A Glam Slam:
The NHL is not at the forefront of the fashion conversation as often as other leagues. Toronto Maple Leafs left winger, Joffrey Lupul, is hoping to shift the sartorial spotlight to his sport. This hockey season, Lupul partnered with luxury men’s clothing store, Gotstyle, and the two have collaborated to create “Lupul Style.” The fashion-focused initiative includes an interactive forum called “GAME DAY,” which allows fans to choose Lupul’s wardrobe off-the-ice.
Before every Leafs home game, Gotstyle will outfit Lupul in its apparel and accessory offerings. Fans can visit lupulstyle.com to weigh in on their favorite look, using a “1 to 4 pucks” rating system. For each vote cast, Gotstyle and Lupe’s Troops will make a donation to the True Patriot Love Foundation in support of military families across Canada.
“The goal is to bring more style to hockey,” says Melissa Austria, founder of Gotstyle. “No matter what level of hockey you are playing in, – from peewee to professional – on game day, you are expected to look your best in and represent your team in a beautiful suit. We are so happy to work with such a talented athlete, ambassador and friend. We loved the idea of driving awareness to Lupe’s Troopes and immediately knew that this would be a wonderful initiative.”
Gotstyle also features a style-centric interview and corresponding fashion shoot with Lupul on the company’s website as well. To read the full piece, visit here. To shop Lupul’s featured looks, visit here.

LUPUL: ‘IT WAS ME’
Edmonton will be glad to know that the break-up with Joffrey Lupul six years ago wasn’t your fault.
As he puts it: It’s not you it’s me.
Lupul was a disaster when he made his Edmonton homecoming in the ill-fated Chris Pronger trade. He couldn’t turn a wheel offensively (28 points in 81 games after 53 in 81 the year before in Anaheim) and seemed to...

Jonathan Bernier is the Toronto Maple Leafs number one goalie; just don’t ask Coach Randy Carlyle about it.
On Saturday, the Leafs goalie is expected to start for a third straight time, when the Leafs host the Edmonton Oilers. If he does get the start, it would be the first time Bernier has done that in his career.
Mike Fisher delivered a hit to Cody Franson that left the Maple Leafs defenseman with a cut on his nose.
Fortunately that was all Franson had after a hit from Fisher on Friday night.
Fisher was given five minutes for boarding and a game misconduct for the hit but after the game called it a hockey play.

Cody Franson on being traded from Nashville to Toronto in July of 2011: “I definitely didn’t expect it.”
Jonathan Bernier is making a strong case to be the top goaltender for the Toronto Maple Leafs. In his first four appearances with his new team, Bernier stopped 113 of the 116 shots he faced. Given the start against the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night, Bernier allowed five goals but he made one spectacular save that helped the Maple Leafs secure a big 6-5 victory.
The Nashville Predators hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs for just the fifth time in their history on Thursday. They also hosted goaltender Jonathan Bernier for the fourth time and, for the fourth time, he beat them.
