The Sudbury Wolves evened the OHL league championship final with a convincing 7 - 3 victory over the Plymouth Whalers on Sunday evening. Andrew Self and Devin DiDiomete led the way for the Wolves with two tallies each while Matt Dias and Nick Foligno both tallied three assists. The four goal spread was rather strange considering the Whalers outshot the Wolves by a convinci...
The Lewiston Maineiacs on the strength of three staller goaltending performances are proving to be way too much for Val-dO'r in the QMJHL Championship series. Maineiacs goaltender, Jonathan Bernier was also named the CHL goaltender of the week for posting an 18 save shutout on Friday, followed by a 30 save performance on Saturday and a 26 save effort in game three last nig...

Starting first in the OHL, Sharks Prospects Jamie McGinn and Logan Couture of the Ottawa 67's played in two games this week. They started the weekend by losing in a shootout to Niagara 5-4. Captain McGinn logged one goal and one assist while Assistant Captain Couture logged three assists. Even though both were stopped by Andrew Loverock in the shootout, they were named ...
After a strong start to the OHL season that saw him post nine points in five September games, Logan Couture slowed down to only a point-a-game in October as he logged four goals and six assists for 10 points in 10 GP. Teammate Jamie McGinn logged seven points in eight October games before being forced out of the lineup with a back injury.
Couture currently sits T-26th ...
Hockey fans that have not spent much time in Southern California are often surprised to find the undercurrent of hockey support in the region.
Sure, the media coverage is largely non-existent while many people on the street have never seen a game live. But dig deeper and you will find a strong community of youth leagues, recreational leagues, and die-hard hockey fans.

[b]***BIG NAMES & SURPRISES HI-LITE DRIVE TO TRADE DEADLINE***[/b]
When you compare previous [b]WHL trade deadlines[/b] to the one that just passed us by [b]January 10[/b], things were relatively quiet on the wheeling and dealing front. Since the beginning of the...

Memorial Cup champion WHL [b]Vancouver Giants[/b].
Now that the 2008 Playoffs are underway in the WHL, I thought I might provide a quick recap of how each series has gone to this point. The Western Conference match-ups on paper are not nearly as close as those in the East, based primarily on how ...
The Islanders have had Joel "The Wrecker" Rechlicz sitting in the minors but have felt that he needed time to develop his game, as an enforcer, in the AHL before he could be considered as a legitimate NHL fighter.
Trevor Gillies, an AHL journeyman, has been playing with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers this season as well. Last year he played in 30 games with the Albany Riv...

Random Notes for all the junior buffs out there...
London traded up only to pass on Mikhail Grigorenko and instead pick up Finnish defender Olli Maatta 1st overall. Hey, if the Knights are doing it – it must be right.
Grigorenko drafted 2nd overall to the Quebec Remparts. This is a great primer for the young Russian leading into his draft year. CAN’T WAIT to ...
With the a 6-5 overtime loss to Russians, Canada's national junior team not only leaves Ufa with the disappointment of no gold medal, but also with the knowledge that they are the first Canadian team in fourteen years without a medal of any colour. That's a tough pill to swallow for anyone, let alone a bunch of teenagers who are faced with a level of expectation that most...
Ek posted a poll about NHL participation beyond Sochi, so I thought I'd have a few thoughts on the topic.
The reason the NHL players go to the Olympics is because they want to. They want to represent their countries in their sport on the biggest international sports event in the world.
The only thing holding up Olympic participation in any year has been the owners an...

In a strange twist of events these past five months, the last place Buffalo Sabres have made drastic changes to their lineup. The Sabres went from having no true first-line players to having now two in Kane and O’Reilly, with a third and fourth (Reinhart/Eichel) on the way. Add in swift sniper Matt Moulson and speedy work-horse Tyler Ennis to the list and the Sabres have...
As a Canucks fan I've been looking forward to this years entry draft a fair amount and keep thinking how much better off the Canucks would be if Jared McCann and Jake Virtanen could be learning in the Ahl but alas they played junior hockey in the Chl and aren't allowed to make that jump yet. So they are stuck playing 8-10 min a night in the NHL because they aren't quite re...
