Bill Daly on NHL's position on Russia-born plyrs & their day w/ the Cup this summer: "We made both clubs aware ... the Cup isnt going to RUS or Belarus. We may owe a Cup trip in the future. That can happen just like we've done w/ the pandemic, but it's not happening this summer."— Mike Morreale (@mikemorrealeNHL) June 15, 2022
8. Marco Kasper, C, Rogle (SHL): Hard not to like a guy who plays such a well-rounded game, but is also willing to do whatever it takes to continue improving.
There you go. There’s the guy. Book it.

Also, Kasper is Austrian. Don’t beat me up in the comments over the Swede thing in the title. He plays in Sweden.

“Has a very good stick” is a good one for Kasper.
