NHL Roundup: Your Morning Links


Welcome to your NHL Roundup, where we provide you with your Morning Links from around the NHL.  The action on the ice may be over but there is never an off-season off the ice.

*shameless plug* Yours truly is going to be writing about the Avs over on a new site (here, too) in December. Check it out; big things are expected. (Puck Rant)

The verdict is in and Buffalo Sabres enforcer John Scott will get seven games for his illegal hit to the head on Loui Eriksson. (Puck Daddy)

Semyon Varlamov had his court hearing yesterday where his judge set his bond at $5,000, imposed a restraining order and gave him permission to travel. (Denver Post)

Montreal re-upped defenseman Alexei Emelin to a four-year, $16.4M. I don’t know much about Emelin other than he mashes people good. Real good. (Habs Eyes on the Prize)

Iggy’s still got it. (YouTube)

When I see these, I get really jealous but then lose the desire to want to do this and just admire the person’s work. (Imgur)

And finally, happy Halloween from Thomas Greiss. (Reddit)
