Morning Skate: The shirtless Jumbo Joe Bobblehead we all need


Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while it seems like everything in this sports world is coming up Celtics.

*What do you get for the Jumbo Joe Thornton fan that has everything? How about the new shirtless Jumbo Joe bobblehead doll set for a San Jose game in March? Too bad it won’t be out in time for Christmas.

*Will Matthew Tkachuk get suspended for his sneaky spear while sitting on the Calgary Flames bench? I would say this isn’t even a debate. You can’t poke a guy with your stick from the bench, and you definitely lose the benefit of the doubt when you’re Tkachuk.

*Alex Ovechkin voices his support for all of the Russian Olympic athletes after the country has been banned from the Olympics due to their doping practices.

*It sounds like all is not right with Matt Cullen and the Minnesota Wild in a season that hasn’t gone the way either would have imagined.

*It sounds like Guy Boucher is getting awfully impatient with his Ottawa Senators players as the losing continues for them.

*For something completely different: This story about a service dog interrupting an NYC production of “Cats” when they got loose and starting chasing one of the actors in a cat costume? This is peak awesomeness.
