Theodore Tests Positive For Banned Substance

Jose Theodore has tested positive for a banned substance. The substance was not an anabolic steroid but a masking agent for steroids that is commonly found in hair restoration drugs. Theodore will not be suspended by the NHL, no word yet on an Olympic ban. More to come on this later...

Also, rumours are saying the Leafs and Blackhawks are close to a deal that would send Antropov to Chicago for Tyler Arnason. Draft picks/prospects may be involved in this trade, or may evolve into a bigger deal involving more players. Some sources say the deal is imminent, while others are more cautious saying there is still some work to be done before it's finished.

All for now, more later tonight
