OTPP: Jaromir Jagr Milestone, Vincent Viola Nominated, World Junior Preview
Jaromir Jagr has passed Mark Messier and is now the second leading scorer in NHL history, trailing only Wayne Gretzky. We look back at his remarkable career and accomplishments as well as looking at how he just keeps scoring at age 44. How much longer can Jagr keep it going? What other milestones might be in his future? Where would he be if not for three lockouts and three years in the KHL.
Florida Panthers owner Vincent Viola has been nominated for the position of Secretary of the Army by United States President-Elect Donald J. Trump. We look at what this means for the Panthers.
The boys also look ahead to the World Junior Championships. Who are the players and teams to watch in this year’s tournament? What 2017 NHL Draft eligible player is going to have a breakout season?
Lastly the boys look ahead to the NHL Trade Deadline. There are five teams who seem to be dead in the water for a chance at a playoff spot. What playoff rentals will be available in Colorado, Arizona, Brooklyn, Carolina, and New Jersey? What can these teams expect in terms of a return.
All that and more in this edition of On the Power Play.
