Sheldon Kennedy won’t be at the NHL’s Board of Governors meeting this week in Palm Beach, Florida, but his presence certainly will be felt. He has had several calls and meetings with NHL executive Kim Davis over the past several weeks in the wake of Kyle Beach and the Chicago Blackhawks scandal.

He was supposed to be at the Board of Governors this week but changed his plans. But it does sound like his input and counsel was received by Davis and will be part of her presentation to NHL owners and governors this week.
