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.

Matt Duchene‘s hot start for the Colorado Avalanche is much in part thanks to the size of the stick he’s using. Here’s a hint: It’s not the size of the stick, it’s how you use it. (The Denver Post)

Editor’s Note: Pro Hockey Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $2,500 Fantasy Hockey league tonight (Wednesday). It’s just $10 to join and first prize is $500. Starts at 8pm ET. Here’s the link.

Nikolai Khabibulin isn’t having the greatest of starts this season for the Chicago Blackhawks, as he proved again on Tuesday night, but his teammates have his back. (CSNChicago.com, ESPNChicago.com)

John Tortorella wasn’t too pleased with Zack Kassian‘s play the other night and didn’t pull any punches about it. (The Province)

Writers are starting to get really down on the Winnipeg Jets piling up losses. At least this one was to the St. Louis Blues, right? (Winnipeg Free Press)

Jordan Leopold is still scoreless and on the Blues defense that’s kind of a big deal. (St. Louis Post-Dispatch)

Finally, check out Ray Whitney photo-bombing (video-bombing?) a Tyler Seguin interview on TSN. (NHL.com)

    You really need to work on your grammar man, it’s terrible. Two phrasing mistakes and your job was simply to write a few headline phrases.
