Seen at the Kings/Wings game today. She must be so proud.

He is 20-year-old Petr Mrazek, and he appears to be The Coolest Guy. Petr Griffin in the house.

I wish him the very best of luck. I’m already a fan.

yak and jag 2

There’s something fitting about the sound “Yak” being associated with the sound “Jag,” but that could just be coming from someone who spends too much time at the pub. Anyway, today Nail Yakupov shared a picture of himself at 11-years old during the last lockout on Twitter, standing alongside then-NHL great Jaromir Jagr. I can’t believe Jagr is still in the league.

Really, the best part of the whole tweet is the wording though. If the picture’s not for you, I suspect you’ll enjoy the text.

The real #1 best pic: can't explain why I love it so much.

I never understood why so many of my teammates chose not to wear their fake teeth. I mean, I get it during the game – having your teeth in doesn’t provide you with a benefit, so why risk a complication – but still: we’re headed out to a movie, buddy, are they that hard to put in? The no-tooth thing is part of the whole hockey player vibe though, I guess. If you’re going as a hockey player for Halloween, you’d inevitably black out a tooth.

Related: if you were going as a hockey player for Halloween, you’d try to look as much as like Zack Kassian as humanly possible.

Dude is off to a great start in Vancouver, with five goals and a number of fights already under his belt through eight games, which has earned him a promotion to the top line alongside the Sedins. It’s this great start that got my attention, and brought me to his Getty Images page.

And HOLY CRAP: Zack Kassian is (unintentionally?) hilarious. I don’t actually know a whole ton about the guy aside from the fact that he takes amazing pictures. I’ve selected the ten best after eight games for your viewing pleasure, and I intend to stay on this throughout the season. Let’s dive in.

Don’t worry, the looks get more blank as we go.

Look, I’m in agreement with you: “_____ing,” in regards to some damn pose an NFL quarterback made or makes frequently is a terrible, awful trend. First there was Tebowing, then there was Griffining, and now there’s “Kaepernicking,” which is to kiss your right bicep after scoring a touchdown, (and yes, Colin Kaepernick DID get the term trademarked, don’t worry). Us average folk apparently like to mimic these motions when we do well at average stuff, like successfully blending a smoothie, or whatever.

All that said, I do sort of appreciate Logan Couture throwing a little love the way of his fellow athletes in California by Kaepernicking after scoring against the Oilers last night. And hey, when you’re undefeated after seven games, you’re allowed to have a little fun.

Okay, one and done, cool. Let’s just not make a habit of this.

Buffalo Sabres’ teammates John Scott (6’8″, 270 pounds) and Nathan Gerbe (5’5″, 178 pounds) are, as you may have noticed from the numbers, slightly different heights. This is adorable.

Not quite Manute Bol and Spud Webb, but it’s gotta be as close as hockey’s gonna get.
