    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Ladd vs. Skille — 10/31/11

    Andrew Ladd of the Winnipeg Jets recorded an assist and scored the game-winning goal in the shootout last night, but his most impressive contribution during the Jets’ 4-3 victory over the Florida Panthers came two minutes into the third period when he dropped the gloves with Jack Skille. Skille knocked Jets’ defenseman Tobias Enstrom out […]

    12 Scariest Hockey Masks

    Today marks the 52nd anniversary of one of the most iconic artifacts in professional sports: the hockey goalie mask. On November 1, 1959, in a game against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden, legendary Montreal Canadiens netminder Jacques Plante became the first goalie in the NHL to wear a mask that entirely covered his face.

    Halloween is here!

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Prust vs. Glass — 10/24/11

    There was only one fight in the NHL last night, but it was a good one.  It came only a few minutes into a game between the New York Rangers and Winnipeg Jets, as Brandon Prust and Tanner Glass exchanged punches for an action-packed 50 seconds of fisticuffs.  The Rangers and the Jets aren’t exactly […]

  • Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Tootoo vs. Volpatti — 10/20/11

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Tootoo vs. Volpatti — 10/20/11

    At 5-foot-9, 199-pounds, Nashville Predators forward Jordin Tootoo may not be the most imposing figure on the ice, but don’t let that fool you.  Those punches still have plenty of power behind them. Vancouver Canucks forward Aaron Volpatti may have been fooled by Tootoo’s size when he dropped the gloves with him during the second […]

    Frozen Fisticuffs Fight Of The Night — Engelland vs. Thorburn — 10/17/11

    Going forward, we expect it will be tough for any of the NHL’s combatants to match the performance put forth by Cam Janssen and Brian McGrattan over the weekend. Despite giving it their best shot, Deryk Engelland of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chris Thorburn of the Winnipeg Jets couldn’t place themselves among the early nominees […]

    9 Most Badass Enforcers In NHL History

    It appears that the old-fashioned NHL enforcer may be an endangered species. With what we now know about the long-term danger of concussions, plus the recent rash of tragic deaths of NHL tough guys, there’s just no room in hockey anymore for guys whose only skill is beating other guys to a pulp. Some hockey […]

    9 Best 3rd Jerseys In The NHL

    For NHL teams, third jerseys are huge cash cows. That’s because gullible hockey fans (like myself) will go out and buy the third jersey replicas the day they are released, even though they already own their teams’ “regular” jerseys. On top of that, historic franchises (like the Rangers or Maple Leafs) can change up these […]

    9 Sexy Hockey Fans

    Chicks dig hockey. It’s a scientific fact that the NHL has more hot girls per capita than any other sport in North America (except college football). There just seems to be something about big athletic guys knocking each others’ teeth out that appeals to the female demographic. So if you’ve always been kind of interested […]

    Picture Of The Day: Gretzky’s Daughter Is A “Great One”

    Most people probably thought that Wayne Gretzky’s sperm would be capable of creating the next greatest hockey player to take the NHL by storm.  That hasn’t been the case.  Instead, what the Great One’s baby batter has created is a first baseman for the Chicago Cubs, and a lovely lady by the name of Paulina […]

    13 NHL Careers Cut Short By Concussions

    The 2011-12 NHL season is only a month away, but people who follow the league aren’t talking about Stanley Cup contenders and pretenders, hot prospects, or big trade buzz. Instead, everyone is talking about concussions, and whether the best hockey player in the world, Sidney Crosby, will even play this year. There are even some […]
