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

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