Your savory breakfast links:

Mattias Sjogren, take two. [CSNW]

● Previewing John Erskine's 2012-13 (and no, it's not "Sits at home watching NASCAR awaiting a new CBA.") [Peerless]

● We mentioned Matt Hendricks' "You Can Play" support yesterday, but are happy to give it a second day of coverage coverage. [Capitals, Ted's Take, WashTimes, NBC4 Washington, Puck Buddys]

● It's gotta be pretty sweet to win an award named after your grandpa, especially when it's for "outstanding service to hockey in the United States." So congrats to Dick Patrick - one of the most under-appreciated suits in the sport - on his this impressive honor. [Capitals (with killer pic), Dump n' Chase, Ted's Take, USA Hockey, NHL.com, SB Nation DC, PHT]

● The Caps are... hiring game night staff? Optimism! [NHL.com]

● It's been Tom Wilson's "dream to play with guys like Ovechkin and stuff." Oh, young Thomas... there aren't guys "like Ovechkin." But point taken. [Observer and Eccentric]

● Finally, more loomin' lockout links. Lovely. [WashTimes, CSNW, Puck Daddy]
