I don't think there will be any players wear 13 either.
How could I forget? Must be in denial that Mats is gone...#13...Yeah, that one comes off the list too.

I believe the All-Star game was created to help Ace and his wife after his injury. He didn't die while playing for the Leafs, but was severely injured after a hit from behind by Eddie Shore. He hit his head on the ice and it was thought that he would die, however he pulled through but never played hockey again. The hit happened in 1933, he passed away in 1992- 59 years later.

There were quite a few of these All-Star benefit games. Hod Stuart was the first - he died in 1907. Ace Bailey, Howie Morenz, and Babe Seibert all had games in the 30s.

The current format of yearly All-Star games were not introduced until after World War II. Once it was a yearly event, they still changed the format quite a bit - First Team vs. Second Team, Stanley Cup Champion vs. All-Stars, Conference vs. Conference, North America vs. Europe, etc.

I'd take Letang > Karlsson

Plays with an edge, and can play on the PK.

after watching that lethbridge highlights he was all over the place. Scored a goal, he set up a breakaway he beat like 5 people to the puck to have another breakaway. Kid is going to be really good.

The kid's obviously got all the physical tools to become a star player; but what's really exciting about him is his hockey IQ, and willingness to put in work to succeed. He would look great with an A on his leafs jersey down the line.

Thanks for posting that! I watched his highlight goal but didn't feel like watching MJ whole highlight so skipped some parts. Missed the long pass

That first chance he did a great move to get a great scoring chance but it looks like it ends up being a 2-1 the other way right after. His teammates need to learn to back check, and if they don't, Rielly needs to be able to read the play and not go so deep with the puck in case it gets turned over. I'm just being nit picky here, overall it was a fantastic game for him by the looks of it.

the first highlight is such a gutsy toe drag on the blue line. Looked sick, but I don't think we'll be seeing that kind of move in the NHL

the actual goal was a greasy one. Rielly and 2 other warriors just jamming away, but the lead up to the goal was all Rielly.

pulled the puck out of a scrum around the blue line, toe-dragged past a raider and just exploded toward the center of the ice. looked for the shot but didn't have a lane so he ended up taking it around the net and tossing it in front before everyone started jamming away.

i haven't been this impressed by a d-prospect's skating since fowler.

Here's a sportsnet video about Morgan doing his part to help in a "Stick it to Cancer" drive in Moosejaw. Seems like such a mature kid.

Well at least he can play on the PK, unlike some D men

I suppose it's not that surprising he's beating his pace from last season's 18 games... but it's still noteworthy. This is great news!
