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.
The Los Angeles Kings have enjoyed tremendous success in recent years. The next step for them is to turn that into a sustained winning culture. (Los Angeles Times)
Even in Edmonton’s 7-2 defeat in a prospects game, 19-year-old forward Jujhar Khaira managed to make a good impression. (Edmonton Journal)
Philadelphia Flyers forward Marcel Noebels, 21, knows that he probably won’t make the team’s opening game roster, but he’s hoping that a strong showing in training camp will lead to him being one of the first players Philadelphia calls up. (CSN Philly)
At the age of 21, Calgary Flames forward Max Reinhart is a seasoned veteran compared to the players that attend rookie camp and he’s trying to help out some of the team’s younger prospects. (Flames.nhl.com)
There’s a number of big questions surrounding the Ottawa Senators going into the preseason. (Ottawa Sun)
Nashville prospect Seth Jones had a strong showing in the Predators’ 8-4 victory in a rookies game against Florida. The Panthers are among the teams that passed on Jones, which allowed Nashville to select him with the fourth overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. (Predators.nhl.com)
Here’s an easy way to remember how to spell Shayne Gostisbehere’s maddening last name (and even his first name can trip you up).
Ghost-is-be-here, without the h.
Not too bad, right?
If you’re more of the slogan type, it’s getting to be the point where “Tough to spell, tougher to stop” may be a pretty good one-liner.
The Philadelphia Flyers phenom has made a habit of scoring overtime game-winning goals on the power play lately. Friday’s version was the decisive tally in a 3-2 OT win against the Nashville Predators, which you can watch up top.
As you can see in comparing that goal with the one below (which made the difference against the Carolina Hurricanes), opposing coaches may want to make it a point to emphasize stopping this setup, even if it means writing “Don’t let that Ghost kid free.”
All three of his goals are on the power play so far.
Will he breathe life back into the Flyers’ man advantage at this rate?
The goalie interference penalty called on Brad Marchand late in Friday’s Thanksgiving Showdown didn’t sit well with the Bruins.
Marchand, whistled after making contact with New York’s Henrik Lundqvist midway through the third, said he thought “it was a bit of a weak call,” adding “[Lundvqist’s] out of the crease, and he lightly gets touched.”
While Marchand took issue with the call, his head coach took issue with King Henrik.
Julien on Hank: "I know he does some acting on the side, but it doesn't need to be on the ice." #Bruins
