Turns out one IS the loneliest number — and not every single member of the #NHLJets  left town during the pandemic. Colleague@WFPJasonBell  spoke with Sami Niku about his most forgettable season, fatherhood and hope for a brighter future. #wfp 

Woe, Canada? Given the COVID-19 situation down south, Edmonton and Toronto make sense as hub cities from an NHL perspective. But returning to play this summer is still going to be a very risky venture no matter where it’s held. My column: #wfp 

Tune in now to @hustlerlawless  wi @hustleramah  a @RickRalphTSNd  as I join the guys for so #NHLJetse  talk and perhaps recap Tuesday’s battle of the local hockey scribes at Granite Hills featuri @WiebeSunSpor @WFPJasonBelltsg @ScottBilleck  and in which I finished dead last!

Attention #NHLJets  fans. Poll time! Would you rather: -Beat Calgary in the qualifying round, be one of 16 teams left competing for the Stanley Cup. -Lose to Calgary in the qualifying round, be one of 8 teams in the running for No. 1 draft pick Alexis Lafreniere.

Play ball! The @Wpg_Goldeyes  kick off a unique 2020 @AA_Baseball  season tonight in their hub city of Fargo. For those wondering, all 60 Fish games this year are being live-streamed at , with radio broadcasts featuring on CJNU 93.7 FM. @growcasting  #wfp 

In a year that's already given us more plot twists than an M. Night Shyamalan film, here's another one few likely saw coming: NHL boss Gary Bettman is running away with the title of 2020's best commissioner in North American pro sports. My column: #wfp 

Did you hear about the hockey players who walked into a bar? No, it’s not the start of a corny joke, but a reminder that COVID-19 is no laughing matter — and keeping everyone safe in the NHL’s summer restart will be easier said than done. My column: #wfp

Evander Kane rips off an Arizona player’s helmet in the final minute of the game with his team down 3-2. The referee puts up hand and calls a penalty - on the Arizona player, Ilya Lyubushkin, for playing without a helmet. It doesn’t get more NHL than that.

Winnipeg police looking for help finding Collège Béliveau teacher Kevin Dilk, 50. Left home Wednesday morning, hasn't been seen since.

Did Marc-Andre Fleury just try to sweep a hockey puck like a curling stone in the middle of a game?!

#NHLJets F Patrik Laine has 11 goals since Monday. Like, this past Monday. Like, 120 hours ago. That's a good season for many, many players. #wfp 

Mathieu Perreault just absolutely teed off on the NHL for taking no action against Jake Virtanen for elbowing him in the head last game. “Player safety my ass,” said the #NHLJets  forward. And he had plenty more to say. #wfp
