He's got insane shooting % at above 20.

Really wonder how he maintained that all year long.

Same with NYI's Lee.

I know someone closer to home who would knocking on 40 if he wasn't injured :scowl: - and I don't think any of us would have expected it, either!

Speaking of Karlsson, but up in Ottawa:

Yeah, that truly sucks. Don't even want to think about what it would be like in his shoes.

Hockey players are human after all and there's life outside the rink.
Love the Sport. Love the Team.

Hate the League.

#NHLJets captain Blake Wheeler is sent off the ice by HC Paul Maurice after dropping his gloves and going after Ben Chiarot.

@ScottBilleck

Blake Wheeler and Ben Chiarot just fought with each other here at practice. Appears that Wheeler took a slap shot at Chiarot. Looks like Scheifele cross-checked Chiarot and then Wheeler stepped in and began throwing punches at Chiarot. #NHLJets

@SportsnetSpec

A scrap breaks out at Jets practice. No kidding. Blake Wheeler in the middle of it, looked like he was going after Ben Chairot. Scheifele in there too. Wheeler heads to room, welt near left eye.
Chiarot getting the Eastvander treatment in Winnipeg.

Gotta love it when your captain fires a slap shot at you in practice. :roll:

Apparently Chicago has signed Gaudette's team mate - Sikura. This is getting nerve racking.

Curious, how Northeastern's line-up is looking next year, losing Sikura, returning for another year may not be so attractive???

#flames will be without Johnny Gaudreau tomorrow night vs. #Kings for personal reasons. He’s flown out East to be with his family.

https://www.tsn.ca/ehrhoff-retires-stil ... -1.1039503

Former NHL defenceman Christian Ehrhoff announced his retirement from professional hockey on Monday

He was bought out by Buffalo after just three seasons in 2014, leaving the team with an annual payment of $857,143 for 14 years. He is still owed $8.57 million by the Sabres and will receive cheques through 2027-28.

He he he.

Ehrhoff -- great acquisition (Patrick White!) and good decision to not re-sign. Best two seasons were in Vancouver, and he has millions because of them.....
