Welcome to the Predlines Morning Skate – November 22, 2013 edition. Glad you could join us this morning.
Ted Nolan returned to coach the Buffalo Sabres after Ron Rolston was fired earlier this month. Nolan is a member of the Ojibwe Nation of Ontario and has always been outspoken about his heritage. Nolan’s Sabres faced the Philadelphia Flyers last night who are coached by Craig Berube. Berube is part Cree from Alberta. Last night was the first time in NHL history that two opposing head coaches with Native American heritage faced each other. Click here for more info n this historic meeting.
In case you missed it, Clarke MacArthur of the Ottawa Senators made this pass to Kyle Turris against Minnesota on Wednesday night. It is up for early consideration for pass of the year. It’s too bad Turris didn’t fire it off the crossbar or something, but it was shorthanded.
This might be the most important link you click on all day. The ten best dives in the NHL from October. Fortunately, no Nashville Predators on the list, but a lot of other funny ones to check out.
How much would you pay for an unbreakable hockey stick? You might get your chance soon. Check out this article about an unbreakable one-piece stick that is in the final steps of development. The real question here is, if Shea Weber can break nets, can he break an unbreakable stick?
Thanks for stopping by this morning. Check back later for a recap of the Preds win last night over the Maple Leafs.
