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.

Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Nick Leddy exceled offensively last season, but he also ran into defensive problems. During the lockout, the 21-year-old honed his skills in the AHL and he’s been a big part of the Blackhawks’ 6-0-0 start. (CSN Chicago)
