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.

It looks there won’t be any controversy surrounding St. Louis Blues top prospect Vladimir Tarasenko. He’s been dominant in the KHL, but has confirmed to GM Doug Armstrong that he will be in North America on Thursday or Friday. (Blues.nhl.com)

The lockout gave Dennis Seidenberg a chance to play with his brother, Yanick, in Germany. He enjoyed the experience, but he’s also excited to start the NHL season. (CSN New England)

37-year-old Brendan Morrison has gone from helping the players get a new CBA to looking for a job. It remains to be seen if the unrestricted free agent will find a suitor, but Morrison added that while he’d like to play, he’s not “absolutely dying” to do so. (Calgary Sun)

With the lockout over, Teemu Selanne is hoping that the Anaheim Ducks can pick up where they left off during the second half of their 2011-12 season. (Orange County Register)
