*Somehow we are only 13 days away from the start of the season. This is flying. And we learned yesterday, we’re officially just over a month away from the start of an AHL season. Which is great news. [The AHL]

*Anyhoo, we might be worried about who is going to be paired with whom this season, but Travis Sanheim sure isn’t. [Inquirer]

*Travis Sanheim is always using his downtime to do a little house renovation. Which is always a party. No wonder he isn’t thinking about his defense partner right now. [NBC Sports Philly]

*Let’s take a look at what The Discourse surrounding the Flyers is ahead of the news season, shall we? [ProHockeyTalk]

*Speaking of discourse, I guess we’re going to have to suffer another season of The Beats questioning Claude Giroux’s effectiveness. Find a new slant boys. [Inquirer]

*Sean Couturier is elite. Sean Couturier has been elite. But will Sean Couturier remain elite? [The Athletic]

*As the World Junior Championship rolls on, it looks like either Finland or Canada will be at the top when the medal rounds begin. [Sportsnet]

*Biggest news this week? Zdeno Chara is a Capitals?? That one came out of nowhere. [Japers’ Rink]

*Apparently this is because the Bruins told him they were no longer interested in his services. [Stanley Cup of Chowder]

*The ice is going down at The Farg!! Oh man it’s going to be nice to see the boys playing at home again. [NBC Sports Philly]

*And finally, in case you missed it, there’s a fun Holiday Special episode of BSH Radio up for your enjoyment. BSH story time, if you will. Hope you all like it. [BSH]

*Everyone have a safe and responsible and socially distanced and most of all fun New Year’s Eve! Catch you on the other side, pals.
