Kirk Luedeke once again has a review of the rookies.


  • There was a lot to like in what the Bruins rookies showed in games against the Devils and Sabres rookies, here's Kirk Luedeke's assessment of a few standouts.  [ScoutingPost]

  • The formerly "doughy" Frank Vatrano lit 'em up in the rookies' debut against the Devils rookies in the tournament opener.  [ScoutingPost]

  • Dennis Seidenberg answered in the German press for declining to play for Germany at IIHF Worlds (as he was still nursing a wrist injury) and for not bringing the Stanley Cup home in 2011. He sees a healthy Blue Jackets team as tough competition, and manages a shout out to Marco Sturm. (Google translation from German)  [Hockeyweb.de]

  • David Krejci would like to use the long summer as a springboard to a healthy and productive full season.  [ProvidenceJournal]

  • Bruins outlook: As goes the defense, so go the Bruins. Zdeno Chara will be the bellweather, and much depends on the young defensemen the team will rely on.  [CBSSports]

  • Jamie Langenbrunner will be the Bruins good shepherd to the passel of prospects that the team hopes will be their future.  [TheBostonGlobe]

  • Speaking of rookies, Panthers prospect Connor Brickley has a Bruins pedigree and ties to the University of Vermont. (GO, CATS, GO!) [SunSentinel]

  • Because the Czech Extraliga is nothing like the NHL, enjoy this musical post-game interlude with Yank Ryan Hollweg on guitar... (with video)  [BarDown]

  • Here's a profile of Raptor Rich Peverley upon his retirement. He still plays shinny, and participates in a rec soccer league.  [GreatestHockeyLegends]

  • How about a Senators v. Canadiens game on Parliament Hill in honor of the 100th anniversary of the first NHL game? [OttawaCommunityNews]
