Hockey as Art

Great cartoon from Bob Krieger at The Province today. You can click the image to see it full size at The Province website, and see some more great stuff by Krieger.

Pretty impressive—you can find more of his work at his website

Incidentally, over at Pass it to Bulis, they noted this when posting the illustration above:

Diamond’s image is equal parts creepy and awesome. I love it. Know what else is creepy and awesome? Henrik Sedin, who wears number 33, played 33:33 last night. That has to mean something.

Finally, one of my all-time favourite hockey cartoon editorialists has to be Charlie Teljeur, who spent many seasons entertaining us with The Instigator at the CBC website. You can find archives there or at his own website

Meanwhile, here’s a fun one, for old time’s sake:

A classic.  Sorry, my Toronto friends, but some jokes just never get old… smile

Alanah McGinley has been blogging hockey since 2003 (with a notable gap in time through 2010, kicking it with new baby Lucy while living knee-deep in chaos while reading "parenting for complete idiots" during every spare minute) sharing opinions, rants and not-so-deep thoughts with anyone who will listen.

In addition to writing Canucks & Beyond and helping manage Kukla's Korner, Alanah was one of the founders and co-hosts of The Crazy Canucks Podcast. She has contributed pieces to FoxSports.com and the New York Times Slapshot blog, as well as other stray destinations in cyberspace.

So that's me. Who the hell are you? smile
