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.

Tom Wilson has an opportunity to make the Washington Capitals’ opening game roster. However, Capitals coach Adam Oates is worried the 6-foot-4 forward might pick up some bad habits if he ends up back in the OHL because he’ll tower over the competition. (Washington Post)

18-year-old forward Linden Penner wasn’t taken in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, but he went to the Calgary Flames’ camp and netted two goals in their prospects scrimmage to help lead Team Black to a 4-1 victory. (Calgary Sun)

Coach John Anderson has agreed to coach the St. Louis Blues’ affiliate, the Chicago Wolves. You might remember Anderson as the head coach of the Atlanta Thrashers in 2008-09 and 2009-10, but he also spent 2011-13 as an assistant coach for the Phoenix Coyotes. Anderson is returning to his roots with the Wolves and has enjoyed a lot of success with that franchise in the past. (AHL.com)

    And Trevor Gretzky, whose dad played for the St. Louis Blues very briefly, and I think 3 other teams, is pursuing his baseball dream with the Boise Hawks in the Northwest League, Single-A short season. Doing moderately well so far.

    What about Brendan Burke, Max Domi & Henrik Samuelsson? They had prospect camp too. Brendan Burke was drafted by his dad’s team higher than Anthony Brodeur.
