Islanders stuff (er, sorta)

  • Here's your TV schedule for the World Cup of Hockey that is still happening this September. [LHH]
  • Buy into the Matt Martin charity poker tournament and pal around with current Islanders. [Matt Martin Hockey]
  • Mathew Barzal was among the first to model Team Canada's new uniforms for the WJC and other tournaments. [Sportsnet]
  • As seen yesterday via EOTP honcho Marc, Anthony Beauvillier took a blow to the head in Team Canada's World Junior summer showcase game against Finland yesterday, but he seemed to be okay. Canada lost the game, 2-1.

Also,

  • Avalanche captain Gabriel Landeskog gets serious about concussions and urges the NHL to as well. [Players Trib]
  • Why isn't the NHL as creative as it used to be? Blame the 1996 Panthers, among other factors. [TSS]
  • The nuts and bolts of AHL contracts. [EOTP]
  • While P.K. Subban goes on a speaking tour of every city, town and village in Quebec and Tennessee, Shea Weber still hasn't checked out his new city at all. Hm. [PHT]
  • The Oilers hired some new front office dudes with connections to their old players. [Edm. Jour.]
  • So, like, who is actually going to watch this new Las Vegas team play live? [Review Journal]
  • Batten down the hatches: Trevor Gillies is back, this time with the Capitals ECHL affiliate, the South Carolina Stingrays.
