  • Age is just a number, a statement nobody holds near and dear to their heart as much as Jaromir Jagr. The 51-year-old just started his 36th hockey season, playing with the team he owns, Kladno.
  • The PWHL Ottawa team can't keep up with fan demand. They sold out their initial ticket offering and now have sold out the additional seats they have released. The Ottawa hockey community is fully embracing this team before it has even played a single game, it is truly heartwarming to see.
  • Chasing records is stressful and Alexander Ovechkin is certainly feeling it. He is currently on a 13-game goal drought but he maintains he is confident he will get his touch back.
  • What is going on with Nolan Patrick? We're not sure, but he could be retiring or maybe not? The 2017 second-overall draft pick was reported to have retired due to ongoing migraine disorder. However, hours later, it seems that these reports are being debunked by Patrick himself.
  • Cassie Campbell-Pascal has decided to move on from her broadcasting career with Sportsnet. Instead, she will take her extensive knowledge and expertise to the PWHL where she has taken the role of special advisor to the league.
  • In a heartwarming story, Washington Capitals' Ivan Miroshnichenko made his NHL debut last night 21 months after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
