EDMONTON JOURNAL: Oilers winger Jordan Eberle claims he’s leaner, quicker and ready for training camp. Eberle also said it’ll be nice to have some familiarity with the coach, noting he’d gone through three coaches in five years.

EDMONTON SUN: The Oilers also signed 2014 first-round pick Leon Draisaitl to a three-year entry-level deal.

OTTAWA SUN: Former Montreal Canadiens captain Brian Gionta is selling his Montreal-area home.

TORONTO STAR: Maple Leafs legends praise the team’s plan to present commemorative rings to members of the 1960s Stanley Cup champions.


  1. The leafs are hilarious, what a joke. They are so desperate for any reason to celebrate anything. It’s like they are trying to remind their fan base of the good old days even though they were a half century ago.

    • As a Leafs fan, I’m embarrassed because I know this just gives fuel to “Leafs-haters” but at the same time, I was really put off by Liewicke’s plans to remove all the pictures of past Leafs greats from the ACC. I think this is in-part a make-up for those plans, which Johnny Bower quickly put an end to.

    • Ya hilarious because no other teams (like the Habs 10 times a year) do anything like that to honor the traditions of great teams they had in the past….moron. That team (or alot of earlier champions) never got cup rings, its a nice touch.

  2. You even know why they are giving out the rings? It’s because in the early days they didn’t give out a ring for each cup win. So this is the Leafs making up for that.
