    • Some big moves for our hockey team yesterday.
    • The Golden Knights signed Defenseman Alex Pietrangelo to a seven-year contract.
    • The contract is worth an average annual value of 8,800,000.
    • The team has also acquired a third-round draft selection in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for defenseman Nate Schmidt.
    • The Golden Knights General Manger Kelly McCrimmon said, “When we looked at opportunities to improve our team, we saw a rare opportunity to add an elite player like Alex to our team. For us, we viewed it as a similar opportunity to when we acquired Mark Stone. Generally, these are players don’t make it to market."

    • He is taking steps to evict his ex-wife Orianne Cevey from his Florida mansion.
    • Now, they got divorced over a decade ago but they have been off and on again since then.
    • She allegedly got secretly married to another man in August after she told Phil that she was taking a business trip to Las Vegas!
    • She is refusing to vacate their south Florida mansion and he refuses to give her any spousal support, which he did when they originally got divorced.
    • His ex says she want to re-negotiate the 2008 divorce settlement before she leaves.

    • Of the 34% that do plan to celebrate, 30% say they will physically open the door to give out the candy, while 24% plan to just leave a bowl outside.
  • #NaturalFlight
    • Natty Light is holding a contest where one person and three guests get to drink cheap beer and fly around in the company’s private jet.
    • It’s a “flight to nowhere,” so you can’t actually travel anywhere.
    • They’ll just take you up to 30,000 feet, fly around for a few hours while you pretend to be rich and then land at the same airport.
    • They say the flight and everything it comes with is worth $25,000. To enter, you have to post on social media with the hashtags “NaturalFlight” and “Contest,” and tell them what you’d name your private jet if you had one.
