*There was a real-life hockey game played last night, which means it is now hockey season. It’s happening. Settle in. And the kids looked dang good! [NBC Sports Philly]

*Anyhoo, Ivan Provorov and Travis Konecny are still not signed. [BSH]

*While we’ve been away, the Wells Fargo Center has gotten very fancy. [The Farg]

*Pretty sure all of us are chomping at the bit for one of our top prospects to finally make this opening night roster, so a look at how they’ve performed thus far might let us know how likely it is that we will see that. [The Athletic]

*Speaking of, how can Joel Farabee win a spot from the jump? [NBC Sports Philly]

*Isaac Ratcliffe may not be on this team out of camp but it won’t be for lack of trying. [Inquirer]

*In case you missed it, the full training camp schedule and roster information was released the other day. Always fun to head into Voorhees for some of this stuff if you’re able. [NBC Sports Philly]

*The Zach Werenski deal is pretty interesting in that its somewhat unorthodox structure may be the way all of these remaining RFA contracts end up. [TSN]

*This is absolutely off topic but sometimes its nice to remind about the upward swing this team is on by mentioning things like the fact that we no longer have to write about Zac Rinaldo. [On The Forecheck]

*The St. Louis Blues, who you may remember are the reigning Cup champions, have elected to give Peter Chiarelli a job. The NHL is truly a remarkable thing. [Sportsnet]

*And finally, new Flyperbole! The boys dive into the Provy situation and you know you don’t want to miss those takes. [BSH]
