Did the hockey season start?

Yes. You may have been so caught up in the baseball playoffs or your fantasy football team that you didn’t realize another unending NHL season is under way. In their early going, traditional powerhouses – the Minnesota Wild, The Atlanta Thrashers, and the Columbus Blue Jackets – have come out strong.

For a season preview, check The Hockey News. They have also profiled this year’s rookies. The stolen Russian Evgeni Malkin is supposedly the next Alexander Ovechkin, and there are a few more players to watch. Speaking of Ovechkin, ESPN rounds up the sophomore class. Once you get into it, you’ll be making daily stops to Off Wing Opinion.
