New goalie equipment won’t be in the NHL until 2017-18

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.

KHL team immortalizes adopted cat with statue outside of their arena

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.

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 […]

European hockey team HC Davos has the oddest/best team headshots

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.
