  • Hockey and puppies! What could be better? The San Antonio Rampage, AHL affiliate of the Colorado Avalanche, hosted its ninth annual Pucks & Paws game. [The AHL]
  • A referee for the Western Collegiate Hockey Association remains in critical condition after suffering a head injury during a game in Grand Rapids, Mich. [WCHA]
  • Two years after suffering a cardiac event during a game, shocking the hockey world, Rich Peverley opened up about retiring and taking a job with the Dallas Stars front office and starting his own charity promoting heart health. [Today's Slapshot]
  • Here are some thoughts on a west coast trip that is pretty forgettable for the New York Rangers. [Blue Collar Blueshirts]
  • The Chicago Blackhawks have been in a little nightmare of their own lately, but they beat the Winnipeg Jets pretty handily. [The Committed Indian]
  • And in the category of individual performances...you guessed it - another slump. Thomas Vanek has been scratched in consecutive games. So, is it time for him to be bought out by the Minnesota Wild? [The Hockey Writers]
  • Do you want a new shirt from Raw Charge? Of corsi you do! (I'll see myself out...) [Gameday Depot]
