Around the NHL
The Sporting News: “Auston Matthews” Rapper SVDVM On Hit Song, Maple Leafs Fandom HIT ‘EM WITH THE FOUR LIKE AUSTON MATTHEWS

Copper and Blue: Oilers Top 25 Under 25 #25, Bogdan Yakimov He’s large! He’s a centre! He can’t skate! Wait, that last thing is bad.
Arctic Ice Hockey: Jets Top 25 Under 25 #23, Logan Stanley When the Jets drafted Stanley in 2016 our overlord Scott Wheeler tweeted “The Winnipeg Jets just moved up to take a player whose ceiling is as a third pairing defenseman.” The Jets fans did not like it!

Broad Street Hockey: Flyers Top 25 Under 25 #19, Alex Lyon Lyon came off an impressive college goaltending career, but has struggled somewhat in the AHL.
The Hockey News: How Does Crosby Measure Up To The All-Time Greats at 30? This is a simple look-at-the-hardware evaluation, but Sid sits comfortably in the top five all time. Gotta wonder how much closer he could have come to Gretzky if he’d been healthier, though.
