My Scouting Report series continues today, and once again we are focusing on the blue line.
Today, we look at the 61st pick from the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Alex Goligoski. Goligoski played three seasons at the University of Minnesota after the Penguins drafted him.

We're nearing the end of our projections for the draft's second round, and today we have an intriguing prospect in Dillon Dubé. Dubé is a gritty, albeit undersized player that can play all three forward positions. He has flashes of skill but is likely to make himself known through his tenacity and work ethic.
Dubé emerged as one of the Kelowna Rockets' strongest players this year while they dealt with various injuries. He was a point per game player while being on the younger end of 2016 draft elgibles - projection models with smile upon him.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was added to Team North America last Friday, and you can expect him to face many tough matchups in the tournament. His 313 NHL games are second most on the team (Sean Couturier has played 350), and RNH is looking forward to the opportunity to battle the best-of-the-best this September.
I caught up with the 2011 first overall pick to discuss the World Cup of Hockey, his frustrating season and his thoughts on what his NHL team needs to do to become competitive next season.

With Rogers Place set to open up in the fall it got me to thinking about what I hope is included in terms of amenities and the all around experience of being at the rink. Ticket prices are going up, and, as a result, I think the quality of entertainment at the rink should also go up and that's where I need your help. I want to find out what you would do to improve the fan experience at Rogers Place, and for you to tell me what needs to be there and what would annoy you if it was left out of the plans.

Justin Schultz is a pretty cringeworthy topic around these parts, but I think we need to address the elephant in the room: Justin Schultz is actually playing some pretty good hockey for the Pittsburgh Penguins, and we should be happy for him.
