If you want to view the full gallery of pictures I took on my second trip to the Hockey Hall of Fame, click here to view it on my photography page.
I said I was going to go back to the Hockey Hall of Fame and I did, mostly because it seemed like everywhere was shut in Toronto on New Years Day.
So I got up and had breakfast, wrote the blog for the day before and left the hotel around 11am to take the 20 minute walk down Yonge Street.

In the latest edition of Across The Pond I revisit a topic I spoke about last month where I predicted that both the Edmonton Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs would both improve this season but only slightly.
Tonight the 2015 NHL Draft first overall pick Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers take on the 2016 NHL Draft first overall pick Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs face off for the first of two meetings between the sides this season.
Both teams have vastly different experiences early in the 2016-17 season, watch below as I talk about tonight’s meeting at the season ahead.
I hope you enjoyed this latest video, more written content is coming (once this goes up I will be starting a new article).
In the first of hopefully many interviews on this website, I caught up with NIHL 2 team Cardiff Fire Director of Hockey and Head Coach Mark Cuddihy after the teams win over the Wightlink Buccaneers.
The fire remained unbeaten on the season and are looking strong for the rest of the year.
Hope you enjoy.

It’s very likely that negotiations on contracts began quite a while before free agency officially opened on Friday as the deals came thick and fast with close to $300 million worth of contracts signed within 30 minutes.

There was too much action to go through each signing so instead I’m going to highlight deals I liked and deals I didn’t necessarily dislike, just have an issue with.

While there are only four teams left in the NHL playing hockey, the rest are playing golf, I’m going to look at which team is picking where in next month’s draft and tell you who they’re going to pick with almost everything that follows the top three selections being highly inaccurate.
For arguments sake I’ll list the bottom four teams (St. Louis, San Jose, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay) in order of how they finished in the regular season standings, the team with the lowest points of the four will get back 27 for example and the highest will get pick 30.
I released a mock draft of the first 14 selections after the NHL Draft Lottery a few weeks back so you can check that out as well to see how much my selections have changed.
Here we go, the Toronto Maple Leafs are on the clock.
