Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

Ducks defenseman Kent Huskins will be out 2-3 weeks with a broken bone in his right foot, the Ducks announced today. Huskins played the entire game in a 2-0 loss Wednesday night to Columbus at Honda Center. But an MRI taken after the game revealed the injury

As a result, the Ducks recalled defenseman Brendan Mikkelson from the Iowa Chops, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League.

Surgery An Option For Gaborik

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from John Shipley of the Pioneer Press,

Marian Gaborik has a hip deficiency that is causing his groin problems and is contemplating surgery that would all but end his season, and perhaps his tenure with the Minnesota Wild.

Assistant general manager Tom Lynn said Thursday the decision likely will be made within the next two to three days.

“It’s something you can manage, or you can have surgery,” Lynn said.


That should put to an end all of those made-up rumors that Gaborik is about to be traded.

added 5:46pm, from Russo’s Rants,

This is catastrophic, and I’m not talking about what this does to the team this season.

The Wild likely would have an untradeable asset, one that would likely walk at the end of the season. From Gaborik’s perspective, there is no chance he’d command anything close to around the $8 million a year the Wild offered him at the start of the season….

I talked to Doug Risebrough this morning, and the reason I got real suspicious to pursue this story? When I asked if he was worried Gaborik woudn’t play again this season, Risebrough basically said yes. When I told him I had heard it was recommended Gaborik have season-ending surgery, he said, “I’m not commenting.

Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

“Ovechkin just doesn’t sit on the outside and take one-timers, he’s in front of the net, he goes behind. He does a lot of wraps. He’s a special player because he’s an aggressive player. That’s why I think he’s the best player, because he’s an aggressive player. He’s not just a pure sniper who sits on the outside all day.”

-Lightning coach Rick Tocchet on Alexander Ovechkin.  More from Damian Cristodero of Lightning Strikes as the Bolts prepare for the Capitals tonight.

+/- From The Winter Classic

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mark Hermann of Newsday,

MINUS: What’s with those Indiana Jones hats for Detroit coach Mike Babcock and his staff?

PLUS: The Cup champion Red Wings are still the class of the league. Outstanding team.

MINUS: Sad to say, but it’s hard to imagine if the casual sports fan—the person who flipped over from the Nebraska-Clemson game on CBS—could name even one player on the Red Wings.

PLUS: Excellent point by Bob Costas in the closing segment, pointing out that Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls kept getting thwarted by the Detroit Pistons on their way up, the way it looks like the Blackhawks will have to do.

Tanguay Out With Shoulder Injury

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via TSN,

The injury bug continues to bite at the Montreal Canadiens, as the club learned on Thursday that winger Alex Tanguay is out at least six weeks with what is described as a left “shoulder problem.”

Tanguay wouldn’t specify whether it was a separation, dislocation or strain, but was cradling his forearm as he left the press room at the team’s practice facility in Brossard.

Tanguay, who is third in team scoring with 10 goals and 26 points, suffered the injury in Tuesday’s game against the Lightning after a hit by Tampa’s Evgeni Artyukhin.

2009 Talk, Atlanta Style

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from The Iceman BLOGGETH,

• The Thrashers will finish low enough in the standings to own a lottery pick, (DUH5), and they will actually win the lottery to pick first in the draft. However, Don Waddell will pass up the opportunity to draft John Tavares, instead opting for Sven Sfadittlehoffen…the little-known 18-year old Swedish goalkeeper who has a 17-39-14 record with a 4.56 GAA and .841 SV% in Sweden’s Semi-Juniors. He’ll be eligible to play in the NHL after his 4-year stint in the Swedish Military. Waddell will refer to Sven as…the diamond in the rough that has gone under the conventional radar.

• We will enjoy watching all of these former Thrashers in the playoffs this spring… Marian Hossa, Pascal Dupuis, Braydon Coburn, Glen Metropolit, Marc Savard, Shane Hnidy, Eric Belanger, Andrew Brunette, Frantisek Kaberle and Bobby Holik. But not Dany Heatley. Ken Klee’s Coyotes will just miss out on the fun.

Winter Classic Jerseys

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

I am getting emails and hits from search engines looking for the Winter Classic jerseys so I thought this would help you out.

If you are looking for a jersey with a name on the back, IceJerseys.com does a great job.  I have personally seen their work with these jerseys and you will be getting the authentic lettering, meaning stitched on or as they refer to it, Pro Customization.

Shop.NHL.com also is selling the Winter Classic jerseys.
