ICYMI:

Francouz, Zibanejad, and Mangiapane named NHL 3 Stars of the Week Hockey Players Club Podcast Season 2 Episode 17 HPC Blog

Alex Ovechkin became the 8th player (naturally as the great 8) in NHL history to score 700 goals. Not only were the fans privileged to witness the historic goal, but the NHL also mic’d him prior to the game to capture his and his teammates’ reaction.

And Gretzky is pulling for Ovi to beat his record mark!

Adding to the crazy week in the NHL, Zamboni driver who doubles as an emergency backup goalie David Ayres was called into action for the Hurricanes against his hometown Maple Leafs. Initially allowing goals on his first 2 shots against, Ayres buckled down and recorded 8 saves for his first, and likely only, NHL victory. What a story.

This year’s NHL tradeline did not disappoint with a plethora of moves made around the league. The boys picked the teams they felt had the best deadline and those who stunk up the joint.

Louie DeBrusk interviewed his son Jake DeBrusk on air and shared a special father-son moment.

Josh Manson landed an epic flying haymaker directly to Tyler Myers’ dome. Old-time hockey for sure!
