Non-Olympic NHL Players Catch Shark, Re-Enact Scene From Titanic Over Break

With many hockey fans casting their attention to the Olympic contests over the extent of the 2014 Winter Games, NHL players who weren’t selected to represent their respective countries took the time off to relax in a number of different ways — some more bizarre than others. Four members of the San Jose Sharks took to the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean to catch a real life example...

Dave Rook – From the British Hockey League to the NHL by   Rob McGregor

For many fans of the British game, any link to the top is a cause to celebrate. Whether it was the arrival of Theo Fleury in Belfast or David Ling in Nottingham, or Owen Nolan’s birth in Belfast; every thread that links the British game to the NHL is talked about. Some players, like Fleury, former Bracknell stopper and current [...]

Tomas Hertl Scores 4 Goals, Sharks Beat Rangers 9-2

Tomas Hertl is off to quite the start of the season, as well as the quite the start to his own career. The Sharks are just three games into the season, and already the 19-year old Hertl has recorded a two-goal game and last night a FOUR-goal game. Just to put that last part into perspective, Hertl is the youngest player since Jimmy Carson of the Los Angeles Kings back on March 30...

Owen Nolan Was Drafted No. 1 Overall in Jaromir Jagr’s 1990 Draft Class

Jaromir Jagr wasn’t the first player taken in the 1990 draft. In fact, he wasn’t the second, third or fourth player picked. Jagr lasted until pick No. 5 those 23 years ago, behind Owen Nolan, Petr Nedved, Keith Primeau and Mike Ricci. Nolan was the No. 1 overall pick that year, selected by the Quebec Nordiques. He would go on to play 18 seasons in the NHL, spending time with...

Vancouver Canucks to offer a tryout to….Cam Barker??

In Gillis we trust? It didn’t take long to get back into mid-season hockey debating. Not long after the new CBA deal was announced, news broke that the Canucks were interested in giving much-maligned defenceman Cam Barker a tryout at camp. It’s, to say the least, perplexing. Gillis has a long history of these tryouts (Owen Nolan, Manny Legace, Steve Begin etc) as a small loophole...

All-Star Game or Black Hole?

This subject will likely be shot down by most, but regardless, I don?t believe the All-Star Game is relevant enough to perpetuate its existence. I have no memory of an NHL All-Star Game since 1997 when Owen Nolan called his shot on a breakaway against Dominik Hasek?to make the game 11-7. The excitement of the game can be captured by reading the box score as you check to see who won...

It’s In the Cards: Mario Gosselin

Every Week I'll be scavenging through my basement and pulling out an old hockey card from a box and writing about that card and that player. This week I purposely went to box that is filled with 87-88 O-Pee-Chee cards. The 87-88 O-Pee-Chee set was what first got me seriously into collecting. Up until this point I had only a shoebox filled with my cousins old cards they gave...
