Jennifer Stewart-USA TODAY Sport

TSN is adding to the Jamie McGinn rumors.

LeBrun: Another team to keep an eye on is the Colorado Avalanche. They've been making calls offering up winger Jamie McGinn. They'd like to get a defenceman or a veteran checking forward in return. McGinn's name is being offered to a couple teams around the league right now.

The Edmonton Oilers' projected new home has a name.

Rogers Communications has purchased the naming rights for the future home of the Edmonton Oilers, further increasing the telecommunications giant’s reach in Canadian professional sports.

Rogers said in a release Tuesday that the downtown arena, which is set to open in 2016, will be named Rogers Place.

The announcement comes on the heels of a new 12-year, $5.2-billion media rights agreement between the Rogers and the NHL.

The deal, which is the largest in NHL history, gives Rogers national rights to all NHL games on all of its platforms in all languages.

Wayne Gretzky is going to get some money he was owed from the Coyotes.

The NHL has reached a settlement with Wayne Gretzky to pay him money owed from his time with the Phoenix Coyotes, multiple sources with knowledge of the situation told The Canadian Press.

It was worth close to US$8-million, according to one source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Gretzky was owed money from former Coyotes owner Jerry Moyes. Moyes filed for bankruptcy in 2009, leading to the NHL’s ownership of the team until it was sold to a group led by Canadian businessmen this past summer.
