Gary Suter

Gary Suter enjoyed 17 seasons as one of the NHL’s most productive defensemen. He won the Calder Trophy as the league’s top rookies in 1985-86 and won a Stanley Cup in 1989 with the Calgary Flames. Suter also had a knack for dishing out some of the game’s more notable acts of violence. Here’s a look at four of Suter’s most despicable incidents.

They’re calling it “Flight Plan” – a behind the scenes look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ preparing for the 2013 Entry Draft, in which they would end up with six players.

The Flyers have a pretty successful track record over recent drafts, so it’s neat to peer into the room and pick up what you can. I thought it seemed a little confrontational, but I suppose that’s only natural when you’re making decisions that’ll alter the course of the franchise for years to come.

For your reference, the Flyers ended up with:

ROUND 1
11th (D) SAMUEL MORIN, 6-6, 202-lb, Rimouski, QMJHL

ROUND 2
41st (D) ROBERT HAGG, 6-2, 193-lb, MODO JR., SWE

ROUND 3
72nd (LW) TYRELL GOULBOURNE, 5-11, 195-lb, Kelowna, WHL

ROUND 5
132nd (D) TERRANCE AMOROSA, 6-1, 185-lb, Holderness High School

ROUND 6
162nd (G) MERRICK MADSEN, 6-4, 194-lb, Proctor High School

ROUND 7
192 (D) DAVID DRAKE, 6-3, 153-lb, Des Moines, USHL

 

Docked points for posting a sort of “selfie” Instagram vid, but as the title says…damn, dem hands. Stick-handling a golf ball.

While you don’t quite get this reaction from the video, it’s still a pretty neat two minute clip.

If the Chicago Blackhawks win in Boston tonight, captain Jonathan Toews will be handed the Stanley Cup. That does not mean, however, that it is in the building like we’re told. Here’s a neat clip about the actual process of getting the Cup presentation ready.

Can we agree to just mic everyone up all the time? I enjoyed Seguin describing his celebration.

Both anthem singers have become celebrities of sort for doing what they do. Take a couple minutes to hear what Rene Rancourt and Jim Cornelison have to say about doing what they do.
