Morning Skate: Jagr surprises "Traveling Jagrs" in Calgary

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. 

Morning Skate: Jagr still going, but not in the NHL

Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while welcoming Marcus Smart back into the fold. Good contract for a guy that’s probably worth more to the Celtics than he would be to just about anybody else.

*It looks like Jaromir Jagr will play some hockey next season, but it also looks like it won’t be in the NHL for the surefire Hall of Famer.

*A list of the greatest NHL players to wear each jersey number with a good idea who the choices would be for No. 77 and No. 4…at the very least. This is a good companion piece to the list that we just put out for the best Bruins player to wear each jersey number that the team ever issued.

*The cyberbullying case between Melina Karlsson and Mike Hoffman’s girlfriend continues with more legal filings as both sides attempt to find out the truth.

*Pro Hockey Talk has an entertaining, wide-ranging Q&A session with PK Subban about any number of topics involving the Nashville D-man.

*Da Beauty League is once again getting into full swing in Minnesota for many familiar NHL players looking to stay in skating shape.

*For something completely different: The 2018 TV season hasn’t been good for new hit shows in their second season.
