PHT Morning Skate: Where Schneider is ready to make the next step

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.

The Montreal Canadiens have traded Brendon Nash to the Florida Panthers in exchange for Jason DeSantis. The two teams reassigned the respective players to the other’s AHL clubs last week, so this announcement merely firms up the deal. (Sportsnet)

Cory Schneider feels like “it’s time to make that next step.” He’s projected to get a shot at serving as the Vancouver Canucks starting goaltender, but Vancouver still hasn’t traded Roberto Luongo and it’s not clear how the netminding duties will be split if he stays with the club. (TSN)

Edmonton Oilers forwards Ales Hemsky and Nail Yakupov might be ideal linemates. (Edmonton Sun)

Chris Bourque is getting a chance to earn a spot with the Boston Bruins as a third liner. (CSN New England)

Calgary Flames defenseman Brett Carson is trying to work through the challenge of getting noticed in training camp despite the fact that there will be no exhibition games. (Calgary Sun)

The Detroit Red Wings’ defensemen have big holes to fill, but they’ve also each been given a big opportunity to step up and assume greater roles. (Detroit News)

New Jersey Devils forward Jacob Josefson missed Monday’s practice for precautionary reasons. He missed his final two AHL games prior to the lockout’s end due to what is believed to be a sore knee. (The Bergen Record)

With blueliner Zach Bogosian injured, the Winnipeg Jets are likely to give Mark Stuart more playing time. (Winnipeg Sun)
