middles for the ages

WHIPPERSNAPPERS, TAKE NOTE OF these signs you’re getting old: 1. You groan involuntarily during routine exertion. 2. You start caring about inconsequential minutiae, like the girth of your cutlery. 3. Your eyebrows flow in the wind. 4. You refer to people as whippersnappers. Another symptom you might experience is nostalgia-itis, a frequent default to “back-in-the-day” thoughts. I’m a sufferer. Take our Countdown, ranking the 31 NHL teams’ groups of centers (pgs. 16-17). When the idea was floated, I began mental Googling some of the best I’ve seen in my time. Then I did some research to corroborate or refute my memory...

hotbeds trump hot homesteads

IT WAS MORE FIRING squad than press conference. Sure, the 2018 World Junior Championship delivered the first outdoor game in its history, Canada as gold medalist and Team USA’s Casey Mittelstadt as MVP. But another enduring image from the event was the pre-semifinal media availability in which organizers were blitzed with questions about poor attendance. Hockey-mad Buffalo is arguably the most successful U.S. NHL market on a pound-for-pound basis, coming close to sellouts regardless of where the Sabres sit in the standings and churning out great TV ratings even when the team misses the playoffs. As WJC host in 2011, the...

meet a mascot

(ROCKY W. WIDNER/NHL/GETTY IMAGES) S.J. SHARKIE | SAN JOSE SHARKS He may have an unoriginal name, but S.J. Sharkie has become one of the most recognizable mascots in the NHL. Debuting in January 1992, Sharkie has been a ring bearer at a wedding, a date to senior prom and was even run into by Theoren Fleury after a game. He also took center stage in one of the most memorable mascot moments of all-time. Before a game against Detroit in March 1999, Sharkie was tasked with propelling down from the arena rafters to hype up the fans. It was a great stunt –...

behind the mask

MICHAEL DIPIETRO | WINDSOR SPITFIRES When your team's logo and theme lend really well to exciting art, you don’t have to overthink it, and that’s what we get here from Canucks prospect DiPietro and artist Dave Gunnarsson. On the right cheek of the mask: a Spitfire fighter jet ripping through the clouds. On the left cheek, a higher-concept version, taking you inside the mouth of the snarling Spitfire for more of a 3-D experience. Mask by David Gunnarsson/Daveart.com ■...
