  NBC SPORTS BOSTON: Bruins center Patrice Bergeron will skip his club’s nearly two-week trip to China later this month as he continues to recover from offseason groin surgery. Bergeron said his goal is to be fully healthy in time for his club’s season opener in Washington on Oct. 3. 

SPORTSNET: Gare Joyce looks at how offseason conditioning played a significant role in Colorado Avalanche center Nathan MacKinnon’s breakout performance last season.

TSN: St. Louis Blues forward Robby Fabbri is eager to get his NHL career back on track after being sidelined for nearly 20 months with consecutive tears in the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. 

DAILY HIVE: Veteran NHL defenseman Kevin Bieksa is still looking for a place to play in the coming season. Barring a late offer, he could face the possibility of accepting a professional tryout offer. 

OTTAWA CITIZEN: Court records reveal how Monika Caryk, long-time partner of former Ottawa Senators winger Mike Hoffman, has attempted to clear her name over accusations of cyberbullying against Melina Karlsson, wife of Senators captain Erik Karlsson. 



  1. Bruins can’t win without Bergeron he is absolutely the straw that stirs the drink. Bergie does it all when their down two men who’s on the ice when they need a face off win Bergeron is taking it. Offensively he is also good scores big goals plays the power play and it helps when you start with the puck. Get healthy and make a run at Lord Stanley.

    • That’s funny apparently you have zero clue they won the whole time he was out last yr

  2. Nathan McKinnon training with Crosby in the offseason helped improve his performance for the season? Of course it did. Look at what it did for that little rat Brad Marchand. When you are the best player in the world and you still train harder than anyone else every player should be begging Sid to train with him. Unfortunately it seems like he only wants to train with players from NS.
