Facebook Imposters

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from CBC,

Ottawa Senators forward Mike Fisher says he discovered through friends that someone on Facebook — a website where people set up profiles and exchange messages and photos — was posing as him.

“You know, they were e-mailing people, saying they were me and it wasn’t,” Fisher said….

A number of other NHL players have also complained that people are subbing for them on Facebook. Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson has several sites as do other players including Toronto Maple Leafs captain Mats Sundin, Calgary Flames captain Jarome Iginla and Flames forward Alex Tanguay..

More Visors

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Adam Proteau of the Hockey News,

For the eighth straight year, visor use by NHL players has risen from the previous season – and now stands at a full 50 per cent of the league – according to a new survey compiled by The Hockey News….

When The Hockey News first began tracking visor usage during the NHL’s 1998-99 campaign, only 15 per cent of players shielded their eyes. By 2001-02, that number had increased to 28 per cent (191 players), and by 2005-06, 38 per cent (244 players) were wearing visors.

Burke Has No Plans To Speak With Lowe

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the OC Register,

So what is likely to happen if Burke and Lowe cross paths Sunday in the press box?

“I assume we will,” Burke said. “His booth is right next to mine. I sit down. He sits down. And the puck drops.”

By his account, Burke “always” stops by the visiting general manager’s quarters to at least exchange pleasantries.

Sunday night?

“Not a chance,” he said.

Lecavalier Dropping Gloves More Often

Blog: KK Hockey By IwoCPO

From TSN’s Darren Dreger,

Vincent Lecavalier is making a case that he’s the NHL’s new version of the “total package.”

On Wednesday, the 2006-07 Rocket Richard Trophy winner was riled by an elbow to the head from Washington’s Shaone Morrisonn.

Lecavalier pursued Morrisonn into the corner and initiated a fight, something Maurice Richard had absolutely no problem doing back in his day as well.

The Conacher Soap Opera

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Neil Stevens at CP,

Hockey was in Brian Conacher’s blood, still is, and always will be.

At age 66, he weaves a fascinating tale of his life in and around the sport in his new book, “As The Puck Turns.”

“The story is not as much about me as it is my journey,” he said during an interview. “I always felt hockey played out as a soap opera.

“I had the title well in advance of ever putting pen to paper.”

Ozolinsh Update

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Working the Corners at the Mercury News,

For those asking about Sandis Ozolinsh . . . The veteran defenseman did play in two games with Worcester on a professional tryout contract and did get one assist. That stint is completed and Ozolinsh has returned to San Jose where he’ll pracitce this weekend under Mike Ricci’s watchful eye, then resume skating with the Sharks next week. Asst. GM Wayne Thomas, who’s in Detroit with the team, said the process is playing itself out and advised trying not to read too much into Ozolinsh’s return to San Jose at this point.

Kasparaitis Heads To Russia

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Blueshirts Blog at the NY Daily News,

Stuck in the minors with virtually no chance of being recalled because of his contract and how it fits under the salary cap, Kasparaitis has agreed to play the rest of the season for SKA St. Petersburg of the Russian Elite League. He told the Daily News that he’ll join the Russian club next week.

Technically, heading to Europe will be a violation of Kasparaitis’ contract. However, as the NHL has no transfer agreement in place with the Russian Ice Hockey Federation, the Rangers would have to sue SKA St. Petersburg to prevent the move.

And the Winner is…

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

Several weeks ago, readers were invited to submit a photo which they felt best illustrated the spirit of hockey coming into a new season, and now we have a winner:  KK member “The Freak” will be receiving a new, $169 pair of Easton Hockey Stealth S11 hockey gloves for his great entry. 

We also decided to give out an unplanned second prize to “Jdunc”. His submission titled “Game Face” was taken while dressed up to watch a hockey game at home on the couch, so we’ve thrown in a $25 gift certificate just for fun, to Ice Jerseys.com.

Both winners will be contacted next week, and you can see their submissions below. Our thanks to Easton Hockey for the prize, and we’ll look forward to another contest in a couple weeks. 

And of course, thanks to everyone who participated!

The Quiet Goal Scorer

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Pierre LeBrun of the CP via Yahoo,

Quick, name the NHL’s leading goal-scorer heading into the weekend.

Rick Nash? Nope. Dany Heatley? Nope. Alexander Ovechkin? Nope.

Try Mike Cammalleri. The diminutive Los Angeles Kings forward has 10 goals in 11 games, but you’d be hard-pressed to find too many hockey fans who knew that. Despite leading the Kings in scoring last season with a career-high 80 points (34-46) in 81 games, Cammalleri doesn’t seem to get the notoriety he deserves around the league.
