  • Hockey breaking into new markets also means that new language is created to describe the game. The newest instance of this is with Spanish broadcasters. [ESPN]
  • The World Juniors just ended with Finland taking the Gold and the USA getting silver. Here are the top five breakout players from the tournament. [NHL]
  • For all fantasy hockey players, released their mid season award winners. [NHL]
  • Mike Peluso has filed a federal law suit against the New Jersey Devils for hiding the extent of his head injury. This will be interesting to track alongside the class action lawsuit that was settled between the players and the league. [ESPN]
