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.

Calgary Flames forward Jiri Hudler is playing alongside the son of one of one of the players he looked up to in his youth, Roman Horak Sr. The 21-year-old Horak Jr. is happy to be part of this line too, especially given that he was a fan of Hudler’s growing up. (Calgary Sun)

Erik Karlsson and Jason Spezza might not be able to play again this season, but the Ottawa Senators’ stars will still help the franchise in other ways. (Ottawa Citizen)
