Morning Skate: Jagr surprises “Traveling Jagrs” in Calgary

Share

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading while decidedly not wowed by the new Justice League trailer. 

 

*The video of Jaromir Jagr literally skipping to go meet up with the Travelling Jagrs in Calgary is a pure delight. 

 

*Not only does Nathan Walker become the first Australian to play in the NHL, but he scored a goal for the Capitals as well. 

 

*Tampa Bay Lightning forward JT Brown becomes the first black player to hold a silent protest during the national anthems with a fist raised in the air. 

 

*Looks like Will Butcher was ready to make a splash for the New Jersey Devils with an impressive opening night. 

 

*Another hockey season means another year of the Coaches Corner with Dandy Don Cherry. Here he is from Saturday night talking Chicago Blackhawks, and also giving the DeBrusk family a little love after Jake’s first goal on Thursday night. 

 

*For something completely different: For me this was just kind of “meh”, so that’s not a great sign for the movie.
