Morning Skate: Reaves clowns Kessel…and it's scary


Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while all of the NHL team Halloween party pictures are beginning to filter out through social media...Always good times.  

*In the spirit of Halloween, Pro Hockey Talk has Ryan Reaves scaring the crap out of Phil Kessel with a creepy clown mask in a classic prank between teammates, I'm just glad Kessel wasn't armed with any hot dogs that he could have used as weapons in a prank gone wrong.   

*Clayton Keller has been the rookie silver lining for an Arizona Coyotes team that has been absolutely dreadful to start the season.

*Carolina Hurricanes ownership is challenging any interested buyers to start coming up with the money as that franchise’s long-term future continues to be swirling.

*Things haven’t really changed for the Colorado Avalanche this season as they’re beginning to fade back toward the bottom in the Western Conference.

*How about those Vegas Golden Knights? They are off to a historic start as they continue to win as an NHL expansion team on their maiden voyage.

*Old friend Brett Connolly will miss at least the next couple of games after taking a shot to the head during his stint with the Washington Capitals.

*For something completely different: The "Shazam" movie is beginning to announce their casting choices, and they sound pretty good.
