Ontario police press charges on banana suspect

Various reports indicate the Ontario police have pressed charges on the man suspected of throwing a banana at Flyers winger Wayne Simmonds.

NHL won't punish Wayne Simmonds

I think it's safe to say Simmonds has had an insane week. After dealing with the banana incident, Wayne was back in the spotlight after allegedly using a homophoic slur against Sean Avery.

After a lot of chirping between the two during the game, the NHL has decided to not suspend of fine Simmonds. (ProHockeyTalk)

Stan Bowman: Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford 'progressing like he normally would'

Stan Bowman: Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford 'progressing like he normally would'

Stan Bowman likes where Corey Crawford is at this state of the offseason, he said Friday prior to the NHL Draft.

Speaking with NBC Sports Chicago's Pat Boyle, Bowman noted that while Crawford hasn't begun doing any on-ice work, that isn't unusual for players this early.

"We’ve been in contact with Corey and I think he’s been progressing like he normally would," Bowman said. "Most guys don’t do a lot of on-ice work the first couple of months of the offseason.

"Typically they get back on the ice sometime in July, some guys don’t skate until August. I think that’s sort of the plan for Corey as we go along here. I would say he’s right on the normal schedule for the offseason and we’ll just see how that goes."

That's good news for the Blackhawks, who sorely missed Crawford a year ago. The three-time Stanley Cup champion appeared in just 28 games, earning a 16-9-2 record and a 2.27 GAA.
