Some highlights and takeaways here from Sunday camp activities: [NHL]

A storyline to watch: It appears that just one player on the roster has not received a COVID-19 vaccination. There’s plenty of speculation out there on the identity of this player, but here’s what’s been officially reported so far: “It is a prominent player on the New Jersey roster, not someone who is a prospect, likely ticketed for Utica in the American Hockey League or on a player-tryout contract.” [The Athletic ($)]

A new emphasis on … enforcing the rules!

Flyers forward Kevin Hayes will be playing this season with a heavy heart, following the death of brother Jimmy last month: “My brother was a special person. He touched a lot of lives. He really enjoyed life and really enjoyed helping others. It sucks that he’s gone. It happened way too fast.” [ESPN]

As he looks to lock up his spot with the Kraken, Nathan Bastian notes that he has checked the schedule: “I think I did well in New Jersey last year, but as soon as I got picked, and a schedule came out the first game I looked for was the game back there.” [Seattle Times]
