Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! Welcome to this tonight’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.

The weekend is finally upon us! Hopefully, those of us here in Hockey Paradise can use the time off to soak up some of the beautiful Florida sun that we have all come to know and love; go to the beach and spend some time with good friends.

We have one more day in the books now, which means that we are one day closer to the start of the season. We are only an Anders Lindback (39) and a Mike Angelidis (10) away! Yes, just 49 more days until the puck drops for the first official time in the 2013-14 season.

It’s time for us to get down to business here. So, without further ado, 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.
