The National Hockey League's mediation committee ruled Wednesday that Esa Tikkanen's contract with the Edmonton Oilers is invalid and the Finnish forward will become a free agent Saturday. Tikkanen's agent, Rich Winter, said the committee agreed the contract was invalid because of a clause that would tie Tikkanen to the Oilers for one more year. The standard NHL contract entitles a team to retain a player's rights, without a new contract, through an option year, provided that the player's salary is increased by at least 15%. Winter, who became Tikkanen's agent during the season, successfully argued that a clause had the effect of extending the life of the contract by one year, thereby also extending the option season by a year.

Craig Janney finally found someplace to hide from Esa Tikkanen early Wednesday morning--a hospital bed. Still, the way the Edmonton Oiler wing shadowed the Boston Bruin center throughout Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals Tuesday, Janney could almost imagine Tikkanen showing up as a volunteer nurse. Janney was sent to Massachusetts General Hospital, suffering from dehydration, after playing in the longest game in the finals, a 115-minute 13-second, three-overtime marathon won by Edmonton, 3-2.
