FTB: Get hyped for hockey again

New, comments

The NHL season will start up sooner than you think.

It’s peak summer and hockey seems so far away. One of our loyal readers has made something to help you get through these dog days of summer:

It’s actually not that far away to hockey time. The Rookie Showcase games are in only three weeks, though if you haven’t heard yet it will be in Laval this year instead of at Ricoh Coca-Cola Coliseum.

Enjoy the rest of your summer as it will be over in the blink of an eye. And there’s no better way to enjoy it then with us! You can look forward to our meetup on Saturday August 25th! The details of precisely what time of day, and where in Toronto are still being worked out. Suggestions for a place for food and drink are welcome in this thread.

Our Top 25 Under 25 series will continue today at 9:00 a.m. with a player who may make his NHL debut at some point this season, but you likely have not seen outside of a few Marlies games. You know it’s not Calle Rosen as we had him on the board yesterday at #14.
