The lockout might be what finally brings down Teemu Selanne's amazing career.

Selanne didn't take the decision to put off retirement and play at the age of 42 lightly, but he's being denied the opportunity to do that as the NHL and players' union bicker over money. In the meantime, Selanne has been attending practices in Anaheim with a dwindling number of players. "A lot of times when I drive to the rink here and I know there’s only four of five guys skating, I’m thinking, ‘Right now, I’d like to call and say I’m done,’" Selanne said. "This is enough right now. I’m old enough to do something else and not play with the kids. Next time, I feel like I want to wait and see what happens. I have played so many games, so many years. This is not a big thing for me. If I have to retire like this, I’m still going to be a happy camper. But this is a sad way to go out, this way."

The Florida Panthers have acquired Reto Berra from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for Rocco Grimaldi.

And just like that, the Panthers have their backup goaltender. Berra couldn't stick with the Avalanche in the NHL for the entire 2015-16 campaign, but that was due to a mixture of injury woes and Calvin Pickard's ascent rather than him struggling on the ice. When Berra did play for Colorado he posted a 2.41 GAA and .922 save percentage in 14 games. He has one season left on his three-year, $4.35 million contract.

Patrick Kane was selected as the 2016 Hart Trophy winner.

No surprise there as Kane ran away with the 2015-16 scoring title with 106 points in 82 games. He also won the Ted Lindsay Award, which also goes to the league's best player, but as voted by his peers. This is the first time a member of the Chicago Blackhawks has won the Hart Trophy since 1968 when Stan Mikita claimed it for the second consecutive season.

The 2016 Vezina Trophy winner is Braden Holtby.

Holtby tied the NHL single-season record with 48 wins last season. He also posted a 2.20 GAA and .922 save percentage in 66 starts. In the end the Vezina voting wasn't even close as Holtby got 140 points to Ben Bishop's 51.

Drew Doughty is the 2016 Norris Trophy winner.

This is the first time Doughty has claimed the Norris Trophy, but he's had a couple near misses in the past. He finished second in the Norris Trophy voting in 2015 and was third in 2010. He's coming off of a campaign where he recorded 14 goals and 51 points in 82 contests. He also had 125 hits and 105 blocked shots.

Artemi Panarin won the 2016 Calder Trophy.

Panarin finished with 1,258 points in the vote ahead of defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere at 955 points and Connor McDavid with 858 points. It would have been interesting to see what McDavid could have done with a full season, but as it is it's not surprising to see Panarin on top. He had 30 goals and 77 points in 80 games.

The NHL has unanimously voted to expand to Las Vegas.

The Quebec City bid wasn't approved at this time, so starting in 2017-18 the NHL will have 31 teams. It will be interesting to see how the NHL does in Vegas, to say the least. Obviously this is a nontraditional market, which comes with its own set of challenges, but then there's also the questions that are unique to Vegas. Will the team get drowned out by the all the shows that happen at night in Vegas? Will the team draw a steady flow of tourists to its games? Will the team present itself a little differently than the rest of the NHL in a reflection of the unique city its representing? At the end of the day though, there's a lot of potential here given the city's size and the constant influx of tourists.

Milan Lucic intends to become a UFA on July 1.

The Kings attempted to re-sign Lucic, but they couldn't make anything work. Los Angeles has even taken the step of allowing the 29 other teams to start talking to Lucic in advance. He'll attract plenty of interest, but Edmonton and Vancouver have often been cited as potential destinations for Lucic if he couldn't make things work with the Kings.

Alex Goligoski has reportedly agreed to a five-year, $27.375 million contract.

In other words Goligoski is getting a $5,475,000 annual cap hit, up from $4.6 million in his previous deal. The fact that he's marginally under $5.5 million is perhaps a reflection of the fact that Oliver Ekman-Larsson is at $5.5 million, so this way he remains the team's highest paid blueliner. Goligoski recorded 42, 36, and 37 points in each of his last three seasons with Dallas. With him eligible to test the unrestricted free agent market this summer, the Stars handed his negotiating rights to the Coyotes for the price of a 2016 fifth round pick.

Brent Burns has one season left on his five-year, $28.8 million contract.

The Norris Trophy finalist racked up 27 goals and 75 points 82 games during the 2015-16 season. "You know how we feel about Brent. Phenomenal year," GM Doug Wilson said.
