Well we’re inching closer to the start of the hockey season, but before we get there, it’s time for the Big Unveiling of the full 2016 NHL Entry pGPS data set.
Taking on the entire draft at once already produces a massive amount of information, but this year’s review is so replete with beautiful charts fashioned by our very own Petbugs, it would simply be outrageous to try to fit it into one article. That’s while we’ll be taking this journey one division at a time, with a league wide overview at the end.
Today we're diving into the division with the silliest name: the Metropolitan Division!

This time, there's something on the line. Tonight, Team Canada will have a chance to put Team Europe behind them and get a chance to win their second consecutive World Cup of Hockey.

Training camps are in full swing, the World Cup could end tonight and some leagues around the world have kicked off their seasons.

The University of North Dakota hockey gods were at Rogers Arena tonight. Fresh off a NCAA national championship, former teammates Troy Stecher and Drake "could have been a Canuck" Caggiula were on the score sheet tonight. Both had as big of an impact tonight as they did with their North Dakota team last year. The first home game of the season was a night to remember for the Canucks young guns and new players.
With 1 goal and 2 assists tonight, Richmond, BC native Troy Stecher carried the Canucks in their 5-3 win over Edmonton.

Just hours after pissing off most of the greater Vancouver area by cutting Jordan Subban after one pre-season game, the Canucks have sent 11 more players to Utica, possibly to distract us. Most of these are just business as usual cuts, but there are a few interesting names that might disappoint a few people.
