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 a brief jaunt with the St. Louis Blues, Martin Brodeur is hanging up his leg pads and taking a front office job. Let’s take a look at some of what’s been said and written about the departing legend in a special Marty-heavy edition of the PHT Morning Skate.
