*Derrick Brassard played hockey here. Does this sound familiar to you? Do you remember this? Did you imagine this during some wild ayahuasca trip? No you did not it really happened! And here’s what it looked like. [BSH]

*Over on Charlie’s website, his player reviews continue with Joel Farabee, whose up-and-down couple of seasons are blissfully more up than down. [The Athletic]
