Can Noah Dobson be the puck-moving defenseman that the New York Islanders have been looking for on the NHL Trade Market and in free agency?

The Pittsburgh Penguins have added a former Boston College star and Hingham MA native on a PTO.

That and more in the latest BHN Puck Links:

Finally, I’m off to my first Dead and Company show tomorrow night! Cannot wait for not just the concert but the show in the parking lots! Will be interesting for sure. Even if you’re not a Dead fan but you are a fan, and a fan of great guitarists, then you should check them out if you can. I’m told that John Mayer is simply amazing!
