Forget "THANK YOU KESSEL!" It's time for "THANK YOU ERIKSSON!" Tyler Seguin, who is just 18 months removed from his trade to the Dallas Stars, leads the NHL in goals scored (18) and is 3rd in total points (31). He's only two points out of first place (held by Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby).

GIF by the wonderful Steph, whose work you can find at GIFGoldmine.com.

Tyler Seguin is in the media again, this time with a nice little interview that was released by the NHL on Thursday. Almost certainly filmed during the late summer NHL media tour, NHL on NBC/NHL Network host Kathryn Tappen asks questions that cover Seguin's time with the Bruins as well as with the Stars, and there's a bit of fun behind-the-scenes footage as well.

Team Jamie or Team Jordie?

Today at 6 CST, you can meet Jamie and Jordie Benn at the Hard Rock Cafe just down from Victory Park and vote on whose burger is better. I have to go Team Jordie all the way on this one -- because bacon wins every time.
