    Hockey Stick Gets Stuck in Visor of Oilers’ Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (GIF)

    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 […]

    This Day In Sports History (November 14th) — Gordie Howe

    It was on this day in 1964 that Gordie Howe set the record for most career NHL goals, with his 627th. The 1964-65 season was Howe’s 19th in the league, and while it certainly wasn’t his best, it was still pretty impressive, as the 36-year-old (at the time) recorded 29 goals, 47 assists and 104 […]

    The 13 Greatest Goalie Fights in NHL History

    We’re supposed to disapprove of line brawls in hockey because they make the game look silly and barbaric. However, I don’t really buy that. I think the regular fights we see today—the ones where guys agree to fight each ahead of time, for no reason, and then throw down as soon as the puck drops—those […]

    This year, Marty the Marmot, mascot of the Victoria (British Columbia) Royals of the Western Hockey League, was officially named “Favorite Mascot of the Year” by mascotinsider.com, defeating such world famous mascots as Benny the Bull (Chicago Bulls) and the Sausages (Milwaukee Brewers) in the final round of voting. So that should tell you how […]

    Pascal Dupuis Pulls Out His Own Teeth, Doesn’t Miss a Shift (Video)

    There’s really not much point debating which sport has the toughest athletes. You could make a strong case for a number of them, especially football and rugby. Hell, even basketball, baseball, and tennis might have their proponents.  Soccer, golf, and bowling? Not so much. That being said, if you wanted to make a case for […]

    17 NHL Players You Just Want to Punch in the Face

    You know what I love about hockey? I love the way certain players just piss me off. I know that sounds crazy, but I really do. “Hating” other teams and players, which isn’t real hate (usually), is fun. It gets your blood pumping and your juices flowing, and that makes you feel alive. Can players […]
