Back in February, Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Redmond nearly died when his femoral artery was accidentally cut open by a teammate's skate during practice.

Jets Winger Evander Kane Gets Giant "YMCMB" Shaved Into His Head

You can only be so in touch with hip hop when you play for the Winnipeg Jets. They used to be the Atlanta Thrashers. Winnipeg has a few hip-hoppists fewer than Atlanta. (No, the Thrashers didn't have Atlanta's leading hip-hoppists—Outcast, Wocker Flocker Flame, Ti—there to support them, but they did have Lil Jon.) » 1/25/13 3:55pm 1/25/13 3:55pm

Detroit Lions Fans Are Next To Spearhead An Anti-Nickelback Campaign

It is nearly a proven fact by now that sports fans do not appreciate Nickelback disgracing their teams' venues with their loud, raspy wailing. The NHL made the mistake of announcing that the group would headline the Winnipeg Jets' home opener back in September, but organizers scrapped the plan—possibly thanks, at… » 11/03/11 12:40pm 11/03/11 12:40pm

There's A Campaign To Keep Nickelback From Performing At The Winnipeg…

No one knows why, but far too many dim marketing morons get paid ungodly amounts of money to "entertain" us at sporting events by hiring your mom's idea of a rockin' band. And just when you thought it couldn't get any worse than the NFL's decision to have Kid Rock, Lady Antebellum, and Maroon 5 ring in 2011 next week… » 9/01/11 4:50pm 9/01/11 4:50pm

A physical hockey player gets caught, intoxicated and bloated, doing something illegal. More than that, his actions were dangerous and self-destructive and put those around him at risk.

You Can Still Buy Atlanta Thrashers Season Tickets

Not 15 minutes ago, I called up the Thrashers and inquired about season tickets, of which there are plenty still available. And the nice lady who answered the phone was more than willing to take down my credit card information to put in my deposit. This despite the minor detail that the Thrashers are moving to… » 5/31/11 3:05pm 5/31/11 3:05pm

Don't Cry For Me Philips Arena: Atlanta Burned Again As Thrashers Jet…

Atlanta: heart of the South, birthplace of hockey in the Prairie Provinces. According to a report in The Globe and Mail, the Thrashers have been sold and will move to Winnipeg, with an announcement to be made as early as Tuesday.
