- Sounds like a contract extension for Sebastian Aho is coming, perhaps before the start of training camp. (Good timing for an article today, too. Stay tuned around noon.) [NHL.com]
- Petr Mrazek is looking sharp in his new team’s threads:
Poprvé na ledě v dresu @nhlcanes! Co vy na to? ⚫ ⚪. Příprava jde do finále a já se neuvěřitelně těším na tuhle výzvu. For the first time on ice in jersey @nhlcanes! What do you think? ⚫ ⚪. Months of hard work are getting closer to the end and I am looking forward to this challenge. : @photosekanina #hardwork #preseason #motivation #dailygoals #icehockey #hockeylife #nhl
- Former first-overall pick Bryan Berard is suing the NHL over brain injuries sustained during his career. [Yahoo Sports]

- Man...there’s really nothing going on. So...um...high school football starts tonight! Some good games too: Clayton at Garner, Wake Forest at Millbrook, Middle Creek at Rocky Mount (that one’s for Jamie), Knightdale at East Wake (that one’s for me since I’ll be calling it). If you’ve got nothing better to do, there are worse ways to enjoy your evening for $7 a ticket than supporting your local team!
