FILE - In this May 17, 1983, file photo, New York Islanders coach Al Arbour celebrates in the locker room as he holds the Stanley Cup after the Islanders won their fourth cup in a row, beating the Edmonton Oilers 4-2 to sweep the series at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, N.Y. Arbour, who ranks as the NHL's second-most winningest coach, has died, team officials announced Friday, Aug. 28, 2015. He was 82. The cause of death is unclear, though Arbor was battling a lengthy illness and had been living in Florida. (AP Photo/Pool, File)

Upon learning of Arbour's death on Friday, Bowman marveled at how the former New York Islanders coach was capable of winning 740 games and four Stanley Cup championships with just one team. ''Nobody can do that,'' Bowman told The Associated Press by phone. It's something Bowman was unable to do, as his NHL-record 1,244 career coaching wins, and nine championships spanned five teams and 30 seasons.

Mike Richards, an NHL free agent whose contract was terminated by the Los Angeles Kings, was charged with possession of a controlled substance. Police say a 30-year-old male was arrested and released June 17 after the RCMP was notified that a controlled substance had been intercepted in Emerson, which is more than 60 miles south of Winnipeg, on the North Dakota border. Richards had five years and $22 million left on his contract with the Kings, who cited ''material breach'' in ending the deal.

The Calgary Flames completed the top task on their summer to-do list by signing captain Mark Giordano to a six-year contract extension. The 31-year-old defenseman still has a year remaining on his deal, but Flames general manager Brad Treliving said in May that re-signing Giordano was his ''No. 1 priority'' this offseason. ''Mark has established himself over the last few years as an elite defenseman in the league,'' Treliving told The Canadian Press.
