Happy birthday to the National Hockey League, certainly one of the hockey leagues of all time. The NHL was founded on this day in 1917, making the league 105 years old.
Nine games are on the schedule to celebrate, including the Vegas Golden Knights playing their second of a back-to-back against the Vancouver Canucks.
The Golden Knights are marketing tonight’s game all around their new reverse retro jerseys, which will make their debut for the first time this season. Here’s EYNTK about the reverse retros.

Clip of the Day: Marcus Pettersson tested his luck up against Nic Deslauriers, one of the toughest fighters in the league Friday night. Classic Penguins/Flyers, you love to see it.
