To find long-term success, NHL must address playoff format

When the Atlanta Thrashers relocated and became the Winnipeg Jets in 2011, the NHL was forced into reconsidering the entire scheme of the league. It was the second re-location of an Atlanta NHL franchise, and the move raised competitive and logistical issues to commissioner Gary Bettman, the NHL Players Association and the Board of Governors to work together and realign the league, issues that were not dealt with successfully. While...

Defensive development: Angel Delgado now a dual asset

Since breaking through as a freshman in the 2014-15 season, Angel Delgado has been a key cog in Kevin Willard’s offense for Seton Hall.

So far in his collegiate career, Delgado has amassed 64 double-doubles. He also averages a...
