Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to this afternoon’s edition of Back of the Net where we take you through all the latest and greatest news and updates from in and around the Bolts Nation, and the world of hockey.
We are here at the start of another work week. We hope no one is suffering too greatly from another case of the Mondays. However, if you are…I would like you to keep this in mind. We are just a Dana Tyrell (42) and a Matt Carle (25) away from hockey season!
Keeping that in mind, it’s time to sit back and relax as we take you through all the latest updates, news, and rumors from not just around the Bolts Nation, but the great, wide world of hockey.
