The NHLN Notebook is a semi-regular feature of interesting hockey content from the past few days that doesn't quite deserve its own article. 

In today's notebook, we look at Arizona possibly being on the move (again), Gary Bettman getting called out by Dr. Bennet Omalu who is the doctor that discovered CTE, and Bryan Bickell getting set to return to the NHL.

Winnipeg Jets goaltender Ondrej Pavelec will be sidelined for the next week with a lower-body injury, sources say. Since being recalled by the Jets in mid-January, Pavelec has posted a forgettable 0.88 save percentage over the course of eight games.
