You Can’t Do That Off The Ice David

from KTVT,

A hockey player has been arrested after being accused of assaulting a flight attendant, exposing himself and head-butting a passenger on an American Airlines flight into DFW Airport. He is now facing federal charges.

According to court records, the pilot declared an on-board emergency when the flight attendants had difficulty restraining the player.

David Cornacchia, the arrested hockey player, was soft-spoken on Friday afternoon as he left the federal courthouse in Dallas

Could We Be Seeing More Of This?

from Capitals Insider,

Hershey Bears defenseman Jame Pollock has left the team and signed with CSKA Moscow of the Russian Super League.

The Bears/Capitals immediately suspended him without pay, but that’s probably all the organization will be able to do because Russia isn’t covered by the IIHF’s transfer agreement.

Patrick Roy Coaching Incident

From the Canadian Press,

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey league fined the Quebec Remparts $2,000 Thursday following an incident involving head coach Patrick Roy.

Roy, the NHL’s all-time leader in wins by a goaltender, earned an extreme game misconduct penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct after confronting the officials following Sunday’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.

Roy was not suspended for the incident.

Another Accident

On The Road Again

from Sam Donnellon of the Philadelphia Daily News,

Brian Boucher was living large again. No overnight herking and jerking in his bus seat this time. No cricks in his neck or tightened hamstrings from sleeping sideways, no sudden awakenings because of red lights that changed too fast, or drivers who loved to brake, or worst of all, those crater-sized potholes hidden amid moonless nights.

No, this bus had satellite television. And bunks. Not exactly Ritz-Carlton material, or even rock-star status. More like an Extended Stay America on wheels. But better than those upright rides up and down Route 13 to Norfolk, all the same.

The Judge Loves Hockey

from KearneyHub.com (Nebraska),

Whether he’s on the bench or sitting on the ice, Gerry Jorgensen’s jobs are a lot alike.

As one of two Buffalo County Court judges, Jorgensen can be found presiding over cases during the day, but by night he’s a Storm hockey off-ice official or fan….

In his spare time, he also collects hockey jerseys and maintains a message board tracking every former Storm player’s games, statistics, injuries and season-to-date totals, whether they’re playing college or professional hockey. But it wasn’t until November 2000 when the Storm came to Kearney that Jorgensen’s jersey collection went full strength.

Hockey Weekend

from Brad Holland at NHL.com,

Nashville’s Game Presentation: I had a chance to sit low in a very good seat last night, and watched the game with an ice-level view instead of a bird’s-eye. Outstanding! The Nashville fans were energetic, into the game, and right on top of the action. They were courteous, asking questions of me and even weren’t shy to give a few tips on how to make NHL.com better (I spent the third period sitting next to a young Predators fan and youth Nashville hockey player who knew as much about hockey-at-large as any Canadian kid…

more on Brad’s hockey weekend… and I think I may have to have a sit-down with young Bradley!
