<h2>On This Day</h2>
dave’s trip through hockey’s history return with a story of how the <a href="https://www.nytimes.com/1984/01/29/sports/kings-stop-gretzky-scoring-streak-at-51-games.html">LA Kings, on this day in 1984 stopped The Great One’s march of scoring game at 51</a>!!
<h2>A bite taken out of P.K. Subban?!</h2>
The guys were all in Vegas for this one! During the Predators’ first franchise win in Vegas, P.K. Subban appeared to have a bite taken out of him by Knights player Edouard Bellamare….and they <a href="https://larrybrownsports.com/hockey/pk-subban-pierre-edouard-bellemare-bite-finger/482154">both had their view on it!</a>

<h2>All Star Weekend showcases the Future of the NHL</h2>
This weekend saw the 2019 All Star weekend take place in San Jose, and of all the stalking points (we’ll get to some others soon) the revaluation of the new <a href="https://www.cbssports.com/nhl/news/2019-nhl-all-star-game-bad-music-new-technology-boring-play-and-other-takeaways/">technology</a> that will make it’s way to the League was a major talking point.

2020 Winter Classic Announced

Another piece of exciting news that hit the presses in San Jose this weekend was the announcement of the 2020 Winter Classic, which will feature two teams yet to play outdoors – The Dallas Stars and John’s own Nashville Predators, who will meet at Dallas’ Cotton Bowl.

And because of who we are and the fact that we LOVE jerseys, here’s some very early concepts for they’re expected to wear on the big day!

Junior Player suffers Frostbite!

A Minnesotan Junior player suffered frostbite whilst playing in an outdoor game close to the Canadian border in almost -30 degree conditions. Was there a line crossed by coaches and those responsible for the players here?


All-Star women shine, but did the NHL tarnish it a bit?

The aforementioned All Star weekend is just over, and we say a couple of firsts, as women played a far greater role than ever before. Kendall Coyne became the first woman to ever take part in an official event at the showcase as she took part in the speed skating competition, finishing 7th out of 8, and just a second behind Conor McDavid.
Meanwhile, Brianna Decker took to the ice to act as the display for the crowd and TV audience for the passing skill contest, only to beat all the NHL players’ times comfortably. However – the NHL chose not to recognise this, and instead equipment supplier CCM stepped up and handed Decker $25,000 as a gesture. The winning male player, Oilers’ forward Leon Draisaitl also earned $25k, but that payment was an official NHL payment for ‘winning’…
