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.

The Columbus Blue Jackets were excited to brag about their (Ricky-Williams-type-trade-proof) 2012 first-rounder Ryan Murray’s strong start in a WHL game last night. Unfortunately, they might have jinxed the Everett Silvertips because they went from a 6-3 lead to losing 7-6 via a shootout. (CBJ feed/game recap)
