It can be a gamble, but NHL General Managers don't like to look at it that way.
When an underage NHL player is cleared to play for Canada in the World Junior Championships, his parent club expects a deep tournament run that culminates in a treasured opportunity to represent one's country. The experience gained from skating in a competition that features the best teenage...
Just as their road losing streak was about to stretch to a full two months, the Ducks pulled off something illogical to finally walk out of a visiting arena with their heads held high.
Goals by Luca Sbisa, Bobby Ryan and Andrew Cogliano allowed the Ducks to stay one step ahead of San Jose all night as they continued their mastery of the Sharks this season with their third win in...
THE WAY TO SAN JOSE
Are toddlers and young children inherently smarter these days or are we just doing a better job of capturing their flashes of brilliance on camera? On the surface, it looks like kids are taking up a huge interest in their parents’ favorite sports teams. That isn’t a new phenomenon, but their knowledge of said sports teams is. What baffles me is how a 3-year-old’s memory could...
Many, many things have been thrown onto the ice during hockey games. Hats, catfish, octopi, even the occasional waffle. But one San Jose Sharks fan took things to the next level by throwing a dead duck onto the ice when the Anaheim Ducks visited the HP Pavilion. According to CSNBayArea.com, one fan threw an actual duck onto the ice, ostensibly in an attempt to rile up the crowd and...
from Elliotte Friedman of CBC, • Is George McPhee ready to shake up his roster? Couple other teams say the Capitals are a club to watch.
• Big win Monday night for Bruce Boudreau. Wonder though, if, with 20-20 hindsight, Boudreau would re-think his decision to return so quickly. Anaheim’s a much bigger rebuild job than any of us realized. You can see the frustration on the...
Orange county is a lonely place to be for the local hockey fan. At 14 points out of a playoff spot, and second to last in the Western Conference, the Anaheim Duck's only real competition for last place is coming from the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Knowing Anaheim's tendency over the past few years of playing far better in the second half of the season then the first, you might...
This is wrong on so many levels. The Anaheim Ducks played the San Jose Sharks on Monday night but the Ducks win was not the only notable thing that occurred.
“There’s a stoppage in play as someone threw an apparent dead duck on the HP ice. Now that’s fowl. Fans like it,” tweeted Eric Stephens, Orange County Register.

On the adorability scale, this 3-year-old San Jose Sharks fan ranks somewhere between Joey Junior Blackhawks Reporter and that little Penguins fan that freaked out when his parents revealed themselves as loyal to the Red Wings. Here is hockey parenting at its finest:
You nearly had us at "Patwick MAHLEAU!" You definitely had us at "Marc-Edwah VLASIC!"
But team seems content to stand pat with its trio

Dale Hunter's regime is just more than one month old, with Wednesday marking the anniversary of his taking over as Washington Capitals coach. It was the shake-up that general manager George McPhee thought was needed, firing Bruce Boudreau in the hopes that a new voice would turn around the season. ...
Should be a fun one.
We're gonna see the Sharks a lot more starting next year when the conferences re-align so get ready to get your hate on.
Ryane Clowe and Douglas Murray already hate the Canucks.
No Higgins for Vancouver, so Mark Mancari is back on the team.
Hodgson will centre Ebbett and Weise while Lapierre will centre Malhotra and Mancari.
Go Canucks Go.
