    Two teenage girls in Manitoba have been charged with assault after a tournament hockey game ended in a bitter brawl. The girls, aged 14 and 13, play for the Lake Manitoba First Nation Eagles, who were up against the Stonewall Blues in a minor-league championship game. Tensions were high, and Lake Manitoba had been charged with numerous penalties throughout for their chippy play.

    The LA Kings have been on a roll of late, with two Stanley Cups in the last three seasons (and two in the last two full seasons, if you want to make it seem even better while simultaneously disrespecting the Chicago Blackhawks).

Are the Kings applying the same stifling defensive pressure in the bedroom of Trina and Dino Adam, the couple behind the suit, that they apply on the ice?

It could be the other way around too, depending on your view. Generally, the fans and the media laid off. Often, their right…

    Every year in the NHL, there are a dark horse players that come out of nowhere to post very impressive offensive numbers. Last year, Ondrej Palat and Reilly Smith scored 59 and 51 points respectively. Both had put up some good numbers in juniors and the minor leagues, but that level of production was not predicted by anyone. Who will be the Reilly Smith of 2014-15? (Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports) Predicting next year’s unlikely breakout candidate is not easy, but I would bet that one of these guys will be the Palat/Smith of 2014-15. In order to be considered a dark horse, a player must…

    Winnipeg Whiteout

  • Winnipeg likes to Pardy

    No this isn’t a remix of the Venga Boys hit from the 90′s, but it does seem as though Winnipeg Jets management sees something in Pardy that many of the fans didn’t. In all honesty the thirty year-old Pardy had a decent year. In fact, one could argue the best of his NHL career. He’s a fourth-line, utility player that goes out and gets the job done.

  • St. John’s IceCaps Season Review

    29 Jun 2014 | 7:47 am
    A season to remember It began as an all too regular regular season for the St. John’s IceCaps. Up until January 2014, the IceCaps had a 16-13-3 record, including a mediocre 4-5-1 October record. It certainly didn’t give any indication that this team would play in the Calder Cup just a few short months later. New Year, New Team I’m not sure what they had to drink on New Year’s. But it worked. Compiling a 30-10-4 record from January to April in the regular season (9-3 January, 8-3-1 February, 8-3-1 March, 5-1-2 April), the IceCaps secured fourth place in the Eastern…

  • Jets Goaltending – Pavelec doesn’t seem to be going anywhere

    6 May 2014 | 10:19 am
    The Jets head in to the off-season with numerous holes to fill. One of them is goaltending. To have a successful team in the NHL, a team must have good goaltending. This year, the Jets starting goalie Ondrej Pavelec had a season to forget. Despite that, at Kevin Cheveldayoff’s season end presser he said Pavelec was the team’s number one goaltender heading in to the next season. So by all indications made from the team, Ondrej Pavelec isn’t going anywhere. Breakdown In today’s NHL, goaltending is key. If you look at years past, goaltending has been a success for Stanley…

    Domenic Galamini (@MimicoHero) is a good follow on Twitter for his daily insights and data visualizations, usually with a Leafs focus. Yesterday, he put together an updated chart on the Leafs off-season additions and subtractions (stats encompass the last three seasons): Overall, the Leafs’ new additions have had their past linemates own more of the shot attempts with them than away from them. Better than the alternative, but what the Leafs’ coaching staff changes or

    The online hockey world reacted to news of the hiring of an assistant GM  like it was its own version of the LeBron sweepstakes when the Leafs brought aboard young hockey executive Kyle Dubas yesterday. That’s of little shock given the Maple Leafs had become such a flashpoint in the debate on the role and place of advanced stats/analytics in hockey-ops decisions in the past year and a half — achieving modest success for 110

    22 Jul 2014 | 5:52 pm
    July 22nd 2014, a date that will live in infamy.  The Toronto Maple Leafs hired Kyle Dubas, formerly the General Manager for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, former scout, agent, and fancy stats pioneer as assistant general manager. While he rankles at the comparison to famed Moneyball GM Billy Beane, Dubas does have the statistical bona fides to change the way game is being played in Toronto. Here are five key points from the hire:
