Your savory breakfast links:

  • You asked about Evgeny Kuznetsov’s future, predicting Ovechkin’s goal total next season and more, and we answered in the latest mailbag. [Rink]
  • The season may have ended too soon but Nic Dowd had a year to remember with new career highs across the board. [Rink]
  • It’s time once again to review each of the individual player performances from the past season, kicking off the report cards with Nicklas Backstrom. [Rink, RMNB]
  • And rounding out the trio of Nic(k)s, a review of Nick Jensen for the past season. [S&S]
  • The Black Girl Hockey Club has already done so much for hockey culture, and founder Renee Hess is up for this year’s Willie O’Ree Award (go vote!). So what’s next for the BGHC? [ESPN]
  • They may have bowed out of the playoffs early each of the last three seasons and the team’s core may be aging, but the Caps aren’t ready to go through a rebuild... yet. [NBCSW]
  • The Caps continue to lock up some of their prospects ahead of what should be a busy offseason, re-signing Axel Jonsson-Fjallby to a new two-year deal. [Caps]
  • Dmitry Orlov’s stellar 2020-21 season makes him the team’s defensive MVP. [S&S]
  • Happy 42nd birthday to Quintin Laing, happy 48th to Bryan Muir, and happy 29th to Conor Sheary.
  • And finally, it was three years and one day ago today that the Caps won the Cup. They were still celebrating the next day (and well beyond)... so you feel free to keep the parties rolling because being a happy hockey fan is a rare and wonderful thing.
