The Roundup

Good morning, Nation. As we do every week, the Roundup is here to take a look at the biggest stories from around the Nation Network. In this edition, we’ll take a look at Milan Lucic’s scoring slump, Morgan Reilly’s emergence in Toronto, re-signing the Sedins in Vancouver, Tkachuk’s next contract in Calgary, and more in this week’s Nation Roundup brought to you by the DailyFaceOff.

In the Roundup, we go around the Nation Network and give you some of the best articles of the last couple weeks. Every once in a while it’s good to know what other teams are doing, or maybe you find an interesting article you wouldn’t have found otherwise.
