Reading Assignments

  • Remember the NHL Network’s Top 20 Forwards with Jeff Skinner somehow behind Artemi Panarin? Say hello to a Top 20 Defensemen list with no mention of Jaccob Slavin or anyone else on the Hurricanes roster:
  • Julien Gauthier had himself a season last year in the QMJHL:
  • A couple of Canadian signings: Connor Brown somehow gets $2 million a year from the Maple Leafs... [Sportsnet]
  • ...and Matt Hendricks moves from Edmonton to Winnipeg because Paul Maurice needs some more #grit. [Winnipeg Free Press]
  • Kasperi Kapanen is changing numbers this season, so any of y’all with Sami Kapanen jerseys can go ahead and pull them out of the mothballs and go with the hipster look. [Pro Hockey Talk]
