Morning, folks!

First and foremost: Happy Kawhi Day. On this day last year, Toronto Raptors mercenary Kawhi Leonard hit a game-winning shot at the death of game 7 against the Philadelphia 76ers, sending Ben Simmons back to whichever Kardashian, and Joel Embiid into therapy. It’s hard to believe that was only one year ago. It feels like an epoch.

The AHL officially canceled the remainder of their 2019-20 season yesterday, leading to speculation about whether the NHL will soon follow suit.

Ken Holland spent aggressively to bring Andreas Athanasiou into the mix last season. The landing was a bumpy one, but he showed flashes here and there. Can he help the Oilers next season? At what cost?

SBNation, the umbrella under which we NHL blogs congregate, is currently re-racking the 2015 Draft. So, you know what that means: Connor McDavid at 1OV. Again. To us, here in Edmonton.

With the NHL still looking to return to action to finish the season at some point, Bill Daly spoke to 630 CHED to talk logistics.

Riley Sheahan did a job for the Oilers last year. Does he have a home on the roster next season?
