Military personnel, multiple Royal Canadian Air Force aircraft in the background, security checkpoints out the wazoo and members of the federal government on hand in the crowd – it had all the makings of an election campaign appearance or an announcement of new fighter jets for the military.
Instead, we got our hockey team’s jerseys. From the back of that massive Hercules strolled Nik Antropov, Andrew Ladd, Mark Stuart and Eric Fehr, looking like an awkward boy band as they emerged through the smoke and blue light to some heavy guitar riffage.
Atlanta Thrasher release...
The Atlanta Thrashers have re-signed defenseman Mark Stuart to a multiple-year contract extension, according to General Manager Rick Dudley. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Stuart, 26, has seen action in four contests with the Thrashers this season after being acquired by team in a trade with Boston on Feb. 18. Prior to arriving in Atlanta, the 6-2, 215-pound defenseman played in 31 games for the Bruins, totaling five points (one goal, four assists) with a plus-8 rating and 23 penalty minutes. In 287 career NHL games with Boston (2005-06 to 2010-11), Stuart has 40 points (13 goals, 27 assists) and 294 penalty minutes.
A look around at the Southeast Division teams in action tonight:
Atlanta at Buffalo
If Rick Dudley is deciding between buyer and seller mode, this might just be the game to shove him swiftly in one direction or the other.
Atlanta has been in a tailspin in the new year, with just three regulation wins since we said farewell to 2010. Currently, the Thrashers have lost seven out of their last eight and are just 2-10-4 in their last 16.
They sit five points behind eighth place Carolina and are tied, points-wise, with tonight’s opponent, though their meeting with Buffalo becomes is that much more pivotal with the Sabres having two games in hand on Atlanta.
New faces Blake Wheeler and Mark Stuart, acquired last week from Boston, will each play in their second game as a Thrasher tonight. Both made an impact in their Atlanta debut in Edmonton Sunday, despite the team’s 5-3 loss, with Wheeler assisting on an Andrew Ladd tally and Stuart scrapping with J-F Jacques in the second period.

BOSTON (December 8,2010)- Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli issued the following update today on defenseman Mark Stuart, who was injured in the first period of the Bruins/Sabres game on December 7:
Mark sustained a fracture to the 4th metacarpal of his right hand (ring finger) and dislocated his 4th metacarpal phlangeal joint. He was evaluated by Dr. Matt Leibman at Newton-Wellesley Hospital and is expected to miss approximately 4-6 weeks.
from Bob McKenzie of TSN,
I am often told that we must be very careful we don’t “take hitting out of the game.”
I am not sure that’s possible. It’s hockey, after all. Hitting is such an intrinsic part of it that I can’t imagine there’s a rule change or interpretation that would “take hitting out of the game.”
But if the goal is to make sure hitting stays in the game, can someone explain to me, please, the curious case of Boston defenceman Mark Stuart.
On Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings, Stuart delivered a well-timed, open-ice hit on Los Angeles King star Anze Kopitar. It was a clean but crushing blow.

from The Boston Bruins,
Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed defenseman Mark Stuart to a multi-year contract extension. Per club policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed.
The Boston Bruins’ own Milan Lucic in The Hockey News,
My place is just outside the city in Charlestown – or ‘Chucktown’ as it is called here. I live close to three of my teammates; Marc Savard, Jeremy Reich and Mark Stuart. Because of our close proximity, we always carpool to practice in the morning (our practice rink is about 25 minutes north of Boston).
Every morning we’ll discuss what’s going on around the league, who won games the night before and what our schedule looks like coming up.

from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,
Chara said the Canadiens started all the nonsense on the ice, but were unwilling to finish it, and that what goes around, comes around, etc.
(The two teams meet next on Dec. 6 in Boston.)
Carbonneau was buying none of that, with these illustrations:
Ten minutes into the third period, Bruins’ Jeremy Reich, who’d played not enough this game to work up a sweat, ran Canadiens goalie Carey Price;
Less than a minute later, Bruins defenceman Mark Stuart pummelled a why-me? Andrei Kostitsyn.
