Clayton Stoner, deep in preparation for the start of NHL action next month, has something else on his plate.
British Columbia’s Coastal First Nations (CFN) group is not pleased with the 28-year-old Minnesota Wild defenceman’s actions on its land last spring after Stoner allegedly gunned down a five-year-old grizzly bear named Cheeky.
The B.C. native is pictured with the bear’s severed head and paws on the Vancouver Sun‘s website.
Cheeky was ”skinned and left to rot” and “his head and paws were carried out past a sign declaring trophy hunting closed in the Great Bear Rainforest,” the CFN later claimed.

Last night a solid source informed me that If Thomas Vanek is moved prior to the Trade Deadline, his destination of choice would be Minnesota Wild. Fitting since he played for the Gophers in 2004, Vanek has had his off-season home in Minneapolis and trains in Edina, Minnesota. His wife is from Minnesota and he has always wanted to play in Minny, especially having good friend Jason...

Minnesota Wild: If he hits UFA status, should the Wild try to acquire Phil Kessel? Oh I don't know he's probably one of the world's premier goalscoring right wings so I guess they probably shouldn't because who likes guys who can score goals not me and definitely not Toronto and definitely...
