Another Monday. Another Cannon Blasts.
We’ve got a few things to cover this week. So, keep up loves.
Last week we had one of our longest episodes of “The Cannon Cast” to date. We discussed the Stanley Cup Finals, Alexander Wennberg’s performance at Worlds, and Women’s professional hockey in North America.
On Friday, Lukas Sedlak left the NHL and signed a two year deal in the KHL.
Our player reviews are still going on right now, too.
As is tradition, Ryan Murray played incredibly well before ..... wait for it..... wait for it.... getting hurt and missing the rest of the season. Shocking? right?
Oliver Bjorkstrand provided a glimpse into the future. It’s pretty bright. So, put on your sunglasses.
A quiet season by Markus Hannikainen was dampened by an injury in January.

Ohio Hockey News
The Toledo Walleye are still battling it out against the Newfoundland Growlers in the Kelly Cup Finals. On June 1st, they were able to keep their championship win hopes alive by beating the Growlers, 3-2.
Speaking of the Kelly Cup, it is not in the ECHL’s possession. It is currently in the possession of last season’s champions, the Colorado Eagles. They claim they tried to return the trophy to the ECHL before moving to the AHL.
This story is wild. WILD!
It’s pretty much the most Ohio thing ever to play in a championship game where the trophy is missing in action. I say we make them a foil one to raise above their heads.
