WARNING: THERE ARE PUCKDOKU SPOILERS AHEAD. DO NOT CONTINUE SCROLLING IF YOU DON’T WANT TODAY’S PUZZLE SPOILED FOR YOU.
The new game “Puckdoku” is taking the hockey world by storm. Here’s how it works. There’s a 3×3 grid, and each row and column are marked with either a team or a statistic of some sort. You have to guess players who meet the criteria for both the column and the row for the square you’re on. For example…if your square is in the Toronto Maple Leafs’ column and the St. Louis Blue row…Ryan O’Reilly would work. If it’s in the Washington Capitals column and the row says “40+ goals in a season”, Alex Ovechkin would work. You can play the daily Puckdoku puzzle here:
There’s also a rarity score in the form of a percentage next to the player you guess…the lower the percentage, the more rare the guess. Once you start getting used to the game, you want to shoot for a low rarity score. 
Without further ado, here are some hints for today’s Puckdoku puzzle.
