Nedved Trying Out for Rangers

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Steve Zipay at Blue Notes in Newsday:

Thirty-six-year old Czech center Petr Nedved, who played 478 games with the Rangers in three stints between 1992-93 and 2003-04, is coming to training camp to try to land a job.

“He has spoken with Tom and Glen and passed up some other offers in Europe, wanting to come to camp with the opportunity to earn a job here,” a Rangers spokesman confirmed a few moments ago. “There is no commitment on our end.”

Jail Time for Post-Game Hockey Brawl, Being Appealed

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From CBC,

A 23-year-old Calgary man sentenced to 30 days in jail Wednesday for assaulting a hockey linesman in 2006 will be filing an appeal, his lawyer says.

Robert Joseph Simard, who was convicted of kicking Rory McCuaig in face and knocking him unconscious in an off-ice brawl after a game, will serve his time on weekends beginning in August.

Simard’s lawyer, Alain Hepner, said the family is disappointed with the sentence, believing it is far too harsh, especially when compared to other hockey assault cases.

Is it just me, or does a 30 day jail sentence already seem like a pretty good deal for kicking a hockey official in the face and knocking him unconscious AFTER a game, and off the ice?

Seems like it could have been much harsher.

From Les Perreaux in the Globe & Mail,

Well, at least he’s still got that music career…

Jim Kyte’s Story

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Sabina Lam at The Hockey News,

imageJim Kyte was like any other tough guy in the NHL – big, tough and intimidating – except for one thing; he was legally deaf.

When Kyte entered the league in 1982-83, he became the first legally deaf player to suit up in the NHL. He was also the first player to wear hearing aids while playing and required a special helmet to protect them.

Kyte was born with perfect hearing, but discovered he was hearing impaired when he was three years old because of a hereditary hearing deficiency that cause his audio nerve to degenerate.

Are They Worthy

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Mike Heika at the Dallas Stars Blog,

The Hockey News had salary rankings in their most recent edition, and I was struck by who is makng the most money next season. While the old structure overpaid players who were 30-somethings, the new system seems to overpay players who are younger and who hit free agency at just the right time.

The rankings are based solely on salary for next season, and some players have a lower cap hit, but does anybody else see inequities with these Top 10s?

Rivet Ready To Play In Buffalo

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Bucky Gleason of the Buffalo News,

“I’m not going to lie. I wasn’t happy about being moved,” Rivet said by telephone. “It wasn’t the point of me going to Buffalo. I didn’t care where I would have gone. I was leaving a place that I really enjoyed. I had a great setup, and now that’s done. Now, I have to start over. We’ve heard great things about Buffalo. We’re excited.”

At first, it sounded like Rivet was sincere about the trade before backing off with lip service about the town. Actually, he’s been doing his homework. He sees the Sabres going in the right direction with a core of young players. Along the way, he’s learning that his perception of Buffalo was actually a misperception.
