Usually, when you play ice hockey you play it on the side of the ice where the air is. Not these divers. They decided to take a puck and a pair of hockey sticks underwater in a frozen lake and do a bit of knocking around on the wrong side of the ice. Read more...

It’s been a rough season for the Los Angeles Kings. The defending Stanley Cup champs have been mediocre bordering on bad, riding into last night’s game against the Flames with a 23-18-12 record, five points out of the last Western Conference playoff spot. Highly paid team leader Mike Richards has been demoted to the minor leagues. Meanwhile, Jonathan Quick has looked […]
QUICK SMASH. Jonathan Quick's goalie stick is as dead as dead can be. After the Calgary Flames scored while probably interfering with the Los Angeles Kings' netminder, Quick turned into a yellow hockey Hulk and destroyed his stick. There is no mercy for Quick's equipment when he's angry.

Russel Cook writes of a radio interview with Climate Depot’s Marc Morano: Fabulous interview as usual with Jan Mickelson yesterday, but if you didn’t catch it, the line by caller “Steve” right after the interview starting at the 1:01:55 point is worth framing: Caller Steve: Whatever side says ‘oh, well, the debate’s settled, we’re not…
Poor Zach Parise has had a pretty rough season. His team has underachieved, his dad passed away, and he’s sustained a couple of pretty nasty facial injuries.

The sport involves very long sticks, extremely sharp blades, and small pieces of frozen rubber hurtling around the rink at 100 miles per hour. Face protection in those conditions seems prudent, but who am I to tell a grown adult what to do? Read more...
Miss Canada currently is flooring observers with her decision on the best way to stick out from the crowd. That’s because she chose a hockey stick as the appropriate way to prove she’s unique. And the determinedly grinning girl is just...Show More Summary

No one is safe from his vicious defense; not even himself. Mitchell Skiba plays defense for the Alpena Flyers in the Tier III Midwest League, and clearly his stick checks are something to watch out for. Skiba is such a vicious physical force on the ice, apparently, that even if he lets his guard down for just a second, he'll be taken out. Show More Summary
The sports video of the year so far.
Mitchell Skiba has given the sports world its first fail of 2015.
All he could do was run away and leave that stick behind. It is a free stick now. Mitchell Skiba of the Alpena Flyers, a Tier III junior hockey team in Alpena, Michigan, was skating off the ice when he forgot to turn his stick vertically. Show More Summary
