Hockey is one of those sports where you can like players that aren't on your team. For me, one of those players is Teemu Selanne, who has played his final NHL game after 21 seasons in the league. The "Finnish Flash" is the all-time leader in scoring at the Olympic ice hockey tournament with 43 points in his Olympic career.
Hockey is famous for its inclusion of fighting within its sport. While hardcore fans have mixed to appreciative feelings toward fighting, the rest of the world isn't paying too much attention to the fighting.* Then a line brawl happens, and everyone is watching and saying their two cents. Here's a look at some of the best (?) line brawls in hockey.
I was looking around the internet for some good interviews with Carey Price, when I found this gem. Olaf Kolzig spent a lot of time with the Americans during the 2005 NHL lockout, and made a special friend: Carey Price.
Even though the United States lost the bronze medal match after losing to Team Canada for a chance for gold, it's still cool to see players ecstatic about being champions.
Thanks to defenseman PK Subban (Montreal Canadiens) for having his camera out to celebrate with his Team Canada teammates when they secured gold with a 3-0 win over Sweden.
I've got a lot of ties to our neighbors up north, so many that often times I'm associated as being Canadian myself. I frequent the beautiful land often, and when I'm in the states, I'm in the homes of Canadian families. They spoil me with their nationally exclusive foods, which I want to share with you.
It's no secret that hockey players are some of the toughest dudes in all of pro sports. Pittsburgh Penguins right winger Pascal Dupuis unnecessarily proved that Wednesday night after catching a high stick from a teammate and then doing his own dental work on the bench.
Remember that Tiger Woods commercial years ago where he bounced the ball on a club before hitting it a few hundred yards? Well this video of Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Kane almost makes that look like childs play.
Last winter, former Tri-City Americans defenseman Clayton Stoner was lucky enough to win one of only 300 a grizzly bear hunting licenses through a British Columbia limited entry lottery. Little did the current Minnesota Wild player know a photo taken after his successful hunt would put him at the center of controversy.
