Reading Assignments

  • Alex Ovechkin scored yet another hat trick. He is the first player in the NHL to reach 40 goals this season and has 14 goals in his last seven games. [NBC Sports]
  • Frederik Andersen is listed as day-to-day with a neck injury. He left Monday’s game against the Florida Panthers with a neck injury. [ESPN]
  • The Athletic has expanded on the player’s survey they did earlier this season. This season they have done them for individual teams and now NHL player agents. They answer who are the toughest GMs and rated Gary Bettman among other topics. [$TheAthletic]
  • The Rangers want as much for Chris Kreider as they got for Kevin Hayes last year. That means a player and a first-round pick. This and other trade targets are the target of this week’s Insider Trading. [TSN]
  • Cam Talbot is a goal away from joining the five goalies with career Gordie Howe hat tricks after his fight against the Oilers. [SportsNet]
  • The Winnipeg Jets and Dustin Byfuglien are nearing a mutual contract termination. This will end his grievance and the Jets suspension of the defenseman and would also make him a free agent. [NBC Sports]
