Morning Skate: Brodeur returning to Devils


Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I'm reading while the heat wave feels like it is almost over.

-- Interesting piece from Sportsnet about young NHL stars and the video game culture as Fortnite rages on with the kids. I don't play it. I don't get it. But it seems like it's pretty addictive to a lot of pro athletes in their 20's.

-- A comprehensive look at the defensemen situation for the Pittsburgh Penguins, and where guys like Kris Letang and Jack Johnson are going to fit in next season.

-- Martin Brodeur is returning to the New Jersey Devils in a Business Development Role after spending some time in management/coaching for the St. Louis Blues organization.

-- Apparently Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back Jalen Ramsey thinks that he could play in the NHL if he worked at it for six months. Okay then.

-- The Calgary Flames have signed defenseman Noah Hanifin to a six-year contract with training camp set to get started in the next couple of weeks.

-- For something completely different: This story about a man making threats to Boston Globe employees is dangerously crazy, as is calling the media "the enemy of the people."
