Here are all the links from around the hockey world, and what I’m reading, while doing that hockey, as Chance the Rapper would say.
*Interesting piece centered around former NHLer Riley Cote and his efforts to get hockey players to embrace cannabis over dangerous opioid painkillers. It’s interesting to hear about more hockey players using alternative methods for injuries and chronic problems given how addictive some of the painkillers can be over time.
*Interesting piece from FOH (Friend of Haggs) Mark Divver on Evan Gold, the Bruins' salary cap guru.
*A storybook ending for Brian Boyle continues as he scored again on Hockey Fights Cancer Night for the New Jersey Devils.
*Former Boston College standout Mike Matheson is finding his game with the Florida Panthers at just the right time for a hockey club that needs him.
*It looks like Carey Price is going to return for the Canadiens after a lengthy stay out of the lineup.
*The sad, downward spiral story continues for Mike Ribeiro continues as he was arrested for trespassing in Miami Beach this week.
*For something completely different: A woman died from a two-story fall after apparently trying to take a selfie. What is this world coming to?
