- Stack the Pads features a Q&A with new Hershey Bears signee Jason Bacashihua, who is excited to be in the Caps organization. Includes a Q&A with Bandits Goaltending School’s Stan Matwijiw.
- Lightning prospect Dustin Tokarski looks ahead to his first pro season with the Norfolk Admirals. (Tampa Bay Lightning)
- Thrashers GM Don Waddell says Drew MacIntyre will compete with the other three goalies (Lehtonen, Hedberg, Pavlec) for a spot in Atlanta and looks forward to a good goalie battle in camp.

- Update: Here’s a little more from Sens assistant GM Tim Murray on the goaltending situation with Holt in the mix. (Sharp on the Sens)
