The Carolina Hurricanes lost Saturday in the National Hockey League (NHL) after nine wins for the first time this season. They had to concede a 2:5 defeat in the first game of the Eastern Conference against the Florida Panthers. The Panthers had to dispense with its position, captain Alexander Barkov, goalkeeper Sergey Bobrovskij and Sam Bennett due to injuries.
The Chicago Blackhawks fired their supervisor around coach Jeremy Coleton on Saturday. The club announced that in addition to Coleton, his assistants Thomas Mittel and Sheldon Brokebank had to leave.
The Black Hawks held onto only one win out of 12 games and spoke of “necessary changes”. A spokeswoman for the club confirmed that the separation had nothing to do with the abuse scandal. Former player Kyle Petsch, who later also became a legionnaire in Austria, had made allegations of sexual assault since 2010 and denounced the club’s leaders knowing about it but taking no action. So club president Stan Bowman resigned, as did the then Blackhawks, and more recently Florida Panthers coach Joel Quinville.
In the American Hockey League (AHL), Vorarlberg’s Marco Rossi contributed a assist against the Milwaukee Admiral on Saturday, but was unable to prevent the 2-5 defeat either.
