At the young age of 73, Jacque Lemaire is still involved in the hockey world.  Starting his hockey career as a player in 1967 with the Montreal Canadiens.  He would go on to play his entire career for the Habs, scoring 835 points in 853 games, winning a staggering eight Stanley Cups. Of course, times... Continue Reading →

Braden Schneider

Braden Schneider, drafted in the first round by the Brandon Wheat Kings, is going to be drafted in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft.  It's entirely likely that Braden will move up and down in prospect rankings but it looks like this draft will be one for the ages.  With high end players like Alexis Lafrenière...

Adam Ruzicka

Adam Ruzicka was a member of this year's Team Slovakia team at the World Juniors in Vancouver.  After having gotten Ian Scott as of late and Michael DiPietro when he was the Spitfires, I'm happy to continue to watch high profile players sign in the CHL.  During the tournament, Adam posted three points in the...

Tyler Steenbergen

Tyler Steenbergen, world juniors golden goal scorer in the 2018 tournament, was a fifth round selection by the Arizona Coyotes.  He's now riding with the Tucson Roadrounners, the AHL team located in the same state as their NHL counterpart.  Given that it's his first professional season, he'll have a bit of a learning curve.  He...

Ian Scott

Toronto fans have a lot to be happy about with prospect Ian Scott performing as well as he has this WHL season.  He's currently second in wins, even though he's only played 40 games this season due to an injury.  For the record, Dustin Wolf of the Everett Silvertips has 4 more wins than Scott...

Danil Antropov

I do like it when I recognize a CHL player's family member or find out that they have some connection to a former NHLer.  It makes writing to that player so much easier to do!  With Danil Antropov, you can probably guess that this is Nik's son, whom played for teams like the Toronto Maple...

Steve Bernier

Steve Bernier is currently playing for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers as of late but has had a very good career in the NHL. He was a first round pick being selected by the San Jose Sharks in 2003. I'd have to say 2003 was one of the very best (at least in my NHL watching... Continue Reading →

Rob Blake

Rob Blake literally needs no introduction.  Everyone who was a fan of hockey since the 90s know who he is and what he's accomplished.  Hockey Hall of Fame in 2014, 8 x all-star selection, a Norris trophy in 1998 and finally a Stanley Cup with the Colorado Avalanche in 2001.  That Colorado Avalanche team had...

Nathan Dunkley

Nathan Dunkley, formerly a Front, is now with the London Knights.  He was traded to the Knights at the beginning of 2018 along with two draft picks for Cliff Pu.  Obviously, that was a play by the Frontenacs to push themselves deep into the playoffs as they also traded for Max Jones, Sean Day and...

David Emma

This blog post is going way off the map, since I don't believe I've ever gotten an autograph on an NCAA hockey card.  As seen here, David Emma, was a Hobey Baker Award winner in 1991 with the Boston College Eagles and had a very promising career. The award is given to the best college... Continue Reading →

Rick DiPietro

Rick DiPietro, 1st overall pick in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, was selected by the Mike Milbury and the New York Islanders.  He has the prestigious honor of being one of three goalies in all of the NHL history to be selected first in an NHL draft.  Unfortunately, Rick also has the reputation of the...
