A good Thursday to all. My day started with taking my kid’s car into the shop to get an AC repair. $600. That ticks me right off, but as the saying goes, ‘what are you gonna do?’ I should have been a mechanic, not a sports writer. Let’s do some hockey notes, starting with one on the Colorado Avalanche rookie camp starting. Please click on them, as I need the money:

  • Yep, Colorado Avalanche rookie camp opens this morning at Family Sports Center. Schedule and roster here: (Colorado Hockey Now)
  • Still no official word on when regular camp starts, but I won’t be shocked if it’s on the 20th. Or the 21st. Or the 22nd. Somewhere around then.
  • Phil Kessel is looking trimmer in Vegas, as he starts his new life as a Golden Knight (Vegas Hockey Now)
  • Cam Atkinson calls “Torts Camp” torture but says it will build brotherly love with the Philadelphia Flyers.
  • The Columbus Blue Jackets are trying to tamp down expectations even with Johnny Hockey. He is not the messiah, apparently (TSN)
  • Elias Pettersson is vowing a better year than the last one with the Canucks (Vancouver Hockey Now)
  • Zdeno Chara visited the Boston Bruins practice facility the other day. Might he go back to the Hub of Hockey? (Boston Hockey Now)
  • Did 2022 Calder Trophy winner, Detroit Red Wings’ Moritz Seider, get shafted in the NHL Networrk Top 50 Players rankings?
  • Are the Blues still legit Cup contenders? (Hockey News)
  • There’s a new hockey documentary, about Minnesota high schoolers, that looks pretty good (ESPN)
