NHL players 'interview' teammates with objects that aren't mics

There’s a strange (yet hilarious) prank trend starting in the NHL this season, and it has players around the league joining a mob of reporters and interviewing teammates with things other than a microphones. For example, pictured above is Evander Kane of the Winnipeg Jets interviewing his teammate Chris Thorburn with a Gatorade bottle last night. Just a few days before that,...

Jokinen pots two goals to lead Jets to 5-2 win over Rangers

How The Skate Turns is a long way from network TV or any reality channel but it aptly describes the daily drama for the Winnipeg Jets in their last two games. Friday, with an odd morning start in Philadelphia, Jets right-winger Blake Wheeler’s skate was angled just the right way for the Flyers to get off to a, well, flying start in the first minute and the Jets never sufficiently...

Hockey Fights of the Week: 3/11 - 3/17

It's always fun when two teams face each other multiple times in the same week. Typically, tempers and emotions run high and gloves hit the ice. This was the case when Toronto and Winnipeg met twice last week, skating on March 12th and March 16th. Round one saw Colton Orr upset Chris Thorburn when he continued to throw punches even after he was out of his sweater. The second...

Colton Orr destroys Chris Thorburn in heavyweight fight

After Colton Orr (6’3″ 222 lbs) and Chris Thorburn (6’3″ 210 lbs) mixed it up during the Toronto Maple Leafs-Winnipeg Jets game on March 12th, they went for round 2 on Saturday night.  Unfortunately for Thorburn, like round 1, Colton Orr tuned him up.  The best punch was thrown at about the 36 second mark by Orr.  He worked his arm inside and Thorburn could do nothing...

Chris Thorburn Not Happy With Colton Orr

from Gary Lawless of the Winnipeg Free Press, Thorburn, however, is beloved in the Jets dressing room for his willingness to stand up for teammates. So when Orr slighted him near the end of what until then had been an honourable exchange, the rest of the Jets took notice. With less than three minutes expired in the game, the two big men engaged. Orr's jersey came...

Epic heavyweight tilt between Colton Orr and Chris Thorburn

Early in the first period of the Toronto Maple Leafs-Winnipeg Jets game on Tuesday night, Colton Orr and Chris Thorburn got into it.  This was a true heavyweight tilt with Orr weighing in at 6’3″ 222 lbs and Thorburn checking in at 6’3″ 230 lbs.  Thorburn did a good job of keeping Orr at bay early, but once Orr was able to wriggle his arm free by getting his sleeve off...

Bruins Overcome Adversity Against Jets With Win That Showcases Team’s Resolve

BOSTON –- The Bruins had plenty of chances to pack it in on Monday afternoon at the Garden against Winnipeg, and had they been a lesser team, they may have done just that. The B’s were tested in numerous ways, but still found just enough to escape with a 2-1 shootout win, now having racked up a maximum four points in the season’s first two games.
