Video: Nathan MacKinnon loses an edge and crashes violently into the boards

Nathan MacKinnon and Jacob Markstrom are lucky to have avoided a serious injury after MacKinnon lost an edge and crashed awkwardly into the boards. MacKinnon lost his edge between the circles and slid just wide, narrowly avoiding a huge collision with Markstrom who was playing the puck just outside of his crease. That could have ended really, really badly. Markstrom appeared to...

Watch: Insane 3v3 OT ends with beauty goal from MacKinnon at World Cup

Three-on-three overtime at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey continues to be the gift that keeps on giving. In an exhilarating game between the highly skilled North American squad and consistently impressive Team Sweden on Wednesday, a tie after 60 minutes of regulation meant we’d get more bat**** insane three-on-three overtime. This particular overtime was extra wild. With just...

Flames’ Sean Monahan just got paid, but is he a top center?

Having a top-line center in this league isn’t just important. It’s a necessity. When you are a strong team down the middle, it makes for an easy time building out the rest of the roster. Hitting on your picks and making sure that you develop your own talent are critical, and the Flames have been rebuilding and following that plan nicely. Is the recent big investment in Sean...

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...

Colorado Avalanche: Overcome the Wild

It only took until the final meeting of the season, but it finally happened: the Colorado Avalanche were able to hand the Minnesota Wild a loss. After a very intense playoff series last April that went into overtime in Game Seven, the Avalanche were finally able to get over the hump of not only scoring against the Wild, but also handing them just their third regulation loss since...

Colorado Avalanche: Semyon Varlamov returns

One of the keys to success this season for the Colorado Avalanche was the continued phenomenal play of their MVP from a season ago, Semyon Varlamov. After the game tonight, the Colorado Avalanche will have played exactly half of their games. At the beginning of the season, it was expected that Semyon Varlamov would play about 60 of the team’s 82 games. With that in mind, that would...

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...
