NHL agent and former Gopher and NHL player Ben Hankinson caught up with our Darren 'Doogie' Wolfson. Hankinson co-founded Da Beauty League, which has its opening night on Wednesday at Braemar Arena in Edina. Over 50 current NHL players are expected to take part at some point in the summer league, which is now in its third year.
Hankinson represents a number of high-profile players with local ties, including Panther Nick Bjugstad (Blaine HS), Canuck Brock Boeser (Burnsville HS), Lightning Ryan McDonagh (Cretin-Derham Hall HS) Penguin Jake Guentzel (Hill-Murray HS), and free agent Paul Martin (Elk River HS).
The Wild have talked trade with Florida about Bjugstad, and have shown some interest in Martin.
