Howdy everyone. The weekend is here!
THN has release its top 200 fantasy players for the upcoming season. I’m not sure if we do a fantasy league at Copper&Blue or not, but it might be something worth looking into now that the Oilers are good again. Spoiler alerta: Connor McDavid tops the list. (The Hockey News)
How unlikely is it that a player rejuvenates his career in his 30s? Well, if you like the Keg, you’ll appreciate lowetide’s bite-sized take on the matter. (Lowetide)
The Oilers have signed prospect Kailer Yamamoto to his three-year entry level contract. He’s a prospect that I think has a chance to have one hell of an impactful career. (Copper&Blue)
Jaromir Jagr is surprised at the lack of interest in his services. He acknowledges that he’s not who he once was but still didn’t think it would be this difficult to land a job. He has a backup plan with the 2nd tier Czech league team that he owns but would rather stay in the leauge. (TSN)
Copper&Blue’s top 25 under 25 has gone to schedule so far and yesterday was no different. Today I’ll be slapping one together in the afternoon and there will be another writer doing so this morning. Yesterday’s were William Lagesson and Dillion Simpson. (#21 and #20)
Enjoy your weekend!
