Jakob Silfverberg later grabbed his own rebound off the post with his hand, dropped it to his stick, and scored in the Ducks' 4-1 victory over the Arizona Coyotes that moved Anaheim into a first...

Life After Wisniewski

My heart sank when I heard the news. It was approximately 30 minutes after the deadline had passed that the announcement came down. At this point I had already started analyzing the plan for next season.
