  • NHL facing Canadian dollar panic?

    Greg Wyshynski
    25 Oct 2014 | 6:58 am
    What happens when your economic engine begins to sputter? By some estimates, roughly one third of hockey-related revenue is generated by the NHL’s seven Canadian teams. For several years, one of the reasons the League’s been fat and happy was the thriving Canadian dollar; but some claim that it could drop to $0.85 against the American dollar by next year.  Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette asks what the impact might be on the NHL as oil prices and the value of the Canadian dollar continue to plummet: Because NHL salaries are paid in U.S. dollars, all the Canadian teams will feel a…

  • Leon Draisaitl scores, fist pumps and celebrates

    Josh Cooper
    24 Oct 2014 | 10:08 pm
    Through seven NHL games there was fear, worry and anxiety that Edmonton rookie Leon Draisaitl should, dare we say it, turn into another Nail Yakupov. After all, the 18-year-old Draisaitl, the No. 3 pick in the 2014 draft, had just two points.  Worry no more. In game eight he has scored.  Sarcasm aside, at very least we found out he has the whole celeberation thing down sort of like the 2012 No. 1 pick who has become somewhat of a pariah in Edmonton. Behold Draisaitl's first NHL goal, which was game-winner in the Oilers' 6-3 win over Carolina.  You gotta love the fist pump and him knocking…
  • Cam Atkinson takes a skate to the face from Ryan Kesler

    24 Oct 2014 | 9:42 pm
    Some scary stuff in Anaheim. Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson took a skate to the face from Ducks forward Ryan Kesler midway through the third period of Friday's contest. Linked is the gif from Warning, it's somewhat graphic.  The play clearly looked unintentional from Kesler's end. Atkinson fortunately wears a visor, and skated off the ice, but was looked at by a trainer. He went to the locker room clutching his face with a towel.  Notes Columbus Dispatch beat reporter Aaron Portzline who is on the scene, Atkinson appears to not have sustained damage to his eye.  Told #CBJ…
  • Jonathan Drouin fires first NHL goal

    Josh Cooper
    24 Oct 2014 | 7:45 pm
    People in Halifax are used to seeing Jonathan Drouin score points in bunches. That’s because he did so in junior for the Mooseheads.  Maybe it’s time for people in Tampa to start expecting the same from Drouin. The rookie, and third overall pick in the 2013 NHL draft, fired his opening salvo for the Calder Trophy with his first NHL goal as part of a two-point night against the Winnipeg Jets. Below is the score: It’s not quite like his famous shift from junior but still impressive.

    The Worcester Sharks managed to get their Friday night contest at the DCU Center against the Syracuse Crunch game into overtime with an extra attacker goal after being outplayed for most of the early parts of the contest, but for the first time this season couldn’t capitalize on the open ice of the new three on three extra session in the AHL and instead found themselves having to kill a penalty.

    Award-winning author Roland Merullo loves hockey (and donuts) as much as I do. He wrote something to that effect to me and then signed his name in the copy of Lunch with Buddha I had purchased. I haven’t read all of his books, such as the one with a donut on the cover, but I will buy them because I anticipate more hockey, more donut references. But it’s more than that. The magic of Merullo is his thought-provoking style of storytelling. He makes me question my own behavior and beliefs but not in a Thou-shalt, heavy-handed fashion. His fiction is unique yet real, affirming and…

    Jesus loves donuts. I know this because I read it in a wonderful novel: American Savior, by Roland Merullo. A best-selling and award-winning author, Merullo tends to inject subtle donut and/or hockey references into his books. I read Breakfast with Buddha in 2012 and Lunch with Buddha in 2013. Both are gripping stories with believable characters. They traverse America in pursuit of food and spiritual nourishment, but neither novel features a character who loves donuts as much as Jesus. On the campaign trail that crisscrosses the United States—Jesus is running for president—the candidate…

At least from real competitive hockey. Maybe not, though, from pick-up activity. My return to any form of significant exercise other than walking will depend upon what magic the hockey goods might contribute to my healing.

In my post about the Dayton Demonz game, there is a picture of the FHL logo from one of the off-ice official’s jackets.  You can see her hand holding it straight for me.  After the game, I met up with her in the pub, and she handed me the puck on the right.   The puck on the left was one I bought in the gift shop.  The one on the right was one of the three that slipped under the Zamboni doors during play.  She grabbed it for me.  Awesome, right?

    Friday night, I was in Dayton, OH for my first Federal Hockey League game.  The arena, the game, the fans, it was what they refer to in Slap Shot as old-time hockey.  There were a few fights.  Arguments with refs took precedence over face-offs.  The tickets were cheap.  In short, it was everything you want in a minor league hockey game. 150 miles away in Toledo, OH, the feeling was completely different.  This wasn’t your beer-swilling, fist-pumping, stained-ceiling-tile hockey game.  This was the other end of the spectrum. Toledo is home to one of the most famous minor league…

I’ve seen all the teams on the west coast of the United States.  I took a road trip to every team in the 14-team UHL.  AHL, ECHL, SPHL, OHL, yadda yadda yadda.  Compared to some, it’s not much, but for a guy on a limited budget, it’s not bad.  One league I had never witnessed was the Federal Hockey League.

    Every time I see a hockey game in a new venue, I commemorate it by purchasing a puck.  I’ve gotten some cool ones and a few rather lame.  These are the ones I got this time. The Keystone Ice Miners one is an “Inaugural Season” puck.  Meg said it would be worth something some day.  I said, yeah, like my Roanoke Valley Vipers puck.  Which made us laugh, because who? The Nailers one is a puck from past season.  That was all they had for sale.  They are getting new ones in on Wednesday.  Considering how much I liked the Nailers jerseys, I would have preferred one in…

    The way I travel to hockey games is somewhat flawed.  Too often, I pull in to town only an hour or two before a game, which doesn’t give much time to get the real feel of a city.  I roam around, looking at what I can look at, maybe grab a meal rather than being subjected to arena food, then head to the game before warm-ups. Wheeling, WV was the same way, which is too bad.  There has to be more to Wheeling than the downtown area, where the WesBanco Arena resides, would lead you to believe. The Wheeling Nailers have the distinction of being the longest-serving team in the ECHL, now…

  • Not Good News For The NHL, The Canadian Dollar Is Dropping

    25 Oct 2014 | 6:05 am
    from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette, The Canadian dollar has been steadily losing value vis-à-vis its U.S. counterpart. It dropped below 90 cents this week and economists see a further decline in the future. A CIBC report said the loonie could fall to 82 cents early next year. What does this mean for the NHL? The league has enjoyed a dramatic rise in revenues over the past decade despite two potentially devastating lockouts. We would like to give NHL commissioner Gary Bettman credit for growing the business, but the driving force behind the increase has been a healthy Canadian…

Winnipeg gave too many open looks to Tampa’s big guns and the visitors didn’t miss when given the chance. Jets coach Paul Maurice is quickly finding out he’s got even more of a challenge on his hands than he might have expected. His group is mentally soft and doesn’t have a compass. Inconsistency has been the hallmark of this club since it moved to Winnipeg and Maurice is the man now tasked with determining how to stamp out that insidious trait. The Jets…

I discovered the Amerks after moving to Rochester for college and I only became a season ticket holder in 2011. My interest in the team coincided with the discovery of accounting discrepancies involving then team owner Steve Donner. Countless changes resulted. An awkward dual affiliation with the Florida Panthers was signed along side the existing Buffalo Sabres affiliation. This dual affiliation coupled with continued financial…

    It is widely believed that the balance of power in the NHL these days is heavily weighted in the Western Conference. With the last three Stanley Cups going to the Los Angeles Kings, Chicago Blackhawks and Los Angeles Kings respectively, it is an easy assessment to make. And that doesn't even take into account the other contenders like the Anaheim Ducks, San Jose Sharks and St. Louis Blues. Yet, when it comes to the game's most important position - goaltending - the Eastern Conference seems to have a wide edge when it comes to the last line of defense. That said, the goaltending in the west is…

Ben Smith kicked off the scoring in the first for Chicago after a bevy of pressure by the Predators in Chicago's own zone. The lead disappeared after Neal scored a hat trick: once late in the first period, once late in the second, and then again in the…
  • Watch: James Neal's Hat Trick

    Jonathan Garcia
    23 Oct 2014 | 7:25 pm
    He's kind of a big deal. Since the trade, James Neal has had a weight on his shoulders to score goals. It's something Predators fans haven't seen one player do consistently for... well, ever. When his first few games didn't go the way people expected them to, many pundits in the media snarked about how he wasn't going to cut it without Evgeni Malkin. All those pundits can shut up now. Early in the third period against the Chicago Blackhawks, Neal recorded his third goal of the night for his first hat trick in Nashville. Here's hoping many, many more follow. Relive them with us: The first goal…

    Close your eyes and picture the scene. It’s a cold February Saturday. The cloudless blue sky and bright sun beam down onto a small lake, bespeckled by a half-dozen outdoor hockey rinks. On the rinks, red cheeks huff and frozen vapor puffs as skates and sticks combine to make hockey’s unmistakable percussion. Fans ring the rinks, cheering on goals and shouting encouragement. In the snowbanks, juice boxes await the postgame… Wait, what? You read that right. For the players in this unique tournament, the postgame beer is still a decade or more away. The tournament in question…
  • We’re Writing A Backyard Rink Book!

    Well, I guess I just gave it away now, didn’t I. Forgive me for being a little excited. Ever since I started this blog and began adding how-to articles for the beginning rinkbuilder, I had my eyes set on some sort of book. Up until this past spring, I always figured it would be some sort of homegrown e-book, something that would incorporate all of our articles into one tidy package, which we could sell on the site for a small fee. Like many of my ideas, I sat on it and never really acted on the idea. Then an unsolicited email I received in February reignited those plans and then some.

  • How To Stack and Store Your Nicerink Rink Parts

    Joe Proulx
    23 Apr 2014 | 7:40 pm
    We’ve built north of 50 Nicerinks in the New England area in the past few years wearing our Elite Backyard Rinks hats. And while we can throw together a rink in short order, I’ll admit, an efficient offseason storage solution for Nicerink brackets and boards eluded me until this season. Before this year, I’d put the boards in one stack, the brackets in another jumbled pile (or try to fit them into a box), and call it a day. We began offering storage this year, and with several customers taking us up on the offer, it was about time I figured out how best to store the parts in…

  • Can Blackhawks’ Fitness Make Up for Lack of Depth?

    Michael Szwaja
    25 Oct 2014 | 7:10 am
    The Blackhawks lost in the Western Conference Final last year, not because Nick Leddy stepped in front of a weak shot, but because they were gassed. Kings coach Darryl Sutter rolled all his lines and was confident in all six of his defensemen. Quenneville meanwhile scratched and clawed his way through the seven game series relying heavily on the top half of his squad. Darryl Sutter used a deep Kings team to beat the Blackhawks in last season’s Western Conference Final.(Jim O’Connor-US PRESSWIRE) Up against the cap, Quenneville knew his team wouldn’t get deeper, so what did he…

    Mika Zibanejad is off to a slow start, but can he turn it around? (Marc DesRosiers-USA TODAY Sports) Mika Zibanejad of the Ottawa Senators is off to a slow start. Many had him penciled in as the second line center for the Senators this season, but so far he has failed to show that he belongs in the top six through five games this season. Zibanejad started off this season in a different position from last year. After a poor training camp, he began the 2013-14 season down with the Binghamton Senators. He registered seven points in six games while playing with the club’s AHL Affiliate.
  • Will the Kings’ Jonathan Quick Win the Vezina This Year?

    Walter McLaughlin
    25 Oct 2014 | 3:04 am
    It goes without saying that it’s early, thus any recitation of stats has to be taken with a grain of salt. One bad game can skew the numbers quickly, and the statistical leaders are likely to swap positions all season long. However, when you’re two-time Stanley Cup champion Jonathan Quick, Vezina voters listen. Ok, so maybe not literally, since the Kings’ star goaltender doesn’t actually say all that much. He lets his glove, equipment, agility and reflexes speak for themselves. Jonathan Quick is widely recognized as one of the top goaltenders in the NHL, and has been…
  • Hockey Honours Canada’s Fallen

    Peter Chau

    This week has been the most difficult time that Canada has ever faced. First came the shocking fatal ambush on two Canadian soldiers just south of Montreal on Monday, October 20, 2014. One of the soldiers, 53 year old Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent died of his injuries. The man who ran over the soldiers with his vehicle was later killed by police. In the early morning hours of Wednesday, October 22, 2014, Canada was shaken again. It began with the killing of an honour guard, 24 year old Corporal Nathan Cirillo of Hamilton, Ontario, at Ottawa’s War Memorial. Second, by the…

    As you venture through a hockey season, particularly early on, there are shifts and games you want to remember and those you’d rather forget. In the Sharks’ first tournament and few exhibition games of the young season, we had a our share of both. Before the first tourney puck drop, I stressed the importance of using this event and these initial games as learning opportunities. All the coaching staff was looking for was a full and honest effort; similar to what we had refreshingly seen in our other exhibition games leading up to the round robin event. We would work on some…

    The scoreline and result from Tuesday night’s game was very similar to the Leafs trip to New York earlier in the season, as they exploded with four goals in the second period, and held on for the win. However, in this game, Toronto were much more convincing in terms of even strength chances, as they dominated that second period to earn their comfortable lead.

    The 2014-15 NHL season is well underway and the Calgary Flames have already finished one of their longest road trips of the year. Opening their season at home on October 8th, the Flames lost to Vancouver by a score of 4-2. After the loss, I think a lot of people were worried about how the Flames record would look after the grueling road trip that was ahead of them. Not only was it a long trip to start the year but they had to face off against some of the best teams in the west. When you leave Edmonton out, the Flames were up against five teams that all had a record over .500 last year. Mason…

Edmonton is currently ranked T-15th in the NHL with 11 goals scored but have given up 24 goals which is the most goals allowed in the league thus far this season.
