MATT COOKE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Wild's Dumba asks permission from Len Boogaard for number change

Minnesota Wild defenseman Matt Dumba elected to change his jersey number, but not without first making a phone call.Dumba asked permission from Len Boogaard if he was accepting of the 21-year-old changing his number from 55 to 24, which was the jersey worn by Boogaard's late son Derek. The younger Boogaard played with Minnesota from 2005-2010 before passing away the following year...

Matt Cooke cross-checks Shea Weber in the face

Old Matt Cooke appeared on Saturday night when he cross-checked Shea Weber in the face after exchanging words with the defenseman. The two men went to cross-check each other, but Cooke’s stick elevated and caught Weber directly in the face. Ouch. Weber wasn’t too happy and instantly dropped the mitts. All Cooke could do was shy away from the barrage of punches. You really can’t...

Adrian Dater: Matt Cooke is a gutless puke

#485395217 / gettyimages.comHere’s a new drinking game, every time Adrian Dater of the Denver Post mentions Matt Cooke’s name, drink. Yep, Matt Cooke did a bad thing; he blew out an Av’s player’s knee with a dirty leg check. This is fact. This is not up for debate. But I find it funny that a beat writer for a National Hockey League team would make him the focus of every...

Raffi Torres: Matt Cooke being treated like 'serial killer'

Over the last two seasons, we were told that Matt Cooke was a changed man, and that he had adjusted his style of play to get rid of the dirty hits that injured many players from 2004-11. That talk sounds silly following Cooke’s knee-to-knee hit on Colorado Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie during the Minnesota Wild’s 1-0 overtime win Monday night. The hit was dirty, and...

The Case for Matt Cooke Intentionally Hurting Eric Karlsson by @PandaPSU

We found out this time last week that Eugene Melnyk, after some 10 months, is still on the hunt to prove that Matt Cooke purposely attacked Erik Karlsson with his skate. While it seemed pretty clear it was an accident to the other 99% of the population, Melnyk has remained vigilant and reported his findings to the NHL last Monday. While I was not granted access to the meeting, I...

Minnesota Wild: The transformation of Matt Cooke

It seems as though every team in the NHL has at least one. The agitating forward that is a pest in every sense of the word. His job is less to put the puck in the back of the net and more to get under the skin of opposing players in an attempt to draw penalties. The Minnesota Wild is fortunate enough to have arguably the best one in the NHL. Matt Cooke hasn’t always been the player...
