Your links and open thread for Thursday morning.

George Parros was featured in a fantastic ESPN long form piece. It's a must read.

The Canadiens played the second part of a back to back against the New Jersey Devils and they once again pulled out the win. Andrew attributes it to Brandon Prust turning Cam Janssen's head into a punching bag (also available in gif form!)

I guess all that MMA training with UFC fighter Sam Stout paid off for Prust

Also theactivestick as always provided a humorous look at the game with her recent instalment of Top Six Minutes

On a lighter note Brendan Gallagher and Josh Gorges squared off in the next instalment of "The Duel" this time in a game of Connect Four

The Habs recently signed current Charlottetown Islander Jack Nevins to a three year deal

It's a bit late but Bulldogs Player of the Week is finally back!

Also getting paid is Wayne Gretzky... The NHL has reached a tentative deal with the Great One to repay him money owed by former Phoenix Coyotes owner Jerry Moyes

Team USA released their WJC camp roster

Three words: Teddy...Bear...Toss
