Let’s go over some news and notes:
- NHL fans are pretty confident the Wild are not going to qualify for the postseason. They’re not exactly wrong! [Hockey Wilderness]
- It’s Halloween. Things are supposed to be scary today. So let’s talk about Zach Parise’s start to the season, shall we? [The Athletic]
Off the trail...
- Dustin Byfuglien just had surgery on his ankle. He won’t be ready to play until the start of 2020 (if he even does come back). [Sportsnet]
- Some very sad news — Hockey Hall of Famer and former NHL executive Jim Gregory has passed away at 83 years old. [NHL]
- Possibly the hardest hit you’ll see all season. Holy mackerel.
