Good morning, my name is Andrew Fantucchio. It’s Saturday, November 11, and here’s what’s happening around the NHL today.
Zadorov Requests Trade Out Of Calgary:
Nikita Zadorov has requested the Calgary Flames to trade him, according to Kevin Weekes of ESPN.
**Breaking News 🚨 📰**

Zadorov’s request came shortly after Calgary’s shootout loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs last night.
The defenseman is in the last year of a two-year deal with the Flames and has a $3.75 million cap hit this season.
Through 12 games, the 28-year-old Zadorov has four points with one goal.
Jagr Headed To The Rafters In Pittsburgh:
Jaromir Jagr wore many jerseys throughout his legendary NHL career, and now, one is being immortalized forever.
The Pittsburgh Penguins have announced that Jagr’s No. 68 will be lifted to the rafters of PPG Paints Arena as only the third number retired in the franchise’s history.
The official jersey retirement ceremony will take place prior to the Penguins’ game against the Los Angeles Kings on Feb. 18, 2024.
Reinforcements Coming For Panthers:
The reigning Eastern Conference champion Florida Panthers have been depleted by injuries for much of the early part of the season.
However, it appears the Panthers are about to get reinforcements at just the right time, with Sam Bennett and Brandon Montour on the verge of returning to the lineup.
Both Bennett and Montour were essential to Flordia’s run to the Stanley Cup Final last season and would be welcome additions to the lineup.

Panthers: 5, Hurricanes: 2
Capitals: 4, Devils: 2
Maple Leafs: 5, Flames: 4 (SO)
Golden Knights: 5, Sharks: 0
