On the NHL podcast with Marko:

#1 Marko, you might remember this guy Joe Pavelski of the Dallas Stars he signed on Friday an extension for the 2022-23 season with the Dallas Stars for $5.5. million. Pavelski leads the Stars in scoring and could have become a unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.

#2 Pavelski an ex Shark said that he and his family loved Dallas since day one and are committed to stay and in Dallas and hopefully finish his career there. Will the Stars keep Pavelski as long as they can?

#3 The Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Petr Mrazek will be in net for the Leafs this Sunday at the 2022 Tim Horton Heritage Classic. The Leafs other goalie Jack Campbell is out for at least two weeks with a rib injury and the Leafs used back up goalie Erik Kallgren filled in for Mrazek.

#4 How badly does it hurt the Detroit Red Wings losing forward Robby Fabbri for the rest of the season due to a right knee injury. Wings head coach Jeff Blashill said they are trying to get a second opinion but it’s really looking like Fabbri is out for the season.

#5 The Calgary Flames forward Johnny Gaudreau is in the last and final year of this six year contract and general manager Brad Treliving said the Flames are doing everything they can to sign Gaudreau before the March 21st trade deadline.
