PHT Morning Skate: Where Siri seems to think Alfredsson is God

Daniel Alfredsson

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 Edmonton Oilers have made Ryan Whitney a healthy scratch for two straight games. Given that he’s in the last season of his contract anyways, is it reasonable to assume that the 29-year-old defenseman will be on the trade market in the coming weeks? (Sportsnet)

Evidently, Apple’s Siri thinks Daniel Alfredsson is God. (Ottawa Sun)

Did the Colorado Avalanche go after Edmonton Oilers rookie defenseman Justin Schultz when he was an unrestricted free agent? Given the Avalanche’s lack of offensive output from their defensemen, they could certainly use a guy like Schultz right now. (Denver Post)

28-year-old forward Daniel Carcillo (knee) is getting close to returning to the Chicago Blackhawks lineup, but will he go back to playing on the top line when he’s healthy? (Chicago Sun-Times)

The British Columbia Hockey Hall of Fame has added retired stars Mark Recchi and Paul Kariya to its ranks. (NHL.com)

The Pittsburgh Penguins are having trouble finding a suitable linemate for forwards Evgeni Malkin and James Neal. (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review)

22-year-old defenseman Jake Gardiner had seven goals and 30 points in 75 games with the Toronto Maple Leafs last season. However, he’s still in the minors after recovering from a concussion and it’s not clear when the Maple Leafs will summon him. (Sportsnet)

19-year-old defenseman Dougie Hamilton has no points and a minus-three rating in the Boston Bruins’ last six contests. That slump might be disappointing after his hot start, but Bruins coach Claude Julien expected the rookie blueliner to go through this process. (CSN New England)

    “Where Siri seems to think Alfredsson is God”

    That’s a funny way to spell Craig Anderson
