NHL linesman Don Henderson has filed a $10.25 million lawsuit against Calgary Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman.
Henderson is seeking general damages of $200,000, special damages to pay for housekeeping, yard work and hospital expenses of $50,000, and damages for loss of income and future loss of income of $10 million. Wideman hit Henderson during a Jan. 27, 2016, game in Calgary and he was initially suspended for 20 games. The ban was reduced to 10 contests by an independent arbitrator, which the league fought unsuccessfully in court. Apr 20 - 6:35 PM

Dennis Wideman is open to waiving his no-movement clause if the Flames want to trade him.

"If that’s something that (the Flames) want to do, then they can call and I definitely would be open to it," Wideman said. "I think, as a player, you don’t want to be anywhere that you’re not wanted. So if they want to move you and someone wants to take you, then it’s nice to go somewhere like that if that’s the case. And if I don’t hear anything, then I guess I’m here." Wideman is in the final season of his contract and it doesn't seem like he fits into the Flames' plans in the long-term and maybe not even in the short-term anymore. After all, the Flames made him a healthy scratch on Tuesday after acquiring Michael Stone from Arizona. With three goals and 16 points in 52 contests, this is far from one of Wideman's better seasons, but a team might still be interested in him as a rental for the sake of having some extra defensive depth and on the off-chance that a change of scenery will spark him.
