NHL News and Links - Quick Shifts: August 20th Edition

NHL Quick Shifts is a daily series where we gather up the latest NHL news and links from the FanSided NHL blogosphere, as well as other NHL / hockey blogs. So with that, here is today’s edition of Quick Shifts!

  • Buffalo Sabres bringing NHL combine to Pegulaville – Terry Pegula’s brand new HarborCenter in downtown Buffalo already features two NHL sized rinks on the its 6th floor, a hotel, sports bar, a Tim Horton‘s, and a parking garage. All of this is located just a spitting distance away from the First Niagara Center, home of the Buffalo Sabres. With the exception of Canisius College’s Division 1 men’s team calling HarborCenter home, what the venue was lacking was a marquee event. It appears that Pegula may finally have that, with the announcement that the NHL Combine will be coming to HarborCenter. [TMMOTS]
  • Did the the new Tampa Bay Lightning third jersey leak? – Likely not. Hockey Bay, a blog that covers the Tampa Bay Lightning, posted an image of a supposed “Tampa Bay Lightning third jersey”. The only problem is that the “leak” closely resembles a supposed Reebok Edge prototype that was posted on IceThetics earlier in the offseason. The only difference being that the old Lightning logo has been replaced with the newer one. [Puck Daddy]
  • New York Islanders have been sold – Tuesday afternoon it was announced that the New York Islanders have been sold to Jon Ledecky (a former co-owner of the Washington Capitals) and Scott Malkin, a London based investor. While the financial details have yet to be disclosed, current owner, Charles Wang, will maintain majority stock ownership in the team for the next two seasons. After that, Ledecky and Malkin will take over majority ownership of the team. [TMMOTS]
