.@RealKyper reported tonight that P.K. Subban's current injury isn't related to the suspected back injury that forced him out two years ago.— Adam Vingan (@AdamVingan) December 16, 2018
"It's a real conservative approach by Nashville to keep him out. They think a 50-plus (game) regular season for P.K. could benefit him."

NHL offers clarification on obscure OT penalty on Blues’ Tarasenko | Yahoo Sports
What a bizarre penalty. The NHL is right to say they don’t want refs calling this during a game as a penalty, because who on earth is going to keep track of which of their teammates’ sticks they can and can’t use in a situation if theirs breaks during a game?
I’m surprised this hasn’t come up before, but I won’t be surprised if we see someone get called for this again in the future.
