Are you worried about all of the injuries on the St. Louis roster? Maybe you shouldn’t be. While it’s unclear who will return and when, it’s pretty interesting seeing Hitchcock make such a bold statement. It’s a telling comment, but it leaves him a bit of wiggle room.

Steve Ott jokes about having one of the NHL’s worst plus/minus ratings

The plus/minus statistic is a silly one. It tries to paint a picture of an NHL skater’s value outside of scoring goals and assists, specifically if they’re on the ice for more goals scored than goals allowed, but it’s extremely limited.
