    Kings broadcaster Bob Miller has relinquished his microphone, a reluctant decision but one that was strongly recommended by his doctors to safeguard his health after he underwent quadruple bypass surgery early in 2016, suffered a mini-stroke three months later, and had another stroke in January. Miller, 78, was in his 44th season calling Kings games. He had cut back his schedule drastically and eliminated travel to games outside Pacific Division cities, but even that reduced workload proved too much.

    Colin Kaepernick’s decision not to stand during the playing of the “The Star-Spangled Banner” has had a ripple effect across the sports world in the past week. It has elicited reactions — both in support and in condemnation — from players around the NFL and beyond, military members and even President Obama. A prominent name from professional hockey added his opinion to the mix Tuesday, and it wasn’t in favor of Kaepernick’s social justice protest. “If any of my players sit on the bench for the national anthem, they will sit there the rest of the game,” USA Hockey Coach...

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said in an e-mail to the Tribune on Wednesday, "yes we are looking into it, and no we can't comment on it until that process is complete." After being assessed an interference penalty late in the Blues’ 4-3 victory, Shaw was yelling at officials while seated in the penalty box and video of the incident appeared to show him using a homophobic slur.

That was followed by Team USA's and Ottawa Senators first-rounder Colin White tying things up on a great effort to get to the net. Zach Werenski (Columbus Blue Jackets) and Dylan...

The leader, famous for posing shirtless on horseback and in other unashamedly macho situations, played in a hockey game Wednesday night alongside former NHL stars. As you'd expect, Putin's team won. And the man himself scored seven goals. The President's teammates included former Vancouver Canucks player Pavel Bure, as well as Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, who earlier in the day had been briefing Putin on Russia's latest round of military strikes...

So, naturally, this gave the Stars' entertainment team an ample opportunity to stir up a little national fervor in the proud American city of Dallas, Texas.
