James Engquist, the fan grabbed by Canucks forward Rick Rypien, isn’t happy with the punishment handed down by the NHL and says if he did that at his job he’d be fired. Welcome to reality, James.

If you’re a recently deposed former backup goalie in the NHL who was waived, what’s your next step for work? Turns out, playing in Europe is the answer.

The start of Olli Jokinen’s second tour of duty in Calgary isn’t exactly off to the start the Flames were hoping for.

Canucks forward Rick Rypien gets a six-game suspension, but we’re left feeling that that wasn’t enough.

With Canucks forward Rick Rypien’s hearing in New York City with the NHL front office underway today to decide what his punishment for grabbing a fan during a game will be, it’s about time we caught up with what you think his punishment should be. We polled you guys recently to find out what you…

We’re doubling our pleasure here because it’s just that good. The save of the night comes from overtime between Pittsburgh and Nashville where Pascal Dupuis bailed out his goalie Marc-Andre Fleury from losing in embarrassing fashion, preventing Cody Franson from stuffing home a loose puck off a J.P. Dumont shot. Shortly after that, Kris Letang…

Congratulations to everyone reading this, you’ve made it to Friday. Your reward for making to the weekend? An evening filled with hockey, five games worth. As always, here’s the schedule with all times Eastern. 7:00 pm Calgary @ Columbus I don’t suppose too many folks will be eyeballing the attendance in Columbus will they? After…

While there may not have been too many people there to see it, the highlights of the goals of the night belong to Phoenix’s Lee Stempniak for bagging a hat trick in the Coyotes 4-2 win over the Kings. It was Stempniak’s first career hat trick and we’ll not hear anything about the third goal…

Here’s your wrap up on a busy night in the NHL and some of the big names came out to play, meanwhile no one came out to watch hockey in Arizona.

Johan Franzen’s return to the ice following a slight concussion last week turned out to be a pretty good one for the Detroit Red Wings. Franzen’s goal midway through the third period proved to be the game-winning goal for the Wings in their 4-2 win over Calgary. Franzen did it in an interesting way though,…

The Islanders and Lightning needed overtime to settle things and Matt Moulson was credited with the game-winning goal in overtime as he apparently got one slightly past Lightning netminder Dan Ellis. The goal was initially waived off by the referee who stood right over the play, but replay showed the puck apparently getting across enough…

If the fans in Arizona are excited about the prospect of keeping the Coyotes in town, they’ve got a very funny way of showing it.

They seem to mix together about as well as oil and water do, but cheerleaders are coming to Edmonton whether they like it or not.

Whether you’re interested for fantasy hockey reasons or just want to know which goalie your team is playing in a given day, we thought it might be helpful to share our best guesses (based on various previews from newspapers and Web sites plus our own instincts) on who might start each day. 7:00 PM ET…

Here are two overseas hockey items via ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun, from Switzerland and Russia. Honestly, I hadn’t really heard these rumors, but there were some whispers about former Phoenix Coyotes coach (and, oh yeah, possibly the greatest hockey player ever) Wayne Gretzky coaching in Russia for SKA St. Petersburg. Despite being friends with SKA chairman…

After missing three games because of post-concussion syndrome caused by a rugged hit by New York Islanders defenseman James Wisniewski, Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News reports that Dallas Stars forward Jamie Benn should return for tonight’s game against the Florida Panthers. Heika writes that Benn will join Steve Ott and Brandon Segal on…

When the Pittsburgh Penguins traded peanuts/a bag of hockey pucks/some other phrase that indicates very little to the New York Islanders for Bill Guerin, I cannot say that I was wildly impressed. After all, Guerin was no spring chicken and didn’t exactly flourish after an earlier trade deadline deal brought him to San Jose. Yet…

Despite pleas from Gary Green of On the Fly, Carolina Hurricanes forward Erik Cole will not face league discipline for his hit on Los Angeles Kings defenseman Drew Doughty, according to Bob McKenzie of TSN. As for Cole-Doughty, NHL apparently believes contact was accidental/incidental so no discipline will be forthcoming. It’s hard to tell from…

After a few easy-to-follow days of four or five games, the NHL returns to a more hectic schedule tonight. There are 11 games overall, so let’s take a quick look at them all. All start times are Eastern (ET). 7:00 pm NY Rangers @ Toronto The Maple Leafs are coming off their first loss of…

This was mentioned briefly in the recap last night, but the Columbus Blue Jackets got some bad news Wednesday as rugged forward Ethan Moreau broke his right hand blocking a shot against the Anaheim Ducks last night. Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch writes that Moreau knew something was wrong right away and that he’ll…
