Updates

It's been a while since I alerted anyone of some of the changes occurring on this very blog, so I thought I'd take a few moments to inform everyone reading that there have been some updates to this site. Most are additions to certain sections, or the creation of brand-new sections on the right. In any case, I'll provide a quick update so that everyone is up-to-speed.

First and foremost, there have been some additions to the Hockey Blog list to the right. I'd like to welcome the highly entertaining Barry Melrose Rocks, Christy's essential Behind The Jersey blog, the unofficial Philadelphia Flyers homepage in Flyers Flies, the informative Going Five Hole, and the essential Chicago Blackhawks site in Second City Hockey. Welcome to the list, and I will be checking your sites regularly for any and all entertaining and informative stories. Thank you for your hard work thus far, and your continued writing in the future!

In the section entitled Other Important Places to the right, there have also been a few additions made. An excellent site that contains jersey numbers of all NHL players, both active and retired, has been added, called "Jersey Numbers For All NHL Players". It is a fabulous resource. There is also a great resource for old-time NHL photos on that list, called "Old-Time Hockey Photographs". The photos of the old-time NHL goalies is amazing, and there are a few excellent photos in there of teams rarely seen in living colour. Many thanks to both these sites for their hard work and dedication.

Teebz's Book Club is now three books large on the right-hand side. If you're looking for good hockey literature, please visit this section. These books would make excellent Christmas gifts for any hockey fan, and they are an excellent resource for hockey history for any hockey trivia buff.

In the Highly-Clicked Articles section, there was the addition of another "You're Wearing That" article. This new article, entitled "Scary Day Edition", was published on Halloween of this year, and it contains some interesting jersey choices. The other four "You're Wearing That" articles are there as well, and are always good for laugh when looking at how some teams dressed themselves.

Also updated under that section is the "Patch It Up" articles. The Bill Wirtz patch that the Blackhawks are wearing has been added. The New Jersey Devils' patch for the opening of the the Prudential Center has been added to their section. The Islanders have had their Al Arbour patches to their section. And lastly, the Pittsburgh Penguins had their "250 patch" added to their section as well.

Last in the additions portion of the update, there is an NHL News widget that was added that will link you back to all of the current news on the NHL.com site. It is a great place to find any additional stories on the NHL that I may not have covered on here.

I am super busy with work, having just got off of two weeks worth of vacation, so I don't have much time to write. However, with my routine getting back to normal, my regular babble about hockey will resume.

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!

Sweet updates and thanks for the info!

p.s. what's up with the sticks on the ice EVERY TIME. Just a friendly neighborhood reminder?

No problem, CKim! It is my pleasure for people to stay up-to-date in the hockey rumblings from bloggers around the globe.

As for the reminder, it's just a tagline - a friendly closing remark that enables hockey players to have more success. If you carry your stick high, you're asking to be called for a penalty, putting your team in a PK situation. Also, by keeping your stick on the ice, you're bound to score more goals because your stick is always in position for a shot, pass, or deflection. And scoring goals is a good thing.

Personall, it's something the resonated with me since my days as a tyke in hockey, and it has served me well as I play beer league hockey now. :o)
