    19 Sep 2014 | 5:43 am
    Darcy Kuemper tried to play the KHL card in his RFA negotiations with the Minnesota Wild, but all he needed was an unfortunate incident to open the door for his return.  On Wednesday, the Wild announced that goaltender Josh Harding would be out "indefinitely" (read: months) with a fractured foot after an off-ice incident. According to Mike Russo of the Star Tribune, the incident was with a teammate, which afterward Harding kicked a wall, causing the injury. Down to only Niklas Backstrom in goal, general manager Chuck Fletcher reached out to Ilya Bryzgalov, bringing him back on a tryout…

    When PyeongChang, South Korea hosts the 2018 Winter Olympics, their men's and women's hockey team will be able to ice teams in their respective hockey tournaments after the IIHF granted the country automatic entries. Last April, the IIHF expressed to the Korea Ice Hockey Association their desire to see the country make "progress in performance." That progress, at least on the men's side, meant seeing the team rise to 18th in the IIHF world rankings, a tall task after recently being relegated to Group B in the Division I World Championships.

  • Blue Jackets forward Nathan Horton injured again, again

    18 Sep 2014 | 2:25 pm
    At this point in his tenure with Columbus, Nathan Horton has been paid $289,474 per point. He’s played 36 games – missing the start of his first season with the team after offseason shoulder surgery, and then basically missing the rest of the season after suffering an abdominal tear in March.  The Blue Jackets were obviously excited to have a healthy Horton to start this season. Instead, they not only don’t have a healthy Horton, they won’t have Horton at all. According to Puck-Rakers, Horton has a back injury that will force him out of training camp and potentially the first part of…

His status for the 2014-15 NHL season had yet to be determined.  On Thursday, the Flyers offered some clarity: Timomen will be out “months,” through the new year, but hasn’t ruled out a return to the ice this season. “My desire is I want to play. But the chances of me playing are really slim. That’s a fact. But I’m ready and waiting to see,” said Timonen. “There’s a little chance there’s a safe way for me to step…

  • Dishing Hockey and Donuts with Award-Winning Author Roland Merullo

    Jim Dwyer
    24 Aug 2014 | 9:38 am
    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

    Jim Dwyer
    10 Aug 2014 | 4:55 am
    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. I want to alleviate the pain incurred from surgery to fix what medical professionals refer to as athletic pubalgia and/or a sports hernia.

Zolak, a world renowned linguist, professional Scrabble player and co-host of the Gresh & Zo show on Boston’s 98.5 Sports Hub, defended his stance by deploying the oldest trick in the linguists’ playbook: referencing Greek mythology and the Boston Bruins. Zolak was bewildered that his comments sparked more reaction from listeners more concerned about the alphabet than chatter about the Bruins trade deadline (today). Bruins President Cam Neely was…

    from Joe Haggerty of CSNNE, Krug finished a spectacular rookie season with 14 goals and 40 points, and shocked the kind of charge into the B’s power play that would make a defibrillator jealous. He also finished fourth in the Calder Trophy voting, and then watched two of the award finalists (Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat) get locked up with three year, $10 million contracts as RFA’s. It’s natural that Krug thought a healthy payday was coming to him, and Boston’s offer of one year and $1.25 million – the exact same deal given to Matt Bartkowski – seemed like a…

The move comes a day after veteran Ilya Bryzgalov agreed to a tryout and hours after General Manager Chuck…

Under the ownership of the Kroenke family, led by Stan and son Josh, the Avs' cap-averaged payroll entering Wednesday was $67,279,762 — up about $15 million from the highest it got last season. What might surprise fans is that the Kroenkes agreed to substantially increase payroll despite the Avs being in the bottom five of the NHL in ticket revenues last season, at about $26 million. The…

  • Mike Ribeiro and James Neal excited to play together again

    Two of the newest Predators have played on the same team before, but haven't played together as much as you might think. Since Mike Ribeiro signed with the Predators in July, much of the media talk has been about how he'll get to reunite with James Neal, and the two will try to rekindle some of the chemistry they might have had in Dallas. The problem with that logic, is from 2008 (Neal's rookie year) to 2011 (the year he was traded to Pittsburgh) the two only played about 373 5v5 minutes together. Total. About 124 minutes a year. To put that in perspective, Filip Forsberg played 122 5v5…

  • Eric Nystrom Season Preview: Fourth Line Livin'

    Jonathan Garcia
    18 Sep 2014 | 9:30 am
    While he may not see last year's success, Nystrom should prove to be a quality fourth line player for the Preds. Eric Nystrom was tailor made for the Barry Trotz system. He's the definition of a tough-as-nails, gritty player that battles for the puck and concentrates on the little things. He excelled in Nashville last year, tying his career high of 21 points, while skating just under 15 minutes a night. That was still on the lower end among forwards, but about on par with Colin Wilson, and more than Gabriel Bourque and Viktor Stalberg. The changing of the guard may have some impact on where…

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.
  • Spring Cleaning For Winter?

    Hey everyone! The kids are out of school and summer is here, which means it’s time to grab a beer, sit by the pool, and stare out at your rink site to figure out how you can make it even better next year. Fortunately, our buddy Mike over at Iron Sleek is sharing with us some ideas you might want to think about as you prep for the upcoming season. Lots of great ideas here. Be sure to check out the Iron Sleek site too, as they have added lots of new products (several of which we’ll share with you soon)! -Joe Hey Rinkers! Although summer is here and flowers are blooming, it’s not…
  • 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…
  • Enter the realtor.com Faceoff, Win a Trip to San Jose to Watch the Sharks!

    I’m no Dionne Warwick, but I know the way to San Jose: it’s through a new partnership we’ve formed with the folks from realtor.com. A few weeks back, they reached out to us to help promote a contest they’re hosting alongside the San Jose Sharks. The premise is simple and the prize is pretty darn incredible, valued at north of $2500. Let’s start with that: Tickets to see the San Jose Sharks in person vs the Capitals on 3/22/2014 Airfare to San Jose Two nights accommodations A trip to the practice facility A behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium Locker room access…
  • Do I Need Backyard Rink Insurance?

    Joe Proulx
    17 Feb 2014 | 7:40 am
    Like peanut butter and jelly.It’s a question that pops up now and again, sometimes on the forums, other times in person with rinkbuilding friends or potential EBR customers. “What happens if someone gets badly hurt? What if the liner rips and I flood my neighbor’s finished basement? What if my kid rips a shot through the picture window and right into my prized Picasso?” All valid questions, and until now, questions I never really had a good answer to. I’d tell them that I had never heard of someone suing over a rink injury, and that for the most part, I…

  • 4 Bold Predictions for the NY Rangers in 2014-15

    Kevin Mizera
    18 Sep 2014 | 7:21 pm
    The month of September is a difficult time for New York Rangers fans, and hockey fans in general.  After an initial flurry starting July 1, there’s now little free agent activity to speak of. Training camps are finally beginning, so there is some hope there. With so little hard news happening at the moment, though, we’re going to take a different approach. We’re going to make predictions for the upcoming season–not just any old predictions, mind you, but bona fide bold predictions. We could sit here and predict that the Rangers will make the playoffs, but <yawn>…
  • Ford Ice Impressions – Florida Panthers

    Hannah Stuart
    18 Sep 2014 | 6:55 pm
    The Florida Panthers’ rookies were a feisty bunch Sunday, and in a good way. Everywhere I looked, someone was getting in a Nashville player’s face or space.  And it wasn’t always who you’d expect – more than once I saw Rocco Grimaldi, who’s definitely not the tallest guy on the ice, trying to start something with one of the Predators rookies. #159001061 / gettyimages.com  Most NHL Ready: Vince Trocheck/Aaron Ekblad I couldn’t decide. I know this is a total cop-out and I’ll own it, but I think both these guys could be assets to the Panthers this…
  • Have We Seen the Last of Kimmo Timonen?

    Andy Dudones
    18 Sep 2014 | 6:28 pm
    With optimism yielding to realistic logic, all signs are indicating that we have seen the last of Kimmo Timonen in the NHL. After the 15-year veteran was indefinitely sidelined due to blood clotting back in August, the Flyers planned accordingly as if his career was, in fact, finished. But despite his progress throughout the brief amount of time that has elapsed since his original diagnosis, the factors keeping him from jumping back into action are likely enough to end his prominent career. After 14 seasons in the NHL, is it likely that we’ve seen the last of Kimmo TImonen? (Adam…
  • Why the Sharks Shouldn’t Name a Captain

    Andrew Bensch
    18 Sep 2014 | 6:25 pm
    During his team’s tumultuous offseason, San Jose Sharks head coach Todd McLellan has suggested numerous times that there would still be a leadership group with or without anointed captains. Furthermore, in a recent column from the Mercury News’ David Pollak, Thornton is quoted as saying the Sharks will need 23 captains. Obviously Thornton is stating that everyone on the roster will need to be a leader. Somewhat cliche, but at the same time noteworthy, in regards to how the Sharks go about naming captains. “Other Crap” Now, in one of Pollak’s recent blog posts,…
  • Josh Harding and the Goaltending Woes of the Minnesota Wild

    Anthony Bloch
    18 Sep 2014 | 6:00 pm
    Josh Harding has been a warrior for the Minnesota Wild, and when healthy he and Niklas Backstrom are one of the best goalie tandems in the NHL. (Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE) When I heard a couple days ago that Minnesota wild goaltender Josh Harding had injured his foot, my first thought was about the bad luck that the Wild have had with their goaltenders and their injuries. I was driving in my car on my commute home from St. Paul Minnesota to the Minneapolis suburbs when Minnesota Star Tribune writer Mike Russo was on KFAN 103.3 FM’s Dan Barreiro show. Mike dropped the bombshell that…

  • Encouraging Start To A New Hockey Season

    JRiddall
    9 Sep 2014 | 6:02 pm
    We’re just a few practices into a new season of girls midget hockey and my initial trepidation at having to work with a group of relatively unknown players has surprisingly turned to cautious optimism. My concern at having a young team with half of the players in their rookie midget year has been replaced by enthusiasm driven by their enthusiasm. Last year I was lucky to have two girls ready to go on the ice when the Zamboni was done making its rounds, while so far the entire squad has been standing by expectantly as the big doors close signalling their permission to begin their skate.

    Leaning on my vast experience and sage wisdom as a now relatively elder hockey dad, I am digging deep again to give back to the game by laying down some ground rules for would-be hockey dads and moms out there. This guide (as a follow on to my previous rants “So You Wanna Sign Your Kid Up for Hockey, Eh?” and “New Hockey Parent Do’s and Don’ts“) is intended to not-so-subtlely inform and suggest ways to prevent yourself from becoming “That Hockey Parent.” With all the negative hockey parent news bouncing around of late, one would think it…

    After having successful completed, that is to say survived, the Warrior Dash with Momma last year, I thought it would be a good idea and parent/child bonding opportunity to have another go at it with the Boy and the Devil. Can’t you just sense the Devil’s excitement? And so, just before Christmas, last year I signed the three of us up and turned the kids’ registrations into what the Devil quickly described as “the worst present she’d ever received.” Despite my cross country running passion and self-professed success as a young lad, this family is…

    Been a while since I jotted anything here, what with it being summer and all. The Devil’s fully recovered from her broken limb and methinks chomping at the bit to get back on the ice for her final minor hockey season. Yup, final…the end…nuttin’ left for this ole hockey dad to do, but reminisce. As Father’s Day falls tomorrow, I thought it may be appropriate to construct a little ditty for me and my fellow Dads. For those who wish to sing along, this has been roughly written to the tune of Mrs. Robinson (I know not why, but it was the first ballad to pop into my…

    Winnipeg Whiteout

  • Let’s get ready to Crumble or Just Stumble

    Matt Fayle
    30 Aug 2014 | 8:54 am
    The Jets season is fast approaching. The Jets struggles continued well into the off season. The management once again failed to address issues that repeatedly plague this hockey team. The core includes Ladd, Bogo, Buff, Kane, Wheeler, and Little. The Jets have put a lot of faith into these 6 players, as many of them are locked up long term with a substantial price tag attached. However when looking at the core you quickly notice the lack of D-men included as well as the huge omission of a goalie. If you were to take a look and breakdown the core of most teams in the NHL you would come to…
  • 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

    Charles Dart
    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…

    Any hockey fan has been eagerly awaiting the release of the 2014-15 schedule. I remember all the excitement of the first season the Winnipeg Jets schedule was released. It was full of some great games to anticipate. And now the excitement can start to increase again as the Jets have released their 2014 preseason schedule consisting of seven games – four of which are at home in the MTS Centre. The Winnipeg Jets start and finish preseason play at the Hangar with a chance to impress the local fans. What’s additionally interesting are the teams they will play. Date Opponent Arena Time…

    18 Sep 2014 | 1:52 pm
    He didn’t call anyone’s mother this time for a health report, but it’s bound to generate nearly as much noise just as training camp starts today: Dave Feschuk reported on Steve Spott’s talk at a coaching clinic and got some scuttlebutt via unnamed coaches in attendance. The main subject was Phil Kessel, who it should be noted Feschuk has disparaged in the past (doesn’t mean this latest report is 100% untrue, it’s just history worth remembering).
