NHL News: Brad Marchand, Joseph Woll, Jesperi Kotkaniemi and Evgeni Malkin

Marchand’s suspension will be appealed

NHLPA: On behalf of Brad Marchand, the NHL filed an appeal for the six-game suspension.

Fluto Shinzawa: Brad Marchand: “Was it stupid? Of course it was stupid. I’m not denying that. I absolutely should not have done it. But suspension-worthy? I don’t think so.”

Fluto Shinzawa: Marchand: “These plays were not going to injure Jarry. No potential injury on that play. He was very well protected. The fact that it’s six games is based on history, not on the play.”

Maple Leafs extend Woll

Chris Johnston: The Toronto Maple Leafs have extended goaltender Joseph Woll for three years with an AAV of $766,666.

2023-24: $775,000 one-way.

2024-25: $775,000 one-way.
