Let’s go over some news and notes:

- There’s no reason to deny it. With the trade deadline quickly approaching, big changes lie ahead, and everyone knows it. [Pioneer Press]

- The Wild are pretty awful, so it’s a good thing Breezer’s around to make things a little less miserable.

Off the trail...

- It sounds like Dustin Byfuglien’s days with the Jets are coming to an end. Byfuglien and the Jets are evidently working on a mutual contract termination. [TSN]

- Why won’t Seattle’s NHL franchise be called the Sockeyes? Because Seattle Sockeyes is already the trademarked title of a series of romance novels. [The Athletic]

- Turns out Flyers mascot Gritty is innocent of punching a child. Good job, Gritty. [ESPN]

- Mark Pysyk, of all people, got a hat trick last night.
