The Hockey Guy goes through the New Jersey jersey history going back even before New Jersey:
A TSN roundtable on racism with J.T. Brown, Matt Dumba, Blake Wheeler and Kurtis Gabriel:
TSN’s Bob McKenzie with a column on the importance of seeing and listening: “In these troubled times, I’ve heard over and over how important it is to find your voice; to speak out against racial injustice. To which I would only add, it’s just as important, if not even more so, to lend an ear; to listen.” [TSN]
Over at r/hockey, someone points out that the 2016 documentary Soul on Ice, a film on black hockey players, with interviews with P.K. Subban, Wayne Simmonds and other players, is available to watch on Amazon Prime. [r/hockey]
October is typically the highest scoring month on the league calendar. Will we see a lot of goals when the games resume later this summer? [Sportsnet]
