  • Minnesota Wild prospect and Boston College winger Matthew Boldy was able to dazzle the entire hockey world with his special goal in Team USA’s dominating 7-0 win over the Czech Republic on Tuesday afternoon. It was so sick folks. [Hockey Wilderness]

Off the trail...

  • Chicago is getting itself into trouble before training camp even starts. Some might say two of their three best forwards, have already been declared as out long-term with varioius ailments. Kirby Dach essentially shattered his wrist in the World Juniors and will be out 4-5 months, while captain Jonathan Toews has announced that he will be seeking medical attention after feeling “drained and lethargic” all off-season.
