Off the trail...

  • The passing of Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek is a tough one to swallow for those who have grown up with his broadcasting career and enjoyed his legendary status as the trivia show’s host. But his special connection to the sport of hockey is one that will be cherished. Here are some key links to recognize his impact on the sport: Dave Stubb’s NHL dot com column, a look into his appearance during the NHL Draft for the Ottawa Senators on Sportsnet, an outpouring of hearts from global hockey personalities on NHL dot com, and on CBC, a look into how sports and Trebek have been connected from the start.
  • The Dallas Stars have re-signed RFA Roope Hintz, their final roster player that needed a new contract after appearing in the Stanley Cup Final. [Defending Big D]
  • Toronto Maple Leafs star and fashion-forward man, Auston Matthews, has made a bet. He will shave off his infamous moustache if he raises $134,000 for Movember.
  • The Winnipeg Jets have locked up their 2020 first-round pick in Cole Perfetti to an ELC. The winger had 111 points in the OHL last season and was taken one spot after the Wild selected Marco Rossi with the ninth-overall pick. [NHL]
