Leon Draisaitl’s Top 5 Games of 2019-20

Edmonton Oilers superstar Leon Draisaitl has taken his game to new heights this season. He is already the best player ever born and trained in Germany, and now he’s among the best players in the NHL. After scoring 50 goals and 105 points in 82 games in 2018-19, Draisaitl has put up 43 goals and 110 points in just 71 games this season. He has a 13-point lead in the Art Ross Trophy race over his teammate and best player in the world Connor McDavid. Related: Oilers’ Draisaitl Is Underapprecia...

Ducks coach Dallas Eakins reconnects with his family during coronavirus outbreak

Days are the same, but very, very different for Dallas Eakins in the age of the coronavirus pandemic. He’s up early in the morning, as usual, organizing his day and getting his instructions from his boss. He drinks a cup of coffee and spends quality time with his daughters as they prepare for school. Instead of heading to Honda Center or Great Park Ice, his usual routine, he takes a detour. He doesn’t go anywhere. Eakins, the Ducks’ coach, remains at home with his wife, Ingrid, and their daughte...

St. Louis Blues’ Top 20 Goal Scorers All-Time

In the history of the St. Louis Blues, we’ve seen many fantastic goal scorers. Some have spent their entire careers in St. Louis, and some are Hall of Famers who just stopped by. The rich history of the Blues is impressive for a 1967 expansion team. Here are the top 20. 1. Brett Hull: 527 Golden Brett played 744 games over 11 seasons with the Blues. He was traded to St. Louis with Steve Bozek from the Calgary Flames for Rob Ramage and Rick Wamsley, a pretty good deal for the Blues. Not ...

Devils’ 5 Best Defensemen of All-Time

Defensemen played a huge role in the New Jersey Devils’ first three Stanley Cup wins. The most legendary Devils blueliners are from that era (1995–2003) but many others have played their way into fans’ hearts. Let’s start with honorable mentions. A member of the original Devils – the Colorado Rockies relocated to New Jersey in 1982 – Joe Cirella was a mainstay through some very hard years. He twice led the Devils defensemen in scoring and represented the club in the 1984 All-Star game. ...

Map shows coronavirus cases in Orange County cities

The Orange County Health Care Agency has begun releasing more detailed information about people who have been diagnosed with the new coronavirus, including where they live. Officials are cautioning people about what the geographic information does and doesn’t show: It shows where someone diagnosed with COVID-19 lives, which may not be where they contracted the disease. It isn’t an indication of virus activity in any specific location. And because most cases probably aren’t being diagnosed or...

Ducks sign first-round draft pick Trevor Zegras of Boston University

Trevor Zegras’ play-making skills made him one of the breakout stars of the World Junior Championship last winter, a collection of jaw-dropping passes that prompted Ducks fans to count the days until he was signed, sealed and delivered. That day finally arrived on Friday – after one remarkable world juniors showing with Team USA and also one standout collegiate season at Boston University – when the Ducks signed Zegras to a three-year entry-level contract with an average annual value of $925,000...

Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf cooped up at home during coronavirus pandemic

Ryan Getzlaf said he spent three days this week building a chicken coop in his backyard. Off-ice workouts? Well, that’s a new one. His wood-frame construction job – plus chasing his four kids and two dogs around his Orange County house while under stay-at-home orders because of the COVID-19 pandemic – has kept the Ducks’ captain working up a pretty good sweat since the NHL suspended its season March 12. But a chicken coop? Seriously? Yes. Apparently, the Getzlaf household was out of eggs earlier...

Skunked at the GOMH Tonight, But Otters, Eagles, and Muskrats

44℉ Partly Cloudy, CalmSaw a couple of eagles, otters, and the first muskrats of the year,  The first one spooked me.  Didn't get any bites. Depending on how much rain we get and if there is any current which is currently non-existent if we get temps in the '50s on Sunday and Monday I could see me getting a bullhead early next week.

NHL postpones draft, awards show and combine because of coronavirus

With its 2019-20 season already suspended indefinitely because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the NHL announced Wednesday that it had postponed its annual entry draft and said it would announce a new date, venue and format “when details are finalized.” The draft was originally scheduled for June 26-27 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. “While today’s news is disappointing for fans of hockey in general and those here in Montreal in particular, this is the right decision to make under the circumstances,” ...

NHL says no decisions made on resumption of regular season or playoff format

The NHL couldn’t say Monday whether the remainder of the 2019-20 regular season would be played or what form the Stanley Cup playoffs might take when it’s safe enough to resume play, after the league suspended its season March 12 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. “The form and format of resumption of play scenarios will depend entirely on what transpires between now and when we are permitted and able to resume – and, ultimately, on timing and taking into account logistical constraints,” the NHL ...

Today in Hockey History: March 23

While there are still no new hockey games to talk about, we will continue our look back at the rich history of the sport.

The Great One Becomes the Greatest Wayne Gretzky has held this date in his heart for 26 years. On March 24, 1994, he scored the 802nd goal of his incredible career, break...

Best Current NHL Player From Each Canadian Province

There’s nothing more Canadian than the game of hockey, so it’s not surprising that more than 40 per cent of current NHLers are from the Great White North. You don’t have to look far to find terrific talent from the jagged Rockies, or the sprawling prairies, or the East Coast’s craggy cliffs.

The game of hockey still remains fourth among the major sports behind basketball, baseball and football in the United States, but the game has grown nationwide over the past few decades.

Kings, Ducks say none of their players have coronavirus symptoms

The teams didn’t say whether any players, coaches or staff had been tested, however. The Kings were the last team to play against the unnamed player and his Senators teammates in a March 11 game at Staples Center, the last to be compl...
