In Red Wings Land
When I was putting this together, there wasn’t any Red Wings articles other than game previews, which will be outdated by the time you read this. So, here’s a short video of the Toast of Hockeytown event, one that looked like it would have been a lot of fun to attend, especially if you had the money to bid on items in the silent auction.
Around the NHL
Scott Cullen, as always, has some good information about the league. One of the topics is how rookie Mathew Barzal has started to open up a lead in the Calder race.
Barzal has been a difference-maker as the Islanders’ second-line centre, putting up stellar possession stats, and scoring better than a point-per-game, a feat that would put him in impressive company if he can maintain it through the end of the season.
The best photos from the Flyers’ OT win against the Leafs and Eric Lindros Night - Broad Street Hockey
Past and future Fer Sure guest Kate Frese is a phenomenal photographer. Here are galleries from the Eric Lindros number retirement ceremony as well as their game against the Leafs.
Even if you don’t care about either team, take a look through her game photos. I can never get over the color of her photography, the team colors just pop off the screen. She definitely deserves recognition around the league for her talent.
