It’s the long weekend. There’s still nothing happening in the hockey world unless you have some leftover buzz from the Skinner trade. I can’t think of anything witty to talk about before getting to the links. Here’s our new kitty snoozing with our Shiba.
Recapping the T25U25
Last week we started our actual countdown in our top 25 rankings of players under the age of 25 in the Leafs organization.
We’ll continue our rankings next week. Spoiler: we’ll start getting into this year’s draft picks. BUT WHICH ONE(S)?!?! Take a guess and you’ll win 1,967 internet dollars, redeemable at any PPP internet franchise location.
Around the Hockey World
Fun little thing you probably wondered... what do NHL teams do with the hats thrown on the ice after a hat trick? Depends on the team it turns out. I don’t want to know what Calgary people do (or don’t do) with their hair that led the Flames to taking that policy.
What #NHL teams do with the hats that are thrown onto the ice following a hat trick - sharing this from @TheHockeyNews because I honestly didn't know all of these. I enjoy how some teams donate them to charity. pic.twitter.com/MIXGcawHFC— Melissa Burgess (@_MelissaBurgess) August 3, 2018
Meanwhile, about 20 years ago, a young Czech hockey fan dreaming of opening a restaurant or sports bar one day and had the question: “If every NHL team was a pizza, what would the pizza be?” I don’t see the Leafs here

Here we have Braden Holtby looking like a 45 year old Australian surfer.
Have a great long weekend everybody!
