    Helicopter Hockey Is Now a Thing, and It Is Awesome (Video)

    Only a Canadian would ever say, “gee, I wonder if I could play hockey in a helicopter?” And only a Canadian would ever say, “oh man, that’s an awesome idea. I’ll help!” One morning in early December, somewhere in the Canadian Rockies, helicopter pilot Bradley Friesen woke up and decided it would be fun to […]

  • Stat Line of the Night – 12/10/2013 – Alex Ovechkin

    Stat Line of the Night – 12/10/2013 – Alex Ovechkin

    Remember three years ago when Alex Ovechkin lost his scoring touch and people were wondering if he’d ever be a prolific scorer again? Well, as it turns out, those “bad” seasons in which he averaged “only” 35 goals were merely aberrations. Last year he returned to form and cranked out 32 goals in 48 games. […]

    The Oilers’ Taylor Hall Scores a “Bra Trick”

    I never thought about it before, but the tradition of throwing your hat onto the ice after a player on the team you’re rooting for scores three goals in a hockey game is kind of outmoded, since people don’t really wear hats all that often anymore. But one woman at Thursday night’s game between the […]

    Nick Foligno Pulls a Tomas Hertl, Scores a Between-the-Legs Beauty (Video)

    Between the legs—that’s where all the cool kids are going in the NHL these days. First, of course, it was the Sharks’ 19-year-old Tomas Hertl, who announced his entry in the NHL with a four-goal performance against the Rangers on October 8 that was capped by a ridiculous between-the-legs top shelf breakaway goal. Then it was […]

    Cornell Freshman Goalie Mitch Gillam Makes NCAA Debut, Scores Goal (Video)

    Mitch Gillam, freshman goalie with the Cornell hockey team, made a pretty incredible debut during last night’s game against Niagara. Despite his position on the other end of the ice, he scored an empty-net goal on the opposing team, becoming only the third NCAA Division I goalie to successfully score a goal on his own shot. […]

    10 NHL Franchises Worth Less than the Dallas Cowboys…Combined

    Yesterday Forbes released their annual list of the NHL team values, and there’s good news and bad news. First the good news: the average value of an NHL team rose 46% in the last year, and it wasn’t just the big fish pulling everybody up. Even the little guys increased in value. Now the bad […]

    Stat Line of the Night — 11/25/2013 — Martin St. Louis

    Martin St. Louis may have to make do without Steven Stamkos for a few more months while his Lightning teammate recovers from a broken leg.  But even without his linemate, the 5’8″ winger didn’t seem to miss a single beat during last night’s contest against the New York Rangers. After being honored with a silver […]

    Penn State Hockey Fan Dances to Bon Jovi (GIF and Video)

    Apparently dancing to Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” at sporting events is the latest craze. It started here, and now it’s resurfaced in a slightly less polished form at a recent Penn State hockey game. What Penn State fan Devon Fields lacks in technical performance skill (it doesn’t look like he knows the lyrics […]

    These days, more and more NHL players are wearing those cute little half visors. Some of them (like the Sedin Twins) probably wear them to deter other guys from punching them, and a few others probably wear them because they thing it looks cool. The rest, however, are trying to prevent serious eye injuries. After […]

    This Day In Sports History (November 22nd) – Wayne Gretzky

    It was on this day in 1999 that Wayne Gretzky was inducted into the Hockey Hall Of Fame.  Gretzky became the tenth and last player to bypass the usual three-year waiting period. Wayne Gretzky being elected to the Hall-Of-Fame was a no-brainer, as he is considered by many to be the greatest player in hockey […]

    14 Awesome NHL Player of the Game Trophies

    You may not have realized it if you don’t follow the NHL that closely (or if your team is no fun), but there’s a really awesome trend sweeping the league these days: player of the game trophies. I’m not talking about official awards handed out by media or the league. I’m talking about handmade and/or found items […]
