Hey, it’s Monday.
The Leafs are playing the Islanders.
They just waived Dryden Hunt yesterday to bring Brodie back, or call Holmberg back up? We’ll find out! UPDATE: We did!

Kyle Dubas was out scouting two pretty bad OHL teams yesterday, in Mississauga and Niagara.

Neither team has many draft eligible prospects of note, so if I were to guess why he was scouting them I’d say it goes back to Kasper Larsen. He’s an overage defenseman who Toronto had at their camp this past off-season and seemed like a guy they might sign to an AHL deal, but he ultimately returned to the OHL for one more year.

If the reported TNT clause in Tocchet's contract is true that he had to give 4 weeks notice before leaving the network for a coaching job, then the Canucks potentially had this formally worked out before Christmas. https://t.co/Vm5JTMTFfZ— Sean Shapiro (@seanshapiro) January 22, 2023

The ambidextrous Bill Durnan - look at those oven mitts! Durnan was the last NHL goalie who had on-ice captain rights. He also won the Vezina 6 times.pic.twitter.com/0LWGTJFUU3— The Hockey Samurai 侍 (@hockey_samurai) January 22, 2023
