Today's the day of the initial roster reveals for the World Cup of Hockey, and IDK about you, but I'm very meh on this one.

  • Evgeni Malkin named to Russia in literally no surprise
  • And Olli Maatta will be with the Finns in also a very expected move
  • The rest of the teams will be named throughout the day, one thing you don't hear about but should is that Kris Letang is one of the best Canadian defenseman even if they are stacked.

Sean Horcoff of the Ducks returns from a substance abuse ban, takes responsibility and is ready to move forward. [ProHockeyTalk]

In the first battle of Connor McDavid vs. Jack Eichel, well there's no doubting who the #1 player is. McD scores both Edmonton goals to lead them to an OT win. [TSN]
