Need further proof that sex doesn't end in middle age?

Meet two grandparents who claim an NHL franchise is responsible for ruining their love life.

Trina and Dino Adam are reportedly suing the Stanley Cup champion Los Angeles Kings after a puck struck the grandma at the team's Icetown venue in Riverside, Calif., which hosts recreational hockey and other fun events -- including the couple's granddaughter's birthday party.

TMZ was first to report the allegations in a suit claiming the injuries Trina sustained resulted in their love life all but disintegrating.

After taking a puck to the head, Trina was knocked unconscious, according to the report.

The suit alleges the grandma sustained a head injury causing nausea, dizziness, memory loss and more.

Trina even lost her balance in the weeks after taking a puck to the head, causing her to take a tumble that resulted in an injured wrist, according to the report.

In a bit of a twist, Dino now claims her injury has impacted him as well as he can no longer enjoy sexual relations with his wife.

Now, it appears he's eager to drop the gloves in an effort to punish the Cup champs.

HABS LOCK UP ELLER

The Montreal Canadiens and forward Lars Eller agreed to terms on a four-year contract valued at $14 million.

The signing avoids a salary arbitration hearing scheduled for Friday.

"We are very pleased to have agreed upon a long-term agreement with Lars Eller," Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin said in a statement. "He is an important part of our group of young veterans. He has a tremendous work ethic and a great attitude. He is the type of player you can rely on for his play at both ends of the rink.

"Lars can play big minutes against the opponents' top players and still be an offensive threat. We are confident he will reach his full potential and become an impact player who will compete at a high level for many years to come."

Eller, 25, had 12 goals and 26 points in 77 regular season games in 2013-14. But he was even better in the NHL playoffs as his five goals were second on the team to Rene Bourque's eight, and his 13 points trailed only defenceman P.K. Subban's 14.

BRUINS HIRE SACCO

The Boston Bruins hired former Colorado Avalanche head coach Joe Sacco as an assistant coach, the team announced Thursday.

Sacco, 45, spent the 2013-14 season as an assistant coach for the Buffalo Sabres. The former NHL forward served as the head coach of the Avalanche from 2009 to 2013 where he compiled a 130-134-40 record.

Sacco served two years as an assistant coach in the American Hockey League for the Lowell Lock Monsters (2004-05) and the Albany River Rats (2006-07) before becoming a head coach for the Lake Erie Monsters (2007-09).

In his playing career, Sacco skated in 738 NHL games in 13 seasons with five teams (Toronto Maple Leafs, Anaheim Mighty Ducks, New York Islanders, Washington Capitals and Philadelphia Flyers). He registered 94 goals and 119 assists for 213 points.

ISLES, POULIN AGREE

The New York Islanders and goaltender Kevin Poulin agreed to terms on a one-year, two-way contract, the team announced Thursday.

The signing avoids a salary arbitration hearing.

Financial terms were not released, but the CBC reported the contract will pay Poulin $650,000 in the NHL and $175,000 in the minors.

Poulin, 24, went 11-16-1 with an .891 save percentage and a 3.29 goals-average against in 28 games for the Islanders last season.

A fifth-round pick by the Islanders in the 2008 draft, Poulin has a .900 save percentage and 3.08 goals-against average in 49 career NHL games.

WARSOFSKY INKS DEAL

The Boston Bruins signed defenceman David Warsofsky to a one-year, two-way contract on Thursday.

Warsofsky's salary is worth $600,000 at the NHL level.

Warsofsky appeared in six games for Boston during the 2013-14 season, scoring his first NHL goal against the Senators in Ottawa on Dec. 28 and his first NHL assist on Feb. 8 also against the Senators.

Warsofsky skated in 56 regular-season games for Providence last year, registering six goals and 26 assists (fourth on the team) for 32 points with a plus-8 rating. He skated in 12 games during the Providence Bruins playoff campaign, registering two goals and seven assists.
