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.

In breaking the rules of Fight Club, we’ll talk about Pension Plan Puppets’ “Project Mayhem” in which they seek to get Dany Heatley elected to the All-Star Game. The game is in Ottawa don’t you know. Yeah, we dig this kind of fan trolling. (PPP)

Speaking of All-Star vote campaigns, Rangers fans are backing up John Tortorella and trying to get Dan Girardi elected to the game. (New York Magazine)

Clarke MacArthur feels bad about scoring an own goal against Ottawa and owns it. (Toronto Sun)

The Kings are adding a Russian flavor by calling up Andrei Loktionov and Slava Voynov. (L.A. Kings)

Scottie Upshall is hurt a bit more than the Panthers hoped. (Sun Sentinel)

If Brent Sutter is going to get bounced in Calgary, could Craig Hartsburg make his NHL return there? (Senators Extra)

More Kings: They’re digging their fourth line options in L.A. hardcore now. (L.A. Kings Insider)

Ed Snider says the Flyers should retire Mark Howe’s number. He’s the boss so that means it’s probably going to happen. (CSNPhilly)

Shh… Cody Hodgson is playing pretty well in Vancouver. (Toronto Sun)

Kings and Ducks could both use a kick in the pants. Perhaps they’ll provide it for each other in their upcoming home-and-home. (L.A. Times)

Finally, Matt Read might be the Evel Knievel of goal scorers after potting this one on Cam Ward in a Flyers victory. Amazingly he went unhurt. (NHL)

    well it’s either Heatley, Cullen or Backstrom for the Wild making the all-star game… best chances are for Heater to make it.
