    BEST view of a hockey brawl ever (NSFW language)

    From Wikipedia: In Canada, the term "college hockey" refers to community college and small college ice hockey that currently consists of a varsity conference—the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) -- and a club league—the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL). "University hockey" is the term used for hockey primarily played at four-year institutions; that level of the sport is governed by U Sports.

    Film about legendary goaltender Terry Sawchuk hits screens in March.

    Terrance Gordon "Terry" Sawchuk 1929 - 1970. Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame 1971.
  7. A simple copy/paste regarding this story, found at the cbc sports dot c'eh website. Mark O'Brien as Terry Sawchuk is shown in the file Goalie in this undated handout photo. Image: Sophie Giraud, The Canadian Press. This should be good.

    12/31 ...and Upwards GDT - Panthers @ Red Wings - 7:30 PM ET

    Year-end Minutiae: Tonight's game will be the twelfth New Year's Eve game to be played which also happens to be the halfway point of the season, the first being in 1946. As well, it's the fourth time within an eighty-two game schedule and the first time since 2001.

    12/27 Endurance GDT - Red Wings @ Penguins - 7:00 PM ET

    Something interesting I've found at this point of the season: Tonight marks game thirty-nine in the current schedule. Results can currently be put into one of two buckets, a Close Decision Game (CDG), decided either way by 1 or 2 goals or a Decisive Decision Game (DDG), decided either way by 3 or more goals. Since the 2005-06 season (because of the introduction of the shootout), a game result can only be one or the other, with CDG plus DDG being equal to the number of games played. Prior to 2004-05 and back in the day of tie games ('member them?), CDG plus DDG plus Tie games would equal the number of games played. At this point of the season, after 38 games, the Club has a CDG total of 33. All-time, this is one more than at the same point of the season in both 2008-09 and 2015-16. Currently, the Club has a DDG total of 5 after 38 games and this is where it gets interesting. This total is one fewer than the following seasons, in chronological order: 1936-37, 1940-41, 1959-60, 1986-87, 2008-09 and 2014-15, making 4 tie-game seasons and 2 shoutout seasons. Note: The interest level of others may vary.

    Interesting post-WJC period for some medal winners... being traded; three that I know of: Team USA (Max Jones) and Team Canada (Robert Thomas and Taylor Raddysh). Re: Following the Formenton goal, making it 3-1 in the Final. I hope Rasmus Dahlin killed that rat that he thought he saw on the top of the dasher board. That was quite a hissy fit he threw.

    I am surprised by this news. Until now, Seattleites' priority in professional sports put hockey at the bottom of their list. Fun Fact, via deadspin dot com:

If you look at the lower right, you can see a group of photographers, this is the spot where Frank Lennon and Denis Brodeur shot the goal from.

    As I have a vested interest in a player involved in one of the inaugural games played, I am tickled pink to read the news of this new site. More information can be gleaned at nhl dot calm.

    I'm guessing that this story, regarding some long overdue "statistical housekeeping", has something to do with NHL 100. From the CBC: Rocket Richard's points total rises to 966 after having assist restored. It's not as if any great injustice was done, but Montreal Canadiens legend Maurice Rocket Richard getting an assist added to his prodigious NHL scoring totals. Six years of poring over scoresheets and summaries of games between 1917 and 1987 by an NHL statistics team has found and fixed more than 6,000 bits of information that were overlooked or misregistered in the league's early eras. ... Also of note... Finding little gems of information like the Richard assist was one product of a massive undertaking to update and modernize the league database, which is to be re-launched this week.
