Maksim Sushko Lets His Play Do the Talking

Maksim Sushko is a Flyers draftee who rarely comes up in discussion. He’s very talented, he always looks good in camp and he performs on every team he’s on. It’s hard to explain. “Camp was a good experience for us. It’s been fun,” said Sushko. Last winter the 6-0, 179-pound right winger

Ho-Sang is Still Finding His Way With the Islanders
