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.

Valeri Nichushkin is going to be GOOD. (Ultra IMG)

BizNasty got a 10 game suspension for leaving the bench to fight Jordan Nolan after Nolan’s hit on Rusty Klesla left the latter on a stretcher. (Puck Daddy)

Speaking of Nolan, looks like no suspension or fine is coming down the pipe for that. (Pro Hockey Talk)

Yeah, everyone has their rankings of wingers and centers, but what about the guys racking up the PIMs? (The Farm Club)

Very cool look at how hockey has grown in the United States over the last decade. (United States of Hockey)

The New Jersey Devils are hoping Jaromir Jagr can help mitigate the loss of Ilya Kovalchuk on the power play. They know they’re not getting late ‘90s Jagr, right? (Fire & Ice)

Turns out people don’t really go to Panthers games. Who knew? (Deadspin)

And finally, Drew MacIntyre’s mask apparently has a “My Little Pony”, a Care Bear (or the Charmin bear?), and Roo from Winnie the Pooh on his mask. Alright. (Reddit)
