 we'll get to the right place.","I may ultimately have to be in a position of making a judgment here, and I try to never prejudge things, and ultimately," Bettman told WKRN. "There is a process that we will go through

 sending Henderson to the ice and against the boards. Wideman said the hit was unintentional. He was not penalized.,Wideman had just taken a hit from Nashville winger Miikka Salomaki and was skating toward the Flames' bench when he leveled linesman Don Henderson from behind

Wideman said after the game that he was distracted after the Salomaki hit and unintentionally collided with Henderson.

"I took a pretty good hit down in the corner and had some pretty good pain in my shoulder and neck, I looked up and saw [Henderson] and couldn't avoid it. I went up to Donnie and apologized to him on the ice.," Wideman said. "I was just trying to get off the ice and kind of keeled over. At the last second

"I didn't see him. I didn't know where to go and how to get out of the way. I've been around for a few years, and I think I've treated every official with the utmost respect, and I would never intentionally try to hit a linesman or a ref. It was completely unintentional, and I already apologized to him."

 Wideman skated over to where the officials were gathered and apologized.,At the next stoppage

Wideman, is in his fourth season with the Flames and 11th in the NHL. He is second on the team in penalty minutes with 30 and has two goals and 19 points this season., 32

 New York Rangers left wing Dan Carcillo elbowed linesman Steve Driscoll while Driscoll was trying to keep Carcillo away from Montreal Canadiens forward Brandon Prust. Carcillo was assessed a game misconduct penalty and suspended 10 games.,Most physical contact between players and officials has occurred when officials have been trying to break up fights among players. In the 2014 Eastern Conference finals

 Tampa Bay Lightning winger Andre Roy left the penalty box and made contact with a linesman who was trying to stop him from resuming a fight with the Rangers' Sandy McCarthy. Roy was suspended three games for physical abuse of an official and 10 games for leaving the penalty box.,In April 2002

Some officials have been more than collateral damage. In September 2000, 10 games for leaving the penalty box and three games for three game-misconduct penalties., Lightning winger Gordie Dwyer "applied physical force, then left the penalty box and pulled referee Mark Faucette to the ice as he tried to go after Reekie again. Dwyer was suspended 10 games for physical abuse of officials," per the NHL, to linesman David Brisebois during a fight with Joe Murphy and Joe Reekie of the Washington Capitals

Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Curtis Joseph was given a misconduct penalty but not suspended in 2000 after he tried to confront referee Mick McGeough about a controversial goal and slipped and took out McGeough's legs. However, Chicago Blackhawks center Tom Lysiak was suspended 20 games, among the longest bans in NHL history, for intentionally tripping linesman Ron Foyt in 1983.

Among the most notable on-ice incidents between players and officials were those involving Maurice "The Rocket" Richard and Billy Coutu.

On March 13,000 damage and leading to arrests and injuries., Richard, a Canadiens winger, was on the receiving end of a high stick from Boston Bruins defenseman Hal Laycoe.

 but he never played again.,In the 1927 Stanley Cup finals,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-blake-wheeler-jersey]Authentic Blake Wheeler jersey[/url], Coutu, punched a referee and tackled another during a bench-clearing brawl. He received a lifetime ban and was fined $100.

 and regular-season games resume Tuesday.,The All-Star Game is Sunday

But after taking points in 11 straight games heading into their five-day break,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-connor-hellebuyck-jersey]adidas Connor Hellebuyck jersey[/url], Boston has the second-best record in the Atlantic Division. Across the NHL, only the Tampa Bay Lightning, Winnpieg Jets and Vegas Golden Knights have squeezed out more points per game than the Bruins.

 the Bruins headed into the break with an 8-0-3 run that is their best since they went 15-0-1 in March 2014 on their way to the best regular season in the NHL.,Despite an overtime loss at Pittsburgh on Sunday that ended their three-game winning streak

“Guys seem pretty dedicated to really just taking it day by day and not looking too far ahead,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-michael-hutchinson-jersey]Authentic Michael Hutchinson jersey[/url], and that seems to be what we’re doing right now.”,” said forward Brad Marchand, but we know that. We want to make sure that each and every game we give ourselves an opportunity to win, the Bruins’ leading scorer, with 40 points. “Obviously it’s not going to go as well as it is right now all year

After ending a two-year postseason drought last spring, Marchand missed eight and center Patrice Bergeron missed five. Forward David Backes came back ahead of schedule following surgery to deal with diverticulitis but still missed 17 games., the Bruins have integrated a handful of rookies into a banged-up lineup. Center David Krejci missed 18 games

The Chicago Blackhawks acquired winger Anthony Duclair from the Arizona Coyotes in a four-player trade Wednesday.

Chicago also got defenseman Adam Clendening in the move that seeks to shake up a perennial contender fighting to maintain a playoff position. The NHL-worst Coyotes received winger Richard Panik and minor leaguer Laurent Dauphin.

Duclair has nine goals and six assists in 33 games this season, scoring in each of his last two games after asking the Coyotes to trade him. Acquired from New York in 2015 in the deal that sent Keith Yandle to the Rangers, Duclair had 20 goals and 24 assists in 81 games in 2015-16, then had only five goals and 10 assists in 58 games last season.

” said.,“It’s gone back for a few years now where the team wasn’t particularly happy with the player and the player wasn’t particularly happy with the team

 Florida.,Left wing Brad Marchand will represent Boston on the Atlantic Division team at the 3-on-3 All-Star tournament on Jan. 28 in Tampa

The league-leading Tampa Bay Lightning will be the best represented team at the event, with captain Steven Stamkos, top scorer Nikita Kucherov, goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy and defenseman Victor Hedman joining Marchand on the Atlantic Division team.

Coach Phil Housley said it was “good to see some emotion” from his struggling team after forward Evander Kane and defenseman Justin Falk had to be separated following a brief shoving match during practice Wednesday.

Forward Bobby Ryan did not travel with the team to Toronto on Wednesday because of a hand injury. The team did not yet know how long he will be sidelined.

 but the list of this year's most coveted prospects is starting to come into clear view with the start of the playoffs on the horizon. ,The 2018 NFL draft pool isn't set yet

While official word proved elusive a week ago, signal-caller Josh Rosen and Penn State running back Saquon Barkley all announced their intentions to declare for the draft following bowl games. , former  quarterback Sam Darnold

And with the non-playoff portion of the draft order finalized —with the exception of an impending coin flip between the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders—we can start to make some more robust projections. 

 and Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith would be the perfect solution for what ails them. ,The Oakland Raiders need help at the second level

 Philadelphia's Jay Ajayi and New England's Dion Lewis are all running backs who tallied receiving touchdowns against the Raiders this year." ,As the Mercury News' Matt Schneidman wrote, Oakland "struggled at times defending dual-threat backs who caught passes out of the backfield. Washington's Chris Thompson, the Chargers' Melvin Gordon, Miami's Damien Williams

 Smith is the kind of defensive linchpin defensive coordinators at the next level crave. ,A speedy sideline-to-sideline linebacker who can play all three downs

That much was clear in Georgia's College Football Playoff semifinal win over Oklahoma, including a couple of stops in overtime that helped propel the Bulldogs to the national title game. , when Smith tallied 11 total tackles

 and the Raiders could soon have one of the more robust fronts in football. ,Pair Smith with the dynamite edge-rushing tandem of Bruce Irvin and Khalil Mack

In a perfect world, Rosen or Oklahoma's Baker Mayfield. , [url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-blake-wheeler-jersey]adidas Blake Wheeler jersey[/url],they would be in position to snare Darnold

 the Cardinals could do far worse than Louisville's Lamar Jackson. ,But assuming all three of those gunslingers are off the board

Arizona already has veteran playmakers in running back David Johnson and wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, those two can give Jackson a steady foundation to work with upon arrival. , and while the entire offense will undergo wholesale changes following Bruce Arians' retirement

 "Jackson's skill set would open up the Arizona offense and pair well with David Johnson" thanks to his "lightning-fast delivery and dual-threat skills.",[url=http://www.capitalshockeyshop.com/adidas-philipp-grubauer-jersey]adidas Philipp Grubauer jersey[/url],As Bleacher Report's Matt Miller wrote in November

Western Michigan's Chukwuma Okorafor has been something of an under-the-radar name in the 2018 draft conversation,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-patrik-laine-jersey]Authentic Patrik Laine jersey[/url], 330-pounder's credentials as a future bookend in the NFL. , but it's hard to knock the 6'6''

A first-team All-American in 2017," according to NFL.com's Lance Zierlein. ,[url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-michael-hutchinson-jersey]adidas Michael Hutchinson jersey[/url], Okorafor has found himself in the first-round conversation because he has "the athletic ability to play left or right tackle

Beyond that, Okorafor still has plenty of untapped potential because, as Zierlein noted, [url=http://www.hockeyjetsshop.com/adidas-dustin-byfuglien-jersey]Authentic Dustin Byfuglien jersey[/url],he didn't begin playing football until he was a sophomore in high school. 

That's the kind of player the Philadelphia Eagles should be targeting toward the back of Round 1.
