    Team USA had to forfeit their game and give the Swiss a win because two players tested positive for Covid and the team is in quarantine.

    TSN's Bob McKenzie has a very good thread on his Twitter page detailing everything that has gone down so far and what's ahead.

    Power with a primary assist on the power play Canada's 1st goal against Austria... Ray Ferrero compared Power to Chris Pronger and Alex Pietrangelo... leading up to the draft a few draft experts said Power s ceiling was Pronger and his floor was Pietrangelo

    Interesting.. however Conor Bedard is 18 months younger than Wright and bedard is getting more playing time and having more of a impact.. Canada has a comfortable lead against the Austrians i would think the coach would give Wright a few shifts in the 2nd period

    Ken Campbell talked more about Bedard in his latest dispatch. The TL, DR version: Bedard's changing the narrative and he's moved from being the 13th forward to getting on the 4th line.

    Owen power playing for team Canada in the Olympics. What a season for this kid. Good for him to decide to go back to Michigan. He's getting great chances to develop

    And let's not forget that Matthew Beniers is on Team USA. So Michigan is WELL represented.

    Both Levi and Portillo are semi finalists for the Mike Richter award, which is top goalie in NCAA hockey.

    The future is bright

    Elliott Friedman also reports power will sign with the sabres once the Mich season is over. Which is hopefully late late late. Let's get that natty!

    Re: Prospect talk.

    Devon Levi might be a good one. Portillo isn’t playing in Buffalo unless the deal is stupid once he hits free agency I doubt he will ever hear the name Hertel ave or Bailey.
