Quick Hits: The Man Wall Edition
In Red Wings Land
I asked Walman about this stat today. His response: "I think it's time to start putting respect on people's names." https://t.co/uVJCsGcqXJ— Max Bultman (@m_bultman) February 24, 2023
Walman also was asked about his contract status as a pending UFA, and said he'd leave that to Yzerman. "I think we're building something here, that's all I'll say."— Max Bultman (@m_bultman) February 24, 2023

Good for him.
Panthers’ Spencer Knight enters NHL player assistance program. Here’s what that means - Miami Herald
Out of respect for players’ privacy, the NHL does not announce specifics when players decide to enter the program. Knight is the third player to use the player assistance program this year. Detroit Red Wings left wing Jakub Vrana also spent time in the program and Nashville Predators forward Michael McCarron is currently in it.
Wishing him well.
