PHT Morning Skate: Russia earns first win vs OHL in Subway Super Series history

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.

After losing to the OHL 18 straight times, Team Russia finally got their first win over the league in the history of the Subway Super Series. (OHL)

Oilers head coach Ralph Krueger has been keeping an eye on Nail Yakupov‘s play in the KHL and has been very impressed. (Edmonton Sun)

Gabriel Landeskog was reportedly struck in the head by a puck during a recent practice with the Swedish team Djurgarden. He needed stitches, but thinks he’ll be able to play in the squad’s next game. (Denver Post)

Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell talked to young hockey players in his hometown of Port McNeill, BC about the importance of protecting their heads while playing. To that end, he donated Messier Project helmets. (Sportsnet)

Before the lockout, Ben Scrivens was projected to be the Toronto Maple Leafs’ backup goaltender. Now “he’s officially in a fight for the net,” according to AHL Toronto Marlies head coach Dallas Eakins. That’s quite the stumble and more fodder for those who think that the Leafs would be doing themselves a disservice by entering the season with a goaltending tandem of Scrivens and James Reimer.

Scrivens played between the pipes on Thursday following Eakins’ statement. The Marlies won the game, but Scrivens allowed four goals on 28 shots. (Sportsnet)
