Quick Strikes for Wednesday, October 23

  • Jonathan Drouin is the presumptive favorite for this year’s Calder Trophy, awarded to the NHL’s top rookie — but the Calgary Flames had their own dark horse candidate putting on a show in Johnny Gaudreau. [Flames Nation]
  • Bob Hartley, head coach of the Flames, decided to line match Joe Colborne against Steven Stamkos. This did not go well. [Matchsticks and Gasoline]
  • Did you know that Tuesday night in Calgary was only the fifth time in Tampa Bay Lightning history that the Bolts have gone an entire game without a power play opportunity? [Sports Talk Florida]
  • With the Lightning banged up a bit at forward, it’s a good thing Jonathan Drouin has stepped into the NHL and looked so at home. [Hooked on Hockey]
  • “This year isn’t about points for me … It’s about learning to play defense. I’m not going to get to the NHL on points alone.” Slater Koekkoek might be closer to the NHL than you think. [Bolt Prospects]
  • One of the biggest problems with last year’s underachieving Syracuse squad was a lack of quality veteran AHL depth. Jerome Samson — a six time 20 goal scorer in the AHL — changes that. [Syracuse Post Standard]
  • A scouting report from Quinnipiac vs. UConn, an ECAC matchup in the NCAA, featuring Lightning prospect Matt Peca. [SBN College Hockey]
  • Last night’s Toronto Maples Leafs vs. Ottawa Senators match-up was postponed due to shootings in Canada’s capital. [Silver Seven Sens]
  • The obscure hockey documentary that every American fan needs to see. [Huffington Post]
  • The Chicago Blackhawks teamed up with the Make-a-Wish foundation for one fan. [Sporting News]
