, though he is still being investigated by SafeSport pertaining to his knowledge and handling of the situation after it was reported.
