- Alex Ovechkin might not want to talk about breaking Gretzky’s record, but the rest of us do. [ESPN+ ($)]
- Beck Malenstyn, who missed all of last season with an Achilles injury, is willing to do whatever it takes to get to the NHL. [NBCSW]
- This take is nothing new but it bears repeating: Tom Wilson needs to limit his penalty minutes. [S+S]
