Ken Dryden's 'Game Change' explores Steve Montador's struggles | ESPN
An excerpt from Ken Dryden's new book "Game Change" examines hockey's complicated history with head injuries through the lens of Steve Montador, a defenseman who died in 2015 at age 35 following a 10-year NHL career and multiple concussions.

Kariya finally gets closure with Hall of Fame induction | Sportsnet
"Kariya is emerging from the shadows – from a private life of surfing and anonymity in Southern California – to accept hockey’s highest honour. The 43-year-old would quibble with that characterization, but get this: When he stood alongside Selanne and the other inductees holding a hockey stick in a Friday afternoon photo-op, it was the first time he’d touched one since April 10, 2010.

His final NHL game."

For Selanne, road to Hall of Fame included street hockey in Winnipeg | NHL
Congratulations to Teemu Selanne, not just for making the hall of fame, but for being the only Anaheim Ducks' player that I've ever liked. No, Kariya doesn't count. As far as I’m concerned, Kariya is a former Predator, not a former Duck (however wrong that may be).

Forget 50 goals, Nikita Kucherov is shooting for 60 this season | The Hockey News
16 goals in 17 games. Something truly special is happening down in Tampa. I just hope people around the country are paying attention.
