Boxing Day, early edition

A short (but sweet) Christmas break. Back at it in the morning. Some links that may help in the meantime:

The World Juniors begin Thursday. North Branford’s Adam Erne is a member of the United States team, and Yale assistant Dan Muse is video coordinator. Isles draft picks Adam Pelech and Griffin Reinhart are on Canada’s roster, and Ville Pokka is on Finland’s. Thursday’s USA-Czech Republic game streams live on according to USA Hockey at 11:30 a.m. Eastern, and it also airs live on NHL Network.

Elsewhere internationally: The Spengler Cup, this year featuring the Rochester Americans, begins Thursday in Switzerland.

In case you missed it (took me 24 hours): Yeah, so this is pretty much among the most ridiculous finishes to an NHL game I’ve ever seen.

And RIP, Edgar M. Bronfman Sr. and Mike Hegan.
