Morning Bag Skate: A look at Bryan Bickell, and the best goal of 2013-14

Our daily look at Blackhawks news and the happenings around the world of hockey.

We've finally reached September, which means the beginning of hockey is just around the corner. For now, let's take in the latest news from the weekend:

**Tracey Myers previews Bryan Bickell entering 2014-15. As we all know, consistency is the name of the game with the 28-year-old. (CSN Chicago)

**Looks like Ryan Johansen will not report to training camp as contract talks with the Blue Jackets continue to stall. Hard to fault Columbus with taking a hard stance with the young center. (Columbus Dispatch)

**A look at the best goal of 2013-14 according to SB Nation, which is unsurprisingly Tomas Hertl's between-the-legs, back-handed, breakaway face-melter. I honestly still cannot believe this happened in a real game. (SB Nation)

**Can Pekka Rinne rebound from a poor 2013-14? (On The Forecheck)

**EA Sports' big hockey release, NHL 15, has come under fire for the depiction of sexist "selfies," which are shown in a trailer for the Sept. 9 release. Let's hope this kind of stuff doesn't actually make it into the game. (Puck Daddy)

**Kevin Hayes and his monotone voice are excited to join the Rangers next season. We'll see if he's ultimately one the Blackhawks regret letting go. (Pro Hockey Talk)

**After two trades in as many hours this offseason, Sam Gagner is ready for a new start in Arizona. (Coyotes)

**The Sharks are moving Brent Burns back to the blue line after a transition to right wing midway through the 2012-13 season. Lots of changes for San Jose entering next season. (Sharks)
