Some notes to kick off the day; 

-The World Cup means a lot more than just a tournament to young players such as Auston Matthews of the Maple Leafs and Patrik Laine of the Jets. Both players, who have yet to officially play their first games in the NHL, are already getting their chance to play against NHL players in this tournament. With that, players like Matthews and Laine will get some experience to bring into the upcoming season, which is very beneficial to their development. 

-The Arizona Coyotes, which we will touch up on as apart of a later segment here on hockeydocs, are headed for a huge bright future with players such as Max Domi, Anthony Duclair, Dylan Strome, and Christian Dvorak, among many others who will develop a strong young core that will eventually catapult this team into a playoff contender in the near future. 

-Stars forward Tyler Seguin will be re-evaluated in a week after Seguin suffered a hairline fracture in his heel. Then, it will be determined just how much longer Seguin will be out. Anytime Seguin misses will be a huge blow to the Stars who need his offense to help guide this team to a Stanley Cup this year.
