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.
Editor’s Note: Pro Hockey Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a $2,000 Fantasy Hockey league for Monday’s NHL games. It’s just $10 to join and first prize is $400. Starts Monday at 7pm ET. Here’s the FanDuel link.

Things are getting better for Phoenix’s Mike Smith:
Mike Smith re: last night's game: "I felt really confident coming out of that game & probably the most comfortable that I've felt all year."—
