*Does it or does it not feel like hockey right now?? Leaves on the ground, a chill in the air, dark at 4pm... ugh. Anyone else really missing it right now? Anyhoo, scratch your hockey itch with these fun “Philly” hockey plays. [BSH]

*And then buy this shirt. A shameless plug. [BSH]

*Cam York may be entering beast mode. It might be too soon to call it definitively, but boy does this kid look outstanding at Michigan so far this season. [NBC Sports Philly]

*We take a look back at Connor Bunnaman’s contributions this season. [BSH]

*And our pal Charlie looks forward at what Shayne Gostisbehere’s future with the team might look like. If there is one. [The Athletic]

*The Flyers’ ECHL affiliate, the Reading Royals, have elected to cancel this season because of the virus. [Inquirer]

*They’re not the only ones, though. A lot of ECHL teams are being forced to pack it in entirely, and it suuuuucks for these small teams. [Sportsnet]

*Speaking of things that suck, the owners are trying to take more money from the players. A tale as old as time, truly. [ProHockeyTalk]

*Know what else sucks? Mark Greig’s kid was on his way to Team Canada but he’s been diagnosed with COVID. Ugh. [TSN]

*And finally, you may be expecting these teams that suck to actually suck when the season starts. But they might actually be good. Whomst is to say! [The Athletic]
