Storm Advisory for December 13: NHL News, Rumors, Links and Daily Roundup

A small fraternity got bigger last night.

Jamie Kellner

Reading Assignments

  • There are almost 800 goaltenders who have played the position in NHL history. Just 32 have won 300 games, and Cam Ward is the newest inductee into that exclusive club. (We’ll have more on Ward’s accomplishment in About Last Night later today.) [Hurricanes]
  • Apropos with the Hurricanes being in Vegas: they’ve been confounding the bookmakers this season as well. [Tragically Hipchecked]
  • Condolences to the family of former Whalers defenseman Zarley Zalapski, who died yesterday at age 49. [Global News,]
  • Zalapski was part of the 1992 heist trade that sent Ron Francis to the Penguins, and that earned him a spot in Jamie’s contribution to the Puck Daddy A to Z series in 2015. [Puck Daddy]
  • Rob Vollman ranked each team’s goaltending based on save percentage. The Canes aren’t as far down as you might have thought. [Hockey Abstract]
  • And to that end:
  • Friedman’s 31 Thoughts includes a goaltending award for Scott Darling. Really. [Sportsnet]
  • Trigger warning: here’s this month’s Eric Staal Renaissance piece. []
  • With the franchise purchase and relocation merry-go-round finally slowing down, where does that leave Seattle, Houston and Quebec City? [Sportsnet]
  • And finally, this is a real piece of work. (Note the date on the column, and keep in mind that Tom Dundon’s purchase agreement was made public on December 7.) [Elkin Tribune]
