Are Your Ready For Player Tracking Technology?

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Chris Johnston of Sportsnet,

 Player-tracking technology could be implemented across the NHL next season in place of the real-time statistics it has employed for more than a decade.

Officials from the league and NHL Players’ Association met earlier this week to discuss the Sportvision system that was tested at the all-star game in January, and are believed to be working towards a deal to have it fully operational for 2015-16.

That has been the NHL’s hope since a successful initial run-through in October, but it needs approval from the union to move forward.

Don Fehr, the NHLPA’s executive director, says a proposal is currently being reviewed internally and must still be looked at by the players. Asked for his views on the test at the all-star game in Columbus, he replied: “I think there are some very interesting things there.

KK- Update On KK Donation Drive At GoFundMe

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

The KK Donation Drive at GoFundMe reached 10% of my goal a few minutes ago and a big thanks to all of those who have made a donation.

I am driven to reach the $10K goal and hope all of the people who use KK on a regular basis will consider making a donation.

I have some goals I want to meet and while advertising income does help, it is by no means a get rich process.

How about those folks who follow KK on Twitter, imagine if only a small amount of the 24,900+ followers made even a smaill donation, we would be well on the way to reaching the goal.

Red Wings-Flames game-day articles: Wings want to work harder, play smarter than Hiller’s Flames

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Updated 8x at 2:54 PM: The Red Wings will most likely have Jonathan Ericsson's services when they tangle with the Calgary Flames this evening (7:30 PM EST on FSD Plus/Sportsnet West/TVA Sports/97.1 FM; the Wings are collecting school supplies this evening), and while the Flames may not have Mark Giordano in their lineup, they've still won 3 of their past 4 games, including a 4-3 shootout win over Boston last night.

The Flames sit tied for 3rd in the Pacific Division, and they actually have one less win than Detroit (36 vs. 35), but all the Wings' shootout losses = the Wings have 83 points to the Flames' 74.

The Detroit News's Gregg Krupa is first out of the chute with a game-day article, explaining Ericsson's status...

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

In my opinion, a very underrated hockey broadcaster.

RALEIGH, NC – Don Waddell, President of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the Hurricanes will honor television broadcaster John Forslund with a special pregame ceremony on Saturday, March 21, in celebration of his 20th year as the television voice of the franchise.

 

Hurricanes General Manager Ron Francis and the Hurricanes players will recognize Forslund’s milestone during the pregame ceremony, and tributes will be shown on the PNC Arena video board throughout the game. Thanks to Buffalo Brothers, the first 5,000 fans in attendance at the game will receive commemorative t-shirts featuring Forslund’s signature catchphrase, “Hey, Hey, Whaddya Say?!”.

Red Wings-Flames morning skate Tweets: Ericsson’s in (probably) as Wings take an optional

Blog: The Malik Report By George Malik

Updated 6x at 12:12 PM: The Red Wings face a test of a different kind against the Calgary Flames this evening (7:30 PM EST on FSD Plus/Sportsnet West/TVA Sports/97.1 FM; the Wings are collecting school supplies this evening), embarking upon a set of 3 games in 4 nights against a Flames team that's in a desperate struggle to earn a playoff sport.

Calgary also defeated the Boston Bruins 4-3 in a shootout last night, and they've won 3 of their past 4 games, so they're coming into tonight's game on a roll.

This isn't necessarily a good sign, per MLive's Ansar Khan:

Optional morning skate for Wings. Ericsson is skating, after missing practice yesterday.
