Hope you're doing well and staying safe.

Earlier this week when the City of Toronto placed a ban on public events until June 30, that ban did not include sporting events. However, on Friday the mayor of Calgary placed his own ban on public events, which happens to include sporting events. The feeling I've been getting is the various cities and provinces/states will ultimately decide when sports will resume. Some places are being hit harder than others (eg. New York), which could open the door for leagues to restart in certain less-affected cities only. It's difficult to look at the current situation and see a light at the end of the tunnel, though.  

Now that we are well into social distancing (hopefully), Zoom has become increasingly popular for gatherings such as meetings, schooling, religious services, and family events. Unfortunately, that has resulted in Zoom-bombing attacks. Rangers prospect K'Andre Miller was targeted in the form of racist language (USA Today) during a chat session with fans. Let's hope the authorities find the perpetrator and punish to the full extent of the law on this overt hate crime.


Continuing on with the assists topic I've been diving into lately, today I'm listing the top options for primary assists to secondary assists. If you're getting tired of assists, I promise I won't stay on this topic forever. A1-A2 refers to how many more primary assists to secondary assists the player attained, while A2/A1 show how many secondary assists the player attained for every primary assist.
