Invest In The Game

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Let's Play Hockey,

“You’re only a work-ethic away from the NHL.” Those are the words of one of the most experienced voices in hockey. Chuck Grillo (Pittsburgh Penguins and Minnesota Hockey Schools) has spent a lifetime helping coaches and players chase their dreams, and he knows first-hand there isn’t much difference between many who get to the NHL and some who don’t. However, this article isn’t about getting to the NHL — or to college hockey, to the high school varsity, or getting anywhere. It’s about enjoying hockey and being the best you can be — two ways of saying the same thing. Grillo’s advice is simple and basic: the more you invest, the more you’ll get back out of the sport.

All Bolts 24/7

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the St. Petersburg Times,

In a move that reflects the Tampa Bay Lightning's growing confidence in its brand name, the defending Stanley Cup champion may launch its own 24-hour cable TV channel on Bright House Networks. It would be just the second NHL franchise to do so, after the Toronto Maple Leafs. Although similar plans for a single-team station by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers fell apart last year, the Lightning and Bright House are hopeful hockey will succeed where football failed.

Comapring Hockey Parent To Golf Parent

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Fort Frances Times,

So we all know the legend of the hockey parent. Or do we? Let me explain. A “hockey parent” is one who believes their son or daughter will be the next Wayne Gretzky. This usually has to do with the fact they had the kid on the ice 12 hours a day since, well, basically from birth. They often are known to be saying things such as: “Jimmy Jr. sure has a natural ability on the ice, don’t you think?” They also are the ones who scream and yell in the stands, embarrassing their child—and nobody even knows what they’re yelling about. That’s a “hockey parent.” So what if I told you there was a sport that generates even worse parents? I call it the “Tiger Woods Effect.”

No Fine For Gretzky

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the CP via TSN,

Phoenix Coyotes head coach Wayne Gretzky was not fined $10,000 US for Shane Doan's late-game instigator penalty Tuesday night, The Canadian Press has learned. Part of the new NHL rules call for an automatic $10,000 fine to the head coach and a one-game suspension to the player who gets an instigator fighting penalty in the last five minutes of a game, a rule the competition committee put in to discourage late-game brawls. But NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell, who pushed for the new rule, also reserves the right to determine whether the rule applies on a case-by-case basis. The spirit of the rule was to get rid of coaches putting out their tough guys with a minute left in the game to settle a score. In this case, Doan is the captain and top player on the Coyotes, not a goon, so Campbell decided not to fine Gretzky and suspend Doan.

Q & A with Sergei

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from ESPN,

From Hockeytown all the way to Southern California, Sergei Fedorov has left an indelible mark wherever he has played. The 35-year-old center is a former MVP, a three-time Stanley Cup winner and one of the most decorated Russian-born players to skate in the NHL, and he might just be the player who can officially put Columbus on the NHL map. Question from David Amber: How did you find out you had been traded to Columbus? Answer from Fedorov: Brian Burke [Mighty Ducks GM] called me and told me I was traded. He gave me Doug MacLean's [Blue Jackets GM] phone number, and after I spoke with Brian, I called Doug. We talked briefly. He was really excited that the trade went through.

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from TSN,

The tug-of-war surrounding Alexander Ovechkin's playing future is expected to go to court before the end of the month. Anatoliy Harchuk, the Chairman of Dynamo Moscow hockey club, spoke to TSN about the Ovechkin court case: Q: What do you hope to achieve with this lawsuit? A: The main question to be decided by the court is for the Washington court to acknowledge the legality of our arbitration committee and forbid Alexander Ovechkin to play for any other hockey club than Dynamo, in accordance with the laws and rules that exist in our professional hockey league and the Russian hockey federation.
