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.

Los Angeles Kings teammates Kyle Clifford and Trevor Lewis discussed dropping the gloves in an ECHL game to John Hoven of Mayor’s Manor, but judging by the box score, only Lewis fought on Friday. That’s a little disappointing, unless you’re Dean Lombardi. (Mayor’s Manor)

Justin Schultz scored his 18th AHL goal on Friday, leaving him just two away from tying the record for a rookie defenseman. It could be an interesting race if he needs to be at Jan. 12 training camp … (Edmonton Oilers Twitter feed)

    Do I really care! No. I just hope they can get a deal done sometime in the future.

    Wait is the NHL giving him back Seguin, Dougie Hamilton, Tukka Rask, and I think a few other Bruins prospects like Subban and Spooner or Knight?! 😉 because that’s the only way he will be a CBA winner :)

    No he’s a winner because he’s a crap GM and the NHL seems to want to encourage that for some reason? Hey, I know a kid who serves frys at Burger King that loves hockey. Maybe he could run a team into the ground and be praised for it too!!!
