Like everyone else here in Dallas, legendary Stars center Mike Modano heard the jeers for NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. They started early and continued throughout the first round of the NHL Draft on Saturday night, usually at Bettman's encouragement. They stopped when Modano and Stars captain Jamie Benn surprised Dallas fans with an appearance on stage when the team made their pick. "He couldn't wait for us to get out there. He was struggling. I told him I'd go out there and tell everybody to back off on Gary a little bit. ‘Well, they might start booing you,' he said. That be shortlived," said Modano with a laugh. "Poor Gary. He get it everywhere. They booed him when he came out when Jersey [won the Cup] in Reunion Arena, so he's no stranger to that."

The NHL offered some clarity on Slava Voynov's potential reinstatement. The defenseman, whose rights are held by the Los Angeles Kings on the voluntary retirement list, pleaded no contest to a reduced misdemeanor charge for domestic violence in 2015 and moved to Russia. He's made it clear he wants to return to North America and the NHL. After Voynov gets his immigration and legal matters sorted out, the next step is a meeting with Commissioner Gary Bettman. "At the time when it happened, he was dealing with legal issues and immigration issues. He really was not in a position where he could allow [the NHL] to investigate in any meaningful way. And then he went back to the KHL. In a lot of respects, we're starting at ground zero with him," said deputy commissioner Bill Daly. "What happened and what happened since ... all of that would go into any ultimate decision by Gary on his eligibility to play." As for whether the NHL should even consider reinstating a player who did jail time for domestic violence, Daly said: "I'm not in a position to opine on that. Without understanding all the facts, I don't think anyone is in a position to opine on that."

The NHL is still getting a handle on legalized sports wagering. In particular, the league has set guidelines for how its teams can accept advertising from sports gambling companies. "In the short term, clubs will be able to take on generic advertising. No tie-ins, but generic advertising," said commissioner Gary Bettman. That doesn't apply to teams that play in states which have active legal sports wagering. The New Jersey Devils, for example, could partner with Monmouth Park's sportsbook in a co-branding effort, and the NHL would be fine with it.
