Tyler Bunz Leads WHL in Goaltender Wins and Assists

It’s a dream come true for players to be drafted into the NHL, but as we all know simply being drafted does not guarantee any kind of professional career or success. Unless you are an early first round pick, you could be years away from getting any kind of a chance at a game in the big show. And so, players still continue to work, play and dream of the day when they can have their...

Tyler Bunz: 2nd For Wins in the WHL

For the Edmonton Oilers, goaltending continues to be an issue if not a major concern.

G31 Oilers at Coyotes

All kinds of indications the Oilers are getting healthy in some important places, and coach Renney's lines appear to make sense. This should be regarded as news. Apparently Hall and Corey Power Potterplay are back and Khabibulin's extended rest has him good to go as well.

Last year, Roy played the opening game for Team Canada and two other important preliminary games but struggled with consistency.
