    Hits to the head seem to be getting all of the attention in the NHL these days, as it almost feels like chief disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan has had a different case to review each day.

    Over one month ago, Pittsburgh Penguins enforcer Arron Asham knocked out Jay Bealge of the Washington Capitals and proceeded to taunt him seconds after.  Asham apologized for his actions immediately after the game, but the Caps still had a score to settle with the hard-throwing middleweight.

    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.
