  • After a WHL game, Tim Bozon gives a game puck to a 13-year fan who's also recovering from meningitis. [Leader Post]

  • Before coming to Montreal, Devante Smith-Pelly was also pursued by Boston GM Peter Chiarelli. Wow, even when we're not trying to pull one over Boston, we're somehow still pulling one over Boston. [ESPN]

  • P.A. Parenteau got medical permission to return to the team, setting this Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs as a tentative return date. [La Presse] (French)

  • Michael McCarron is living up to his first-round pick status, and he's focused on making a successful Memorial Cup run with the Oshawa Generals. [Hockey's Future]
