With a 12 p.m. start, the sunny 35-degree weather didn't mesh well with the surface above the 18th hole at the Edgewood Tahoe Resort, and while players were in the locker room during the first intermission, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman announced that the game would resume at 9 p.m. PT.

With silky mitts, highlight-reel defensive plays and ten-bell saves, the 2020-21 NHL rookie class is making its presence known — and not in the way many would have predicted.

The talking point of Drysdale’s game is his skating ability. An effortless mover, Drysdale walks the line laterally quicker than some players move forward. His four-way mobility is such an asset in all three zones as it helps him initiate the breakout, but also defend in transition. On top of moving quicker and more efficiently than others, he also processes the game quicker than nearly any other player on the ice. With eyes in the back of his head, Drysdale reads and reacts to situations like a 20-year pro already, as teams have difficulty hemming the Gulls in their own zone when Drysdale is on the ice because of how effectively he tracks and moves the puck.[url=https://www.nhlstanding.com/san-jose-sharks.html]San Jose Sharks NHL Design Face Masks [/url]

Military flyovers will precede both puck drops. A local artist, Aurora Gooch, will perform the national anthem Saturday from a surprise, nearby location and Green Day will release a new song, “Here Comes the Shock.” On Sunday, Pentatonix will sing the national anthem remotely and a performance from country star Brett Eldridge will air.[url=https://www.nhlstanding.com/columbus-blue-jackets.html]Columbus Blue Jackets NHL Design Face Masks [/url]

In 2021, it's a bit quieter on social media. There are no anti-racism billboards at the rink. The league has done its annual remembrances and honors during Black History Month -- many of them centered on Willie O'Ree, who broke hockey's color barrier in 1958 -- but the outpouring that fans saw in the bubbles hasn't carried over to the 2021 season.

The scene will be unlike any other the NHL has witnessed. Set on the 18th fairway at the Edgewood Tahoe Resort Golf Course in Stateline, Nevada, the Bruins, Flyers, Golden Knights, and Avalanche will take part in this season’s only outdoor games.[url=https://www.nhlstanding.com/edmonton-oilers.html]Edmonton Oilers NHL Design Face Masks [/url]
