The Continental Cup Super Finals started today and we saw a thriller and a blowout.
A four goal second period and a hot goalie made the difference during today’s semi final matches.
What a tournament it turned out to be. Can’t say I was sold after the first few days but the pace of play picked up and so did the competitiveness.
Canada vs Czech Republic Usually when you see Canada matched up against an opponent that is not one of the “Core Four” (USA, Sweden, Finland and Russia), you expect a blowout. Do not expect that to be the case in this Semi Final. This isn’t your typical Czech Republic team […]
There’s never a boring day in the World Junior Hockey Championship.
If you got the chance to watch the Spengler Cup you would know that it had a different feel for the 91st edition.

When people talk about hockey towns and cities what comes to your mind? Mine ever since I was little goes straight to the place I see have the most dedication to the game and that’s the Spengler Cup. One of the most underrated events in the hockey world due to […]
Club hockey? Laugh out loud, right? Well the ACHA is proving that the league of beauties is providing a much different college hockey experience then close to 75 per cent of NCAA D3 schools. That difference is simple: fans, facilities, pride. Ask anyone playing in front of thousands of fans […]

The single biggest thing I found transitioning from Bryn Athyn College (ACHA) to minor pro hockey in Sweden was one of the most obvious, the language barrier. It took a bit of work and time to start to understand the language but interact in small portions with teammates and people […]
As a Canadian goaltender, the first thing that I can tell you is the difference between both countries is the emphasis on skill over team management. In Canada, we do focus on skill and player development from a young age, but add in tactics and plays very early on too. […]
