MLB Player Believes He Could Have Played In The NHL

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from USA Hockey, Darin Erstad, a first baseman with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, certainly made the right choice in deciding to chase his baseball dreams, but he still believes he could have made a go of it in hockey. “It takes a different breed of athlete to play hockey,” said Erstad. “But I’d like to think I would have had some fun and would have played the game pretty well. I don’t know if my skills would have helped me make the NHL, but I think I would have fit in just right.” read on image

Dandenault Clubs The Rocket

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Montreal Gazette,

This thought occurred to Mathieu Dandenault as he chased Maurice Richard down the wing in July, one take after another, after another, after yet another: "How do I club the Rocket over the head with a hockey stick and make it look authentic, without fracturing his skull?" Those who attend Charles Biname's magnificent film, Maurice Richard, will see that the Canadiens defenceman indeed found a way.

The NHL Hurricanes Storm Squad was started in 1999 with the opening of the Entertainment and Sports arena. As Brian Mehm, the Hurricanes Promotions and Fan Development Manager said "The fans love them and know them by name... it is wonderful to see how loved they are by everyone... women and men, kids and teenagers.

Sundin Says NHL Going Back To Old Ways

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from the Toronto Sun,

As this season dawned, the tables had turned. Skill was rewarded and Sundin, injured in the opening game, couldn't wait to get his revenge. But the view that Sundin has found back on the ice this month is not the same one he had from on high, wearing street shoes. He sees some subtle backsliding on enforcement. "If you compare the first two weeks to now, it's a big difference," said Sundin, moments after scoring the winning goal in overtime against Montreal on Saturday night. "I talked to one of the refs during the game. Now it's not back to where it was (two years ago) but I told him there's more clutch and grab out there. There's some hooking and holding going on.

East Meets West

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun,

Friday marks the start of full conference play, the first chance to judge if the new National Hockey League has retained any of its old flavour, pitting the wide-open West against the super-sized East. Kicking it off are clashes between division leaders, the Ottawa Senators and Los Angeles Kings, and the Carolina Hurricanes against second-place Dallas Stars. Among the most-excited observers in the coming weeks will be pro scouts such as Maple Leafs' Craig Button. "I think the East has been in transition for a couple of years, but we've had nothing to use as a measuring stick until now," Button said. "It will be good to see how Ottawa looks against Vancouver or what Tampa Bay does against Nashville. Then you have the individual matchups; Robyn Regehr against Dany Heatley, or Bryan McCabe on Jarome Iginla."

Why Players Play

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Weinrich, special to to Maine Today,

You often hear about how tough athletes are and the heroic tales of injured players performing in big games and leading their teams to victory. These are the stories of legend. But some folks would ask, "Why would a player risk his career, or put the team's future in jeopardy?" As a kid, it is just human nature because you want to play so badly, and a small bump or bruise doesn't hinder a performance or a playground game. As you get older, the injuries always seem to get worse and more troublesome. As a pro, it is your life and you must take care of injuries like a farmer takes care of his machines. If they are not working correctly, you don't get the most out of them.
