Don't know about anyone else, but I've been liking the fact that they're trying out the "Ref Cam" during this tournament. Only bummer about it (if anything) is that for us watching on TV, so far we're only getting clips here and there. It'd be hella cool if they could get a constant broadcast of it throughout the game, like a "picture in picutre" type of thing.

This happened a few days ago, but it is, up to this point, probably the sickest goal we've seen in this tournament.


:rockon:


Watch/Hear the commentary made by ESPN's Spanish announce team:

Wait, they had a Spanish announce team...for hockey? Cool.   :thumbup


And reactions like this one from Morgan Rielly are why Team North America have rightfully been given nicknames like "Young Guns" and "The Kids".

That's just pure, youthful, unadulterated enjoyment of the game. :yep:

Could be interesting to see how this kid develops. :yep:

11-year-old Japanese boy could be next hockey prodigy

The next great hockey talent could very well come from Japan. Not the most traditional location, but a highlight reel showcasing 11-year-old Aito Iguchi that's circulating on the internet looks pretty convincing.

The native of Saitama has moves that suggest he could have a future in NHL, or at the very least rival the young talent in North America.

After seeing this new video, yeah...this kid is showing major potential. :yep:

11-year-old hockey sensation continues to amaze

Remember the 11-year-old hockey prodigy Aito Iguchi? It's hard to forget the young player's unbelievable stick-handling skill.

In case you weren't already convinced, the potential future hockey star has a part two to his wildly popular highlight reel.

The kid has undeniable talent, but take another look and decide for yourself.

It's been a couple of years, but yeah, he's still around, and still showing some slick skills. :yep:

Should've figured that Teemu wouldn't be the only Selanne we'd see playing hockey. His son Eetu recently commited to play for a Division 1 College.

A trailblazer for Women's Hockey. A 5-time Olympic medalist (4 gold, 1 silver). First female position player (i.e. not a goalie) on a men's professional hockey team. And now, aspiring medical doctor and mother. Hayley Wickenheiser is retiring after a 23-year competitive hockey career with the Candaian National Women's team.

Another step forward has been taken in trying to, as they say, "grow the game" in Asia. And seeing as how the next Winter Olympics are taking place in Pyeongchang, South Korea, there's almost something poetic about this happening now.

Here's the shootout winner that clinched it for them: https://twitter.com/BradyTrett/status/858054574074060800


Game highlights from the IIHF's 2017 World Championships YouTube channel:




Part of me is hella stoked that this is going to happen next year. At the same time, part of me is expecting them to get heavily whupped if/when they play the usual "Big 5" powerhouses (Canada, US, Finland, Sweden, Russia).  :lol:

Another Winter Olympics is soon to be upon us, and as such, both Canada and the U.S. have unveiled the jerseys that the men's, women's, and sledge hockey teams will be wearing.

Team USA -

Looks like Nike is once again the provider of the Olympic jerseys, but like.....seriously, WTF is up with that COMPLETELY ugly-ass-bullshit design is that they put on the sleeves?!?!?

Update. Nike has now started to officially unveil the Olympic hockey jerseys they've come up with. Not exactly sure why they're only providing individual looks at the jerseys of 4 countries, and even then it's really only 3 countries, since they're only showing us half of Russia's set. There's really no reason why they couldn't have provided a full look at ALL the jerseys from ALL of the countries that will be playing. Hopefully they update and post more, after which I'll just have to update this post.
