  • Philadelphia Flyers left winger Scott Laughton plans to take a stance against the NHL. In a memo the league sent to teams, it said it will no longer permit players to use rainbow Pride tape on their hockey sticks during theme celebrations this season. Laughton, 29, disagrees with the stance. [Philadelphia Flyers]
  • Boston Bruins defenseman Brandon will not face any discipline for what Chicago Blackhawks head coach Luke Richardson called a ‘blindside hit’ in the Bruins 3-1 win Wednesday night.. [Boston Bruins]
  • It’s coach Mike Sullivan’s fault. It’s the DNA of the team that won’t play defence. It’s Kris Letang’s fault. And it’s Jeff Carter’s fault. The external noise surrounding the Pittsburgh Penguins’ opening night loss to the Chicago Blackhawks was replete with dismay and disbelief. Perhaps that should be expected for a team that coughed up 22 leads last season and began a new season in an old way. [Pittsburgh Penguins]
  • Brett Howden has been suspended for two games by the NHL Player Safety Department for his illegal check to the head of Seattle’s Brandon Tanev. The Vegas Golden Knights defeated the Seattle Kraken 4-1 on the team’s Stanley Cup banner-raising ceremony Tuesday night at T-Mobile Arena. Brett Howden received a match penalty for illegal head contact to Brandon Tanev with 14 minutes remaining in the third period. [Vegas Golden Knights]
  • In the Red Wings’ seven-man defensive corps, there’s bound to be an odd man out. Olli Maatta will be the first blueliner to sit out after coach Derek Lalonde confirmed he will have 18 skaters tonight. [Detroit Red Wings]
