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.

Ryan Kesler and Kevin Bieksa decided to do things a little different and referee a street hockey game in Vancouver. Any diving calls to be made there? I’m in it for the irony. (Vancouver Sun)
