Morning, folks!

The Oilers have some deployment decisions to make regarding their top six forwards heading into their play-in series with Chicago.

Behind the music: why Cooper Marody released a tribute to friend Colby Cave.

The latest 31 Thoughts podcast spoke to Cincinnati Cyclones coach Jason Payne, one of the few Black coaches in professional hockey.

Given Canada’s restrictions on inbound travelers having to quarantine upon entry, Canadian teams — including the Oilers — are scouting potential US locations to hold camp as a workaround.

Cooper Marody’s tribute to Colby Cave, Agape (a-gah-pe), releases tomorrow. Stay tuned.
