Thousands of players from dozens of teams will take to the ice to raise money for cancer causes through July 3.

BUFFALO, NY — At Harborcenter, the signs are up and volunteers were sorting jerseys and taking care of last-minute preparations Thursday morning, before thousands of players hit the ice for the 11 Day Power Play Community Shift.

Organizers recently celebrated surpassing the $8 million mark since the event’s inception in 2017. The money benefits Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, Oishei Children’s Hospital, Make a Wish and at Camp Good Days.

Hearing about the return of the 11 Day Power Play, you might be wondering ‘didn’t they just come off the ice?’ You’re right. In November, forty players, including WGRZ’s Pete Gallivan, raised more than $2 million and set a Guinness World Record for the longest hockey game of all time, at 252 hours.

Co-founder Amy Lesakowski admits there was some concern about the short time frame of the world record game.

“We do community change every summer, and we had to quickly flip that event from last November and open it up to the community quickly,” she said. “It’s been a challenge, but as always, our players and volunteers never let us down. People are excited to be back here at Harborcenter this summer and we’re ready to go.”

Skating will begin Thursday morning at 9 a.m. The official opening ceremony is set for Thursday at 6:30 p.m., with November’s world-record “Frozen Forty” teams playing top fundraisers, then a rematch of the Blues against the Whites.

At 5-foot-8 and 159 pounds, he’s an extremely undersized defender, but has a ton of offensive upside and plays fearlessly. He still needs polishing in the defensive zone though.

Lane Hutson is a 2022 NHL Draft eligible prospect from Chicago, Illinois. At 5-foot-8 and 159 pounds, he’s an extremely undersized defender, but has a ton of offensive upside and plays fearlessly. He still needs polishing in the defensive zone though. Combined with his size, or lack thereof, he should be a late first-round or early second-round pick.

Hutson has spent the past two seasons with the United States National Team Development Program in Plymouth, Michigan. Previously, he played junior hockey for the North Jersey Avalanche 16U AAA team, serving as an alternate captain, scoring 10 goals and 28 assists for 38 points in just 19 AYHL games.

In his first season with the USNTDP, Hutson had seven goals and 26 assists between the USHL and USDP. He was brought up at the U18 club for 10 games, also adding one goal and seven assists there.

Last season he made significant progress in his game, leading all USDP defensemen with 63 points (10-53=63) and an incredible +59 in 60 games. In USHL play, Hutson added six goals and 26 assists for 32 points and a +27 there.

At the U18 World Juniors, Hutson earned tournament top defenseman honors, registering eight assists and a +12 in just six games. On Monday, he was also named the recipient of the 2022 EJ McGuire Achievement Award, given to nominees who “best exemplify the commitment to excellence through strength of character, competitiveness and athleticism.”

“Lane Hutson is a worthy recipient of the 2022 EJ McGuire Achievement Award after demonstrating all of the qualities recognized by this honor,” said Dan Marr, director of NHL Central Scouting. “Lane, whose season culminated in being named the best defender at the 2022 World Under-18 Championship, plays a dynamic game in which he consistently excels at using his speed, intelligence and skill. As a 5’8″ defender, any description of Lane has always referenced his height. One of his most appealing traits is his ability to use that height to his advantage and dispel any perceived limitations. His passion for the game has earned him the respect of teammates and opponents – a special player who will find his place in an NHL roster and be a positive influence on others along the way.

Corey Pronman’s analysis

Hutson is a constant threat with the puck on his stick. He’s the smartest player in the draft. He does so many sewing passes to generate chances. Hutson is also a highly skilled puck handler who shows great creativity off the offensive blue line. He does a lot of fakes and clever tricks to escape the pressure. He’s not the fastest skater, but his edge game is quite good and allows him to use his skating to attack. The offense is clearly NHL quality. Hutson wonders if a defenseman barely 5-foot-9 who isn’t an elite skater can defend in the NHL. He’s a competitive, quality defender against juniors and college opponents, but this will have to be a test he needs to clear the line. I think he plays in the NHL and projects himself into the top four offensive defensemen, but I realize the odds are against a player who looks like him. I dab him this high because he’s the smartest player in the draft and I see just enough for the rest of his game to be able to rise to higher levels.

Scott Wheeler’s analysis

He sees the ice as well as anyone in the draft, regularly identifying plays that are one step ahead of the opposition. He has an incredible talent for executing long plays from east to west, whether it’s making high feathers, leading saucer passes with perfect weight on the ice or throwing a difficult pass on the boards. of a teammate in sequence. He makes a ton of plays under pressure when other players freak out (although sometimes he can actually use a little haste for his game haha). Inside the offensive zone, although his shot lacks power, he acts like a fourth striker with his ability to slide off the line and create.

Smaht Scouting Analysis

Hutson has excellent mobility and that’s to the credit of his crossovers and his cutting edge work. He can generate open space for himself and shake off attackers with his mobility. Good outside edges when he doubled in the neutral zone as he had run into traffic in the neutral zone and looks to double to find an open teammate on the opposite side. Good inside edges to pivot out of pressure along the blue line. Hutson does a good job leaning on his edges as he turns his body to react to puck movement. Relying on his edges allows him to maintain speed and makes him much more likely to generate open ice for himself.

Final word on hockey analysis

Hutson marries his skating skills with exceptional puck handling. He can lead the race through the neutral zone, creating effective zone entries. He also creates an offense off the run with his ability to beat defenders wide and make plays. This forces defenders back and creates passing lanes. Hutson controls the puck extremely well in the zone. He is confident on the blue line and can speed up or slow down play to create offensive chances. His vision and passing abilities are excellent. When a teammate opens up, Hutson can perform a quick sideways move on a defender, combining that with a quick deke in order to open up a passing lane. A highly creative player, Hutson can drive the puck down tight passing lanes or drive the puck over an opponent’s stick.

The St Kilda site, once home to the St Moritz ice rink, is now home to a booming apartment complex of the same name, anchored by the recently opened Loti, restaurant and bar run by former Lume chef Elijah Holland .

Acronym for “lady of the ice cream”, Loti is a relatively intimate space with a central bar separating a more casual drinks and snacks area from an all-day dining area overlooking an open fire-fueled kitchen. By day there are views across the Esplanade to Port Phillip Bay; at night there is a feeling of refuge.

An extensive menu makes it easy to settle in for a feast or nibble and drop by, perhaps to the nearby Theater du Palais or Hotel Esplanade for a show.

Main courses include a cornetto of smoked yellowfin tuna mousse with salted and cured Spanish albacore tuna.

A version of the lamb cevapcici sausage is seasoned with mountain pepper; it is served with a fermented green peppercorn and saline relish.

The turbot ribs are pan-fried like a rack of lamb and the skin of the fish in a sea parsley crust. “It’s crispy and clean, seafood for the winter,” says the chef.

Holland is an avid hunter and gatherer and the menu features native ingredients as well as invasive animals such as venison and botanicals such as cardoon, an artichoke thistle.

“We went for food, diving and fishing with the team,” he says. “We try to get to know and understand our products as much as possible.”

There is also theater. The “skating rink” seafood ceviche will be presented with a sheet of smashable ice.

A tea tree flavored marshmallow dessert will be toasted at the table, reminiscent of childhood campfires on the beach.

“It’s simple and accessible, but done in a fun way,” says Holland. “We want it to be interesting but not intimidating.”

Owner Cam Northway has Rocker in Bondi but this is his first foray into Melbourne. “Our vision was to create a local neighborhood getaway, to experience and evoke memories of your favorite travels, right here in Melbourne.”

He is enthusiastic about the cocktail programme: classics made with native herbs and local spirits. An example is the Milton Spritz, made with mountain marigold, gin, dry vermouth and gentian bitters.

Sony Entertainment Pictures recently announced that the film that influenced many homages and a few pop culture science geeks, the 1985 comedy true geniuswill be released on 4K Ultra UHD Blu-ray.

The 4K ultra UHD disc of the 1985 sci-fi film is presented in high definition and includes the feature scanned from the original camera negative with Dolby Vision and presented in 4K resolution. The remastered film’s Blu-ray Disc also features a commentary from the film’s director Martha Colridge, a “Balloon Chair” deleted scene, raw editing, and other special features. 4K Ultra UHD sound includes 5.1 sound and new Dolby Atmos in addition to the original Dolby Stereo.

COLLIDER VIDEO OF THE DAY

true genius takes place on the fictional campus of Pacific Tech and tells the story of a group of crazy teenage geniuses who, when working together, can achieve just about anything. The storyline follows Professor Jerry Hathaway (William Atherton) from Pacific Technical University who is secretly recruited by the CIA to create the power source for “Crossbow”. Using his considerable influence, Hathaway recruits a brilliant team of students to work for him. The team includes Chris (Val Kilmer) who is a genius in his senior year, the mastermind of 16-year-old Mitch (Gabe Jarret), and America’s number one socially awkward mastermind, Lazlo (Jonathan Gries). Though supposedly hard at work on the lab project, the clumsy but inseparable trio still find time to throw amazing beach parties and convert the dorm into a skating rink. However, when the three geniuses discover that their teacher has them working on a secret weapon for the military, they plan an elaborate revenge plot and, as expected, comedy ensues.


RELATED: In ‘Stranger Things’ Season 4, Surviving Horror Is Complicated

This timeless classic is considered a hidden gem, combining subject matter and music that takes you back to the 80s. The movie certainly ticks all the boxes, great acting, awesome soundtrack, nostalgia (without squeaking teeth), humor and a strangely endearing touch of romance. The film is considered ahead of its time, as several notable actors were inspired by Kilmer’s Chris Knight character. The 1985 comedy was written by Neal Israel, Peter Torovkei, and pat proft. The film was produced by Brian Gazier and led by Martha Coolidge.

The classic true genius is set to be released on September 13 on 4K UHD Blu-ray.

The winner of the first major tournament held at the storied golf course that hosts this week’s US Open served up many solid lessons that still hold true today.

Her name: Geneviève Hecker.

Hecker’s victory in the US Women’s Amateur in 1902 made her the ideal person to write “Golf For Women”, the first instruction book written specifically for women. It’s a textbook that, in some ways, remains just as relevant in 2022 as it was when it was released.

Hecker’s second consecutive title in the country’s most prestigious women’s event came 11 years before Francis Ouimet put golf on the map in America by winning the US Open at the Country Club. Her win came seven decades before Title IX would forever change the landscape for women in sports in the United States.

It was Hecker, not Ouimet, who was the first national champion of any kind to be crowned at the Country Club. At the time, golf was a diversion from the main activities of the club, which included horse racing, polo and ice skating.

“When you have someone like Genevieve, who turns 18 and becomes a fairly accomplished player, she’s automatically become one of the best in the country and could compete with some of the best in the world,” Michael said. Trostel, a USGA historian.

Hecker’s book came out in 1904. Cost: $2. Magazine advertisements of the time touted the book as a must-read for the several thousand female golf enthusiasts across the country.

“No player, no matter how skillful, can fail to benefit from careful study of this one,” said a review in the New York Post.

Other reviewers also assured readers that the advice “will also be useful for men”.

Although other educational books have achieved greater acclaim – think Ben Hogan’s “Five Lessons” and Harvey Penick’s “Little Red Book” – none have quite the history or pioneering status of 217 pages of Hecker.

Very few people in the early 20th century had reason to believe that women’s golf had a large following – a reality Hecker acknowledged in her introduction.

She called her “so comparatively unimportant that no woman felt it incumbent on her to blaze the trail, so to speak, for her tottering but eager sisters”.

“Fortunately, that time is now over, and it’s gone never to return,” she concluded.

And yet, women’s golf still had a long way to go.

The first US Women’s Open wasn’t played until 1946. Professional women’s golf didn’t really begin until the mid-1940s, and the LPGA Tour wasn’t founded until 1950.

In the early 1900s, the women’s game was an amateur pursuit played by several dozen highly skilled players at clubs mostly scattered around the East Coast and Chicago.

It was a far cry from the golf-shorts-and-shirts-comfort feast it is today. Images and illustrations in “Golf For Women” show women demonstrating different parts of the golf swing while wearing ankle-length skirts with long-sleeved blouses buttoned up to the neck. Some wear a tie. (The men didn’t have it much better. They were still hanging out in breeches and ties.)

Some of Hecker’s lessons, however, could have been ripped from a 2022 golf magazine. The book is filled with timeless tips that remind us that, however difficult the game may be, some concepts are still alarmingly simple:

—On the well-known amateur penchant for not hitting enough of a club to reach the green or clear a hazard: “It is much easier to play a shot correctly that would easily cover distance than to play it with a club with which one must press.”

-By putting: “One of the truest and best-known axioms… ‘Never stand up, never in.'”

— On playing fast: “Anyone who has been subjected to the annoyance of waiting and waiting after every shot, while someone a few hundred yards in front of them suffers half a dozen insignificant swings, will approve , I think, most warmly all I said.”

Hecker’s success at the links, not to mention the fame she gained while writing the book, made her a household name in golf circles.

When she married renowned gambler Charles Stout in 1903, the New York Times wedding announcement included a headline that called the union “romance on ties.” Hecker took a break from competitive golf for nearly two decades while she had children. When, in 1925, she won a New York Women’s Metropolitan Golf event at Siwanoy Country Club at age 41, The Times called it “one of the most remarkable comebacks in golf history”.

The book’s potential audience, meanwhile, grew after Ouimet’s decisive victory at the Country Club in 1913. players over the next decade.

Nearly 120 years after the book’s release, approximately 25 million people play golf in America. About a quarter of that total are women, and the future is bright.

According to the National Golf Foundation, girls’ golf in the United States is growing at a faster rate than boys’. Girls made up only 17% of junior golfers in 1995. Last year, they made up one-third of junior golfers.

Almost anyone, woman or man, would struggle not to find at least a few useful snippets in “Golf For Women.” The book also included a few words that might come in handy for the 156 players trying to follow in his footsteps and become USGA champion at the Country Club this week.

“To be a successful tournament player, no matter how skilled,” she writes, “it’s essential to be able to seize the opportunity and ‘play better than you know how to,’ as the folks say. sports journals, when the occasion requires.

Riverhead Town will enter into negotiations with Peconic Hockey to install an NHL-sized rink at Stotzky Park.

City council members have agreed to have the city attorney begin negotiations with Peconic Hockey, with the goal of entering into a public-private partnership that will allow for the eventual construction of an NHL-sized indoor rink in the park.

The domed rink would be located on the Stotzky Park South Football Field, which Riverhead Parks and Recreation Superintendent Ray Coyne says is virtually unused.

The city had been talking with Peconic Hockey about building an ice rink at Veterans Memorial Park in Calverton, but, Coyne said, “there are too many hurdles there,” in terms of permits and regulations.

Initially, the Stotzky rink would be located inside a “bubble dome”, but eventually Peconic Hockey wants to build a permanent multi-rink structure in the park, the city’s main park facility, located along Pulaski Street in Riverhead.

Peconic Hockey has already purchased the rink’s “canvas”, dome and mechanical equipment from the town of Cranston, Rhode Island, said the organization’s founder and chairman of the board, Troy Albert. Since it will cost about $200,000 to move everything, the agency’s leaders only want to move the materials once and have asked the city council for permission to store everything on city land.

Peconic Hockey is an all-volunteer, tax-exempt, non-profit corporation. He organizes hockey teams in the East End and initiates hockey programs in area school districts. But an East End rink is absolutely essential as ice time at West Suffolk and Nassau rinks is scarce.

The nonprofit group needs to avoid the cost of a second move, said board member Chris Keber, who attended the working session with Albert and the organization’s attorney, Stephen Kiely. So Peconic Hockey needs a place “to store equipment,” Keber said.

Riverhead officials have expressed concern about agreeing to store it without a long-term ground lease and management agreement.

Councilor Ken Rothwell, who said he has played ice hockey all his life, said he knew the East End needed an indoor rink. Teams travel to Kings Park and beyond for ice time at all hours of the night and early morning. He remembers playing hockey at 6 a.m. on school days when he was young.

Councilman Tim Hubbard agreed. He remembers playing ice hockey as a teenager at 1 a.m. “out west” because there was no other ice time available. As a police officer who ran the Riverhad PAL program for 30 years, he said, he knows there would be a lot of local demand for the rink.

“How soon can we get a contract and do it?” Rothwell asked. He said he was concerned that Riverhead was “a detention center” and that the rink would end up somewhere else. “I would advocate that I want it here,” he said.

Keber said he and Albert were residents of Riverhead and wanted to put the rink here.

“Riverhead is perfect. It ticks all the boxes,” he said, with the Long Island Expressway terminus and “the confluence of the two forks” and all the infrastructure, including hotels, to support tournaments and leagues.

The city council asked Assistant City Attorney Ann Marie Prudenti to negotiate the terms of a licensing agreement and/or ground lease with Kiely.

“Our ambition is to get the kids skating this fall,” Albert said. “We are ready to move forward.”

Anticipating that the single rink will be in high demand, Peconic Hockey would look to build a permanent structure with multiple rinks, Albert said. It would be “really important” for the city, he said. This would allow “multiple tournaments, multiple camps”, which are “real money makers for the city” in terms of patrons at local hotels and restaurants.

The domed rink “would be a stepping stone,” Kiely said.

Prudenti said the arrangement is not that simple. The site, because it is a park, is “impressed with public confidence,” Prudenti said. As such, it must meet certain legal standards.

A private partnership agreement must be signed “immediately” before the city can take the next step, Prudenti said. The deal “must give our residents a benefit they don’t already have,” Prudenti said. “And it needs to be structured in such a way that – whether it’s free use or a recreational program, we really need it right now,” she said. “It’s been planned for a few years,” she said. “There’s no reason why it shouldn’t be done immediately,” Prudenti said.

“I will work with the city attorney’s office to negotiate a settlement,” Kiely said.

“It’s an exciting thing,” supervisor Yvette Aguiar said, adding, “I’ll be out there on skates.”

North Texas Olympic figure skaters Ashley Cain-Gribble and Timothy LeDuc announced Monday that they are retiring from competitive skating.

In a video posted on Instagramthe duo thanked everyone for the support they’ve received over the past six years and said “goodbye to the competitive side of skating,” LeDuc said.

“It was really amazing, like every day I feel like we were able to find joy in what we were doing,” Cain-Gribble said. “We’ve been able to accomplish all of our goals together and travel the world and do it with a lot of people that we love and have been supporting by our side. So I think that’s pretty amazing.

Both have announced that they will take on coaching roles.

Cain-Gribble, 26, plans to train alongside his parents in North Texas and will compete in professional ice skating shows.

LeDuc, 32, plans to coach in Chicago.

“We had six really, really great years,” LeDuc said. “We’ve accomplished so much, so many of our big goals that we have to check off our list, and it’s been a really fun time.”

Cain-Gribble and LeDuc, who teamed up in 2016, placed eighth in their Olympic debut at the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, where LeDuc also became the country’s first openly non-binary Winter Olympian.

The duo won their second national title in January but pulled out of the world championship in March after Cain-Gribble suffered a brutal crash on the ice.

“We take it as it comes,” Cain-Gribble said, with LeDuc adding that the duo will try to do some on-ice shows together in the future.

“Right now we’re saying goodbye to the competitive side of our skating, and we just wanted to jump on it and say we love you, thank you for everything,” LeDuc said.

Although hockey is one of the most popular sports in Alaska, it is among the least accessible and least affordable for children. Getting the right gear and finding affordable camps can be a financial burden that many parents cannot afford or have chosen to avoid, opting to enroll their children in other activities.

Last year, the Bristol Bay Native Cooperation entered into a partnership with the NHL’s Seattle Kraken. A year later, the two organizations teamed up to host a week-long training camp for young participants at the Anchorage Youth Hockey Academy. They have also partnered to sponsor 19 children 12 and under who otherwise might not have the means to participate.

“Hockey definitely has a financial barrier,” said Kraken player development coach Katelyn Parker. “Being able to overcome some of these obstacles together to provide space for those who otherwise might not be able to afford to come to camp and they will have the same experience as those who can afford to.”

Last week around 200 children with a mix of boys and girls participated in the first “Kraken Week” and those who were sponsored included nine boys who are either shareholders or descendants of BBNC shareholders and 10 girls sponsored by the Kraken.

“This is not just a camp to practice and learn about the sport of hockey,” said BBNC President and CEO Jason Metrokin. “It’s a camp where kids see and interact with role models, people who focus on healthy lifestyles, and coaches who have great leadership skills.”

The camp lasts six weeks in total and the total cost for unsponsored children is $330 per week.

“We are just so lucky to have amazing partners and Bristol Bay Native Corporation being one of them and allowing us to be involved in the Alaskan hockey community,” Parker said. “We’re thrilled to be here just to spread the brand and spread the passion for Seattle Kraken hockey.”

Eleven-year-old Mason Nevin is one of the sponsored campers and part of the 12U group. He has been playing hockey since he was three years old and said he really enjoyed Kraken week.

“It’s amazing for free,” Nevin said. “It was fun to drill, skate and shoot.”

This is his second hockey camp. He plays center and left wing.

He says his favorite thing about hockey is “scoring goals and celebrating” and that the sport has allowed him to make a lot more friends.

In addition to Parker, the NHL expansion team has sent several members of its team of player development coaches whose duties include structuring practice plans, program and growing the game. focuses on teaching the fundamentals of the game of hockey, such as balance, skating, puck handling, shooting and passing.

“It’s about building skills and finding ways to make it fun and keep moving,” Parker said. “If they’re sweating and smiling, we’re doing a really good job.”

David Kyu-Ho Min is a player development coach who grew up in the Seattle area but was born in Seoul, South Korea.

He played junior hockey in the NAHL and the United States Premier Hockey League before becoming a coach and is happy to see more diversity in the sport.

“It was super cool to see the different walks of life,” Kyu-Ho Min said. “When I was growing up, I was the only Korean player in Washington.”

He believes teams and organizations need to be aware and deliberate to grow the game into untapped markets.

“Instead of just saying you’re going to do it, stepping is very important,” Kyu-Ho Min said.

Parker started playing hockey at age four and grew up in Bellingham, Washington, an hour and a half north of Seattle.

She played men’s hockey as a child and in college at Colgate University Division I and coached college hockey for five years. Parker has just completed her first year with the Kraken and is happy to see the participation and inclusion of women at camp.

“Seeing ponytails and long hair is amazing,” Parker said. “Hockey is for everyone and the game is growing. It’s exciting to see the girls’ game grow because eventually we’ll have more Olympians and varsity players.

Since the start of the partnership, Metrokin says there has been an increase in popularity and curiosity about the team and the sport itself among their shareholders.

“A lot of Alaskans are already Seattle Seahawks fans and now we’re seeing a lot of Alaskans, including our shareholders, becoming Kraken fans,” Metrokin said.

Rosner Wrap: Banned Rangers Fan, Burns On The Move? https://speedskating.org/rosner-wrap-banned-rangers-fan-burns-on-the-move/ Sat, 11 Jun 2022 12:48:03 +0000 https://speedskating.org/rosner-wrap-banned-rangers-fan-burns-on-the-move/ Former New York Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk loved his time on the island and his teammates miss him.

Former New York Islanders defenseman Johnny Boychuk loved his time on the island and his teammates miss him. With assistant coaching spots available, could Boychuk be behind the bench for the 2022-23 season? Could San Jose Sharks defenseman Brent Burns be on the move?

These stories and more in today’s daily links!

Following Thursday’s announcement of the layoffs of assistant coaches John Gruden and Jim Hiller, the New York Islanders now have holes to fill in their coaching staff. While those decisions will fall to new head coach Lane Lambert, there is one former New York Islanders player who could be a perfect candidate to join the bench. And that’s Johnny Boychuk. (NYI Hockey Now)

As a sports fan, you only see what the camera shows you. Whether it’s a scoring goal, a turnover in center ice, or a player chatting after the last game, we very rarely see player interaction away from bright lights. Last season I got to see the relationship between Matt Martin and Ross Johnston up close, and it sure is special. (NYI Hockey Now)

Two heavy decisions and a cascade of actions, reactions and consequences await you. As Kasperi Kapanen recently laughed, the Pittsburgh Penguins have bigger decisions (than him), as new contracts for Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang headline GM Ron Hextall’s to-do list. writes Dan Kingerski. (Pittsburgh Hockey Now)

In 2020-21, Washington Capitals defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk found himself skating regularly with the extras and taxi crew. Due to the team’s depth on the blue line, TVR was mostly a healthy zero and seventh defenseman skating in just 20 games and spending most of his time using extended practices as his games. Now he is arguably one of the team’s greatest assets on the blue line, writes Sammi Silber. (washington hockey now)

Two former Stanley Cup winners from the Detroit Red Wings are running for president of the Czech Ice Hockey Association. Czech hockey legend Jaromir Jagr supports one, but it’s probably not the one you’re thinking of, writes Bob Duff. (Detroit Hockey Now)

Watching the New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday brought me back to Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Philadelphia Flyers and Chicago Blackhawks in 2010. If you’re a Flyers fan, you surely remember how lucky Jeff Carter could have lifted his team in Game 7, writes Sam Cardichi. (Philly Hockey now)

OK, so do you remember when Adrian Dater told you a few days ago that the Stanley Cup Finals would start on June 15 or June 18? Well, yes, he was right about that (what does that say about a blind squirrel and acorns again?). Here is the official schedule for the Stanley Cup Finals between the Avalanche and…ahh, we don’t know yet. (Colorado Hockey Now)

Welcome back to Vegas Hockey Now’s season review series where we take a look at every Vegas Golden Knights player and their 2021-22 season, from Michael Amadio to Zach Whitecloud. Today’s player is Shea Theodore. (Vegas Hockey Now)

Could Brent Burns play somewhere other than San Jose next year? Makes sense: Burns is still a top defenseman, he’s 37, and the San Jose Sharks are three years old and short of the playoffs. But where could he go? (San Jose Hockey Now)

Looking at the circumstances of the Calgary Flames offseason, we start with the easiest. Despite an extremely disappointing second-round outing against the Edmonton Oilers, the Flames are placed in the goalie position, writes Steve MacFarlane. (Calgary Hockey Now)

The Canucks roll call rates every player who figured prominently in the Vancouver Canucks’ 2021-22 season fortunes. We’ll take a look at the ups and downs they’ve had in the recent campaign, as well as what the future holds for them in Vancouver. Today we feature forward Jason Dickinson. (Vancouver Hockey Now)

After a vicious punch from a New York Rangers fan knocked out a Tampa Bay Lightning fan after the Rangers lost in Game 5, Madison Square Garden banned 29-year-old James Anastasio from never set foot in the arena again. He was arrested shortly after throwing the punch and was charged with two counts of assault, two counts of disorderly conduct and two counts of harassment. (Athleticism)
