PHT’s Morning Skate takes a look around the world of hockey to see what’s happening and what we’ll be talking about around the NHL world and beyond.

Anaheim meets up with their favorite enemy Jordin Tootoo and they say they don’t want a grudge match. Tootoo going full Rorschach wouldn’t shock us in the least. “I’m not locked in here with you! You’re locked in here with me!” (OC Register)

Georges Laraque’s accusations about drug use in the NHL are a big deal. The Winnipeg Jets are picking up where Nancy Reagan left off in the 80s and just saying, “no.” (Winnipeg Sun)

Dan Paille is set to get surgery on his broken nose and cuts after taking a puck off his face. Even with a visor on he took a beating. Thank goodness he had one on. (CSNNE.com)

Maybe we should call out Dustin Penner more often. Penner had two assists helping the Kings beat the Preds 4-3. (NBC Sports)

The Caps and Rangers made a minor-league swap yesterday. If you’re into the AHL, get your fill on that. (Caps Insider)

Mark Howe is going into the Hockey Hall of Fame this weekend and Lance Hornby has a great take on his career. (Toronto Sun)

Jason Spezza is looking to bust out offensively for Ottawa. They’ll need all they can get out of their offensive super guy. (Ottawa Sun)

Flyers minor leaguer Marc-Andre Bourdon has an aspiring career as an 80s beat boxer as he showed off to Adirondack Phantoms radio man Bob Rotruck. Someone bring back the Fat Boys, they’ll love this. (Bob Rotruck)

Finally, did you ever think you’d see a spin-o-rama pass from Buffalo’s Paul Gaustad? Neither did we. (NHL)

    Goose was on fiyah last night. (Too bad I can’t say the same for our defense.)
