Then, we tackled the latest on plans to expand the NHL to Seattle or Las Vegas (or both!), through a recent interview between Jeremy Roenick and the guys at Puck Daddy, among other outlets, and shared our own thoughts about both cities, as well as Houston and Quebec City.
We gave a shout out to Lake Erie Monsters (AHL) goalie Calvin Pickard, who currently leads the NHL in save percentage (.936). That impressive number comes from his short relief stint with the Colorado Avalanche. Calvin played juniors with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL. #5 on that list is Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price (.927), who also played in the WHL, with the Tri-City Americans. A third shoutout went to Tampa Bay Lightning forward Tyler Johnson, who was named an All Star in just his second year in the NHL. Tyler was born and raised in Spokane and played juniors for the Spokane Chiefs of the WHL.
