Welcome to the NHL Player Confidential. We canvassed the league, asking 50 players some pressing questions about the hot-button issues in their sport. Ever wonder what club has the worst visiting locker room? What road cities players dread the most? (Spoiler alert: The Winnipeg office of tourism will not be tweeting this story out.) How about recreational drug use, burner Twitter accounts, playing in Seattle and that big, fuzzy, orange mascot in Philadelphia? Our panel of pros got in their share of cross-checks.
