Monday Afternoon Links
TSN: Ramsay informed he won’t coach in Winnipeg. Looks like True North wants to go in a new direction. Wonder if that applies to a name……
Winnipeg Free Press: New GM meets scouts, days before draft. Crunch time in the next week.
CBC: Winnipeg NHL team may remain nameless at draft. True North could sure wow the Xcel Energy Center if they unveil the new jersey at the draft but it doesn’t appear that this will happen.
TSN: Cheveldayoff prepares Winnipeg staff for their first NHL draft. A lot of work will be done this week. Be sure to tune into IC’s live coverage from the draft as we will have Kyle, Ez and Remis on site in St. Paul.
The Hockey News: Will Ken Hitchcock return behind NHL bench? With just Winnipeg and New Jersey left looking for a head coach, will Hitch get a posting? Seems to be the year of the non-experienced coach so the current trend appears to be against him.
ESPN: Countdown to July 1. Pierre LeBrun with a breakdown of what is happening around the NHL.
Fox Sports: Trades could heat up before draft. Doesn’t appear Winnipeg is in the mix to make a splash, but always important to know what other teams are up to.

Winnipeg Free Press: Gordie Howe in city for charity golf tournament. Met him while covering the Wings/Flyers exhibition game at Joe Louis Arena a few years back. He was extremely nice with a sense of humour as sharp as his elbows.
Prospect Pulse: Arturs Kulda. If you missed it earlier, Kyle had an interesting take on this prospect.
