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.

Should the Carolina Hurricanes go after Brenden Morrow? His agent has been in contact with the team and he expects they’ll have further conversations. (News & Observer)

Nineteen-year-old forward Reid Boucher is hoping to earn a spot on the New Jersey Devils’ opening game roster. The 2011 fourth-round pick took a huge step forward last season with 62 goals in 68 OHL games. (New Jersey Online)

Ron Francis, the Carolina Hurricanes vice president of hockey operations, said there’s “no question” that 20-year-old forward Victor Rask has a shot of making the team out of training camp. (News & Observer)

Here are nine Pittsburgh Penguins worth keeping an eye on. (

Forward Jimmy Lodge, 18, didn’t end up being selected in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft until late in the third round. He thought he’d be taken sooner, but the new Winnipeg Jets prospect is moving past that and looking forward to the 2013-14 campaign. (Winnipeg Sun)

    And yet everyone thinks that P.K. is such a terrible person, not sure any other player in the NHL does more for charity and kids than P.K. does.

      Nobody thinks he is a terrible person AWAY from hockey.

      But he has a history of:

      1.) slew footing players
      2.) slicing players laces with his skate blades
      3.) flapping his gums and then skating away from the fight.

      Great guy off the ice/dirty player on it……PK meet Bard Marchand and Matt Cooke.

    I don’t think the Leafs can afford him, but he sure would look good on the 3rd line. They could really use a guy with that much of experience.
