A lot of teams are celebrating their heritage this year, which means lots of jerseys are being unveiled. Some have been good and some have been bad. When the Philadelphia Flyers unveiled their own creation, the consensus was that the jerseys were less than stellar.
After complaints about low goal scoring in hockey, it seemed like changes were going to be inevitable. We even covered it back in March when the league said they would be changing equipment for this upcoming season. They were hopeful to implement it for the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, but now it looks like any […]
Everyone, including hockey players and hockey media, love Bruce Springsteen. I don’t know whether it is a nostalgia kick or something else, but everyone seemingly loves him. Jakub Voracek on the other hand really loves him as evidenced by the video below.
Pavel Datsyuk is showing no signs of slowing down in the KHL even at the age of 38. With SKA Saint Petersburg trailing with less than a minute in the game, Datsyuk received a long pass off of his skate, knocked the puck past the defender and roofed a beauty with four seconds left. Datsyuk already […]
You didn’t really think Don Cherry would stay out of the Colin Kaepernick story, did you?
Statues are normally reserved for legendary figures that changed a sport. Like Michael Jordan outside of the United Center in Chicago or Wayne Gretzky outside of Rexall Place in Edmonton. So why the hell did a team in the KHL decide to make a statue for a cat outside of their arena? It may have […]
The Columbus Blue Jackets selected Pierre-Luc Dubois with the third overall pick at the 2016 NHL Draft. Though Dubois didn’t grab all of the headlines, he’s still confident he could be the best rookie to skate in the NHL in 2016-17 … if he makes the NHL roster. Dubois recently spoke with NHL.com and stated he […]
Unless you’ve managed to completely tune out the sporting world over the past several days (we’re jealous if you have), you’ve probably heard of Colin Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the U.S. national anthem. Just about every sporting news outlet has created a hot take on his decision which frankly only represents how little real news there is […]
The Pittsburgh Penguins might be without Phil Kessel for the start of the 2016-17 season.
As the league begins to embrace analytical approaches, some are still doing it better than others. You have the obvious teams like the Toronto Maple Leafs, Florida Panthers and Arizona Coyotes buying in, but maybe it is time to include the Dallas Stars on that list. Jim Nill, the current general manager of the Dallas […]
Hockey has a tough time generating interest despite the fast nature of the sport. Sometimes you have to think outside the box to get attention. In the case of HC Davos of the Swiss National League A, they decided to do ridiculous headshots. The results are definitely mixed, but they’re certainly unique.
Canada takes their hockey very seriously. Even their criminals embrace the sport, as evidenced by this person in full goalie gear robbing a Canadian beer store in Russell, Manitoba.
The St. Louis Blues have been planning on having Vladimir Sobotka back in their lineup for the 2016-17 season, but whether or not he’ll actually appear remains a mystery. Sobotka bolted from the Blues in favor of the KHL after an arbitration decision back in 2014, but due to the ruling, he still owes the […]
Twitter is a fun medium for hockey fans and even hockey teams to poke fun at their rivals. The NHL’s official account asked a simple question – Which defensemen will put up the most points? – and the Senators put the ball on a tee for the Penguins to knock off. The Penguins responded with: The […]
If you watch any hockey, you know how tough the internal dialogue can be when watching fighting. While they are doing it for our entertainment, the people doing it are still people. The damage that is done when fighting can sometimes last a lifetime. In the trailer for Ice Guardians, a documentary about the perils […]
