NHL Daily: Morning NHL Headlines

Could the Leafs Be After a Bruin?
When Toronto acquired Brian Boyle from Tampa Bay at the trade deadline in hopes he would provide some solid grit on the fourth line. They have plans of moving Frederik Gauthier up to that fourth line from the AHL, but there could be another option. Dominic Moore is a fairly inexpensive player and can provide the grit needed but also score clutch goals when needed. (Editor In Leaf)

All-Star Game in the Sunshine State
A lot of rumors are going around the Tampa Bay will be hosting the 2018 NHL All-Star game. If they do get the chance to host the game it would be for the first time in 19 years, and the second in franchise history. (Bolts By The Bay)

Leafs Sign Two Swedish Defenseman

The St. Louis Blues Now Have to Share Their AHL Affiliate
When news came in that the Vegas Golden Knights signed a deal to have the Chicago Wolves as an AHL affiliate, the Blues were kind of displeased. The worst part about this move is the fact both organizations now have to share the team and when you have prospects from both teams on one team, there is a solid chance they will report back with scouting reports.

Islanders Land New Assistant Coach
It’s been known for quite awhile that the New York Islanders would be looking for a new assistant coach to help head coach Doug Weight. And they finally found one when they hired ex-NHLer Luke Richardson. Richardson played 1,417 games in the NHL through 21 seasons. He brings a lot of experience to the team behind the bench since he was the head coach of the Binghamton Senators of the AHL. (Eyes On Isles)
