Afternoon Delight

Afternoon Delight: Wednesday

  • A cool story out of Des Moines, where a long time fan (who is blind) now works for the team. Inspiring story.
  • Greatest Hockey Legends has more information on Frank St. Marseilles, the player featured in the Lowetide story I posted yesterday. This is one fascinating story. Hockey needs more of this.
  • A look back at former Oiler Dave Hunter by Hall of Fame Writer Jim Matheson. He’s no Tikkanen.
  • Mike Brophy heaps some woe on the Toronto Maple Leafs.
  • Rory Boylen of The Hockey News suggests introducing body checking at an earlier age. I agree with Boylen to an extent, but worry about scaring some kids out of the game.
  • Part I of Justin Bourne’s “A Hockey Player’s Life” over at Max Hockey. Lots of great stuff over at Max Hockey.
  • Finally, another installment of In the Crease from the oh so appealing Sports Report Girl. Your “in her crease” jokes in the comments.
