Questions For Khan

from Ansar Khan of Mlive, Who is ready for a breakout season? Or, I guess, who has the most room for improvement or will take the biggest leap? A: Production-wise, they need Dylan Larkin to take the biggest leap after a disappointing season in which he put up only nine goals and 23 points in 44 games. Much depends on his health after a late-season neck injury. Having a healthy Tyler Bertuzzi will help Larkin, but it also remains to be seen how quickly Bertuzzi can return to form follo...

Southern California counties grow while much of the nation shrinks

While most counties across the United States saw their populations shrink over the past decade, U.S. Census data released Thursday shows every county in Southern California grew from 2010 to 2020 — thanks largely to increases among communities of color. America takes a head count every 10 years so governments can use the data to redraw boundaries of political districts, ensuring population is evenly spread among them. How those lines are drawn could help determine which party controls the U.S. H...
