Andrew Desjardins eats cereal out of Stanley Cup

What would you do if you could spend a day with the Stanley Cup? If you’re Andrew Desjardins, you start the day by eating a huge amount of Lucky Charms out of the Cup.

WATCH: Connor McDavid turns heads in Oilers scrimmage

Connor McDavid tantalized Oilers fans with a scented whiff of what’s to come in October as he scored five of eight goals in an 8-6 victory for the White team over the Blue team. Sure, it was a scrimmage that featured 4-on-4 and 3-on-3 competition, but if this is what we can expect going forward, it’s going to be a lot of fun in Edmonton this season. The fans are already buying...

Arizona Coyotes GM tells free agents the honest truth about uncertain future

Things for the Arizona Coyotes are a bit murky. The team has battled the city of Glendale and the future of the franchise is unclear. You’d think that would be a detractor for potential free agents, but the club has managed to convince Zbynek Michalek, Steve Downie, Brad Richardson, Antoine Vermette and Anders Lindback to join the club. While none of those players are marquee...

Report: Alexander Semin would accept a one-year deal, isn’t interested in the KHL

Alexander Semin is a forward without a team after the Carolina Hurricanes bought out the remainder of his contract. The move will be one which lingers with the Hurricanes for quite some time as they’ll carry a cap hit of just over $2.3 million through 2020-21, but Semin’s future is far more uncertain. Some reports indicated “several” teams are interested in his services...

Video: Kevin Roy scores between his legs during prospect camp

Kevin Roy of the Anaheim Ducks scored an incredible goal during the team’s prospect camp. Roy received the puck near the goal and nimbly shifted the puck between his legs and fired it over the goaltender. Amazing skill from the 22-year-old. The post Video: Kevin Roy scores between his legs during prospect camp appeared first on Puck Drunk Love.

Video: Oilers’ prospects compete in a cooking competition

Adjusting to life as a professional hockey player can be challenging, so the Edmonton Oilers devised a prospect camp which not only covers on-ice topics but also teaches young prospects about nutrition and a proper diet. The prospects were split into teams and were challenged to go shopping, stay within their budget and create a couple dishes while demonstrating their culinary...

The last time we saw Andrei Kostitsyn, he was suspended for two games by the Nashville Predators during the 2012 postseason for missing curfew along with teammate Alexander Radulov. Shortly after the Predators were eliminated, both Kostitsyn and Radulov left the NHL and returned to Russia. Now, Kostitsyn is ready to return to the NHL and he’s not picky about where he plays...

America’s hero goes to Washington: T.J. Oshie is a Capital

It would make sense that the hockey player who was the symbol of American patriotism at the last Winter Olympics will now make his living in the nation’s capital. T.J. Oshie was traded to the Washington Capitals today in exchange for Troy Brouwer, minor league goalie Pheonix Copley, and a 2016 third round pick. Oshie is a fairly consistent 20-goal a year scorer with a .25 goals...

Marc Savard getting traded in 2015 is ridiculous

Funny … After I went on about how the Boston Bruins were driving their fans insane, they actually had a pretty good week. They traded Martin Jones, who they got in the Milan Lucic deal, for a 2016 first round pick and a prospect. And on Wednesday, they made a seemingly innocuous trade when then sent Reilly Smith to Florida in exchange for Jimmy Hayes. It’s a fairly even trade...

2015 NHL Draft had dismal TV ratings

Did you watch the 2015 NHL Draft? The answer to that question is probably “no” based on the ratings which have been released from the event’s first round. A total of 252,000 viewers turned on NBCSN to watch coverage of the draft’s first round. That number represents a 25% drop from last year’s 337,000 viewers and the lowest total since 2012’s draft brought in 207,000...

The Toronto Maple Leafs trade Phil Kessel to the Pittsburgh Penguins

The Toronto Maple Leafs have traded star winger Phil Kessel to the Pittsburgh Penguins in a package which includes prospect Kasperi Kapanen, defensemen Scott Harrington and a draft pick per Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos. The return for the star forward is a tad underwhelming. The big piece is obviously Kasperi Kapanen, an 18-year-old forward and son of Sami. He scored 11 goals with...

Sharks have found their starting goalie by acquiring Jones

Don Sweeney has been justifiably getting killed online for the early returns of his first draft. He sold low on Dougie Hamilton and brought in prospects that were way off the board in the first round. He also locked up Adam McQuaid to a four-year deal and traded another solid asset in a third-round pick for Zac Rinaldo. All-in-all a tough week for the rookie GM. Well, Sweeney...

The Flames bolstered their defense for the present and the future on draft day

To say the Calgary Flames had a good weekend, would be a huge understatement. First, the Flames pulled off a surprise move, acquiring defenseman Dougie Hamilton from the Boston Bruins. While Hamilton’s name was being floated around in trade rumors, it seemed improbable the club was actually going to move their best young defenseman. But, this is the Bruins after all, and with...
