• In his Editor’s Notebook, Jason Kay writes that there’s nothing wrong with leaning on stats to come up with award winners, especially for the Selke.

• In the THN Inbox, the best letters to the editor are printed, the results of an online poll are displayed and Adam Proteau answers your questions on the trapezoid and Erik Karlsson in Ask Adam.

• Inside Hockey looks at the outstanding play from rookies in these playoffs; Ottawa prospect Darren Kramer’s peanut butter invention; we break down the drop in penalty minutes; how the World Championship provide Olympic hopeful players a chance; and we look back at the important career of Butch Bouchard.
