    Check Out This Crazy Hockey Collision Between a Player and a Goalie (Video)

    Minor hockey goaltender Jake Theut is one fearless dude. During a recent game, the Michigan native, who plays for the St. Mary’s Lincolns in Canada’s Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League, initiated a risky maneuver that flipped Josh Kerstner of the Sarnia Legionnaires head-over-heels. Following a blocked shot, Kerstner found himself skating full speed on a breakaway […]

    This Day In Sports History (December 21st) – Martin Brodeur

    It was on this day in 2009 that New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur recorded his 104th regular season shutout.  As a result, Brodeur broke the record for most career shutouts, which was previously held by Terry Sawchuk. Terry Sawchuk’s record lasted nearly 40 years and at the time of his retirement many experts believed […]

    Sidney Crosby Plays Goalie for Local Ball Hockey Team

    When Sidney Crosby played his last NHL game, he did so as arguably the league’s best player. When he plays his next NHL game, he may do so as the league’s best up-and-coming goalie. Okay, so that probably won’t end up happening, but who knows?  If this lockout lasts long enough, Crosby may get enough […]

    Watch This Guy Jump Over 14 Kids on Ice Skates (Video)

    So, what’s your position on a guy with razor-sharp blades of steel strapped to his feet jumping over a row of children? Are you for it, or against it? Personally, though I wouldn’t say I’m 100% against it, I’m not completely comfortable with the idea, either. Or at least I wouldn’t be if it were […]

    Introducing Nintendo’s “Ice Hockey: Lockout Edition” (Video)

    The NHL lockout has now reached 80 days, and there are no signs of a resolution. The players have made what they call “major concessions” which the league rejected as nonsense. And the league has made what they call “major concessions” which the players have rejected as nonsense. Now they’ve called in a federal mediator, […]

    Every year, in the weeks leading up to Christmas, the Calgary Hitmen hold an event known as “The Teddy Bear Toss.” The Hitmen, in case you didn’t realize, are a junior hockey team (named after legendary WWE wrestler Brett “The Hitman” Hart) that play in Canada’s WHL and are owned by the Calgary Flames. When […]

    Russian Youth Hockey Game Called Off After Multiple Line Brawls (Video)

    The next time Don Cherry either insinuates or openly asserts that Russian hockey players are soft and don’t know how to mix it up, kindly direct him to this video. Because, obviously, the next generation of Russian players have taken the hockey oracle’s critique to heart and have overcorrected just a bit. What am I […]

    Watch This Drunk Hockey Fan Ruin A Flash Mob In Sudbury (Video)

    Personally I’m getting a little tired of the whole flash mob thing. That being said, I readily admit that they can still be fairly entertaining if they are well-organized and carried out with precision. That means showing up on time, knowing the moves, and doing them well. The guy you’re about to see in the […]

    13 People Who Need the NHL Lockout to End Right Now

    Since the NHL lockout began two months ago, much of the hockey-loving public’s attention has been focused on who’s right and who’s wrong. Is it the owners being too greedy? Is all this stuff about redefining hockey-related revenue nonsense? Or do they have a point—are the players asking for too much in a time when […]

    Check Out This WWE Style Hockey Brawl Courtesy of the AHL (Video)

    I miss the NHL as much as anybody, but I have to admit that there is an awful lot to like about those lesser-known hockey leagues. For one thing, you have awesome team names you don’t get in the NHL, like the Adirondack Phantoms, Charlotte Checkers, Lake Eerie Monsters, and Rockford IceHogs. And for another […]
