- As you likely already know, Pat Burns and Gaye Stewart died last week. Add Rolland Rousseau to the list. He was a Quebec senior star who played two games with the Montreal Canadiens in 1952-53.
- I added three new profiles to the site this week: Lorne Davis (best known as Edmonton Oilers super-scout); Larry Wilson (father of Ron Wilson, the Toronto Maple Leafs coach) and Metro Prystai (what a great hockey name!) Research assist goes to Jennifer Conway.
- Bankrupt baseball star Lenny Dykstra's house was sold in a foreclosure auction for $760,000 and change. Why is that notable here? Dykstra bought the house off of Wayne Gretzky in 2007 for $18.5 million!
- Rough weekend for the Canucks, with back to back regulation time losses at home. It is the first time since January that the Canucks lost a regular season game in regulation on home ice.
- Carey Price's shutout of Toronto on Saturday was the first time the Habs have blanked the Leafs in Montreal since Ken Dryden did the deed on November 12th, 1977!
- Jarome Iginla is finally starting to find the back of the net, which is good news for my hockey pool. He had the 11th hat trick of his career on Friday. Only Kent Nilsson (14) and Theo Fleury (13) have had more in Calgary Flames history.
- Interestingly, only 3 of Iginla's 11 hat tricks have come on home ice.
