Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading while stretching the hockey muscles following a relaxing Labor Day weekend.
*Houston native Tyler Myers has an eye on what’s happening in his native city as he winds things up for another season with the Winnipeg Jets.
*PHT writer James O’Brien celebrates Labor Day weekend by pondering the hard-working defensemen in the NHL. I’d put Zdeno Chara in there given the kind of minutes he’s logging at 40 years old while still going strong. Some of those 30 plus minute nights he had during last spring’s playoff series vs. Ottawa were mind-boggling.
*How good are the Carolina Hurricanes going to be after all of their offseason changes? It remains to be seen once the pucks get dropped on the regular season.
*The evolution of Alex Ovechkin continues as he ages into a player looking for team-earned Cups more than personal glory.
*A number of the hockey-loving Canadian markets are going to get “The Athletic” treatment starting very, very soon.
*Congrats to former Bruins goalie Marty Turco on being named to the 2017 Michigan Athletic Hall of Fame class.
*For something completely different: Everybody can rest easy because the Eli Manning memorabilia trial has been delayed indefinitely.
