Around the Horn
— Are the Philadelphia Flyers shopping for a pivot on the NHL trade market?
— NHL sources tell Montreal Hockey Now that goalie Jake Allen is on the NHL trade block, and the Dallas Stars are poking around. Montreal Canadiens talk.
— There’s a strong belief New York Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello has signed free agent centre Nazem Kadri and just hasn’t registered the deal. There could be four or more transactions coming down the pike. NYI Hockey Now has been breaking some stories.
— I still think the New Jersey Devils have an interest in acquiring Vancouver Canucks centre JT Miller.
From the boss at HQ, we echo:
With a heavy heart, the National Hockey Now family wishes to thank the Stelter family for sharing little Ben with the world. Ben Stelter was a constant bright spot during the NHL playoffs as the Edmonton Oilers super fan supported the Oilers’ first playoff run in several years. In getting to hang with his heroes, he became one. Ben passed away Wednesday at just six years old after fighting cancer for the last two years.
The world lost the most special boy and an absolute hero last night. Ben, you were the best son we could ever hope for and you were my best bud ever. Your sisters were so lucky to have you as such a sweet brother. You fought so long and hard and beat so many odds. pic.twitter.com/HWibnZKOxC
