TORONTO -- Toronto Rock forward Garrett Billings, the leading scorer in the National Lacrosse League, will miss the rest of the 2014 season after suffering a torn knee ligament. Billings suffered the injury to his anterior cruciate ligament in Torontos 17-9 road win over Vancouver last Saturday. He was examined by the teams medical staff Wednesday. "It was good to hear today that there doesnt appear to be any further damage beyond the ACL tear," Billings said. "Its a long road back and it will be tough not being on the floor, but Im confident in the other guys in the locker room that we are ready to make a strong push down the stretch." Billings, a 28-year old from Langley, B.C., leads the NLL with 101 points (32 goals, 69 assists) in 15 games. He was on pace for his first scoring title after finishing runner-up the last two seasons. The Rock (6-9) are currently in third place in the East Division. They host Philadelphia this Saturday. General manager Terry Sanderson has yet to announce what roster moves will take place to fill the spot on the active roster that will be vacated by Billings when he is placed on injured reserve. "You cant replace what we have lost in Garrett Billings," said Sanderson. "We will practice on Thursday night and plan to make a decision at that point and be prepared for Saturdays game."

The NHL has not committed to sending players to participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Team Canada executive director Steve Yzerman continued to throw his support behind the NHLs participation in the Olympics when asked about it in a press conference last week. But, as expected, Bettman said this will be something addressed down the road. "The primary building blocks are logistics of travel, to and from the Olympics," NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly said afterwards. "It was a big challenge coming to Sochi and it certainly would be a big challenge if we were to go to South Korea. Player insurance is always a factor with the magnitude and length of player contracts these days, an incredible number of assets at risk. "So those were two of the most fundamental things we talked about." Daly added that the NHLs participation this time was helped by the fact that NHL broadcasters CBC and NBC also were Olympic rights holders. But the rights holders have yet to be determined for 2018. "So we havent really given any serious consideration to South Korea at all," Daly said. The players will have a big say on this issue. Fehr promised a full and thorough investigation as to whether continued Olympic participation is what the playerrs want.dddddddddddd The NHL players volition to compete in the Olympics has been the main driving force behind their participation in the Winter Games. World Cup closer to return Fehr hinted that the two sides are closer to announcing details on a World Cup of Hockey. There hasnt been one played since 2004 and the speculation continues to be the next World Cup could happen as soon as 2016. There was the usual playfulness between Bettman and Fasel. At one point Fasel said there is nothing like seeing the smile of a hockey player when he wins a gold medal. To which Bettman was quick to reply, "Except winning the Stanley Cup." Finally, Daly was asked about expansion. There was a recent newspaper story in Seattle that said the NHL has targeted the city for an expansion team. "I think whenever Im asked that question, I make the same comments," he said. "The Pacific Northwest, we think is a good hockey area. I think the Vancouver Canucks have done extraordinarily well in developing that area as a good hockey market. Doesnt mean were going to expand there, doesnt mean weve made any decisions in that regard. "I said the same thing about Quebec City. I also believe its a very good hockey market with a very strong and passionate fan base. So theres nothing more I can say on expansion than we did [at the NHL Board of Governors meetings] in Pebble Beach, which is at some point in time it might be an appropriate consideration for us to bring to the board. But we havent reached that yet."
