Your savory breakfast links:

  • Nashville prospect Luke Prokop made a courageous statement yesterday [NHL, The Athletic]:
  • With that step, Prokop becomes the first openly gay active player under NHL contract (which sounds like a lot of qualifiers, but they’re all important) - and immediately generated a ton of support from around the league. All good things. [NHL, Sportsnet]
  • We’re just a day away from the Seattle expansion draft, and plenty of people have already taken a shot at what that new Kraken roster might look like. [The Score, THW, USA Today]
  • There are plenty of top-notch centers available for Ron Francis to take a look at (and potentially swap for Kuznetsov...?). [NoVa Caps]
  • There were some raised eyebrows at the Caps’ inclusion of blueliner Trevor van Riemsdyk on their protected list - here’s why it was probably the right move. [NBCSW, WHN]
  • Finally, happy 32nd birthday to Ryan Stanton, and happy 71st to Terry Murray.
