PHT Morning Skate: Matt Martin has fun with an unsuspecting fan


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.

After running into a fan wearing his jersey at the mall and snapping a picture on an escalator, Islanders’ forward Matt Martin met the fan and signed his jersey following New York’s 3-2 win Thursday. (Yahoo)

Editor’s Note: Pro Hockey Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting an $35,000 Fantasy Hockey league for Friday night’s NHL games. It’s just $2 to join and first prize is $3,000. Starts Friday at 7pm ET. Here’s the FanDuel link.

In the NHL these days players are being warned, fined and publicly shamed for diving/embellishment. Former Anaheim Ducks’ forward Dan Sexton, who now plays in the KHL, put on a good display of embellishment during a recent game. (Puck Daddy)

Video: Hansen collapses on bench after absorbing hard hit

Jannik Hansen

For a moment, it looked like Vancouver Canucks forward Jannik Hansen would be able to continue playing after absorbing a hard hit from Calgary Flames defenseman Dennis Wideman.

Hansen skated to the bench on his own strength, but it wasn’t long before he collapsed and his worried teammates frantically signaled for help.

You can see what happened below:

He was helped to the dressing room and kept out of the remainder of the game for precautionary reasons, per the Canucks’ Twitter feed. He was taken to the hospital and everything checked out, according to Canucks coach Willie Desjardins.

Although the circumstances and outcome of both incidents are significantly different, some will no doubt think of what happened to Rich Peverley earlier this year in relation to this incident.

Quick Hits: Heatley, Franson among notable IR placements

Anaheim Ducks v Los Angeles Kings

PHT already made note of some significant (and smaller) IR moves on Tuesday, but in a quest to graciously save you some clicks, here’s a collection of some of the other injured reserve placements of note. Some could be a pretty big deal, too.

(Note: this is a good spot to mention other IR assignments in the comments section if there are any important omissions.)
