PHT’s Morning Skate takes a look around the world of hockey to see what’s happening and what we’ll be talking about around the NHL world and beyond.
Gary Roberts was a fierce player in the NHL and now that he’s done on the ice, he’s even tougher off of it with his BioSteel fitness camp. That got underway in Ontario this week with 50-plus players there. Maybe this year there won’t be stories about Nazem Kadri being out of shape! (Toronto Star)
Erik Karlsson is back in Ottawa and feeling chatty. (Senators)
Give it up for the smaller countries making progress in getting better at hockey. (Flames)
Remember Alexei Morozov? Martin Brodeur sure should, but he’s talking about his time playing in the NHL and Ilya Kovalchuk, too. (The Score)
Kari Lehtonen talks about how he has to get new pants because of the Stars’ uniform overhaul. Goalies, I tell ya. (Dallas Morning News)
Finally, for you video game fans out there EA Sports released the demo for NHL 14 today. Who needs sunshine and summer fun when there’s games to be played? (EA Sports)
