  • High School Hockey Player Scores, Presses The Easy Button (Video)

    High School Hockey Player Scores, Presses The Easy Button (Video)

    When David Goodwin of De Smet Jesuit High School’s varsity hockey team toe-dragged the puck into the center of the ice and roofed it over the opposing goaltender, he couldn’t have made it look any easier.  And in an effort to ensure that everyone in attendance was aware of just how easy scoring that goal […]

    Hockey Double Entendre Gives Alex Trebek The Giggles (Video)

    A few years back we provided readers with a look at some of the double entendres one may find within the game of hockey.  It appears as though Jeopardy’s Alex Trebek has added another one to that list. While getting to know his contestants during Thursday night’s airing of the popular game show, reigning champion […]

  • Kings Pay Tribute To Ryan Smyth With Practice Mullets (Video)

    Kings Pay Tribute To Ryan Smyth With Practice Mullets (Video)

    Partick Kane’s playoff mullet was quite impressive, but there may be no player currently in the game of hockey whose name is more synonymous with the mullet than the Kings’ Ryan Smyth.  So with Smyth getting set to play in his 1000th career NHL game this past Saturday night at home against the Nashville Predators, […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — A One-Punch KO From The WHL — 11/2/10

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — A One-Punch KO From The WHL — 11/2/10

    If the pros aren’t going to entertain us with some fisticuffs, the juniors certainly will.  Yesterday was just another one of those days.  Four NHL games. Zero fights.  However, the Western Hockey League players weren’t giving their fists the night off.  A game between the Prince George Cougars and the Kelowna Rockets featured two fight […]

    Ice Dogs’ Ryan Strome Scores A Dandy (Video)

    After a somewhat quiet rookie season in the OHL, the Niagara Ice Dogs’ Ryan Strome has come on strong in his sophomore season, recording 9 goals and 17 assists in only 16 games.  And while his 1.625 point per game average is quite impressive, it is the manner in which he has been scoring his […]

    Picture Of The Day: You Did What For Those Seats?

    This picture was spotted on ESPN’s in-game photos of Saturday night’s NHL contest between the Pittsburgh Penguins and the St. Louis Blues.  It has since been taken off ESPN’s website, but it still leaves us asking the following question: Have the St. Louis Blues become so desperate to get rid of tickets that they are […]

  • Meet The Dallas Stars Ice Girls In All Their Bikini Glory (Video)

    Meet The Dallas Stars Ice Girls In All Their Bikini Glory (Video)

    Perhaps the greatest innovation to the game of hockey over the past decade has been the introduction of the Ice Girls.  Not all teams have adopted this trend, and I can’t help but wonder why.  After all, when your team is not scoring goals, what better way to entertain the fans than by throwing some […]

    Picture Of The Day: Kiss And Make Up

    If only every hockey fight would end like this, perhaps there would be a lot less people asking to have them banned from the game. The one thing many of us will always remember most about Brad May is Rick Jeanneret’s famous “May Day!” call after the Sabres’ tough guy scored the series-clinching goal in […]

  • Greatest NHL Player: Wayne Gretzky vs. Mario Lemieux (Infographic)

    Greatest NHL Player: Wayne Gretzky vs. Mario Lemieux (Infographic)

    Who is currently the best player in the NHL?  Such a question would likely bring about a few different answers.  While most would opt for Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin, others might deviate from the norm and say Jonathan Toews, Steven Stamkos, or maybe even Henrik Sedin.  It is not an easy choice, but what […]

    Identical Twins (GIF)

    Many hockey fans believe that Daniel and Henrik Sedin have an advantage on the ice because of a special sense they both share as twins.  To justify their argument, some have pointed to this unbelievable goal that they manufactured together at the end of last season.  It is hard to argue that there is not […]

  • Hockey Player Scores Soccer-Style Goal

    Hockey Player Scores Soccer-Style Goal

    Sure, the World Cup may be over, but it appears as though some athletes in Switzerland are still caught up in the soccer fever that plagued their nation throughout the entire summer.  One of those athletes is the young Silvio Schöb, who had this soccer-style hockey goal for us. I know parents these days want […]

  • Prince of Wales Trophy Engraving Error

    Prince of Wales Trophy Engraving Error

    Nobody expected the seven-seed Philadelphia Flyers to make it all the way to the Stanley Cup. I’m not even sure they believed they’d make it to the playoffs, needing a late-season run and an OT-winner in the final regular season game to clinch. Then they surely couldn’t believe they’d make it to the third round. […]

    9 Truly Unique Sports Venues from Around the World

    When it comes to sports venues, it’s usually pretty cut and dry. There’s the field of play, the seats for spectators, some bathrooms, some concessions, and that’s about it. Even venues that are considered to have character (Wrigley Field, Fenway, etc.) pretty much follow the same formula. But if you search hard enough, you’ll find […]
