Your savory breakfast links:

  • The Bears raised their 2023 Calder Cup banner last night ahead of their season opener in Hershey…
  • …with a couple of familiar faces in town from DC for the night to get some shiny new jewelry:
  • And then the Bears, like their big brothers, proceeded to get shut out at home to kick off the season. Synergy! [Bears]
  • With Darcy Kuemper returning to the team after the birth of his first child (mazel tov, Kuemper family!), Clay Stevenson returned to Hershey and Aliaksei Protas came back to DC. [Caps]
  • A few leftovers from Friday night’s…whatever it was…against the Pens. [S&S (and again), NoVa Caps]
  • In a city of sports teams stuck in mid-to-bad, the Caps somehow remain as the District’s best hope for playoff contention. Which, uh. Yeah. [WaPo]
  • Andrew Cristall had himself a very strong first rookie and training camp, and has carried that momentum over to his stint in Kelowna. [NHL]
  • NPR caught up with goalie prospect Mitchell Gibson (and will be checking in periodically with him this season) – check out the first installment from his time at Caps’ rookie camp. [NPR]
