NHL: Philadelphia Flyers at Buffalo Sabres Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

*It is rookie game weekend, with the kids getting set to take on the Rangers a couple of times. If you didn’t know the origin of these kinds of games, it’s pretty neat. [The Athletic]

*Anyhoo, day one of rookie camp was yesterday and there are a few early standouts. [Inquirer]

*So yesterday we got a look at the national broadcast schedule; the Flyers are getting 13 of them. [NBC Sports Philly]

*In case you missed them here are the latest 25 Under 25 ranked youths; at 18, the Bunn Man... [BSH]

*... at 17, everyone’s favorite prospect that will probably never crack the lineup, Noah Cates... [BSH]

*... and then at 16, the very exciting kid who got his start up in Halifax. [BSH]

*Individual teams have been making their vaccination situations public piecemeal this week, but now we’ve learned that the league expects just about everyone to be protected from the virus by opening night. [ProHockeyTalk]

*We also learned yesterday of an outdoor game to be held between the Leafs and the Sabres; that’ll be fun. [TSN]

*Bill Daly told us that he expects the cap to go up by one whole million dollars in 2022-23. Wow slow down boys. [Sportsnet]

*Sidney Crosby is just like us and wants to see Alex Ovechkin break the Gretzky record. [ESPN]

*And finally, new BSH Radio for your weekend! Naturally, we’re talking goal songs. Enjoy! [BSH]
