Friday night’s QMJHL game between the Baie-Comeau Drakkar and Charlottetown Islanders concluded prematurely after an issue with the ice. The damage wasn’t actually that serious, until the officials stepped in to deal with it.
It's been six days since the Arizona Sundogs' owner and GM were buried in a dumpster until they reached their goal of 300 season tickets sold. They are not anywhere close to their goal.
Last year, the Arizona Sundogs—the Central Hockey League affiliate of the Phoenix Coyotes—put their co-owner, GM, captain, and marketing director in a scissor lift until they sold 300 season tickets. (It took six grueling days, but they did it.) The Sundogs have another stunt this year, but this time, people are being…
Above is a video taken Saturday night at an ECHL Idaho Steelheads game. It shows fans pouring a $7 large beer into a $4 small cup, and discovering that each holds exactly the same amount of liquid. Now the arena is facing a lawsuit, because rule number one in sports is that you don't shortchange hockey fans on beer.
This is a hockey love story.
The ECHL's Bakersfield Condors have announced "Undie Sunday," at which fans will be encouraged to hurl their (new, clean) bras and underwear onto the ice after the Condors' first goal.
The holiday season is here, which means it's time for a million videos of minor league hockey fans hurling teddy bears onto the ice. It's the most wonderful time of the year!
The 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address is coming up, and the Bakersfield Condors of the East Coast Hockey League are ready to celebrate the occasion in style. Which is to say, they will play a hockey game while wearing the patriotic-as-shit jersey you see above.
If you have small children, or a particular affinity for minor league hockey mascots, look away now. Police are investigating whether this attack on Marty the Marmot should be treated as a crime; fans are wondering if Canada couldn't institute capital punishment just this once.
If you live in Toledo and were having trouble finding something to do Saturday night (as if), you definitely now want to buy tickets to see the ECHL's Toledo Walleye host the Kalamazoo Wings. It's Star Wars Night. The teams will be wearing these sweaters.
NHL Hall of Famer Doug Gilmour is the GM of the OHL's Kingston Frontenacs, and last year spent an eighth-round pick on his son Jake. The Gilmour genes only bought Jake a year—yesterday, Doug sent his son packing for basically nothing.
Yesterday we brought you the story of a minor league hockey ticket promotion that has turned into a test of endurance. The sun has risen, we've hit hour 115, and the prisoners remain aloft until the Sundogs can hit their season ticket quota. But they're oh-so-close.
If a goalie fight is hockey's Holy Grail, this is drinking unicorn blood out of the Holy Grail while doing 90 in a Camaro Z28.
On Sunday, an Arizona minor league hockey team's owner, GM, captain, and marketing director perched themselves atop a scissor lift. They would not come down, they declared, until the team sold 300 season tickets. It has been 94 hours. The team has not sold 300 season tickets. They are still up there. Please send help.
This skate belongs to Eric Wellwood of the Adirondack Phantoms, the Flyers' AHL affiliate, who hurt himself during a game yesterday afternoon. The blood is his own, and the injury—a severed tendon in his right leg, just above the ankle—was of his own doing.
I don't need to remind of you Baby Geniuses, one of the all-time great Oscar snubs. (American Beauty won that year, which, *fart noise*.) Some babies get smart, and get up to hijinks, and Dom DeLuise is in it, and it's all held together by the star turns of the Fitzgerald triplets, playing separated-at-birth twins…
Turn down your speakers before you start the video. I'm not joking.
Fresh from your condiment-colored nightmares, here's a corporate mascot firing up a minor league hockey team, and also you. Oh, and clown trigger warning.
The Rapid City (S.D.) Rush of the
Central Hockey League coughed up a brilliant idea for their intermission entertainment Friday night. It was the Rush's annual College Night, so the team's brain trust thought it would be a blast to stage what was billed as The College Olympics. The premise? Select…
