Producer Jerry Bruckheimer joins bid to bring NHL team to Seattle

By | August 5, 2017

The Seattle group trying to bring an NHL expansion team — and hopefully another NBA team — to the city has added movie producer Jerry Bruckheimer as a partner.

Bruckheimer, an acquaintance of NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, has been looking for years to become an NHL team owner.

According to the Seattle Times, the Los Angeles resident considered buying the Penguins in 2006 before Mario Lemieux purchased the team. In 2010, he was part of a group bidding to bring an NHL expansion team to Las Vegas. The group dropped its bid that same year.

As part of a chippy, penalty-ridden third period, Blues defenseman Joel Edmundson made a run at Subban off a faceoff shortly after Nashville scored to take a 1-0 lead. Edmundson mugged Subban, who had the puck, knocking him to the ice along with his helmet. Subban stayed down for a moment before exiting to the Predators’ locker room.

It looked like Nashville might be headed for a power play as Edmundson was assessed a two-minute minor for roughing, but the referees also hit Subban with an unsportsmanlike conduct minor for embellishment. He was unable to serve the minor penalty while he sought medical attention for potential injury, but rejoined the Nashville bench after several moments in the dressing room and returned to play in the third period.

The NHL’s current fine structure for embellishment was put into place before the 2014-15 season. That year, Subban was cited for three separate diving incidents and docked a total of $3,000 in fines. A fine requires at least seven of 10 votes from a panel of NHL officials who agree that an embellishment occurred.

Subban received an initial warning this year in a Jan. 22 game against the Wild, the league said. He would be fined $3,000 for a subsequent offense.
