    With the return of Mike Modano to Dallas as a member of the Detroit Red Wings, it’s only fair to hear from the captain of the Dallas Stars, Brenden Morrow, to hear his thoughts on the homecoming of a Stars icon.

    Simon Gagne

    During the off-season when it came time for the Philadelphia Flyers to shed some salary to be able to have some spending flexibility during the summer, there weren’t a lot of candidates to be sent out of town to make it happen. One guy who stood out amongst the pack thanks to having just one…

    John MacLean

    The life of a head coach in the NHL isn’t all cliche answers to a reporter’s questions and looking dapper in a suit behind the bench. Sometimes cracking a few heads in practice is part of the job, just that that part of the job doesn’t always happen three games into the season. Welcome to…

  19. Sex abuse charges against former Kings assistant coach dropped

    Oct 13, 2010, 1:47 AM EDT

    Back in May when then Kings assistant coach Mark Hardy was arrested for sexual abuse against his daughter, we expected an ugly incident to get an equally as ugly trial. As things can sometimes happen when dealing with the courts and the legal wranglings therein, things are not going to turn that way. After going…

    Oct 12, 2010, 11:13 PM EDT

    New York Islander Training Camp

    The NHL handed down their decisions for James Wisniewski and Niklas Hjalmarsson. So how did two entirely different things lead to the same punishment? Easy, the NHL has goofy values.

    Minnesota Twins v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    While we’ve seen our host of hockey legacies through time with Gordie Howe and his sons as well with virtually the entire Sutter clan, following in the footsteps of your father who’s regarded as the greatest player of all time has to be especially daunting. That’s why when Wayne Gretzky’s son Trevor made his choice…

    Niklas Hjalmarsson

    The NHL suspended Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson for two games for his hit on Sabres forward Jason Pominville. This times out well enough to get Hjalmarsson back on the ice to play the Sabres again on Saturday. Who’s ready to play the feud?!
