Hot Links: Thursday, August 22

T25 U25 continues with Jujhar Khaira at #16, and #15 releasing after lunch (~1PM MST). Derick Brassard lands elsewhere, and a few more threads we’re following on this grey Thursday in the Windy Oil.

NHL: New York Rangers at Edmonton Oilers

Good morning!

A few minutes behind schedule, but we made it! Let’s keep it y-fronts today, and get you daily dosed ASAP.

Today’s bits of tid include:

The ongoing Top 25 Under 25 here at Copper and Blue, with Jujhar Khaira checking in at #16 before #15 releases later today.

The Oilers official site profiled Ethan Bear as part of their Roster Reboot series.

Derick Brassard did join a team in orange and blue, but it wasn’t the team we like. Unless Jordan Eberle’s trade and Mat Barzal’s goodness has made you an Islanders fan in recent years.

Not much else today, so let’s get to it. Happy Thursday.
