Hope everyone had a great New Year! Reid and I are back once again to discuss the latest news around the league. We start off with an injury rundown focusing on P.K. Subban plus the returns of Kris Letang and Nikita Kucherov. From there, we dive into Auston Matthews‘ amazing run of play and where he will go in 2017-18 drafts, Chris Kreider‘s hat trick, whether Anthony Mantha is a hold, whether Thomas Greiss will finally emerge and a goaltender who deserves more playing time. From there, we preview Tuesday’s games and make picks for The Three Point Challenge. All of that in the latest edition of The Razzball Hockey Podcast, sponsored by SeatGeek, No Halftime and fanpicks.com!

Tanner Pearson (15.2%) – While I don’t expect Kings vs. Sharks to be high scoring, Pearson has 5 points in his last 5 games and as we talked about on the podcast, the Kings are dependent on Pearson’s line to score. He just had 1+1 against the Sharks on Saturday so he could get back on the board tonight.
Sebastian Aho (8.0%) – He has a point in three straight and 7 points in his last 8 games. I know the Devils shutout the Bruins last night but getting them on a back to back makes it a good spot for the Hurricanes.
Matt Puempel (0.0%) – Getting exposure to the Rangers tonight against the Sabres can’t be a bad thing. I don’t like chasing points but Puempel just had a hat trick and is getting second unit power play time at the moment.
