Palmieri Practices with Islanders:

NHL Salary Expected To Grow in 2024:

The NHL’s salary cap has risen minimally for the last few years but could make a large jump ahead of the 2024-25 season. At the NHL Board of Governors meeting in New York City, league commissioner Gary Bettman said it’s possible for the salary cap to rise by as much as $5 million next year, which would place it in the $87 million – $88 million range.

Devils Use Power Play To Wipe Floor With Rangers:

The New Jersey Devils made quick work of the New York Rangers in preseason action on Wednesday by scoring three goals on the man advantage in Newark.
