*And here's the full induction ceremony, in case you missed it. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Poor Jack Johnson. His parents essentially stole all of his money. Can't help but feel for the kid. [Blue Jackets Xtra]

*The league is also discussing expanding review for goalie interference. [ProHockeyTalk]

*So Kerry Fraser says that NHL officials have lists of players that they'll call more often than others. That's...terrible. That's what that is. [TSN]

*Sean McIndoe looks at which NHL coaches and GMs are already in the hot seat. [Grantland]
