PHT Morning Skate: No choice but to embrace #DregerFace

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.

Frankly, it would be unprofessional to ignore the phenomenon caused by a photo featuring TSN’s Darren Dreger, which was originally posted by ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun. (This post’s main photo.)

Not too shockingly, the hockey masses flocked to Photoshop to place Dreger in amusing situations. The Twitter feed #DregerFace and Pension Plan Puppet’s comments sections are arguably the most comprehensive sources for ridiculous fun.

Things grew so large that the photo began trending on Twitter according to On Frozen Blog, with Dreger himself awarding the best PhotoShop to Fear the Fin’s Ann Frazier.

Now, onto other links:
