NHL.COM:  The complete list of selections in the recently-completed 2016 NHL Draft in Buffalo, New York.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Another enjoyable NHL Draft weekend for me. Great to hang out with old friends and meet new ones. My thanks to the city of Buffalo for the fine hospitality. 

YAHOO SPORTS: Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning faces tampering charges by the league after publicly expressing interest in Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban and Tampa Bay Lightning center Steven Stamkos last week.

THE BUFFALO NEWS:  Sabres head coach Dan Bylsma wasn’t pleased to hear winger Evander Kane is being investigated for a recent incident at a Chippewa bar.

NBC SPORTS: The Los Angeles Kings re-signed forward Trevor Lewis to a four-year, $8 million contract.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: That’s $2 million per season for Lewis, who’s been a reliable checking-line forward for the Kings. The move leaves them with over $6 million in salary-cap space, enough to perhaps pursue an affordable backup goalie and perhaps a winger via trade or free agency.

CSNNE.COM:  Boston Bruins hall of famer Ray Bourque was arrested in Andover and charged with operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol.
