Hello there, Friday.
The most casual business day has reclaimed its spot atop our "Best Day of the Week" power rankings, after being de-throned last week by Saturday. What was so great about last Saturday? Simple: we hosted our Open House event, and it had a special guest.

Nick Bjugstad's season got off to a tough start, as he missed the first 19 games with an upper-body injury. While the 6-foot-6 forward worked through some injuries and tough puck luck this season, he's already laser-focused on helping the team win again next year.
"I like this team and I want to do whatever I can," he told FloridaPanthers.com's Jameson Olive. "Whether it's third-line, fourth-line, or whatever, I'll play any position."
This week, it was Bjugstad's turn to be featured in our Season Rewind series - which includes a video of every goal he scored this season - so go ahead and check that out here.
