  iCarly's Nathan Kress, Wife London Welcome Baby Girl Evie Elise: 'Can't Seem to Stop Crying' "My children are the greatest little gifts on the planet," says Nathan Kress, who is also dad to 3-year-old daughter RosieThe iCarly star, 28, and his wife London welcomed their second baby, daughter Evie Elise Kress, on Saturday, March 20, at 5:31 p.m., he announced on Instagram Monday, sharing photos of the newborn.

It’s the end of the line for Nathan Beaulieu, who underwent shoulder surgery Thursday and will not play again this season. The surgery was done to repair a torn labrum, and though head coach Paul Maurice did not give a timeline for his return, he did say that Beaulieu is expected to make a full recovery.

Beaulieu was playing with the injury this season but hadn’t suited up since exiting a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs in early March. In all, his year will end with 25 games played and just a single assist. Fortunately for the 28-year-old defenseman, his contract extends through next season so he won’t have to try and find work coming off a major injury.

NHL postpones Wednesday's Calgary-Vancouver game

  NHL postpones Wednesday's Calgary-Vancouver game The NHL has decided to ere on the side of caution as a result of Adam Gaudette’s positive COVID-19 test. Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reports (Twitter link) that tonight’s game between the Canucks and Flames has been postponed.  TSN’s Frank Seravalli tweets that the decision was made after more information has surfaced regarding Vancouver’s test results; that information obviously has not yet been made public.

Though obviously losing Beaulieu isn’t ideal, being able to move his contract—which carries a $1.25M cap hit—to long-term injured reserve does give the Jets a little more flexibility at the upcoming trade deadline. The team was already into its LTIR space created by Bryan Little, meaning Beaulieu’s number can just be added on top to give it more room for any additions.

Trade-deadline primer: Winnipeg Jets .
The 2021 NHL Trade Deadline is just hours away so it’s time to wrap up our look around the league with the Winnipeg Jets and where they stand and should be trying to do. © Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The Jets came into this season as a bit of a wild card team. Connor Hellebuyck gives them high-level goaltending while they bolstered one of the better top-six forward groups in the league.  There were questions surrounding the rest of the team but they’ve answered them nicely so far and are battling for home ice in the first round with a shot still at tracking down Toronto for first in the North.
