  • Returning Solder Surprises Family During Coyotes Puck Drop (Video)

    Returning Solder Surprises Family During Coyotes Puck Drop (Video)

    Ceremonial puck drops are a pretty pointless exercise, just like throwing out the first pitch, or having a celebrity call a coin toss. However, they do afford NHL teams the chance to do things like reunite deployed soldiers with their families.  So they’ve certainly got some sentimental value, even if dropping a puck before a […]

    Jimmy Fallon Drops His Hilarious Superlatives on NHL Players (Video)

    We’re knocking on the door of the NHL playoffs, which start in just a week, and while that might be news to many American viewers, Jimmy Fallon and the Tonight Show decided to give them an education on hockey’s elite with his trademark superlatives. And while making fun of hockey players is sort of like […]

    Russian Hockey Coach Loses His Shirt in Sexy, Sexy Brawl (Video)

    What is it about Russians running around with no shirts on? We see Putin running around on horsebacks and fishing without a shirt, and now we’ve got a Russian hockey coach (who kind of looks like Putin) on the ice after a brawl, completely shirtless. The whole video, even outside of the shirtless Russian hockey […]

  • Dustin Byfuglien Delivers Nasty Crosscheck to J. T. Miller’s Neck (Video)

    Dustin Byfuglien Delivers Nasty Crosscheck to J. T. Miller’s Neck (Video)

    Winnipeg Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien didn’t receive a penalty for this nasty crosscheck to the back of J.T. Miller‘s neck during the New York Rangers’ 3-2 victory over the Jets last night. That angered Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault, who said the cross-check “could have broken (Miller’s) neck.” But he’ll likely be happy to hear […]

  • Red Wings Forward Drew Miller Takes Skate to Face (Video + Pic)

    Red Wings Forward Drew Miller Takes Skate to Face (Video + Pic)

    Detroit Red Wings forward Drew Miller is an extremely lucky man. That probably sounds strange to you, seeing as how his face was slashed open by a hockey skate on Tuesday night. But when you consider the fact that the skate whacked him right across the right eye, and when you see the grisly photo […]

  • 9 Year-Old Girl Nails Center Ice Shot at an AHL Game (Video)

    9 Year-Old Girl Nails Center Ice Shot at an AHL Game (Video)

    I’m not sure what drew the masses to the Charlotte Checkers AHL game a few nights back, but they likely found that the game was well worth the price of admission after seeing 9 year-old Karleigh Nalette nail a shot from center ice. And it wasn’t like this was some open goal. Nope. Karleigh managed to […]

  • Patrik Nemeth Gets Puck Wedged Between His Visor and Face (Video)

    Patrik Nemeth Gets Puck Wedged Between His Visor and Face (Video)

    I think we can safely file this play under “Close Calls.” The Stars‘ Patrik Nemeth was minding his own business, as hockey players so often do, when he lifted his head up to find that a simple dump-in from a Calgary player had turned him into a pirate. Not an actual pirate, but the puck got […]

    Watch Andre Deveaux Attack a Player During Warm-Ups (GIF)

    The name Andre Deveaux might not mean a lot to you. He used to play in the NHL, but now it looks like his biggest claim to fame is a nefarious one. Andre Deveaux was sitting idly by during warm-ups before a Swedish playoff game when he just blindsided opponent Per Helmersson with a slash […]

    Buffalo Sabres Fans Cheer Team’s OT Loss vs. Coyotes (Video)

    What would cause a fan of a team to cheer against that very team he roots for?  The answer to that question is Connor McDavid, the most highly-touted NHL prospect since Sidney Crosby. In 2012, McDavid was granted Exceptional Player status by Hockey Canada, allowing him to begin his OHL career at the age of […]

    Jared Boll Uppercut Knocks Clayton Stoner to the Ice (Video)

    When the rest of the NHL’s enforcers see the power behind this Jared Boll uppercut, which knocked the Anaheim Ducks’ Clayton Stoner on his rear during last night’s game in Columbus, they’ll probably decide that it’s best to steer clear of the Blue Jackets tough-guy during future encounters. Check it out: You don’t see the […]
