This seems bad:

Farewell, sweet prince:

Team USA GM John Vanbiesbrouck on Luke Hughes: “As soon as you’re picked at a high level in the first round (New Jersey Devils, No. 4 in 2021), other than the press and the media, nobody cares that you’re a first-round pick. They just want to know if you can play and I think that when it comes to his play, he’s a superstar.” []

Some pretty impressive work here:

“Kessel has been on the ice for more goals against than any forward on the Golden Knights (23), despite starting the highest percentage of his shifts in the offensive zone. Plus-minus isn’t always the best indicator for overall play, but Kessel’s team-worst minus-9 is telling considering he’s mostly played in favorable situations.” Is Phil Kessel’s 1,000+ game iron man streak going to come to an end with a healthy scratch?
