NEWARK Washington Capitals Hats Authentic , N.J. (AP) — New Jersey coach John Hynes received a multiyear contract extension, a reward for making the playoffs last season for the first time since the Devils reached the 2012 Stanley Cup Finals.The team announced the deal Thursday, saying Hynes’ leadership was instrumental in building a culture and system for the development of the players. Contract terms were not immediately available.“He has cultivated a group of veteran leaders, while helping our young players develop and gain experience,” general manager and executive vice president Ray Shero said. “John is to be commended for the progress the team has made under his direction and this commitment shows that we are confident in the role he will play in our future success.”Hynes is in his fourth season with the Devils.

The NHL and NHL Players’ Association have given up on the possibility of staging the next World Cup of Hockey in September 2020 but will continue collective bargaining talks.The league and PA announced the conclusion in separate statements Wednesday that there’s not enough time to put together a World Cup in roughly 20 months. The sides met earlier in the day in Toronto to discuss the World Cup as part of collective bargaining talks after holding an informal meeting in Las Vegas on Jan. 10 that lasted more than two hours.Not holding the World Cup in September 2020 is consequential because it was so closely linked to the potential of labor peace in hockey.
