Armstrong Out Indefinitely, Kadri Called Up

The Toronto Maple Leafs have called up Nazem Kadri after an injury to Colby Armstrong. Kadri had just been sent down to the AHL and he was supposed to be practicing with the Marlies on Thursday, but he finds himself back in the big leagues and set to probably play when the Leafs take on […]

Opinion: Canuck Fans Sarcastically Cheer Luongo

Tuesday night saw the Vancouver Canucks get shut out by a score of 4-0 by the New York Rangers. It sure wasn’t a result any Vancouver fan or player wanted, but the crowd at Rogers Arena wasn’t happy taking their lumps quietly. Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo heard it from the hometown “faithful,” with fans sarcastically […]

Jets Get First Win Out of the Way

The 2011-2012 NHL season was always going to be a trying one for the Winnipeg Jets. It was always going to be a season of firsts: first face-offs, first points, first goals, first fights, first wins. Getting to those landmarks in the MTS Centre was always going to be big stuff, even as the players […]

Ryan Kesler Returns to Canucks’ Lineup

The Vancouver Canucks have some good news as Ryan Kesler is set to return to the lineup. He’ll lace the skates on Tuesday night when the ‘Nucks face off against the New York Rangers. “My hip is 100 percent,” Kesler declared. “I’m definitely not going out there to limp into the lineup. It has been […]

Sweet, Sweet Fantasy: Meet Marco Scandella

So far, the book on 21-year-old Marco Scandella is a bit of a mixed bag. Many first became acquainted with him after he was suspended for 15 games after elbowing Alexandre Durette of the Rimouski Oceanic in the head. This came after he returned from representing Canada at the 2010 World Junior Championships, helping the team win […]

Opinion: Don Cherry Apologizes for Coach’s Corner Remarks

Oh Don Cherry, I can’t stay mad at you. Canada’s loudmouth of choice has apologized for remarks he made on the October 6 edition of Coach’s Corner. Cherry called Chris Nilan, Stu Grimson and Jim Thomson “pukes” and “turncoats” for apparently speaking out on fighting in hockey. Many expressed that Cherry appeared to miss the point […]

DiPietro Out Indefinitely

New York Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro is out indefinitely with a concussion. He suffered the injury in practice when he took a Brian Rolston shot in the mask. DiPietro underwent tests on Thursday and it was determined that he had a concussion. The team made the announcement on Friday. The injury means that DiPietro’s troubles […]

Sweet, Sweet Fantasy: Looking at Nashville’s Hot Trio

The Nashville Predators boast the NHL’s best line, at least for now, and poolies would do well to pay attention. David Legwand is the current points leader with seven, including a four point night (two goals, two helpers) against the St. Louis Blues last night. The 31-year-old Detroit native is the highest-scoring Predator of all-time, […]

Opinion: Asham Admits His Post-Fight Actions Were “Classless”

After knocking out Washington’s Jay Beagle with two punches, Pittsburgh Penguins forward Arron Asham made the “now I lay me down to sleep” gesture as he skated to the penalty box. This, in hockey’s increasingly illogical realm, is considered a defiance of the code of honour. Asham, for his part, called his actions “classless” when […]

Crosby Cleared to Practice with Contact

There’s been a lot of news about Sidney Crosby, most of which falls into the category of uninteresting. But the latest word out of the Penguins’ camp is that their number one guy is ready to practice – with contact. “I’m cleared for full contact. It’s a good step in the right direction,” Crosby said.
