Memorial Cup Memories - Great new series on HockeyDocs

May. 12, 2019: As a kid, I grew up as a huge Cornwall Royals fan. I was too young to remember their 1972 Memorial Cup victory with the likes of Bob Murray, John Wensink, Al Sims, Blair MacDonald and Richard Brodeur. However, I fondly remember their back to back cups in 1980 and 1981 with star studded lineups that included Dan Daoust, Dale Hawerchuk, Doug Gilmour, Scott Arniel, Dave Ezard and others! FULL STORY

Apr. 7, 2019: It is that time of year again. It is time for the NHL Playoffs, where 16 teams compete for the Stanley Cup, first team to win 16 games will capture hockey's holy grail.

McDavid 'not happy' with situation in Edmonton

Apr. 2, 2019: You can hear the dejection in his voice. Clearly, Connor McDavid is frustrated with the state of the Edmonton Oilers. Former HometownHockey.ca columnist Rob Soria summed it up perfectly last night on Twitter. “A fair assessment to be sure and a situation I cannot see their young captain tolerating any longer.

BAG OF PUCKS - It appears Babcock wanted more depth at deadline

Mar. 19, 2019: Looks like Toronto Maple Leafs Head Coach Mike Babcock agrees with many of the team's fans who felt the Buds should have acquired some defensive help at the trade deadline. See this quote from yesterday - You're supposed to build the best program you can so you have as much depth so you don't miss people. FULL STORY
