Jets look to Olli Jokinen to fill gap at center, Ducks fans plan “hate night” for Oilers defenseman Justin Schultz, and Bob Hartley discusses his job as Flames new head coach.


Jets have high hopes for Jokinen.

NHL.COM: Winnipeg Jets GM Kevin Cheveldayoff believes newly acquired Olli Jokinen will provide his club with a significant boost at center.

EDMONTON JOURNAL: Several Anaheim Ducks fans, upset at new Oilers defenseman Justin Schultz for spurning their club, plan a “hate night” when he plays his first game in Anaheim on October 19.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: A “hate night”? Really?? Who’s behind this, a grade schooler?  I understand Ducks fans aren’t amused about Schultz’s decision, and they have every right to voice their disdain, which I daresay they were going to do anyway without any exhortation when he plays his first game in Anaheim with the Oilers. A “hate night”, however, is childish and silly.

CALGARY SUN: New Flames head coach Bob Hartley talks about what he’s been up to since his hiring.
