Howdy, LHH. User Turgeon1992 has created a FanPost looking to put together the 2nd ever LHH pick-up hockey game, a sequel to the original in 2012. For more details and information regarding the potential event, click here for his FanPost.

Islanders Briefings

  • Well folks, I'm sure you've seen or heard about Larry Brooks' column regarding John Tavares. Basically, he says that Tavares isn't lying when he says when he wants to stay; it is more so whether the situation seems geographically stable and potentially victory-breeding. And aren't those the age-old Islander questions? [NY Post]
  • The Encyclopedia has been updated accordingly, of course. [LHH]

Other Hockey Extendings

  • The Vegas Golden Knights took a player to arbitration before they ever played a game, which is an extremely NHL thing to do. Anyway, Nate Schmidt signed a 2-year deal following the arbitration decision. [Knights On Ice]
  • The Carolina Hurricanes have been ready to break out for like four off-seasons, but they finally actually look poised to do so with Scott Darling, a true No. 1 goaltender. Or... IS HE??? and two other questions facing the 'Canes. []
  • The Ottawa Senators seem to be transitioning from the 3D Senturion head that currently adorns their main jerseys to the Heritage 'O' introduced ten years ago. A step up for sure, but I do miss the old 2D Senturion head from the 90s. [Silver Seven Sens]
  • The United States beat Canada 7-5 in the World Junior Summer Showcase Final, with Calgary Flames prospect Adam Fox and New Jersey Devils prospect Joseph Anderson playing large roles. []
  • Sidney Crosby had his day with the Stanley Cup, and he chose to spend the day at a children's hospital and veteran's retirement home in Halifax of his home province of Nova Scotia. Check out photos and such from the Keeper of the Cup. [Sportsnet]
