The waiver wire was chock full of surprises which because of the pandemic are not really surprises. Corey Perry, Loui Eriksson and more are now floating in NHL limbo. (TSN)

Zach Whitecloud is growing his role with the Vegas Golden Knights this season, and it’s good to see for the young defenseman. (Las Vegas Review-Journal)

The Henderson Silver Knights have rounded out the coaching staff and are preparing to open training camp. (KLAS)

NHL

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)

The NWHL is going to bubble up for the season in Lake Placid, NY. (Sportsnet)

Tom’s Daily: Alex Tuch skates; Nick Holden gone; New Chance bobblehead; NHL season predictions; Larkin gets the “C” in Detroit and much more.

VGK

Alex Tuch remains day-to-day, but did skate yesterday and could be back for the season opener on Thursday. (CBS Sports)

Here’s why the Golden Knights were able to part ways with Nick Holden. (VHN)

COVID-19 is no joke, and the Vegas Golden Knights know you have to take it seriously. Hopefully the team stays away from the dreaded virus. (Las Vegas Review-Journal)

I’m a bobblehead guy. I have several bobbleheads that chronicle my journey through hockey and some others that are just a lot of fun to have. So I’m pretty excited to see this new one featuring Chance the Golden Knights mascot. (News3LV)

NHL

Everybody makes predictions this time of year, and ours will be coming soon. But for now, here’s NHL.com’s season predictions. (NHL.com)

Hockey Triple-Header? Hockey Triple-Header! Today is the day and NBC Sports has wall-to-wall coverage for its US audience today. (NBC Sports)

A total of 27 players on nine teams tested positive so far for COVID-19 out of 12,000 tests. Of course, the Dallas Stars were hit the worst having to reschedule the season opener. (Yahoo! Sports)

Dylan Larkin has been named the 37th captain in Detroit Red Wings history. The list is long and distinguished. (TSN)

Vegas Golden Knights History Marc-Andre Fleury

Tom’s Daily: Fleury and Lehner to split time; Roy ready to step into full time role; Dallas won’t start on time; Pittsburgh won’t have fans; more

VGK

It looks like Robin Lehner and Marc-Andre Fleury will open the season splitting time in the crease. That’s no real surprise here, as we’ve been talking about how important a two-goalie rotation will be now more than ever. (Las Vegas Review-Journal)

Is Nicholas Roy ready for a full time role with the Golden Knights? (Las Vegas Sun)

NHL

We knew this was going to happen. I talked about it in my Talking Puck podcast last week. We know the league is going to have outbreaks. But how much time will teams miss? How many games? Will a buffer week be enough to compensate? Probably not. The outbreak among the Dallas Stars (and now Dallas Mavericks of the NBA) isn’t getting better. Dallas won’t practice today, the season opening games have been pushed back, and who knows when they’ll actually get on the ice again. (Sportsnet)

Looks like the Pittsburgh Penguins are among the teams that will not allow fans, at least to start. (PittsburghHockeyNow)

Patric Hornqvist finally rolls into Florida Panthers camp. I know Patric pretty well from our time in Nashville, and he’s the guy you want in that room. Always excited to be at the rink, always willing to pay the price and lead by example. (FloridaHockeyNow)

How impactful will NHL taxi squads be? I think they’ll be more important than we know. These guys will be the difference between completing a season or not. And I think they should be expanded to 10 players, eight skaters and two goalies. (TSN)

Hockeyverse

I’m just seeing this after the weekend, but the San Jose Sharks have left traditional, over-the-air radio behind in favor of an app based streaming model. As a play-by-play guy you can probably guess where I stand on the issue and why I think it’s not good on many levels. There are advantages to the app for sure, and having it exist alongside terrestrial radio is the best of both worlds. Sharks fans – for the most part – are not thrilled. (SanJoseHockeyNow)

Jim Playfair’s son Dylan has become quite the actor. He’s starred in the Mighty Ducks and more recently in Letterkenny (which is hilarious if you haven’t watched it. But you do need to speak either hockey or Canadian.) Here’s a nice feature piece on the young actor. (Sporting News)
