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.

You might say that “frustration” is the most dominant word being used in the Blackhawks locker room. At least amongst words we can print here anyhow. (CSNChicago.com)

Meanwhile where times are happier in Detroit, Johan Franzen is getting pranked by teammates, namely Darren Helm. (Detroit Free Press)

It’s looking like Andy Sutton won’t be on the trade market at the deadline this year either as he’s close to signing an extension. (Edmonton Journal)

Ilya Bryzgalov is sick and not playing but he has no idea what it is that’s making him ill. The germ universe is so “humangous big” after all. (CSNPhilly.com)

Losing and falling out of the divisional race shouldn’t be anything new to the Winnipeg Jets (coming from Atlanta and all) but they’re not handling it well. (Winnipeg Sun)

Andy McDonald‘s first game back was a good one as he earned an assist in a 3-0 Blues win over San Jose. (Post-Dispatch)

Quebec City’s case for landing an NHL team one way or another is a curious one. (Ottawa Sun)

Just in case you were wondering, Ales Hemsky isn’t dead in Edmonton, he’s just having a bad season. Heavy stats talk ahead. (mc79hockey)

Lubomir Visnovsky fought last night and it was his first fight ever in the NHL. That might explain why he didn’t have his jersey tied down and got kicked out of the game. (OC Register)

Finally Corey Perry‘s hat trick against Columbus last night was impressive in that he only needed two periods to finish it. (NHL)
