Watching The World Cup Of Hockey In Canada
TORONTO (September 30, 2016) O Canada! Hockey continues to reign supreme across the country, both on and off the ice, as 15.5 million people – more than 1 in 3 Canadians – watched some part of the World Cup of Hockey 2016 tournament, which ended last night in spectacular fashion with Team Canada being crowned World Cup champion.  Last night’s hard-fought Game 2 Final delivered an average audience of 2.27 million viewers (2+), with mo...

Interesting Remarks On Jacob Trouba
As I was saying about Trouba, good skill, big, can skate but pro scouts wonder how well he processes the game. He's not offensive D either. — Jim Matheson (@NHLbyMatty) September 30, 2016

Afternoon Line- Eric Francis
It’s tough to come down hard on hockey fans in Toronto given all they’ve gone through, but surely it wasn’t lost on NHL brass how disappointing the World Cup crowds were. Despite millions of dollars in marketing and promotions around downtown Toronto that included an expansive and pricey fan zone, endless advertising and six-foot high pucks at hundreds of street corners, the rare chance to see hockey’s best-on-best featured thousands of empty seats most games. ...

All Donald Fehr
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, Pierre LeBrun sat down with NHLPA executive director Donald Fehr on Thursday night before the final game to discuss the event's impact and its future. Pierre LeBrun: Can you share your observations so far on how the World Cup has played out? Donald Fehr: The first thing I would obviously look for is, How do the players feel? And it seems to be uniformly positive. They like the event, they like the format, they really enjoy the level of the competition ...

The Winnipeg Jets Need To Keep Jacob Trouba
from Ted Wyman of the Winnipeg Sun, If I’m the Winnipeg Jets, I’m not trading Jacob Trouba just because he wants out. There’s simply too much on the line. Winnipeg is a small market and not a particularly desirable one for NHL players with many attractive options. The Jets are a draft and develop team because they have to be to have any hope of being successful. It’s imperative they hold on to the assets they acquire through the draft. To have a 22...

All The Best To Mattias Janmark Who Will Miss At Least 5-6 Months With Surgery On A Joint Disorder
from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News, Stars winger Mattias Janmark will have knee surgery to address an issue of osteochondritis dissecans and will be out a minimum of 5-6 months, general manager Jim Nill said Friday. Janmark, 23, has been skating in camp and was expected to play in the Stars' preseason game in Colorado Wednesday when his knee locked up. Doctors examined the knee and discovered the problem which is described by Wikipedia as: "A joint disorder in which cracks fo...

Chatting With Ken Hitchcock
from Darren Dreger ot The Dreger Report at TSN, I've covered Hitchcock teams since the 1980s when he had great success coaching the WHL's Kamloops Blazers and have always been impressed by his boundless energy and passion for the game. I, like many others, believed Hitch would have to be dragged from the bench, kicking and screaming, and didn't expect he would leave coaching on his own terms — at least, not yet. This week, I circled back to check in on the Blues and to see how ...

A New Atmosphere In Denver
from Mike Chambers of the Denver Post, Avalanche left wing Gabe Landeskog acknowledged Thursday that he was pleased to learn he will remain captain and that new coach Jared Bednar represents change from something that wasn’t working. Landeskog, who is preparing for his sixth NHL season, and fellow Swede Carl Soderberg practiced under Bednar for the first time Thursday. Both were given a couple days off after Sweden was eliminated from the World Cup of Hockey in Toronto. &ld...

Zach Werenski On A Similar Path As Jack Johnson
from Tom Reed of the Columbus Dispatch, Zach Werenski met Jack Johnson several years ago on a recruiting trip to the University of Michigan. Details of that autumn afternoon were clear for one, a bit hazier for the other.   Johnson was an established NHL defenseman hanging out at the Wolverines-Notre Dame football game with his younger brother, Kenny, also on an informal visit that day. “Jack was someone I kind of looked up to growing up,” the 19-year-old We...

Report- Coming Soon, An Enhanced Mobile App For The NHL
from Danny Ecker of Crain's Chicago Business, Major League Baseball's fingerprints are starting to show up more clearly on the NHL. In one of the first major new product launches since MLB Advanced Media took control of the NHL's digital assets, the league next week is expected to roll out a new mobile app called "Arena" that is modeled after the "Ballpark" app that MLBAM introduced in 2012, according to sources close to the leagues. Specific details of what the new app will incl...

Morning Line- Steve Simmons
“The best thing I saw, other than the kids, was (Sidney) Crosby’s first goal the other night. It reminded me of ’72 when Espo knocked the puck to Henderson. That and the three minutes of overtime between North America and Sweden. That was it for me. “A lot of hockey this time. Not much that anyone will remember.” -Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun where you can read more, mostly on the 1972 Summit Series.

No Retirement Talk From Clarke MacArthur
from Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Citizen, The calls for Clarke MacArthur to retire have already been heard since he suffered his fourth concussion in 18 months Sunday. He wants everybody to know he intends to be back as soon as he can. As the Senators prepared to face the Montreal Canadiens Thursday night at the Bell Centre in a pre-season game, the veteran winger took to his Instagram account around lunch time to say he’s on the road to recovery and he’s hopeful if ...

Team Canada Run Continues In International Play
from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, Greatest hockey team ever? Let the argument begin. With apologies to the great Soviet national teams of yesteryear that were simply outstanding but didn't get to regularly test themselves against NHL players, Team Canada circa 2014-16 might go down as the most dominating squad to ever hit the ice in the modern era. A perfect 12-0-0 between the 2014 Sochi Olympics and the World Cup of Hockey -- with Thursday night's thrilling 2-1 victory over Europe...

Sergei Bobrovsky Hopes Weight Loss Will Eliminate Groin Injuries
from Tom Reed of the Columbus Dispatch, Sergei Bobrovsky said in the offseason he lost “eight kilos,” which for the metrically impaired translates to 17 pounds. The Blue Jackets’ fitness fanatic wasn’t close to overweight. But in an effort to curb his rash of groin injuries, the goaltender chose to reduce the muscle mass he had built over the past few years. “That was one of the purposes coming into the season,” he said Wednesday. “I feel...

A Heartwarming Night For Jacques Demers
from Stu Cown of the Montreal Gazette, If there is a nicer gentleman in the world of sports than Jacques Demers I have yet to meet him. In fact, it would be hard to find a nicer man anywhere. So it was fantastic to see Demers’s smiling face again Wednesday night as he was inducted into the Quebec Sports Hall of Fame. It was also difficult to see him in a wheelchair and unable to speak, paralyzed on his right side. But it could have been much worse after the last Canadiens coach...

Welcome To The NHL Patrik Laine
from Paul Friesen of the Winnipeg Sun, But Laine has never, ever, experienced anything like a cutthroat NHL training camp before. And the first few days of his first one with the Winnipeg Jets have opened his eyes and screamed into his ears: he's not in Finland, or even the pro league in Switzerland, anymore. “We don't normally have nothing like the training camp,” Laine said, Wednesday. “Everybody comes to the practice and we don't have to kind of race (for) th...

The World Cup Of Hockey Could End Tonight
from Scott Burnside of ESPN, The World Cup of Hockey trophy, whatever the heck they call that monstrosity of an award that goes to the winner of the event, will be in the Air Canada Centre Thursday night as Canada tries to lock down its third consecutive best-on-best championship when it faces Team Europe. There's no question that the air has gone out of this tournament somewhat in recent days -- especially after Team Europe upended heavily favored Sweden in the semifinals, giving Ca...

Video- Patrick Maroon Suffers An Apparent Leg Injury
via Bruce McCurdy of the Edmonton Journal, The outcome can immediately be forgotten — Vancouver and Edmonton remain tied with 0 points — with the major concern being the health or otherwise of Patrick Maroon. The burly left winger, one of the better Oilers in this sloppy affair, left the game with a leg injury midway through the third period after an awkward hit by Vancouver’s James Sheppard. Maroon’s status was unknown after the game, but it didn’t look goo...
