Larkin, ‘star-studded’ lineup to honor Johannson in Stars & Stripes Showdown | Detroit News

Larkin spearheaded Sunday’s Stars & Stripes Showdown at Plymouth’s USA Hockey Arena, a charity game — and great opportunity for a no-hitting, fast-skating workout with drop-in team skates beginning soon — honoring Johannson’s impact on USA Hockey, and benefiting the Jim Johannson Legacy Fund of the USA Hockey Foundation and the Ellie Johannson College Fund.

Pretty cool what Dylan Larkin & co. are doing to honor Jim Johannson. The game is today at 2p ET and you can stream it for free if you want to watch.

Weekly Reader: Hayley Wickenheiser and the search for the NHL’s first female GM | ESPN

Pretty cool to see the Maple Leafs give Hayley Wickenheiser this opportunity. It would be even cooler if more teams followed their lead and hired women in front office and coaching roles.
