  • If you haven't heard by now, Rene Bourque was traded to Anaheim for defenseman Bryan Allen. Catch the entire story here. [EOTP]
  • Allen will make his debut as a Hab this Saturday, versus the Bruins.

  • (French) Michael Bournival is recovering nicely after his injury at the Buffalo game and he has resumed skating in practice. He will still be out for the next one to two weeks. [RDS]
  • Some thoughts on the Hamilton Bulldogs' start to the season. Good at penalty killing, and not so good at everything else. [The Spec]
  • The Canadiens are on a constant search to be respected. [NHL]
  • Voting for the 2015 NHL All-Star game just opened! Let's get P.K. a trip to Ohio. [NHL]

  • A look at the Bourque trade from the other side - does Bourque have a place on Anaheim's lines? [Pucks of a Feather]
  • Jack Johnson, of the Columbus Blue Jackets, declared bankruptcy this October. When he was 21, Johnson parted ways with his agent and handed over financial control to his parents. Now, at the age of 27, Johnson has signed a financial surrender (despite carrying a $5 million cap hit). It's a sobering tale about mixing family and money. [The Columbus Dispatch]
  • Claude Giroux may or may not be injured, and so may or may not play on any given night. No one really knows. But he did take a limo from Philadephia to New York, which is exactly what I expected from Claude Giroux. [SB Nation]
  • A timeline of Pittsburgh Penguins players' health scares, starting with Toma Vokoun's blood clot and ending with Pascal Dupuis' blood clot. (but hey, at least no one has the mumps yet) [SB Nation]
  • Slava Voynov has been charged with a felony count of corporal injury to spouse. [The Score]
