Tom’s Daily: Peyton Krebs is off to a hot start with Team Canada; VGK music director says goodbye; Hoffman signs PTO with Blues; Senators make more moves.

VGK

Top Vegas Golden Knights prospect Peyton Krebs is off to a hot start with Team Canada at the World Junior Championship. Krebs has two goals and an assist in two games so far. I’ve been saying he’s got a shot at making the roster straight out of camp this year since he joined the Golden Knights in the bubble. I feel even stronger about it watching Krebs at the WJC. He appears to have grown physically, and he’s only going to keep learning. Look out for this kid. (Sporting News)

The Vegas Golden Knights and Las Vegas Raiders music director Jake Wagner is saying goodbye. If you’ve ever rocked out to or danced along with a song at a VGK game, he’s the guy who got you moving. (Las Vegas Review-Journal)

NHL

It sounds unusual, but top free agent Mike Hoffman has signed a PTO with the St. Louis Blues. Why? Because the Blues won’t have room to officially sign him to a one-year deal until they move Vladimir Tarasenko and Tomas Steen to LTIR before opening night. Details are in the article. (Sportsnet)

The Ottawa Senators keep making deals, this time with the Tampa Bay Lightning. (TSN)

It seems like the Pittsburgh Penguins are in an odd spot. One would think they want to load up for another run with Sidney Crosby and Evegeny Malkin, and they have hoarded some cap space. Will it happen? (PittsburghHockeyNow)

On the heels of the sad and scary news that Henrik Lundqvist won’t play this year because of a heart condition, the Washington Capitals have inked veteran goaltender Craig Anderson to a Professional Tryout agreement ahead of camp. (Sportsnet)

Speaking of goaltenders on a PTO, Scott Darling is on the same deal with the Florida Panthers (FloridaHockeyNow)

According to TSN’s Frank Seravalli, Canadian teams will actually fly less this year. The more you know. (TSN)

Pierre-Luc Dubois scored last night, but he also didn’t play very much. Columbus Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella has denied benching him. Either way, this looks like two semi trucks headed right at each other. Not good. (TSN)

What is the trade market like for Dubois anyway? Lyle Richardson took a good look at it. (Spector’s Hockey)

Colorado Avalanche forward Matt Calvert wears a pink visor. Here’s why. (ColoradoHockeyNow)
