Hey all!

Today at 5:00 PM, the Minnesota will wrap up its Prospect Development Camp with an open scrimmage in front of fans. It's always fun to look at the future of your favorite team with some notable players making some noise. Alex Tuch, Jordan Greenway, Joel Eriksson Ek have all looked quite good, but even players like Sam Anas, Alex Petan, and Gustav Bouramman have been decent bright spots.

If you're going to the scrimmage tonight, try and hit me up! We should have a few of us down there, and it would be great to meet you in person.

For music, I've chosen a song I heard while mowing the lawn that I just jammed to. I'm coming back with the rock band Dead Sara. This band is super underrated and they just kill it. However, this song had so much to it that I couldn't get enough of.

Minnesota Hockey to Purchase 300 Sets of QuickChange Goalie Gear
Minnesota hasn't developed a ton of upper-echelon goalies throughout the storied history of hockey in the state. If I ask you to name one, who is it? Robb Stauber, right? Only 62 career NHL games... Alex Stalock, currently with Minnesota, is maybe the one recently that's had mild success in the NHL. Well, now Minnesota Hockey is looking to help that position along as it's purchasing a lot of goalie equipment. USA Hockey is putting the emphasis on the position and Minnesota Hockey will oblige. Exciting stuff!

Oh Noes! Patrick Kane had one of the best seasons for an American-born player, and somehow avoided sexual assault charges. This past season was difficult for him? When? It surely wasn't when the NHL celebrated him from the beginning to the end of the season with praise even after the garbage from last offseason. Tough? Please...
