Nathan MacKinnon and the Sophomore Slump

The fabled “sophomore slump” is one of those media-driven narratives I mentioned in this post. It’s a storyline people believe instinctively, based on small sample sized anecdotal evidence. “Nathan MacKinnon regressed in his second year,” people say, “so ALL second year players probably struggle.” The reasons cited for the slump are many: increased expectations, more...

NHL star beats Olympic speed skater in race

Nathan MacKinnon is one of the best young players in the NHL. He’s also one of the fastest. The Colorado Avalanche forward won the Calder Trophy for the league’s best rookie in 2013-14, so his skills with a hockey stick are well-documented. If you didn’t know just how fast the 19-year-old is, though, hockey equipment manufacturer CCM would like to enlighten you. CCM equipped...

Patrick Roy calls David Backes 'gutless' for incident

The St. Louis Blues were dominated by the Colorado Avalanche 4-0 on Saturday afternoon, and their frustration was evident throughout the third period. Blues center David Backes took a perfectly clean hit by Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon and proceeded to go after the 18-year-old forward and bring him down to the ice.

Nathan MacKinnon becomes 10th 18-year-old to hit 60 points

Nathan MacKinnon needed just two points in his final six games to hit a historic mark for 18-year-olds in the NHL. On Saturday afternoon he reached the 60-point mark in grand fashion. He scored this goal to become just the 10th 18-year-old to record at least 60 points in a season in NHL history: Look at this rare air that MacKinnon is in: Jeff Skinner was the last to accomplish...

Colorado Avalanche: Nathan MacKinnon is rolling

Prized rookie starting to find the twine One year ago it was Seth Jones who was the presumed first pick in the NHL Entry Draft, not Nathan MacKinnon. The Avalanche took MacKinnon and Jones slid to the Nashville Predators at the fourth slot. While Jones has shown promise in his rookie campaign, Avalanche brass Joe Sakic and Patrick Roy surely doesn’t regret their decision to snag...
