It might be summer, but there is still NHL news! Including:

Fresh off a Stanley Cup, Jordan Binnington has a new contract with the St. Louis Blues. Ryan Dzingel moves to the Carolina Hurricanes and Micheal Ferland takes his talents to Vancouver. Are the deals good?

Alexander Nylander was dealt from Buffalo to Chicago for Henri Jokiharju. Did either team win this deal?

The 4th Line Podcast is a weekly hockey podcast hosted by Carl Landra and Nick Seguin. Every week they share their unique and fun take on what is happening in the world of hockey. While they don’t take themselves too seriously, they have a typical no 4th line attitude: what they lack in finesse, they make for in being willing to go to the corners and work hard to get the job done.

Who are Carl and Nick? Carl comes from Calgary, AB. His facial hair of choice is a mustache. His team of choice is the Colorado Avalanche and his smoked meat of choice is brisket.  Nick comes from Toronto, ON. His facial hair of choice is a light beard. His team of choice is the Detroit Red Wings and his smoked meat of choice is ribs.
