Morning Skate Podcast – 10/2/19 – Opening Night is Here! (Skip first 40 seconds)

Welcome back! Matt and DJ bring you through Wednesday’s action to kick off the 2019-20 NHL Season. With plenty of large prize pools to go around, you aren’t going to want to miss this!

A couple news items for Wednesday – Evander Kane was in fact suspended, and catapulted Timo Meier onto the first PP unit. Cody Glass also once again practiced alongside Mark Stone and Max Pacioretty, giving the rookie a ton of merit as a lower-priced option.

Follow us on Twitter @MorningSkatePod, where there will be plenty of RTs from around the league leading up until puck drop, on the daily!

Apologies for the rough start, the editing process didn’t include “linking the start of the podcast up to the countdown”…
