Hjalmarsson rocks Rattie

The Chicago Blackhawks may have lost a defenseman's services into the regular season as Niklas Hjalmarsson hit Ty Rattie late in the Hawks' 4-0 win over St. Louis on Saturday night, with Hjalmarsson earning a match penalty on the hit:

Hawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson received a match penalty for a shoulder to helmet hit he delivered on Blues winger Ty Rattie in the third period. Hjalmarsson is suspended for Sunday’s game against the Red Wings, a game he was unlikely to play anyway, and could face more discipline pending further review of the hit from the NHL’s Department of Player Safety.

Canadian Juniors Army Training

From Vicki Hall at the Calgary Herald:

“I think they’re going to do that parachute jump. So they’ll be looking forward to it. And I guess they’ll be carrying backpacks and stuff like that. But the army is in charge of that stuff, so it will be fun to watch.”

St. Louis Blues prospect Ty Rattie respectfully waffled on the “fun” concept - especially when it came to the notion of the parachute jump.

“I’m on the ground, so it interests me now,” he said. “I think if I get up there, it might not be so interesting. But I think I would do it.”

Vancouver Giants forward Brendan Gallagher expressed similar misgivings, but also opted to stay positive about the ordeal ahead of him.

“I’ve heard we’re repelling down walls, which I’ve never done before,” said the fifthround (147th overall) draft pick of the Montreal Canadiens. “I’m obviously not used to being in a military camp.”
