Colorado Trades Jarome Iginla to Kings

The Colorado Avalanche have traded forward Jarome Iginla to the Los Angeles Kings for a conditional fourth-round pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. The 39-year-old Edmonton native has 19 years of NHL experience under his belt and still packs a punch. He has a lethal shot, even if his production has tapered off over […]

Making History: Alex Ovechkin Ties “Rocket” Richard

It goes without saying that Alex Ovechkin is a generational talent. He proved it again last night, scoring his 544th career goal and notching his 999th career point, thereby matching the goal-scoring total of Maurice “Rocket” Richard. The goal came in Montreal, which is perhaps fitting. Ovechkin’s Washington Capitals knocked off the Canadiens by a […]

Avalanche Eyeing Trades as Dismal Season Continues

The Colorado Avalanche occupy last place in the NHL and that means trade speculation is running rampant once more. The club has dropped four straight and holds 25 points, with even the lowly Arizona Coyotes two points ahead in the standings. And to think, Arizona has dropped seven in a row. Colorado has mustered just […]

Flames Stand By Their Men

The Calgary Flames have decided to stand by both Jarome Iginla and Darryl Sutter, demonstrating their belief in the core of the team. Calgary Flames president Ken King made sure that anyone doubting the safety of the team’s captain and general manager knew that he was standing behind both of his team’s components. There will […]

Jarome Iginla: “It’s Not Enough”

Jarome Iginla has taken the blame for the Flames’ lack of goal-scoring and admits he has struggled through this current NHL season. With Calgary in the bottom three of NHL teams in terms of scoring production, Iginla told the press on Tuesday that he hadn’t been doing enough to help change that. “I’m going to […]

Flames Still In Playoff Hunt

Calgary Flames fans are certainly being tested as of late with a number of close calls and near-misses from their beloved hockey club. The Flames have seen their playoff hopes fade only to rise again, so Wednesday night’s victory against the Phoenix Coyotes isn’t all that surprising. But the win does put the Flames into […]

The Babcock Plan Works: Canada Knocks Off Norway

By all accounts it looks as though coach Mike Babcock’s plan for Team Canada is working. He’s developed the chemistry and patience in his players and it paid off during the first game for Canada at the 2010 Olympics. Nobody expected Canada to actually lose to Norway, sure, but the game remained an intelligent opening […]

The Trouble with Calgary

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to suggest that there’s something wrong with the Calgary Flames. It also doesn’t take a professional statistician to determine that the biggest issue plaguing the Flames right now is scoring – or a lack of it. Indeed, the Flames are sitting in the bargain basement along with the Detroit […]

Olli Jokinen Turning Heads

Calgary Flames forward Olli Jokinen is off to a good start at training camp, doing more than his fair share of offensive production and proving to be one heck of a line-mate for Jarome Iginla. After being acquired last season by the Flames at the trade deadline, the former Phoenix Coyote chipped in for 15 […]

Bertuzzi Signs With Flames

The Calgary Flames will take a gamble on Todd Bertuzzi, signing him to a one-year contract worth $1.95 million. Bertuzzi could very well be a nice fit on the Flames, adding size and ice presence to a scoring line and perhaps making more space for the likes of Jarome Iginla and Calgary’s other offensive players.
