*Charlie’s back at it with the season reviews as well, this time taking a look at Cam Atkinson, the one trade Chuck has made that objectively worked out. [The Athletic]

*In a bit of good/fun news, a couple of Flyers Kids have made the roster for the Team Canada World Junior’s squad. [Hockey Canada]
