Let’s go over some news and notes:
- Nico Sturm only played two games for the Wild in the play-in series, but he still found a way to show encouraging flashes. [Hockey Wilderness]
- Centers, centers, centers. That’s all Wild fans talk about these days. But next season is going to be all about the wingers! [Zone Coverage]
Off the trail...
- Leon Draisaitl is the league’s MVP for the 2019-20 season. Must’ve been hard playing alongside Connor McDavid all year. [Copper And Blue]
- The Norris Trophy goes to none other than Predators defenseman Roman Josi. [On The Forecheck]
- And let’s not forget about the goalie! Connor Hellebuyck is taking home the Vezina. [Arctic Ice Hockey]
- But what about the Calder Trophy? That’s going to Avalanche rookie Cale Makar. Quinn Hughes couldn’t complete the upset. [Mile High Hockey]
- Still no positive COVID-19 tests! The NHL has nailed the playoffs this season. Very well done.
